Healthy eating and fitness is the way to go.

I’m shocked at what people get away with these days. People can make the most ridiculous unsubstantiated claims with little to no repercussions at all.
Well, tell me something. Why are you buying a diet that wasn’t designed for you? Did you know that you have a UNIQUE body type? Did you know that YOUR body has different needs than 66.6% of the rest of people? Did you know that YOUR body will react differently to food than AT LEAST 66.6% of the rest of people? Well why don’t you know that? Because nobody says it. Diet makers and so-called “gurus” sure as heck aren’t going to tell you. Why? That makes their job MUCH more difficult. If people knew how unique their individual needs are, they would start demanding more in-depth, personalized coaching instead of just a diet that was created to sell to the masses. If you’re a man who is 50 pounds overweight and wants to get ripped and have a beach body others are envious of…and you find out that you’re being sold the same diet as the new mother who just wants to lose the extra body fat gained during pregnancy, then you’d be pretty upset and hopefully keep that money in your wallet! On the flip-side take the new mother who wants to get that body that makes people think she’s lying about being a mother. She wants to get that booty firm and toned again. Now when she gets sold the same diet as the “fat man” and is told the diet will work for her she just “needs to eat smaller portions”, then it starts to make sense why the obesity rate is so out of control in America.
If the TRUTH got out that 93% of diets either FAIL TO GET RESULTS or FAIL TO SUSTAIN MEASURABLE RESULTS FOR LONGER THAN 6 MONTHS then there’s a lot of diet makers out there that would go BROKE! Instead what they’ll do is tell you that their diet is REVOLUTIONARY and is based on SCIENTIFIC BREAKTHROUGHS that will “BLOWTORCH” body fat or “TRANSFORM YOUR BODY” quicker than you can say “I quit, where’s my pizza?”. We’ve all heard those catch phrases and sales pitches. How long are you going to continue to fall for them?
I’m going to give you some FACTS that you should know and that should raise your level of expectation when it comes to getting fit. Mind you, when I say “get fit” I mean “GET FIT”. I don’t just mean losing a few pounds. I mean gaining lean muscle, shedding fat, and getting the body you’ve always dreamed of. PERIOD. And that IS NOT a catch phrase or sales pitch. There are thousands and thousands of diets out there that you can go on and possibly get some results. So you can hop around and hope for the best. You might find one that will help you fall into that 7% success rate. Oh, but then you have to worry about KEEPING those results once you stop the diet. Good luck with that.
1. There are 3 main BODY TYPES that people fall into. Some people even fall into more than one category.
2. The PROPORTIONS of proteins, carbohydrates and fats needed for each of these BODY TYPES is different.
3. The QUANTITIES of proteins, carbohydrates and fats needed WITHIN each of these body types varies by INDIVIDUAL.
4. The proportions AND quantities of these nutrients is different whether you are MALE or FEMALE
5. Your nutrition needs are DIFFERENT based on your AGE. At each level of advancement in age, there are certain nutrients that we lose that we must consciously focus on replenishing if you want to stay in OPTIMUM SHAPE.
6. Your nutrition needs are DIFFERENT depending on your LEVEL OF FITNESS including what EXERCISE ROUTINE you are currently on. Your body needs different fuel at different times to maximize results.
7. Your body needs DIFFERENT levels of fuel on days that you EXERCISE compared to days that you DO NOT.
8. ANYONE WHO TELLS YOU DIFFERENTLY THAN THESE FACTS IS LYING TO YOU!
Sound confusing? Well, to the untrained eye it can be. And we are so conditioned now to want a “miracle pill” or “easy fix”. But the truth is, weight loss is not easy. If it were, EVERYONE would be on the beach with six pack abs. Everyone would have well toned arms. Everyone….well, you get the picture.
So, no it’s not easy. But it CAN be SIMPLE. But you need your individual body’s needs seriously accounted for. Your grandma’s diet, your friend’s weight loss plan, your gym buddy’s “muscle gaining shakes” might not work for you. That’s just the facts. So you can keep falling for the advertisements and marketing schemes that tell you they’ve found the “breakthrough discovery that will melt away the fat and give you six pack abs”…or you can get real and realize the only weight you’ll be losing with those products is the weight you carry in your wallet.
If you don’t have a coach to walk you through every step of the way, then you need one. A coach that doesn’t just tell you “here, eat this”, but gives you an exact blueprint of what YOU need for YOUR body to excel. A coach that is willing to EDUCATE you so that you NEVER have to rely on another diet. This is the type of coaching and CUSTOMIZED nutrition I provide at FullyFunctionalFitness.com. Stop wasting time with cookie cutter plans and get real.
