This Metric Reveals More Than the Scale

by | Jul 1, 2021

There’s one metric that illuminates progress more than anything else.

It’s not the scale.

It’s not your body fat percentage.

It’s not your one-rep max.

It’s not your measurements.

It’s not progress pictures.

And it’s not even your biofeedback (although this one is super important).

So, what is this magical metric?

It’s so powerful that it can tell you right away whether a program will be successful or not.

It can tell you right away whether your results will be permanent or temporary.

It can tell you right away if you’re on the path to sustainability and freedom.

Have I properly built it up enough?

Not quite?

Ok, here’s a little more.

Every single program that I tried and failed with in the past caused this metric to go in the wrong direction.

Once I started to do things the right way, this metric immediately turned in the opposite direction.

And even today, if I start to do things unsustainably, I can see the change in this metric almost instantly.

Ok, I think we’ve properly hit our peak level of hype.

Ready to be disappointed in the simplicity of this concept?

The critical metric: Your thoughts, anxiety, and stress over food.

Think about it …

When you are doing an unsustainable program, you think about food way more often.

You finish eating and immediately think about the next meal.

You stress about situations where you can’t be perfect.

You have anxiety when plans change.

And, think about the results you’ve achieved on those programs …

You probably didn’t sustain them.

If you did, you wouldn’t be here right now.

So, as your thoughts, anxiety, and stress over food increased, the sustainability decreased.

Which means your number 1 filter for long term success should be …

Does this approach increase or decrease how much I think about food, stress about food, or get anxiety over food?

Once that metric starts to trend in the wrong direction, it’s time to bail or pivot.

Pretty simple, huh?

Except you actually have to trust yourself to make the right decisions.

That’s where accountability and guidance are invaluable.

Our program focuses on dietary freedom

One of the very first things our clients say to us when they join our 1:1 coaching program is …

It feels like a giant weight was lifted off my shoulders.

That’s because we immediately remove the stress and anxiety over food.

We begin working on freedom from day 1.

That’s how we ensure their results last.

Why is it so effective?

Because when you have a plan that’s specifically built for your lifestyle and your personality, it feels totally natural.

Like you’re not being forced to follow a bunch of arbitrary rules.

Just listening to your body, planning according to your lifestyle and preferences, and doing things that make you feel your best.

It’s easy to stress less when you’ve got more energy, a better mood, and are working in alignment with your nature.

Sustainable results ARE possible!

The bonus is that you get the physical results you’ve been craving, too. And, since we know that important metric will be trending in the right direction …

We also know that the results will last.

Now, none of this would be possible if we didn’t take care of some important physiological changes …

Like priming your metabolism to ensure your body responds the way you want it to.

But, that becomes the easy part.

The hard part is thinking differently and realizing that if you want a result you’ve never achieved before, you have to do something you’ve never done before.

Which means throwing the peace sign to restrictive protocols and chronic under eating.

The best way to guarantee that level of success is to follow a proven process that has produced that exact result over and over again.

Which is exactly what we do in our signature 6 month, 1:1 coaching program.

If you want to see if you’re a good fit, shoot me a private message on FB.

We’ll have a quick chat and I’ll ask you some questions to make sure it’s a good fit. If we both agree that it is, I’ll offer you an invite into the program.
