The WORST 8-week diet ever…

Written by: Brad Pilon

If I were to ask the average person to “Give me 3 reasons why people struggle to lose weight?” They would probably answer:

1. Food company marketing
2. Simple Sugars
3. Lack of Exercise

And this would be a good answer… but I have a different big three. The big 3 reasons why I think so many people struggle with weight loss year after year…

1. Halloween
2. Thanksgiving
3. Christmas

The reason this Big three is so devastating is that they all happen within an 8 week period.

An average person can get into AMAZING, picture-ready shape in 8 weeks following a good diet and workout program. So what do you think can happen in an 8 week period that starts with 5-6 days of eating way too much chocolate, followed by 5-7 days of turkey and leftover turkey and then capped off with 5-6 days of turkey AND chocolate and 1 special bonus night of way too much champagne (New Years Eve)?

That’s right – a great body can turn average, and an OK body can get really bad, really quickly.

No WONDER most people’s New Years Resolutions are about weight loss… they’ve just finished an 8 week food and drink bender!

Make no mistake, for most people the next 8 weeks are the hardest of the entire year. However, if you WIN these next 8 weeks, then you are setting yourself up for massive success in 2014.

So start now.  Promise yourself that by Sunday at midnight there will be NO Halloween candy in your house.

Next week, re-read Eat Stop Eat… get a ‘feel’ for fasting again as you head into this high-stress 8 week period…

Stick to your workouts,  because this is the time of year when people start to say “I just can’t find the time”. This cannot be you, you must find the time.

Enjoy your food, but be mindful of when it’s time to stop.

Look, there are no magic tricks. I wish I could tell you if you do a couple pushups before each meal then you’ll be fine and won’t gain any weight, but it doesn’t work that way.

Stay strong, these next 8 weeks are the hardest weeks out of the entire year for most people. If you win these weeks, you win the year.
