How to Start Losing Weight Quickly and Easily and Keeping it Off!

As someone who has been in the fitness field for over 35 years I can honestly say that when it comes to losing weight and belly fat, the simplest approach is always the best approach. Believe me, I’ve tried just about every type of diet, exercise and supplement know to help me reach my goals and without a doubt, the best method is the simplest method.

The reason is pretty simple.

We all have different lives. We all have different situations and daily schedules. Some of us are on the go all day long while some of us have time on our hands. What works for me may not work for you simply because of who we are. The trick is to find something that works for you and the simplest route is always the best route. 

Do you want to know the secret to losing weight and keeping it off is? 

No, it’s not about the type of nutrition plan you follow or the type of exercise routine you perform. It’s not about the latest and greatest weight loss and fat burning supplement you take or how many carbs you eat. 

It’s about making small habitual changes to your daily routine that will allow you to reach your goals and something that you can live with. 

That’s it! The real secret is making small, realistic changes to your daily habits and routine. Habitual changes don’t have to be big and they don’t have to be complicated. As long as you are able to live with those changes and can realistically follow them on a day to day basis, you WILL REACH lose weight and reach your goals. 

I’ve trained people from all over the world and if there is one definite success factor it is this. Those that can make realistic changes to their daily habits for THEIR daily lives and schedules ALWAYS have the most success. 

I’ve found that people who jump into a full routine which totally upsets their daily routines and schedules usually don’t make it simply because their daily lives aren’t ready for it. 

Here’s the biggest problem with losing weight and keeping it off

We tend to think of losing weight as a short term fix so we convince our bodies that it’s a short term change. For example, we may want to lose weight for a wedding or for a beach vacation so we say to ourselves, “I need to lose 25 pounds in two months before my best friend’s wedding”. The problem is that once you lose the weight and go to the wedding, there is really no need to continue because it’s just too darned hard. 

That is, the routine and diet is too exhausting and it upsets your daily schedule. For example, you may find going to the gym 6 days a week too difficult or you may find the Keto diet is just too hard to follow. The point is, these types of changes are simply way too much for you to handle on a long term basis (hence, the short term thinking). What usually ends up happening (in my experience) for most people, once the event is over is that they go back to their “old” ways and habits which usually doesn’t include exercise or “dieting”. 

What I’m about to show you is a way for you to lose weight and to keep it off for good.  For the time being I want you to forget everything about exercise and diets. I don’t want you to think about boot camp fitness or a low carb keto diet. Here’s what I want you to do. 

I want you to pick one realistic, daily activity that you can perform given your time commitments and one realistic nutrition change that you can do give your current circumstance. This is where you start. Forget about the keto diet or cross fit exercises or any of that. All I want you to do is decide on two small changes that you can realistically perform each and every day. 

For example, start with a short 15 minute walk first thing in the morning for your daily activity and add a mid-morning snack consisting of an apple and some peanut butter for your nutrition change. Or maybe start with 10 wall push- ups every day and have one leafy or fibrous vegetable with your lunch or dinner. 

The point is, start small. If you start too big (full program) you’re going to confuse your body and get overwhelmed. Chances are, you will quite after a short while. If you start small, you will allow your body to adjust to the small change and it will slowly become a habit. Remember folks, success is all about making small habitual changes to your daily routine that, over time will allow you to reach your goals. It’s not about making one big change because that never works. 

Start small and set realistic expectations (about those small changes) and you will start to notice weight loss. Over time, those small changes start to become habitual and after a while they start to form the new fabric for the new and improved you. 

Here’s what usually happens if you follow this strategy. After first month or so, you will notice that you are losing weight. You start to see results and you slowly add a few more changes to your daily routine. Perhaps you add in two body weight, 20 minute home workouts per week and cut out your processed starches for dinner. After two months you lose even more weight and other people start to notice how great you look so you decide to take it one step further. Perhaps you join your local gym and do 3 full body workouts a week and doing your short 15 to 20 minute walks every morning. Maybe you even start to follow a more low carbohydrate nutrition plan which allows you to lose even more weight. 

Those small changes add up to big, consistent results which propels us forward. 

The thing is, we are hard wired to avoid change. Most of us don’t like big (life altering) changes but most of us can handle small manageable changes. By making those small habitual changes and seeing weight loss results we will reinforce the idea that we can reach our goals. Once our minds become convinced of something out bodies will follow. 

Before you grab a weight loss program or try another diet, I want you to put that on hold. Don’t do anything else until you can follow those two small changes every day for at least 7 days. If you can make those two small changes to your daily routine for the next 7), you are ready to move up and onwards. 

However, if you find you are having a hard time keeping up and missing days here and there, try something else. For example, if you find yourself struggling to get up and go for a walk every morning try saving your walk for your noon hour or try doing another activity. The point is, keep trying to make those small changes to your daily routine and keep consistent at it. Do that and I can guarantee you that you will lose weight and reach your goal (s)
