The perfect solution to achieving the body of your dreams in 90 days or less
This is the secret sauce that everyone wants to know about.
It’s the opposite of what you’d get from a program like Whole30 or 75 hard. Look, if you’ve done any of those programs or challenges … I’m not here to criticize.
It makes sense. From a marketing standpoint, they are brilliant because they work with our psychology and create a dopamine response which moves us to action.
Anytime you see an outcome you desire attached to a tangible timeline, you’ll get a dopamine response.
The key is that the outcome and timeline has to be believable in your mind.
If someone says … make a million dollars in 1 week or less … your bullshit meter goes off.
However, a quick glance at the Whole30 website and you’ll see promises of life-changing results, weight loss, healthy habits, no cravings, improved energy and sleep, improvements in anxiety, skin conditions, and digestive issues.
All in 30 days!
Popular diet programs often promise the body of your dreams in a very short time period.
Now THAT will generate a dopamine response as your brain envisions what life will be like with all of those wonderful results.
The problem is … the actual program itself works counter to how sustainable change is actually accomplished.
I’m not against experimenting with it and seeing for yourself. And I’m certainly not picking on that program. It’s the same with 75 hard or any other challenge where you change a whole bunch of things all at once.
But aren’t you tired of always starting over? Aren’t you tired of “falling off track?” Aren’t you tired of making progress, only to find yourself back at square 1 just a few short months later?
Yeah, I was tired of all of that too. So I had to change my approach.
When I was in high school, I played tennis competitively. Then, I coached tennis and helped run a tennis camp when I was home for the summers during my college years.
After that, I stopped playing. After college was the time when I gained a ton of weight and went on my disordered journey of trying to get fit.
10 years of yo-yo dieting and I never stepped foot on a tennis court. Then 10 more years of actually having a solid grasp on my fitness, but still, no tennis.
The secret sauce to sustainable change
Last summer, my family took a vacation to Bethany Beach in Delaware.
The place we stayed at had an amazing tennis facility and ran an outdoor drill every single day.
My dad, who is 73 and still playing tennis, wanted to play in the drill each day.
So I came out of retirement to play with him.
It was so much fun!
However … I stunk.
As someone who used to be pretty damn good, it was so strange to not be able to do what I thought I could. It was like my brain had all of these memories of what we’re capable of and my body just wouldn’t execute.
It was so frustrating.
Every single morning on vacation we would play.
Slowly but surely, towards the end of the trip, I was feeling a little more confident.
Then, I got home and immediately found a couple of competitive drills near me and signed up.
For almost a year, I’ve been playing tennis 1-2 times per week.
I went from playing 0 times per week to 1 to 2 times per week and have only missed a full week of playing 1 time in the past 10 months.
And now … I’m playing some of the best tennis of my entire life.
THAT is the secret sauce.
THAT is how real change is made.
Imagine if I said to myself … I want to get better at tennis so I’m going to play twice per day, plus work on my speed and agility, plus I need to be perfect with my nutrition, plus I have to drink a gallon of water each day, plus I have to read 10 pages of a tennis book each day …
And if I fail to do any 1 of those things … then I’m a failure. And I have to start all over again until I can be perfect.
That’s how real change is destroyed. Aka the 75 hard approach.
Trying to fix everything all at once to get the body of your dreams is the exact reason you keep starting over.
What if you just made a small change where you could easily stay consistent and not feel overwhelmed with the amount of items on your to-do list?
If you’re struggling to get in enough protein, just start with having a high protein breakfast.
You don’t need to do more right now, you just need to build confidence in yourself in that one thing.
If you’re struggling to be more active, just start with a 10 minute walk each day. Or even 5.
That’s it. Build confidence in your ability to follow through.
Then you layer on the next thing.
Then the next. Then the next.
Before you know it, you’ve got a foundation that makes success inevitable.
It actually becomes impossible to fail. There’s no more “starting over.”
So how does this approach get you the body of your dreams in 90 days or less??
It gets you feeling better than you’ve ever felt about your PATH to the body of your dreams.
It makes you more confident in yourself than you’ve ever been.
It makes you trust yourself more than you ever have.
It makes you follow through on the things you say you’re going to do because it’s actually, ya know, doable.
This is the way.
Make the one change that feels the most sustainable and eventually it’ll become a part of you.
I don’t play tennis 1-2x/week. I am a tennis player.
Now that it’s a habit, I can stack another habit without using much mental energy at all.
Follow this formula and you’ll have an unbreakable foundation before you know it.
Or you can keep chasing the 30 day cleanse or the lose 60 lbs in 60 days nonsense.
Don’t let the dopamine hit fool you.
The long game is always the shortcut.
