He kind of did his job there though....the average healthy weight-loss rate is approximately 1-2 lbs per week ish? Weight-loss as rapid as you wanted could really screw you up.
To OP: I'm 100% sure that, no matter how unrealistic your goals were, the personal trainer or instructor or whomever was "assisting" you was being a 100% dick. He should help you formulate a plan of action rather than effectively telling you to fuck off, if only because that's kinda why they hire those people in the first place. The reality is that, for most people, it doesn't matter how much you exercise if you eat like shit. If you have healthy eating patterns, you will naturally shed weight, though exercise moves it along more efficiently. High-intensity interval training and the like helps burn calories in a short amount of time, and can assist if you are particularly busy. Set goals for yourself, and don't kick yourself if everything doesn't work perfectly the way you planned it!
Weight loss doesn't come over night. It will take time, and it's impossible to predict how fast or slow it will be for you to get fit or lose 35lbs. I suggest you put your ego aside and get to work, that is the only way to sure success. Good luck.
Unless you are over 100 pounds overweight, that isn't going to happen and is probably dangerous. Agreed he probably should have explained, but you're probably the 1000th person to set an unrealistic goal.
Really that trainer should quit if he's gonna start snapping on people. Weight loss is a complicated thing that not even experts can 100% understand - because it varies from person to person - so a trainer should be prepared for clients to be uninformed for the most part. Hell I work in a cookie store and grown adults go "Uhm. The pink one? the sprinkles?" when it says "sugar cookie" right in front of it. Never expect your customers to know ANYTHING. Lol.
16 kg in two months, while certainly possible, is really unhealthy weight loss and you'd be losing a lot of muscle mass as well as body fat. you've got to remember that muscles weigh more than fat so having a slower weight loss while still maintaining muscle mass or even slowly building muscle mass is much better. 15 years of bodybuilding experience have taught and shown me this repeatedly, good luck! :)
that person is a major dick, but they're not wrong. anything more than 2 pounds a week of weight loss is unhealthy and could even kill you. You should still report them to the gym staff though. They don't need to be doing personal training if they're gonna act like that.
