Time Estimates to

weight loss target

To estimate how long it will take to achieve your weight-loss target the following aspects need to be considered:

Your age



Body type

Your daily non exercises activity

Your metabolic rate

Your daily calorie reduction

Science states that for the majority, 7700 calories is equal to 1kg of fat. It is advised that a safe recommendation of daily calories reduction is no more than 500 cals.  Any more than this can impact your health.

If your calories are reduced by 500 per day this equates to 3500 calories a week which is about half a kilo gramme of body fat. To accelerate weight loss even more it is obvious to increase your calorie expenditure with exercise.

What must be taken into consideration now is the ‘type of exercise’ in terms of maximising weight loss in the shortest possible time. It is thought that just expending calories is enough but this is not the case when trying to accelerate the process of body composition change. What is essential when attempting to reduce body fat is how the body burns fuel. To increase this metabolic activity the muscle density of the individual needs to increase through lifting weights in a particular way. The method used is called Time Under Tension which is proven to increase mass and density the fastest due to lactic acid caused by the time the muscles spend under tension which in turn promotes the largest natural release of growth hormone release by the body at rest.

Imagine that your body before starting training your body has a capacity and output (ability to burn calories) of a 1 litre car.

1 month later, following a specific weight lifting programme you have increased your ‘engine capacity’ as your muscles are now stronger and capable of doing more and producing more output.

3 months later this process has continued and you are now producing the equivalent of a 1.5 litre car so you’ll be burning more calories at work rest and play.

It is important to (explain scales and body comp change). Weoight loss is not a linea process.
