Before we get to what that one thing is…
Lets breakdown some weight loss myths.
The truth is…
You’re Not the Reason You Can’t Lose Weight
To be successful at losing weight you have to first understand the weight loss process.
Which most people don’t understand…
This then leads to self-blame and self sabotage.

It’s not your slow metabolism or your lack of will power thats stopping you from losing weight.
The simple fact is: you haven’t been taught the right way to lose weight.
Most peoples weight loss knowledge comes from random sites on the internet and from what their friends say…
None of these are reliable sources for weight loss…
Weight loss isn’t complex… but it is a exact science.
and, if you’re serious about losing weight you have to follow the exact weight loss formula to see any results.
You’re not the reason you can’t lose weight, its the false knowledge you’ve been taught about weight loss thats stoping you from seeing results.
The Powerful Weight Loss Secret They’re Keeping From You!
Currently we are experiencing so much information overload on diets, nutrition, and everything in between.
And, all this extra information is making the simple process of weight loss extremely complex.
The Powerful weight loss tool most weight loss articles Fail to address is the fact that…
To lose weight and keep it off you need to create a caloric deficit.
you must expend more calories than you consume.
How do you do this?
Well, first you need to determine how many calories you need to maintain your current weight and then eat less than that.
The number of calories you need to maintain your current weight is called Maintenance Calories.
How to determine your maintenance calories is a separate topic that we will be covering in our.
But before we get to that.
We have to discuss the one thing you do every day that is sabotaging your weight loss.
The Number 1 Reason You Can’t Lose Weight…
The Number one reason you cant lose weight…
Is because you’re eating TOO MUCH, Thats it…
The answer is really that simple.
But You might say… “I track everything I eat! and I only eat my allowed calories”
2 things could of gone wrong here.
- You miss calculated your allowed calories for weight loss OR you took a generic number off the internet that just didn’t work for you (for a custom caloric number for your weight loss.
- You’re not tracking everything you eat… AKA you’re snacking and not recording it.
Number 2 is a very popular problem when trying to lose weight.
It is estimated that 67% of your daily caloric intake is comprised of snacks!
In the simplest of terms, snacks are defined as foods you eat between your regular three-square meals a day to satisfy your hunger.
The problem with snacking is that it is done so mindlessly, and sporadically through the day that we are not aware of how much we eat.
And if we believe we are aware of exactly what and how much of it we eat. Research suggests that you actually don’t have a clue.
In fact, we highly underestimate our caloric intake. Even when we use food diaries.
This is highlighted in the case study below…
Our Friend Debbie Thinks She Has a Slow Metabolism
CASE STUDY: “Debbie with the Slow Metabolism”
Debbie strongly believed she had a slow metabolism because she had tried various diets with no success.
To look into this problem, Debbie volunteered to have her metabolism checked as part of a study.
The medical team involved found, however, that Debbie had a normal, healthy functioning metabolism.
So why wasn’t she losing weight through the various diets she had tried?
The medical team had Debbie keep a food and video diary over a 9-day period to record exactly what she ate.
After the 9-day experiment, Debbie recorded 1,100 calories a day.
This is 900 calories less than the daily recommendation. So how could she possibly not lose any weight?
Clearly, she had created a caloric deficit, which would obviously lead to weight loss.
What Debbie was unaware of was that the medical team was “spying” on her by providing her with doubly-labeled water containing isotope markers.
The doubly-labeled water allowed the Medical Team to examine Debbie’s urine to determine exactly how many calories she was burning and eating.
Although Debbie’s diary recordings showed a daily consumption of 1,100 calories, her urine results showed that she was actually consuming 3,000 calories a day.
That means that Debbie under-reported a total of 1,900 calories!
I would recommend seeing the video for yourself!
You won’t regret it.
Decrease Your Snacking Decrease Your Weight
Snacking here and there won’t automatically transform you into being overweight right away…
But doing it mindlessly, even in small amounts like an extra 70 calories a day could lead to an approximate weight gain of 70 pounds over a ten-year period.
Especially if we factor in your metabolism slowing down over time.
We know it’s hard to stop and change our eating habits, but if you start with small, sustainable steps, you’ll be sure to notice the difference in how you look and feel.
We suggest incorporating one of the steps below and then implementing more as you learn to apply it in your routine.
Counting Calories Is Crucial to Weight Loss
As we discussed above
Weight Loss is very very simple….
Calories in versus Calories out.
It’s a energy equation,
If you burn more calories than you consume, you WILL lose weight
Beware there is a lot of information contradicting this,
But you can’t contradict science.
It works the way it works.
Weight loss is down to a science.
If you follow the formula you lose weight.

Some people might fight the concept of calories in vs calories out too easy to actually work..
With further investigation they’ll find that weight loss is in fact due to a caloric deficiency.

Maybe you’re just ONE of those people that can NEVER lose weight…
Just because you decreased your Calories doesn’t mean your in a caloric deficit!
Weight loss isn’t random..
Its a very specific calculation.
You can’t just decrease your calories by a random number..
you’re caloric deficiency has to be calculated…
