Two ways to lose weight quickly in Toowoomba

TOOWOOMBA personal trainer Ben Loxley said consistency and nutrition were the two keys to losing weight.

He said exercising in a consistent way by making it part of a daily workout could help people struggling to lose weight.

How to do it depends on the person but he said the slower approach was often best for people starting out.

Good nutrition is also important.

"I'm a big believer in balance. If you're eating whole foods that come from the ground 80% of the time you can't go wrong."

He admitted to eating fast food at times, but said it was all about moderation.

Walking is a great way to start off. "You can get out and do it whenever you have the time," he said.

"Walking with a friend is helpful. One of the great things is to find a buddy who keeps you accountable."

But that can only take you so far. He said going to the gym and finding something you enjoyed would take you to the next level.
