Have you tried this diet?
I’ll stop you right there.
Here’s the thing –
Every – single – diet – works, until it doesn’t.
People lose fat on low carb diets, low-fat diets, high-fat diets, paleo diets, keto diets, vegan diets, raw food diets, juice diets, Atkins diets, zone diets, banting diets, smoothie diets, diets that involve eating “clean” instead of “dirty” or not eating after a certain time at night.
The more extreme your approach to any of these, the quicker the results, and the quicker you just mess yourself up (body and most of all.. your mind and your relationship with food)
All of these diets and methods just indirectly cause you to create that caloric deficit.
Any diet that actually causes you to lose fat did so because it caused you to create a caloric deficit! Even if you didn’t realize it.
Perhaps your trainer that googled your program didn’t realize it either – The fact still remains. (Google trainers are becoming more and more common these days).
Calories in vs calories out via activity is ALWAYS the basis for fat loss, or gain. This is the foundation. There is more to it.. but you need to grasp the stuff that actually matters – the basics first.
These diets and methods I have just mentioned might never come right out and admit it or say you just need to eat fewer calories; partly because it doesn’t fit in with their gimmicks and partly because it’s hard to make money off of something that is simple, obvious and free.
But every successful fat loss diet makes you eat fewer calories in one way or another.
Want to lose weight and keep it off for good?
Be flexible with your nutrition and follow these 3 steps:
1. Create a calorie deficit.
2. Create a calorie deficit.
3. Create a calorie deficit.
Stop wasting your time and money on dead-end diets and thinking that just because it has a brand behind it and it’s packaged in some new way, that it must work.
Putting information on the internet is FREE and easy. I don’t want you to think that just because it’s there or because the shops stock it that it must work… This is the age of information – educate yourself, and don’t just follow the masses or the marketing geniuses (or Sally from the golf club).
You have the answer – create an energy deficit. Activity up, eat what you like but make sure the energy balance is in favor of calories coming in being less than the calories out via activity.
After that, you should concentrate on the quality of the food.
Bottom line – Burn more than you eat.
After this, you should concentrate on the quality of the food. You know, look after your health. But you need to first realize just how high in Calories the things that you think are healthier option s actually are.
Think about my next sentence for a second:
“The quantity of the calories you consume will have more negative long term health implications than the quality of those calories”.
Yes, coco pops are not the most nutritious meal, and no I am not recommending them to you, but did you know that 2 full bowls of coco pops and full cream milk have fewer calories than a slice of wholegrain toast with avocado and sunflower seeds.
I am not saying you should eat coco pops or cereal instead of avo on toast, however, I am telling you that you are going to have to realize that obesity kills more people than coco pops and chocolate ever has.
Even if you “EAT HEALTHILY “, the very healthy meals you think are best are actually calorie bombs causing your weight gain, obesity and in turn diabetes. Don’t demonize a food when the very “health foods” that are being marketed and marked up in price (funny that), are not FREE foods to over-consume.
It’s simple if you have the correct help when it comes to your educational foundation. You still need energy ( calories ), for your normal bodily process’ to take place.
You cant under-eat and overtrain .. that’s asking for failure. And under-eating is boring -life sucks without nice food.
You will need a helping hand and if its the right kind of help it should set you up for life so that you can carry on successfully on your own!
