The 21 Laws of Fat Loss is a compilation of the top 21 rules that will govern your results. This list is not conclusive and is not presented in any particular order. It is my goal to provide you these 21 laws over the next 21 days.
The Laws presented to you are the very same habits and actions that are responsible for helping thousands of others, just like you, completely revamp their bodies and change their lives.
What you will notice most, when reading through the 21 Laws Of Fat Loss is that much of the advice counters what you’ve always believed.
The purpose of this book was never to debunk myths and beliefs… The purpose is to just give it to you straight, without any fluff.
You have to realize that the fitness industry is enormous and growing month by month. And because people are spending money trying to improve their health and fitness, there are a lot of ‘charlatans and snake oil salesmen’ that use pseudoscience and misinformation to sell you their products and programs.
It’s my goal to give you the straight answers. Not my opinion. Not some made up science. But real facts as we know them today. Of course as time passes and science advances, it’s possible that the Laws Of Fat Loss may need changing to. But for now, each day, for the next 21 days, I will post a law that will get you the results you want… all you have to do is follow them.
Fat Loss Law #1 You Must Have Crystal Clear Goals
The most common reason for people not reaching their desired destination is… they don’t really know where they’re going.
Seems kinda obvious right?
The truth is, if you’ve been unsuccessful at attaining and sustaining your goals, it’s because you’ve probably never actually set clear, powerful and meaningful goals.
“But isn’t wanting to lose weight a goal?”
Kinda, but not really…
Imagine you wanted to leave your house and go visit a friend in the next town and all you had was the name of the street they lived on. No house number. No cross streets. No point of reference. No signs knowing if you went too far.
You’d never get there right? You may come close, by accident. But arrive at your desired location; nope.
This is exactly what happens if you don’t set clear goals.
What does a clear goal look like?
Here’s an example of a clear goal:
I want to be a size 6 and fit into my favorite jeans and feel comfortable and confident wearing them by February 1st, 2017.
You see how specific and measurable it needs to be? If this was one of your goals, you could try them on at the end of each week and see your progress.
Try setting your own SMART goals. Remember the acronym SMART stands for:
One more thing I want to add to this is really focus on the time frame. Around last year (early 2016) I came across a book called, “The 12 Week Year,” which really changed how I approach goal setting. Instead of saying,” I want to lose 10 lbs and weigh ___ by Dec 31st (insert end of year) I know focus my goal setting in a 12 week or 90 day time period.
Once you have your goals share them with me and others so we can help keep you accountable. You can do that by doing our group www.allabouthealthandfitness.com.
