Fat Loss Tip #7 – Start IMMEDIATELY


(Typical conversation with SELF) I’m just starting another freakin diet today. So..I’m serious this time.. No…REEEEALLY I AM!

Okay Okay…it’s just another go at the life long battle of misery. I go through stages where I pretty much QUIT and end up GAINING WEIGHT! But I’m SOOO serious this time. I’m starting MONDAY! 🙂

DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR? Yes we’ve all used the Monday excuse.

We act as if there’s a law that says all diets must start on a Monday?  Well..I’ve started diets on about 731 Mondays already.  So Mondays are out for me.  I kicked the“I’ll start my diet Monday” habit to the curb a longggggg time ago when I realized that CHANGE is based on your maturity level.

Immature eating habits is what got most of us in the state of obesity that we are fighting with right now.  And immaturity….lack of motivation/discipline is what makes you keep putting it off until tomorrow

Even if you’ve spent the day eating junk and fast food, there’s no rule that says you need to wait.  So WHAT you screwed up your diet, we’ve all done that.  Now what? Get back in the race….Stick with the plan….. Switch back into fat burning mode NOW….fight to the very end and DON’T YOU DARE GIVE UP!

Kick the habit…… Newsflash, real change doesn’t start Monday, it starts NOW

Fat Loss Tip #11 – How To Stay Focused / Motivated

How To Stay Focused / Motivated on the Weight Loss Road to Success

Somebody asked me to give them tips on things I do to stay focused & motivated. Read on, this was my biggest tip I gave her that might help you too….

I remember a time in my life where my closet was like a department store. I shopped ALL THE TIME, had a ton of clothes and a wide variety of sizes in my closet. Some to big, some to little but at some point of the year they all fit depending on the season. LOL

Before Paleo my weight fluctuated so much from Summer sizes 16/18 to Winter sizes 20/22 and no that’s not because I would wear layers or sweaters…… 🙂

Funny but it never dawned on me that in order to continue to move forward, I needed to stop expecting to be able to reach back or buy new clothes that where my old familiar winter sizes…….

It never dawned on me that reaching back for my familiar winter clothes and expecting them to fit meant that I would have to GAIN my winter weight back. Talk about being in a comma……..

Once I went Paleo and became committed to it the weight started falling off but I still kept the (fat) clothes in the closet just in case I needed them. (Sometimes its hard to come out of a comma)

I recall one day standing in the closet telling a friend “I have absolutely NOTHING TO WEAR” everything was to big. Even my to little stuff was to big……

I was forced to bag it all up and shop for my current size. (One eye open…. Still not completely out of the comma)

I ended up with 10 bags of clothes in my living room that where too big and a huge EMPTY closet with a couple a pair of leggings and tops to mix/match to hold me over to the next shopping trip.

I decide to challenge myself and be a blessing to someone else. I gave all 10 bags of clothes away (my crutch) and kept an empty bag in my closet for storing potential clothes that would soon be to big.

I turned my expectations from moving/thinking backwards to moving forward. (Finally delivered from the comatose state I was in)

So my point today is you can’t expect to get to the top of the mountain if you keep allowing yourself to have a set back.

Position yourself where you have no choice but to move forward. Right now at this very moment I challenge you to open your closet and take out ALL of your clothes that are too big. Yes ALL of them……yep the cute stuff too and put them in a bag.

Now what you do with that bag is up to you just REMOVE it from your house. If you cleaned out your pantry to eat Paleo then you merely set yourself up for potential weight loss……

Take the next step by setting your expectations on HIGH and clean out your closet and stop shopping for the old familiar or your current sizes. As a matter of fact don’t buy another piece of clothing until you loose 15-20lbs…

When you continue to repeat old patterns you only set yourself up for failure…….

Eating right & exercising to loose weight is just a small piece of the puzzle.
You must realize that this is a BEHAVIORAL challenge and you are trying to correct a lifetime of dysfunctional patterns and bad food choices……….

So Stay Focused, Position Yourself for a Blessing & Believe That You Can Do It. SEE YOU AT THE TOP!

How to Eat for Mesomorph Body Type….Naturally Muscular

Mesomorphs can lose and gain weight easily, are able to build muscle quickly and usually boast an upright posture. This body type tends to have a long torso and short limbs. Women with a mesomorph body type are strong and athletic.

Most sports stars are mesomorphs and Anna Kournikova is a great example of a female mesomorph. Other female mesomorphs include, Angela Bassett, Demi Moore, Sarah Jessica Parker and Tina Turner. Mesomorphs will have excelled at sports while at school and most likely continue to be active as an adult. Mesomorphs are bursting with energy and particularly excel in explosive sports – that is sports calling for power and speed. The reason for this talent lies in the type of muscle mesomorphs possess.

Mesomorphs have a higher percentage of fast-twitch fibers and will gain muscle mass more quickly than any other body type. This means that mesomorphic women often end up bigger and bulkier than when they started exercising. In other words, instead of their goal of losing inches and becoming smaller, they gain inches and become larger.

If you find, that you haven’t become smaller, but grown bigger since you started exercising, you most likely have been exercising wrong for your body type. If you are a mesomorph who wants to lose weight and reduce inches, you should focus on fat loss through diet and exercises that are right for their body type.

Mesomorph Eating Plan: Basic Paleo Diet with no carb restrictions.

Basically your genetic makeup suits bodybuilding very well and all you have to do is design a good workout program and diet plan to follow closely. Remember just because you’re a Mesomorph doesn’t mean you should pig out or you probably will gain fat because your not naturally skinny like an Ectomorph.

It also means you can slack off because you believe you can build lots of muscle just by lifting on and off. And it doesn’t mean that you can build muscle like nothing, it still takes time like everything.

If you’re a mesomorph needing to loose weight follow the 80/20 rule or 5 days on & 2 days off. This is NOT a calorie counting plan, this is how you were designed to eat to make sure your metabolism stays on point.

How to Eat For Endomorph Body Type

Endomorphs are the body type that perhaps are most likely to feel they drew the short straw. Endomorphs naturally tend to have fuller figure, curvy or obese and struggle to keep their body fat percentage in check. The most difficult challenge for endomorphs is perhaps to find out that they are in fact an endomorph. Why? Once you know you are endomorph, you know that you were born this way. And come to the realization that you are likely to gain weight very easily.

You have the type of metabolism that is not forgiving. However, this doesn’t mean you are destined to be overweight or even obese. Endomorphs have to make a conscious, concerted effort to do the things your body should be doing for you automatically. If your body isn’t instinctively telling you to move more, you have to make sure that exercise is part of your daily routine. If your metabolism is sluggish, you need to eat the right foods that will fire up your metabolism. To be precise, you need to eat right and exercise for your body type

Endomorph Eating Plan: High fat, low carb Paleo Diet

In order to loose weight/fat effortlessly endomorphs HAVE to eat more fat than any other body type (avocado, coconut oil, kerry gold butter, olive oil etc) not only cook with these fats, also eat a serving of fat with a meal.

Healthy fats push out unwanted body fat…….

Also Endomorphs need to ONLY eat very LITTLE carbs (fruit, potato, wine etc) to effectively go from a sugar burner to a fat burner.

To achieve great results follow the 80/20 rule or 5 days on & 2 days off. This is NOT a calorie counting plan, this is how you were designed to eat to make sure your metabolism stays on point.
