In this blog post you are going to discover the 3 fundamental components needed to transform your body. These components are simple in nature, yet very effective. If you get these 3 core components right, you will get your dream body sooner than you may think.
Maintaining A “Diet” That Actually Works
I’ve said it before and I will say it again, diets don’t work. Not if you are looking for long term results.
In the words of MJ Demarco, “The word diet implies temporary. It implies failure. It implies whatever you’re doing for 3 days, or 3 weeks, will not become habit or a part of your lifestyle.”
That’s why the most successful diet is not a “diet” at all.
Its a lifestyle change.
You have to change the way you eat if you want to lose weight. There is no way around this.
Changing the way you eat is the only way you will be able to maintain a diet, or way of eating, that actually works.
Start by moderating your calories.
For the next 24 hours write down EVERYTHING you eat. The next day cut your calories by 300. This will be enough to get the scale moving in the right direction.

Training To Get Lean
Getting your diet right is just one step in the right direction. You also need to make sure you are training to get lean.
That means you need to cut out the long hours of cardio and start doing some sort of resistance training.
This can be done with free weights, bands, or even your own bodyweight.
Where the resistance comes from really doesn’t matter. What matters is that you are putting tension on the muscles.
That’s what forces them to grow and become more defined.
And yes ladies, this applies to you too.

Finding a Way To Hold Yourself Accountable
This is the secret sauce right here.
It doesn’t matter how great your eating plan is, if you don’t hold yourself accountable you will never get results.
One of the best ways to hold yourself accountable is to track EVERYTHING.
It has been proven time and time again that people who track their weight and food intake on a regular basis are more likely to not only lose weight, but to keep it off.
Always remember that what gets measured gets improved.
So if you want to improve your body, start tracking your workouts and your food intake.
