A Diet And Exercise Plan That Works Every Time

Why do diet and exercise plans fail?

Have you had trouble losing weight?

Diets that don't work?

Exercise without results?

Are you frustrated by no being able to get to a weight you are happy with?

Do you just lose some and then gain it back?

Does losing weight seem like too much of a struggle?

Then here's a vital step for you to take... BEFORE starting another diet... BEFORE picking an exercise program...

Stop and find an answer to this question:

What can you do to lose weight that you know will work every time?

Are you getting predictable results?

There must some things that you know you can count on to get results.

You know what I mean -- the things that work for sure. That work every time. That you can always count on. Right?

Whatever it is -- when you decide it's time to lose some weight you turn to it again.

Maybe it's the grapefruit diet. Or Atkins. Or cabbage soup. Or whatever. It worked before. So you do it again.

He who chooses the beginning of the road chooses the place it leads to. It is the means that determines the end.

Still overweight?

I had a woman in my office the other day. She had recently developed diabetes.

She was concerned about her high blood pressure. And her cholesterol. And her weight.

She weighs 265 pounds (120 kg), and she is only 5 feet 2 inches (160 cm) tall.

And do you know what she told me? She said, "I don't have any trouble losing weight."

No trouble losing weight

She told me that she can always lose weight. She doesn't have any trouble losing weight. She can always take weight off very fast.

This poor woman:

  • is twice her ideal weight,
  • and now has diabetes
  • and high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • and sadly enough is at risk for worsening health and early death.

Lost and blind

They call it "the elephant in the room." It's the thing that is there but you can't see it. And until you see it and figure out what to do about it, you're at risk.

She's physically falling apart. She's going to get much worse if something doesn't change. And she's convinced that she can lose weight easily.

Why? Because she had a diet that seemed to work in the past. At leasthe lost some weight with it. Temporarily.

And now she thinks that she knows what works. She's sure that she knows what diet and exercise plan will work.

Vitality shows in not only the ability to persist but the ability to start over.

Never ending diet

She thinks all she needs to do is do the same diet she used last time...

Which is the same diet that she used to take off 45 pounds the year before...

And the one that worked so well the year before that.

When the solution becomes the problem

Now, you could just say, "Well, her diet just didn't work." But it's worse than that.

This is closer to the truth: Whatever she's doing to lose weight is actually making her gain weight.

The more she tries her "diet", the heavier she gets.

Just think about this for a moment:

  • If you gain weight after a diet, was the diet effective?
  • If you have diabetes from being overweight, is your diet working?
  • If your weight causes high blood pressure, did your diet and exercise plan do what it should?
  • If your cholesterol shoots through the roof, do you think you might be eating the wrong things?

Looking at things through a fresh set of eyes

There is a way out of that trap, the trap of doing "what worked before."

It requires taking a fresh look at what you're going to do to lose weight. Don't accept anything at face value. Require some proof.

Whatever it is -- whether a favorite diet or an exercise routine -- make it prove itself this time.

Escape from the treadmill of continuous failures and frustration

Ask yourself, "Why am I doing what I'm doing?"

Don't just keep plugging away on the treadmill -- week after hopeless week -- in the "fat burning zone."

Don't just do the "miracle diet" again this year.

Search. Investigate. Experiment. Settle only for what helps you lose weight -- achieving your goal weight -- and keeps you stable and healthy.

In other words, expect results. And don't settle for anything less.

When you're ready for results...

The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.
