We’ve had a big year with the Get Lean program and the blog. We have helped many people to lose body fat, and I hope we’ve taught quite a few of you some valuable lessons as well.

What I’ve noticed is patterns. Things that the successful people do, that you can learn from. Here comes some stuff for you to read and learn……
Minimum Workouts and consistency. The people winning in this game are able to string together very long streaks, days in a row if you like, of training. Day after day after day. The key seems to be having realistic expectations about what you can do day after day. Don’t set up for failure by aiming for 1 hour every day. Aim for a minimum of 30 minutes, or 20, or even 15.
The people who are successful are training almost every day. Usually 27 days plus per month. BE ONE OF THESE people. Consistency goes such a long way when you are trying to keep lean, get fit, enjoy the benefits of optimal health. Treat yourself like an athlete and plan your day so your training is equal priority to anything else. Another tip? Train in the morning, we all know that the afternoon can get hectic and out of control.
Go To Meals. Yep, get some meals organised that you use often, that are healthy, high protein, low sugar, and will keep you full. You have to have some ‘go to’ meals. I notice that the people getting great results in my programs will often have 1-2 breakfasts that they use, 2-3 lunches, and then quite a lot of variety around dinner but more often than not it’s got a good serve of protein, and then vegetables to round it out in some way. Not too many clients are having heavy carbohydrate meals at night, so you shouldn’t either. I get most clients to eat carbs in the middle of the day so they get the nutritional benefits of the carbohydrate foods, and they also have the chance during the day to burn them up too so we don’t get fat storage occurring.
Go To meals most often popping up with my successful clients? Omelettes or eggs for breakfast, wraps at lunch or a salad containing a protein serve, and then a wider variety of dinners.
Sugar Gets Cut. Yep, I’ll go on about this a lot. With good reason. My successful clients reduce their sugar intake. Period. Get it out.
Planning. The winners are better planners. In life, in training, in work, in nutrition. Success comes down to WHAT YOU ACTUALLY DO, and if you are setting up realistic plans weekly and daily, and writing them down, you’ll be more likely to do those actions. What are YOUR most important actions daily? Plan them into your day. Achieve them. This is crucial to success. More planning. I’ll say it again, more planning!
Mindful Eating. Bit of a buzz term but I have noticed the better results are coming from people who think about their food, eat slowly, are not distracted, and savor what they are eating. Don’t rush, think about your food, and enjoy your food.
