Most people often confuse the 2 they rely on the scales to determine their progress.(Only to set them up for disappointment) When in reality they should think about their visual appearance how they look feel and also body composition such as Fat Mass and Non-Fat mass in your body.

The “calories in” versus “calories out” law
As a personal trainer i see many people relate to eating high dense calorie foods such as a Pizza or Burger and getting fat. The truth is It doesn't.
Yes It's not a cause and effect relationship where "junk food" automatically turns into fat. Eating too many calories equals gaining fat and because junk food is very high in calories, it often leads to fat gain, but that’s the only correlation.
The bottom line? As far as your favourite foods go, our philosophy is that depriving yourself completely of your favorite foods is a great way to make yourself miserable and to be almost certain that you fall off your diet very quickly.
You can allow yourself your favourite foods as long as you acknowledge that calories do count and you obey the law of calorie balance, and plan accordingly to consistently create this calorie deficit.
I feel that the thing to remember for long-term...
The difference between maintanance and progression
Every thing you read or watch in the fitness space has some promise or quick fix.
I see it often that quick weight loss of bodyweight gives you a greater chance of having the reverse effect and that can be catasrophic.
So you may ask what does impress me? And What gets my attention?
I pay attention to what I call the "Progressors" - those are the people who have kept improving over a slow course of time and pushing the boundaries in a progressive way without training to failure or injuring themselve's its the small wins .

The list of pain-fighting foods might surprise you.
From fruits such as red grapes and cherries, to herbs and spices such as ginger and turmeric, there's natural relief in quite a number of readily available, healthy foods.
1. Red Grapes
This deeply hued fruit contains resveratrol, a powerful compound that blocks the enzymes that contribute to tissue degeneration.
Long used as a digestive aid, ginger is also an effective painkiller. Almost two-thirds of patients with chronic knee pain reported less soreness upon standing after taking a ginger extract.
Turmeric also seems to inhibit the destruction of joints from arthritis, Turmeric inhibits a protein called NF-kB; when turned on, this protein activates the body's inflammatory response, leading to achy joints.

Chances are you have tried a few things when it comes to weight loss !
If you're serious about trading "fat" for "fit," here's how to eliminate one of the biggest roadblocks to your success. Forget About "Will Power." It's Worse Than Useless!
Just imagine for a moment what would happen in your life if all of your motivations--both conscious and unconscious--were aligned toward your success.
Now it would be just as hard to fail as it once was to succeed! Sounds almost too good to be true, doesn't it? But hundreds of my clients have already done it.
In fact, people that have been working with me over 12 weeks (Both online and face to face) are now experiencing the kind of success they'd once only dreamed about.
One reason people are failing to control their weight is because of all-or-none thinking, i. e, "I can't eat ANY pizza EVER again!" or, "I have to follow my diet 100% or not at all.
"In my experience, all or none thinking is one of the biggest causes of diet failure. It's far better from a psychological perspective to eat your pizza; simply enjoy it infrequently and in small quantities.
Think of you on a diet like a pressure cooker on a burner. The longer you keep that pot on the heat, the more the steam pressure builds up inside. If there's no outlet or release valve on that thing, eventually the pressure builds up so much that even if it's made of steel and the lid is bolted down, she's gonna blow, sooner or later.
Well, in the beginning, you might think your willpower is made of steel and that you're bolted tighter than a submarine hatch, but the longer you're on a diet with no relief, the greater the pressure builds up until YOU blow...
Think about how many times you’ve said, “I’ve been so good this week, I deserve a treat.” or “I’ve completely gorged myself today. "
When you think about it like that, no wonder most people are on the sea saw and merri go round of healthy eating and exercise and often have a tough time sticking with either.
"When people learn to get away from this learned mindset, and treat both food and exercise as ways to fuel and care for their bodies, they are more likely to find mind and body balance,”
