On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing some weight loss motivation, including 2 of the biggest keys to weight loss and Living Lean.
Based on the positive response from part 1 of my 3 part video interview series, I know you’re going to love part 2.
If you missed the first episode, I shared my journey to building self-confidence through fitness.
I shared the story of how before I got into fitness, I was never comfortable in my own body.
The reason wasn’t because I was fat, it was because I had a really low self image.
So this is the follow up to that video.
In this part 2 interview, I talk about:
First you have to identify the problem.
So dig deep and answer the following questions:
For example, I hear the following all the time from people who work in a corporate job.
“I’m hungry at 3pm, but the only food that is available in my office is a vending machine filled with candy.”
Based on this example, you have to first identify the problem.
Problem: You don’t have healthy food options at the office.
Now that we’ve identified the problem, what is the solution?
With that said, now I want you to think about your goals, then ask yourself the following.
Are your daily habits taking you closer to your goals, or are they taking you further away, from your goals?
Every single decision you make, either takes you closer too or further away from your ultimate goal.
For example, those fast food french fries are taking you further away from your goal.
However, that healthy and delicious salad is taking you closer to your goal.
Every decision you make has a dramatic impact on your long term goals.
The biggest key to weight loss is optimizing your body’s hormones and metabolism.
A few of the main hormones that play a role in Living Lean include:
All of these hormones are positively or negatively affected by the foods you eat and the amount of exercise you are doing.
Optimizing your hormones is the key to your weight loss success.
What would I like for people to know about me that they don’t see on camera?
Well first of all, I am really just a normal person.
I grew up in a small town of just over 1,000 people, so I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth.
My parents were both hard working teachers so they had a tremendous influence on my life.
I’m so grateful to them for teaching me the value of hard work and the value of a dollar.
And like most kids, I never tell them enough how much i appreciate them.
So mom and dad, I appreciate and love you.
I also want to point out that, just because I’m in front of a camera and you’re watching me on YouTube, or you’re using my programs, you’ve read my books, or you’ve seen me speak, I’m no different than you.
My results simply come from doing different things.
I am not smart than you and I don’t have special talents that you don’t have.
For example, I like to eat the occasional pizza, I miss the odd workout, and I also like to go out and have a few drinks with my friends at the club.
However, I’ve just surrounded myself with ideas and resources that have allowed me to achieve the things I’ve done in life.
I also live life without the extremes that some fitness personalities do.
I’m not taking anything away from them, as I have mad respect for what they do.
But for me, fitness is more about living a healthy lifestyle and finding a balance, rather than being the most ripped fitness personality, with an on and off-season.
I prefer to maintain a healthy lifestyle that allows me to maintain abs 365 days a year, and still go out and live life.
I also want people to know that I really am living my message.
Everything I talk about on Live Lean TV, I employ into my own life.
I’m continually learning and testing new ideas on my body, and when they work, I teach them to you.
I live it first, then teach it, if it works.
