Jumping From Diet To Diet

Just had a lady on the phone talking about how the more she learnt the more confused she was becoming.

She had been jumping from programme to programme for years and years.

Seeing results initially, then moving on to something new when the results stopped or slowed down

She has done it all:

-Weight Watchers

-Slimming World

-Body for life

-Lighter life



Now she feels she doesn’t know what to do for the best.

She has had enough and wants to clear up the confusion.

This is very common.

Some people call it “paralysis by analysis”.

Weight loss and fitness stuff can become overwhelming.

There is so much information out there.

It’s hard to know what is useful and what is useless.

My job is to make things easier, not more complicated.

Basically all you need to do is

-The COTC Diet (TM ;-)). (cut out the crap)

-Drink more water

-Eat tasty high density nutrition foods

-Move and sweat more

-Rest more

-Take a few key supplements.

They are the basics things that everyone’s body will thank them for doing

Just because they are the basics does not mean they are easy to sort out.

But it’s where the real results are…in the so called boring and basic things.

People who can grind out these things will be the ones who get all the rewards.

These people have patience, a key factor in success in life.

If you can’t get the basics right or don’t have the patience to stick to something for more than a few weeks you’re seriously screwed.

You will destroy your chances because you are making it harder than it needs to be.

Loads of my lovely ladies over the years have lost the same stone or two dozens and dozens of times. That’s crazy.

Without patience and consistency, you will struggle to look and feel your best.

Getting the basics in place takes time.

Making good choices on the whole is all in the head.

Most people don’t need a special diet or exercise programme to start.

Most people need to get the basics right on a consistent basis before taking on anything more complicated.

PS – keep an eye out tomorrow for a very emotional email which I cried like a baby when I wrote.

Seriously laying it all on the line, look out.
