Build Muscle To Lose Fat

There’s a fairly standard approach to weight loss…eat less and move more. To most people this means a restrictive diet and hitting the treadmill.

Meal Planning For Beginners

Meal planning for beginner’s is the perfect place to start if you’re new to the world of “dieting” or like most, you’ve been immersed unsuccessfully for far too long to remember.

It’s time to get back to basics.

No matter what diet you’re following or attempting to follow – Eat By Design, Paleo, Vegetarian, Standard North American, Mediterranean – the only way for sustainable success is to plan your meals in advance.

While one week is a good starting point, “in advance” could just be the day before or morning of at the start of this new habit.

What it can’t be (assuming success is the goal) is right now, in the moment.

Only someone with exceptional dietary habits, who has been eating the same way for years and has thousands of meals “under their belt” can get away with this strategy, for everyone else, it’s meal planning for beginner’s!

The No Nonsense Fat Loss Formula

Are you tired of all the confusing advice when it comes to fat loss? There’s absolutely no shortage of it. Eat this special fruit from the rainforest or burn your fat away in less than 5 minutes a day…you get the picture.

Thankfully, there is a no nonsense fat loss formula. It’s simple and it works, if you’re willing to do the work.

Do you see the problem?

More than 50% of North American adults want to lose weight but only 25% are seriously working toward that goal.

As the rates of obesity and percentage of the population classifying themselves as overweight continues to climb, it’s safe to say that people are becoming less motivated to drop the pounds.

One big reason could be the number of failed and repeated attempts to make your diet work. I get it…why would you want to keep doing something that never seems to deliver the results you’re working so hard for? That’s a ton of wasted effort and a regular blow to the self-esteem with minimal return.
Since this is the “no nonsense” fat loss formula…let’s start by being real…

Most people fail because they trade off what the want most for what they want in the moment.

The perfect training program, the perfect diet, the perfect everything will not work if you can’t sustain it for more than a day or two.

This formula is all about making fat loss simple (not easy). If it’s simple, there’s a better chance you’ll keep up with it.

The second component of this fat loss formula is the fact that it works. It’s based on the best science we currently have related to sustainable fat loss. If it works, there’s also a better chance you’ll keep up with it.

Simple + effective = results.
