Drop this story.
Over the years I have been fortunate enough to help guide hundreds of people to their health and body goals. I’d say over 90% of these people knew enough about exercise and diet to get results by themselves. For many of them, they knew how to get the results they wanted, yet they couldn’t seem to be able to make hardly any progress.
The majority of these people had been telling themselves that getting results was super difficult, and that they would practically have to live in the gym while depriving themselves of their favourite foods to get to what they want to look and feel like.
Here’s the thing. If you think that you have to train almost every day to get the results you want, that will be your experience, and it will always seem like an uphill battle.
If you believe that you have to cut carbs, fats, sugars or any other delicious food from your diet to start seeing progress, then you will constantly feel deprived on your quest to look and feel better, and that ain’t no fun!
Now I’m not saying you can sit on your backside all day, eating cookies, ice cream and pizza, while forming your perfect body. There certainly have to be some changes made to see different results. However, you don’t need to exercise excessively or diet aggressively to get the results you want. Sure, some structured, regular, enjoyable exercise will help you get results, as well as making 1 or 2 changes to your daily diet habits. But thinking that getting results is a hard grind, will always have you battling with crazy diets and exercise plans for the rest of your life.
Think about dropping your current story surrounding getting results. What do you believe it takes to get you the body you want? What stories have you been telling yourself surrounding getting into better health and shape? Are these stories serving you in a positive way?
