5 health and fitness truths you need to accept

When it comes to achieving, there are some hard truths that you must come to terms with. These truths aren't meant to dishearten or discourage you but rather to help you set realistic expectations and approach your goals with the right mindset. In this blog post, we'll explore these hard truths and offer guidance on how to navigate them.

Results take time

  • The results you desire may not manifest in weeks or even months to years 
  • While quick progress is possible, especially as a beginner, sustainable and realistic changes often require a considerable amount of time
  • This is especially true if your goal is to build muscle or change your body composition 
  • Instead of fixating on the end result, focus on the behaviours and habits that will get you there
  • Consistency is key, and results will come in time! 


You may need to build before cutting 

  • Achieving your desired results likely won't come solely from dieting
  • To make real changes to your physique, you'll need to spend an extended period of time at maintenance or in a calorie surplus and training hard in order to grow muscle 

You can’t build muscle and lose fat at the same time 

  • Building muscle and losing fat simultaneously is challenging
  • Unless you're a novice lifter, detrained, or overweight, it's hard to gain muscle while losing fat
  • This is because fat loss requires a calorie deficit, while muscle gain requires a surplus or at least maintenance calories
  • Experienced lifters will benefit more from alternating between dedicated fat loss and muscle building phases

You won’t be motivated all the time 

  • Motivation is inconsistent, so relying on it to keep you on track with your health and fitness goals can be unreliable
  • Create a routine you genuinely enjoy and implement sustainable healthy habits
  • Building discipline and habits will ensure you continue working toward your goals, even during times when motivation is low

You'll need to make sacrifices

  • While it’s important that your process is sustainable and balanced, achieving your goals will always require some level of sacrifice 
  • Whether it's sacrificing sleep ins for training or saying no to a second serve of cake, there will be times you need to flex your willpower or get out of your comfort zone 
  • If you're unwilling to make sacrifices, it's worth reflecting on whether your current goals align with your values at this stage in your life 

Understanding and embracing these hard truths about health and fitness is crucial for setting realistic expectations and achieving your goals. With patience, dedication, and a balanced perspective, you can work toward your aspirations without being disheartened by the challenges you may encounter along the way.
