Powerful Fat Loss

Posted by: | Comments (0)

As I’m sitting here nursing my body back to health; I had an inguinal hernia operation last week and not only am I recuperating from that, but now have the added double-whammy of what feels like a pinched nerve in the lower left hand side of my back. I already had a condition called Spondylolisthesis (def: a condition in which a bone (vertebra) in the lower part of the spine slips forward and onto a bone below it), and have been nursing that for over 25 years now.

Here's a photo of my hernia scar

I’ve lived with it, and have managed to continue to exercise all these years without problem (in fact, I believe exercise has helped me by strengthening my lower back muscles).

However, I now have a new found appreciation for those that suffer from lower back pain as this has basically immobilized me like nothing else has in my entire life. At this moment I can barely roll out of bed without excruciating pain.

HOWEVER, I REFUSE TO ACCEPT THIS PAIN and will document for those of you that also suffer what I did to alleviate it (notice I didn’t say “if” I alleviate the pain…). I have already set in place a powerful “strategy” to get rid of my back pain and start exercising again.

Which leads me to what I want to talk to you about today. Please read this quote from Brian Tracy first (famous self-help guru):

“The strangest secret of success is you become what you think about – most of the time. Successful people think and plan better than unsuccessful people. That’s all.” – Brian Tracy

As the title of this post imples, “POWERFUL FAT LOSS” is what this blog post is all about…

HOWEVER… you won’t find a single “tactic” here to help you achieve powerful fat loss results…

Instead, you’ll find key “strategies” that will make powerful fat loss happen for you NOT JUST for the next 4 weeks, or the next 12… Instead, these strategies will help you permanently achieve powerful fat loss results (and actually, anything else you desire to accomplish on this earth).

There is a HUGE difference between “tactics” and “strategies”… with strategy being defined by Wikipedia as: “A strategy is a plan of action designed to achieve a particular goal.” A tactic is defined as : “The science that deals with securing objectives set by strategy.”

Notice that “strategy” comes first, then tactics. Without a proper strategy in place, the tactics will be meaningless.

By the way, a tactic, in terms of our powerful fat loss subject today, is something like, “do 3 sets of 5 exercises in the bench press.”

As you can see, if your overall strategy is to lose 25 pounds by Feb 28, 2010, then simply just performing “tactics” will not get you there. There has to be an overall strategy combined with sub-strategies, a “plan”, that you will follow in order to achieve your particular goal.

Strategy is the “big picture” goal of what you want to accomplish, and tactics are the things you’re going to do to reach that goal.

What most people do is they just start performing “tactics” or “tips” without a general overall sense of direction or milestones their strategy would have mapped out for them (if they had one).

This is like getting in the car without planning how you’re going to go the, say, 1,000 mile trip you’ve planned. You just start driving. Your tactics are known (put the car in drive, push down on the accelerator, start steering…). Yet there is no direction for how to get you where you want to go… no “strategy”.

Most people know it’s ludicrous to plan a trip this way, because there really isn’t a plan in place. In fact, most people are meticulously detailed whenever they plan this kind of trip. Mapping out routes, figuring out the shortest and easiest way to get to their destination, and then following this plan until they reach their goal… no matter the obstacles in the way (unexpected car troubles, bathroom breaks, pulled over by police, etc.).

If you haven’t noticed, the kind of planning you did above for a road trip can be used for achieving ANY kind of goal (read the last sentence above to see what I mean).

Yet when people go on this “trip” of trying to lose fat, they just “push down on the accelerator and start driving”. No wonder most people meander off course and never reach their powerful fat loss goal (heck, they didn’t even have one in the first place).

So how and what do you do to set a powerful fat loss strategy? Check out my P.S. below for a way to jump start your 2010 with a powerful fat loss strategy that should permanently give you powerful fat loss results. It’s free, and it’s my gift to you.

My next blog post will talk about the biggest problem that even the best laid strategies can’t tackle, unless you do something about it first. It is THE #1 thing you must get solved before you even begin to start thinking about putting any kind of powerful fat loss strategy into place. Look for this post in the next couple of days.

Even the best strategy will be meaningless unless you have this problem solved. So go to my P.S. below, download my “BLUEPRINTS TO POWERFUL FAT LOSS” report now (it’s free), and start reading and planning. The final piece to the powerful fat loss puzzle will come in a few days.

Have a Happy and Safe New Year!

Weight Loss Tips

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Get ready… it’s just around the corner… the annual “New Years Resolutions” list is almost here… (and my Top 3 Weight Loss Tips for you below)

Everyone makes one… yet most don’t do a fraction of what they say they’re going to do…

How come?

I’m no better, shoot, I’ve screwed up more times than I care to admit in my life.. failing to follow through was my middle name. I realized though that life was passing me by… and if I wanted to get somewhere significant, I’d better get cranking.

So I have this statement in big, bold, red letters on a single white sheet of paper taped to the wall right in front me so I can literally see it all the time. Here’s what it says:

“What Do I Have To Do Every Hour of Every Day to Get From Where I Am To Where I Want To Go?”

Because it’s really just as simple as that. What we do each hour of the day will determine our future outcome. There’s nothing mythical or new ageish here. Just simply focus on what you can AND will follow-through with. It will determine where you will be, either with your body, your finances, health, relationships, whatever.

So since this is a fitness blog, let me give you my TOP 3 WEIGHT LOSS TIPS to help you get going for this next years resolutions…

1. Plan

2. Plan

3. Plan

I know, not so earth-shattering… or is it? Remember this statement… “little hinges swing big doors…” Sometimes the simplest things can carry the most weight.

Read the post below this one, the one about “The Biggest Loser” . Did you notice that almost all of them said “planning” was their key to success? They always know where, what, and when their next meal is going to come. No guesswork.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO ACHIEVE SUCCESS IN A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G IN LIFE? Follow the path(s) of people that blazed the trail before you.

So listen to what The Biggest Loser folks (and me) say:

1. Plan your meals in advance

2. Plan when you will exercise (and stick to it – not enough time simply means not prioritizing it high enough on your daily “things to do” list)

3. Plan to experience hurdles and roadblocks and have back-up plans in place.

That’s it!

Let me know if you think this post resonates with you, and if I get enough comments about it I’ll post a follow-up post to my weight loss tips that goes into more detail on specific strategies you can implement right now (that don’t take a lot of time).

Biggest Loser

Posted by: | Comments (0)

These formerly overweight individuals learned (through personalized coaching) the right ways to get in shape.

I just watched the video interview of the winner and finalists in this past years Biggest Loser contest. They all echo a very similar message, one I’ve been preaching for a very long time. But instead of me telling you, how about they tell you in their own words…
Helen Phillips (winner)- From a size 22 to size 2

“Every week got easier and easier for me because I just started believing in myself”
“I hated that treadmill in the beginning, but before you knew it I was running, next thing you know I’m running marathons!”
“I have these feelings of belief, encouragement, accomplishment, happiness… it’s good to feel happy”
“I will not go anywhere without a small cooler, and snacks packed for the day. In the hustle and bustle of life you’re going to become ravenously hungry. If you don’t have your nutritional snacks packed, you’re going to go through drive-thru’s!”

Tara Costa:

“The best tip I can give you for weight loss is preparation… planning is key to success, and, that is what I’ve done for 9 months, and still, to this day, am bringing my own cooler to places and making sure that I have my meals planned out.”

“Write your food down daily, therefore, one day when you’re busy go back to an old day and you know what to eat, it’s already planned out for you because you’re meticulous with your food journal.”


“My biggest tip for snacking and losing weight, dieting in general… is to be accountable for yourself.”

“That’s the main thing… your diet is more important than your exercising. If you lie to yourself essentially, about what you’re putting into your body, you’re not going to get the results you want.”

“And just being accountable for your actions is the most important part of losing weight”
