Ultimate Body Transformation Solution – So Much More Then A Diet!
Hi guys hope you’re happy and healthy
It’s now the 16th day of my 12 week Ultimate Body Transformation Contest where 120 contestants (including myself) are following my new ‘Ultimate Body Transformation Solution’ – 5 Pillar Success Solution:
- Mind Set
- Goal Setting
This program is not a quick fix diet, it’s a lifestyle change! Throughout my new book I illustrate why the importance of building health from the inside out using an overall holistic lifestyle approach is the key to looking great on the outside!
A Sustainable body transformation doesn’t happen by magic – Eating healthy natural wholesome foods, training hard but smart and implementing the correct lifestyle modifications is essential to achieving a toned, strong, healthy, functional body. But it does involve taking responsibility for yourself, having a plan, taking action, and being Consistent and Patient!
When most people set the goal to improve their bodies, they decide to begin by getting on a diet and exercise program. They figure that if they make some simple changes to their dietary habits and start exercising regularly, results will come.
But, as they do this, they’re really only looking at half the equation.
In order to achieve success and make a complete body transformation, you need to take a much more holistic approach, using a proven system that works. The system is:
- Mind Set & Attitude
- Goal Setting & Taking Action
- Nutrition – You Are What You Eat
- Exercise – Resistance & Cardio
- Transformation Lifestyle
Once you apply this 5 pillar success formula into your life you will take your health and physique to another level! You may have to come out of your comfort zone, but the return is well worth the hard work.
We kick started the contest with our fit Mind-Fit Body Seminar which really did get our contestants pumped and fired up for the next 12 weeks!!
I believe your Mind Set and Attitude are very powerful tools. Whatever your goals, you must realise that having the right mind set, believing in yourself, having positive Thoughts and being able to handle your Emotions and State will play a huge part in your transformation success. This is where Baiju Solanki comes in, He’s an expert in this field and has helped me in my personal and professional career.
Baiju Solanki http://www.baijusolanki.com/ speaker trainer and performance coach ran the seminar which focused on mind set and attitude. Baiju went through tools and techniques that the contestants can all use when they come up against challenges over the 12 week program.
People often start off with lots of enthusiasm and the will to succeed but history shows that after a few weeks life gets in the way and you start finding excuses why not to finish a program. The key aspect dealing with your mind set is understanding your emotions, as when you deal with your emotions you perform better and thus get better results.
Baiju Also spoke in great detail about..
- How to get from I can’t to I can, and what emotions facilitate this
- How to set goals with PURPOSE
- The results focused triad
I also spoke and answered questions about Nutrition. I explained to everyone that this is not a sprint and it takes time to build true health and everyone is different on the inside (hormones, metabolism, biochemistry) as much as we look on the outside and rate of progress will differ from one to the next. You have to take into account gender, body type, internal environment, mental, emotional and physical stress levels.
I warned all the contestants that Initially most of them will be going through an Adaptation – Detoxification phase which can last up to 4 weeks. They may not see to many changes on the outside – bodyweight/bodyfat %/muscle tone – straight away. If someone’s diet has been mainly sugar, grains, wheat, dairy, alcohol , processed food for a long time there will be a lot of stress, toxicity, and inflammation in the body.
Once you start to cut these down or out of you nutrition plan you may get a lot of cravings and symptoms i.e. headaches, sickness, low energy, gut issues etc which can be very off putting, but you have to get through this and let the body adjust and rebalance. You don’t want to feed your addictions! You’re be going through a big detox, metabolic transitioning -balancing of the blood sugar levels etc and its vital to be as clean as you can. giving your organs (liver, colon) and the body all the help it can!
I told them to keep focus on their End Goals always. The lean muscle tissue will build and the fat will burn all in good time. The last 6 weeks your see a lot more results from the outside then the first 4 – 6 weeks!
I see so many people start a new diet and exercise program and expect to see results almost instantaneously. They want everything right now. But to truly create body balance and strip away the body fat, you have to put the work in; it will not come straight away. Just like you didn’t gain that 20lbs overnight, you simply cannot expect to transform the way you look and feel overnight either.
If you lose sight of your goals after a few weeks because your weight its dropping, the chances of succeeding will be slim to none.
Patience is a big characteristic that everyone needs to have because without it, you’ll constantly be falling off the workout bandwagon and yo-yoing on and off your nutrition plan. The sooner you can accept that it will take some work and time for you to reach your goals, the sooner you will find yourself on the path to success.
Throughout the weeks i will be posting updates/videos on my twitter & blog on how all the contestants are progressing. I will also be keeping you up to date on my own transformation: what I’m eating, how my training is going and the challenges I’m facing while I’m trying to get in the best shape of my life. So keep posted !
