Jillian Micheal's says:
Swear off fad diets
"You know the kind, says Jillian: "Everyone's like: 'Give up carbs!' 'Give up fat!' 'Wait, no, now I'm taking pills!' None of them are manageable long-term—and they wreak havoc with your metabolism! Because you're either starving yourself or you're cutting out a major food group. Then you go back into weight-gain mode, but it's even worse, because your body has adjusted to all that crazy fad crap." -- We've all seen my similar rants on the topic.
Tony Horton says:
"When it comes to losing weight or exercising, it's important to check in with yourself and evaluate your goals. "It's all about purpose, purpose, purpose," Horton says. "If your goals are focused on how you look and how other people perceive you, chances are you're going to fail. It might work temporarily, but then you'll go back to where you were, and you'll need a new purpose.
Be honest with yourself: Are you trying to lose weight for a family wedding coming up in two weeks? You may be able to lose five pounds fast, but you might not be able to keep it off permanently. On the other hand, if you're trying to get fit for the long haul, it'll be much easier to make gradual lifestyle changes that will allow you to realize your goals—for good."
Gunnar Peterson says:
"I am a big believer in taking responsibility for your actions. I tell my kids every day to "own it"—"it" being whatever they've said or done. At some point in your life, you are in charge. You call the shots. You decide to eat or not eat. Is lack of will power a disease? Is lack of self-discipline a disease? I would love to eat my body weight in chocolate chip cookies, french fries, and peanut butter, but I don't. I choose not to. That's on me, just like it's on me if I choose to do it."
Shaun T says:
Are you not losing weight?
Ask yourself these questions: Are you pressing pause? Are you taking breaks? Are you getting full range of motion through every exercise? Is you're eating clean eating 1 time of day, or eating 5 times a day?
And then get rid of the body image and recognize whether you're getting physically strong and more capable at performing exercises.
Be patient, the weight will come off.
Harley Pasternak says:
Move at Least 10K Steps a Day
"That is a minimum," said Harley. "For a lot of people, this is a real, simple thing to start with. I don't [tell clients] you need to start eating tofu, become gluten intolerant, whatever — just start moving. Be a little more active."
He mentioned that one good choice leads to another, and starting with simple movement goals can build into something even bigger. It works, too. We interviewed a woman who lost 10 dress sizes bystarting with a goal of 10,000 steps per day on her Fitbit.
"All of the sudden, you start being conscious of other behaviors. You grab that scone in the morning and you realize, wait, 'I just got off the subway two stops earlier so I could walk a little bit; I'm gonna undo that and then some by making this food choice. Let me be a little more conscious about it. I'm gonna have half the scone, or instead of the scone I'm gonna have the apple.' It all starts with steps."
