Here’s the reality of the situation: it’s never going to stop. The attacks, I mean.

As soon as you make it known that you want to take better care of your health, people will start sneering. They will plant seeds of doubt in your mind. They will ask you if it’s really worth it, why can’t you live a little, you know one drink won’t hurt.

It is worth it. You are living – more than ever before. And one drink may not hurt, but it can also be a slippery slope (tequila, anyone?).

The irony of what’s happening is beyond baffling. Here you are, finally dedicated to making a healthy, sustainable lifestyle change. You’ve cut out binge drinking, you’ve stopped mindless snacking, you’ve finally conceded to the fact that “curling” your iPhone to your ear ten dozen times a day does not actually qualify as weightlifting. You’ve quit latenight television to get a few extra hours of quality sleep, and you get up hours before work to hit the gym.

You’d think more people would be pumped for your newfound changes.

But instead, you’re met with resistance. And lots of it.


A fitness program is not considered successful if it’s not sustainable. In other words, your 12-week before/after transformation pictures may be amazing, but what about 2 weeks after the fact? 6 weeks? 12? I think a lot of times we tend to focus too much on the immediate, short-term results rather than taking the long-term view of something and deciding premature that it “works”. A question I like to have my clients ask themselves is, “Can I see myself eating this same way a year from now?” If the answer is no, whatever results you’ve achieved thus far won’t last. Sooner or later (probably sooner, actually) you’ll find yourself backtracking and undoing all the progress you’ve busted your ass for. And oftentimes, you’ll end up in worse shape than when you began. Whoever said that extreme measures – restricted food list, demanding workouts, over-reliance on cardio – was the key to success has it all wrong. GURUS, I’m talking to you. Shame on you. Shame, shame.
