5 Laws of Fat LossMar 14, 2023
No one wants to hear it, but not everyone is ready to improve.
If you are unwilling to start training with any consistency, not willing to change your nutrition, and are spending more time looking for some magic pill or solution, you're not really ready to improve.
You may want to look and feel like the "after picture," but you aren't ready to earn the improvement.
It doesn't mean that you're not a smart, wonderful person.
It doesn't mean that you won't eventually be ready.
It just means that improvement requires investment, and some people aren't ready to make that investment quite yet.
I see it periodically with people who join our fitness-and-nutrition programs and more often with people who inquire about them.
They want a better body and mindset.
They just aren't ready to do what it takes to earn the improvement.
They might pointlessly chase things that promise instant results... even though they'd never recommend a loved one pursue the magic pill.
They might try something for a day or two and quit... even though they know that they can't expect to lose 20 lbs of fat after two workouts.
Again, they can be wonderful people... but here's the reality:
If you want something uncommon, like a lean and healthy body, then you can't get there with ordinary work.
You have to be more consistent.
You have to have more persistence.
You have to be willing to be a little uncomfortable.
You have to be more focused.
But, from my 25+ years of coaching experience, it doesn't take much more than three hours per week of strategic exercise.
Doing the right things.
Employing the right systems.
Planning and focus.
Now, if you're not ready, I'm going to tell you that it's actually okay.
Not everyone is on the same clock.
But you do have to be honest with yourself and admit it, because, when it comes to your health, there's not much worse than unrealistic expectations.
They will frustrate you, day after day.
And if you are ready, outstanding!
There's not much that's more enjoyable than being ready and taking focused action that results in goals achieved
5 Laws of Fat Loss
Maintaining healthy bodyfat is important for your overall physical and mental well-being.
Being overweight can increase the risk of chronic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers.
It can also lead to fatigue, low self-esteem, and mental health issues like anxiety and depression.
Achieving a healthy weight through mindful nutrition and smart training can improve energy levels, boost immunity, and reduce the risk of many diseases.
Additionally, it can improve your quality of life, increase confidence, and promote a positive body image.
If you’re ready to reduce your bodyfat, then follow these five simple rules.
Fat Loss Law #1: Prioritize Water Versus Beer
If you want to remove unwanted fat, then you’ll need to drink water.
A lot of it.
Every time you feel the urge to drink something, make it water.
Not juice. Not milk. And definitely not beer.
Theses add sugars and calories to your daily intake, which will do nothing but make it harder to eliminate your fat stores.
Drinking water also helps you avoid eating when you’re not hungry, feel better, and doesn’t slow you down when it’s time to exercise.
"But I like to have a few beers on the weekends," says everyone who is struggling to get to a healthy bodyfat.
You see, beer makes you gain weight because it contains calories.
I know, I know, it's a shocking revelation.
But seriously, beer is basically liquid bread, and just like eating too much bread can pack on the pounds, so can drinking too much beer.
Plus, let's be honest, drinking beer often leads to eating things like pizza and wings, which definitely won't help your waistline.
Fat Loss Law #2: Protein, Please
Burning fat requires you to eat differently.
That means no more eating whatever you want whenever you want.
One of the best things you can eat to get rid of fat is protein.
Whether chicken, turkey, eggs, low-fat cottage cheese, beef, or whey protein powder, protein at every meal gives you energy you can use for whatever tasks come your way.
Fat Loss Law #3: Eat Less (Eureka!)
On the path to less fat, one rule you can’t ignore is to simply eat less food and avoid the calorific drinks.
That’s right, calories matter... just like they always do.
Think you can get away with eating all the healthy food you can find and still burn fat? Think again.
Your body only needs a certain amount of calories to function.
The rest sit around and have the potential to stick around for the long haul—even if they come from fresh fruits and vegetables.
So if your going to indulge on something, in may as well be ice cream.
Rule #4: Go to Bed
It seems no matter how many studies come out showing the direct connection between sleep and fat loss, most people still ignore their body’s signals to get more sleep.
Don’t be one of them.
Get to sleep at a decent hour that allows you to get about eight hours every night.
You’ll feel better in the morning, avoid midnight snack temptations, and burn more fat during your waking hours.
Rule #5: Relax Once
Once a week, for exactly one meal, allow yourself to enjoy whatever food you’ve been craving.
It could be a juicy hamburger with all the fixings, a slice of strawberry cheesecake, or a Cob salad with bacon, hard-boiled eggs, avocado, and blue cheese.
Just remember to keep it to a normal portion size, only do it for one meal each week, and return back to your healthy eating immediately.
If you are serious about getting leaner, stronger, and slowing aging today is the day to commit to getting in the best shape of your life.
Next, you'll get a customized training program, a paint-by-numbers nutrition blueprint, and a daily action plan to win the day.
I'll get on a coaching call with you every week.
And be there every step of the way, in between those calls, to answer questions, modify your program and keep you accountable.
That last part is the key.
Unless you're accountable to someone you respect and really don't want to let down you will always fail.
So I'll be checking in with you regularly and holding you accountable.
Imagine what you will look and feel like in 90 days.
Let's do this together.
To your success,
