Losing weight is a lot like learning how to drive a car.
Certain behaviors need to be repeated in a particular order, and then they get put on auto-pilot in order to lose weight,
Everything you want in life requires some level of sacrifice to make it happen including weight loss.
When it comes to Losing weight knowledge can only get you so far
Knowledge is the key that starts the car. Our behaviors are what put the car in drive and steer the it in the right direction.
If all we do is start the car, we will go nowhere fast.
80/20 RULE WHEN LOSING WEIGHT
Losing weight requires the right skills, knowledge, and reflexes but that is only about 20% of it.
The other 80% comes from consistent behaviors repeated over a long period.
40% OF AMERICANS ARE CONSIDERED OVERWEIGHT
Most people know that they need to exercise more and eat less. Yet 40% Of The Adult Population In The United States Is Considered obese and those numbers are expected to continue climbing.
With access to more knowledge than we ever had in the history of being a human, why are these numbers climbing?
They are climbing because weight loss is not a knowledge issue. It’s a behavioral one.
The bottom line is that people have trouble changing their behavior.
From my experience working with hundreds of people they know what they need to do, they just have trouble consistently executing.
They have trouble executing because they have minimal knowledge or because they have too much information and get confused or overwhelmed about what to do with their unique situation.
Your rate and ability to make a change is 100% individual.
This is why having a coach to bounce ideas off of is crucial.
When it comes to weight loss we know, certain behaviors must happen to get the weight off as quickly as possible properly, and we know that specific actions must happen consistently to keep it off over the long term.
THE 4 BEHAVIORS
1. You need to strength train 2-4 times per week: All studies show that this is the best way to keep lean body mass when losing weight. This gives you the highest likely hood of losing weight from fat, not from your lean muscle.
2. You need to be in a caloric deficit: A caloric deficit means you burn more calories than you take in each day.
3. You need to eat the right amount of protein: Protein helps you teach your body to not eat its lean muscle tissue when you are in a caloric deficit.
4. You need to eat the right amount of fiber: Soluble fiber helps keep your gut bacteria healthy and promotes overall fat loss by reducing your appetite.
We know that doing those 4 things each day gives you the best chance to lose weight the right way in the safest and shortest amount of time possible without robbing from your long term health.
We also know that it’s easier said than done. If you feel like you struggle when it comes to knowing what to do or maybe you know what to do and are having trouble executing. You need a coach that helps you see the forest from the trees.
