Typically when someone’s not getting results it’s almost always a result of not understanding the four major pillars of body change—movement, meals, metabolics, and mindset. And usually when people aren’t getting results, it’s usually because they’re putting too much emphasis on metabolics and meals and not enough emphasis on movement and mindset.
That means you need to pay closer attention to rest-based living and your basic daily movement—walking and things like that. Remember, non-exercise associated thermogenesis (NEAT) is the number one thing that we can do to create a sustainable calorie deficit. Most people want to “eat less, exercise more,” or go on a detox, or something like that. If you aren’t getting the results you want, we can almost guarantee this won’t work.
The real thing you should be focusing on is more daily movement through walking and more rest-based living. The other thing we would say is this… If you’re not getting results, then you’re not eating and exercising the right way for you. You have to play metabolic detective. And when you do, it’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when.
The truth of the matter is that some people’s metabolism requires far more walking, meal planning, and so on than others. Your metabolism doesn’t particularly care that it is inconvenient for you to make these changes. So keep playing metabolic detective, and try to be patient and stay disciplined with the process.
