Frustrated, confused and fed up are the words that best describe how I used to feel about my body.
Have you ever felt this way?
My chubby physique left me feeling low on confidence and unhappy with what I saw in the mirror.
And despite doing what I thought were all the right things, like eating healthy foods and doing loads of exercise, my weight refused to budge.
That annoyed the heck out of me!
A number of years later I managed to work the weight off body but it took superhuman efforts and left me feeling drained.
In my early thirties I trained for 14-18 hours per week to compete in Ironman triathlons.
The endless hours of exercise sure made me lean and very fit, I even qualified for the Ironman 70.3 world championships, but I also felt exhausted and too fatigued to enjoy life.
It was no way to live and certainly wasn’t healthy.
What I really wanted was to be in good enough shape to feel confident about my body but not have to dedicate a crazy number of hours exercising so that I could enjoy other important things in life - like spending time with my wife or simply enjoying some time on the sofa watching Netlix!
I found what I was looking for and managed to lose body fat and keep it off for good without living in the gym or giving up my favourite foods.
And once I stopped falling for the nutrition non-sense I was reading in magazines and instagram and started focusing on the things that actually matter and deliver a real return on investment I discovered that geting and staying in shape was actually pretty easy!
My story taught me 3 things:
1. You dont have to feel trapped inside of a body you feel unhappy and unconfident about. You can change - all of us can change.
2. You can get leaner, firmer and healthier without eating like a bird or training like an olympic athlete.
3. Losing weight and keeping it off forever does not need to be a miserable, confusing or frustrating process.
So if you want to avoid making the same mistakes as me (there were MANY by the way!) and fast track your results so that you can look and feel better than ever, buy the clothes you want, and stop feeling embarrassed about having your photo taken - get in touch.
