Setting new weight loss goals

setting new weight loss goals

 Virtual Personal Trainer unique method consists of setting different weight and calorie deficit goals at different timings. The reason is to avoid potential "weight loss plateaus" and psychological exhaustion. A weight loss plateau is what happens when an earlier caloric deficit we have created has suddenly stopped to exist.


There are multiple reasons why this might be happening but let's just summarise it by naming the two most important ones:

The reasons

  • the Energy Balance ("Calories In vs Calories Out") always holds true. In other words, the calorie intake that once worked for us when we were 250 lbs does not work any more once you lose and weight 200 lbs.
  • The other reason is purely psychological. Most of us will quit any weight loss program if we are expecting to lose too many pounds at once because most likely we won't be able to do that and also it is not recommended since we could put our health in risk. Human psychology and motivation however seem to work much better by distributing weight loss over different periods of time. In other words, let's say starting at 223 lbs (101 kgs)(based on my own clinical case), my first goal was to lose 27 lbs, then another 25 lbs and finally another 25 lbs. If I had planned to lose 77 lbs (35 kgs) at once I would have probably quit immediately since, as mentioned above, most human beings won't be able achieve that goal at once. Notice that weight goals should be complementary with calorie goals. That is to say, from the original 3000 kcals/day i was eating when I was 223 lbs, my first goal was to reduce it to 2500 kcals. Second and third goals were 1800 and 1600 respectively, all complemented with a little bit of exercise. Finally, when I reached my ideal weight of 143 lbs, I was also able to make of it a life style over the time, and most importantly, i was also able to actually increase my daily calorie intake to an average of 1800-2000 kcals/day increasing my activity level, and I have managed to maintain this new life style through the years and most likely it will last forever. Note:  Energy Balance and Daily Calorie Intake automatic calculations and constant updates can be easily done through our best seller app).

Same goes with new fitness goals
