new-years-resolutionsIs your New Year’s resolution to get fit and lose weight? If you answered yes, then Back to Function wants to help you achieve your goals.

It is estimated that over 95% of diets fail to keep the weight off permanently. Diets are a short-term solution to a long-term issue. If you want to get yourself back to ideal body weight, you need to change your lifestyle habits. The good news is that these healthy lifestyle habits are all common sense things that you already know.

There are 2 simple things that will help you lose that extra weight:

    1. Eat LESS
    2. Move MORE

Of course we can make it more complicated by picking foods that are more nutrient dense and avoiding foods that are nutrient poor and calorie dense. We can even select specific exercises that will help you burn more calories even AFTER your workout is over. But the 2 basic things you can do to help yourself achieve your weight loss and fitness goals are to Eat LESS and Move MORE!

Here is a video from Mad TV that explains this concept:

Hopefully you laughed a little during that skit, but know that at BTF we are dedicated to helping you live a healthier life.

You would also receive instruction for exercises to perform at home in order to maximize your weight loss and nutrition advice to selecting the right foods for you.
