Research shows that people who follow a higher protein weight loss plan combined with 3 resistance exercise sessions per week lose 40% more fat mass than people who follow a high carbohydrate diet and don't do any exercise.
We have launched a new resistance exercise program based on workouts you can do at home. Combined with our higher protein menu plans it can help you:
- lose weight
- lose more body fat
- reduce your waist circumference
- retain or increase muscle mass
Power combo for fat loss
During weight loss we lose body fat but around 20% of the weight we lose is muscle mass. By following a higher protein diet combined with resistance exercise you can maintain or even increase your muscle mass while losing weight.
Exercise can make you hungry and it is crucial that your diet is right, so you don’t feel like snacking all the time. Our higher protein menu plans help manage hunger and helps you control your appetite for longer.
The combination of a higher protein diet and resistance exercise results in greater weight loss, fat loss and reduction in waist circumference compared to a higher carb diet with exercise, or just diet alone.
Quick, easy home workouts
Our new Total Wellbeing Exercise Plan consists of a set of 4 exercises which is repeated 3-4 times. No gear is necessary but if you want a tougher challenge we recommend getting a set of resistance bands (available to purchase when you join).
At the beginner level you will do resistance exercise twice per week and a walking session on the other days of the week. As you become stronger and more confident you can advance to do more resistance exercise sessions each week.
The Total Wellbeing Exercise Plan helps you build up to the NHS Physical Activity Guidelines of at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity per week as well as resistance exercise twice per week.
Who is it for?
Resistance training is for everyone - both women and men, whether young or old. It's all about gaining body strength which is important at any age.
Women especially benefit from resistance training as women are more likely to lose muscle mass than men while losing weight. As we grow older we tend to lose muscle mass and doing regular resistance training can help reverse this natural development.
Resistance training in general helps you:
- manage blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol levels
- prevent and control heart disease and type 2 diabetes
- improve your posture, balance and mobility
- reduce the risk of falls or injury
- make everyday tasks easier to do
