“The Boiling Frog Phenomenon”

The new year is approaching fast and year after year “the new year resolution people” are gung ho about going to the gym and getting in shape for the new year.

We already know 95% fail because of lack of accountability.

“The Boiling Fog Phenomenon” is another reason that the 95% quite after only a few weeks.

As your personal trainer and coach it is my duty to educate you for long term success.

If you’ve ever yo-yo’d on a diet or tried to start an exercise program, but couldn’t stick to it, this one is for you.

The following single bit of information has been a “game changer” for many who used to struggle.

It all boils down to …

“The Boiling Frog Phenomenon”

yoyoboiling_frog2

It’s a psychological phenomenon that dates back to research conducted at Johns Hopkins University way back in 1882.

Here’s how it works.

Imagine you want to cook a frog …

If you throw a frog into a pot of boiling water, it will jump out. But if you place a frog into a pot of lukewarm water and slowly turn up the heat, it will stay happily inside the pot … and before the frog realizes what is happening … you have frog soup.

The human nervous system works much the same way.

If you try to introduce a radical change in your life, your system fights back – much like the frog jumping out of the pot of boiling water.

yoyoboiling-frog

To create lasting change – you simply have to slowly turn up the heat …

Over time, these tiny changes are almost imperceptible to your nervous system, but over time they add up to HUGE transformations.

yoyotransformation3

This is similar to the Japanese concept of “kaizen” whereby one makes small constant improvements that eventually add up and make a radical difference.

Want to see how it works?

Let’s say you want to lose 10 pounds.

yoyo10lbs

Knowing the Boiling Frog technique, you know that making a sudden, dramatic change in your diet and exercise habits won’t likely stick.

It’s too much of a shock to the system.

A smarter way to go is make a more gradual change like this:

Week 1 – Stop drinking canned sodas. Instead drink water.

silhouette-of-people-talking-at-water-cooler-11

That’s it! Don’t do anything else. Just that one change.

Then …

Week 2 – Take long brisk walks every other day

yoyo1walking

And so on …

At the end of a year you’ll have a whole new set of habits and you’ll be a totally different person.

And you know what?

It will stick!

Eliminate Body Fat and Start the New Year the Right Way!

Eliminate Body Fat and Start the New Year the Right Way!

topnew-years-resolution-apple

As we get closer to New Year’s Eve many people are working vigorously on their New Year’s Resolutions.

topnew-years-resolutions
For many, losing weight, quitting smoking, saving money and even buying a new car on their lists.

For others, finding the best ways to eliminate body fat is their top priority for 2010.

Here are some great tip and suggestions to help you keep your New Year’s Resolution this year.

top-try-it

The first and one of the best things you can do for yourself to lose fat is to get your body moving in high gear.

topexercise-1

You need to begin a workout routine that is enough to challenge you without being to hard that you give up on it.

If you are new to exercising altogether you might want to start off with something less intense, such as bike riding or power walking.

Now you need to think about the foods you are eating.

topnew-year-healthy-475x371

Not only the types of foods but also the portions you are eating as well.

You need to be able to work off more calories a day than you are consuming on order to begin burning some of the body fat you have.

There are several low fat recipes you can find online so you can still eat your favorite foods.

top-recipes

You need to be drinking at least 10 glasses of water every day.

Water benefits your overall health, it allows your system to cleanse itself and helps to wake up your metabolism and get it working faster and harder.

Try drinking a large glass of water before every meal.

This will help you to eat smaller portions because your will feel full.

Avoid eating prepared meals, instead spend a little time preparing your own fresh meals every day.

This will lower the amount of sodium you are consuming, the salt and fats.

topshutterstock_360504521

If you are going to eat chicken you should boil it first to eliminate some of the unnecessary fats.

Say goodbye to the skin of the chicken as well.

Combining the above mentioned tips will help you eliminate body fat.

top-eathealthy

However, in order for you to be able to keep the fat off you need to continue eating healthy and exercising regularly.

It is important that you take pride in yourself and put your health on the top of your list of priorities.

Start out the new year with you as your top priority.
