Do This Before Trying to Lose Unwanted Body Fat

by | Dec 1, 2021

There’s one thing your body needs to be able to effectively let go of unwanted body fat.

Unfortunately, it’s often the one thing most people ignore.

When you sign up for our 1:1 coaching program, one of the first things we will work on with you is the exact thing that is likely preventing your body from easily letting go of unwanted body fat.

Most people fall into one of three categories …

1. Chronic under eater

You’ve been told that a calorie deficit is needed for fat loss (which is true), so you spend every waking minute trying to eat less and restrict yourself.

You have been eating in a deficit for years without much to show for it.

You feel like with as little as you’re eating and as much as you’re working out … your results should be way better than they are.

2. Yo-yo eater

You also try to eat less and restrict yourself but it consistently backfires.

You find yourself in periods of binge episodes and feeling out of control around certain foods.

You’re firmly entrenched in the all or nothing mindset and can’t seem to find your way out.

When you’re on, you’re on.

When you’re off, you’re waaaay off.

3. Chronic over eater

Pretty self explanatory here …

Consistently eating over maintenance either from a lack of awareness or just not caring.

The one thing that all 3 of these categories have in common is this …

They’re all a major stress on the metabolism.

Your body will not respond the way you want it to when it’s under constant stress.

Chronic under eating is a stressor.

Going back and forth between under eating and over indulging is a stressor.

And chronic over eating is a stressor.

What do you need to get rid of unwanted body fat?

So, the one thing your body needs to easily and effectively let go of unwanted body fat …

Is to feel safe.

Which is why one of the first things we do with our 1:1 clients in our 6 month coaching program is called Metabolic Priming.

Often people assume that it simply means increasing calories.

For some, that might be one part of the process.

However, your metabolism is not just a calorie calculator.

Your metabolism is an adaptive and dynamic stress barometer.

So, it stands to reason that we should probably look at the big picture when priming your metabolism effectively.

If you’ve been a chronic dieter … sure, we probably need to increase your calories.

If you’re a yo-yo eater … we need to find more balance.

If you’re a chronic over eater … we probably need to address food quality and quantity.

However, we also need to look at recovery, daily habits, training, lifestyle, and mindset as well.

How do we know when your body is ready and feeling safe to let go of unwanted body fat?

Your body will tell us.

Just ask our client, Crystal, who joined 1:1 coaching during the most stressful period of her life.

You know what we didn’t do while stress was high?

Reduce her calories and try to lose body fat.

You know what we did do?

Primed her metabolism, helped to mitigate stress, and got her ready to lose fat once stress was lower.

Then … boom … 3 months later and 10 pounds came off her body like it was nothing.

Don’t think that’s a big deal?

Well, she had been struggling to lose any weight at all before coming to us AND she’s already lean … so yeah … it works.

Are YOU ready to invest in yourself?

The reality is … we do this day in and day out with our clients.

These are the individuals that know they need to make a change and simply commit to following through.

They are no different from you.

They had all the same fears going into it. They had the same level of uncertainty. They had the same frustrations with other programs.

And the only difference is … they made a choice to do something about it.

They realized that staying the same was not an option for them so they took the leap and made the commitment to themselves.

You have that exact same opportunity right now.

I can assure you that whatever it is you’re experiencing … we’ve helped someone else through that exact same thing.

Look, I know that you’re unique and that there’s no one else like you.

But the truth is … we’ve coached thousands of people through their physical and mental transformations and we have yet to meet one unicorn ;).

At the end of the day, it comes down to that binary decision.

You want to stay where you are?

Or, do you want to achieve your goals?

Make the decision today to invest in yourself!

Keep in mind that our rates are going up effective Jan 1.
