Here is a short video (5 mins) just briefly explaining some thoughts on rates of weight loss related to different circumstances. I heard it on the radio recently that a doctor had stated 1-2 pounds per and no more was what everyone should aim for.
I put up a separate video addressing this when you consider someone who is obese and why a greater rate may be needed in relation to health issues. This time it’s an example where the rate DOES fit the bill, and another where no rate is set.
It’s all about dealing with each scenario in the best possible way for the client. I hope this provides some food for thought and that you might think to question things you hear on the radio or TV in future (it may well be correct information, but make sure you question things).
