I was driving back from seeing family the other week. We hit some roadworks. The 50 signs were up…but we were barely moving. GREAT! Then the dog wakes up in the back and starts crying. Wakes up our daughter…who then starts to cry….Don’t you just love traffic?
So I’m sat there and notice a lorry drive past me in the lane next to me. And I remembered passing this lorry about 30 minutes ago…which made my mind focus even more on how slow this traffic was (crying dog and baby didn’t help either…).
You see, this is just like this fat loss and toning up game. No matter how fast and intense you go (you know, 10lbs in 4 days detox where you lose a bunch of water and eat nothing?), you’re always going to hit ROADWORKS that SLOW DOWN your fat loss. And it’s how your respond to this that counts…
So, wouldn’t it be more simple for you if you developed a nutritional strategy that suited your lifestyle? That you could adapt to suit your social life / work / family?
One that you could tweak (rather than throwing it all into the ground and starting again) when you hit those roadblocks?
And this brings me on to something I was told by a member on my body transformation programmes last week:
Because most diets WILL work if you define ‘works’ as weight loss. But here’s where what we do in my Fat Loss Mastery Body Transformation Programme is a little bit different. You see, we define what ‘works’ as losing FAT and keeping it off
^^^ Which essentially means ‘toning up’
How do we do this?
By mastering these 3 basics during your periods of fat loss:
1) Challenging your beliefs about why you define foods as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ and how this impacts your beliefs that you have ‘failed’ on a diet and end up giving up…starting again on Monday
2) Introducing you to muscle strengthening exercises which make everyday tasks like climbing stairs easier, help to tone you up and keep your metabolism higher in the long term so you can keep the weight off once and for all
3) Ensuring you have the bricks to build your house (AKA tone up) by making sure you are eating enough of the essential nutrients to lose fat and tone up
And there’s also one key concept which governs all of this:
“Does it fit your lifestyle? Can you – after questioning your beliefs about whether ‘good’ or ‘bad’ foods exist or whether you think you can or can’t do something – see yourself eating like this in 3 months, 6 months, a year, 2 years? If not, are you setting yourself up for failure?
^^^ That said, some members on my Fat Loss Mastery Body Transformation do go in hard and lose fat FAST. And this is OK…as long as you have an EXIT strategy AKA ‘what do I do after the diet?’ (which I’ll come on to another day).
