If you’ve been looking for a way to lose weight effortlessly you’ve probably heard of things like drinking more water, eating smaller portions, taking fat burners, eating from smaller plates, using body wraps, chewing your food slower, & using the stairs instead of the elevator. But unfortunately, the truth is that none of these tricks really work or at least they don’t work to the degree that you need them to work to come anywhere close to making a noticeable difference. And the reason why these tricks don’t work can be explained very easily with a quote from President Roosevelt that goes like this “nothing worth having was ever achieved without effort.” The point is, no matter how hard you look you won’t find the magic pill that lets you lose weight without putting any effort at all into diet & exercise. However, there are ways that you can change your mental disposition & your outlook to make weight loss a much more effortless process. Even though that doesn’t sound as appealing as a magic pill, these methods are actually real & these psychological, as well as physical tricks that I’m about to share with you in a second, will really help you lose weight with less resistance from your mind & your body.

Let’s start with the very first one, you have to come to the understanding that you don’t have to enjoy dieting & exercising in order to do it. And to prove this I’m about to tell you something that no other personal trainer has ever told you. After consistently working out for over 15 years, after being a personal trainer for over 10 of those years, after being a fitness model, & even after opening 3 of my own gyms I can admit that I never loved exercising. Ever. In fact most of the time I don’t even enjoy it.

Even now after all these years, there are plenty of days where I absolutely hate working out. But I still do it, almost every day regardless of how I think & feel about it. The reason why I bring this up is that realizing that you don’t have to enjoy exercise to actually do it is a very very important distinction. It’s important because so many people that struggle with weight loss believe that the other people that are in good shape are the types of people that love working out. Meanwhile, they don’t.

So this creates a mental barrier that says I can never do what those “more athletic” people do because I’m different, I happen to hate exercise. The reality is that there are plenty of people in incredible shape that hate exercise just as much as you do. But the difference is that they realize that their thoughts & their feelings are not the same as the actions they take. So regardless of what you think or how you feel about exercising, I want you to take this one action that can change your whole life…. just…. show… up.

Now, why would you just show up to something that you absolutely hate well there are two major reasons. The first one which is actually my next tip can be summed up with another quote… “the delay of gratification is exactly what leads to gratification.” The point here is that sure eating a good diet & exercising might suck. I mean with exercise alone if you’re doing it right you’ll be covered in sweat, barely able to breathe, while feeling sore all over your body…that sounds like torture, & in a sense it is… but something far worse than that feeling is the feeling you get from constantly reaching for instant gratification. Anyone that has spent a whole day giving into their urges & seeking convenience, as well as expediency has felt like absolute garbage by the end of the day.

However, by delaying that feeling of gratification you’re actually able to attain it. I’ll give you a couple examples if you lay around eating junk food all day long by the end of the day you’re just laying there mindlessly shoving cheese doodles in your mouth that no longer even taste good, & your feeling tired, even though you did nothing you’re feeling tired, practically nauseous & disgusted with yourself.


My passion for fitness began when I was 14 years old. I naturally fell in love with training and haven’t stopped since. At 18 years I acquired my first personal training certification from ACE after which I opened my first gym in 2011, Gravity Training Zone. I'm now in the process of opening up my third location! I love to share my knowledge through personal training, my online courses, and youtube channel now with almost 1,000,000 subscribers! I'm always here for my customers so if you need help don't hesitate to send your questions to max@gravitychallenges.com
