Fit Life with Stephen Cabral

There are only 2 reasons why you may fail when you go on a diet.

#1. The diet either failed you or...

#2. You failed the diet.

Let's assume that you actually chose a diet plan that isn't based on drinking teas, eating berry extracts, cookies, or one of those other outrageously ineffective diet plans that set you up to fail. Let's also assume that the diet you chose is all natural and healthy, as well as the correct fit for your body.

So in this case, then the only possibility of you failing is that you did something wrong while following the plan.

Now hear me out because I know this is not easy for many people to listen to, but it is one of the BIGGEST reasons why I see some people drop weight faster than they ever thought possible while others just stare at them in amazement and wonder why they can't do the same.

So here's where you may be going wrong.

I often find the reason that the people who can't lose weight on an otherwise very effective meal plan pick and choose which portions of the plan they are going to follow.


There's a reason why the diet plan is so successful for others and not you... it's because most true diet plans only work when they are followed according to the total sum of the parts. If you start taking some of those parts away, you are no longer left with a complete diet plan. What you're left with is a half-baked system for getting mediocre results!

If you want to be one of "those people" who hit the ball out of the park when they go on a weight loss program then you need to play by the rules. Don't come up with your own set and then get mad at the diet plan... it didn't do anything.

Instead, you have to realize that cutting out most junk, but still including something like processed wheat can wreak havoc on your weight loss goals.

Something like processed bread can inflame your intestines, increase your cortisol levels, spike your insulin levels, and make you retain water " and you thought it was just a harmless few slices of bread!

That's just not the case when you're truly trying to get your system back in order and lose body fat fast.

So, the next time you blame your diet for falling short you may want to examine how closely you're really playing it by the book.

Committed to your success,
