Getting ready to lose weight? Weight loss is not as simple as many want you to believe. It is often broken down in an annoyingly simple equation of “calories in vs. calories out” that simply is not helpful.
After 15 years of helping people lose weight one of the biggest mistakes that I see is not paying attention to the seasonal changes happening around us right now.
There is a saying in the weight loss industry these days that “September is the new January”. The industry sees a real uptick in activity from people joining gyms to weight loss programs and purchasing tools and technologies that support weight loss.
Weight loss is a highly misunderstood science in our current culture. The language and communication that has emerged on the topic is one that eliminates much personal responsibility, instead putting that responsibility on a new trend, book or set of rules created by an influence outside of ourselves.
O.k so let’s be honest here. In all my years in the weight loss industry, losing and maintaining my weight I have NEVER lost weight on a vacation. Let’s be brutally honest…it just hasn’t really been my goal.
