Today you'll meet one of my male clients as he shares the hard work he did to set his ego aside and pursue growth beyond his comfort zone.

He joined the Fat Loss Fast Track once he decided to stop focusing on what was wrong & all his past failures. He wasn't comfortable with the idea of journaling or taking a look at his emotional eating patterns but he did it anyway.

He realized he had been quite comfortable in his patterns but deeply unhappy. He made the choice to get uncomfortable so he could become happy.

His story is a powerful one. Don't miss it! I have no doubt that he can encourage you to find growth beyond your comfort zone.

Breaking Barriers - Overcome Emotional Eating & Self-Limiting Beliefs

Mar 28, 2017

One of the first questions I ask people when they get on the free Primal Potential VIP email list is "What are you struggling with & how can I help?"

Recently, a common answer has been, "How can I stop bingeing?"

However you define binge eating or simply eating to a point of regret & frustration, today I'm sharing 3.5 strategies (yup, there's a half strategy in there) to help you improve your food behaviors and take more control.

The other night I hosted a live webinar. I focused on why most of us fail. It's not about food. It's not about exercise. We're projecting our past choices, experiences & disappointments onto our present & future behavior.

We are in our own way. We are limiting our potential based on our pasts.

I want to help you overcome limiting beliefs, see doubt & fear as a lie and plow forward creating a life you love.

I also talk in today's episode about the Spring Fat Loss Fast Track, which kicks off on Sunday April 2nd. You can register here.

Guys, I had a fat loss breakthrough. I've shared that 2017 is my a push year for my fat loss goals and I was totally dialed in with food & fitness. Unfortunately, I was overlooking a few critical factors that could make or break my success.

I believe strongly that understanding & optimizing blood sugar and insulin is critical for lasting fat loss. I have been so focused on eating and working out in a way that does so. However, I hadn't considered how non-food factors might be impacting my blood sugar.

In today's episode, I'm sharing my fat loss breakthrough and what I'll be doing to understand how stress, sleep, workouts and food sensitivities are impacting my blood sugar and insulin responses.

I am as surprised to write this as you might be to read this: I just completed a 5-day fast.

Essentially, for 5 days, I had nothing but water and coffee. During the first full 24 hours I had a couple of very low sugar kombuchas but yeah...crazy, right?

In episodes 300 and 307 I talked about why I did it and why I feel strongly that it's dramatically different (emotionally & metabolically) from a crash diet but today I want to share the experience and talk about the primary lessons I learned from this 5 day fast and how I think it will influence my diet & mindset moving forward.

The other day, while dealing with multiple airport delays, I realized I have a super power. I believe this super power is what is largely responsible for me not ditching all healthy habits I fought so hard to build when my life got turned upside down with health & personal issues.

That super power is a work in progress but it is changing my life more and more every day.

In today's episode I'm sharing with you the power of being non-reactive as a way to improve your choices and become a happier, healthier, more stable person.

In today's episode I want to talk to you as if you were one of my coaching clients. I want to help YOU create YOUR fat loss foundation.

Today is all about learning to not get distracted by other peoples' journeys or strategies and instead focusing on your own work.

Do you know which basic habits drive results for you?

Are you consistent with them?

Those are the only two questions that matter for most people.

Once you've consistently mastered the basics habits that drive results for you, then & only then move on to intensity or advanced strategies.

And no matter where you are on your journey, keep your eyes on your own work!

Ready for a little fire this morning? I want to help you crush your comfort zone. I've shared that I'm taking steps each day to make myself uncomfortable for the sake of growth and moving to the next level & I want to help you do the same.

In today's minisode I share my perspective that discomfort needs to be the starting line, not the finish line.

I challenge you to find your limits by doing things that make you uncomfortable.

If discomfort, fear, judgement or embarrassment are the price of admission to my very best life, I'm willing to pay. Today.

I hope you are too.

We all want consistent results. Of course we do! Unfortunately, we often invest more energy in hoping for outcomes than in maximizing our effort & consistency.

In today's episode, I'm sharing a conversation with one of my Fat Loss Fast Track clients where we talk about effort versus outcomes.

When I asked her what she wanted, she said she wanted more consistent results. I quickly redirected her to a focus on consistency in her effort and the application of what she knows.

While she agreed with me, she also shared that she forgets. Day to day, she forgets to redirect her focus from outcomes to effort. Fair point!

We took the conversation to how she can keep effort & consistency in the forefront of her mind.

We also have a great conversation about getting bored with food, feeling guilty when you indulge and living a to-do list instead of living a life. This is a powerful, jam-packed, practical episode! Don't miss it!
