How long does it take to see results from healthy eating and exercise?

The answer depends on a lot of factors at play here. Most people are after the instant gratification method – which can and will lead to disappointment in the long run.

Let’s get one thing very clear here – results become apparent depending your efforts, diet and also your generics. Some people may see results within a few weeks, others may take months. In my case, I always need to leave a 3–6-month period open for changes to take place. My body just doesn’t want to show me progress before this time. It’s unfortunate, but that’s just the way it is.

What is even more disappointing is that some people stop making the effort just when the results would have begun to appear. Don’t make that mistake.

On the other hand, if you aren’t seeing a result within the 3-month period, perhaps it’s best to asses – or get a professional to look at your diet and exercise regime, offering some solutions. When we ask for a professional’s help, we fast track our way towards success, rather than going around in circles.

Here are some good solutions for you to try, when you are finding a plateau is becoming apparent – or you want to shake up your training a bit. Variety can be just what you need to push you towards more of a result driven outcome.

4 ways to kick start your physique changes when in plateau mode

  1. Try intermittent fasting a few times a week, then transition to every day.
    This is perhaps my most preferred method of lifestyle eating. It’s restricting the timeframe you eat and fast, to decrease your insulin, trigger human growth hormone which leads to fat loss and muscle gain. It’s by far the best way to lose weight fast – and cause a shift in your metabolism. Try it out.
  2. Use HIIT for stubborn fat. This is your best cardio workout for fat loss, especially body fat. Perform this about 2–3 times per week for 20 minutes at a time. it’s intense, and will leave you breathless, but totally worth it!
  3. Eat more protein sources. Protein is your very best friend when it comes to fat loss. It’s a thermogenic, therefore, burns calories in order to be digested. It also promotes satiety, leaving you feeling full for longer periods, increasing a steady flow of energy throughout the day, and eliminating cravings.
  4. Rest days 2 times per week is a good idea. Too many people exercise daily, and wonder why they are so tired, worn out and not getting any results. You can overwork your body, leaving it susceptible to injury and plateauing your fat loss results. Opt to allocate 2–3 rest days per week, but still be active on those days by walking or doing some yoga. It’s in the rest phases that the body rejuvenates from the exercise.

I do hope this has helped you think of some different alternatives, that can help you kick start your weight loss efforts. Please don’t fret about the progress, it can take some time.
