“Billy Mack is a detective down in Texas, You know he knows just exactly what the facts is, He ain’t gonna let those two escape justice, He makes his livin’ off of the people’s taxes.” – Steve Millar Band, Go On Take the Money and Run
Or as I like to sing in the shower…
“Craiggy B. was a trainer up in Canada way, You know he knows what the facts is, eh? He ain’t gonna let you struggle with weight loss, He makes his livin’ off your successes.” – Bally Mack & The TT Band, Go On Do TT Workouts Because You Never Have to Run
Hahaha…hope you enjoyed that silly start to your Sunday. Now I sing that song to you, off-key of course, for a good reason. You need to be the Billy Mack of your diet.
You need to know exactly what the Facts Is.
In 2009, Men’s Health magazine reported on a groundbreaking study that found when people used a food diary, they lost 3.5 pounds more fat than folks that didn’t write down what they ate.
And hey, we could all use 3.5 extra pounds of fat loss, especially if it didn’t involve any more diet or exercise.
So that’s your plan for the week, to start writing down everything you eat. You’re going to find some surprising facts, and you’re not going to let your diet escape justice.
You might find that you’re ‘forgetting’ the after-work or late-night cookie that slips into your diet. That might be what is holding you back. After all, you do my short, burst workouts, you eat a high-protein diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, and you’ve kicked sugar to the curb…but then we sometimes forget that it slips back in.
It’s proven. It works. Monitor your diet. If you don’t know what you are eating, then you’re just guessing, and that might get you close to success, but as my old boss at the local garden center used to say, “Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.”
“You must know what the facts is,” say Bally Mack and Craiggy B.
Figure out your weaknesses and then identify two ways to overcome each one of these obstacles. Now the good news is that you don’t have to go to the extremes of the popular, but too-intense-and-impractical “Elimination Diet”.
I recommend you use this Addition Diet, instead. Check it out here and discover how to lose fat by ADDING the right foods. You’ll get the full diet on this page for free:

PPS – And then remember…
If there is junk food in your house, you’re going to eat it. So if you don’t want to eat it, get it out of your house. Otherwise, accept the fact you’re going to eat it…eventually. That’s just the way it is, and that’s how good diets go bad. It’s like putting water on a gremlin after midnight.
You can’t escape the #truth: If it is in your house, you are going to eat it. Get rid of it. Do not rationalize its existence.
And if family brings it in, then put it in a place that is extremely difficult for you to access, like at the back of the top shelf in your cupboard, because out of sight equals out of mind. Research shows the harder it is to access, the less you eat. Stop accepting bad habits and make it the next-best-thing-to-not-being-there-at-all. Everyone justifies their behavior, but until you take responsibility, you will not move ahead.
You can do it. I believe in YOU.
