158: Fat to Fit Part 1 – Nutrition

Mar 29, 2016

I’m excited! We’re kicking off a new series today! It’s called Fat to Fit and I’ll be helping you move from wherever you currently are to further along the spectrum towards your goals. This Fat to Fit series is all about sustainable progress.

In part one we’re tackling nutrition and looking at the kinds of small, achievable changes you can make to improve your nutrition in a way that leads to more fat loss.

In parts 2 & 3 we’ll tackle improvements in mindset & fitness but, for today, we’re focusing on food.

You likely fall into one of these categories:

  1. You know what to do but you aren’t doing it
  2. You’re confused about food & fat loss and aren’t sure what changes to make or how
  3. You feel like you’re doing what you need to do but you aren’t seeing results.

Today’s episode will provide strategies and suggestions for all three.

Before we dive into today’s episode, I want to acknowledge that improving your food choices for fat loss can be really tough if you don’t know what to eat or you’re bored with food. I know I used to spend hours on Google looking for fat loss meal ideas only to find that they were either too expensive, used obscure ingredients I didn’t have or took WAY too long to make. I’m saving you time & energy! I have curated a list of 100 fat loss meal ideas and dozens of recipes and I’ll share them with you for free! Just click the green banner below and they’re yours!

Fat to Fit Part 1: Nutrition

Let me first address fear. It’s a very real challenge holding many people back. I can’t tell you how many emails I get from people who don’t make initial nutrition changes because they are afraid of failure, afraid of the unknown, or afraid of potential future outcomes that may or may not come into fruition.

In today’s episode I share an email I got from a client where she expressed that she is ‘scared to death’ of what might happen if she stops numbing her emotions with food.

I addressed people who fear that they’ll have loose skin.

I shared my thoughts that I feel that is akin to a new business owner stressing over how they’ll find an affordable warehouse space before they’ve even created a product or sold their first unit.

You are clipping your wings! You are quenching your power for progress by limiting yourself with your thoughts.


This is fatal.

You aren’t there yet. You’re here. It’s now. Stop clipping your wings with the fatal blow from your imagination.

When you focus on the negative, you prevent progress. You confine yourself to the prison of your mind.

If you’re struggling with fear I want you to start questioning those fears:

  • Does this have anything to do with what I am able to do right now in this moment?
  • Is this distracting me from what I can and should do right now in this moment?
  • What am I choosing not to acknowledge or recognize when I focus on this fear? What are all the potential scenarios?
  • What can I do right now?

So what about the nutrition stuff? Once we have set our imagined fears aside, what about the food stuff?

Dive into the full episode to hear me explain how you can adjust your food choices to accelerate your fat loss. I explain what your body needs in order to allow fat burning and outline specific adjustments you can make to your food choices starting today.

The very first thing I want you to do is keep a 14-day food journal.

From there, I want you to identify ONE improvement to practice.

If you aren’t sure what improvement you can make, you need to listen to the episode in full so you can hear me teach & explain what dietary improvements will be the most effective based on where you’re currently at.
