As a part of the human ego, we prefer to fancy that we are unique or different from others. This notion is illustrated by the numerous items of apparel available and social media posts / images around being the physical manifestation of a unicorn itself. I am going to apologize in advance for having to burst that rainbow-colored bubble (ideology) as it relates to nutrition goals (weight loss, performance, composition change). Before we begin, I want to make a brief disclaimer that there are and will always be situations in which a medical condition, prescribed medication, and so on affect our body weight and/or performance. I have no intention of ignoring that fact but will state that those are usually the edge cases or less likely reason for not attaining goals.

Those familiar with John Berardi and/or Precision Nutrition may be aware of the “pause button” mentality to health and fitness. To summarize, it is the misconception that wellness can be put on hold when life or a plan become difficult. This is not to say that your approach may not need to be modified from time to time, but rather to not step into the pitfall of believing you can continuously make health secondary to the ever-changing circumstances of life without negative consequences.

The truth is anyone can be a fitness / nutrition coach on social media or through paying a fee to sign on with an MLM based company.

This approach, paired with years of hands on experience, are what allow Adaptive to be successful at long-term fat loss and performance improvement.

Unfortunately, there are those seeking to profit from the hysteria and increased willingness for the general public to buy products claiming to increasing immunity.

A large percentage of those who reach out to me are seeking weight loss, and more specifically fat loss. One thing that I consider, that may not be commonly factored into the approach of other coaches or template plans, is if the person is ready for a weight loss phase. Of consideration is current psychological and physical state. The most common issue of a potential client that would exclude them from being ready is having a history of chronic dieting. I will use this write-up to dive into that scenario to help you decide if perhaps a weight loss phase is the last thing you need to be seeking at this moment.
