Why is consistency and tracking important for weight loss?

Starting your weight loss journey can be exciting, you get the the gym drop a few kilos in your first few weeks and it feels great! But one thing many tend to sacrifice in the early days of their weight loss journey is the LONG TERM plan!
-
Believe it or not, most people I chat to run into the issue of finding it hard to maintain their losses because they are NOT eating enough, yet they have no idea!
-
The first logical thing to do is reduce your intake, eat less food! BUT if you are not doing this properly with consistency and tracking you could very easily run into trouble down the track! 
-
My advice, If you are starting a weight loss journey, track your CURRENT intake BEFORE you change anything! Your body may be used to an intake of 2000+ calories a day and you don't even know it, So for you then to go on the next 1200 calorie fad diet and start training like a lunatic...you aren't doing yourself any favours! 
-
The typical outcome for this is hitting a wall, being too tired to hit to gym, binge eating, craving and a wave in results (1 step forward, 2 steps back). 
-
The Goal is to keep it realistic, eat as much food as you can while training at a realistic rate AND STILL BURN FAT/LOSE THE WEIGHT! 😊πŸ”₯

FYI this is me in my current state.. due to working mostly on mobility and not being able to train in my normal ways... I have hardly trained in over a month!!! Keeping my routine realistic allows me to stay in shape and keep my abs all year round regardless of indulging a little too much or not being able to hit the gym πŸ˜πŸ’•
