What to Look for in an Online Weight Loss Nutrition Plan

Are you wanting to use an online nutrition plan to help you lose weight? Not quite sure where to start though? With countless ones available on the web, it can be tough to narrow down your search and select the right one for you and your goals. Here's a little help to make your search easier courtesy of our Calgary personal training and nutrition experts. 

When it comes to losing weight, the arithmetic is pretty straightforward. Burn more calories than you consume. But it's in the details where weight loss becomes much more challenging. Otherwise, everyone would be their ideal weight and there would never be a need for online weight loss nutrition plans.

Until that idealized day arrives, we have to use the tools available to us. And the internet is full of advice and tools when it comes to putting together a nutrition plan that will help you lose weight. You just need to know what to look for.

What to Look for in an Online Weight Loss Nutrition Plan

Chances are if you're trying to lose weight this isn't your first kick at the can. For a multitude of reasons — pregnancy, food addiction, emotional eating, genetics, medication, etc. — us humans tend to put on more weight than we'd like to. While this used to serve as a survival mechanism in our ancestors, and a show of wealth or prosperity a few thousand years later, most of us are now well aware of the health risks associated with obesity and being overweight. 

If you're looking to change your habits and finally see the number on the scale you've been striving for, an online weight loss nutrition plan may be what you need. Here's what you should be looking for in one.

Lifestyle change instead of crash diet

You want to find a nutrition plan that will work for the rest of your life, not just a few weeks. Crash diets can be extremely effective at helping you lose a lot of weight in a short amount of time, but they almost always end with you putting the pounds back on once you stop following the diet. When searching for an online weight loss nutrition plan, try to pick one that you'll be able to stick with well after you've realized your weight loss goal. 

Looking to participate in a weight loss challenge Calgary? Jensen Fitness organizes and hosts multiple weight loss challenges throughout the year. If you're looking for some added motivation and enjoy the spirit of competition while also receiving support from the other challenge participants, contact us today to find out more.

A balance between calorie restrictions and exercise

The best online weight loss nutrition plans blend calorie restrictions and increased activity levels to help you hit the weight loss sweet spot. You don't want to choose a plan that will focus too heavily on one or the other, otherwise you could end up dependent on either element for your weight loss results. Should you falter — say with your exercise levels — and your nutrition plan relies too heavily on intense workouts to achieve results, then you'll quickly find that your weight is going in the wrong direction.

The inverse of course can also be true. If your weight loss nutrition plan is extremely restrictive in terms of calorie consumption and doesn't feature very much physical activity, once you stop adhering strictly to the plan your weight may skyrocket. 

Try to find an online weight loss nutrition plan that features the best of both worlds. That way if you should have a misstep with one side of the equation, the whole plan won't be completely shot.

Last but not least, it has to be realistic

This is where you have to be completely honest with yourself. If you come across an online weight loss nutrition plan that features juice cleanses and foods you have absolutely no desire eating, chances are you won't be very successful at sticking to it. And if you come across a plan that sounds too good to be true — such as eating whatever you want without having to exercise all that often — chances are it probably is. 

Much like how you want to seek balance with calorie restrictions and activity levels, your nutrition plan has to be able to work for you and your life. If that means choosing a plan that takes a little longer to achieve your weight loss goals, but it's a plan you know you can adhere to, then so be it. Losing weight and then maintaining it is a lifelong endeavour, not an overnight fix.
