On today’s show Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy had on Dr Elizabeth Lombardo who explained to our listeners that the secret to staying compliant to your fitness and exercise program is to get a smaller “BUT” She says we all know that exercise is important BUT we always come up with an excuse not to do it. She explains that the missing ingredient to your fitness or weight loss program is your brain. You have to change how you think in order to lose weight and maintain the weight loss. Some great tips were: write a list of the pro’s and con’s of exercising vs not exercising; be mindful with your eating; don’t take an all or nothing approach – 5 minutes of exercise is better than no minutes plus the minutes add up over the course of the day. Your goal is to make exercise a daily habit like brushing your teeth – something you do without thinking that is integrated into your life. Check out Elizabeth’s new book A Happy You: Your Ultimate Prescription for Happiness at her website www.ahappyyou.com and find your big “Why” – the motivation that will help you change your behavior for the long run!
