11 Best-Kept Secrets of Top Diet Coaches Revealed

Having a hard time reaching your fitness goals?

Well, what if I told you that you could get the same insider tips as the top diet coaches themselves?

That's right, in this article, we're letting the cat out of the bag and sharing the best-kept secrets from our experts. We'll cover everything from shifting your mindset to curbing cravings.

So, let's dive in and see what the pros have to say!

1. Look Beyond Calories

So, here's the deal: counting calories isn't the magic diet formula. When you're trying to slim down, you might ask yourself things like, "Do I eat 1,200 or 1,500 calories?" or "What's the perfect breakfast to have?" But in reality, it's just not as important as most people think it is.

What really matters is understanding why we eat in the first place. Are you actually hungry or just snacking because you're bored, stressed, or exhausted? Once we figure that out, we can start making some real changes to our diet. So, ditch the calorie counting, dig deeper, and get to the bottom of why you eat the way you do.

2. Stop Emotional Eating in Its Tracks

Want to know how to beat your emotional eating once and for all? Well, the quickest way to get to the bottom of it is to ask yourself some hard-hitting questions. So, the next time you're about to reach for that candy bar, ask yourself:

"Am I really hungry, or am I trying to change how I'm feeling?"

When you start to understand why you're eating, it becomes pretty clear that food isn't the solution to the problem.

The truth is that it's never about the food. It's really about what the food lets us avoid or the void it fills.

So, if you want to beat emotional eating, it's time to start asking yourself some tough questions and getting real about what's really going on.

3. Get to the Root of Self-sabotage

We've all been there - you're killing it with your health and fitness goals, and then BOOM! You find yourself elbow-deep in a tub of ice cream or a bag of chips. It's called self-sabotage, and it's a common issue.

But have you ever wondered why we sabotage our diets?

Well, it all boils down to one tiny four-letter word: FEAR. We're afraid that change is too hard, we're afraid of giving up our favorite foods, and we're afraid of what life will be like once we hit our goal weight.

But here's the deal – you can totally beat that fear! Step one is figuring out what you're afraid of, and then you gotta confront those fears head-on. Once you do that, everything changes. You'll have a new perspective that will make those fears seem way less daunting. So let's learn how to stop self-sabotaging and start taking control of our diets.

4. Don't Sweat the Small Stuff

When it comes to weight loss, progress beats perfection every time.

Trying to be perfect is a good thing – it means you care about doing things right. But the problem is, trying to be perfect can actually hold you back from reaching your goals. You're trying to get in shape, but you're so focused on being perfect that you feel overwhelmed and give up.

So here's the secret:

You've gotta know when to turn down that perfectionist dial and focus solely on making progress. Because the truth is, progress is what really counts. So let's ditch the idea of being perfect and focus on making small, consistent changes.

5. Motivation Fades, Commitments Stick

Commitments are far more important than motivation when it comes to achieving your health goals.

Motivation is great and all, but it's fickle. One day you're feeling pumped up and ready to go, and the next day you're feeling blah and don't want to get out of bed.

But when you make a commitment, that's different. A commitment is a decision you make – it's like when you commit to your bestie that you'll pick them up from the airport no matter what. They know they can count on you because you made a commitment. You see?

You have to make that same kind of commitment to yourself and your health if you want to succeed. Because once you do, you don't have to worry about whether you feel motivated or not.

6. Break the Cycle of Starting Over

If you're sick of always "starting over" with your diet, ask yourself this one question:

"If not now, then when?"

Look, we get it – it's hard to make healthy choices when you're surrounded with temptation. And it's even harder when you keep telling yourself you'll just start fresh tomorrow. But here's the thing – tomorrow never really comes, does it?

So instead of putting things off, start asking yourself, "If not now, then when?" every time you feel tempted to put things off. Trust us when we say that the more you ask that question, the harder it is to justify putting things off til tomorrow. So let's stop with the excuses and start living our best lives – starting right now!

7. All-or-Nothing is a Losing Game

This whole "all-or-nothing" mindset... It's a trap, plain and simple.

So many of think that one slip-up means we've failed entirely. You have a few too many cookies and suddenly you're like, "Well, I might as well just give up on this whole healthy eating thing."

But that's just not true! Life is messy, and sometimes we're gonna slip up. But that doesn't mean we've failed.

See, getting fit isn't black-and-white or on-or-off. It's not like you either win or you lose. It's more like a spectrum, where every little healthy choice you make moves you closer to your goals. So the next time you slip up, don't beat yourself up about it. Just dust yourself off and keep moving forward. 'Cause remember, it's about progress, not perfection.

8. Start Listening to Your Cravings

Cravings, let's talk about those, shall we? Most of us think of cravings as this annoying thing we have to resist all the time. Like, "Ugh, I really want that cookie, but I'm on a diet so I can't have it."

But did you know that cravings aren't necessarily a bad thing? In fact, they can be a really helpful signal from our bodies telling us what we need. Maybe we're bored, or anxious, or just need a little moment of joy. Whatever it is, our cravings are there to grab our attention and make us listen up.

So the next time you're craving something, don't just try to ignore it or push it away. Instead, take a minute to figure out what you really need. Maybe you need to go for a walk and clear your head, or maybe you just need to do something that you really enjoy.

The next time a craving comes knocking, open the door and see what it wants!

9. Avoid Guilt With the Two-Week Test

Okay, now let's talk about indulgences. See, a lot of us struggle with the whole "should I eat this or not" debate, right? We want to be healthy, but we also want to enjoy our food. So here's a little trick for you – use the two-week test!

Here's how it works:

Think back over the last two weeks and try to remember something you ate that was so dang good, it's still on your mind. I'm talking about something truly memorable – not just some boring old snack.

When you plan your indulgences based on how memorable they are, you'll not only eat less of them, but you'll enjoy them so much more.

So next time you're debating whether to indulge or not, just ask yourself – "Will I remember this in two weeks?" If the answer is yes, then go for it! And if the answer is no, well, you know what to do.

10. Discomfort is Your Compass

I know that talking about being uncomfortable isn't a popular thing to do, but we're going to do it anyway.

If you want to be successful in anything, there's going to be some level of discomfort involved. Whether it's walking when you're tired or saying no to that third slice of pizza, you gotta get comfortable with discomfort if you want to make progress.

But being uncomfortable isn't a bad thing. In fact, discomfort is your compass. It's pointing you in the direction of growth and change.

So instead of always trying to avoid discomfort, try embracing it for a change, try negotiating with it. Ask yourself, "What level of discomfort am I willing to accept to make progress?" Maybe you're willing to tolerate a little soreness after a workout, or a little hunger between meals. Whatever it is, figure out what you can handle.

As the saying goes, "The only way out is through." The more you push through discomfort and keep moving forward, the stronger and more resilient you'll become.

11. Get Some Accountability

If you're serious about getting healthy and losing weight, there's one thing you absolutely need: accountability. It's what will keep you on track when you're feeling tempted to skip that workout or eat that whole pizza.

Accountability is what helps you stay focused, motivated, and determined to reach your goals. And the best way to get it? Find yourself a diet coach that will hold you to your commitments and help you stay on track.

But whoever you choose to hold you accountable, make sure it's someone you trust and respect and who won't let you off the hook when you're feeling tempted to slack off. We all need a little push sometimes, and when you've got someone on your side, supporting you and holding you accountable, you'll be amazed at what you can achieve.

I mean, just look at all of our success stories. Every person you'll read about is proof that having a diet coach and having someone there to keep you on track is what works.
