I have decided to give up with my present gym membership doing the tread mill, rowing, cycling etc and go in favour with my personal trainer's sessions of HIIT (High Interval Impact Training) in addition to my hourly sessions with her.
The thing is, I have to cease calorie counting and that is so very difficult to do. The knowledge is that you fuel your body so that you burn fat and build lean muscle which means the more lean muscle you have the more efficient your metabolism will be i.e it shifts unwanted fat. You have to eat more protein in order to feed the muscles as they work harder. I'm just finding it really difficult and it goes against the grain to know that I will need to eat butter, cream and quit the low fat stuff!
I guess I am going to gain weight initially, so please bear with me if my weight loss is on hold until my system starts responding to this new way of thinking (for me) and eating.
Does anyone else do this routine and if so, how are you finding it?
Many thanks for listening to my plight.
