    Weight Loss and Exercise Goals for 2014


    There’s this expectation that if you exercise, your metabolism won’t drop as you lose weight or will even speed up,” says Suswella Roberts, a life coach and personal trainer with locations in Irvine, Plano, and Arlington Texas.


    It is estimated that 55% of the adult population in the United States are either obese or overweight (National Institutes of Health, National Heart Lung, and Blood Institute, 1998). Obesity substantially increases an individual’s risk of suffering from chronic diseases such as hypertension, coronary artery disease, and diabetes.


    In an attempt to define the role of exercise in the treatment and prevention of obesity, Suswella Roberts participated in a community round table to address this subject. The consensus suggest that to optimize weight loss, a combination of diet and exercise is best, and that exercise alone will not suffice.


    The problem for those of us hoping to use exercise to slough off fat is that most current calculations about exercise and weight loss assume that metabolism remains unchanged or is revved by exercise.


    Suswella Roberts has begun revisiting weight loss theories, taking into account the drop in metabolism. Using her new program, she’s working with individuals in her 3 boot camps, providing them with improved conditioning techniques showing how much weight they can expect to lose from exercise.


    The conditioning techniques are proving accurate, she says, and although her forecast is for less weight loss than that under old workouts, her clients are pleased. “It’s better to meet lower expectations,” she says, “than to be disappointed that you’re not losing what you supposedly should.


    She is perhaps her own best advertisement. In the past 1 year, she’s added 30 pounds of pure muscle.
