Have you heard of it?
The magic pill that you can take at night at wake up with a perfect body?
That’s because it doesn’t exist.
Sure, there are tonnes of “fat burners” and teas and crap that people will try to sell you as a quick fix to a weight problem. But don’t you think if there was one pill or trick that worked that everyone would already have their perfect body?
Stop looking for the easy way!
There is no easy way.
The only way to see changes in your body is to actually put in the effort.
The reason that the majority of the population doesn’t look like fitness models is because it isn’t easy.
Furthermore, unless you are being paid to be that lean, there is no need to look like that model on the cover of a magazine.
It’s actually not even healthy to look like that year round, which is why most fitness models and competitors take an “off season”, to give their body a break from being that lean and their mind a break from that lifestyle.
You don’t have to be “cover ready” to show that you exercise and are healthy. Yes, you will have to put in hard work if you want to change your body, there is no denying that – however, know that if you want to make extreme changes in your physique that you will have to make extreme changes to your lifestyle.
I want you to imagine someone who’s body you admire, even if they are some model/ athlete who you know nothing about.
Now, imagine what you think their “typical” day looks like.
I bet you are imagining them eating vegetables and exercising right?
So, what would make you think that you can look like that without similar habits and lifestyle changes?
Eating healthy and exercising doesn’t have to be punishment, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be that hard – but it does have to be consistent. The goal should be to live a healthy and active lifestyle 80% of the time; if you miss a workout or eat a bad meal 20% of the time it is not going to have that huge of an impact on your body and your health. But please, please, stop paying money for detox juices and pills just because you think it’s a simple way to lose weight.
The nice thing about making a lifestyle change is that for best results you should start small. Start with one nutrition habit, or adding in a little bit of exercise. The slower you make changes to your lifestyle the more likely they are to become a habit, the less likely you are to get discouraged and give up, and the more likely you are to see maintainable changes in your body.
Haven’t you ever heard that anything worth having doesn’t come easy?
Yes, it may be hard at first – change usually is, but I promise you it will be worth it!
