How can I supercharge my workouts?

I've been going to the gym consistently but I'm not seeing the results I want. I do machines and cardio when I go, and sometimes workout twice a day. Are there ways to enhance my workouts? (the goal is to lose weight)

In my experience, diet has a greater impact on weight loss than working out. And when you combine the two, it’s a force! You also may want to try working out with a personal trainer and/or taking a fitness class. You may learn some new techniques and the accountability can help you push yourself more. Good luck on your fitness journey!!

@CeciliaM37 Thank you for the advice! There's so many different eating practices so I do find it hard to figure out what will work best for my body (watching calories, cutting carbs, IF, more veggies etc). But will try to look into it and see about finding a trainer

@GoodbyeVal I think this resource may have some gems on how to trigger some changes - hope this helps!! How Much Exercise is Necessary for Health Benefits?

It sounds like you may be pushing yourself too hard in the gym and not nourishing/resting enough. When your body feels safe and taken care of it will be able to drop those extra pounds. If you haven’t been seeing results, it might be worth taking a month off of your normal routine and focusing on light workouts (walks, Pilates, yoga, and meditation) and eating a lighter Mediterranean diet, not so focused on protein and muscle building. See how you feel after!
