Short-term weight loss is easy. Long-term weight loss is much harder to achieve.
However, you know people who are permanently in beach-ready shape, so it is possible to be lean for life.
This begs the question: how can you lose the weight for good?
The answer is not found in a single habit or action, but rather in the following 5 Lean for Life Habits…
Habit #1: Reimagine Yourself
Up until now you’ve accepted the shape that you are in, and even if you hate it, you’re comfortable with it.
Read that again to make sure it sinks in.
You are comfortable with the body that you have right now, and until you decide it’s no longer comfortable then you’ll be stuck in the shape that you currently have.
Now spend time reimagining yourself healthier, happier and leaner.
Really let that new image sink in until you’re more comfortable with it than you are with the image of your current body.
Rinse and repeat.
The clearer you can see and feel and imagine yourself in a fitter, leaner body, the more urgency and desire you will create to achieve and maintain it.
Habit #2: Break-Up With Sugar
"Look, Sugar, we have to break up. It’s not you; it’s me. Sure, we’ve had some good times. You’ve tickled my sweet tooth and pleased my taste buds, but loving you is a double-edged sword that leaves me heavy and out of shape. So this is it, we are through!"
As silly as that sounded, your relationship with sugar is holding you back from living in a lean for life body.
It’s not only refined sugar that is messing with your body composition; in order to be lean for life you’ll also need to manage your intake of natural sugars.
The good news is that every day spent without sugar will make the next day that much easier and your cravings will become that much weaker.
Now i'm not saying you can't ever have sugar, that would make life very dull wouldn't it?
But by drastically reducing it, can only help improve your chances of achieving your goals.
