6 Things Killing YOUR Fat Loss

It’s Wednesday!

The Tony Robbins blog I promised you from Monday is ===> Here

I took 17 pages of notes over 4 days and condensed it all into this one blog post for you guys….check it out as I think you may enjoy it…

…remember, all you need is one piece of info that can change the course of you life.

In the meantime.

So many myths in and around the gym…

…so many people not getting the results they desire.

Here are 6 myths that are seriously killing your results from the gym and your fat loss.

#1 Eating carbs after 7pm will make you gain weight (fat)

Fact - it’s the overconsumption of calories that causes weight gain. It doesn’t matter one bit when you consume your carbs…BUT…you have to earn them

#2 Eating eggs will raise cholesterol.

Fact – if you eat foods that contain cholesterol, your body produces less cholesterol, if you don’t, it ramps up its own production.

^^^It’s very clever like that^^^

#3 Eating too much protein can put a strain on your kidneys.

Fact – Rubbish. Show me one “real” study that proves it

#4 Cardio is best for fat loss and toning (girls)

Fact – aside from a clean diet, weight/resistance training is the best fat burner. Cardio has it’s place….just.

#5 You can get all the vitamins and minerals we need from our food.

Fact – 100 years ago, possibly, but with modern day farming and mass production, plus pesticides and other chemicals and pollutants, we are just not getting the quality nutrition we need.

#6 A low fat diet will help you lose body fat

Fact - Good fats make you thin. Essential fat like fish oil and other fats such as coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, avocado, nuts and seeds all play an important role in your health and quest for fat loss.

Basic stuff to some of you for sure, but for others….it’s not the case.

If you find yourself believing any of these, then have a rethink as it could be sabotaging your efforts in the gym.

What Is Your Gift?

what is your gift

True story.

One of my clients told me about a friend of his that dropped dead of a heart attack last week.

He was 49 years old and reasonably healthy.

There was no apparent sign of illness and BOOM!

Tragic, shocking and sometimes unavoidable.

Here’s my point….

You gotta have some urgency in your life.

Most people never use all of their “stuff”

Move on something today like there is no tomorrow because you never know what is in store for you.

Most people never discover what their true talents are.

Most go through life just paying the bills with a job that they don’t care for.

Most people reach the end of their life never having developed their gift.

What is your gift?

What are you better at than anyone you know?

If you can work that out, you should work hard on it every day, become a master and you will never work a day again in your life.

If you want something in life, you have to be relentless, always looking for a way to make your move and get ahead.

Live your life with passion and drive.

Many of us go through life with our brakes on. Past defeats, past experiences and our environment have shaped our life but we MUST break through this.

Develop a relationship with people that are doing what you want to do.

SUCCESS leaves clues, someone once said.

Surround yourself with positive, successful people and just watch what happens.

If there is something in your mind right now, as you read this newsletter, that you have always wanted to do but haven’t…move on it now.

Don’t be one of the ones that get to the end of their life with regret.

If you hate your job, change it.

If you relationships need to change, change them.

If your finances need taking care of, learn about finances.

If you need to lose weight and get fit and healthy, get to the gym and seek out your local personal trainer.

If you have always wanted to travel somewhere but have been waiting for the “perfect moment”, take action now!

Every single one of you reading this has a natural talent yet many reach the end of their life never having fulfilled their potential.

Einstein said ” Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life believing that it’s stupid ”

Find out your gift and live like there is no tomorrow.

Not in a reckless way, but with passion and a sense of urgency.

Don’t delay.

Whatever you do.

3 Things You Should do To Ensure Fitness SUCCESS!

Success

How was the weekend?

I was thinking about what are the key ingredients for getting results in the gym and it basically comes down to a few points…

…here are 3 areas you can start working on today!

1) You work harder on your diet than you do in the gym.

Nearly everyone I know, works harder on their training and leaves their nutrition flagging behind…

…this means inferior results.

Are you eating 2 x your bodyweight in KG in grams of protein every day?

E.G. 70kg bodyweight = 140g protein daily

Are you eating a source of good fats with every meal?

Are you carbs low apart from post workout?

Do you split these calories over 4-5 servings per day?

Do you drink 3 litres of water per day?

Do you prep your meals and bring them to work?

Are you consistent, even on the weekends?

All good questions to consider….

2) You consistently make your workouts harder and more intense.

If you come to the gym 3 x per week and lift the same weights or do the same cardio, then don’t expect your body to change.

The body needs consistent overload from a variety of parameters.

You could increase weight, add more reps, decrease rest time between sets and so on.

Remember, the body has no idea you are trying to build muscle or lose fat.

It just wants to perform the job given to it, with as little effort as possible.

By repeating the SAME workout you are not staying the same, but actually taking a step back as the body will become more efficient the second time round…

…continual overload, however small is required every single time you step into the gym.

3) You have scheduled rest days in the week.

The very act of any type of training is catabolic in nature. This means that the body is broken down.

Very simplistically, weight training will cause very small tears in the muscle fibres. This is part of the reason that you get DOMS or delayed onset muscle soreness.

If you eat well, sleep lots and rest, in theory, the muscle should come back slightly thicker and stronger.

This is a very basic way of explaining muscle growth.

This can ONLY take place when you are not training.  

Training is the stimulus, rest days provide time for recovery, repair and promote anabolism (opposite to catabolism) which is a metabolic pathway that contracts molecules from smaller units.

That means muscle growth.

Muscle growth = leaner, tighter, smaller and less body fat.

It doesn’t mean a huge muscular physique :)

Think about these 3 points and if you are not implementing them at the moment, it might be time to do so…

…you will actually workout less, have more free time and your results will be much more impressive.

Have an amazing start to the week and speak to you all on Wednesday.

PS. It was good to hear that a few of you went to Copita del Mercado on Wentworth street over the weekend.

For those that missed Friday’s newsletter, David Garcia, the owner is offering a 15% discount for readers of the UCF newsletter.

Tom and I ate there last Wednesday.

The food is really good. GET THERE! :)
