Different Way To Lose Weight 

Shorter Logo.jpg

What if losing weight and getting in shape, did not have to be hard?

What if you did not have to...

X  Count calories

X  Measure your food

X  Eliminate whole food groups  

X  Preplan meals 

X  Spend hours working out 

What if you could make losing weight and keeping it off as natural as breathing, so you could have the lean and healthy body, WITHOUT having to sacrifice all the fun stuff in life?​

We Are Following The Wrong Example

In 1992, the year I got into the weight loss field, the obesity rate in the US was 12.6%, today it is over 40%.  It is safe to say that the popular methods to weight loss are not producing results.  Actually, to be more precise, they are not  producing sustainable results for the vast majority of people.  

 

According to the statistics, only around 5% of people who lose weight, are able to keep it off, the rest end up regaining the weight.

 

Currently many fitness professionals are using the example of the 5% who are able to lose weight and keep if off as the example to follow, since they have been able to achieve sustainable results.

 

On the surface that sound like a good idea, after all, they always say, if you want to achieve something find someone who has already achieved it and follow their example.

Let's take a closer look at their example

In my 29 years in the weight loss field I have met many of those people who were able to lose weight and keep it off with the current methods of weight loss and here is how they were able to do it.

 

Their whole life is about fitness, they are constantly worrying about their calories, watching everything they eat, especially high carb foods, like bread and pasta, constantly planning everything they are going to eat each day, of course they can’t have any junk food, and when they do, they feel guilty so they spend the whole next day exercising to burn all the extra calories they ate,  and they spend much of their free time exercising.

 

I am sure you probably know some of those people yourselves, all they want to talk about is fitness.  

 

Is That An Example You Want To Follow?

 

The vast majority of people are not willing to follow their example and I don't blame them.  I would not want to follow their example either.  

 

I rather be overweight and enjoy life, even if is a shorter life, than have a lean and healthy body and have no life, because I have to spend most of my free time planning meals and exercising

 

What is the point of having a lean and healthy body, if you must spend most of your time trying to maintain it and not really enjoy life?

 

It’s like having a vacation home at a beautiful location that you can never go to because you must work all the time to make enough money to afford it.  What is the point of having the summer home?

The good news is that there is a much better example to follow.

These people don’t count calories, don’t measure their food, eat plenty of high carb foods like bread and pasta, and don’t spend hours working out.  On top of that, they hardly ever think about their weight or health and yet they are able to maintain a lean and healthy body no problem.

 

Who are these people?  

 

These are the people who live in healthy regions around the world.  If you look at healthy regions, they don’t do any of the things that 5% does.  

 

So how are they able to maintain such a good shape?

What Healthy Regions Do Differently

There are a few things that healthy regions do differently, but 
unfortunately have been ignored by most weight loss and diet experts.

One of the main things that healthy regions do very differently is how they eat.  If you talk to most nutritionists about the eating habits of healthy regions, they will tell you about the foods they eat and the foods they don't eat.  They completely ignore 3 simple eating behaviors that are part of people's lives in all healthy regions.

 

These 3 eating behaviors have nothing to do with what they eat but how they eat. Did you know that how you eat affects your weight and health as much as what you eat? You could eat the same food, but it could affect your weight and health entirely differently depending on how you ate it.

For example, sumo wrestlers overeat just like any other obese person, that is why they are obese themselves.  However, did you know, unlike typical obese people, sumo wrestlers have very low incidents of strokes and heart attacks?

 

The reason has to do with how they eat. They eat all their food, usually within a 4-hour window, and don't eat the rest of the time.

Come to find out, taking regular long breaks from eating, 16 hours or longer, which is one of the 3 "how to eat" habits people in healthy regions engage in regularly, there are significant benefits to the body, which includes the following:

  • The body speeds up the detoxification process. 

  • It becomes more efficient at burning fat. (great for weight loss)

  • It becomes more sensitive to insulin, which prevents diabetes.  

  • A process called Autophagy begins to take place.  

 "Autophagy is a process of recycling unnecessary, dysfunctional, and mutated cells, and by doing that, it lowers your chance of developing cancer.   During the process of Autophagy, the body also recycles misfolded proteins.  Misfolded proteins are the precursor to all forms of dementia."

How Autophagy worked was such a massive discovery that the cell biologist Yoshinori Ohsumi, who discovered the mechanisms of Autophagy, won the Nobel Prize in Physiology of Medicine in 2016.

You see, proper nutrition has two parts.  Part one is what foods you should be eating and what foods you should be avoiding.  The second part of proper nutrition is how you should be eating.  In other words, how often you should be eating, what it's the main reason you should be eating, and how you should be eating.

Most diets and nutritionists only focus on the first part of proper nutrition and completely ignore the second part.  They are working with only one aspect of proper nutrition, and when you are only working with half of a solution, you have to follow that half pretty close to perfection to see any results.  That is why so many diets are so strict with what to eat and what not to eat.  If you worked with both aspects of proper nutrition, you wouldn't need to be as strict with what you eat.  That is one of the main reasons people can eat plenty of high carb foods in healthy regions, like bread, pasta, potatoes, and rice, with no adverse effect on their weight or health.

The second reason people in healthy regions can maintain their great health so effortlessly is that all the healthy behaviors that help them maintain their great shape are habitual.  In other words, they don't have to think to engage in those behaviors. It's like their weight loss program is on autopilot.

 

Now, look at the healthy behaviors the 5% engage in to lose weight.  Most of those behaviors, like counting calories, measuring their food, preplanning meals, and overly intense workouts, those behaviors can never become habitual because they require thinking. If you have to constantly be thinking about everything you need to do to maintain your results, that could quickly lead to burnout.

The reason I know so much about healthy regions is that I didn't just study them, but I was raised in one

 

I was raised on a Greek island, and when I lived there, thin was the norm, and people lived long, healthy lives free from most of the diseases people suffer from today.  Cancer was a rare disease, and diseases like Alzheimer's did not exist.

The Live Your Way Thin System is the only weight loss system to my knowledge that follows the example of the healthy regions and not the example of the 5%.

What You Will Learn With the Live Your Way Thin System:

Early in my fitness career, I realized that the current weight loss methods were not producing sustainable results, so I looked elsewhere for answers.  To find a better example to follow, I started reflecting on my upbringing since I lived in a very healthy region in Greece and looked at other healthy regions around the world and their habits.

Through my research, I identified 5 healthy habits which have the biggest impact on people's weight and health, of which 3 have to do with how you eat. 

I call them the 5 ancient habits because they used to be part of most human societies in the past, but due to modern convenience and lots of marketing, most modern societies have moved away from them, and their weight and health are paying the price.

The 5 Healthy Habits That Will Change Your Weight and Health For Life 

Training with Fit Ball

first habit

The first behavior has to do with how active you are.  Your body needs to be challenged regularly to maintain its vitality.  However, it does not need to be challenged that hard, like many fitness professionals like to do, to maintain its vitality.

Second Habit

The second healthy behavior is the behavior of taking regular breaks from food, similar to intermitted fasting. 

This habit will make your body more efficient at burning fat, greatly reduces your chance of developing cancer and Alzheimer's, while giving you more energy  just to name a few of the benefits.

Child Eating from Bowl

Third Habit

The 3rd healthy behavior is the behavior of eating only when hungry, at least most of the time, and not too often.  Humans were not meant to be eating 4 and 5 times per day like many diets suggest.  If you look at healthy regions, people don't eat nearly as often.Learning to eat out of true hunger and less often has many benefits including faster weight loss, stop emotional eating, more energy, stronger immune system just to name a few.

Sharing Food

Fourth Habit

The 4th healthy behavior you will be learning is eating every meal slowly and mindfully and stopping when you have satisfied your hunger.  You see, your body knows when it needs to eat and when to stop eating, but you have to learn to pay attention to your body's signals.  By learning to slow down your eating and pay more attention, you will know instinctively to eat the right amount of food without counting calories or measuring your food.  Best of all you will be eating less food without feeling deprived.

Ice Cream

Fifth habit

The 5th healthy behavior has to do with what foods to eat more of and what foods to eat less of.  Of course what you eat does make a difference but by learning how to eat, you don't need to be as strict with what you eat, so no foods are off-limits. 

Food Delivery

Other Habits

Obviously, there are more healthy behaviors you can develop if you like to and we can help you develop them too, but for 99.9% of people, these 5 healthy habits is all they need to develop to achieve the lean and healthy body they want. 

How The Live Your Way Thin System Works

Family Walking On the Beach

There is a famous quote from Bruce Lee, "Knowing is not enough; we must apply.  Willing is not enough; we must do". 

 

That is very true when it comes to sustainable weight loss. The most effective healthy behaviors will not make any sustainable difference in anyone's life unless a person can actually apply them into their lives and live with them.

 

With my Live Your Way Thin online coaching program, I will not just teach you about the 5 most critical healthy behaviors for health and weight loss.  Through a unique and very practical step by step approach, you will learn how to make these 5 behaviors completely habitual and part of your everyday life.

"Knowing What You Need To Do and Actually Doing It, is Two Different Things"

Our coaching approach is based on the Kaizen philosophy. Kaizen is an ancient Asian philosophical system on how to apply change into your life if you want the change to last.

Kaizen, is perhaps the best way to apply new behaviors into your life if you want those behaviors to take root and become permanent and completely habitual.

 

Many very successful people and companies have used Kaizen to implement all the necessary changes to achieve sustainable success. 

One of the most famous companies is Toyota. Toyota used the Kaizen philosophy to go from a company that was going bankrupt to one of the top car manufacturers in the world. 

 

With the Live Your Way Thin Online Coaching System, we use the same Kaizen strategy to help our clients adapt and make completely habitual the 5 healthy behaviors.  That enables our clients not just to lose the weight they want and improve their health, but to maintain the results for life!

Our Strategy That Will Help You Lose Weight For Life!

As you probably already know, your current habitual behaviors are responsible for your current shape.  If you want to change your current shape permanently, the only way you can do that is through permanent changes in your daily habitual behaviors.  The best way, if not the only way to make permanent changes in your daily habitual behaviors, is to work on changing one habit at a time.

The best way to change a habit is to take the habit you want to change or develop, break it down into the smallest action possible and focus on taking that action.

Because the action you are taking is so small, very little motivation is needed to keep taking that action, making it more likely that you will stick with that action long enough to become habitual.  Once an action becomes, habitual, little or no motivation is needed to keep taking that action. 

That is by far the best way to make permanent changes in your daily habitual behaviors. This is how we will help you make all 5 healthy behaviors completely habitual. Thus, the result you will achieve by developing these 5 healthy habits will be easily sustainable.

Main Difference Between Our Approach To Weight Loss and All Others:

The actions most weight loss programs ask you to take in order to lose weight, like counting calories, points or measuring your food, these actions go against human nature and can never become habitual, so you will always need to rely on mental effort to stick with those behaviors.  The fact is, ongoing mental effort usually leads to burnout!  This is why only around 5% of people are able to keep the weight off with the current methods of weight loss.

 

All 5 healthy behaviors that you will be developing through our online coaching program, in order to lose weight and improve your health, work with human nature and with a little practice they can become completely habitual so you will not have to rely on mental effort to stick with them.  Basically, with our approach you will be putting your weight loss on AUTOPILOT!
