You may not like this – because this sportsman has one controversial opinion…

That’s been getting some press again recently after the debate about whether kids should keep score and league tables in sport…

^^^ something I was chatting to a member on my Fat Loss Mastery Body Transformation Programme about last week about

Anyway, here’s what this American footballer, James Harrison, said:

“I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies! 
While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy.
I’m sorry I’m not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned 
and I’m not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best…because sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better…not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut u up and keep you happy”

I have to admit…

I do agree. 

I’m passionate about family life and seeing everyone around you be happy

^^^ hence why I’m always talking about NOT letting crazy diets stop you eating your favourite foods and enjoying meals out with friends and family (as I once did)

But sometimes, I wonder if trophies like this are priming us to miss the value of DOING THE WORK.

Don’t you think?

It reminds me of all these crash diets

We start the diet super motivated thinking that it’s gonna be all glitter and that when we drop a few pounds doing whatever it takes that we’ll be happy

Only to then get a harsh dose of reality when no one is there to support you and adapt your diet so you can get Transformation results once and for all.

Because just like James Harrison says…

‘trying your best’ on a cookie-cutter diet that leaves you craving all your favourite foods and burning out the motor on your Nutri Bullet…is often NOT good enough to get you the results you want

and blaming yourself does nothing!

Sometimes….You just have to get better and the best way to get better at losing weight and keeping it off?


Because, whether you like it or not…Losing FAT, keeping it off…and fitting back into your favourite clothes..

Lives and dies on whether you can STICK to the ‘diet’ long-term

^^^ Meaning it has to fit your lifestyle!

And it just so happens that I teach you exactly how to do this in my simple (but not easy) Fat Loss Mastery Body Transformation programme
