Need Advice - Is A Trainer A Must-Have For Weight-Loss?
However, what is interesting is the training didn't exactly cause me to lose weight, which was the goal. I found that weeks where I push myself at the gym (and get in the requisite cardio sessions on my own that my trainer assigns me as homework), that my weight doesn't change at all if I am not eating well. Yet, if I am eating according to my whole foods, zero processed, healthy eating plan, the scale will move, even if my work-outs have not been great.
This leads me to believe that food is 80% of the battle, and exercise is the icing on top. I'm curious what others think. Either way, my sessions are almost completed and my trainer of course wants me to continue. I'm thinking about the cost and weighing that against the fact that I don't think the training is actually getting me a ton of results on the scale. Any advice?
