Episode 097: Two Approaches to Weight Loss (And One Doesn’t Work)

Oct 29, 2015

I’m bracing myself! I know many of you aren’t going to like what I have to say on this episode! The reason I think there will be resistance is because we live in a quick fix culture. We want what we want and we want it now. We don’t want to wait. We don’t care about the long term, we’ll deal with that later, we just want to get results as fast as possible. This miiiiiight not be the best approach to fat loss. I can tell you from my own experience and my experience with clients that it is absolutely not!

In fact, I think there are two approaches to weight loss (and one usually doesn’t work). You can either be playing the short term game or the long term game. The short term game is about speed. It’s fueled by impatience which often backfires.

Two Approaches to Weight Loss

If speed is your priority, is that working for you? If it is, awesome.

Look at your past – has the “fast as possible” approach worked for you?

  • Fast, rushed, results-oriented
  • Patient and process-oriented

Be curious, not critical.

Learn to love the game. If you want permanent results, you need permanent change.

Impatience impedes progress
