Deadlines for your diet

When it comes to remembering food intake, we are all liars. If you are struggling with fat loss, it's probably your diet, so write down what you eat. Do that for every thing that goes in your mouth for 7 days. Log it on or one of the many apps for that. Get the truth about your food intake, calorie intake, protein intake, etc. Don't tell me it's too hard. It's one the simplest and most effective actions you can take to lose fat. Get to know the truth about your body and how it reacts to diet, exercise, and stress.

If you feel like you're spinning your wheels and not making any progress, one solution is to put more urgency into your life. Here's what you need to do. First, identify what it is that you truly want to accomplish. Second, outline what you need to do to get there. And third, give yourself a deadline. (Bonus fourth step: Cut that deadline by 20%. Don't worry, you'll reach it.) These steps are simple, but effective, because they combine the power of a vision with the urgency of a deadline

"Nobody gets old by surprise." – Kekich Credo #83. Think about what you accomplish if you really focus for the next 12 weeks. After all, that's only 0.3% of your life. Surely you can commit to that, can't you?
