50 Quick Lessons from 14 years of Weight Loss Coaching – Part 1

This list gets me so fired up, it reminds me of the truth and lessons I have learnt over my 14 years of coaching, mostly women but some men too along the way.

It began by coaching people for weight loss and in the beginning that’s what I thought it was all about.

If you want to lose weight you do it by doing xyz and now you know what to do it is easy. 

But I quickly realised that everyone already knew what to do, they just couldn’t find the motivation, time, money, focus, strength or whatever else got in the way to do it.

It set me on an amazing journey of learning, researching and discovery that have shaped the way I coach today, 14 years later.

The list is so simple, it always gives me the perspective I need and gets me fired up and motivated!

I hope it does the same for you!

Here are the first 25 on the list…

  1. Forget about weight loss, focus on optimal health.
  2. Gaining a pound or two doesn’t mean you have failed.
  3. Calories DO matter.
  4. But so do hormones.
  5. And gut health.
  6. And liver function.
  7. Losing weight won’t make you a happier person, it will make you a slimmer person, know the difference.
  8. Diets don’t work.
  9. Follow Mother Nature, she has your back.
  10. Blaming, complaining or wishing won’t burn the fat.
  11. Take ownership.
  12. Sugar & processed foods are highly addictive, think of them as drug foods.
  13. Comparing your progress to others is toxic and will slow your fat loss.
  14. Foods in packets are best avoided, even if the label says “healthy”.
  15. Tracking what you eat really helps but honesty is vital.
  16. It doesn’t have to be perfect all of the time.
  17. It’s pretty simple.
  18. Set yourself small goals and write them down EVERY day.
  19. Mindset is everything – be your own best friend.
  20. “Eat food, not much, mostly plants” Michael Pollan.
  21. Just because your friend is doing great on Keto/Paleo/Weight Watchers doesn’t mean you will, one size does not fit all.
  22. You are stronger than you think – both physically and mentally.
  23. Willpower is BS.
  24. Consistency is key.
  25. HOW you eat is important.
