5 Surprising Strategies for Successful Fat Loss

I’ve got good news! Successful fat loss CAN be attained. And not only can it be attained, but it is also an enjoyable lifestyle. 🙂

In the past, I’ve eaten many different ways. I’ve certainly discovered that there are foods that work for fat loss and foods that don’t, but most importantly, I’ve discovered that it’s about WAY MORE than just the food.

Here are 5 key strategies that lead to successful fat loss:

  • Whatever nutrition plan and fitness routine you choose, it must be SUSTAINABLE for the long haul. If your fat-loss plan is SO HARD that you can barely make it through a couple of weeks, how on earth can you sustain that as a lifestyle? Sure there may be times you want to tighten up your nutrition a bit for a summer vacation, a class reunion, or some other special event, but for this to be a lifestyle, your eating style MUST be something you enjoy and can do long-term AND produces RESULTS, successful fat loss. Similarly, if your workouts take hours a day, is that really something you or your body can maintain forever? I think not! There’s no such thing as a quick fix.
  • Keeping a positive attitude is KEY. If you play the victim card and wallow in self-pity about your plan, you will certainly be miserable and ultimately unsuccessful. Focus on how great you feel when you eat healthy food, how much energy you have when you feed your body real food, and how GREAT your jeans feel when you zip them up and don’t feel stuffed into them! 😀 Your attitude is ALWAYS controlled by YOU even when outcomes are not.

  • Realize that it’s not just about the food. Fat loss not only happens in the kitchen, but there are many lifestyle factors that play a role. Getting proper sleep, keeping stress to a minimum, and working the WEIGHTS all play a HUGE role in metabolism, hormones, hunger, energy, cravings, and becoming leaner over time.
  • Be kind to yourself. How easy is it to beat ourselves up when we fall off the dieting wagon? We feel shame as we climb our way back up onto the wagon thinking that guilt will give us the most motivation. I’ve found that the opposite is true. When I “mess up” on my nutrition plan, I first evaluate WHY I was hungry or having a craving. I then move forward with new knowledge of how to avoid that situation next time. Looking for a lesson learned, being kind and gentle with myself, and moving on gives me the positive energy to carry on with my goals.
  • Put on your detective hat. When some aspect of your nutrition plan isn’t working, you have to be willing to put in a little detective work. This is a fat-loss lifestyle skill that will serve you well. Any time that you have cravings, excessive hunger, low energy, or lack of results, you should investigate to find the aspect of what you’re doing (or not doing) that’s NOT working for you.

Having basic knowledge of what you should eat doesn’t always translate to the results you desire. When my results stall, it’s time to examine some issues outside of food choices to find the answers. I know that when my attitude is positive and my lifestyle choices are in line with fat-loss success, the food part is effortless!

Successful fat loss is a journey and doesn’t come from a “quick fix” plan. It takes time, practice, and patience to master the mindset piece, to make necessary changes in your lifestyle, and do the detective work it takes to be successful. Want the GOOD news? It DEFINITELY CAN be done!

A solid coaching program will work with ladies day-in and day-out on these strategies. It’s imperative to make important mindset shifts, find sustainable strategies that work in your everyday life, and become a detective of your own body. It CAN be done!
