What do weight loss successes have in common?
Let’s imagine you have 200 people, 100 of them try to lose weight and are successful, another hundred of them try to lose weight and are unsuccessful.
And what we when we look at all of them and what they did we find out that of the hundred that are successful, 94 of them did one thing, and almost nobody in the other group did that one thing, almost everyone who failed, failed to do the one thing that almost all of the successful people had in common.
Wouldn’t it be powerful? Wouldn’t you want to know what that one thing is? All right. Now the beautiful part about this. What successful dieters have in common is they have a bunch of things in common.
And so we’re going to look at that. And this is where the whole quote knowledge is power comes from. I’m going to tell you what successful dieters do differently to succeed. And then we’re going to look at what the underlying concept or principle is, that explains the success in the next video. Alright, so let’s get right into it. Starting with probably the most boring thing in the world. Gotta love that right?
Go up and then like Bring it out. Alright, the most boring thing in the world telling you what you already know, right? So, I don’t know if you’re a man or a woman watching this video, but I can say with a good amount of certainty, if you’re a man, there’s about a 50% chance that you overeat at mealtime.
Alright, if you’re overweight, there’s a very good chance that you overeat at your meals
and you know it, I’m not telling you anything new here.
Likewise, if you’re a woman, there’s almost a 50% chance that you overeat for emotional reasons. And I’m not guessing at this, this is just what women say who are overweight and part of the reason why they’re overweight.
Alright, so men over your meal time, women, overeating for emotional reasons. So if these are problems, we can now kind of do something to fix them.
And whether you’re a man or a woman, if you’re overweight and you’re trying to lose weight, you probably know that a big fat part of the problem is that you are snacking too much and you’re too inactive.
So the rocket science of weight loss says, maybe we need to not overeat so much. Maybe we should not go anywhere near food when we’re emotional. Maybe we should snack less. And maybe we should be more active.
You know this already.
Not a big, probably no light bulbs or eureka moments there. So let’s get into some of the stuff that you might not know or might not know terribly well.
Alright, we’re reserving the stuff that you’re aware of that you don’t know for the frequently asked questions, because to be honest, about 90% of the questions I get are just this type of stuff.
It’s like, Nick, I’m wondering if XYZ is true. And it can come from left field and it can be incredibly obvious, which is why I’m creating this training so that hopefully in the future, you have fewer questions about basic weight loss knowledge, and I have to answer a few questions about basic weight loss knowledge.
Alright, so we’re looking at a whole bunch of data in this video and then we’ll look at the underlying concept in the next one. So now here’s the fun stuff.
So these are things that you’re probably unaware that you know, maybe you suspect that they’re true. Alright, so when we’re looking at, I just want to get the numbers right for you here.
So when we look at the stand up checklist, first off, I created this to help you to kind of give you a blueprint for success. So when we talk about training, so of the people that lose weight and keep it off, about 90% of them, train for one hour, per day, or more. Okay, 90%, nine of nine out of 10 people that lose a good amount of weight and keep it off are training an hour a day.
Now, that might sound like a lot. And to be honest, I think that sounds like a hell of a lot. I don’t get even close to that. But that’s what successful dieters do. All right. So you might you don’t have to do this much. But a lot of them are just overshooting. They’re doing a bit too much. Okay.
But it’s good to know that right?
Like, if you’re thinking man, I’m just gonna, you know, train for 10 minutes a day or I’m going to train for two hours a week. That’s not going to cut it. That’s not what successful dieters do in practice, they actually train a hell of a lot more than you think.
And you don’t have to train this much again, if you do if you’re a little smarter about it if you’re better with your time management, but the point is, that’s the fact
90% train for an hour a day.
Wow. Okay, also, just about all of them. So 94% increase both their activity in general and overall consistency.
Overall, so remember, you know that you’re probably too inactive. Guess what, just about every frickin died or that is successful. Every person that loses a good amount of weight and keeps it off is living a more active lifestyle.
So Something’s got to give right?
We talked about finding time, probably more time doing a bit of physical activity in the morning and a little bit less time watching the TV at night.
And then also when it comes to diet.
So remember I’m sorry, net, but just just for your reference you probably thinking what is net, but that’s non exercise, physical activity.
Things like walking your dog.
Okay? And then no surprise here, most likely, you know, you’re unaware that you know it or you know it, you know that you know it, but 98% improve their diet in some way. Okay, we’ll talk about what constitutes a dietary improvement in the future.
But just now know that three things are probably going to change, you’re going to be doing a lot more higher intensity training, you’re going to be doing a lot more activity in general, and you’re definitely going to be improving your diet in some way.
Okay, and then here’s the like
the last if the last stuff was fun, this is the really fun stuff. So hopefully, well, if you know these things good on you. You’re smarter than most people who are probably watching this video, if you know all of them, that’s friggin amazing, you’ve been studying this stuff and good on you.
That’s amazing. If you don’t know this stuff Don’t feel bad. Most people don’t know it. All right. If you’ve seen some of my stuff before, you might have seen me reveal some of this information. But, you know, rarely do you get it all in one place.
So let’s go back to our stand up checklist. So the difference between being sleep deprived or very tired and awake and happy and alert and healthy, is actually about a 500.
We measured kilocalories you just a quick aside, we have so calories are a unit of energy we have actually scientists usually prefer to use jewels.
And when it comes to calories, you might see a big ca L, which is supposed to be the equivalent of a cow, which is equal to 1000 small calories and things will be mislabeled all the time.
So like, generally, if you’re looking at a label for a for any food or something, you’re going to find that it says either with a big C, or a little C, or a K cow. And sometimes they’ll even instead of it being 1000 calories equals A kilocalories will just treat calories as kilo calories.
So it can be awfully confusing when you get into calorie counting. But don’t worry about that for now. Just the main thing to think is here is this is about a seventh of a pound of fat.
Okay, so people who sleep more, eat less.
Again, there are about 3500 kilocalories in in one pound of fat. Okay, so if we look at this if you’re sleeping more at night, the reason for that is primarily because you are awake less so instead of staying up super late and being sleep deprived when you have no willpower.
You know where you get the munchies You eat a bag of potato chips and all that shit happens if you go to bed earlier, you know, before you’re in that state, you end up eating less throughout the day, your hours awake, less eating is just kind of like the simple way to look at it. All right, and over the course of a week, that’s about a pound difference in how much in energy intake.
So if you just moved from being a sleep deprived zombie to a happier, healthier, well rested individual, you can lose weight just by sleeping it off, essentially. Another fun thing.
So if we look at our pyramid here, things that work, weight loss and getting too easy and automatic. Most people who lose a bunch of weights, I don’t know if I have percentage here. I don’t have a percentage for this one. But it’s it’s a really, it’s more than 50%.
Watch less tv.
Again, if you’re doing things in the morning, if you’re making time to do the most important thing in the morning. That’s going to shift off some of the stuff that’s later in the day. Which is usually like TV time.
So almost all successful people that lose weight and keep it off, watch less TV. Another thing that is, it shouldn’t be too shocking but it’s a lot harder to lose weight than it is to this is a so greater than less than sign in mathematics.
So this is harder, losing weight is harder than staying lean. Alright, so essentially the journey if you’re going up to here to autopilot, it’s going to be harder getting to autopilot than it is to stay at autopilot right eventually becomes easy and automatic.
But losing weight, which requires an energy deficit, or fewer calories coming in overall, is a lot harder to do then maintaining energy balance, right which just kind of makes sense.
We’ll get more into that and the energy balance video, but just know that the journey getting too easy and automatic staying lean is A lot harder than actually just staying lean once you’re there.
So expect a bit of expect a bit of work when you’re losing weight, but then maintenance should be a hell of a lot easier.
Okay, next up, we have that remember we had the quality of life, just about every person who loses a bunch of weight.
I mean, it’s, it’s a crazy number. I don’t think I have it here. I think it was close. It was in the high 90s for the present, but people have more energy, greater mobility.
They have better mood, more confidence and better health.
So just about everybody who loses a good amount of weight and keeps it off, feels better overall, in in, in essentially most aspects of life.
Alright, so people are feeling a lot better than looking better. The journey is a lot harder than getting here. Once you’re here and You know, people become better rested, and life just improves.
Alright, so this is some of the stuff that a lot of people don’t know. That is very helpful to know. It’s like, Well, okay, well, I’m probably going to be watching less TV because I’m making more time to move and things like that, but it’s going to be worth it because my health, my confidence, my mood, my mobility, my energy, all those are going to improve, and I’m going to be better rested.
Alright, so some really good things to look forward to here. And we’re going to talk about all that fun stuff in the next video, like the underlying concept when we have concepts mindsets and actions.
Well, we’re going to look at the underlying concept for weight loss in the next video, which is energy balance, so I can’t wait to see you there. And then suddenly, a lot of this stuff is just going to click, it’s going to make sense, you’re gonna have that Eureka, like, Ah, now I understand why, you know, people lose weight on low carb diets and low fat diets and low meat diets and why Basically, any diet can work.
But they’re not going to work for everyone all the time.
So I really look forward to seeing you and giving you some strong clarity in the next video.
