Why You Will Never Achieve Your Fitness Goals

We are so used to our bodies looking like a certain way, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that we like how we look.

As humans, we follow a loosely set routine and like to do the same things over and over. We wake up at X o’clock each day, exercise X times per week, eat approximately X amount of calories per day, and masturbate X amount of times per hour day. If we go any lower, or in some cases higher than that X amount, we feel different. We feel tired, groggy, and for lack of a better word, like crap.

If you’re a man who has been eating 3000 calories per day for the past 10 years of his life, how do you think you’ll feel if you decide to lose weight and suddenly drop those calories down to 2000 all of a sudden. Well you’re going to feel… uncomfortable. You’re going to hate the fact that you have to stop at 2 slices of pizza when you usually eat 4.

And when you finally realize that getting your dream body means that you’ll never be able to have your daily 3000 calorie, then you’re going to be scared shitless.

Fitness goals

Everything revolves around food

Many people don’t realize this, but most of our lives revolve around food.

What is that, you don’t believe me, well lets see:

  • You go out with friends to dinner
  • You go to your neighbor’s BBQ
  • You eat S’mores at a camp fire
  • You eat birthday cake at um… birthdays
  • You eat doughnuts and coffee at company meetings
  • You lick whip cream off a hooker’s nipple

You get the picture. My point is that we are living in a society where almost any event will involve food in some way, shape, or form.

There’s no escaping food, so ARE YOU WILLING TO CUT BACK ON FOOD THE REST OF YOUR LIFE?

I’m guessing you’re not, and that’s why you’ll never get your dream body and that’s why only 0.1% of the world population have 6 pack abs.

Changing your body is REALLY hard

I’m seriously sick and tired of these diet and workout programs coming out every year stating that changing your body is not hard if you follow their system, which usually costs hundreds of dollars.

There’s no other way around it. If you want to transform your body, whether it’s losing weight, gaining muscle, or both, then you better be ready to change your life FOREVER. It’s going to be hard and you’re most likely going to fail

Changing your life

Look, if you want to lose weight, then I’m not going to tell you stop eating chessecake. That would be horrible. Cheesecake is fucking delicious.

Instead, I would tell you begin tracking your caloric intake and I would simply tell you eat as much cheesecake as you want, but make sure you don’t go over your calorie levels (damn, I know people are going to hate me for saying that).

An exceptional body = an exceptional life

If you want have an exceptional body, then you need to live an exceptional life. 99% of people are lazy and unwilling to change their current lifestyle, and that’s why 99% percent of people just have ‘okay’ bodies.

To have an incredible looking physique, you need to do what everyone else is unwilling to do. You have to exercise regularly. You have to watch how much you eat every day. You have to become what I called in my guest article for ZentoFitness, outliers.

And if you’re not willing to do the aforementioned things, then that’s too bad. If you can’t realize that a drastic change in your body requires a drastic change in your life, then tough luck.

My point of this article was not to discourage you from changing your body, but was to simply tell you guys the truth. So many people try to sugar coat the whole body transformation process by trying to tell you how easy it is when that’s simply not true.

Changing your body will be one of the hardest things you’ve ever done.

Have you made any drastic changes to your life to change your body?

  1. I think what discourages people from changing their life habits is that every time they buy into the next fad or the next “diet,” they’re sold a dream and told they can make the change in an incredibly short period of time with minimal effort. Changing your body does not happen overnight, and changing your habits requires a long-haul, life-altering approach, which is the point you made so well. It also requires that you not beat yourself up if you reach for your failures. Just get over it and get back to work tomorrow.

    I’ve managed to shed 38 pounds in a about three years. I wasn’t incredibly obese (250lbs at 6’2″), but I definitely knew I needed to make changes. I was concerned about my overall health which, thanks to my ignorance and fast food habits, was beginning to deteriorate (hypertension in your mid-20’s is no fun). I could have lost more weight in less time if I knew what I know now about calorie counts, portion control, nutrition and exercising. But the reality is that I had to get going before in order to figure what worked best for me. I still don’t deprive myself of things I love to eat (except for fast food, which I actually stopped liking), and I’ve discovered that I like to eat a bunch of other foods I never considered before. I’m at 212lbs and counting, and my healthier habits are almost second nature at this point, which is what I was looking for all along. It’s only takes a lot of effort in the beginning, which I guess is why most people give up.

    • GP,
      First off, congrats on losing the weight. Keep it up.

      And you’re absolutely right. People need to stop searching for that “next great thing” and need to simply focus on the basics. I think we’re at a point in time where nothing can really change about dieting. You simply need to eat. less. 20 years from now, there are going to be new diets that simply rehash the same info we have today. In the end, the only way to change your body is to work hard.

  2. yeah i would have to agree on the fact changing your body is quite hard. I have been rapidly losing about 2 lbs a week for the past 10 weeks and people are beginning to notice. I incorporate intermittent fasting and have somewhat of a good work out regime. If i told people what i eat to lose weight, they might slap me. i have been using your “system”(lol) and it HAS transformed my body, my attitude, my outlook on life. EVERYTHING. I didnt really drastically change my diet, i just incorporated fasting into my daily regime and i continue to see the results. I used to be about 214 lbs, which is a lot for my height (5’8) I now weigh in at about 174 lbs and it didnt take much. You just have to put a LITTLE effort, and never give up the foods you love. FOLLOW THIS GUY’S ADVICE. You are a godsend Fitmole. lol.

    • Thanks Anthony, I appreciate your comment. And congrats on losing the weight man. Also, you’re probably right about telling people about your “diet”. Most people are too quick to judge something before they hear the end of it. Keep it up!
