· Exercise does not need to be a part of your weight loss process, it’s important to separate the two.
· By separating exercise from losing weight, you remove those thoughts that creep in and can derail your weight loss efforts.
· When your body is in the process of burning fat and losing weight, it prefers to stay in a loss mode.
· Exercise is something you can continue if you feel like you have a healthy relationship with it
· If you want to do walking or you want to do yoga or you want to do some sort of moderate exercise while you're losing weight, it can be a compliment
· Three pillars of building a new habit of exercise
o Commit by making a plan that's easy to follow through on in the beginning so that you have that evidence that you can do.
o Make it fun, because if it’s not fun you’re not going to do it
o You need to manage your mind if you're exercising, rigorously
· “Put more of a focus and more of an emphasis on what you're eating And much less of a focus if any, on exercise.”
· “I didn't do it [exercise] thinking that it was going to help me lose weight and let me tell you, it made a huge, huge difference for me.”
· “that old diet mentality is really hardwired and there's so many of us who think, ‘Oh, if I exercise, maybe I can eat a little bit more’, and even though we know that that doesn't really work, we default to doing it anyway.”
· “That diet mentality is so sneaky and so pervasive you have to constantly be on the lookout for those old thoughts resurfacing.”
· “You have to constantly work so you don't fall back into that trap of thinking you need to completely deprive yourself or over exercise to lose weight.”
· “Your body doesn't want to be depleted of fat if it thinks that you're going to be burning a lot of energy.”
· “What I suggest is a way to not only streamline the process, but also make it much simpler to focus on and follow is to really devote a lot of your mental energy into what do you eat and in managing your mind.”
· “Once you've lost the weight, you can start incorporating more rigorous exercise into your day-to-day routine.”
· “When you get to this place where you've lost the weight and you're interested in incorporating more rigorous exercise is that you decide what the minimum amount is that you can commit to on a daily basis.”
· “Figure out what really keeps you motivated, that helps you hold yourself accountable.”
