As a man that’s lost 100lbs over the course of his entire journey (33lbs shown in the pictures), what advice do you have to people with a long journey ahead of them like you had when you started?
Get super clear on why you want to achieve this goal and fully trust the system. This takes a lot of patience and your method of measuring your body and keeping a track of the numbers definitely helps in staying on track even when the weight scale doesn’t show any changes.
Also, if there are a few things causing stress in your life which are not fitness related, give them space to resolve before committing to the routine again. I had to learn it the hard way.
There are going to be many challenges and doubts. Most of those doubts have been clarified on this website (and in the comments section). Your coaching style taught me to do my best to find the answer before reaching out, and most times I was able to find them on my own. This taught me to become independent about my nutrition and training. It is harder to learn how to fish rather than just getting it from someone but it is an investment of time and effort in a life skill that will benefit you forever.
There have been so many times when I caught myself fussing about the minor details and then referring back to the main pyramid and reminding myself – adherence is key! I just focused on the adherence part of the pyramid and I am frankly shocked to see the results especially to have a six pack after doing no cardio or crunches!
I won’t lie, this is a hard thing to achieve, but an awesomely enjoyable ride full of gifts, surprises, self-discovery and growth. I wasn’t the smartest and the most consistent in my approach. Heck, I failed so many times I have lost count, but if I can do it so can anyone else.
Thanks again for all your help. I will forever be grateful. You changed my life! 🙂
We were able to keep Darvinder’s training exceptionally basic. He had been following the training programming on the site prior to becoming a client and was happy to keep things as they were. Just click the training tab and take a look at the three-day split to get an idea.
