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?
“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.
Tomorrow I will share with you Fat Loss Law #2. If you neglect this law it could really set you back on your fat loss journey!
By now you are probably aware that the term, eat clean, has nothing to do with washing your food and has everything to do with eating in a way that promotes fat loss.
While it may sound simple enough, it’s pretty challenging to stick with a clean eating plan. I suppose if it were easy then everyone would be lean and confident about their body.
So what is the secret to long-term, clean eating success?
In this episode of the “Fit Over 40 Challenge” show I outline and give you 4 secrets to doing just that.
You can listen below or download to your phone from iTunes.

In this episode of the “Fit Over 40 Challenge Show” I am excited to present to you my very first challenge for you. Today I introduce to you the “6 Days to a Stronger Core Challenge.”
I know that with technology and the cultural we live in we have become more prone to sit for long periods of time. Over the years I have had many clients complain to me about back pain and stiffness. One reason is their core is weak. Also, I have had many people come to me asking me how they can get lean and get that “6 pack” ab look. When I tell them it requires doing more than just a ton of ab exercise they are perplexed.
Having a strong core is a two part strategy and in this challenge you will learn what to do to get you started on a stronger and leaner mid section.
For the next six days I will present each day’s challenge to you through this podcast but if you would like to get the challenge in written form you can get the link ( in the comments section below) to have it emailed daily to you!
I am looking forward to hearing about the results you get from starting this challenge.

In this episode of the Fit Over 40 Challenge I acknowledge the frustrations that people have when it comes to their body and I talk about my weight loss journey struggle as a boy and adult however, I give 21 reasons and rewards that exercise can give you. My whole goal with this episode is to light a fire under you and get you to take action on becoming fit and healthy.
Below you will find the list of 21 reasons and rewards that you can print out and look at them to keep you motivated.
1. You’ll reset your body: Exercise has been described as a giant reset button. A good workout will block appetite swings, improve your mood and even help you sleep.
2. Your clothes will fit better: Consistent exercise will tone and tighten your body, causing your clothes to not only fit better but to also look nicer. Also exercise ensures that soon you’ll be trading your clothes in for smaller sizes.
3. You’ll be less stressed: You have enough stress in your life—it’s time for a break. A good workout invigorates your muscles, leaving you relaxed and less stressed.
4. You’ll have more energy: WebMD tallied research studies and concluded that 90% prove exercise increases energy levels in sedentary patients. Next time you feel fatigued, fight it with the most powerful tool available: exercise.
5. You’ll be stronger: Exercise improves muscle strength and endurance, two things that you use throughout each day. When you exercise consistently you’ll be pleasantly surprised when difficult tasks begin to seem easy.
6. You’ll be less likely to binge: Exercise has a powerful anti-binge effect on the body. This is due in part by an increase in sensitivity to leptin, a protein hormone, which has an appetite-taming effect.
7. You’ll burn calories: You know that excess body fat is made up of stored and unused calories. Fight back by burning loads of calories with fat-blasting workouts.
8. You’ll be more confident: Who doesn’t wish they walked and talked with more confidence? A consistent exercise program will do just that. As your body becomes more fit, watch as your confidence sky-rockets.
9. You’ll have fun: Believe it or not, exercise can be extremely enjoyable. Remember how fun it was to run around as a child? Tap into your inner child as you find a mode of exercise that gets you excited.
10. You’ll reduce your blood pressure: Exercise has been proven more effective than medication in reducing blood pressure to normal levels. A single workout has been shown to reduce blood pressure for the day and regular exercise reduces overall blood pressure in the long run.
11. You’ll lose the jiggles: Regular exercise tightens flabby arms, legs and waistlines. So wave goodbye to the jiggles with a solid exercise program.
12. You’ll increase insulin sensitivity: Researchers at Laval University in Quebec discovered that exercise improved insulin sensitivity dramatically. Peak after-meal insulin levels dropped by more than 20 percent after as little as 3 weeks of consistent exercise.
13. You’ll sleep better: Do you toss and turn for hours before falling asleep? Exercise is a powerful sleep aid. Your tired muscles encourage your body to quickly fall asleep so they can get their overnight repair work done.
14. You’ll lower your risk of heart disease: Regular exercise strengthens your heart and makes it more resilient against disease. A sedentary lifestyle is a major risk factor for heart disease, so rest assured that consistent exercise is your ally against disease.
15. You’ll feel great: Vigorous exercise releases natural endorphins (happy hormones) into your blood stream that dissolve pain and anxiety. You’ve probably heard of ‘runner’s high’, this can be achieved by any great workout.
16. You’ll lower your risk of diabetes: Studies show that exercising as little as half an hour each day can dramatically reduce your risk of diabetes. If you are at risk of diabetes, or already have diabetes, regular exercise is the most effective treatment for reversing the disease.
17. You’ll meet cool people: You could benefit from a group of new, energetic friends, right? Gyms, bootcamps, workout centers and even the jogging trail are all great places to connect with fun new friends.
18. You’ll improve your BMI: You know that maintaining a healthy BMI is key in disease prevention. Exercise is the best way to keep your BMI under control.
19. You’ll increase your endurance: Do you ever get out of breath when walking up stairs or through the mall? Regular exercise builds your endurance for everyday activities.
20. Your doctor will be impressed: How many times has your doctor given you the lecture about losing weight and exercising more? Exercise regularly and get your MD off your back!
21. You’ll look amazing: Are you happy with the shape and size of your body? Regular exercise works wonders on your physique. Within a few weeks you’ll see shape and tone in all the right places.
