How to Lose 20 LBS of Fat! (THE RIGHT WAY)
Whatsup guys, I’m really excited about today’s video because rather than breaking down some fat loss myths or going over just one particular diet or just one particular workout plan I get to tell you guys exactly what you’ll need to do step by step to lose 20 pounds of fat the right way. And this is really great because there are a lot of wrong ways to go about losing 20 pounds. Now even though there’s more than one method to help you lose the 20 pounds of fat the principles for losing the weight and keeping it off remain the same. And those specific principles are what I want to touch on today.
So let’s get right into this because after spending over half my life training myself as well as thousands of people I’ve gathered some really great information that I really think will help. The first thing that you’re going to have to do to lose the weight and keep it off is to approach your goal with the right mental disposition. What this means is that most people will approach weight loss as a temporary activity with a beginning and an end. That’s why when a new client walks through my gym doors they will typically ask questions like “How long will this take,” and “will I keep the weight off after losing it.” And of course these questions are important, you want to burn the fat as fast as possible, and losing 20 pounds will be absolutely useless if you gain it all right back. But 99.9 percent of the time these questions stem from the mentality that we’re going to apply a temporary fix that will give you the body you want forever. And that’s not how losing weight to permanently look and feel the way you want works. With this type of mentality you will fail, and let me give you a quick example to illustrate my point. Wouldn’t it sound silly to ask your dentist how long you have to brush your teeth to keep them white and never get cavities again? You also wouldn’t ask for how long after you’re done brushing your teeth will they stay white and healthy.
Because the action of brushing your teeth on a daily basis for the rest of your life is the very thing that gives you nice teeth and keeps them that way. The way your body looks and feels is very similar. We all have a physical body which needs to be taken care of physically or else over time it will deteriorate. So the first step to losing fat the right way is to come to the conclusion that this is a lifelong commitment just like brushing your teeth. I say this all the time, what your body looks like today is the result of what you’ve done for the last couple days, weeks, months, and years. So treat this as a permanent endeavor & you will be permanently rewarded with a better body. Now since this is permanent we have to find a dieting approach that we can actually stick to. Understand that there is no one right diet. You can lose 20 pounds with a low carb diet, a high carb diet there’s Atkins, keto, paleo, vegetarian, and a number of different diet approaches like carb cycling & fasting. All of them can help you lose weight & just because one works better than the other for me doesn’t mean that the same approach will work better for you.
Now that might sound confusing, but it’s absolutely critical that you find the best diet structure that works for you so you can actually stick to it. To lose weight & keep it off you don’t have to avoid carbs, you don’t have to eat 5 to 6 small meals a day, and you don’t have to eat at specific times of the day. You have to create a caloric deficit, consume just enough protein to support lean body mass, and keep insulin levels low by sticking to whole single ingredient foods. You can find whole single ingredient foods just by sticking to the outside aisles of your grocery store. When choosing what single ingredient foods to include in your diet make sure you’re choosing healthy options that you actually enjoy eating. All too often people will find out about a diet like the ketogenic diet for example & then almost immediately they’re following this new plan without ever thinking about the long-term success associated with adopting such a plan. The ketogenic diet can be great for people that love foods that are high in fat but don’t really enjoy eating a lot of carbohydrates. If you like eating higher fat foods like steak, bacon, eggs, butter, avocados, cream cheese, & low carb veggies like asparagus & spinach then a keto style diet plan can be a very good fit for you. However, if you love oatmeal, rice, potatoes, bread, and pasta then giving up those foods for the rest of your life with a keto diet structure is probably going.
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 over 1,000,000 subscribers!
