There are thousands of weight loss programs on the market today. Do you know which is the best one? The best weight loss program is the one you can live with. If you can’t live with it, you will not be able to maintain the results.
Think about it. Why do most people regain the weight back after they lose it? They gain the weight back because they stopped taking whatever actions they took to lose weight.
So, the real question is why do most people stop taking the actions that got them in shape? I am sure it was not because they didn’t enjoy having a lean and healthy body and I am also sure it is not because they are lazy or don’t have their priorities straight like most fitness professionals believe.
Let me explain why I put most of the blame on the weight loss programs and not the people. As you might already know, humans are creatures of habit. According to cognitive neuroscience, 95% of your daily actions and thoughts are controlled by your subconscious mind. In other words, 95% of your daily actions and thought are habitual behaviors. Only around 5% of your daily actions and thoughts are controlled by your conscious mind. This makes perfect sense because our subconscious mind has almost, unlimited processing power, whereas our conscious mind is very limited. Getting our subconscious mind to run most of our daily tasks frees our conscious mind to focus on the important stuff, like enjoying life.
If you look at how healthy regions around the world are maintaining their good health and weight you will notice that all the healthy actions they take that contribute to their good health, are habitual actions. They don’t consciously think they need to eat more vegetables, or that they must take a walk or whatever else they do that keeps them in shape. All those things are habitual behaviors. Basically, through their traditions, they have trained their subconscious mind to take over all those actions, which frees up their conscious mind to enjoy life. In other words, their fitness program is on autopilot. Wouldn’t you love a weight loss program that is on autopilot? I know I would.
Now, if you look at how all of the popular weight loss and diet programs approach weight loss, you will notice that none of them help you develop habitual behaviors. As a matter of fact, many of the things they ask you to do in order to lose weight, you could not make habitual even if you wanted too, like counting calories, measuring your food or those over the top crazy workouts.
Basically, all the popular weight loss and diet programs rely on people’s willpower and motivation to stick with their fitness plan. In other words, they rely on the conscious mind for the implementation of their program. As I said before your conscious mind is very limited and can only focus on one thing at a time. So, if you have to plan your meals every day, that means you take the focus away from other fun stuff that are happening around you. If you are counting calories, you take the focus away from simply enjoy a nice meal. Basically, with the current methods of weight loss, you have to choose between having a lean and healthy body or enjoying life, but you can’t have both. Most people choose, enjoying life and I can’t say I blame them!
Another problem with the conscious mind, especially when you use it for something you don’t really enjoy (exercising, watching your diet, etc.), it takes a lot of effort to stay focused, and that constant mental effort leads to burnout.
Can you now see, why with most weight loss programs people end up regaining the weight back?
Since humans are creatures of habit and our conscious mind is already overwhelmed with things it needs to do, the obvious and best solution for sustainable weight loss is to make habitual all the actions necessary for weight loss and health. This way we will not need to rely on our conscious mind to take those actions that keep us in shape. Our new habitual behaviors will keep us in shape automatically, just like in the healthy regions around the world.
This is the way we approach weight loss at Live Your Way Thin and our clients have a very easy time keeping the weight off after they lose it, unlike the typical weight loss programs on the market today. However, this approach does have a drawback!
The drawback is that it might take some people few extra weeks before they start to lose weight. That is because when it comes to changing habitual behaviors, you can only work on changing one behavior at a time (trying to change more than one habit at a time will lead to burnout).
I have clients who started to lose weight as soon as they replaced one unhealthy habitual behavior and I have other clients who needed to replace 3 and 4 unhealthy habitual behaviors before they started to lose weight. Nobody can tell you for sure how many of your bad habits you will need to change before you start to lose weight, but, at the end of the day you will lose weight, it’s only a question of how many bad habits you need to change before you do so!
For those of you who want fast results, I have a question. What is the point of losing weight fast, if you end up regaining the weight back? Won’t you rather take a few extra weeks and lose the weight the sustainable way and never have to worry about your weight again?
The funny part is that this approach only seems slow, but in actuality, it’s the fastest way to lose weight because you only need to lose the weight once. I know people who have been losing the same 20 and 30 lbs., the fast way for years and they are still overweight.
One of the biggest benefits of losing weight by making permanent changes in your daily habitual behaviors, besides sustainable weight loss, is that you don’t have to choose between a lean and healthy body or enjoying life, you can have both!
I was raised on a Greek island in a very healthy region, where people lived long healthy lives free from most of the diseases people suffer from, these days and thin was the norm. The way we lived and ate in Greece, at the time I lived there, completely contradicted many of the popular advice that most fitness professionals give to people about weight loss and health. What made it even more interesting is that when I studied other healthy regions around the world, they had more in common with the way I was raised in Greece, than what I was taught in all my schooling.
My upbringing gave me a unique perspective that very few fitness professionals have. That unique perspective helped me identify 8 fundamental behaviors essential for weight loss and great health. Half of these healthy behaviors most diet and weight loss programs don’t teach. This is part of the reason why we are losing the weight loss battle.
Through our online coaching program and our personal training and coaching services at my facility in Danbury, we help people not just incorporate these 8 behaviors into their lives but make them habitual behaviors part of their daily routines.
The life-changing step by step process that we use to help our clients make habitual these 8 fundamental behaviors, is based on the Kaizen method. The Kaizen method, it's probably the best system for making lasting changes in your lifestyle habits.
It’s a simple yet extremely effective transformation technique that can help you make change inevitable. It has been used by major corporations, business leaders and highly successful people to achieve amazing and lasting results. I have incorporated the same philosophy into my weight loss approach and has made a huge difference in the results my clients have been getting with my approach.
The first behavior you will be learning has to do with becoming more active. Becoming more active is not just about exercising, although exercising is part of it. It's about adding more activities to your everyday life and make those activities habitual behaviors just like brushing your teeth or combing your hair. You will be surprised how much more activity you can add to your everyday life without taking any more time out of your day.
The remaining 7 behaviors you will be learning have to do with proper nutrition. This is another area where we differ greatly from other weight loss programs. You see, most programs only focus on the foods you eat or don't eat, but did you know that how you eat is as important to your health and weight as what you eat? This is something that none of the popular weight loss programs teach. Here is a proven fact: The same exact food and amount of food can affect your weight and health differently depending on, how you ate it, when you ate it and how you were feeling when you ate it.
Through our program, you will learn 4 specific behaviors that have to do with how you should be eating for best health and weight loss and 3 behaviors that have to do with what you should be eating more of and less of.
By the way, we don't believe people need to eat perfectly to lose weight and get in shape. We believe in the 80/20 rule. If you eat the right food the right way 80% of the time, your body will forgive you for the 20% of the time that you don't.
If you are looking for a permanent solution to your weight problem, you will love our approach to weight loss and great health!
