Have you ever tried to lose weight? Or do you feel like you’re always trying? It’s tempting to think that after a few weeks on a new method, you could tick it off as done. Has that ever worked?
I used to think I could exercise weight off my clients, and myself. I researched and tested all sorts of training methods designed to burn calories and lose weight: tabata, cardio, sprinting, weight training, metabolic conditioning…
The cold, bleak data showed the facts: negligible benefits in the long term. And I’m all about the long term.
So what does work?
I now know, with 100% certainty, that it’s all about what you eat. I learned the hard way – you can’t out-train a bad diet.
I decided from then on that for every single person I work with, I’d give nutrition the same relentless focus that I give to training.
That’s when I began to see real, consistent results.
So what works?
I’m not talking about a new type of diet. I’m talking about an entirely new approach to food, focused on long-term behavioural change. I show my clients how to build small, strategic habits that compound over time to produce impressive, sustainable results.
Don’t think that small means insignificant. Steady, strategic changes to habits, mastered over time, produce incredible payoffs. I’ve seen it time and time again. Integrating small habits into my clients’ current lifestyle works – it’s like slowly and methodically calibrating a machine.
What’s the killer habit?
The number 1 habit that causes long term change?
Chill out. Put your phone down. Enjoy every bite. If you’re with someone, put your cutlery down and chat.
Many meals are eaten on the fly, at the desk, or in front of a screen. It might sound simple, but you’d be amazed at the difference it makes to take the time to eat mindfully.
What this does is give your body time to register what you’re eating, and tell you when you’re full.
