[STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE] How I Lost 17 Pounds Eating Burgers

You’re not going to believe this…

I hardly believe it myself.

I lost 17 pounds of fat and gained more than 11 pounds of muscle…
AND that’s not even the unbelievable part.

What makes this story beyond belief is that I did while eating burgers…
and fries,
and shakes,
and pie,
and hot fudge sundaes,
and cookies,
and waffles,
and well…you get the picture.

I’m going to tell you exactly HOW I did it, but first check out this ultrasound scan on my belly:


On the left is a scan of my belly at the end of January.
Everything above the red arrow is the layer of fat on my belly.

On the right is a scan from the same spot just a few months later.

You can see that the layer of fat has shrunk significantly.

The results are great, but my favorite part of this experience has been not feeling like I’m on a “diet”.

Now I promised to tell you how I lost the fat, so let’s get into it.

Are you ready? Ok, here we go:

The results are great, but my favorite part of this experience has been not feeling like I’m on a “diet”.

Rule #1: But First, Let Me Ask You a Question…

Let me ask you a quick question.

If you love doing something, do you have to force yourself to do it?

Of course you don’t. You probably have to force yourself to stop doing it before you go blind am I right?

I’m talking about binge watching Game of Thrones, what were you thinking?

Back to my point, doesn’t it stand to reason that if you love your program you’ll come back to it again and again.

Yes, of course you will.

The Rule #1 for getting lean and strong for life is to love your program.

Rule #1 for getting lean and strong for life is to LOVE YOUR PROGRAM.

Find a workout that you can love and you will stick to it, and then the results come like magic.

Rule #2: Free Meals Are Not Cheats

The only way to get lean and strong for life is to build a fitness habit.

But to make fitness a part of your life, you’re going to need a couple of pressure relief valves.

The pressure of eating on-plan all of the time is too much for anyone.

Everybody needs a few meals a week where you can eat whatever you want and as much of it as you want.

That’s how I lost weight eating hamburgers and fries.

Twice a week I treat myself and that makes it a lot easier to stay on plan the rest of the week.

Everybody needs a few meals a week where you can eat whatever you want and as much of it as you want.

Rule #2 is Free Meals are not Cheats. They’re a part of your program. Have 2 a week.

Rule #3: Your Diet Must Be Delicious and Satisfying

Do These 2 Things or Your Diet Will Fail from The Fix Gym on Vimeo.

This will derail your diet faster than anything else, so listen up, this is important;
If your diet is not delicious, satisfying, it will fail.

Not to mention that eating food that isn’t delicious and satisfying is torture.

Don’t torture yourself, it doesn’t work plus you don’t have to.
You can lose weight and still eat delicious and satisfying regular people food

Working on your body should be a celebration, not torture.

Working on your body should be a celebration, not torture.

Plus, life is just too short not to enjoy what you eat.

Rule number 3 is your diet has to be delicious and satisfying.
…it also doesn’t hurt if it’s fast and or easy.

And that’s it.

I built my plan on the foundation of those 3 rules and I’m blown away by the results.

Of course, I’m only about halfway to my goal, but I’m not sweating time right now.
I’m just loving my program and I hope you that you are too.

P.S. If you know someone that’s struggling with their program, share this with them. You could change their life.
