This article about weight loss has a video linked to it
you can view it here (its a facebook video)
I really hate the Diet Industry sometimes.
On the one hand you have Mr Keto VeganPaleo.
Who SWEARS his lean body is down
to his kale and avocado smoothie,
and the homeopathic witchery drops
that he sprays liberally in his mouth every day.
(that are also available from him at £29.99)
This guy totally swears that Calories are irrelevant
that the CICO (cals in vs cals out) equation
is sooooooo last decade.
All you have to do is follow his plant based voodoo.
Do some excessive exercise regime he designed.
and ETHICAL BOOM – you’ll be in Shredsville USA.
Then on the other hand you’ve got the Weight Loss Fit Pro
Sliding in your Instagram sponsored stories
Or barging his way into your facebook ads
‘Hey bro all you need for weight loss is a Calorie Deficit’
Well thank you very much
I’m not STUPID bro
I do realise that if I shove more food in my gob
Than what I manage to burn off by moving around
I’m probably going to put on some weight.
Now I know that there are
1. REALLY THICK PEOPLE
2. People who literally won’t listen to reason
3. Susan from accounts
Who still believe that eating some magic fat
will tell their bodies to burn up bodyfat.
They may even sell such a product
because they magically lost weight
while using it years ago.
While at the same time being mindful
of their eating and didn’t eat as much
so lost weight but that’s irrelevant of course
If you’re reading this article
then you’re hopefully not in those 3 groups
if you are then I’m glad you’ve found this article.
So you might know, like i do
that calories will be the main driver
for fat loss or gain
What you need to REALLY know
Like I do, is how to maintain that deficit
It’s like giving someone the keys
to a brand new racing car
without giving them an instruction on
how to drive it.
They’ll most likely make a decent stab at it
but end up wrapping it around a tree
This is how diets work for people
who want to succeed and are given the keys
but with no direction or support
They end up wrapping themselves
around a 24inch pizza, or Five Guys
most of the time wondering how it happened.
This is my major bugbear with fitpros
The ones who preach the calorie deficit chant
with little or no other substance
There’s no attention to
Break Cues to stop you eating to much
Secondary Gain triggers to prevent binges
‘If this, then’ protocols to address stressful eating situations
Mindful Eating to cognitively think of your meals
Riding the Wave of cravings to prevent binging
And why would they know about these
or even care about them
These are not sexy topics
they don’t get you more likes on instagram
no hi fives from the general public
Plus you can’t really be ‘controversial’ yelling into a video:
‘YO DUDE lets talk about FCUKING Secondary GAIN Triggers YEAH!!!!’
Because there’s no enemy to address
No villain to rally against unless it’s yourself
Calories is an easy one as you just slag off
Slimming World, Weight Watchers or Joe Wicks.
Maybe Eddie Hall if you’re brave
If the majority of the content from your fav fit pro is
‘Calorie FCUKING deficit’ . swear swear etc
Then it’s likely they don’t know
about all these other factors.
So are they the ones that you should be following
or listening to as a guide to your nutrition?
This is why I built Target Lean.

Calorie deficit is an easy thing to calculate
It’s how we help you maintain it
without feeling you are on a diet
