There are various themes and conversations I look to discuss with all of my clients. One of them is about how to understand your metabolism during the process of changing your body. 

The vast majority of people use the wrong concept for this area. All too often it is viewed like driving a car, you decide on your destination (decide to change your body), you get in the car and start driving it (cut down on food) and carry on until you get to your goal (an easy ride with no obstacles)…. If Only!! 

A more appropriate way to view your body during a transformation is you are a surfer and your metabolism is the sea and the waves you need to ride to get to shore.

There are some profound differences when you use this analogy. For starters, you instantly know that it is more complicated, more unpredictable and a bigger challenge then driving the car up the road. It also has two factors, how good are you at surfing and how big are the waves you are trying to ride. This view also changes the way you should view handling ‘failure’. 

Check out the video below for more on this and what it means for you. I love this topic as one, it so fundamental and important for results, but also as it allows me to talk about when I went to Nazare in Portugal to see the world record surfing attempts. I include a few photos of this in the video 🙂 🙂
