Hope you’re having a great day!
With this new group of 21 Day Holiday Challengers
getting started…I think it’s a good time to
get “back to basics”.
The fact is the basics always work and sometimes
I think because there’s SO much information
out here at any time. It’s easy to get distracted
by the latest and greatest.
When sticking with the basics will get you 80-90%
of the results you’re looking for most of the time.
Another thing that can slow you down and hurt you
is hanging onto idea that are wrong in the first
place or never were right to begin with.
Let’s start with the 3 Biggest Fat-Loss Mistakes
today and what you can do different.
Here are my 3 Biggest Fat-Loss Mistakes.
Mistake #1.Cardio is best for weight loss:
This nonsense needs to end. (I still hear it!)
Sure, I know you know someone that say’s they rode
the elliptical to drop 30 pounds.
When some one tells me they “did lot’s of cardio
and dropped 100 pounds. My question is “Did you
change anything in your diet?”
Their answer everytime is “Oh yeah-yeah that. Yeah
I completely changed my diet. Why do you ask?”.
Why do people who have had great success losing
weight give credit to the wrong factor?
Here’s the problem with Cardio for Fat Loss. It’s
the wrong tool for the job. It’s like trying to
pound a nail with a screwdriver-Wrong tool. Might
get the job done someday but there’s better tools
to do the job.
Women have a harder time with this than men. There’s
more brainwashing going on in women”s media especially
magazines. Magazines sell lifestyle and the intention
as one New York writer told me is “to sell more soap
and clothes” not provide accurate information.
If you have a deep desire to be soft and frustrated
stick with lot’s of cardio. Muscle tone and fat
loss doesn’t come from a treadmill, never has never
Do this instead- Lift weights, the heavier the
better, to get small and lean. Counter intuitive
but works every time.
Wean yourself off your cardio addiction with
interval training- I’ve got a blog post all about
it right here- How to do Interval Training
Mistake #2 I can out-exercise my diet.
Um no….. I wish it were like that..but it’s not
I have had 100?s of campers and clients. Mostly
campers for some reason-try this. Usually just
for the first month. When we do measurements at
4 weeks and there’s no change? That is evidence
of not getting the message-and that’s O.K. as long
as you understand and are O.K. with busting your
butt in the heat, rain, and cold and not get a
single visible result from it. Oh yes, you’re
working out but um…. don’t expect the scale to
move. You have to be O.K. with that if you want
to train and not get results.
You can not. And will not have one without the
Exerecise accelerates the fat-Loss, you look better
faster, tone comes back, and you feel great.
But…..and this is extremly important.
I’ve never-never-never had a client get visible
results without eating better.
Notice I didn’t say less.
If you’re eating whole foods, not processed junk,
you are virtually guaranteed success.
Did your week consist primarily of Lean Cuisine
(low cal!), goldfish(I wasn’t “eating”), Diet Coke
(It has “0? calories!) Starbucks (Convenience!),
eating out mindlessly(it’s just an entree and
breadsticks and wine and some of my friends entree
and some chips and hot sauce, and a beer, and
Or did you eat a majority of the time eggs,
oatmeal, chicken, sweet potatoes, green vegetables,
a bag of apples, lean meat, tune, water and tea?
If you’re in the second group you’re golden and
Don’t eat less eat different!
Do this instead- Make the decision to cut out
the junk(including diet sodas) for just one week.
One short week.
Eat only foods off my 100 Best Foods List-
(just for one week)-Weigh yourself at the beginning
of the week. Then again after 7 days on this list.
I guarantee the numbers will move. You’ll look feel
and perform better too. After just 7 days.
Mistake #3 I should be able to do it on my own.
Why would you believe that?(this is the on that
always stumps me)
Has anything significant ever been achieved by
a single person-on their own? Have you ever
achieved anything important (like changing ingrained
habits and your entire physiology over a period of
time) without any assistance or support what so ever?
Why do people feel bad they can’t lose weight
“on their own”.
Think about it.
When you’re a kid. You go to school with a group
of people and are in a class with a teacher at
the front(small group training). You go to college
surrounded by people striving for the same thing
you’re striving for(boot camp). You start your work
career again surrounded by people pulling towards
the same goals. Quite often your career is
accelerated by a mentor(one-on-one training)
that’s guided others like yourself to their
I can tell you from experience. One of the most
common responses to training is “I’d never do
this on my own’. And that’s cool, because you
were never meant to do it on your own.
You need guidance to speed up your results.
Support will get you through the inevitable lows.
Those same people will celebrate your successes
Don’t waste valuable time or energy feeling bad
about not being able to “do it on your own”. Get
around like minded people that want what you want
and accelerate your results.
