3 Additional Gifts Of Fat Loss

When you put in the focused effort to lose weight there are certain benefits that you expect to get. You expect to look better in your clothes. You expect to have more energy, and you expect to feel pretty happy about your accomplishment.

Knowing that these benefits are waiting for you just on the other side of weight loss is often a strong enough motivator for you to put in the work required. However, I’ve found that sometimes you need even more compelling reasons to dig in and get it done. My experience with helping my clients achieve their fat loss goals has really opened my eyes to exactly what bonus gifts they gain when they make those lifestyle changes and drop the fat weight.

My hope is that by reading the 3 Additional Gifts of Fat Loss below, you’ll feel the driving motivation that you need to jump into personal wellness with both feet and that you’ll find out just how amazing and capable you’ve been to achieve your goal all along.

Fat Loss Gift #1: Confidence

You may not consider it a concrete benefit, but that doesn’t stop confidence from being one of the most important perks of dropping fat. When you have increased confidence, you change how you view yourself and go about your daily routine. The world is at your fingertips and you can take on whatever it throws your way.

Additionally, when your confidence increases after losing a few pounds, you’re motivated to keep losing. So, the confidence you gain gives you what you need to lose more weight and feel even more confident.

Fat Loss Gift #2: Better Health Today And Later

Go to the doctor with some sort of health condition and unless it’s the common cold or flu, losing a few pounds can almost always help you manage the condition better. From diabetes to heart disease to joint pain, trimming the fat from your body puts you a step closer to your health goals. Cutting fat makes it easier to get around on your joints, reduces your blood pressure and helps you sleep better.

As additional perks, less fat today means better sleep and better energy. Since both improve your quality of life, taking the time necessary to shave off fat will give you the best life you could experience!

Today isn’t the only time your health will improve if you lose some fat. Shed some pounds and you will reap the rewards for years to come. Instead of having to manage a variety of health conditions, you will be able to keep those conditions at bay.

A few health issues that will benefit by cutting fat are diabetes, heart disease, joint pain, a variety of cancers, high blood pressure and dementia. In other words, get rid of the fat today and you can avoid all the health issues in the future that requires fat loss for maximum management.

Fat Loss Gift #3: Everything Tastes Better

As you settle into your new fat-burning lifestyle that includes eating healthily and working out regularly, you will notice something because you no longer overeat at the buffet or go for a second or third helping, you will begin enjoying every bite that you take. As the bite sits in your mouth, you won’t swallow it before tasting or chewing. You will take your time and really savour the flavour, and when you do start chewing your food and enjoying the flavours, your brain will have time to register when you’re full and cut you off before you stuff yourself with more calories than you can burn. Do this regularly and you’ll lose even more fat!

I’ve dedicated my career to helping people, just like you, conquer their fear of exercise and clear up their confusion with healthy eating. I know that a healthy life is within your reach and I’ve seen hundreds of my clients before you do it, and I’ll see hundreds after you do it.

It is a lot easier than any diet, bootcamp, binge exercise or personal training you have done before. Guaranteed, or your money back…

Always here 


Are You Hungry?

When you find yourself reaching for a chocolate bar… WAIT! Are you really hungry? Or are you simply eating out of habit? Next time you find yourself gravitating toward a junk food fix do a short burst of physical activity instead. A dozen jumping jacks, 15 crunches, a walk around the block… you get the idea! By the time your heart rate returns to normal you will find that your craving has gone and not only did you save yourself from empty calories, you burned extra calories as well!


Low Carb Spaghetti and Meatballs

Remove the high-carb noodles and now learn to love nature’s healthy noodles: spaghetti squash. If you haven’t yet tried spaghetti squash, then you’re in for a real treat. A pile of tender spaghetti squash strands piled high with protein and veggie meatballs makes the perfect healty meal.

What you need serves 12

2 pounds lean, organic, grass-fed earth beef
1 pound lean, sweet turkey sausage
4 celery stalks, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
3 carrots, diced
3 omega-3, eggs
1/2 cup almond meal
2 tablespoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Dash of salt and pepper
Optional: handful of olives

For the sauce:

14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
Splash of white wine
2 cups fresh basil, chopped
6 garlic cloves, chopped
Dash of salt and pepper

For the noodles:

1 spaghetti squash

instructions

1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Wash spaghetti squash and poke all over with a knife. Place directly on the middle oven rack and bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Once cooled, slice in half and remove the seeds. Scoop the spaghetti squash strands out with a large spoon, set aside in a bowl.

2. Throw all the meatball ingredients into a large bowl and mix with your hands. Form into large, golf ball sized meatballs.

3. Combine all the sauce ingredients into a medium bowl and mix well.

4. Cook with crockpot: place the meatballs in your slow cooker. Cover with the sauce and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Or cook with hob: place meatballs in a large pot. Cover with sauce and cook, covered, over low heat for 2-3 hours.

5. Place a scoop of spaghetti squash noodles on each plate, top with meatballs and some sauce and then throw on a few olives.

Denise-7.jpgAfter years of going to the gym and watching what I ate my weight continued to fluctuate. Then I discovered Performance NI. I joined thinking I’ll give it a go, perhaps I will pick up some new ideas, little did I know the new journey I was about to embark on! Under Gerry’s careful guidance I discovered where my diet was going wrong. I can only describe the next 4 weeks as exciting as I learnt more about healthy food options and food that I never realise existed yet provided the same delicious taste! My food cupboard was reinvented as each week I tried the new menus provided to me. The package not only gave constant review of my recorded daily food diary (providing suggestions along the away to improve), it provided me with a personalised work out which again was monitored and tweaked when necessary. The support and feedback is there 24/7 should you need it. The customer service is second to none and you won’t be disappointed with the value for money. After only 4 weeks, I go forward now re energised and re-educated with 4lb of body weight off and almost 3 inches from my waist. It’s a life plan not a quick fix that Gerry guides you through. I couldn’t recommend Gerry and his professional holistic approach highly enough!


​​​​​Lisheen1-2.jpgMy primary goal in undertaking Gerry’s programme was to increase my energy levels so that I didn’t feel tired all the time.  In consultation with Gerry, I soon realised that my diet was lacking in real nutritional value and I was consuming a lot of hidden sugars.  After 1 month, I felt a significant increase in my energy levels and was eating and enjoying a varied diet of “clean” foods. I was also enjoying healthy energising snacks that I had cooked using recipes Gerry had suggested.  Simplicity was the key however, there was nothing complicated, which was just as well, I have very limited culinary skills! Meanwhile, I continued my usual exercise regime with Gerry’s guidance and for the first time in many years, I felt energised and was losing “fat” weight, 15lbs of fat to be exact, which I never thought possible particularly at my stage in life!  Women of a certain age will understand what I mean :). My once monthly visits to Gerry over the past 4 months has taught me so much about nutrition and activity and I have made simple lifestyle changes on his advice that have transformed by personal wellness and fitness levels.  I would recommend Gerry to anyone.  I couldn’t have achieved the goals I have to date without his guidance and support.  Thank you Gerry.

I have been attending the gym for a few years with body pump and spin classes mixed in, almost 6 days per week. Its was in one of Gerry’s classes I noticed a friend was looking great and really shaping up. Like me he trained a lot and had a similar routine, so I was keen to find out what he was doing. He recommended Gerry and said he and his wife go regularly. So, I booked a free assessment with him and was amazed how much detail and information he gave me, and it was a lot cheaper than weekly personal training sessions. I only went once per month and followed exactly what he proscribed and again I was shocked how much the subtle change to my exercise and diet made to my shape. Now I’m the one being asked about my sudden transformation and just like my friend, I recommend Gerry. Sara Cartwrigh

My experience with the Performance NI personal wellness plan has been enlightening to say the least. I was shocked at the results that subtle changes had made to my body and outlook. The scientific approach was hard for me to get my head around at first but I quickly understood after seeing the changes. Each process was explained to me in great detail all the way through the programme. This gave me comfort and confidence in Gerry’s ability to direct me towards my personal goals. I have increased my hydration, decreased my body fat by ten pounds and increased my lean weight by seven pounds. I’m not eating different foods, just changed how and when I eat my food groups. I would recommend Gerry to anyone who is starting off or like myself has been training for years and wanting to find direction. Maeve McKay

John and I have always tried to be fit and eat healthily but as we are approaching our seventies the bodies were changing shape for the worse. Despite walking, golfing and gym membership we needed advice and direction from a professional to assess our strengths and weaknesses to help us change shape and become more energetic and gain a level of fitness that we did not have. We went to Gerry and he assessed both of us-a thorough assessment of our body composition, metabolism and overall lifestyle. I have spent a life time watching what I eat-it was amazing to learn that I should have been eating a lot more. Each month he gave us new habits to build with small diet and exercise changes. We have learnt a lot from attending our sessions with Gerry and noticed a great change in our energy levels and body shape. We also incorporate weights to give us more body strength- in my case upper body strength and in John’s case posture and assistance with golf swing and driving distance. We see Gerry each month and value his support and guidance and it’s never too late or too early to book a session and see for yourself. John & Christina

I have been training with Performance NI since August 2015, medical issues in my life made me look at things differently and my doctor advised me to change. So with the help and knowledge of Performance NI I did just that. As with most first meetings I was nervous but was soon put at ease in the relaxing surroundings of Performance NI’s private gym. I was assessed and a plan put together that suited me and a target that we set to get me from just over 18 stone to 14 stone. Gerry has gotten me to within 1 stone off my target in 6 months (February 2016). I have enjoyed all aspects of the training and looking forward to being healthier and fitter.
