LA Weight Loss Secrets:
Personal Trainer Shares His Experience
by Greg Ryan, Fitness Expert
In the early nineties I had the opportunity to work with some of the most famous movie stars in the world.
I know you may be fascinated with movie stars, but let me tell you, they are just like you and I. They struggle with weight and motivation like we do. Here is what I have told some of the most famous people in the world and I will tell you the same.
Some of you will not like what I have to say, even though it is the truth. And that may be where the problem of American's health problems lies.
As a manager and personal trainer for Kathy Smith and her health club, I experienced first hand the secrets of the stars.
Here are a few things they did, to look like they do:
- They cross trained: They put variety into their workout plans.
- They never ate a lot of white flour foods: Most of their foods came out of the ground.
Mostly natural foods!
- They were more concerned with their body fat levels than their weight: They concentrated more
on the balance of muscle to fat, rather than their weight.
- They did a lot of stretching: Palates and yoga was very popular.
- They spent a lot of times out doors working out: You may be surprise at the number of people
that are in better shape exercise more outdoors.
- Their diets consisted of herb and teas: A lot of natural foods were consumed.
- They had outside help. Support systems, trainers and groups.
No one wants to give you the truth. My responsibility as a high profile fitness expert, lies not in if you like me, or even if you buy my books. My responsibility lies in giving you straight talk with no sugar coating it.
You want quick fixes to your health problem that has taken years to develop. You get it by purchasing gimmicks that promise you fast results. You fall for it, and at the end of the day you are more frustrated than every. Why? Because you are denying the root of your problems. I have counseled thousands of people over my twenty year tender as a personal trainer, health club consultant and best selling author. And in all my travels, the answers to people's problems with weight come down to one thing: it's a matter of choice!
My approach with people is, either you pay a price now or you will pay a bigger price down the road. I am really tired of dancing around and trying to pat people on the back and say, "It's OK you can do it." When all the while, most I know, are not the least bit serious about their health, and have no idea what they are in for down the road.
If you are on the fence, whether or not to start an exercise and weight loss plan, I suggest you either become hot or cold. None of this luke warm stuff. You, America are on the verge of a health crisis. The longer you wait the more of chance you have of having a disease.
You also have a matter of choice on all these gimmicks out there. Don't waste your money on products that are not long lasting and do not teach you anything. I know you want fast results, but you will just waste your money. Let me remind you, until you deal with your approach to weight loss the other is pie in the sky.
Here are the keys to weight loss:
- Determine HOW you are motivated.
- Determine the REASONS behind the unwanted behaviors.
- Develop a great support system.
- Eat for fuel not for taste.
- Keep being active.
Sorry to be so blunt, but it's time someone started telling the truth... No matter how hard it is to hear.
