Hey! We are still going to move forward with the mini-series called “7 SCIENCE BASED SECRETS that simplify fat loss” (as mentioned in our last blog) but this day came up and we had to make a point about it …
How fast does January seem to fly by? We are just a few weeks past the New Year’s Eve Ball dropping. How is 2018 going for you? Let me ask you this:
<h4 class="center">Did YOU make a New Year Resolution?</h4>
<h4 class="center">If so, let me ask you another question: Have you kept it?</h4>
We did a little checking into New Year “resolutions”. We came across a study done just 2 years ago at the University of Scranton. The findings were published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology, and they really grabbed our attention. First, check out Top 5 Resolutions we make:
<th>Top New Year's Resolution</th>
<td>Spend Less, Save More</td>
<td>Enjoy Life to the Fullest</td>
<td>Staying Fit and Healthy</td>
The research findings show that of the resolutions made, ***38% are weight related resolutions***. That means that of all the folks who make a resolution (and we all know there are hundreds of thousands who do) almost 4 of 10 want to LOSE WEIGHT!
Here’s the sad truth though: the study showed that ***only 8% of people are successful*** in achieving their resolution. Ouch! That is a horribly low and very frustrating success rate!
Did you know there is a day called the **“National Ditch Your Resolutions Day”?** Sure, it’s a “fake holiday” but it’s on the event calendar, supposedly based on the premise that **JANUARY 17 is the most common day** for people to give up on their resolutions.
<div class="center"><strong>How sad is this? 17 days in is less than 5% of the way through the year!</strong></div>
The <strong>REASONS people ditch</strong> their resolutions are clear:
- They don’t know exactly what to do – they lack a plan that will
actually work. It’s more than just low calorie or low carb. It’s
about metabolism … and genetics. Seriously!
- They lack accountability. We all do better when we have someone
making a difficult journey with us. Call it whatever you want: a
coach, a partner or a cheerleader. That component is a huge part of
the Lifetime Metabolic Program’s success.
- Lack of results from the start. Good News: The Lifetime Metabolic
Program is specifically designed to off-set that reason for ditching
your resolution. In fact, in this program it is quite common for
clients to lose 20 or more pounds in the first 6 week phase! Of
course, results vary but such a POSSIBILITY oughta grab your
