Why do people (and possibly you) follow weight loss fads, short cuts, gimmicks, and other wizardry? While I leave you to ponder that question, the sad truth is the majority of dieters finish up heavier than when they started, and repeatedly losing and gaining weight is linked to heart disease and stroke. Diets do not lead to sustained weight loss or health benefits for the majority, and so most people would be better off never going on a diet in the first place due to the stress and disappointment experienced.
Long term weight maintenance remains a very difficult task indeed. Healthy weight loss is clinically defined as losing only 5-10% body weight, but weight is gradually regained in the vast majority of people. Previous research has shown 95% of people regain lost weight and recent research has shown that ~20% of overweight individuals are successful at long-term weight loss when defined as losing up to 10% of initial body weight and maintaining the loss for one year (unfortunately not great). This is because weight loss maintenance is hindered by complex interactions of environmental, biological, and cognitive factors controlling weight regain. Anyone who thinks sustaining a healthy or fit looking body weight/shape is simply a matter of exercising more and eating less are delusional and ignorant to the complexities.
This is why Weight Loss SOS is much more than a diet. It is a holistic and supportive life-style solution. It is a life-style modification-based holistic approach with the help of a life-style coach and a road map. Weight Loss SOS is not about telling you what to do, but about guiding you down a path of improving your spectrum of eating, exercising more effectively, and changing behavioural and physical habits. This means individual SUPPORT to you from this programme. It is systematic, showing you how to handle your training, eating, thinking, behaviour, and any situation in your life-style more effectively so you lose the fat for good – through the use of diet analysis, exercise programmes, and life-style training plans.
Weight Loss SOS will help you raise your achievement bar from your current abilities to a new level you have wanted to sustain. Your life-style plan moves you forward week after week, month after month, in a more constructive way than you have ever done on your own. When we talk of life-style, we mean the way that you live – typical, familiar and unique to you. Your life-style encompasses your entire existence from everything you say, think and do, to how you move, exercise, eat and sleep. In essence, your life-style choices are responsible for your level of achievements.
The plan involves identifying and developing seven key skills with multiple life-style strategies, plus health, fitness and nutrition science to help you change your behaviours so that any situation you find yourself in can become a weight-losing experience for you. The order and timing of these strategies, including how you train and eat, will be individual to you.
This is what to expect when you do it:
- You are motivated and supported daily to achieve already established goals, follow the plan laid out for you
- You follow specific and easy to understand diet, exercise and lifestyle strategies and actions catered to your needs, leading to your specific targets
- You will follow projected visions of performance before moving to the next step
- You will know when to eat, what to eat, and how much to eat
- You will follow personalised strategies to change your behaviour instantly; this turns weight-gaining situations into weight-losing situations
- You will save yourself frustration, time, money, and effort by always improving – moving forward
Will power alone will not help you succeed. Most clients regard willpower as their ability to apply effort and determination to a given task. However, will power alone is not sufficient for effective action. Just being more determined and working harder can end up making this more difficult. Although determination is necessary, without the necessary behavioural skills it can be misdirected.
Imagine living your life while spending more time getting and being slimmer. Imagine only staying slim, fit, and healthy and never relapsing. Nutrition, exercise, and new ways to think and do things all play a crucial role in your health and are an integral part of helping you to maximise your every-day performance. The truth is that maintaining a healthy weight is a multi-factorial problem and thus harder than people are led to believe because weight loss marketing is set up to make money out of you failing. The good news is that a multi-factorial problem needs you to use a holistic solution like this system, therefore enabling you to dramatically increase your chances of succeeding.
It will be in your best interests to lose fat in a healthy manner, have longevity of life, and look great while reducing disease. It’s time to let go of unsustainable and dramatic weight loss. Anyone can lose weight quickly; a heroin diet would have you lose lots of weight, but obviously you would not be healthy and strong! The key point being made here is you want to lose fat progressively and incrementally, methodically, and in a safe and sustainable course. To change your body fat percentage is to change you as a whole being, and this programme will show you how to do this often scary personal change.
As you sustain weight loss you will dramatically reduce your chances of acquiring life-style-related illnesses and diseases. Non-communicable (chronic) diseases include obesity, cardiovascular diseases like arteriosclerosis, hypertension, stroke and heart attacks, cancer, type 2 diabetes, chronic respiratory diseases, cirrhosis, and Alzheimer’s disease. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), life-style diseases account for 63% of all deaths and are largely preventable; and obesity is the second leading cause of cancer after smoking. If you already have a life-style disease, you can reduce the severity and in some cases eliminate the condition by using a life-style programme as this one.
So there you go. You should give this a shot. After all, what have you got to gain?
