Consistency pays off – a new healthy lifestyle

A new healthy lifestyle… One of the things that gives us great satisfaction and in fact is the reason we do what we do, is seeing clients/members of ours achieve big goals. Now, it is not always about fat loss and massive body transformation, but it is always about simply ‘feeling better’. Brett Campbell started with us about 12 months back and has actually achieved both of these things. Check out the picture below to see the change he has experienced. It is very inspiring. And what is even more inspiring is that he is still going  – he is building more strength after a great initial effort and continually improving his nutrition and activity levels. Life is feeling much better with 20+kg less, a slimmer waist and more energy. Good on you Brett for finding that new healthy lifestyle! It is now your new habit which means will power is no longer needed. It’s just what–you–do.

What I mean is that what they are collectively suggesting creates short term but unsustainable results, which inevitably leads to snap back. And not only does the weight snap back, it comes back with interest… The reason is that most diets create a metabolic environment that makes long term fat loss (which is what the whole thing should be about) harder and harder. Talk about an ingenious business model… Give quick, short term joy only to take it away (thus creating the need again) and offer the same thing again in a new form that seems appealing all over. We all recognize the need within ourselves for novelty and fresh ideas to keep us interested. What do I suggest then? Stop looking for the easy answer. As a mate of mine once told me when I was learning how to work on my old timber boat, “the shortcut you are looking for will be the long cut you were trying to avoid. Do […]
