Most of us learned this in kindergarten, but it seems it’s a lesson we easily forget. You know, like when you were a kid and you thought two coins were better than one – like two nickels were better than one quarter. The opposite is true.

Of course, when it comes to fat loss, some of the simplest, most principled things get convoluted and confused, and we step over the $100 bill because the new, shiney nickel gleams and catches our eye.

Well today’s episode is your wake-up call! Stop searching for shiny objects you think will be the magic charm to turbo-charge your fat loss. Start picking up $100 bills, and you’ll reach success.

Episode highlights:


- The number one thing your brain needs in order to progress and move forward (1:24)
- A simple question to ask yourself to improve as a leader that your brain has no choice but to answer (2:33)
- Why you should never, ever, ever over-diet and push to the extreme (2:33)
- A simple system of measurement that is WAY more effective at determining you actual fat loss than stepping on scales or counting calories (6:44)
- If you’re going hard in the morning with cardio and killing yourself with calorie suppression, but you’re not doing this beforehand, might as well give up now (9:06)
- Where to find your “$100 bills” that will really ramp up your fat loss efforts (9:53)
- Most people get it all wrong when it comes to Keto diets. Here’s what you really need to know … (10:25)
- Feel like your fat loss has stalled? Observing changes in these parts of your body will tell you if you’re on the right track (12:07)

One away …

I can’t believe how fast time has flown by. Next week is the 100th episode of the Unlocking Your Inner Strength Podcast. Be sure to take a moment to celebrate with me (… part of the Fitness Pizza Pie, remember?). Here’s to dispelling more of the horribly bad mainstream fitness advice and moving forward in success, together!

I hope you found this helpful. Thanks for joining me on this journey. Please share this episode and leave the show a review on iTunes. Connect with me on Facebook: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert.

You’re stronger than you know!

Mistakes in any area of life can be a good thing – if you learn from them, and they don’t get you arrested. But too often, I see people making the same mistakes over and over again when it comes to fat loss.

In the last episode, I shared with you some things to start doing to win your fat loss battles. Today, let’s talk about what you need to avoid doing.

Episode highlights:


- An app I recommend for tracking progress on your fat loss goal (1:58)
- You can avoid the absolute BIGGEST fat loss mistake people make just by doing this one easy thing (3:07)
- The number one reason why people put off starting a fat loss program – or anything else – and how to brush past it (3:35)
- The two components that must be in any diet in order to supercharge your fat loss and maintain it (5:06)
- Why you’re better off starting with small changes versus shooting out from the gate (5:54)
- If you notice your body doing more of these two things, good news -- you’re in fat loss mode (7:11)
- The three biological processes of fat loss and how to help your body make them happen more easily (8:56)
-If you’re not doing these three crucial things right, forget about fat loss supplements (10:44)

Keep it simple …

It might seem a little overwhelming to think about all of the things you should and should not be doing to win the fat loss war. That’s ok. Here’s the best thing you can do: take the first step. You’ll figure out the rest as you go.
Remember, you don’t have to be perfect. You just have to stick with it, which all of these tips should help you do.

I hope you found this helpful. Next week we’ll talk nutrition and cheat meals. Please leave the show a review on iTunes, and like me on Facebook: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert.

Do you want to know what I love about helping people on their fitness journey, specifically with losing fat? It’s the fact that even just showing up every day and going through the process makes a person’s life so much more rewarding. That is, if they’re doing it right. And there’s more bad information out there on how to lose fat than there is right, and actually helpful information.

Honestly, it makes me angry that so many people believe they have to do these extreme diets and endless cardio to lose weight. All of that can actually backfire, big. Let’s talk about why …

Episode highlights:


- People get into fitness because of body image issues, but little-known fact, most bodybuilders have more body image issues after they start competing. Here’s why (1:27)
- Your body is like a pendulum. Expect this to happen if push it too hard one way … (2:44)
- The biggest predictor of future weight gain isn’t the junk food you eat. It’s this one thing you think you’re doing right (3:09)
- You’re not Arnold Schwarzenegger or Lolo Jones. And that’s good because knowing this will help you design training programs that actually work (3:26)
- Be the tortoise, not the hair when you start your fat loss journey. - -Then you’ll be able to pay attention to this … (4:04)
- Why rigid restrictions and endless cardio workouts actually may make you fatter (4:26)
- The first two things you need to focus on in your weight loss effort … (4:59)
- To guarantee improvement in any area, you have to commit to doing this one thing (6:44)
- You lose the most fat when you’re doing this. Neglect it, and you’re sure to actually pack on weight (8:57)
- A super simple multiplication to figure out how many calories you should be consuming for optimal weight loss (9:44)
- If your body becomes more efficient at using fewer calories, what do you think will happen when you start eating normal portions again? (10:58)

Focus on fat loss at least once per year …

Now that you know the real science and approach to losing weight, I recommend you try to focus on fat loss at least once per year. Even if you have just a little to lose, the process will sharpen your focus, aid in goal setting and improve your overall quality of life.

That’s all for this episode, I hope you learned something useful. Next week we’ll talk supplements and conditioning protocols. Please leave the show a review on iTunes, and like me on Facebook: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert.

You’re stronger than you know!

Want to have a little fun? Try this with the resident trainer at your local gym. Next time you see him, ask him how the seven different biological systems adapt to imposed demands. Ask him how those adaptations work in conjunction with the Fitness Pizza Pie to wrap up into the broader goal of achieving holistic training.

The fact is, most run of the mill trainers don’t know any of this stuff. They can hold a stopwatch and yell at you to run until you puke, but unless you find the balance between stressing every single one of your 7 bodily systems and everything else on the Fitness Pizza Pie, you’re never going to see the full potential of your strength and health. Here’s what you need to know about these seven systems ...

Highlights from today’s show:

- First, a note about fear and mastering your mind to recognize where fear comes from (1:11)
- A quick review of the Fitness Pizza Pie from last time. Each of these slices correlates to health and strength in your 7 bodily fitness systems (4:51)
- News flash! Training effects everybody differently. Why recognizing this actually makes planning for your training and nutrition much more simple (5:59)
- Without further adieu, the 7 fitness bodily systems are … (6:19)
- Training is all about creating adaptation to imposed demands. For the best health and strength, you’ve got to stress every one of your bodily fitness systems, but you also can’t neglect to do this … (9:03)

Sleep, relax, play and learn …

I know I keep hammering this, but I just want to make sure you hear it here, because you’re likely not hearing it anywhere else. When life gets crazy with work and obligations, you may be able to get to the gym and eat right, but neglecting your sleep, relaxation, play and learning is like planting a palm tree in Antarctica. Don’t sabotage your health and strength for any reason. You’re a much better worker and all-around person when you’re strong and healthy.

 


Ok. That’s it for me on my soapbox. Thanks for listening today. I hope you enjoyed it. Please leave the show a review on iTunes, and like me on Facebook: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert.

Enjoy your Fitness Pizza Pie, stress your 7 bodily fitness systems and win your week! You’re stronger than you know!
