How many times have you started a fitness program or diet and failed? If you’re like the average person, the answer is too many to count! Is it that none of these programs work? Or is it that you didn’t have the strategy to succeed? My guess is probably a few programs don’t work, and for rest of them…it was probably your doing. Let’s stop that cycle. Here are our five rules to have a winning strategy with Jet Set Body 2.0, or any other program.
Rule 1: How Committed Are You
If you walk into Starbucks and ask 10 people “Do you want to lose weight/be lean and toned?”, I would bet that 10 out of 10 say “Yes!”. But, how many of those people are willing to put down the Caramel Brulée Frappuccino with Whip and do something about it? Probably 3 out of 10.
So- my question isn’t “Do you want to lose weight/be lean and toned?”, it’s “Are you willing to do ANYTHING it takes to lose weight/be lean and toned?”.
Are you willing to….
- Drink a gallon of water a day.
- Say “bye-bye” to soda and high-calorie beverages.
- Exercise 4-5 days per week, 45-75 min each time.
- Say “bye-bye” to binge drinking & eating crap all weekend long!
- Commit to having the 1-3 cheat meals per week (yes, you get those in Jet Set Body!)
- Not survive on fast-food.
If you answered “No” to any of the questions above, you are not ready for Jet Set Body 2.0!
Rule 2: Will You Really Follow the Program
This is a biggie, and quite honestly, why most people fail. Why would you pay for a program and then not follow it? Most likely, the reason is because you’re either not ready (see Rule 1 above), or you’re letting your knowledge about nutrition, fitness and weight loss get in the way of your success. I can’t tell you the number of emails I get from people saying “Can I really have 3 cheats a week? Isn’t that too much?” or my personal favorite “This plan has too many carbs.”
Here’s the bottom line. If you have been unable to successfully create and keep the body you want on your knowledge alone, and you’ve purchased a product to learn how someone else did it- then commit to ignoring the outside knowledge and follow the plan you paid for.
Of course, if the plan asks you to do or take things that will harm you- don’t follow it but that’s kinda obvious.
Rule 3: Read the WHOLE Program
Most fitness and nutrition programs come with some sort of guide, book, PDF etc.. that discusses the program, the exercise, the nutrition and tons of important info.
In Jet Set Body 2.0 we have created a detailed video course with over 10 modules that cover your whole program, gives you the “why” behind everything, discusses exercise and nutrition in length, has an FAQ and sample meal plan!
Rule 4: Don’t Cherry Pick
This one kind-of goes with Rule 2 and following the program but is important enough to need it’s own rule. Do not go into a program, like Jet Set Body 2.0, that is a complete system – both exercise and nutrition, only follow the parts you like and then expect the same result as that landed David on Bodybuilding.com for his transformation. If you are going to do the program, then do the whole darn thing….yep kiddies….that includes the nutrition plan, the weight training plan, ahem…the functional workouts and of course, the cheats! Yes, even the cheats are important!
Rule 5: Patience…Patience….Patience
This one is tough. How many times have you started a fitness program or diet and by week 2 or 3 you didn’t like your progress and quit?
Well, if it only took two-weeks, it would be a two-week program, not a 12-week program. So- guess what, it takes 12 weeks to get the final result!
An average weight loss of 1-2 pounds per week is right on track and healthy. If you’re not losing 1-2 lbs, it could be that you’re not really following the program (see Rules 2, 3, 4).
Another note on this, especially for my Jet Set Body 2.0 peeps, the scale may or may not change in the first 4 weeks. DO NOT WORRY. This is normal and, yes, it will change! Be patient! Rob and David, two of our best transformations, both complained that they “weren’t losing enough” initially. I told them to hold on and wait for what I call “The Woosh”. “The Woosh” is the week you’ve been waiting for where all of a sudden the scale tips and tips hard, then keeps going, down and down…. both thought I was crazy, and both have since retracted that statement as they’ve been “Wooshed”.
BONUS TIP: Variety is KEY!
I couldn’t leave this one out of the blog! Variety is key for many reasons.
A. Eating the same thing over and over, every day will lead to diet insanity and quitting. For this to work and work long term, you MUST create a lifestyle! We have Jet Set Body people going on Round 3, 4 and even 5! LIFESTYLE!!!
B. Lack of Variety leads to feeling deprived. Feeling deprived leads to cheating on your plan. Cheating on your plan leads to lack of success. Lack of success leads to quitting.
C. Eating the same food, every day, is the same as doing the same workout plan every day. Your body adapts and soon, you don’t get results.
