4 Steps to Effortless Weight Loss: Educate, Calculate, Log, Lose

I can say without a shadow of a doubt if you follow this program you will get results. I started in late October and have lost 25 lbs and counting.

This is NOT the Paleo Diet. In fact, I don’t care what you eat as long as you stay under your caloric needs that I call your “magic number” (more on that in a minute).

Here are the 4 Things You Need To Do:

1. Educate

I didn’t create this weight loss system. The program we are following is called the Renaissance Diet. It begins by stating that 50% of your weight loss success will be predicated on the fact that you must create a small CALORIC DEFICIT into your diet. Everyone has a specific number that I call your “magic number”. Other concepts include Macronutrient Ratios, Nutrient Timing, Food Composition and Supplementation. This will become the foundation for your successful weight loss.

2. Calculate

These numbers are based on exact caloric needs based your age, gender, current weight, height and activity level. Use this online calculator to see what your “magic number” will be. We will customize those numbers to meet your needs whether that is weight loss, maintenance or muscle gain. This isn’t a gimmick. Our recommended calculator does all the math for you.

Note: Use “moderately active” as the activity level and set the goal to “Lose” weight. These are the numbers you will input in the app you are going to use on a daily basis.

3. Log

Once we have figured out your “magic number” for weight loss we encourage all our clients to accurately log their Calories on a daily basis using the weighing all their food on a digital scale and logging into a food logging app. 75% of the program focuses on these two variables. If you don’t do this daily you are just guessing and are more likely to fail otherwise. You cannot guess on this diet if you want to be successful.

Note: The app is called MyFitnessPal (Iphone)(Android). Buy any one of these food scales here.

4. Lose

This program is a non-restrictive diet. We will not tell you what you can or can’t eat. Rather we never want you exceeding your “magic number”. Doing this requires daily weighing, scanning, inputting everything you eat. Consistency is the only difference between those who will lose weight and those that won’t. I’ve logged in for over 280 days in a row. It has become a habit and most of my day can be inputted in less than 3 minutes. Like any new program you have to learn how to use it.

Be patient. Don’t give up. The results are amazing. All the while you will still able to have a pizza or favorite dessert!
