Before I show you how to lower your set point weight and give you the four steps to lasting weight loss transformation I need to acknowledge the elephant in the room.
It is the massive amount of misinformation out there when it comes to weight loss and that special four letter word: “diet”. Count calories. Fat is bad. Force your body to go drill sergeant on you with a zillion crunches as soon as you wake up. Don’t eat white foods. Drink diet shakes all day long. Celebrities with flat abs eat these foods and so should you. Stop the nonsense!
Don’t worry, we are not going to be talking about any of that. Instead we are going to be learning how to lower your set point weight with one simple sentence that will transform your life and your body. Ready to get started? Great, let’s dig in.
Before we learn how to lower your setpoint weight, if you are unsure what that means exactly you can catch up with this article: “What is My Setpoint Weight”
Step 1: Get Your Head Right About Your Lower Setpoint Weight
You would not climb a mountain without bringing the right equipment. Well, losing weight and lowering your setpoint is no different. Luckily we don’t have to climb a mountain but we do need the right mental equipment. And we need to leave behind anything that will weigh us down for our journey. Both literally, metaphorically, and especially emotionally.
Leave behind shame and guilt because it will no longer serve you. Focus on progress instead of perfection and work on taking the simple consistent actions that will add up over time. Habits are far easier to change if you believe in your ability to change so don’t forget to use positive self talk as much as possible.
Step 2: Get The Correct Information Backed By Science To Lower Your Setpoint Weight
The amount of junk science out there is staggering and paying attention to the wrong fad can not only stall your weight loss it can even make you gain back more weight due to how your set point weight dramatically increases when you yo-yo diet! It really isn’t rocket science. Study after study from respected institutions such as Harvard Medical School and the Mayo Clinic point to one obvious fact. Eating lean protein, whole food fats, and large amounts of non-starchy vegetables will lead to lasting metabolic healing and a lower setpoint weight. Can it really be that simple? Yes! I’ll show you how you can learn more about eating to lower your setpoint weight in a bit, but for now let’s move on to step number three.
Step 3: How To Lower Your Set Point With One Simple Sentence
That’s right, there is one little sentence you can use to make sure every choice you make lowers your setpoint weight.
And here is the thing that makes this work so well: Every choice you make in life either raises or lowers your setpoint weight. Everything. If you are stressed that releases cortisol and raises your setpoint weight. If you eat a correctly proportioned SANE meal your hormones will heal and rebalance over time and that will decrease your setpoint weight. In fact many things that we think should help us lose weight, actually raise our setpoint weight like strenuous exercise. Now you know why it’s been so hard to lose weight!
So the one simple question you can ask about everything in life from what you eat to how you exercise is: “Will this raise or lower my setpoint weight?”
That’s it. When you look at life through this simple lens it clarifies each choice and give you more motivation than ever to stick with your transformation plan. I’ll give you the opportunity to learn exactly what lowers and what raises your setpoint weight at the end of this article.
