It’s Christmas time. People are buying gifts and people are looking for ways to save money.

Let me help you.

Stop buying “detox” products. They don’t work.

I repeat…they do not work.

Yes, there are “toxins” in the air but I’ve got great news for you…

If you have skin, a pancreas, a liver, kidneys, and drink water as well as eat a diet containing all the various micronutrients your body could ever need, you are detoxing 24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, for your lifetime.

Just because you binge eat or eat food you normally don’t eat, over consume on alcohol, or the various other reasons why one would “detox”, doesn’t mean the cayenne pepper, lemon juice, wheat grass, kale, fairy dust remedies will work because well, they don’t.

Try this: Ask the people selling you these products exactly “toxins” are they getting rid of, the mechanism of action that it does it, and is it superior to the bodies high-powered system. Ask for strong evidence supporting their claims.

My guess is they can’t provide it.

Oh, what about “all the weight” that was dropped? – Sure, you’ll lose weight while “detoxing” because you are consuming less calories than normal. Is it sustainable? No. It’s mostly water weight to begin with anyway.

See, I just saved you $49.99.

The beginning of the new year is essentially the Black Friday of the fitness industry. Everyone is rushing to find something new and exciting and every fitness professional under the sun is trying to lure you in with great deals and opportunities.

With that in mind, I want to make a few recommendations.

  1.  Don’t take on too much too soon. Despite what you may have heard, you don’t need to go to the gym 6 days per week and eat salad all day every day to lose body fat. Start with a minimum effective dose. Though this may result in more rapid results initially, this type of plan is destined to fail because is it ultimately not sustainable.Instead of trying to do as much as you can tolerate, my suggestion would be to do as little as possible while still making progress. In terms of fat loss this might mean starting to work out 3 days per week and having a much more moderate calorie deficit.

    While this might provide slower results in the short term, it will be more SUSTAINABLE in the long term.

  2. Don’t cut out all of your carbs. SERIOUSLY, don’t do that. Carbs are also required to fuel your hard workouts and are necessary for optimal thyroid function. Calories, not carbs, are the primary driver of fat loss.
  3. Don’t fall prey to cleanses. Just don’t. The results of these are short-term and NOT SUSTAINABLE If the program you’re thinking of doing is associated with any multi-level marketing program, I would suggest you look elsewhere.
  4. Be prepared to do this for the long haul. If you want for your results to stick around, you have to go into a lifestyle change with the mindset that this is going to be forever because the second you start to go back to what you’re currently doing you’re also going to go right back to how you currently look.

Great bodies are built over months and years not days and weeks. Anyone who tells you differently is selling something.

Hope that helps!

A lot of people get tied to the idea of losing “X number of pounds per week” when, in reality, we don’t really have any influence over how much weight our body decides to lose at all.

The only thing we do have influence over is the BEHAVIORS responsible for bringing about those outcomes.

So there are really three lessons here…

  1. While it will never seem fast enough, if you’re making any progress (regardless of how small it is) it is still good progress.
  2. Focus on the things you can control (behaviors) and stop fixating on the things you can’t (outcomes). Do those things with relentless consistency.
  3. Be patient. If you’re doing what you need to do, and the results are coming slowly, you will eventually reach your goal. But it is going to take time. Accept this.
