Self-directed fat loss programs fail 98% of the time, but not because fat loss is so hard. It’s because most people make fat loss hard by trying to learn and do too much at once. It’s “all or nothing” at its worst, and it leads to a staggeringly high rate of failure.
Here at 180 Degrees, on the other hand, our clients enjoy an amazingly high success rate.
And that’s because we understand how successful change really happens. You see, successful, lasting change only happens by introducing new habits/behaviors slowly — and only when a client is truly confident they can do them.
If you don’t want to be part of the 98% that fail at fat loss, I strongly recommend you do the same thing we do.
So here’s a list of proven habits and behaviors that’ll help you lose fat. And what do you do with them? Simple: first, read through them and choose one habit to follow for the next 14 days or so. Pick whichever one seems easiest for you.
Once you choose, ask yourself the following question:
“On a scale of 1-10, how confident am I that I can do this habit every day for the next 14 days?”
If the answer is a 9 or a 10, you can get started on that habit.
However, if your answer is less than a 9, either choose a different habit or make your chosen habit easier until you’re really confident you can do it. For example, instead of exercising 30 minutes a day, could you do 15? How about 5? Give yourself permission to make it easier and easier on yourself until you’re at least 9/10 on the confidence scale. Then do it.
Remember, this is about truly being honest with yourself. Forget about what you think you should be able to do; what can you do, right now? In my experience, to be truly confident (which is what separates those who succeed from those who fail), people need to start with one, quick, easy habit each day.
Pick ONE of the following habits, and do it every day for 14 days.
1. Exercise for 30 minutes
2. Take fish oil and a multivitamin at breakfast
3. Drink at least 8 cups of water
4. Eat at least 4 one-cup servings of vegetables
5. Sleep at least 8 hours (including naps and night-time sleep)
6. During each meal, stop eating when 80% full
7. Twice during the workday, get up and do 5 minutes of muscle stretching
8. Eat 4 – 5 meals
9. Eat lean protein with each meal
10. Replace grains with greens during each meal
