Here is a fact that might shock you. Losing weight and getting in shape is actually a much easier process than most fitness professionals make it. Their hard-core workouts and crazy diets that nobody can stick with for more than a few weeks have discouraged many people from even trying to lose weight and get in shape.
It does not have to be this way. The way most weight loss and diet programs approach weight loss, goes completely again human nature. This is one of the reasons why most people find diets and weight loss program so hard to stick with.
In my 25 years in the weight loss field I have found that when you try to lose weight and get in shape by going with human nature instead of again it, the process becomes much more tolerable and much easier to stick with.
Here is the process you should follow if you want sustainable weight loss and great health. I consider these 5 steps, absolutely essential for sustainable weight loss
STEP 1: You must identify the unhealthy habitual behaviors, that are responsible for your current shape.
STEP 2: You must identify, which of the 8 essential healthy behaviors, are NOT part of your life. (There are literally hundreds of healthy habits that could have a positive impact on your weight and health, some more than others. In my 25 years in the weight loss field, I have identified 8 healthy habits that would have the biggest impact on your health and weight and I consider them essential for best health and maximum weight loss. Those habits include, some form of resistance training to strengthen your muscles (you don’t need to kill your muscles only challenge them a little more than they are used to), some form of aerobics (you don’t need to run, walking does the trick), eating only when truly hungry, eating slowly and mindfully, learning to stop eating when you have satisfied your hunger, making junk food special, eating more fruits and vegetables.)
STEP 3: You must identify any negative beliefs that you have that could prevent you from eliminating any of your unhealthy habits or developing any of the healthy ones. (When it comes to sustainable weight loss, eliminating your negative beliefs is essential. Most weight loss programs don’t do this, and that is one of the main reasons why 95% of people who lose weight end up regaining the weight back)
STEP 4: You must have a clear plan of action that takes into consideration your current lifestyle, likes and dislikes, and of course your motivational level.
You plan must include:
- How you will eliminate any negative beliefs you have.
- How you will eliminate your unhealthy habitual behaviors while still living your life.
- How you will develop and make habitual the healthy behaviors you are missing and make them part of your life.
STEP 5: Take action. Nothing happens without action. However, you should never work on changing more than one habit at a time. Most weight loss and diet programs on the market today, try to help people change all their bad habits at once and we all know the end result, BURNOUT! Just keep in mind that you must stay flexible because things change, so your action plan must have some flexibility. This is where a good coach or personal trainer can be a big help.
These are the 5 steps we follow at Live Your Way Thin, and our clients, don’t just lose the weight they want with less effort but have a much easier time keeping it off, than with any other weight loss program.
