Start That Monday Diet

It’s Monday!

Time to start that diet you have been promising yourself you would.

Time to start making the right decisions.

But how?

There is so much confusion information out there on diet.

What one would suit you best? What are your goals?

For example, If you are sedentary for most of your day, a high fat, high protein diet might suit you.

After all, you don’t need to “carb up” for a marathon desk session!

A sensible and organized approach is required.

Having a plan and following it is key; whether it is counting macros, Ketogenic, Paleo, Atkins or Dukan.

You WILL cheat or have bad days, but as long as you accept that when it happens and get back on it ASAP, it’s ok.

That is sustainable, and realistic. If you are at least 80% on it, you’ll succeed.

Be flexible, not just on or off. Make it a lifestyle, not a life sentence!

If you follow a diet, any diet, with specific goals, it WILL work. It’s the process, the knowledge of exactly what you are eating, that gets results. The psychology, the method, your mental approach is more important than what you are eating.

Sure, you can’t think yourself thin. But you can lose weight eating some of your favourite things, if they are correctly incorporated.

The Effects Of Yo-Yo Dieting

How many diets have you been on in the past?

I’m guessing quite a few?

I see people like you who are struggling to lose weight all the time.

It seems like every time I see them they are on a new diet.

When you’ve been on diets in the past, how much did you manage to lose?

Did you manage to keep it off or has that weight come back on?

I get why people do it. It gives them structure and takes the thinking out of what they need to do.

The problem is, diets don’t work in the long term.

They don’t work for a number of reasons;

– They restrict you too much causing you to want the bad things more than before.
– They are way too low in calories (I don’t even believe in calorie counting)
– They are not the right foods or proportions of foods for your body.
– They are designed for a mass population and not you as an individual.
– They do not look at why you became overweight in the first place.

I could keep going but hopefully you get the idea!

Diets make your body think you are being starved, and your body is super smart!

Way smarter than you or I, which means we can’t outsmart it in the long run.

The more you diet, the better your body becomes at holding on to you FAT!

Your body is designed for survival and whenever you go on a diet, your body switches on it’s fat storing hormones because it thinks there is a famine in the world and it wants you to survive through it.

The more you diet the more stubborn your body becomes and the harder it clings on to your fat.

If you really want to lose weight you have to treat your body with kindness.

You must think about nurturing your body and feeding it as many nutrients as you can to make it as healthy as you can.

Only then, will you truly start losing weight.

Stop dieting and start feeding.

This is such a massive hurdle for many people to get their heads around.

But trust me it works!

Even if you have a sluggish metabolism, or an underacive thyroid, or even if you think you got all the bad genes!

The nutrition plan I get my clients to follow, not only makes them much healthier, but they all lose weight and keep it off!

Isn’t it about time you did something that worked?

Insulin- The Fat Storing Hormone

This one hormone can be your worst enemy when it comes to losing weight

and yet it is essential to your survival

because without it you would not have lived this long!

It’s called


It is THE fat storing hormone.

It’s role is to take sugar out of your blood (also called Glycogen)

and deposit that sugar into fat cells.

There are two other places that sugar can go in the body;

The liver and the muscles.

Think of these two sites as buckets.

Once they are both full with the amount of glycogen they can store, that glycogen has to go somewhere else.

And that other place is a bottomless bucket called your fat cells.

Fat cells can grow and grow and grow, making you fatter and fatter.

But the good news is that Insulin is only released when there is sugar in the blood.

The main way sugar gets there is from what you’ve eaten.

Meals high in carbohydrates will cause a high level of insulin release and therefore will either make you fatter or will stop you losing any fat that you are in the process of losing.

So if you’re trying to lose weight, the best first step is to make sure your blood sugar levels are kept level and are not fluctuating all over the place.

This is done through not eating foods that will raise your blood sugar levels too high or too fast.

Low GL foods are good for this.

I analyse all of my clients blood for Uric Acid, Ketones and Glucose levels as it gives me a deeper understanding of what sate their body is is and whether they are in fat burning or fat storing.

This allows me to tailor their diets and training accordingly and get them results rather than just “pissing in the dark”!

If you want results then do something that gets you results.

Like working with me.

I’m taking on a couple of new clients this month.

I’m picky with who I choose though as they have to be a good fit, not just a time waster.

What Are The Best Supplements For Weight Loss?

This is something I get asked all the time!!

In fact I have a client who brings me a new pot of pills to have a look at almost every week!

It drives me crazy.

Back when I was new to the personal training industry I used to advise all sorts of supplements to my clients.

I’m embarrassed to admit it but I did.

Sure some of them got results, but they also wasted a lot of money.

Now I have a completely different approach and it works a lot more effectively and my clients are getting amazing results.

There is no such thing as a good supplement for weight loss.

Don’t believe what you hear… ever!

There are some supplements that can aid with your goals but there are way more important things to do first than to take supplements.

Like sorting your nutrition out first.

I am a real firm believer that the body stores fat to protect it from dangers; toxins, dehydration, starvation and stress.

I also believe that you should focus your efforts of becoming super healthy rather than trying to lose weight.

You’ll still get the same desired effect (weight loss)

but one way will be better in the long run.

If you’re just focused on weight loss then you’re most likely going to be restricting your body of nutrients.

If however you focus on getting healthy then you’re going to be giving your body a tonne of nutrients.

This way you’ll have more energy, your skin will look better and you’ll feel better as well as LOSING WEIGHT!

So rather than focusing on supplements for now (we can discuss this in the future), focus on getting the nutrients your body needs to allow it to start losing weight!

I make it a challenge for some of my clients; how many nutrient dense foods can you get in each day?

They seem to enjoy this way a lot more, especially as I’m not making them “starve” or “diet”… and more importantly they are


So get stuffing!

That’s all for today,
