It’s not about willpower…

 

Many people believe that it takes an incredible amount of willpower to lose weight. The truth is, “it’s not that some people have willpower and some don’t.

It’s that some people are ready to change and others are not.” –Heraclitus (540 BC – 480 BC)

The particular change required is really about acquiring the skills you need to reach and maintain your FEEL GREAT WEIGHT. The notion that weight loss can be fueled by willpower alone is at best wishful thinking, and at worst downright ridiculous. Yes, of course, will is required. Yes, of course, we need a heaping helping of personal responsibility. But before we can take responsibility, we must be empowered with the necessary attitude, abilities and skills. After all, mountaineers don’t scale Everest just because they want to; they need skills.

Willpower may get all the glory; but in the absence of skill power, it simply may not be possible to find, fashion, pave, and/or follow the path to better Fitness & NEWtrition. Here are some strategies to help you shift your thinking…

Don’t ‘just do it’ After experiencing any type of weight loss victory many people reach what is commonly called a “plateau.” Why, after practicing every tip and trick they can find for a few months does this happen? It happens because practice does not always make perfect; sometimes; practice makes permanent. If you stop challenging themselves to improve, you’ll become complacent. Continued improvement beyond any initial weight loss takes motivation, time and skill; and many people lack all three. What is your Weight Loss IQ?

The key: Deliberate practice

Without challenge, there will be no change. -unknown

Deliberate practice’ is the name for the changes that will most effectively allow you to reach and maintain your FEEL GREAT WEIGHT. Deliberate practice is characterized by specific goals, accurate feedback, orderly progression, and conditions that permit progress.

 

Specific goals Because of all the hype surrounding weight loss, most people need help pinpointing exactly what they want to improve and how they can improve it. Once their heads are clear, they need help making the specific Fitness & NEWtrition improvements. Get Fit, Eat Smart breaks goals into small steps that you can achieve within a short time frame; so that you won’t become discouraged.

 

Swift, specific and accurate feedback Swift, specific and accurate feedback is essential to continued weight loss; and it is not easy to get in an industry that promotes quick fixes. In the modern world, living healthy is a steep uphill climb; skills are required. To boost your Weight Loss IQ, Get Fit, Eat Smart teaches 25 relevant skills designed to get you over or around every weight loss challenge. There are skills related to shopping, snacking, cooking, time management and fitting exercise into a crammed daily routine. We believe that there is no reason to limit your skills to any one of these; the more skills acquired, the better prepared you are for any eventuality.

 

How can you get the feedback you need to progress? One traditional source of feedback is a coach. A Get Fit, Eat Smart Fitness & NEWtrition Educator is an experienced health-conscious individual who’s spent years studying the human body – in theory and practice. For clients seeking help, it is hugely empowering to hear from a former “heavy weight” who can say, ‘I’ve been there before and know what you’re feeling… here’s what worked for me.’ Read more about… Peacock or Taylor

Our systems provide a consistent framework for determining and implementing the most appropriate assessments, Fitness & NEWtrition programs, progressions and regressions based on your available time, capacity and outside stressors; such as work, family and travel.

Feel Great Weight Range

Posted: June 29, 2014 in Uncategorized

What Is Your Feel Great Weight?

HINT: It’s not what you weighed in high school. Rather, it’s that happy, healthy, sane weight range that you can actually maintain.

dove more

Reaching and Maintaining your Feel Great Weight is your start to building a stronger body and a healthier you! It can help you avoid heart problems, diabetes, arthritis, sleep apnea, and even some cancers.

If you’re above your Feel Great Weight range, losing weight could decrease your risk for many serious health problems, and can also contribute to higher energy and other day-to-day benefits.
However, if you’ve gained several pounds within this broad range as an adult, you may notice that you feel less energetic or could be experiencing other health issues. If so, Get Fit, Eat Smart can help you develop the attitude, abilities and skills you need to return to your Feel Great Weight— and stay there.

You’ll also be able to take into account other important factors such as BMI, Body Fat % and your family’s health history.

  • BMI or body mass index, tells you how heavy you are for your height. BMI is one way doctors look at how healthy you are. It’s a clue to your risk for weight-related health problems.
  • Body Fat %- We often get very focused on having the scale display a particular number; without realizing that when we hit that number, our bodies may not look how we’d envisioned they would. If you’re within your Feel Great Weight but your body does not look toned, then your Body Fat % is to blame. Get Fit, Eat Smart Fitness & NEWtrition Prescriptions help you lose body fat while sculpting lean, sexy muscle; revealing the toned physique you envisioned when you began your journey.

Q:

What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me as a Fitness & NEWtrition client?

A:

Being a motivated, high-achiever myself, I’ve found that I am the ideal problem solver for other motivated, high-achievers who struggle with their weight. We have the same basic core beliefs that we apply to every aspect of our lives; including Fitness & NEWtrition

  • Success is your personal responsibility

Motivated, high-achievers tend to believe that initiative, effort, and persistence are key determinants of success.Success

  • Demanding tasks are opportunities

Achievement motivated individuals tend to see demanding tasks where success is uncertain as ‘challenges’ or ‘opportunities’.

  • Achievement striving is enjoyable

Motivated, high-achievers associate effort, dedication, concentration, commitment and involvement with demanding tasks. They see perseverance in the face of setbacks and obstacles fuel their motivation to keep going.

  • Achievement striving is valuable

Motivated, high-achievers value hard work in and of itself.

  • Skills can be improved

Motivated, high-achievers have a strong belief that they can improve their performance in demanding tasks with practice, training, coaching, and dedication.

  • Persistence works

Motivated, high-achievers are inclined to believe that continued effort and commitment will overcome initial obstacles or failures.

 

With these core beliefs in mind, we crafted every Get Fit, Eat Smart (GFES) Fitness & NEWtrition Prescription to help motivated, high-achievers who struggle with their weight, the opportunity to develop the attitude, abilities and skills they need to finally Reach & Maintain their Feel Great Weight!

It will be challenging, but you will have the full support of a GFES Educator as you make the jump from “fruitless dieting and exercising” to a “fresh, new lifestyle.” You’ll zero in on the keys to a lifestyle transition that fixes the problem once and for all – motivation, healthy habits, and confidence. When these are normal parts of your everyday life, you may never need to “start over” again.
