Free Fat-Loss Coaching Round 1 Update

Free Fat-Loss Coaching Round 1 Update

It’s been 3 months since I offered my first free fat-loss coaching. I sent a message to people on Facebook & Twitter and got 3 replies… Here are the Results Client 1: Dropped out after 1 week. The first habit (taking pictures of food and drink) was too stressful. Client 2: No changes. Loved having me as her coach & Fat Loss 101, but losing weight was more of a passive wish than an active pursuit. Client 3: Lost 20lbs, 3 inches off waist & hips & is continuing coaching for a monthly fee. He is at his lowest weight in over 10 years, feeling better than ever and is looking forward to losing another 20 lbs. I’m very happy with the results because I could have easily had no successes with such a small number of volunteers. The people that know me think I’m a monster, but they don’t realize that the changes I’ve made over the past 7 years took, well, 7 years of small, daily improvements. That adds up and if I had the knowledge back then that I have now, I could have been here in 1-2 years instead of 7. The client who lost the most weight was both motivated and self-reliant knowing that his actions are what determine his results. My coaching was valuable because I was able to answer his questions as they arose, show him how to setup a sustainable progression, and keep him balanced. Here’s what he had to say:   I just want to say that our relationship has been very beneficial for me. It helped me turn things...
Sleep Yourself Thin

Sleep Yourself Thin

Click below to listen to our podcast episode on The Importance of Sleep: Podcast   A History of Sleep Neglect In high school, I regularly slept 3-4 hours a night and got my additional sleep during classes at school. In college, I pulled all-nighters about once every other week, often pulling 2-3 per week around midterms and finals. I frequently went to bed when the sun was coming up, and started to play when the sun went down… and I loved it! Then, I started playing with polyphasic sleep… everything from bi-phasic sleep to the uberman schedule (20 minute naps only)… and I did the uberman longer than most people… about 4 months. But I was fat, sick, and stupid. The reasons I neglected sleep for so much of my life were due to ignorance and inexperience. I simply didn’t know how important sleep was, or how much better I would feel if I got more of it. After reading about the dramatic differences sleep makes in fat-loss, recovery, mood, stress, productivity and general well-being – I decided to give it a shot. What a world of difference! Maybe you’re a lot smarter than I am and KNOW how important sleep is, but it’s just hard to make time for. Maybe you’re as ignorant as I was and just need a bit more convincing. Regardless, if you’re looking for more reasons to justify your sleep, you’re in luck because that’s exactly what I’m about to share. Instead of addressing the millions of excuses people can come up with for not getting more sleep, I’ll be covering a few reasons why...
Measuring Fat-Loss Progress the Easy Way

Measuring Fat-Loss Progress the Easy Way

  The Problem of Measuring Progress Fat-loss tracking by most people is usually done one of two ways: Track Everything Track Nothing And there are down-sides to both. Tracking everything is great if you’re an OCD bodybuilder… it helps keep your edge on the competition. But for most of us, it takes too much time for too little reward. So if we’re not taking 11-site caliper measurements and the circumference of every muscle measurable, what do most people end up doing?…. They Track Nothing. (or just 1 variable e.g. weight) And the downside to tracking nothing is that you don’t know if you’re progressing. For example… Have you ever thought, “I should be making progress, but the scale won’t budge!?! WTF?!” Read-on to learn why this may not be a bad thing…   There’s An Easy Fix If measuring weight isn’t enough, but we want to avoid being OCD, what’s good enough? Measure Weight Measure Your Waist Measure Your Hips For 99% of those looking to lose fat, it’s about getting a smaller belly and not the fat pants, so let’s measure the variables that count so we can improve them. Don’t forget; if you measure something, you’re more likely to improve it. Let’s look at how to interpret the results.   Interpreting Your Results First off: Give yourself 2-3 weeks to evaluate the results of any new changes Be consistent with your measurements (same day, time, etc. e.g. Monday, first thing in the morning, assuming no boozing on Sunday night) Other than the new changes, try to keep your diet & exercise consistent (don’t want to start jogging and...

No Cherry Picking Allowed!

Quite rightly there has been quite a bit of awe as regards Nick’s transformation; obviously people are demanding to know how he did it, which is quite understandable.     In the last couple of months we’ve discussed Nick’s progress at length on most episodes of the Mighty Cast but specifically the monsterous 3 hour epic which was The Mighty Power of Habit: Ep.20 Podcast   What I want to do here though is minimise the inevitable cherry picking which many will do. I can see it now, I’ll take the 3-4000 calorie pig out, but I won’t bother with the training! and 3 months later we receive an email saying “your system sucks!” To be honest it wouldn’t surprise me.   As far as training is concerned Nick has followed many of the programmes we promote here –https://getmightynow.com/products.html – both fat loss and especially strengthening programmes. Because he has trained so hard for so many years Nick started his fat loss odyssey from a very muscular starting position. This means that when Nick talks about his somewhat unusual nutritional practices on the Mighty Cast it doesn’t mean that you can do the same.   After training Nick has spoken about putting away 3-4’000 calories of not the best food; now he needs to feed his body after training and he has found that this approach helps him stay a) muscular b) he enjoys it and c) he blood lipid profiles are better than ever. This means that this single aspect of his regime is fine for him but probably not for you.   If you Deadlift 250kg then PERHAPS you can have a post training...
