The Diet Solution Program - A Review

: The Program that Promises Fat Loss along with an incredible amount of Health and Vitality.

The Diet Solution Program promises a complete and comprehensive weight loss program that will not only help you lose body fat, but guarantees you increased energy, health and vitality all at the same time.

With so many weight loss programs out on the market and on the Internet today, what makes this program any different than all the rest?

Before we get to the program, let's take a look at the expert behind this program. Isabel De Los Rios is a nutrition and exercise specialist with 10 years of experience helping clients reach their ideal weight and tackle conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and high cholesterol. Isabel has a very extensive educational background in nutrition and exercise physiology. Her personal experience with her own weight struggles and her mother’s severe diabetes led her search for the BEST nutrition information available today. The Diet Solution Program is a result of her 15 year study and research.

I've also talked to Isabel about her training and education background, and I'll be honest, it was impressive, unlike other so-called “health experts”, who are just following main stream nutrition programs. Isabel provides her readers with the truth: the facts most people have never taken the time to research, read and decipher.

Plus, Isabel has been a nutrition and exercise specialist for the past 10 years and has personally worked with hundreds of clients in her own private facility, overseeing successful weight loss programs. This hands on experience with real people solidified the facts and principles she had learned in books, journals and from other health professionals. The proof was really in the results of real people.

In fact, Isabel's articles are pretty radical when it comes to her nutrition principles which is why her approach works when main-stream nutrition fails. So if you are looking for the same old nutrition theories taught in every other book and program on the market today, this is not the program for you.

Now one of the biggest questions about the program is simply, "What is The Diet Solution Program?" Well according to Isabel, it is the most comprehensive and detailed nutrition manual available on the market today. Not only does it teach you exactly what principles you need to follow to finally reach your ideal weight, it gives you the meal plans, shopping lists and recipes to do so. It does not push some extreme, unreasonable way to lose weight. It actually teaches you how you can make this healthy way of eating into a lifestyle. And if you have ever attempted to lose weight in the past, you know that the only way to maintain it is to make it a way of life. The best part about Isabel’s program is that this new way of life is not some torturous eating regimen. She really shows you that you can eat delicious food, combined the right way, to lose weight and maintain it.

One of the best side effects of the whole program is the increased health and vitality that every participant experiences. Decreases in blood sugar levels, lowered cholesterol, increased energy, elimination of digestive discomfort and cleared skin conditions are just some of the few benefits other people have already experienced.

Frankly, I've used the program myself and recommended to many others. Why? Because I was sick and tired of following nutrition plans that either did not work or made me lose weight but feel terrible. Yes, I want to be at my ideal weight but I also want to maintain a healthy body at the same time and not have to resort to extreme, radical methods. The Diet Solution Program helped me lose weight and feel healthy and energized at the same time.

Now realize that some effort from you will be required, but Isabel has really done all the hard work for you. Included in her program is:

Step by step action steps telling you exactly how to put the principles in place
Detailed daily meal plans that make everyday eating easy
Shopping Lists to make food shopping a snap
Delicious Recipes to make everyday meals tasty

The manual is comprehensive. Jam packed with incredible and valuable information. But you don’t need to wait to get through the whole thing before you can start. You can use Isabel’s Quick Start Guide to start the program ASAP. Some people have even just used the quick start guide and lost 10-15lbs in a little as 6 weeks.

The Diet Solution Program is not just another weight loss scheme or extreme diet. It is truly the only way to lose weight and enjoy a lifetime of health. The Diet Solution Program is perfect for people who have struggled with their weight their whole life and are sick and tired of programs that just don’t work long term. The DSP is also perfect for people who want to take control of their health and reverse health conditions like diabetes, high cholesterol and heart disease.

If you're in the slightest bit curious, I recommend you look closely at Isabel's program. I was very impressed with all of The Diet Solution Program meal plans, the bonuses, the guarantee, and Isabel's expertise. For the money, it's the best deal in the weight loss industry - so much better than diet pills! And remember...

Isabel De Los Rios’s The Diet Solution Program is backed by a 90 day money back guarantee. And this is a real guarantee... if you are not completely satisfied, you will receive your money back, no "ifs," "ands," or "buts." So you really have nothing to lose.

Having Trouble Picking Workout Programs That Get Results?

Not sure which program is right for you? I can help

Following a workout program can be hard and boring but it does have some upsides. Following a structured program that has been proven to work for others can help you train with confidence that you are doing the right things and if you stick with it you will get results. If you ask a thousand different people what they thought the best workout program was you would probably get 900+ different answers.

The truth is that there is no perfect workout program that will bring about the best results guaranteed. There is only the perfect workout program for you. Here are 3 things you need to consider when choosing a workout program that will get results for you.

  1. Choose something you enjoy - This is number one for a reason. If you choose a workout program that promises all the results you want but can’t stand the exercises or schedule it requires then you will likely stop the program and not give it 100%. If you like lifting weights then find a weight lifting program the has your goals in mind, if you like doing interval training then choose a good interval training program.
  2. Stick to tried and true - You don’t want to jump on the latest thing that Oprah or Dr. Phil talked about. Every 'new' program you see come out is really just a new marketing spin on something that has been around for quite some time. Sometimes the marketing spin is pretty good and sometimes the information is presented in a more readable manner but it is all the same basic stuff which I will get into in a bit.
  3. Look at the whole picture - It doesn’t matter if your goal is to lose weight, build muscle, or just tone up for a special event you are going to have to change your diet, your exercise, and your schedule. Make sure you are ready to commit to making a lifestyle change before you buy a product from this site or start any program.

Selecting the Right Workout Programs

Okay so now that you know what to look for in a program let me share with you some of the programs that are getting results for other people. I personally own each and every one of these programs and I promise you they are all top notch plans. These programs meet all my conditions of a good program.

  • They are lifestyle changes, not quick fixes
  • They are fun
  • They include both diet and exercise
  • They have stood the test of time and brought results for lots of people (including me)

So which program do you think would work best for you? Don’t over think it, just pick the one that best suits you and get started today. Doing something will get you to your goals faster than doing nothing.

 

This is Bradley Gatewood's personal weight loss story and program. He'll walk you through the exact steps he took to lose over 100 pounds. The program is broken down into phases and eases you into a diet and exercise program that gets harder as you get closer to your goals. Proper goal setting, motivation, workout programs, diet advice, and everything else you need to lose weight. This program is well suited to people who have more than 50 pounds to lose.

 

Tom Venuto is an all natural body builder who looks amazing and really cares about helping people lose weight, build muscle and achieve their goals. This is an outstanding e-book that is packed with information and starts out with detailed goal setting information and planning. Burn the Fat feed the Muscle continues to be one of the top selling weight loss e-books on the Internet today because of its high quality information. The book focuses mainly on nutrition because Tom believes that is where 90% of your results come from. If you like the book and program he also has a website where he and other health experts are very active in the forums and questions are answered quickly.

 

Mike Geary is a Certified Nutrition Specialist and Certified Personal Trainer. This e-book is sold as a package deal and you will get lots of free bonuses if you use the link above to make a purchase. The program focuses on full body exercises and getting abs by building a healthy body from the inside and out. The focus of the program is that the measure of health is determined by the strength of you core (and presence of abs, of course) but you can’t fake that by doing sit-ups or trying to target just your problem areas.

 

Craig Ballantyne is a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist and writes for Men's Health, Men's Fitness, Maximum Fitness, Muscle and Fitness Hers, and Oxygen magazines. His trademarked Turbulence Training fat loss workouts have been featured multiple times in Men’s Fitness and Maximum Fitness magazines and all over the Internet, and have helped thousands of men and women around the world lose fat, gain muscle, and get lean in less than 45 minutes three times per week. The program is centered on doing supersets and interval training to turn weight lifting into a cardio workout. The program is very solid and is based on what old school bodybuilders did to cut for competitions.

So there you have it. Pick one, and get started today. Good Luck and Train Hard.

Beginners Program for Fat Loss

Getting fit can be one of the most straightforward tasks you do this year. A beginners program for getting into shape, , and being fit can be intimidating and confusing. It doesn't have to be that way if you follow these 6 Steps to Fat Loss Success.

First, you should arrange for a full physical examination from your physician. This is mandatory for people that have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, or are obese. Once you have your doctor’s approval to begin a fitness program, you should schedule a fitness assessment with a health professional at your gym.

While both of these are incredibly annoying, they are essential to your success and well-being. The benefits of a doctor’s visit are obvious, particularly if you have one or more of the previously mentioned conditions but it also allows you and your doctor to discuss your lifestyle. Preventative medicine is far better than reactive medicine. Make your doctor part of your fat loss and health-building team along with the health professionals at your gym.

The real benefits of the fitness assessment aren’t finding out how much body fat you have or how many minutes you can last on the treadmill, but rather getting a better understanding of your strengths and weaknesses. If you want to avoid injury and actually achieve your goals this year, get to know your strengths and weaknesses.

The next secret to a beginners program is to walk, don’t run, to fitness success. If you want to pick up your University running workouts where you left them 10 years ago, that’s fine. But I guarantee you won’t last 10 days. And then it’ll be a dreary 365 days until you’re ready to try exercise again.

The hidden benefit of a good fitness assessment is that it will actually serve as a nice introductory workout to your beginners program. It will buffer your delusions of fitness grandeur from the reality of what your body actually can do. After the fitness assessment teaches your body a lesson and awakens your muscles from their winter slumber, only then will you realize your limits that you must respect in subsequent workouts.

Goal-setting is the fourth secret to success (and not just in fitness, but in any area of life) on a beginners program (or advanced). It is much more effective to commit to a set of specific short-term and long-term goals than it is to routinely hope for weight loss each year.

Set realistic goals and remember to train within your limits. If you are currently sedentary and haven’t exercised in months (or years), don’t begin an advanced training program. Start with a conservative beginner program. Your belly wasn’t built in a day, and neither will be lost overnight.

Limit your initial workouts to 1 set per muscle group on a beginners program. In week 2, you should be ready to add another set. And if you want to build up to 3 sets, then do so in week 3. Slowly increase the weight and stay within your desired repetition range. At no time should you be too sore to function. And runners should also heed this advice. Too much running will guarantee shin splints in the early going. Avoid running on back to back days for the first two weeks and keep the distance short. Sore muscles are guaranteed when you lift. So keep the volume low.

And now for 2 bonus secrets that will help keep you committed and consistent with your beginners program workouts and will finally help you lose fat for good.

First, build your social support team. Social support is the #1 factor for success for women in fitness programs, and is important for men as well. Support can come from your spouse, brother or sister, child, mom or dad, friend, neighbor, co-worker, personal trainer, or lifestyle coach. Don’t try to go it alone. People respond better when they report to a person instead of a machine on a beginners program.

You also need to know that nutrition with healthy eating habits is the second most important factor for success in a beginners program (maybe the first). That’s why you don’t need to train like a world-class athlete when you are starting to . Most of the fat you’ll lose in the early going is because you have chosen to make better nutritional choices. And if you don’t make better nutritional choices, even the best exercise program in the world isn’t going to help you achieve your goals.

To Your Fitness Success,

10 Bodyweight Exercises to Use at Home

Do you need bodyweight exercises that you can do at home without fancy gym equipment? Perhaps you are going on vacation and won’t have access to a gym, or you just don’t like to battle the crowd. Regardless of your reasoning for needing a body weight exercise routine your options are almost limitless. A bodyweight workout program can be even more challenging then doing traditional body building programs at the gym.

A major advantage of are that you can mix them together into a circuit program and do some interval training just by stacking them together. Just pick three to five of the bodyweight exercises and do them one after another with no rest. Once you complete the entire circuit rest for about a minute or two and repeat three to five times. You can get a full body body weight workout without equipment and complete the entire workout in less than 20 minutes.

Here are 10 bodyweight exercises that you can incorporate into your at home workout program.

  1. Jumping Jacks - This should be fun since most people did these in their school gym class or as kids having fun. They’re good warm-up exercises as well as good cardio exercises.
  2. Pushups - Pushups can be hard to do, but you can do them on your knees instead of keeping your legs straight. You’re building up arm strength and working out muscles in your chest area, so there’s no need to put strain on your legs by doing them with your legs straight.
    You can also try doing an even lesser impact version where you do push-ups against a wall, so that you’re not using your legs except for support in a standing position.
  3. Leg lifts - These are good for toning up your legs. If it’s too hard to do with your legs straight, try doing them with your legs bent.
  4. Sit ups - These are good to tone up your abdominal muscles. You don’t have to raise your head all the way in order to touch your knees. Just raising your head part way until you start to feel the abdominal muscles stretch would be fine to get started.
  5. Jogging in place - Jogging is good for your heart. You can jog in place in your home while watching television or listening to music. This would require a good pair of shoes to eliminate unnecessary stress on your legs, but otherwise no other equipment is needed.
  6. Squats - These are good exercises for your legs and buttocks. If you find that doing these are too hard, try just sitting down in a regular chair and standing back up again. You’ll get pretty much the same effect and it enables you to complete several repetitions without losing interest too fast.
  7. Burpees – This is the king of all bodyweight exercises and will improve your conditioning more than anything I can think of. The exercise is a 5 part movement.
    1. Squat down and put your hands on the ground
    2. Kick your feet back so you are in the pushup position
    3. Bring both legs back to the squatting position
    4. Jump as high as you can
    5. Repeat (10-15 reps is pretty tough)
  8. Sprints – Get you a stretch of yard or road and run as fast as you can. Turn around and jog back to your starting point and then repeat. Simple, low tech, kick your butt exercise.
  9. Lunges – Step out with one foot, lowering your other knee to the ground. Stand back up and switch legs. This will work your thighs, hip flexors, and lower back really well. The lunge motion is use in almost every sport so it is practical functional fitness as well.
  10. Animal Walks – The bear walk is a really tough exercise where you crawl like a bear (legs and arms straight) for a far as you can. This will work your entire body. The crab walk is another killer. Like the bear but this time your belly up and hands behind your back.

How to Lose Stubborn Body Fat At Any Age

The Ultimate Method for Permanent, Natural Fat Loss…
Discover How to Lose Stubborn Body Fat At Any Age, Even If You’ve Tried Everything And Nothing Has Ever Worked For You Before

If you want to lose fat permanently without losing muscle, and you want to do it naturally – without drugs, pills, gimmicks or fad diets – then this will be the most important message you will ever read. Here’s why:

A small health & fitness publishing company from New Jersey (Burn The Fat Enterprises), has finally decided to publish a full length e-book about how to lose body fat using the little known methods of natural bodybuilders and fitness models.

Here are some of the amazing and revealing facts you will learn when you read this exciting and revealing new book:

  • Why 95% of all diets fail...and the exact, detailed steps you must take to be in the successful 5% (and stay there!) • Why it's physiologically impossible for conventional diets to ever work...unless you know this one simple trick! It's a metabolism-saver for chronic dieters and it's one of the first things the author would teach you if he coached you in person
  • The twelve worst foods you should never eat
  • The twelve best foods you should eat all the time
  • Why dieting below your critical calorie level can wreck your metabolism and actually make you fatter! (and how to know when you're in the danger zone)...also, the precise calculations for your optimal calorie level
  • How to eat 50% more calories without storing an ounce as fat - It's true -you can actually eat more food while losing more fat if you use this simple, but often overlooked strategy!
  • The #1 reason why most people can't drop the last 10 lbs of ab flab and how you can lose it with ease...and (if you want to), go even further and get “ripped” and rock-hard like a bodybuilder or fitness model
  • Important lessons you can learn from the Zone and Atkins diet...including the hidden reason why most people fail on both diets in the long run
  • The one food combination you should NEVER, EVER eat - break this rule and you're guaranteed to pack on lumps of ugly fat so fast you'll wonder what hit you! (and almost everybody's doing it!)
  • Which body type classification you are and how to eat right for your body type (if you're eating wrong for your body type you can forget about losing any fat no matter how hard you train or how strictly you diet)
  • The #1 most effective way to burn body fat ever (If you could only make ONE change to your current diet program, this would be it!)
  • 7 strategies to make sure your body never goes into "starvation mode" and the ONE THING you must do IMMEDIATELY if you suspect it's already happened
  • The three critical factors that determine whether you'll lose muscle while dieting...and how the slightest nutritional "tweak" can guarantee you keep every ounce of lean muscle mass while you quickly drop the fat
  • Dozens of the best-kept fat burning secrets of bodybuilders and fitness models that almost NOBODY knows about...compiled by a 14-year, rare study of the most "ripped" athletes on earth
  • What to do when you've tried everything and the stubborn fat still won't come off (this is one of the little-known tactics bodybuilders and fitness models use in the final weeks before competitions)
  • Secrets of meal frequency and timing that will amplify your body's natural rate of calorie-burning (There's a lot more to it than just eating small, frequent meals)
  • How a "new spin" on the old low carb diet can increase your rate of fat loss to the maximum possible without muscle loss or metabolic downgrade
  • Why you will almost ALWAYS fail to keep the fat off if you use a conventional low carbohydrate diet - If you've failed on low carb diets before, this is the reason why
  • The truth about how much cardio you REALLY need to lose the fat and the best times to do it for maximum impact
  • Not one, but FOUR weight training programs designed to fit your schedule and experience level - plus a "conservative" routine for "time-crunched" people who can't train as often as they'd like to
  • Unleash the awesome hidden powers of your mind and find out the psychological reason why most people unconsciously sabotage themselves...just when their diets are beginning to work!
  • The psychology of permanent fat loss...Goal setting and motivation tactics that program your subconscious mind for massive success...Follow this "secret mental training formula" and you'll be practically "hypnotized" into eating properly and working out consistently

    And that’s just a tiny fraction of what you’ll learn in this information-packed "bible" to a leaner, more muscular body.

3 Fat Burning Diet Secrets

3 Fat Burning Diet Secrets
By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

I recently got stuck in an airport due a delayed flight. But I didn't end up eating junk food. In fact, I have a SECRET that can help you avoid cheating on your diet.

First, you have to be prepared. In fact, here are my meals from that day. My brunch included an omelet with vegetables, some grilled fish & peppers, fruit (pineapple, raspberries, blueberries, watermelon), and a V8.

A late lunch included a grilled chicken salad (2 breasts), jimaca, salsa, black beans, avocado (I substituted the salsa for the dressing). NOTE: Lunch was eaten at a Mexican restaurant. I said "no thanks" to the chips and salsa. So there you go, proof that you can eat healthy when you eat out.

My snacks at the airport included raw cashews, red delicious apple, raw almonds, as well as a banana and more almonds later on my flight.

Without my preparation, I would have been outta luck, and stuck eating M&M's (the peanut kind, of course) and greasy take out food at the airport. So what's the secret? Accountability.

I've committed to telling the world about my diet and workouts, so I can't set a bad example or break my promise to you by eating junk food.

I'm holding myself accountable to you. By doing this, I'm going to be more focused on eating healthier than ever, because I don't want to have to report to YOU that I'm cheating on my diet.

I also need to eat well and research the best options so that I can pass along little insider nutrition tips to you, such as these tips.

1) Most people don't know that the peanut butter they feed their kids (& themselves!) is filled with two of the nastiest ingredients in the world, and those are Trans fats (the "bad" kind of fat) and sugar. So you should choose Peanut Butter that contains JUST peanuts as the one and only ingredient.

2) My favorite canned food is Amy's Organic Chili. I usually stick with Medium, but sometimes I go spicy.

3) I add a little of Mrs. Renfro's Organic Salsa to almost every meal I eat. A little bit with my morning omelet, a little with my chili at lunch, and a little with my BBQ chicken at night.

By the way, you should follow my lead and start posting your daily diet and exercise somewhere for someone who is holding you accountable.

For many people, being ACCOUNTABLE to others is their #1 way to stay motivated and on-track with their diet and exercise program.

You see, I'm committing to you that I'm going to post all of my meals each day, showing you how to eat fast, nutritious foods even when you are traveling or really busy. Accountability is one of the major MOTIVATION SECRETS to success.

Fat Burning Interval Workouts

5 Best Fat Burning Interval Workouts
By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

Long, slow cardio is not the fastest way to burn fat. Research shows that short interval training workouts burn belly fat faster.

I was one of the first trainers to question long, slow cardio for fat loss back in the late 1990's and I believe that traditional cardio is over-rated.

Interval training, or interval "cardio" if you want to call it that, is much, much better for fat loss. It burns belly fat in half the workout time.

I figured this out just before the year 2000. Back in 1998-99, I was but a lowly grad student, studying the effects of androstenedione (the supplement taken by the mighty baseball player, Mark McGwire during his record-breaking home run quest in '98).

In my study (which was published in the Canadian Journal of Applied Physiology for any science nerds like myself out there), we had guys use the supplement and go through a couple of weight training sessions. By February of '99 I was stuck in the lab, analyzing the blood samples using some fancy radio-active isotopes.

And when I say stuck in the lab, I mean STUCK. I'd get there at 7am, and record my last data point at 11pm. Sixteen hours of mad science. And if I wasn't there, I was downstairs in the medical library, studying papers on testosterone and training.

Now coming from a very athletic background, this sedentary lifestyle didn't sit well with me. But there I was, studying for a degree in Exercise Physiology and left with no time for exercise. Or so I thought.

Fortunately, I actually had a 50 minute window once per day of "down-time" while the lab's gamma-counter analyzed blood samples.

That left me 50 minutes to get to the gym (5 minutes across campus) and get a workout in the remaining 40 or so minutes. I knew that if I applied my studies to the workout, I could get maximum results in minimum time.

As a former athlete, I knew that I had to find a way to stay fit and to avoid the fat gain that comes with working long hours in a sedentary environment. And I also had to stay true to the high-school bodybuilder I once was, so there was no way I was willing to sacrifice my muscle to one of those long-cardio, low protein fat-loss plans that were popular at the time.

Instead, I had to draw on my academic studies and my experiences working with athletes as the school's Strength & Conditioning Coach. I knew that sprint intervals were associated with more fat loss than slow cardio, and I knew that you could also increase aerobic fitness by doing sprints (but you can't increase sprint performance by doing aerobic training).

So clearly, intervals were (and ARE!) superior to long slow cardio for fat loss. I had seen first hand the incredible results of sprint intervals in the summer and fall, as the athletes made huge fitness improvements and shed winter fat in a short time using my interval programs. I knew that intervals had to be the next step in the evolution of cardio.

The biggest benefit of intervals? A lot of results in a short amount of time. I knew that I only had 40 minutes to train, and therefore I could only spend 15-20 minutes doing intervals.

I also understand that interval training sounds intimidating to a lot of people, so I need to clear up how an interval training workout goes.

After all, I believe everyone can do interval training for fat burning. Even beginners. For beginners who usually exercise for 30 minutes at 3.5 mph on the treadmill, their interval workout would be to go for 1 minute at 3.8mph and then recover for 2 minutes at 3.0 mph. That's it. Repeat 6 times. If you are more advanced, you would use more intense exercise.

Interval training doesn't have to be sprinting for your life. It just needs to start off harder than normal and progress from there.

Most folks hate cardio, so they are happy to use interval training as an effective replacement to lose stomach fat. Here is my list of preferred ways to do your intervals, ranked in order from best to worst, based on my experiences.

1. Sprinting outdoors (Hill sprinting might be the absolute best method)
2. Kettlebell exercises
3. Bodyweight interval circuits
4. Treadmill running
5. Stationary cycle (upright cycling preferred over recumbant bike)

With those 5 Turbulence Training interval training methods, you'll burn fat fast and never have to do cardio again!

Exercise Less For Fat Loss Success

Exercise Less For Fat Loss Success
By Scott Tousignant, BHK, CFC
Creator of Unstoppable Fat Loss
Author of “The Fit Chic” and “The Fit Bastard”
Co-Author of “101 Great Ways To Improve Your Health”

97% of the people that I see working out in the gym are totally wasting their time.  You may argue with me and say that “Something is better than nothing”, but you are only kidding yourself.

How may people do you see in the gym who have been working out on a regular basis for years, yet their bodies have not changed at all?  Do you see these same people walking or jogging on the treadmill for nearly an hour or even more than an hour every day?  There’s a reason for this lack of results...

It’s ‘Lack Of Intensity’.

Now let me ask you another question.  Have you ever hit a plateau where the weight loss results that you were experiencing suddenly came to a halt?  What did you do at that point?  Did you add in another weight training session or increase your cardio by 15 additional minutes?

Then when you stop seeing results once again do you increase the amount of exercise even more all while cutting back on what you eat to the point where your pet rabbit is eating more than you?

I'll tell you what I'm seeing out there. People who think it’s necessary to spend 90 minutes in the gym 6 days a week in order to achieve any significant results.  Who’s got time for that?  I know with my busy schedule there’s no way you’ll catch me working out that much.

I’ll tell you what else I see in the gym.  People aimlessly wondering around with no plan and no structure.  Their just going through the motions lifting a weight that’s not challenging, walking at a speed that barely gets their heart rate going (because that's what the program says on the treadmill is best for fat loss), and doing the same old thing day in and day out.  Their rest periods are excessive and they certainly aren’t enjoying themselves.

And they wonder why they’re not seeing fat loss results.

What they are neglecting to realize is their intensity sucks!  Lets face it, challenging yourself can be difficult.  We have to step outside of our comfort zone and most people are just not willing to do that

If what I’ve just said has hit a little too close to home then it’s time that you think long and hard about why you are even going to the gym.

It’s time to get the intensity back into your workouts and here are the key ingredients that absolutely must be in place:

1)         You need to have purpose and passion at the foundation of each workout.  Purpose comes from realizing that this individual workout is a step toward achieving your ultimate fat loss or muscle building goal. 

Passion comes from realizing all the benefits associated with accomplishing your goal, such as looking hot in a bathing suit, getting compliments from your friends and spouse, landing your dream job or getting a promotion, increased confidence and self esteem, knowing that you will be around to play with your grandchildren or see your own children get married, and so much more.

2)         Make every workout count.  You’ve got to give maximum effort to every single rep of each set of every exercise you do.  One way that you can do this is by having an intense focus on the individual muscle that you are working.  Feel the muscle working and push it to exhaustion.  You need to connect your mind with your muscle.

If you’re going to go to the gym, you’ve got to give it everything that you’ve got!

3)         Choose a weight that is challenging and push it to momentary muscular exhaustion.  5 pound dumbbells usually don’t cut it.  Stimulate those muscles and force them to change to give you the defined body that you deserve.

4)         Cut your rest time right down.  There are times when I only allow 15 seconds rest between sets, and if I’m super setting or drop setting I may not rest at all.  This is the reason why many of my workouts only last for 20 minutes.  It’s also the reason why there isn’t a dry spot on my shirt at the end of the workout and my heart rate is higher than the people that have been on the treadmill for an hour.

I created The Fit Bastard & The Fit Chic Fat Loss workouts to be incredibly time efficient so you can get in and out of the gym in no time at all.  Most of the fat loss workouts can be done in 20 minutes.  The strength and muscle building phases last a bit longer, but you will never spend more than 45 minutes in the gym on any of my programs.

When you increase the intensity you can cut your workout time way down and it will be much more effective than the long drawn out programs that most people are doing.

5)         Continuous and consistent progress is a powerful way to increase your intensity.  If you are better this workout than you were the last and you plan on being better the next workout than you were this one, you will force yourself into increasing your intensity.

This is where using a journal really comes into play.  Record the workout that you did, along with the exercises, reps, weight lifted, rest period, and total time that it took you to complete the workout.  Make a note of how you feel and how challenging it was.  Create a rating system and rate each workout.

When you follow the above strategies you will have no choice but to cut your workout time in half because you simply will not be able to keep up with that pace.  Basically you are getting more work done in less time.

You have a choice.  You can continue to do what you’ve been doing and experience the same fat loss results or lack there of, or you can do what it takes to get your dream body and pick up the intensity.

You get what you put into your workouts.  Make them fun and always put your heart and passion into every single one.  Focus on your ultimate fat loss goal and know with absolute certainty that today’s workout has a significant impact on whether or not you will achieve it.

Turbo Charge Your Metabolism

Nutrition Strategies to Turbo Charge Your Metabolism
By Scott Tousignant, BHK, CFC
Creator of Unstoppable Fat Loss
Author of “The Fit Chic” and “The Fit Bastard”
Co-Author of “101 Great Ways To Improve Your Health”

First of all this is not about a new miracle pill that melts the fat off your body.  The best strategy of fat loss is to EARN IT.

The first step in earning a lean and tight body is to consume five to six small meals per day.  It is something so simple yet many of us choose to ignore it.  This alone is enough to kick-start your metabolism.

You should eat every 2 ½ to 3 hours.  Each meal should be small and leave you feeling satisfied but not full.  If you are not quite hungry 3 hours after you’ve consumed your meal, it’s a sign that you ate too much.  Basically, take what you would eat during your 3 meals each day and spread it out over 6 meals.

To get the most out of each meal and turn up your metabolic furnace it’s best to combine a lean protein, a complex carbohydrate, vegetables, and essential fatty acids with most meals.

Eating carbohydrates alone will result in quick digestion and an insulin spike.  Protein takes longer to digest and requires your body to burn more calories during the digestion process (thermic effect of food).  Consuming proteins with your carbohydrates will cause the digestion of the carbohydrates to take longer and you will stay satisfied longer as well.

A common problem with the typical low calorie diet is the significant reduction in calories for extended periods of time.  During the beginning stages of the diet you may lose a significant amount of weight but then you notice that your results start to decrease until eventually you are no longer losing weight even though your are still following the strict diet.

At this point you figure that you probably hit a plateau and you decrease your calories a little bit more so you can lose those last ten pounds.  The plateau that you have experienced is due to your bodies ‘defense mechanism’ that is on red alert screaming, “We’re starving!” 

So what does your body do? 

It releases more fat storing hormones and enzymes into the bloodstream and decreases the fat burning hormones and enzymes.  Why?  The answer is that your body is simply trying to protect itself so it stores whatever it can as fat in order to prepare for this famine that you are putting yourself through.  The end result is a decrease in your metabolism.  So what can we do to prevent this from happening?

The first strategy is called ‘calorie cycling.’  It goes by other names as well, but this pretty much sums it up.  To lose weight you definitely need a caloric deficit, meaning that you need to burn more calories than you are taking in.  You should never drastically reduce your calories.  Aim for a 15% to 20% reduction in calories. 

With calorie cycling you follow this deficit for 3 days and on the fourth day you go back to your maintenance caloric intake, which is the amount of calories that you could eat without gaining or losing any weight.  You then repeat the cycle.

What this strategy does is just when your body starts to think that it better make some changes to lower your metabolism and store up some fat, you trick it by slightly increasing your calories.  This also gives you a boost in energy and does not leave you feeling deprived.

The second strategy improves upon the calorie cycling and is called carbohydrate cycling.  So if you reduce your calories by 15%, the reduction would come entirely from carbohydrates. 

This is not your typical low carb diet.  A 15% decrease is not an absurd amount, and you get to bring it back to normal on the fourth day, which will replenish your glycogen stores in your muscles to give you more energy and strength to get through your workouts.

The third strategy is called calorie tapering.  In a five to six meals per day plan, you consume more calories in your first few meals of the day and reduce the amount of calories in each meal as the day goes on.  For example at breakfast, mid morning and lunch you may consume 400 calories at each meal.  Then for the next two meals you consume 300 calories and finally 200 calories at your last meal.

To improve this strategy you should consume your starchy carbohydrates, such as oatmeal, sweet potatoes, and brown rice in the earlier meals and for the remaining two or three meals consume fibrous carbohydrates such as vegetables.  The reason for this is that the starchy carbohydrates are more calorie dense meaning that a small portion of them would equal the same amount of calories as a large portion of vegetables.  By consuming the starchy carbs in the morning it will provide you with the right amount of fuel to get you through your day.

This is not a quick fix weight loss strategy.  Incorporating nutrition packed whole, natural foods into small frequent meals is not rocket science, but it definitely works.  It will take some planning to prepare meals ahead of time, but the results will be worth it.  Best of all, this is a program that you can follow for life.  Eating frequent meals will leave you satisfied and the temptation to binge will be reduced.

Nutrition is a very large piece of the puzzle in your battle for fat loss and should be taken seriously.  To truly ignite your metabolic furnace, it is absolutely necessary to include weight training, cardio, and the most important piece of the puzzle, which is developing a powerful mindset.

Your body will only go as far as your mind will take it.

Get a 6 pack in 6 months

Would you agree that it's one heck of an achievement if you could defeat your horrible genes, overcome a lack of motivation, and conquer a spirit that is ready to give
up because everything you've tried to lose that stubborn belly fat has failed?

--> http://6pack.rxsportz.com

You probably already know the variety of options you have in getting a six pack:

1) You can hire a trainer for $50-100 an hour. At 2-3 sessions a week for six months, you're looking at a six month bill of up to $7,200.

2) You can buy your own home gym which will run you $1500 easily but it's probably cheaper to just buy a gym membership for $500-700 a year and rely on the free training session the gym will provide.

3) You can buy a years worth of fitness magazines which could run you $100-200 easily but you'll have to sort out all the contradicting information.

4) You could buy more supplements that will definitely help your health but definitely not transform your body from a 2 pack to a 6 pack.

I guess, how much you would pay to change the way you look and the way you feel will depend on how badly you want to make your friends jealous and have those feeling of empowerment that six pack abs can provide.

Think about how you'll feel when you look in that mirror, lift up that shirt and see your 6-pack rippling. No lighting tricks...just your abdominals looking just like a professional models'.

You'll probably laugh when you see how little Vince is going to charge you if you're one of the first 500 to get a six pack with him...

How To Boost Metabolism

How To Boost Metabolism with Supplements or Exercise
By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

You can't boost your metabolism with supplements. Or at least not enough to cause weight loss. This is hope in a bottle, but this hope doesn't stand a chance. It doesn't work.

One misconception is that caffeine boosts your metabolism, but I’ve also heard that fish oil, protein, CLA, and green tea will do it, too. As with the fat burning zone, this myth comes from a distortion of science.

Green tea, for example, was shown to increase the daily energy expenditure of young men by eighty calories per day. Now, that’s great news for the people who make supplements because they can put that claim on their label, but what that doesn’t take into account is that people’s bodies adapt to a stimulus.

If there is any benefit to taking a particular supplement, by the end of the week, your body has adjusted to the chemical and no longer reacts to it. And that’s why, as a recent study showed, that taking Green Tea supplements for 12 weeks did not cause any fat loss. Most supplements seem to be nothing more than glorified caffeine pills.

Let’s think of this another way. Say for example that green tea extract actually did help you burn an additional eighty calories per day. It is agreed upon by most trainers that one pound of fat is equal to 3,500 calories. Even if the supplement worked as intended, then it would take nearly a month and half to lose one pound!

Unfortunately, you’ll find big promises from supplements in every magazine, and it is very difficult to avoid the allure of the quick fixes that supplements present. Supplements make you think, “Why work out when you can take a pill?”

And as long as there are people who aren’t willing to work for their results, there will always be a product claiming to work miracles.

Unlike these “miracle” supplements, research repeatedly shows that both strength training and interval training can help boost your metabolism and burn fat.

In one study, women did a strength training session with eight repetitions per exercise and had a significant increase in their post-exercise metabolism. This is just another example of how short burst training will burn more calories and more fat. These are proven results that no diet pill can compete with.

Boost your metabolism with hard work, not the easy way out,

7 Seconds to A Perfect Body

One of the strongest people I have ever seen goes by the name of Paul J. O'Brien. This is a guy who can bench press over twice his bodyweight, deadlift 2.5 times that and leg press more than a TON!.and the amazing thing is, he isn't a muscle bound freak. He's a regular guy, just with near superhuman strength. The really funny thing is he didn't spend years developing his physique or developing his strength - he spent just 7 weeks and only working out for a few seconds!

A top personal trainer and owner of the TOP 1% ranked fitness website Isometric-Training.Com Paul has studied the secrets of the forgotten old time strongmen who inspired the comic book superheroes to the physiques of Greek Statutes and transformed not only his physique and strength levels into something legendary itself, but he's done the same for hundreds of his exclusive clients and he wants to share this lost knowledge with you!

These are incredible techniques that can train anyone from rehab patients to NAVY Seals and deliver incredible results in just seconds!

I know. It sounds crazy but it's true...and you can see it for yourself...Paul even filmed some of his incredible strength demonstrations and you can see them here,

His full 7 Week Course Manual is over 250 pages long and features over 100 clear photos demonstrating each exercise...BUT...it's not even out yet! I knew I had to have a copy of this groundbreaking e-book, but I wanted to share these incredible techniques with you - so I pulled in a big favor and Paul came back to me with an incredibly generous offer for me and my readers....and that means YOU!

Paul is doing a special limited promotion where not only can you get his PERSONAL coaching and advice with the techniques, but he's slashed the price! The catch though is that this is a VERY limited offer because his time is extremely valuable and there are only so many slots available.

Paul's a stand up guy and if you commit now to his revolutionary program , Paul will commit to you making sure you get the very best training at the very best price.

I wouldn't waste anymore time, get over to now and get his scientifically proven system while you can, cause in JUST a FEW days it'll be gone.

Imagine what you would do with the extra time you'd gain from working out for just a few seconds and how easy life would be with the strength to do anything?

Get over to

And stop imagining and start living it as a reality NOW!

Permanent Weight Loss

The Big Picture of Permanent Weight Loss
By Will Brink

Most people who read my articles and e-books know me as a science guy who likes to quote studies and apply research to everyday problems such as weight loss, bodybuilding, and other health/fitness related topics. However, sometimes you have to step back from the science and look at the big picture to help bring people back into focus, so they can see the forest for the trees, so to speak.

For most people reading this article, finding an effective diet that works most of the time must seem as complicated as nuclear physics. It’s not, but there are a bewildering number of choices for diets out there. High fat or no fat? High carbohydrate or no carbohydrate? Low protein or high protein? To make matters worse, there are a million variations and combinations to the above diet scenarios to add to the confusion. It seems endless and causes many people to throw up their hands in frustration and give up. In this article I will attempt to change all that.

There are some general guidelines, rules of thumb, and ways of viewing a diet program that will allow you to decide, once and for all, if it’s the right diet for you. You may not always like what I have to say, and you should be under no illusions this is another quick fix, “lose 100 lbs. in 20 days,” guide of some sort. However, if you are sick and tired of being confused, tired of taking the weight off only to put it back on, and tired of wondering how to take the first steps to deciding the right diet for you that will result in permanent weight loss, then this is the article that could change your life…

Do you need to be a scientist to apply what you will learn here? No. A mind reader or clairvoyant? No. A nutritionist or medical doctor? Not at all. What you need to be is open-minded and willing to learn a few key concepts that will allow you to sort through the confusion.

You will be able to apply what you learn here to any diet you are considering and decide if it makes sense, once and for all! The process, however, is neither easy nor quick per se, but I never promised you either of those things… T

his article does not look at specific diets but will teach you to take a logical approach and apply some common sense to choosing a nutritional plan for life long weight loss. If you are willing and able to make a paradigm shift, then let’s proceed.

Does your diet pass “The Test”?

What is the number one reason diets fail long term; above all else? The number one reason is…drum roll…a lack of long term compliance. The numbers don’t lie; the vast majority of people who lose weight will regain it - and often exceed what they lost. You knew that already didn’t you?

Yet, what are you doing to avoid it? Here’s another reality check: virtually any diet you pick which follows the basic concept of “burning” more calories then you consume – the well accepted “calories in calories out” mantra – will cause you to lose weight. To some degree, they all work: Atkins-style, no carb diets, low fat high carb diets, all manner of fad diets - it simply does not matter in the short term.

If your goal is to lose some weight quickly, then pick one and follow it. I guarantee you will lose some weight. Studies generally find any of the commercial weight loss diets will get approximately the same amount of weight off after 6 months to a year. For example, a recent study found the Atkins' Diet, Slim-Fast plan, Weight Watchers Pure Points program, and Rosemary Conley's Eat Yourself Slim diet, were all equally effective. (1)

Other studies comparing other popular diets have come to essentially the same conclusions. For example, a study that compared the Atkins diet, the Ornish diet, Weight Watchers, and The Zone Diet, found them to be essentially the same in their ability to take weight off after one year. (2)

Recall what I said about the number one reason diets fail, which is a lack of compliance. The lead researcher of this recent study stated:

“Our trial found that adherence level rather than diet type was the primary predictor of weight loss”(3)

Translated, it’s not which diet they chose per se, but their ability to actually stick to a diet that predicted their weight loss success. I can just see the hands going up now, “but Will, some diets must be better than others, right?” Are some diets better then others? Absolutely. Some diets are healthier then others, some diets are better at preserving lean body mass, some diets are better at suppressing appetite – there are many differences between diets. However, while most of the popular diets will work for taking weight off, what is abundantly clear is that adhering to the diet is the most important aspect for keeping the weight off long term.

What is a diet?

A diet is a short term strategy to lose weight. Long term weight loss is the result of an alteration in lifestyle. We are concerned with life long weight management, not quick fix weight loss here. I don’t like the term diet, as it represents a short term attempt to lose weight vs. a change in lifestyle. Want to lose a bunch of weight quickly? Heck, I will give you the information on how to do that here and now for no charge.

For the next 90 to 120 days eat 12 scrambled egg whites, one whole grapefruit, and a gallon of water twice a a day. You will lose plenty of weight. Will it be healthy? Nope. Will the weight stay off once you are done with this diet and are then forced to go back to your “normal” way of eating? Not a chance. Will the weight you lose come from fat or will it be muscle, water, bone, and (hopefully!) some fat? The point being, there are many diets out there that are perfectly capable of getting weight off you, but when considering any eating plan designed to lose weight, you must ask yourself:

“Is this a way of eating I can follow long term?”

Which brings me to my test: I call it the “Can I eat that way for the rest of my life?” Test. I know, it does not exactly roll off your tongue, but it gets the point across.

The lesson here is: any nutritional plan you pick to lose weight must be part of a lifestyle change you will be able to follow - in one form or another - forever. That is, if it’s not a way of eating you can comply with indefinitely, even after you get to your target weight, then it’s worthless.

Thus, many fad diets you see out there are immediately eliminated, and you don’t have to worry about them. The question is not whether the diet is effective in the short term, but if the diet can be followed indefinitely as a lifelong way of eating. Going from “their” way of eating back to “your” way of eating after you reach your target weight is a recipe for disaster and the cause of the well established yo-yo dieting syndrome. Bottom line: there are no short cuts, there is no free lunch, and only a commitment to a lifestyle change is going to keep the fat off long term. I realize that’s not what most people want to hear, but it’s the truth, like it or not.

The statistics don’t lie: getting the weight off is not the hardest part, keeping the weight off is! If you take a close look at the many well known fad/commercial diets out there, and you are honest with yourself, and apply my test above, you will find most of them no longer appeal to you as they once did. It also brings me to an example that adds additional clarity: If you have diet A that will cause the most weight loss in the shortest amount of time but is unbalanced and essentially impossible to follow long term vs. diet B, which will take the weight off at a slower pace, but is easier to follow, balanced, healthy, and something you can comply with year after year, which is superior? If diet A gets 30 lbs off you in 30 days, but by next year you have gained back all 30 lbs, but diet B gets 20 lbs off you in the next 3 months with another 20 lbs 3 months after that and the weight stays off by the end of that year, which is the better diet?

If you don’t know the answer to those questions, you have totally missed the point of this article and the lesson it’s trying to teach you, and are set up for failure. Go back and read this section again…By default, diet B is superior.

Teach a man to Fish…

A well known Chinese Proverb is;

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

This expression fits perfectly with the next essential step in how to decide what eating plan you should follow to lose weight permanently. Will the diet plan you are considering teach you how to eat long term, or does it spoon-feed you information? Will the diet rely on special bars, shakes, supplements or pre-made foods they supply?

Let’s do another diet A vs. diet B comparison. Diet A is going to supply you with their foods, as well as their special drink or bars to eat, and tell you exactly when to eat them. You will lose – say – 30 lbs in two months. Diet B is going to attempt to help you learn which foods you should eat, how many calories you need to eat, why you need to eat them, and generally attempt to help teach you how to eat as part of a total lifestyle change that will allow you to make informed decisions about your nutrition. Diet B causes a slow steady weight loss of 8 -10 lbs per month for the next 6 months and the weight stays off because you now know how to eat properly.

Recall the Chinese proverb. Both diets will assist you to lose weight. Only one diet, however, will teach you how to be self-reliant after your experience is over. Diet A is easier, to be sure, and causes faster weight loss than diet B, and diet B takes longer and requires some thinking and learning on your part. However, when diet A is over, you are right back where you started and have been given no skills to fish. Diet companies don’t make their profits by teaching you to fish, they make their money by handing you a fish so you must rely on them indefinitely or come back to them after you gain all the weight back.

Thus, diet B is superior for allowing you to succeed where other diets failed, with knowledge gained that you can apply long term. Diet programs that attempt to spoon feed you a diet without any attempt to teach you how to eat without their help and/or rely on their shakes, bars, cookies, or pre-made foods, is another diet you can eliminate from your list of choices.

Diet plans that offer weight loss by drinking their product for several meals followed by a “sensible dinner;” diets that allow you to eat their special cookies for most meals along with their pre-planned menu; or diets that attempt to have you eating their bars, drink, or pre-made meals, are of the diet A variety covered above. They’re easy to follow but destined for failure, long term. They all fail the “Can I eat that way for the rest of my life?” test, unless you really think you can eat cookies and shakes for the rest of your life…Bottom line here is, if the nutritional approach you use to lose weight, be it from a book, a class, a clinic, or an e-book, does not teach you how to eat, it’s a loser for long term weight loss and it should be avoided.

The missing link for long term weight loss

We now make our way to another test to help you choose a nutrition program for long term weight loss, and it does not actually involve nutrition. The missing link for long term weight loss is exercise. Exercise is the essential component of long term weight loss. Many diet programs do not contain an exercise component, which means they are losers for long term weight loss from the very start. Any program that has its focus on weight loss but does not include a comprehensive exercise plan is like buying a car without tires, or a plane without wings. People who have successfully kept the weight off overwhelmingly have incorporated exercise into their lives, and the studies that look at people who have successfully lost weight and kept it off invariably find these people were consistent with their diet and exercise plans. (4)

I am not going to list all the benefits of regular exercise here, but regular exercise has positive effects on your metabolism, allows you to eat more calories yet still be in a calorie deficit, and can help preserve lean body mass (LBM) which is essential to your health and metabolism. The many health benefits of regular exercise are well known, so I won’t bother adding them here. The bottom line here is, (a) if you have any intentions of getting the most from your goal of losing weight and (b) plan to keep it off long term, regular exercise must be an integral part of the weight loss strategy. So, you can eliminate any program, be it book, e-book, clinic, etc. that does not offer you direction and help with this essential part of long term weight loss.

Side Bar: A quick note on exercise:

Any exercise is better than no exercise. However, like diet plans, not all exercise is created equal, and many people often choose the wrong form of exercise to maximize their efforts to lose weight. For example, they will do aerobics exclusively and ignore resistance training. Resistance training is an essential component of fat loss, as it builds muscle essential to your metabolism, increases 24 hour energy expenditure, and has health benefits beyond aerobics.

The reader will also note I said fat loss above not weight loss. Though I use the term ‘weight loss’ throughout this article, I do so only because it is a familiar term most people understand. However, the true focus and goal of a properly set up nutrition and exercise plan should be on fat loss, not weight loss. A focus on losing weight, which may include a loss essential muscle, water, and even bone, as well as fat, is the wrong approach. Losing the fat and keeping the all important lean body mass (LBM), is the goal, and the method for achieving that can be found in my ebook(s) on the topic, and is beyond the scope of this article. Bottom line: the type of exercise, intensity of that exercise, length of time doing that exercise, etc., are essential variables here when attempting to lose FAT while retaining (LBM).

Psychology 101 of long term weight loss

Many diet programs out there don’t address the psychological aspect of why people fail to be successful with long term weight loss. However, quite a few studies exist that have looked at just that. In many respects, the psychological aspect is the most important for long term weight loss, and probably the most underappreciated component.

Studies that compare the psychological characteristics of people who have successfully kept the weight off to people who have regained the weight, see clear differences between these two groups. For example, one study that looked at 28 obese women who had lost weight but regained the weight that they had lost, compared to 28 formerly obese women who had lost weight and maintained their weight for at least one year and 20 women with a stable weight in the healthy range, found the women who regained the weight:

• Had a tendency to evaluate self-worth in terms of weight and shape

• Had a lack of vigilance with regard to weight control

• had a dichotomous (black-and-white) thinking style

• Had the tendency to use eating to regulate mood.

The researchers concluded:

“The results suggest that psychological factors may provide some explanation as to why many people with obesity regain weight following successful weight loss.”

This particular study was done on women, so it reflects some of the specific psychological issues women have - but make no mistake here - men also have their own psychological issues that can sabotage their long term weight loss efforts. (6)

Additional studies on men and women find psychological characteristics such as “having unrealistic weight goals, poor coping or problem-solving skills and low self-efficacy” often predict failure with long term weight loss. (7) On the other hand, psychological traits common to people who experienced successful long term weight loss include “…an internal motivation to lose weight, social support, better coping strategies and ability to handle life stress, self-efficacy, autonomy, assuming responsibility in life, and overall more psychological strength and stability.” (8)

The main point of this section is to illustrate that psychology plays a major role in determining if people are successful with long term weight loss. If it’s not addressed as part of the overall plan, it can be the factor that makes or breaks your success. This, however, is not an area most nutrition programs can adequately tackle and should not be expected to. However, the better programs do generally attempt to help with motivation, goal setting, and support. If you see yourself in the above lists from the groups that failed to maintain their weight long term, then know you will need to address those issues via counseling, support groups, etc. Don’t expect any weight loss program to cover this topic adequately but do look for programs that attempt to offer support, goal setting, and resources that will keep you on track.

“There’s a sucker born every minute”

So why don’t you see this type of honest information about the realities of long term weight loss more often? Let’s be honest here, telling the truth is not the best way to sell bars, shakes, books, supplements, and programs. Hell, if by some miracle everyone who read this article actually followed it, and sent it on to millions of other people who actually followed it, makers of said products could be in financial trouble quickly. However, they also know - as the man said - “there’s a sucker born every minute,” so I doubt they will be kept up at night worrying about the effects that I, or this article, will have on their business.

So let’s recap what has been learned here: the big picture realities of permanent weight loss and how you can look at a weight loss program and decide for yourself if it’s for you based on what has been covered above:

• Permanent weight loss is not about finding a quick fix diet, but making a commitment to life style changes that include nutrition and exercise

• Any weight loss program you choose must pass the “Can I eat that way for the rest of my life?” test,

• The weight loss program you choose should ultimately teach you how to eat and be self reliant so you can make informed long term choices about your nutrition.

• The weight loss program you choose should not leave you reliant on commercial bars, shakes, supplements, or pre-made foods, for your long term success.

• The weight loss program you choose must have an effective exercise component.

• The weight loss program you choose should attempt to help with motivation, goal setting, and support, but can’t be a replacement for psychological counseling if needed.

Conclusion

I want to take this final section to add some additional points and clarity. For starters, the above advice is not for everyone. It’s not intended for those who really have their nutrition dialed in, such as competitive bodybuilders and other athletes who benefit from fairly dramatic changes in their nutrition, such as ‘off season’ and ‘pre-contest’ and so on.

The article is also not intended for those with medical issues who may be on a specific diet to treat or manage a specific medical condition. The article is intended for the average person who wants to get off the Yo-Yo diet merry-go-round once and for all. As that’s probably 99% of the population, it will cover millions of people.

People should also not be scared off by my “you have to eat this way forever” advice. This does not mean you will be dieting for the rest of your life and have nothing but starvation to look forward to. What it does mean, however, is you will have to learn to eat properly even after you reach your target weight and that way of eating should not be a huge departure from how you ate to lose the weight in the first place. Once you get to your target weight - and or your target bodyfat levels - you will go onto a maintenance phase which generally has more calories and choices of food, even the occasional treat, like a slice of pizza or whatever.

Maintenance diets are a logical extension of the diet you used to lose the weight, but they are not based on the diet you followed that put the weight on in the first place!

Regardless of which program you choose, use the above ‘big picture’ approach which will keep you on track for long term weight loss. See you in the gym!
