Are You Part of the 5% or the 95%?

The New Year brings new diets. People are eager to start Whole30, intermittent fasting, keto, some type of cleanse or magic shake… you name it! You’ll also see many gyms and trainers offering challenges and guarantees that you will lose a certain number of pounds in a certain amount of time. But at what risk to your health? There are so many gyms and coaches out there that are transformation picture hungry and will put you through the most outrageous diets just to get you to lose weight so they can get your picture to use for advertising. The thing we never see with those transformation pictures is where those people are at weeks or months after losing all that weight. Unless they are part of the 5%, they gained all that weight back (and then some) and feel like a complete failure, when in reality, that coach/gym failed them. They set that client up for disaster with unhealthy and unsustainable eating habits, leaving them worse off than before!


Why you should focus on finding your sustainable eating habit vs. dieting:

Weight regain statistics:

Within 1 year 70% of people gain the weight back.

Within 2 years, 85% of people gain the weight back.

Within 3 years, 95% of the people gain the weight back, which means, diets have a 95% failure rate.

Out of those 95% of people, 2/3 of them end up gaining back MORE weight than they lost!

The 5% of people that keep it off, eat in a way that is sustainable for them through all of life’s ups and downs.


This year, instead of going for the quick fix and starting over failed diets from the past, educate yourself on proper nutrition. Don’t look at food as rewards or punishments, rather, focus on food as fuel. Learn what your body needs while at work (carbs) and while at rest (fats). Don’t focus on losing weight, reprogram your brain to focus on getting healthier and stronger. Once you change the way you think about food, learn to be patient, and trust the journey, the changes will start to happen. Focus on finding your discipline that will get you to the 5%.
