Let’s be honest here… being ripped is kind of badass, it feels amazing, and it is a massive boost to one’s confidence. I know, I’ve been slightly ripped before.
However, it is a lifestyle that not everyone participates in so unless you surround yourself with like-minded humans leading parallel lifestyles, your newfound badassness will likely fall by the wayside. Not everyone can stick to their guns for the sake of their guns and unless you are genetically blessed, you need to completely change your life in order to sustain a ripped physique.
First and foremost it is imperative to clarify the following; “Fit” is not an adjective—”Fit” is a verb
How you look is not an indication of how fit you are and how “fit” you are is pretty subjective.
It’s highly unlikely that a 300lb Strongman would be able to run a 5-minute mile, nor will a 160lb Ironman be able to pull a 900lb deadlift. Both of said athletes eat in very different ways—neither of which are conducive to weight-loss or translate as “healthy” for most normal(ish) folk. They eat to fuel their bodies in order to perform better at very specific sports.
If your life looks more like desk surfing, baby (or fur-baby) chasing, and domestic duties, you likely don’t have a need to train or eat the way most athletes do.
What most people need is much more simple (not to be confused with easy) and way less sexy than what we are accustomed to seeing on YouTube, TV, blog posts, Facebook, Instagram, and a million other force-fed advertisements. When you shift your focus from flashy, badass and “sexy” to health, wellness, self-preservation, and balance, you arrive at something way more sustainable and realistic. Self-preservation is a different kind of badass—it’s less about aesthetics and ego and more about being humble, happy and healthy.

You have tried it all! You’ve done every imaginable diet and program known to man. South Beach, Atkins, Vegan, Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Low-Carb, High-Fat, Low-Fat, Intermittent Fasting, (insert fad diet of your choice) and you still have not achieved sustained weight loss. This is why you NEED a Life Coach to achieve Sustained Weight Loss!
You’ve done challenges, joined groups, went to meetings, met with a registered dietician and nutritionist, read every blog-post, and listen to podcasts galore. After making many concerted efforts, reality sets in. Even the successful efforts were short-lived. Slowly old habits crept back in and you return to the same patterns and same routines (or lack thereof). To make matters worse, in addition to gaining back every ounce you lost, you also gain a few bonus pounds. That is exactly why you NEED a Life Coach to help you on your weight loss journey!
If weight loss were about knowledge and simply knowing what “the right food” or “the right way to eat” is, there would be no struggle.
If I were to write a book about nutrition and weight loss it wouldn’t even fill one page and it would not sell because it isn’t complicated enough.
Weight loss is as simple as this;
Don’t eat anything that doesn’t rot.
Only eat when you are physically hungry.
Stop eating when you are no longer physically hungry.
I have graced you with my pearls of wisdom, so in theory, you should nail your goal of sustained weight loss! Unfortunately, knowledge is only a small part of this process.
Simple is NOT to be confused with “Easy”!
Have you ever wondered why we relentlessly seek solutions to this issue when the solution is so simple? We do this because we don’t like the real answer! We want it to be repackaged with a glimmer of hope that we can eat what we want, when we want and magically attain the results we are seeking whilst doing so.
When said results don’t appear the way we hope or expect them to or on our timeline, we get discouraged, annoyed and things start to unravel.
Another phenomenon to contend with is what I call the “skinny high”.
The skinny high is intoxicating and addictive. However, just like any other drug, once the high wears off you crash. HARD. If you have ever been drunk on compliments, and positive attention for dramatic body transformation, you know this phenomenon all too well.
Everything is peachy while basking in the limelight, doused in confidence and clothed in a svelte new wardrobe. Sadly, this streak of awesome is short lived. When the comments diminish, and you realize this transformation didn’t change your failing marriage or warrant the promotion you hoped for, cupcakes and pizza begin to call your name.
Welcome to the rollercoaster ride of fluctuating bodyweight. Oprah is one of many VIP passengers on this tumultuous ride.
The root cause of our struggles with food is tedious, monotonous and far from sexy. Sustained weight loss is about support, accountability, patience, and willingness to be uncomfortable.
This is why you NEED a Life Coach for Weight Loss!
