5 ‘SMART’ Dieting Tips For The New Year

Here we are at the end of our 7 Day New Year’s Jumpstart program! And I want to finish off with an important topic.. What you’re eating. You simply cannot outtrain your diet – no matter how hard you try.

But the thing is that you DO have some hope, IF you take a serious look at what’s going on in your kitchen… And essentially what you’re putting into your mouth!

Now, as you know, I’m a BIG believer in goal setting. And the same can be said for your diet.

It's not enough to say, I plan to eat better in 2017. Because really WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? Share on X

So in order to help you to have a little clarity with this question, let’s discuss how the principle of SMART goals in the key to your dieting success.

 

‘SMART’ Dieting Tips For The New Year – What The Hell Does That Mean?

Let’s break this down, lol. SMART stands for the following:

SPECIFIC

MEASURABLE

ATTAINABLE

RELEVANT TO YOU

TIME BOUND

These 5 things are the backbone to accomplished and completed goals EVERYWHERE. Whether they are fitness goals, life goals, financial goals, whatever…

In the case for your diet, they can be a powerful tool to helping you to make the RIGHT moves to start to see the physical changes you want to see.

 

Specific Dieting Goal:

When I’m telling you to make your diet goals specific, I want you to dig a little deeper than the superficial, “I want to eat cleaner/better/healthier.”

Instead, let’s take a look at what that means.

Do you have a habit of ordering out a lot?

Are you among the first to find your hands in a bag of cookies or chips – and eat them mindlessly?

Is ice-cream your weakness, and one small serving not enough?

Do you find that you don’t EAT ENOUGH?

All of these things are more SPECIFIC, and get to the root of what your current eating habits are (and essentially holding you back).

Changing your goals to may say now, “I want to eat healthier by not ordering out every day, and stop snacking on the chips and cookies,” will find you in a MUCH better position to taking charge of your diet.

And essentially seeing the progress you want to see both in and out of the gym.

 

Measurable Dieting Goal:

For this portion of your goal, I want you to look at how you can now tie a number to the goal to make it a little more realistic.

We’ve established in the example above that limiting eating out, and keeping chips out of the house is one way to get more specific with your goal.

Let’s add another element to the equation that can have you set yourself up for success.

“I want to eat healthier by not ordering out every day and instead save it for once or twice a week. I also want to stop snacking on the chips and cookies, so I will save them for a snack on a cheat day.”

In this case, you are now setting what behavior needs to be changed – but also allowing an element of reward if adhered to.

Having an all or nothing mentality is the quickest way to failing at any goal. Share on X

Make sure that when you ARE setting your goals, you are setting them up in a way to have balance – and success.

 

Attainable Dieting Goal:

It goes without saying that in order to reach your goals successfully, they should be ATTAINABLE.

Now, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t shoot for the stars. Instead, it’s important that you don’t allow yourself to bite off more than you can chew in pursuit of your efforts.

When it comes to ATTAINABLE dieting goals, I want you to look a things through a lens of reality.

Don’t think you can cut out every carb in your diet, and think that’s something you can sustain in the long term. Or if you choose to never eat fat again, but you don’t seem to see your body budging at all.

These things are NOT sustainable. So when it comes to your goals, make sure you are doing things that you can actually accomplish. And will lead to your success over the long term.

 

Relevant to YOU Dieting Goal:

This principle directly points to the WHY behind what you’re doing.

What is your purpose?

Why have you decided that you MUST drop those 10, 20, 30, 50, or 100 pounds?

What does it mean to you to finally SEE THAT as your new reality?

Well, until you identify that driving factor, you’ll always have a small loophole that will allow you to give up at any time.

Purpose prevents this! Having a REASON WHY ensures that you stay ON TRACK with your eating because the prospects of FALLING OFF THE WAGON means you lose everything.

It means you’ll never see that goal come to fruition. However, if it IS so important for you to change your body, that it’s ALL you can think about…

Finding that relevancy is the saving grace to ensuring your success down the line.

 

Time Bound Dieting Goal:

The final aspect of our SMART dieting tips for the New Year is all about committing to a time frame.

A goal without a finish line is a mere wish. Why? IT LACKS URGENCY! Share on X

I like to look at goals between a 4 to 12 week time frame. That’s a good 1 to 3 months to really focus your all on your SMART goals, and get the job done.

You don’t want to think about tackling goals for a FULL YEAR without a game plan or end in sight.

How much MORE successful would you be if you say to yourself something like:

“For the next 4 weeks, I want to eat healthier by not ordering out every day and instead save it for once or twice a week. I also want to stop snacking on the chips and cookies, so I will save them for a snack on a cheat day.”

By just putting on that little time frame can help you to have a better focus in really doing well at that goal.

It allows you to be able to have an end in sight, and keeps you accountable to try your best within that time frame.

Imagine how powerful that is… How driven you’ll become knowing that you can do what you set out for – because you know it’s attainable!

 

It’s Now Time to Make The Most of 2017 – No More Resolutions, It’s All About Action

Over the last 6 days, I have introduced you to the possibilities of what’s to come for you this year.

We’ve discussed the MINDSET shift that has to happen for your body transformation success. We’ve discussed how to properly use cardio to see incredible fat loss while doing less.

I’ve sent you 3 workouts to help you to really kick up your game in the gym.

And have shared with you some of the most crucial tips and advice that you can put into action right here, right now, and create positive change in your body.

But we are only scratching the surface!!

We’ve really only just begun.

 

Starting on January 9th, I’m opening up my Inner Circle Group Coaching program to you, and in a way I’ve never done before.

For the month of January, we are going to do a full 30 day intensive.

  • I am going to take you under my wing and truly COACH you.
  • I’m going to teach you everything I know about what gets results in and out of the gym.
  • I am going to STEP BY STEP show you how to determine the right macros and calories you need to fuel your body, drop fat and gain muscle.
  • I am going to PROGRAM YOUR WORKOUTS FOR YOU, so you can show up at the gym, do your best, and watch your body evolve.
  • I am going to help you to DROP THE GUESSWORK, so you can go on autopilot and get in tune with a program that is results driven.
  • I’m going to reveal to you the whys behind the why of what gets results. All science/NO BS!
  • I’m going to give you the road map to your dream body, your fitness goals, and help you to finally see that you DESERVE to win at this game.

All you have to do is come on board, follow the plan, stay committed, get out of your own way – and dare to believe that you can be successful at this.

 

Then starting in February, we will continue to work together throughout the rest of 2017 as we race towards you finally reaching your ultimate fitness goals.

January is focused on simply building our foundation for change, and solidifying the backbone to what will get you there.

The journey is JUST beginning.

From February onward, you will be graduated into my Inner Circle Group Coaching Program where we will continue to work closely together.

In that program, you will continue to do monthly LIVE workshops with me covering everything from nutrition, to program design and training principles that REALLY work, tips to help you stay motivated and focused on the road ahead, and so much more.

You’ll get your workouts set to you EVERY SINGLE MONTH.

And have me right there by your side – along with our amazing Facebook Group – to make sure you stay accountable and you CONTINUE to do everything that you need to do to accomplish YOUR fitness goals.

Look, the road is going to be long. And the journey not easy!

But you don’t have to travel it alone anymore.

You CAN have a support system right there…

  • Every step of the way,
  • guiding you,
  • motivating you,
  • pushing you forward,
  • carrying you when you feel like you cannot go on…
  • Making sure that YOU set out to do in 2017 what you’ve wanted in 2016, 2015, 2014 or whenever… But still haven’t yet.

All you have to do is take that first step.

 

Basic Level vs. VIP Level – Determine How Much Hands On Support You Need

I want to wrap this up with the final thought of helping you to decide how much support you need – and which level works well for you…

 

The Basic Level is PERFECT for You If:

  • You are already pretty close to reaching your goal.
  • You are VERY self motivated and can follow a plan without needing more hands on assistance.
  • You are VERY focused, and can pretty much work on your own successfully.
  • You just need a guide and plan to point you in the right direction, but want freedom to be able to do what you want/need at any time.
  • You are READY to do the work it will take to reach the next level – and can stay pretty self motivated in the process.

 

The VIP Level is PERFECT for You If:

  • You need more hands on coaching and assistance to really see your goals become your reality.
  • You want a coach in your corner to hold you accountable.
  • You need to have someone to personally reach out to for questions, advice, and guidance whenever you need it.
  • You want to have someone help more in depth with figuring out macros and calories – letting me set them FOR YOU, so you can go on autopilot.
  • You like to be able to submit pictures and stats for feedback about progress and what you need to do to keep things moving.
  • You are sick and tired of trying to do this thing alone – trying and failing over and over – and you’re ready to let someone else guide you like never before.
  • You want to raise the bar, and know that letting go of the reigns is the only way you’ll get there.

 

So now… Here’s the next step – and what you need to do…

It’s time for you to take action.

No more excuses.

No more trying to convince yourself that you ARE NOT WORTHY.

Because you are.

No more looking at everyone else and seeing them be successful at the things you want to do.

Because it’s YOUR time.

And right now, all you have to do is take the simple step of clicking right here…

So we can meet together and finally create the fitness lifestyle you desire, the body you dream of, and the success in this process that you deserve.

363 days left in 2017… How are you going to spend it…?
