1-You can’t overtrain a bad diet
Go ahead and bust your butt in that gym all you want but if you are still eating in an excess of calories then you aren’t going to lose the excess bulge.
2- Sample day at the stores might get you after all.
Nibbles can ruin your fat loss. Do me a favor and take the next week, just one week and write down every single thing you put in to your mouth. Not the calories, just the food. Then write down what you ‘think’ all that was calorie wise. Now I want you to look it up. Yeah I know, sucks.
If you want to have a cookie, have a cookie! Just count the damn thing.
3-’Magic Muscle Growth’ only counts if your body is actually changing.
Quick tip, if you really are putting on all that muscle that you are using to explain stalled scale weight, then your body would be changing as well. Muscle does hide scale weight, but it also shows a hot body. If you aren’t getting the hot body then re-check your efforts.
4-You will be hungry, tired, and angry.
I am one of the few trainers, in fact I don’t see this much of anywhere, that admits that this process should be hard. I don’t lie, it is the lying and the ‘happy diet’ approach that is getting people in so much trouble. This process sucks, I am honest about that. HOWEVER, you can do it and are awesome to even try. Remember love needs to follow tough.
5-You are not alone.
Right now I can easily give you a list of 50,000 thousand people, at the snap of my fingers, their contact info, who have cried this week because they are scared, frustrated, tired, hungry, happy, sad, proud, about to kill a loved one…all because of fat loss.
You are not in this alone. The education will guide you to getting this done faster, but the belief in yourself to do it is even more important. If you are finding you are failing yourself sometimes then do whatever it takes to find more support and take it home!
