The ABC’s of Fat Loss

Hi everyone! Today’s post is going to be a little shorter than usual because I’m getting ready for this Saturday’s 5 Things You Should Know About Weight Loss, But Don’t workshop.

Since the workshop is going to be about things that are a little different, I wanted to go over a few other things that people should already know.

  1. Calories in, calories out. In order to lose weight you must burn more calories than you take in. That’s it. There are no magic food combinations that will help you burn belly fat or anything like that (no matter what certain TV doctors may tell you). Now, even though this concept is simple, that doesn’t mean it’s easy. We do need to establish some basic facts, though.
  2. Every diet works. There have been a number of studies that have shown this. High carb, low carb, high fat, low fat, etc. The key is finding the diet that best works for you. The one you will stick to. THAT is what is really the determining factor.
  3. A lifestyle not a “diet”. The closer your diet is to the way you want to live the rest of your life, the better chance it will work long-term. You don’t want to lose weight only to have it come back, right? Forget the extreme diets and deadlines. If you make sustainable changes to your lifestyle the weight will come off and STAY off!

That’s all I have today but I’m going to have a lot more this Saturday at our workshop. You can get all the information you need here:

5 Things You Should Know About Weight Loss, But Don’t

It’s only $9.97 to attend and if you don’t get something good out of it I’ll give you your money back. I know it can help unlock some misconceptions people have about losign weight. If you’ve ever had that frustration you should come.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Have a great day!
