It’s different for every person, but generally you can start to develop healthier habits within the first 10 days. Long term weight loss however will take a minimum of six to twelve months.
Why does it take so long?
Healthy weight loss is something that shouldn’t feel like work or deprivation. That’s why we aim for a slow weight loss curve that can be maintained. If you lose weight faster due to restriction you are more than likely going to gain back the weight you lost and some more. This can become a dangerous cycle that we do not encourage or endorse.
Developing healthier habits and knowing more about nutrition and exercise will stay with you long term and our approach builds up layers of knowledge over time that allows you to reach your goals and maintain them. Whilst there will be up and downs in the road the journey is going to be a long one, and realistically health is a life long goal which never ends. The good news is we are here when you need us and we are more than happy for you to dip in and out.
Everyone is different though, with differing levels of commitment and motivation. It’s essential to not be too hard on yourself and respect your own pace of learning. If it takes longer than you expected, that’s fine. In fact, the very worst thing you could do is have unrealistically high expectations and a particular timeline in mind for results.
