The One Mindset Tip You Need To Keep You On Track to Lose Your Gut

How many times have you lost weight…to only put it all back on.

There is a way to stop it from happening. A way to stay consistent on your diet, and lose your gut.

But It can go on for years can’t it? The empty promises of how you WILL lose the weight….and feeling embarrassed by your body.

“I’ll try and do it…” 

The word ‘try’ is interesting. It’s a person’s polite way of saying to themselves or others – that they won’t.

I’ll try and come around the weekend = I’m going to put off my excuse for coming until the weekend 

I’ll try and eat better = I will think about it before I eat what the hell I want 

I’ll try and get to the gym = I’ll leave it as long as I can until something comes up instead. 


This keeps you in the dreaded diet cycle 

You know the one, Usually lasts about 2 weeks and spikes in January and around summer. 

A desperate attempt to make a change, 

Followed by cutting everything out, 

You get a result on the scales 

Followed by despair because you can no longer eat anything other than 1500 calories or your body weight in leaves. 

Followed by defeat and a fairly speedy regression to where you started 

It doesn’t matter how many times you try this method it won’t work. – BREAK THE DIET CYCLE!

Here is how to put a STOP to the cycle.

SET THE GOAL (but we know that is not enough)

To transform your body in a sustainable way it first starts with how you position the task. 

  • Have a clear specific goal.
  • Set a date.
  • Get an objective for that date – lose 10 kg for example 
  • Have a strategy of the next X amount of weeks. Example – I will lift weights x3 times a week  OR I will eat like this Monday to Friday – and like that the weekend 
  • Check in with yourself – are you realistically on track? Is it sustainable?
  • Measure – Every week get on the scales and get feedback off them. What does the number say?
  • Get accountability – Tell a friend, hire a coach, tell someone who cares. I.e Not many people will care you are trying to lose weight
  • Repeat for 12 weeks – you will see incredible results.

But this alone isn’t enough. It’s too logical. Your brain won’t keep to it on a busy Wednesday afternoon when you are offered a piece of cake.


What controls your behavior is the irrational, emotional part of your brain. It needs more than a list of instructions. Without this point, you will have another failed attempt on your belt.

What you need is a VISION.

Attach a VISION to your goal.

Without a vision, there is nothing emotionally attaching you to where you are going. Especially if you have told yourself the empty promises for years your brain won’t respond to the bull sh*t. 

Get clear on this: 

What will you look like?

Who will comment on what you look like? 

Will you be able to carry your self around with confidence?

What clothes will you be able to wear?

Will you be able to go shirtless/topless on holiday for once? 

By creating this visual association you will start to move TOWARDS it – rather than being dragged through another ‘diet’

Anyone can change their body with the right tools – it’s changing the mindset that is most important.

    I’ve known Chris for 7 years in total now. I had a break from training for a few years when my children were young and work took over. I needed to get back to training. Chris is the ultimate professional and has always got the best out of me. He motivates and tailors a programme to help achieve individual goals. This includes exercise, lifestyle and a change in mind set. My body shape is changing again and I feel great! Importantly this is all done in a non-judgemental way and is fun!! I now have the confidence to go to the gym independently too. I can not recommend him and body transformation more highly

    I’ve been training with Daniel Grimes from Body Transformation for about 7 months now and I’ve lost about one stone since then. I feel so much stronger, healthier and in shape than ever before. He is an amazing trainer! I’ve learned quite a lot about training and nutrition from him and have finally found a routine that I can continue to work towards my end goals. Besides the actual in-person training, he keeps in touch between sessions with texts and emails to keep me motivated which is very encouraging. Daniel is really easy to talk to and fun to train with that you would never feel under pressure in his company as gym atmosphere can be quite intimidating for some people. Besides all that Daniel is truly an awesome person who genuinely cares about his clients. Anybody looking for a bespoke training in a friendly yet professional environment with great results I would highly recommend him.

    I have been working with Stuart for just under 3 months. In that time , I have lost nearly 2 stone and have gotten back into a healthy routine. His knowledge of 'what works' really shows. He keeps me focused and his engaging personality makes it a pleasure to work out with him.

    If you're looking for bespoke, personable and professional training, Stuart is the guy for you. From nutritional advice, to adaptable work out plans, he offers all the support and advice you need to achieve your goals. After a back injury, with Stuart’s help a plan of rehabilitation was started, gradually increasing in intensity. Within a month I was completely cured and back to playing the sport I love. Stuart has a vast knowledge of the human body and is very professional and friendly in his approach. I would highly recommend body transformation.

    I worked with Bodytransformation during Lockdown on their online program. They showed me how to eat and exercise effectively, something i thought was straight forward but obviously not! I lost 2 stone (14kg) and i am pretty sure that if I hadn't have started the program woud have put more weight on! The guys are so professional and genuniely care about your result, highly reccomended!
