If fat loss is your goal, there’s a little secret that most people are trying to hide.
Despite all the ads that claim to make it all sooooo easy, fat loss can be challenging.
It’s simple, but it isn’t easy for most people to attain or sustain.
Accept that it won’t be easy.
Anything worth having comes with effort and some sacrifice.
Decide what you want to achieve and follow the steps you need to get there.
Are you ready to work?
If your nutrition plan is too challenging and outside your norm, and feels like the diet equivalent of holding your breath under water…you’re going to come up for air eventually.
I know a lot of people are trying to get leaner in 2018.
Perhaps the plan is to finally have a 6-pack for the summer, or you just want to see a bit more muscle definition in your arms.
Maybe you want to keep up with your kids in a way that makes you feel charged with youthful energy…and not exhausted.
Feeling leaner, stronger, and fitter is something worthwhile to aim for.
Everything in your life gets better when your body is active and full of energy, trust me!
There’s just one thing about getting leaner that most people selling you overly-restrictive diets, unnecessary supplements, and crazy workouts don’t want to tell you.
Getting lean is HARD WORK.
If anyone tells you it’s easy, they’re LYING.
Yes, as you change your lifestyle over time things get easier.
After years of practice, and developing strong positive habits, I no longer find it hard to maintain a lean physique year-round (yes, even right after the Christmas holidays!).
I use strategies that work, and I share them with my clients in my Online Coaching program.
(And, yeah, I’ve shamelessly hyperlinked my two services in case you want to know how I can help you.)
I’m never going to tell you that it’s doesn’t take some work.
It can feel effortless after months or years of using the right strategy and getting habits into place, but there are some challenges to overcome.
That’s not to say that the process is unpleasant.
It just means that there will be some sacrifice required.
If you only want to make minor changes to your physique, then you only need to make little tweaks to your nutrition and workout plan.
If you want to make a big change in your body, you need to make a larger change in your lifestyle.
Is this going to be the year that people to notice a significant change in your physique?
Remember that it’s going to take some work.
Being prepared for some struggle is important, because research tells us that people who expect a challenging path to their goals are more successful at achieving them.
So get ready for things to be hard.
And you’ll be well on your way to achieving the body you want in 2018.
