We started our new program… “Lose 2 Jeans Sizes in 6 Weeks” yesterday.
People are really excited! Two jean sizes is a BIG DEAL.
Not only will they be participating in group workouts at Urban Fitness, but they will also be responsible for monitoring their diets.
They’ve each received a comprehensive nutrition plan, covering daily meal plans that take hours to prepare. Shopping lists that will require multiple trips throughout the week to several grocery stores.
See, this isn’t as complicated as all of that.
If it was, no one would want to do it!
They were provided a simple nutrition plan that focuses on one *really* important concept.
Eat foods with fewer ‘ingredients.’
Eat steamed carrots, instead of carrot soup.
Choose fresh instead of canned.
Select seasoning instead of sauces. (And check the ingredients on the seasonings, because some of those aren’t awesome, either.)
Make a list when you go to the store, and stick to it. Avoid buying things that will tempt you, so when you get the munchies at 11pm, there aren’t any poor choices available to you.
Eat better, and you may not even *get* the munchies--- because you feel full longer.
People think that healthy eating is complicated. That it’s going to cost more, or create more work, or require some sort of difficult chart to track every single calorie.
It doesn’t have to.
With a simple nutrition plan, that places the focus on foods that people can easily obtain and prepare, combined with workouts designed specifically for this group, we expect some amazing results.
It’s going to be a bit of work, yes.
It’s going to require a bit of discipline, FOR SURE.
But two jeans sizes in 6 weeks?
For those kinds of results, that’s hardly much to ask.
And we aren’t alone in thinking that.
We have a group of dedicated, excited people who are all ready to show us just what success looks like.
We think it’s going to look like a whole lot of new wardrobes.
