For years I have been watching fitness professionals trying to figure out what is the best way to eat and what is the best way to exercise for healthy weight loss. The fact is, even if you figure out what is the best way to eat and the best way to exercise for healthy weight loss, it will not necessarily help achieve sustainable weight loss.
The reason is very simple. The solution to sustainable weight loss has two parts. Part one is having the right know-how as far as what foods we need to be eating, what foods we need to be avoiding, how we should be eating those foods and what exercises we should be doing in order to lose weight and get in shape.
The second part of the solution is knowing how to apply all that know-how into your life, without burning yourself out.
This is the part that most diets and weight loss programs are missing. They assume that once people see results they would be motivated to keep going. The fact is, the best results in the world would not keep anyone motivated if the results were achieved through a method that is overwhelming. The way most weight loss and diet programs approach weight loss is overwhelming for the vast majority of people, this is why 95% of people who do lose weight, end up regaining the weight back
The key to sustainable weight loss is knowing how to apply all the things you need to do, into your life, without burning yourself out.
