How often should you REVIEW?
By: Team lumiNutri
To keep you on track towards your goals, a good strategy is to get into the routine of taking time to review your results regularly. Generally, we recommend this every 2 weeks to make sure you’re on the right path when in comes to both achieving and then maintaining your results.
An important part of reviewing is to commit to doing so EVERY 2 weeks. Too often, people only review when they think it’s going to be good. We’d encourage you to accept that there will be times you don’t see the results you either want or think you deserve.
To help review you will need access to the lumiNutri app. If you haven’t downloaded this already, please do so now (links at bottom of this page) and sign up to a membership, it will only take a couple of minutes and it’s 100% FREE.
Now, within your app you can follow our step-by-step guide…
STEP 1: Take all body stats measurements available to you and record them in your app. The bare minimum would be to record your weight and waist measurement. You can also take progress photos too but don’t expect dramatic visual results in 2 weeks.
STEP 2: Compare your results with those you took 2 weeks prior. If you're trying to lose weight, have you? If yes, by how much? If you’re trying to gain weight, have you? Again, if yes, by how much?
STEP 3: Now you have these answers you can then look into your app for reasons why. The key areas to be looking at would be your weekly: nutrition, exercise, water, sleep and score reports.
STEP 4: At this stage, if you are seeing progress towards your goals there won’t be much reason to change much, if anything. If not, we’d recommend you come up with up to 3 focus points that you will commit to for the next 2 weeks.
By selecting 2-3 key points to focus on for the next week 2 weeks we are looking to kick start results (or continue them). It's a really simple process that is easy to do, takes little time and almost guarantees you will get results with consistency over time.
Let’s take you through an example scenario of what areas I would look at within the app to help you create some focus points of your own:
If you look at your weekly reports and you’re not seeing the results you want, the areas outlined above can give you an indication on what areas to pay particular attention to and focus on for a few weeks.
By making a few relatively small changes and then monitoring again in 2 weeks, it’s much more sustainable than making wholesale changes to your nutrition or training programmes every week.
The key final point to make here is a reminder to be patient and resilient. As with most things, progress isn’t linear and it’s natural to have ups and downs. Play the long game, stay consistent and keep going because giving up gets you nowhere.
