7 Reasons You Won’t Follow the Fat Loss Checklist
Sep, 22, 2016
Yesterday, I sent an email discussing the Fat Loss Checklist. The checklist includes eating enough protein at each meal, working out consistently while increasing your overall daily activity. Today, I will share with you 7 of the main reasons why most people won’t follow the Fat Loss Checklist.
7 Reasons You Won’t Follow the Fat Loss Checklist:
1 – There are not enough details.
30 to 45 grams of protein. If you’re saying, “I don’t know what to eat for that,” you’re not alone. Or if you’re saying, “Strength circuit? What does that mean?,” again, you’re not alone. This is a double-edged sword for many, because it gives you options and variety to hit those goals. But if you need more direction, sometimes figuring out on your own is hard. If you come to the Free Fat Loss Nutrition Talk on Sunday, 9/25 at 11 am by emailing me at Info@HobokenFitness.com, more details will be given.
2 – They’re not sold it works*
“Isn’t that a lot of food?”
“Isn’t that a lot of protein?”
“I don’t want to build muscle.”
These are the arguments I will typically receive. These statements though are based on false premises that protein is meant to build muscle only. The fact is, when you’re in a caloric deficit, higher protein helps you to preserve muscle so you not only lose more fat exclusively, but keep your metabolism higher after you’ve lost the fat.
This then helps you to look “more toned.”
Yet many people give resistance to that much protein. Or they’re vegetarian (still easy to do). Vegans have other issues, but with high protein pastas and vegan protein powders, it’s not as hard as it used to be.
(*btw, everything I listed on the Fat Loss Checklist is backed up by good research).
3 – The omni-present, “I don’t have enough time,” excuse.
Everyone is busy. Some more than others…but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t follow anything on the checklist. If you can only work out once, but you can nail the eating goals, you’ll be well on your way.
The thing is, we never have enough time.
It’s one of the perks of life, actually. Our lack of time allows you to recognize what is important for you right now. Your health should be important to you right now (and later also), but sometimes it isn’t.
4 – They hate the recommendations.
They expect to literally have their cake, eat it and lose weight…forever. I’m sorry, but that’s not how it works. Can you have some cake? Absolutely. Can you have ALL the cake? No.
Is this the only way to get there? No. Do you have to follow the recommendations? No.
But, if this doesn’t work for you, then find something that does and…please share it with me.
All I know is that based on the research and anecdotal evidence, the fat loss checklist is one of the best ways to help you to build the habits that can help you lose fat for good!
5 – Some outside, mysterious force is standing in there way.
This is where the rest of the excuses come in:
I can’t because I have to cook for others…
I can’t because people at work bring…
I can’t because I have a slow metabolism…
I can’t because it’s too hard…(and when asked, what aspect is hard, they reply “the whole thing…”)
I can’t because I’m bad at self-control…
I can’t because I don’t like chicken…(here’s a hint, don’t eat chicken)
I can’t because I’m going on vacation…
I can’t because I just got back from vacation..
I can’t because the holidays…
I can’t because of the moon’s phase…
I can’t because…
You get my point. The externally blamed forces standing in the way of you taking action. Remember, YOU get to choose if those mysterious forces control you or if you have some freedom to make changes to your life. Again, these things are always present.
I’m not saying there aren’t better or worse times to get started, but rest assured, there’s never a “perfect time.”
And I’m not judging you. Use whatever excuse your heart desires, but at least be honest with yourself.
If it’s not a priority for you right now, that’s more than fine. Don’t’ beat yourself up over it. Just recognize that other things are taking precedent in your life right now.
Do what you can, with where you’re at. You don’t have to be perfect…just a little bit better.
6 – They try to figure it out all on their own
Have you ever googled something and gone down a rabbit-hole of information for things you didn’t necessarily need to know? Yeah, that’s what it’s like when trying to find fat loss information. You get a lot of misinformation, sprinkled with some good information. But overall, you just feel inundated with information, and have no clue what’s actually correct.
I can tell you that there are many ways to lose fat, but there are VERY FEW ways to keep it off. What you normally see and read are ways that worked once, for one person in a specific situation.
Knowing how to make sense of everything is a difference maker in getting results.
7 – They don’t have enough accountability
If an athlete wants to get better, they hire a coach. If a dancer or singer wants to improve, they find a coach. If someone wants to do better in business, they find a mentor. No matter what field you want to improve, getting help from someone more experienced than you is one of the best steps to ensure your success.
Fat Loss, working out and eating correctly are no different.
Being held accountable to someone and having others going through the same thing as you is paramount to most people’s long-term success.
The question then becomes, how can you actually follow the Fat Loss Checklist?
