Are you sick of starting weight loss diets, have them work for a little while, only to return back to square one (or worse)?
Or maybe you swore off fad diets, and instead of outlawing
foods, you’re now seeking the “perfect” calorie target as you try to analyze
your way into weight loss.
It doesn’t matter if you’re forcing yourself to avoid your
favorite foods, forcing yourself to eat fewer calories than you really want, or
forcing yourself to do forms of exercises that you hate… when you burn through
willpower by being at war with yourself, you set the stage for burning out,
gaining the weight back, and failing to TRULY learn the skills for maintaining
a healthy weight.
If you’ve lost weight only to gain it back, you’re not alone…
You might not be surprised to learn that only 5 percent of crash dieters are able to keep the weight off.
“Well of course they did! Crash dieting doesn’t work, everybody knows
But what about dieting in
general? Now this might surprise you…
65 percent of ALL dieters gain their weight
back within 3 years.
That’s fewer than 2 out of 5 people keeping the
But does this mean that
sustainable weight loss is truly impossible?
Certainly some people say it is…
Not at all. Because check THIS out: the National Weight Control Registry tracks
people – currently over 10,000 - who have lost 30 lbs or more and maintained
that weight loss for over a year.
The average weight lost is 66 lbs
with having that weight loss maintained for 5 1/2 years
In other words, while losing
weight and then gaining it back is very common, it’s certainly not the
rule. The statistics show that on
average, the people that do win the weight loss game win pretty big.
The reason most people fail to keep the weight off is because of the strategies they’re attempting to use from the get-go.
The behaviors that you use to lose weight need to remain in
place in order to keep that weight off (unless you systematically replace those
behaviors with better ones proactively…but who is doing that?)
If you lose weight by counting calories, you’re probably
going to have to keep counting calories.
And if you’ve counted calories before, you probably already know that’s
not something you want to do for the rest of your life.
If you lose weight by doing a ton of cardio, what’s going to
happen when you can’t keep up that pace anymore? Sooner or later you’ll need to decrease how
much you’re doing due to schedule demands or due to an injury. If you're trying to control your weight purely by
exercise, you’re going to be in for a lot of frustration when your brief
workout hiatus results in weight quickly returning.
And let’s not forget losing weight by removing “bad”
foods. This is the most disastrous
method of them all. Nothing gives a food
power over you quite like putting it on the “naughty” list. And if you lose 5 lbs by removing chocolate,
bread, or ice cream, or any other food that you love… I can nearly guarantee
you’ll gain at least 6 lbs back.
You’re not the problem here.
It’s not that you’re abnormally low on willpower, or that
your metabolism is defective.
It’s that ALL people respond similarly to the usual
approaches…and that’s not well.
So how do you avoid the usual pitfalls?
Is there a step-by-step system that will set you up for
success from day 1 so you can be a real winner in the weight loss game?
There is, and that’s exactly what this page is all about…
Since temporary diets don't work, the only logical solution is to make a permanent change to

away in fear, let's define what that means.
I'm not talking
about a longer term version of restriction, removal of your favorite foods, or
any of the other quick fix nonsense. The solution isn't to just try to do
that stuff for a longer period of
I'm talking about
a different kind of lifestyle change. One that's 100%
realistic from day one and designed to fit your life.
There's no way
around it, if you're not getting the results you want, you need to change your
habits. But that doesn't mean changing everything about your life.
It's a matter of changing what needs to be changed to get the results you
want, and not messing with everything else.
By focusing on
changing one single behavior at a time, we can avoid one of the biggest
pitfalls for people trying to lose weight - draining willpower. All
change takes some willpower. But attempting to make changes that are
too big drains our willpower too fast. And
that's when things go sideways... we go from "eating perfectly" to
binge eating M&Ms.
But by focusing on
one habit at a time, we challenge ourselves enough to produce change, but then
that change keeps getting easier. Instead of feeling more restricted
every day, we build momentum.
Let’s develop new habits that
will help you to stay healthy and fit for the long haul.
In the past year alone, I’ve worked with hundreds of clients on creating behaviors to support sustainable weight loss. I tell you this so that you know I’ve put in
A LOT of time and energy into figuring out what works.
But of course not everybody can afford coaching. Nor does everybody need it. So I set out to figure out how I could
distill the core benefits of my coaching programs into a low cost format…
I looked at what weight loss habits resulted in the biggest
light bulb moments for people, what habits helped support other habits the best to help build momentum, analyzed what common
obstacles people encounter when trying to implement these habits, and filtered
through thousands of comments from group coaching members to get you insights
on how each habit can fit into and impact your life.
When the smoke cleared, I was left with an easy to follow
8-step process that guides you through the most important habits to practice
for successful weight loss and how to be the most successful as you practice
Here’s a sampling of what’s covered in this plan…
…and soooo much more.
Because overly-restrictive weight loss is the norm in our culture, I would be very
careful about attempting to lose weight without a proven methodology to
follow. When you’ve been practicing
strategies that don’t work for so long, it’s instinct to come up with new versions
of those strategies.
first, the approach in this program can be a real shock. For people that have tried and failed at the
weight loss game, this program is totally counter-intuitive. You might even think “there’s no way this can
work! That’s WAY too simple.”
if you take the clear direction of the program and you push through your
initial doubts, you’ll quickly get a hang of things. You’ll learn how to make these nutrition and
lifestyle strategies work for you, and with enough practice you’ll see the fat
start to come off. And most importantly,
because the habits will be personalized to work for YOUR life, you won’t be

getting your old weight back).
done all the hard work figuring out what to work on when, what obstacles to
look out for, and where to focus to get the most out of practicing each habit.
So now you don’t have to go it alone!
Previously, the only way to get a step-by-step system
from me for using habits for weight loss was to be in one of my coaching
programs, ranging from $147 - $347 per month.
But I’m super excited, because you can download your copy of
