If You Want Change . . . You Have To Change!
You’ve received the message here many times on this site. You may have even picked up on it via my training philosophy that’s shared over on the website of my coaching business.
If you want optimal fitness and a body that looks and feels amazing, you’ve got to start with health first.
There’s just no way around it, whether you merely want short term, significant results or if you want results that last a lifetime — you’ve got to start with health first!
Health cultivated by quality nutrition.
Health elevated through stress management.
Health derived from a strong, positive mindset.
Health nourished thorough quality movement.
Health fostered by being fully in the moment, right now.
You know all of this . . . because you’ve heard it all before. (Not to mention the fact that it’s pretty common sense, right?)
But at the end of the day, knowing it and knowing how to implement it are two different things.
And that’s where I’ll turn this post over to my friend and colleague, the UK’s very own Jon Le Tocq.
In his article below, he discusses the ‘New Rules For Health and Performance’ and the importance of health coming first . . . and through his delivery, he provides a list telling you the exact steps you can take to get the health, looks and performance that you desire.
It’s a great read, a great perspective, and a clear action plan that will help you get your health and fitness on track now.
Enjoy! And Take Action!!
Jon Le Tocq (13 January 2010) What I am about to tell you may seem strange and in direct opposition to what you think you know, but remember this:
I have used these methods to maintain a body fat percentage of 5% on myself, help a lady lose 120lbs in 7 months having tried all the ‘famous’ diets with no success and restore the health of everyone from regular sports fanatics to stressed out business men who were heart attacks waiting to happen!
Also, if you are reading this with excitement at the thought of finally being able to drop body fat, it is clear that what you think you know doesn’t work so listen up!
Here is a list of actions you must start climbing to quickly develop a lean, athletic body and restore your health, dramatically reducing your risk of common ‘affluence diseases’ such as diabetes, heart disease and various cancers which are often non-existent in areas which no access to the Western diet.
The truth is that whilst anyone can drop a few pounds quite quickly, long-term astounding, life-changing results can only be achieved when optimal health is achieved FIRST.
Too many people miss out on this fact while searching for the quick-fix fat loss method.
You must become aware of the following:
1) The media will glamourize whatever will sell newspapers and magazines regardless of the effect on your health. These journalists have not thoroughly researched studies that often contradict the random advice thrown around about nutrition, and using them as your main reference source for fat loss advice is like getting a dentist to fix your car.
2) The medical profession is controlled by drugs companies and is under so much pressure that those who do want to know and dish ou the truth about nutrition simply do not have the time to offer advice and planning which will truly make a difference to you. It is easier, and unfortunately more profitable in many cases, to simply prescribe another pill or shot of insulin.
3) Often the truth has been covered up in order to protect what are very lucrative industries. The government heavily relies on donations from food and drugs companies and often could not afford to lose the backing of entire industries. The truth mysteriously disappears in a lot of these cases.
This is an express guide to give you something to work from. The three points above should illustrate that there is a huge amount of science and critical issues to consider but as you don’t have time for all that, make sure you do all you can to implement the steps below.
Results will be achieved much quicker if you can work with a health and fitness professional who understands the mechanisms behind these steps so please seek one out as soon as possible. (Continue Reading . . . )
