5 top weight loss/health tips for 2012

Do you know that while exercise is crucial to losing weight and staying healthy, it’s definitely not the biggest piece to the puzzle.
Research shows that with exercise alone… you can expect to lose 1-2 lbs a month.. Sad, really.
So what does work? 

FOCUS ON NUTRITION AND EATING HABITS

With a program that combines both nutrition coaching and an exercise program, you can expect to lose 5x more fat in one month.

When it comes to losing fat and getting in shape, the majority of the focus is on nutrition and health habits.

Lesson 1 :  Find a Big Motivator 

To accomplish your goals , you must have motivation from inside, find a reason “WHY?!” a real purpose and a sense of why getting in shape is important to you .

Lesson 2:  Do One Small Thing Every Day

Point here is, if it matters to you – you  will have focus and consistency.

But – only choose one thing to focus on at a time!  Most people try and change to much at once.  That has been proven to not change anything at all. With more likelihood of accomplishing changes, they will stay with you.  And don’t worry – once you master one – you can move to the next.

Lesson 3: Focus on Actions

It’s hard to control outcomes, but you can control your actions that lead to the outcomes.

Rather than focusing on losing 30lbs and hanging your confidence on that scale… Focus on your actions, the small daily things that you do consistently that builds your health.

Actions practiced daily build up over time and yield amazing results!

Lesson 4: With Knowledge Comes Power.

Stay informed on best nutrition choices for your health and goals.  Food changes everything.  Did you know that some elements in your diet actually steal from the good nutrients you are putting in?  What really are anti-oxidants?  What should you look for on your protein source labels?  Want to look younger and decrease risk of alzheimers and cancer?  Food affects how we think, move and feel.  What are you missing out on?

Lesson 5: Keep Accountable and Supported

People who have support from others and check in points achieve more results and quicker, than if they went at it alone.  With support and a check ins you can connect with people and stay on track when you’re excited, confused or wondering what to do next.
