Jose: "I Never Felt Worthy of Lifestyle Change"

Jose had already lost 40 lbs when he approached me for guidance. He was stuck at 198 lbs and had no clue how to break the plateau.
Today he is maintaining the best shape of his life at 186 lbs!

Getting Over Plateaus

Jose thought he was never ‘good enough’. He was never ‘fit enough’. His self-criticism had followed him for many years making it extremely hard for him to see the good parts of his journey.


The Solution

  • Jose had under eaten and over exercised for his first 40 lbs before we began working together.
He learned that food could fuel powerful workouts. Doing an hour of cardio per day would have to be maintained for his best shape. This is far from sustainable.
  • Plateaus caused him to yo-yo and regain the weight.
Strategically increasing intake through the process and carb cycling, he avoided the dreaded plateaus and stayed motivated.
  • Self-worth and never being satisfied was Jose’s achilles heel.
Through the process, Jose understood if he wasn’t happy at 40 lbs lost before, then he would never be happy even if he was in the “best shape of his life”. He started to speak words of affirmation through his journey instead of self-hate. Through this action, he learned that perfection was not reachable. ‘Being his best’ was what mattered most.
