One of the top reasons Chicago personal training clients have a hard time losing weight is because of inflammation. While the wrong exercises can lead to injury and inflammation, your diet tends to be the top culprit. Your common grocery list foods-dairy, meat, alcohol, processed items, refined sugar, and grains-can be your biggest adversary when trying to lose weight. Each have shown inflammatory properties in many studies and will cause your body to slow its metabolism and possibly experience uncomfortable physical symptoms, such as indigestion.
My suggestion while you meet with your Chicago personal trainer? Check out Dr. Weil's Anti-imflammatory Diet and Pyramid. It will guide your food choices and limit any obstructions to your ability to lose weight.
