6 Fat Loss Lessons I’ve Learned From My Clients

  1. There is no “ideal” or “average” rate of progress. Everyone’s progress looks different and that is totally ok. We tend to measure against what the diet industry has told us is normal/ideal (2 lbs/wk) and for many people, that’s not how progress is achieved. And that’s perfectly wonderful!!
  2. People need different degrees of indulging and abstaining for best results. There’s no magic formula for consistency or indulging.
  3. We very quickly forget where we started and that’s a huge red flag
  4. Your willingness to ask for help (even when you aren’t comfortable) is directly correlated to your success and the rate of your results
  5. Learning to switch your focus is immeasureably effective
  6. We tend to pull away when we really should lean in. Resisting the urge to pull away and instead leaning in when you don’t feel like it is directly related to the rate of your progress

    Elizabeth you said something so insightful this episode (or was it the one before)? Anyway, you acknowledged that for some people abstaining works better than moderation. That is certainly true for me, especially with respect to foods containing more than just a smidgen of flour and sugar (particularly sugar…I have zero control.) I stopped eating it four years ago and have never looked back. There are some non-four/sugar foods that I should abstain from (French fries, nuts, popcorn and potato chips) but for some reason, after I indulge in them I am able to get right back on track. Go figure. Thanks for the information!
