The “Magical” And Empowering Mindset That Will Make Your Diet Work Every Time

0

It’s just a matter of time before a person realizes just how important the way they eat is to the way they look and feel.

You can become a real “beast” in the gym day in and day out but, if you don’t get your nutritional habits in order, you’ll neutralize all of that hard work.

That puts even more pressure on us to follow through with good eating habits. Who wants to waste all of that hard work?

We sometimes get confused because there are so many diets out there and so many experts who seem to be telling us that their way is the “right” way and, if we go about things any other way, we’ll just be wasting our time.

Well, at least it seems like that’s what those experts are telling us, right?

All of this confusion and overwhelm can disrupt the certainty of even the most confident people who are working hard to take their bodies to a higher level.

There is a “magical” and empowering mindset that, when you apply this way of thinking to your nutritional habits, you will get great results from the diet plan you go on every single time.

Do You Know What the Most Important Factor In An Effective Diet Is? YOU!

You must give the diet you have chosen your full focus and attention in order to get the best results.

Just about any diet, when implemented on a consistent basis, will work for you. But, you must have confidence in your diet in order for you to give it your full focus and attention.

People frequently let themselves become confused easily and can’t even get started on a nutritional plan without 100 percent certainty that the diet plan they are adhering to will work for them.

With all of the diets available, it will be almost impossible for you to have 100 percent certainty and confidence in the diet you have chosen. Just when you think you are on the right path, you will hear or read about a new “miracle” diet. Just when you are ready to dig in and get going on a structured eating program, a person you know will tell you about all the amazing results they are getting with their diet—which seems very different than yours. Heck! Even if your diet is working, you will sometimes doubt if it is working well or fast enough.

Instead of focusing on the differences, try to discover how the diets are similar. You need to ask yourself, “What do these diets have in common?”

There’s No Substitute for Hard Work When It Comes To Losing Body Fat

When it comes to dieting to lose body fat, there’s no substitute for hard work.

Believe me, I really wish this were not the case. Unfortunately, however, you must burn more calories than you ingest every day to lose that stubborn body fat.

Low-fat diets, high-fat, carefully watching your fat intake, or paying close attention to the glycemic index in your foods—it doesn’t matter. When the day is done, you must burn more calories than you eat. It doesn’t even matter if all the food you eat is healthy, non-junk food, or “clean,” it’s total must be lower than your maintenance level.

As I always say, “God puts a price-tag on everything.” If you’ve accumulated some body fat and desperately want to get rid of it, you are going to have to pay the price. The price may be spending more time sweating on a treadmill, feeling hungry on occasion, or both. Whatever method you choose, there will be some pain involved. I would be lying to you if I told you any differently.

Anyone who tells you differently is just flat-out misleading you! I firmly believe it is our desire to discover some painless alternative that we mistakenly believe is “somewhere out there” which prevents us from dieting the way we must in order to accomplish our goal of losing body fat.

There are several ways to burn more calories than you eat. You can add more cardiovascular work to your training regimen, simply eat less food throughout the day, or even do a combination of more cardiovascular training and eating less food.

So, let’s quit looking for a magic solution when comes to losing body fat and get to work!

Some people in the gym don’t allow themselves to be happy or even satisfied until their ultimate goal is finally achieved. Unless they packed-on all 20 pounds of muscles they’ve set out to gain or dumped all 10 pounds they planned to lose, they aren’t happy. This oftentimes ruins their bodybuilding journeys and makes the entire time getting there a miserable experience. With this disempowering mindset, they more than likely will never get there.

Instead of being results-oriented, you need to become action-oriented. What I mean by that is you need to create a series of action steps that you can do every day to get you closer to the body you ultimately want. Then, you must get yourself to follow through with those action steps on a consistent basis.

Know exactly what you want to gain from your training efforts. Make sure that you create a long term “vision” for exactly what you want to accomplish. Determine what you want to achieve and the timeframe in which you expect to do so. With a clearly defined objective and deadline in mind, you can then determine what specific actions you’ll need to execute every day to get you to your ultimate goal.

After following through with your plan on a consistent basis, you’ll discover that these tasks will become habits. You won’t even need to think about doing them.

You be able to put your head on your pillow at night after executing these daily action steps with a feeling of victory. You can experience that feeling of victory every single day—not only when the big, ultimate goal is finally achieved.

Small improvements—done consistently over a period of time—will produce massive results. That’s a belief that’s so true. If you adopt this way of thinking, it will empower you through the more challenging times of your bodybuilding journey.
