Delay the Start of Your Diet for Significant, Sustainable Results

Ep 197 - WordPress

It’s no secret that when we begin a diet we want our results fast – like yesterday kind of fast.

If only…

In his nearly 10 years and 1,500 one-on-one coaching client career, Paul has become known for being the guy that delays the diet timeline in favor of achieving significant, sustainable results.

This approach, what he calls the pre-diet maintenance phase, has been the most influential factor in helping thousands achieve long-term, sustainable results, yet, it’s also the biggest point of conflict and contention when discussing short and long-term plans with his clients.

In today’s episode, listen in as Micheala and Paul enjoy a conversation about the pre-diet maintenance phase, specifically covering the immense value it provides, why Paul believes it’s essential for sustainable results, and how to go about implementing one in your own weight-loss journey. 

Sick of feeling stuck in the weight loss-regain cycle hopping from one diet to the next without lasting results and ready to not only lose the weight and keep it off for good but also become the most confident, loving, and sexy version of yourself who puts her own needs and self-care first…?

You’re not alone.
