    A lot of our clients ask us how to approach their training and nutrition while on holidays. I used to be in this mentality where I would restrict leading up to a holiday, then I would use the holiday as a binge, free-for-all. I'd drink a heap of alcohol every day and eat sh*t food. Then, after my holidays, I'd go right back to the restrictive diet. I don't do that anymore, and I definitely didn't do that on Craig and I's most recent holiday, so we thought this would be a good one to hop on and discuss!

    Why you should look at weight loss over weeks/months not days/weeks with Craig McDonald

    A lot of women are tied to the scales, and I get it. I one was too. Yet, the truth is that throughout this process, the scales go up and down as you lose body fat. Unfortunately, we are so conditioned to see it drop quickly and every day, but this isn't sustainable or entirely accurate.Weight can fluctuate day to day even if you are 100% consistent with your food and training. So, Craig and I thought it was a good idea to jump on and go over why it's important to measure weight loss over weeks and months, not days. Once you get rid of that obsession with the scale and look at it as another data point, you get so much more freedom and actually start getting the results you want. In this episode, Craig and I discuss:➡️Why weight fluctuates day to day even if you're 100% consistent with your nutrition, training and movement ➡️How weight changes throughout your cycle➡️How stress impacts the scale➡️What sustainable weight loss actually is➡️Why body measurements matter not just scale weight ➡️Why starving yourself isn't the answer to losing body fat➡️Why you should be looking at your weight loss over weeks/months not days/weeks➡️Why it's important to weigh daily under the same conditions and average that number at the end of the week LINKS Follow Kitty on Instagram

    Most of the women who join our program have cycled through a number of diets that drastically cut calories and/or food groups.

I was listening to a coaching call Craig did a few weeks ago and one of the clients asked about the 'phases' they get allocated by their coach and why we do this and what phase is appropriate when?
