What I'm about to say will probably ruffle a few feathers, but that doesn't make it less true.....
I was having a conversation with a PT today, and explaining that a Personal Trainer that struggles with clients to stick to weight management, and simply states,
"The reason you are not losing weight is that you need to eat less calories."
Is a bit like going to your GP with a broken leg in a cast and the Doctor stating,
"The reason that your leg is hurting you is that it is broken. Give it 6 weeks and it will probably stop."
Now your GP is not far wrong - but thats not why you went to see your GP now really was it? Your Doctor could have seen if you could get referred to a physiotherapist, give you some pain killers or see if there was something nutritionally that could be done to promote healing.
Do you follow me?
There is a difference between instructing and Coaching. While being "Overweight, "Obese" and having body fat are real physical phenomena, "Fatness" is a state of mind.
Often, without addressing the underlying issues you are just pissing in the wind.
This is where Personal Trainers struggle with "compliance" and to get deeper results for you.
Just a thought.
