Something I get asked on a regular basis from people, students, and other instructors is how do I get rid of this?? (Grabs belly and gives it a shake). It’s normally just before a grading or a training camp or a holiday. The problem with that is the time frame. Weight loss, fat loss, building muscle! It all takes time and there is no quick fix to solve it. People looking for a quick fix in my opinion are not ready for a lifestyle change; they lack the commitment and the drive to adopt a healthier lifestyle and will ultimately fall off the wagon time and time again. This is the reason you rarely see people on weight watchers, Herbalife and those crap juice diets actually transforming their bodies. The idea of replacing meals with Juice or shakes is ridiculous and in my opinion promotes issues with eating real food which can have dire consequences. How often do you hear people saying oh i need to get back to weight watchers I’m at minus 600 Points, I’m definitely going on the cabbage diet….Face Palm.
