The Only Diet That Works…

I thought about titling this article – What’s a Diet? But then I figured that, the title doesn’t really insinuate that I’m giving you what you want – The answer of course…

However before I can tell you what I think is the only way to go about this, first we must breakdown what doesn’t work.

An important question to ask is…

If a particular ‘diet’ results in someone losing weight but then putting it back on, was it ever a ‘good diet’?

Weight Loss – The Undeniable Truth

Here is a harsh truth that you might not want to hear but you probably need to hear…

You are the reason that you haven’t achieved your weight loss goals yet!

It’s not…

  • Genetics
  • Starvation Mode
  • Cortisol/Stress
  • Etc

It’s the fact that you have failed the method to which you have applied. You have failed the system. I must say before I go on that, you failing a system is you being a failure as such, it is highly likely that a different method or system will be more applicable to your lifestyle.

But, there has to come a point where you stop burning through different ways of dieting or exercise. There has to come a point where you recognise that maybe the dieting methods and systems aren’t the problem.

The problem is actually your belief systems and habits around dieting. For you to get something from this blog you must open your mind up and be vulnerable to being wrong about how you perceive weight loss.

You have to remember that if your beliefs and habits around weight loss were rational then you will have already achieved your goal. This can be tough for some to admit and understand, but I promise you once you challenge your beliefs around what’s required, in order to achieve your goals, that’s when the magic happens!

Why Does Weight Loss Slow Down?

It all starts so well doesn’t it?

10lbs down in the first 8 weeks then for some reason, it slows down or in some cases, stops.

Yet you are doing exactly the same thing as when you first started.

Which leaves you scratching your head trying to understand why.

I am going to try and explain why this is and what you can do about it to continue to get results.

7 Things you MUST know in order to LOSE WEIGHT

1. The calorie deficit should be your number one priority

The undeniable truth is that energy balance dictates whether or not you will lose weight or not. If you are not in-taking less calories than what you burn, you will not lose weight. There are literally no outliers. Before you say it, yes it is harder for some people, yes people with thyroid issues or P.C.O.S find it more difficult but the energy balance equation remains the most important thing to conquer.

Basically, you must ingest fewer calories than the amount you expend for weight loss.

Weight Loss – Is now the right time?

Before you continue to read this blog, please be aware that I am not saying you have to act on this, I am not saying you should be losing weight right now or any time for that matter. I know that everyone is in a different head-space and I fully understand and respect that, I have clients that are focusing on health right now. However, if you feel that you want to, this might be the best possible time to achieve some incredible results.

As I mentioned a lot of my clients initially wanted to pause their weight loss aspirations because their world had been turned upside down and that was absolutely understandable and so we adapted their goals.

As this situation has become the new normal my clients started to settle down, get into a new routine and push on again for their weight loss goals and this rings true because I’ve also taken on a bunch of new clients who want the same too.

The key to unlocking long-term results is habit change – EVERY SINGLE TIME –

Something I like to say to my clients is…

“Only with action can you change the habits of a lifetime”

LOSE WEIGHT WITH HOME WORKOUTS

I’ve covered weight loss a few times now but I want to give you some insight into how you can still achieve this during the lock-down. Before I go on, I want you to know that it is ok to still work toward weight loss, it is ok to work toward maintaining weight and it is even ok if you gain weight. This is a tough time for us and therefore there are some people that will find it more difficult than others to adapt.

For those that do still seek weight loss however I want you to know it is absolutely possible and in this blog I will discuss how I believe this to be the case. The important thing to remember is that we have to manage all three of the main principles in order to lose weight. Number one is nutrition/calories, number two is overall movement/NEAT and number three is exercise. In this blog I want to specifically address the exercise principle behind weight loss.

Weight Loss – The Worst Kept Secrets

I hear it all the time…

“ I wish I could have a body like ‘Insert Name Here’. “

Now, I am talking here about comparisons to ‘normal’ people, people in the gym that others look at and say the above comment. They say it though with no real understanding or appreciation for what that person has done to look that way. Let’s forget genetics and age etc for a second. Here I want to share with you the characteristics and the things that these people do to look the way they do, to have people say things like the comment above about them.

Wanna know how they do it?

DIET

So let’s start with the ‘diet’, now I have put this in inverted commas because the first question people ask is “Which diet are you on?” Maybe you are thinking you should try intermittent fasting or the ketogenic diet, or maybe Slimming World is for you. You might even have considered the Skinny Coffee’s of the world of Boom Bod because after all you want a quick fix and that’s what they SELL you on. The truth is, you don’t need to do any of these. What you need to do is the thing that all of these ‘diets’ have as the main principle, the reason why they work – THE CALORIE DEFICIT.
