Why Going to Extremes is a Recipe for Failure
Dear Beautiful Friend,
I asked a client once, “What’s the biggest challenge getting in the way of your weight loss success?”
That started a chain reaction of ah-ha’s that unveiled why she was struggling. She also realized in that moment she was exhausted from it and could not afford to struggle any longer.
She painfully expressed to me how deprivation and going to extremes was her ‘normal’ and she didn’t know better so couldn’t do better!
I think if you are here, I can safely say we all know what that’s like. So much so, that is why I am dedicating my webinar coming August 30th to this subject.
How come we weren’t getting how this was actually a contributor to the ultimate demise of what it is we say we want and rebounding?
I gathered some stats and recent research from the Heart and Stroke Foundation and it was found that 62% of men and women who lost 5 or more pounds over the past five years failed to keep the weight off.
More than 70% of those regained ALL or even more FAT after their weight loss efforts.
The research further states that :
39% of people trying to lose weight followed plans that restricted certain foods or food groups
31% used meal replacement bars or shakes
23% used weight loss supplements or herbs
23% tried extreme fasting
Here’s the shocking final conclusion: THEY DID NOT PROVE TO LOSE THE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF!!!
Back in the day I was told:
~To count calories
~Apply the “no pain no gain” mentality when I went to the gym
~Muster up as much willpower as you possibly can
Wow! It’s amazing what you do when you are just not in the know and feeling so desperate to do something.
Are you hanging with the beautiful like-minded women in my Facebook group yet? I posted the following there the other day thats applicable to the subject at hand here.
