Weight Loss Secrets from Hollywood Movie Stars - LA Personal Trainer Speaks Out!
In the early nineties I had the opportunity to work with some of the most famous movie stars in the world. As a manager and personal trainer for Kathy Smith and her health club, I experienced first hand the secrets to the stars. Here are a few things they did to look like they do:
1. They cross trained, putting variety into their workout plans.
2. They never ate a lot of white flour foods. Most of their foods came out of the ground. We call them natural foods!
3. 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.
4. They did a lot of stretching: Palates and yoga were very popular.
5. They spent a lot of times outdoors working out: You may be surprised at the number of people who are in better shape tend to exercise more outdoors.
6. Their diets consisted of herb and teas. Alot of natural foods were consumed.
7. They had outside help, including support systems, trainers and groups.
With every program you try, remember it's not about the numbers, it's your approach! Movie Stars are just like you and me. They are no different. They have the same challenges you do, but the difference is you are not motivated by money!
For those who are not movie stars, think about this:
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. 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 e 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. Why do you think you are reading this. The title catered to your instant gratification.
You fall for it and at the end of the day you are more frustrated than ever. Why? Because you are denying the root of your problems.
I have counseled thousands of people over my twenty years 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 in 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 of 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 and every person in 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.
