Hey there

Before I start, there’s a TOP Fat loss TIP for 40+ Women approximately half way down this email. You really don’t want to miss it...it is the key to how we continue to get fabulous "feel fantastic" results here at Zig Zag

 

Anyway, back to my potential client's slow metabolism…

 

I had asked her “What’s your biggest struggle in terms of health fitness and fat loss?

{A telephone conversation last week.}

 

Her response is a big fat lie.....and this is why..

 

Your metabolism is NOT linear. You don't have a FAST or a SLOW one. It's inherently unbalanced in all of us. This is part of its function and how it helps us survive.  It adjusts constantly to everything we do.

 

You eat less, or more, and it responds and adjusts.  You exercise more or less and it will react in kind. You encounter stress, have sleep issues, get ill, age, become pregnant, go through hormonal changes, etc and it responds.

 

so why do I never seem to be able to burn fat even when I’m being super good?

 

There are,of course,many reasons this could be happening. Most are behavioural and non are down to her genes.

 

TOP TIP COMING UP

 

>>The number one mistake almost all dieters make is an unchanging program<<

 

Think about it. You start a diet and your metabolism changes after a few days and weeks to adjust.  And then you do what? Keep doing the same thing? 

 

No wonder you're failing.  You have to adjust as well!!  It's the equivalent of “keeping the metabolism on its toes.”

 

How often have you started a new program, perhaps eaten less and started running more and seen some good results in the first few weeks? Then things have slowed down. You've continued to eat less and run more (for as long as you can bear it) in the hope that things will change? They don't. You get frustrated. You give up. A few months later, a few pounds heavier (a bit more lethargic and frustrated ) you try another approach. You eat more "good stuff" and lift more. It works! For a while. It slows down. you continue to do the same in the hope that things will change again. They don't. You give up.........

 

It's INSANE right?

 

So what's the answer?

 

To beat stubborn fat you need to work with this natural ebb, flow and ever changing nature of the metabolism. 

Keep shaking things up

 

I do this every 2 weeks with the Zig Zag ladies in terms of their training. I have to, otherwise I know that what they do will become ineffective. No matter how good they get at it , no matter how much they're enjoying it! - And they do, so I'm told, By the way!😉

 

That steady state run that you've been focusing on? Great if you goal is to run a 5,10 km 1/2 marathon.....but if your goal is fat loss? There are much better, time efficient ways to do it. AND less dull.  

 

That weights routine you were given at the gym 2 years ago? Is your body still having to work to adjust to the overload? 

 

That eating plan you started back last summer. Did you reach your goal? Are you now in maintenance? Are you happy continuing to eat that way forever? Yes? BRILLIANT! You shouldn't be reading this! You should be writing a similar newsletter. But if you're still wanting to shed some pounds and its not working sticking to the same eating plan...Change it!!!!

 

And if you’re not sure what to change and when, get some expert help!
