I have always wondered why many people that I know who are struggling to lose weight, actually do all the ‘right’ things yet instead of losing they even get to gain more.
I have noticed this pattern more in women in their 30s and older. They have layers of fat sticking to some particular areas of their body and they never get to budge.
I have also seen firsthand what a poor body image can do to you as an individual. This is worse for women as they are usually the target of body shaming.
If you have been doing the same thing for a long time with no results, it would be foolhardy to continue doing same.
Here are some of those things you have been doing wrong.
Sticking to an exercise routine
Most body gym instructors would bet their life on it that repeating the same moves constantly will help drop your body weight. But if that truly works for everyone you won’t be reading this right now.
What they don’t tell you or some don’t know is that when you stick to a routine, your body has the tendency to get used to it and they stop working for you.
And you actually start to add on more weight. That just sucks, right!
Putting all your hopes on Cardio
There is almost no exercise regimen that does not involve cardio these days. Everyone is talking about how you can stay fit and healthy using cardio. However, no one is talking about cardio can actually hamper your metabolism.
Worse yet, cardio can actually make your heart weaker! That’s like the most damning thing to hear! Or are you ready to face me and call me a barefaced liar based on these facts?
The thing is that I didn’t make it all up. They are all from the findings of Dr Kathryn Harney, the creator of the Curve Ball Effect.
Sticking to isolation weight training
The thing with this type of fitness exercise is that it concentrates on training a group of muscles so as to build your resistance. What you may not know is that your body gets used to this too and actually lowers your body’s ability to lose fat.
Concentrating on certain body areas
I have heard this saying all too often- ‘I just want to work on my stomach and thighs and nothing else.’ Many weight loss programs even base their offer on this kind of fad.
The truth is that weight loss is supposed to be all-rounder effect – that is, if you are actually looking to be generally healthy and fit. The body does not work in such a way that allows for successful selective weight loss.
You are probably scowling at me right now, thinking I am ready to spoil your gym business but that is not the case at all.
Actually, all the above listed routines have been known to work for several people. No, I’m not eating my own words. Just stay with me a little longer to understand what I mean.
Who is the Curve Ball Effect for?
When you have tried several weight loss programs without any results, it can get very frustrating and some people would just stop altogether. It is worse when people call you fat and lazy or they just tell you point blank to stop eating.
That would hurt so bad because you know of all the efforts you’ve put into it. If someone has made you feel bad on that count, excuse their ignorance because if they knew the real facts they won’t be saying such unless they are naturally mean.
The problem you are dealing with is called physical homeostasis. That word sounds like a big mouthful but don’t worry you don’t have to be stuck on its seeming complexity or even learn how to spell it. As long as you understand how it relates to your inability to lose weight, it’s just fine.
So, I will pick on some of the pointers that Dr Kathryn uses to identify people with physical homeostasis.
People who crave sugar and sugary snacks
We all tend to have the sweet tongue syndrome but if you find yourself always craving sugar in large amount and at odd times, you should know something is wrong.
I will use the example of catching my mum taking ice cream out of the fridge in the wee hours while I tried to get some water from the kitchen. She stood with the tub of ice cream in her head, hanging her head in guilt like a little girl. She admitted that she could not control that urge no matter how hard she tried to.
If you can see yourself in the scenario I just painted above, stop sweating it and blaming yourself for not losing weight despite your efforts.
People who have constant fatigue
Tiredness happens to everyone especially when you have pushed yourself hard. But if you find that you always feel perpetually tired whether you have been lying on the couch all day or weeding in your garden, then you should pay attention to that signal as your body is trying to tell you some thing.
People who have fat in particular body areas
It is usual for most persons to struggle with fat in specific body areas such as the thighs, stomach, butt and arms. Of course, that’s where we got the terms – pot belly and grandmother’s arms from.
So, if you are struggling with losing fat in any or some of those specified areas, the average dieting or exercise regimen will not work for you.
People who have a low body esteem
Imagine loathing your own physical appearance. You always go out hiding behind your shapeless clothes or spend the day feeling choked in uncomfortable body shaping underwear.
If all this is you, you may be very close to your breaking point and that’s why the Curve Ball Effect by Dr Kathryn Harney is just what you need.
What you get when you sign up
All over the body tone
The series of workouts have been designed to create an overall effect on your body. It is from this technique that the program gets its name – the Curve ball effect because as you follow its mechanics your body will revive its original balance.
One other thing that can be discouraging about most fitness programs is that they take forever to show results or never do. However, on this one you can start seeing changes in your body as early as in two days!
Ease of execution
The place and time to carry out your exercise are always big on the list of obstacles to your fitness. You either complain of being too busy or not being able to hit the gym as frequently as you should.
With this Curve Ball Effect by Dr Kathryn, you can’t ride on the back of those kind of excuses as the movements can be carried out in just a few minutes and can be done anywhere.
There is more but I will leave you to discover the rest on your own.
One of the reasons why this fitness program stands out for me is that it works for different people. It is not just for only men or women. Even athletes who often require specialized fitness routines were shown to have benefited from this program. They lost so much weight that they have not been able to achieve when they were using other workout routines.
