The Biggest Weight Loss Mistake

by | May 3, 2021

Not enough people discuss this MAJOR trade off when trying to lose fat.

First, let me ask you to reflect for a moment.

Think back to the last time you successfully lost weight.

Statistically speaking, 6 out of 7 people who attempt weight loss will be successful in achieving it. (Sustaining it is a different story, but that’s not the point here.)

You were likely reducing calories in some manner and moving more.

Remember the progress you made before hitting a plateau.

Now, think about how you felt.

I would venture a guess that you weren’t exactly setting the world on fire with your training.

I’m sure you’ve cut or restricted calories plenty of times since then.

Think about each of those times (might even be present day) and your energy during your workouts, the strength you had to lift heavier, and how rejuvenated you felt after a hard session.

It’s probably not the fondest of memories.

Personally, I remember dieting and failing a lift for a double that I was able to hit for 10 reps when I was eating more.

Talk about an ego hit.

Did you make this weight loss mistake?

What most people don’t understand is that sacrificing muscle, strength, and performance for the sake of fat loss is a risky proposition.

Cutting calories too low or living in a constant state of restriction comes with lots of collateral damage.

This trade off also makes it much more difficult to sustain your results and to be consistent.

Why does it impact consistency? Shouldn’t you be able to just stay disciplined?

That’s like telling a sex addict to be more disciplined while locking him in a room full of hookers lol.

I mean … sure … we can try to rely on willpower but why put yourself in that position?

There is actually a chemical reaction going on in your body that is the perfect storm of hormones and neurotransmitters to make consistency more difficult.

Why would your body do that?

Because energy deprivation is not exactly what your body wants to endure.

There are some very simple adjustments that can be made to successfully lose body fat WITHOUT the sacrifices of losing muscle, strength, performance, and tanking your energy.

Rather than tell you …

Today, I want to show you.

Here is what our client, Emily, had to say …

Joining POP has been the best decision I’ve made for my health! When I first started I had a shitty relationship with food, my body, and the scale.

I was horrified that I was passing this down to my kids, and knew I needed to make a change.

I’ve lost 29 lbs. and 12% body fat, and still hitting PR’s at the gym!!

I feel amazing and am so happy with my results so far! The physical results have far exceeded my expectations, but I think the best part has been the shift in my mindset.

Emily's testimonial
More importantly, notice that Emily didn’t sacrifice strength or muscle. In fact, her body scan showed ZERO muscle loss and she kept hitting PRs.

So maybe … just maybe … we know a thing or two when it comes to the damaging nature of restrictive protocols and chronic under eating.

And maybe … just maybe … there’s something to this whole concept of Neurotyping + metabolic priming.

The other thing I want you to consider …

Is imagine those results for yourself.

Regardless of what you’re trying to accomplish, imagine feeling what Emily feels right now.

That she’s setting a better example for her kids.

That she feels confident in her own skin.

That she doesn’t have to stress over food or wonder what works for her.

That she has the freedom to enjoy her life while achieving her goals.

Think about YOUR desires.

What would that FEEL like?

What would that MEAN to you?

And, now tell me that you still question the VALUE and investment into the POP method.

You can keep telling yourself it’s a cost or an expense or whatever else you want to believe.

When the truth is staring you right in the face, it’s hard to ignore.

It’s costing you infinitely more to NOT invest.

Do you think Emily questions whether it was worth it?

I’ll let you marinate on that for a bit.

And, when you’re ready to make a change and unlock results that you never imagined possible … I’ll be here.

I’ll make sure you’re a good fit so I know that we can deliver the same results for you before I invite you into the program.
