Imagine if you could achieve the lean and healthy body that you deserve without ever having to go on a diet again. Imagine if your fat loss came effortlessly and you no longer had to struggle and obsess over calories, carbs, and fats. Think about that for a moment.
I’m sure that one of the thoughts that crossed your mind was, “What kind of liquid potion or magic pill is Scott going to try to sell me?” After all, releasing unwanted body fat takes plenty of hard work.
No worries… I’m not trying to sell you a hyped up miracle in a bottle. I’m trying to ’sell’ (not in the monetary way) you on an idea, an approach,… a concept that can have a dramatically positive impact on your life.
Yes, releasing unwanted body fat takes hard work and effort. But the approach that we will be sharing with you will help you effortlessly put in that effort during your workouts and preparing healthy meals.
This “Naturally Thin” approach will bring a great deal more joy to your fat loss journey and significantly reduce the instances of guilt that’s associated with not following a certain program to a ‘T’.
Note: This approach is not for everyone. If you are a hard core bodybuilder or someone who really enjoys getting down to all the fine details of nutrition and fitness and has no problem sticking to diets, this approach may not completely resonate with you. But at the same time, in a way, you are actually applying the principles that we will be discussing.
I’m sure that you are wondering, “What’s all this talk about living naturally thin?” Allow me to explain…
I recently contacted my friend Marna Thall (Some of you may know her by her maiden name of Goldstein). Marna is one of the motivational experts that I interviewed for the Unstoppable Fat Loss audios.
Marna’s website is called Thin Within and covers issues such as emotional eating while empowering you to live a life free from dieting. Marna’s website has recently received a makeover and is looking fantastic!
The reason that I contacted Marna was to unite with her in an effort to help spread this naturally thin approach as I believe that it’s an approach that you may be craving and an approach that will resonate with you.
Marna and I will be conducting regular podcasts to discus the naturally thin lifestyle and provide you with action steps that you can immediately implement into your day.
Our first podcast, which you can listen to and download by clicking on the audio player at the bottom of this post, is an introduction to the naturally thin lifestyle. The action step is to simply have an open mind as you begin to embrace this lifestyle.
Before you go thinking that I’m against dieting and counting calories, let me assure you that I’m not. Allow me to share my reasons for embracing this naturally thin lifestyle and uniting with Marna.
I have a bit of a natural body builder mindset in me. I think that’s what makes partnering with Marna so awesome because it’s like having two different worlds coming together.
I do believe that it’s a great practice to monitor and record your calories for two weeks so you can have a fairly accurate idea of how much you are consuming throughout an average week instead of just guessing. This is often an eye opener for many people, which is why I highly recommend going through the process.
After all, no matter if you are living the naturally thin lifestyle or following a diet program, calories do matter and it’s important that you have an awareness of your calorie surplus or deficit.
I believe that my background in health sciences as well as the application and education of a variety of diet programs has made it possible for me to embrace this naturally thin lifestyle.
First of all, I’m one of the 2% of the population who is able to stick with a diet program and follow through to the end. I’d say that my education in Sports Psychology has played a key role in this. I’m also among the small percentage of the population that gets a thrill out of manipulating calories and working out in an effort to sculpt my body and burn fat.
I have learned a lot by applying the information from a variety of diet books over the years. I think that’s key. To use diet books as an educational tool rather than viewing them as, “The solution that’s finally going to help you burn your stubborn belly fat.” This only leads to an “End all, be all” approach, which can be very unhealthy.
I have taken something from nearly every book that I’ve read. Even the most outrageous books have some sort of lesson in them.
I believe that it is important to educate yourself when it comes to nutrition and diet. I will continue to read new diet and nutrition books and explore different views and philosophies. I’m certain that there’s enough material out there to keep me busy reading for life.
I’m very open minded when it comes to nutrition. I respect the opinions and views of most nutrition philosophies even though I may not actually follow through with their recommendations. Some views just do not resonate with me while others are much too harsh. But they have their place for the right people and I can respect that.
I haven’t followed a ‘Diet Plan’ for the past two years. I’ve been following the naturally thin lifestyle without even realizing it. I now effortlessly eat well. I don’t need to read labels or count calories. All the years of applying the information that I’ve absorbed has made eating well become second nature to me.
I look at my wife Angie who is basically the living definition of a naturally thin lifestyle. Angie has followed only one diet program her entire life. That was a time when we created a fun little challenge for ourselves to get in tip top shape.
Other than that she lives naturally thin. She’s very active and she’s a mindful eater who listens to her body. She doesn’t restrict herself from eating some junk foods that she enjoys and she rarely over-indulges when she does eat junk food.
I wish that I had Angie’s control at times when it comes to just eating two cookies instead of the entire box. But I believe a big part of it is that she gives herself permission to treat herself daily because the majority of her day is made up of eating really well. I can count on one hand how many times I’ve heard Angie say, “I’m stuffed!” This is Angie’s “Way of Life”.
In my opinion this is what living naturally thin is all about. It’s a way of life and a mindset. This is what we will be discussing in our podcasts. How to create a naturally thin mindset to help you overcome issues such as overeating, binge eating, emotional eating in a natural and fun way.
I for one am really excited to be sharing this kind of information with you and I’m really looking forward to all the amazing conversations that I will be having with Marna during these podcasts.
Our podcasts are going to be kept under 20 minutes to make it easier for you to schedule them into your day. They will also be available for download so you can listen to them while you are being active instead of sitting at your computer.
Take a moment to download our first podcast to your mp3 player and go get active while listening to our introduction to living naturally thin.
