    Gateway habits to speed up fat loss

    Harness the power of gateway habits to boost your consistency with less effort.
    🎉 Win a goodie bag starter kit and a scholarship to the Lean with Plants program! 🎉
    Challenge runs from Friday the 5th ➡️ Monday 8th August 2022 (CST)
    My definition of “gateway habits” are small, easy habits that have a HUGE knock on affect to other behaviour.
    They’re like gateway drugs. Once you start, the harder stuff is the next step (although unlike taking drugs gateway habits make way for POSITIVE behaviour!!)

    How Kezia lost 50 lbs while spending less time and effort cooking!

    How Kezia lost 50 lbs while spending less time and effort cooking!

    Kezia lost 50 lbs (and counting) while spending less time in the kitchen and making her system easy.
    Here’s what she said:
    “in January when the doors were open for LWP I wasn't quite ready to jump in, I felt like I had all of the knowledge and understanding and I could do it on my own. So I decided to give myself some time to try it alone. Alas, I was able to eat the right things but then weekends would come and my consistency would fly out the window. So here I am signed up for LWP this round and already just investing the money in it is giving me the push I need to practice my consistency and reach my goals!” (July 2021)
    Since then she’s focused on layering habits like her home habit, then weekends, then eating out.
    It’s crazy what can happen with small, consistent action and learning to trust yourself again.
    If you want to experience this for YOUR weight loss, then join Lean with Plants!
    We’re open for enrolment very soon.

    Using the tiny step method

    Using the tiny step method

    Making faster progress isn’t about stricter diets and more discipline, it’s about taking consistent action steps that move you closer to your goal.
    The problem is we get tired, bored, lose motivation or give up, or (insert excuse here) and progress stalls or goes out the window.
    This isn’t a flaw with YOU, it’s a human character trait that keeps us alive, we’re kinda designed to choose the path of least resistance to conserve energy and constantly innovate… BUT that’s not super helpful when we need to say no to oreos and YES to broccoli. 😭🥦
    The good news is instead of working against it, we can hack motivation by using tools like the next tiny step method to KEEP moving forward, even in our worst moments.
    In this episode I share exactly how to use the method to find your next tiny step, commit to when you’ll implement it, and use momentum to make your next actions easier and more likely. Yah!!
    This method was developed by Richard Ralston who is a mentor, friend, and amazing human, so check out more about him below 👇
    https://richardralston.com/
    A lot of these concepts were also inspired by James Clear and Greg Mckeown and you can find the links to their books below👇
    Essentialism - Greg Mckeown
    https://www.amazon.com/Essentialism-Disciplined-Pursuit-Greg-McKeown/dp/0804137382
    Atomic Habits - James Clear
    https://jamesclear.com/atomic-habits
    We use this method in our Progress PODS in Lean with Plants and it’s helped our members see phenomenal results. If you’re not making the progress you want to on your weight loss journey, why not join our fam, and start taking leaps and bounds with the tools to make it easier and a community to support you a long the way.

    Everything I’ve learned about eating healthy in America

    Everything I’ve learned about eating healthy in America

    After traveling the United States for 2 months I’ve got some thoughts about eating healthy (and not) here and I wanted to share them with you!
    This episode is really just a conversation about processed foods, huge billboards that pull you off the highway, the price of cherry tomatoes and how to set up your environment to promote the behaviours you want to cultivate.
    There are some fascinating things about human psychology and behaviour that we can learn about shaping habits from McDonalds, as counter intuitive as that sounds!
    If you found this episode helpful and have a practical application, send me an email, dm, or message in a bottle so I can geek out about it too!
    See you next week for another episode.

    How to make a weight loss system that is EASY, OBVIOUS, and ATTRACTIVE - Instagram LIVE Replay

    How to make a weight loss system that is EASY, OBVIOUS, and ATTRACTIVE - Instagram LIVE Replay

    I struggled with my weight for almost 10 years. I was miserable and unhappy and after many failed diets, too many rules and too much restriction, I thought it was time to do something that was sustainable, easy, obvious and attractive! That's when I finally found a solution that worked for me. I was able to lose 40lbs and become the leanest I have ever been if my life even after having 2 kids!  The method I'm going to be talking about is tried and tested across my course Lean with Plants where hundreds of women have managed to lose weight just by using the same systems.
     
    Learning about how weight loss works is a small piece of the puzzle. You may know what you should be doing, but it's implementing what you know that's the hardest part!  The missing piece for a lot of women is building a strong habit foundation on a consistent basis that help you become the kind of person who is able to accomplish your weight loss goals.

    Do you struggle to stay on track even though you know what to eat? Do you feel you have an all or nothing mindset and once you fail, you revert back to old eating habits? In this episode I'm going to discuss why habits are so important, and how to use them to build systems that make your weight loss easy, obvious and attractive so you can become more consistent and finally start shedding those pounds!
     
    Remember this is not a bout willpower,  it's not about someone else being better at it than you. It's about finding a system that works for for you! You are not broken and you are certainly not a failure. There are many different ways of implementing new systems and habits that can work for you. Listen to this episode so  I can give you the kickstart you need to finally have the food freedom that I now have.

    I also take some questions at the end! I hope the Q&A is super helpful for you!
