When I was traveling recently on my holiday break, when people asked me what I do, I told them that I make people’s lives happier by helping them lose weight and be healthier.
Most people with whom I talked had a point of view about weight loss...
and some others wanted advice. Some told me that Zumba, running, shakes, or diets are effective for weight loss. But what really got my attention was that these people were overweight and out of shape. If all those great ideas really worked, why weren’t these people really doing them? Go figure.
A paradigm is a belief about what the world is like. You can tell what people believe by watching what they do, because they always behave consistently with their deeply held belief. It is not necessarily what they say they believe, but what they really believe that counts.
While is true that many of the methods people mentioned work to lose weight...
What is important is to take into consideration that people need to be consistent and do them regularly.
“Weight loss can be simple,” I explained to some of my fellow travelers. “But I don’t recommend focusing merely on weight loss. My clients and I get healthy results and toned bodies using varied routines and techniques. None of the methods people list works alone.
I could be wrong, but it seems to me that people don’t want to lose weight just for the sake of losing weight since they often end up with a sloppy body when they are only focused on the scale. The reality is that they want to look their best and hopefully amazing. They want legs and arms toned, flat abs, a nice straight back, and overall an attractive body. This is where my being an expert comes in. I give my clients all the techniques, routines, motivation, and encouragement they need to get the results that they are looking for.
No one I had a conversation with on my trip mentioned weight lifting as being important for weight loss, but a large part of my fitness plan is weight lifting for people of all ages and body types. It surprises me that many people are not aware of the importance of weight lifting.
It lifts the gluts, tones arms and legs, makes flat abs, and makes the waist look smaller and over all shapes the body and increase the metabolic rate among other benefits. It also prevents bone loss in older men and women, which helps them stay agile and fit.
So I recommend getting a weight lifting plan incorporated into your weight loss program. You will notice the difference after two weeks. But don’t forget to be consistent. Persistence pays off.
