How Can I Lose Weight?

Did you ever wish there was a “magic pill” that could help you get the body of your dreams? To take out the wiggle and jiggle, and replace it with lean and tight?

If that “magic pill” existed, it would come in the form of a food journal. Research shows there is no better predictor of weight loss and maintenance of that loss than keeping a record of what you eat – really cool!

But also a little scary, right? I mean we don’t really expect you to write everything down, do you? 

Let’s start here: There is no morality to fat loss. I like what fellow nutrition coach Josh Hillis had to say “…nothing you eat is bad or wrong. Nothing you eat is good or right. You are not a bad person if you eat junk food. You aren’t a good person if you eat organic veggies with grass fed beef” – Josh Hillis Fat Loss Starts on Monday

Some food choices will get you closer to your goals, and some won’t. I’ll make you a deal; I won’t judge you for what you write down in here if you don’t. Because if you are like me, you are your own worst critic. 

So instead of judging, beating yourself up, and just plain feeling crummy (negative emotions) let’s do the helpful thing, which looks like this.

  • Evaluate my food journal
  • See where I can improve
  • Plan a strategy for what you can do differently
  • Go to the store, buy good food, bring it home, cook it (positive actions)

Easy? I am afraid not. Eating healthy is a skill, and just like any other skill, it takes practice and persistence to get good. 

And that’s what this food journal is all about. Developing the eating skills of a lean person so we can be lean too. 

So embrace the journey, be consistent with your journal, and practice doing what it takes to Get Lean. Lose Fat. Look and Feel Great.

Make It Happen!
