10 Mistakes Women Make When Trying To Get Lean

"Female Fat Loss Rules"The truth about female fat loss? it’s not always what you think!

Today we’re going to explore 5 out the 10 most common mistakes women make when it comes to fat burning. Let me know if you’ve been guilty of any of them!

1. training fasted

It’s usually done in good intentions and based on having been told that it’s the best for burning fat, but the truth is that training on an empty stomach tells your body to hold onto fat stores.

Your body is programmed to think that you’re still living a bit like a cavewoman – if you exercise without eating, it must mean you can’t find food. Which, for survival purposes, means batten down the fat cells.

Try this instead – have something easily digestible and protein-based at least 30 minutes before eating. Boiled eggs or half an organic protein shake are both great starting options. Or you could do as I do and have some steak or leftover chicken half the time!

2. snacks instead of fat burning protein

This is one of the biggest mistakes that women make when looking to get super lean.

And no, I’m not even talking about snacking on the occasional candy bar or actual treat, I’m talking about eating even healthy snack foods. I have nothing against yoghurt, nuts or nut butter, dark chocolate, home-made superfood balls and the like.

But when you regularly enjoy even the healthiest snacks instead of adequate protein? That’s where you run into problems. Aim for at least 4 serves of animal-based protein each day as a base-line. Once you know you have that under control, feel free to add the healthy snacks, but I still don’t think any of us really need them daily, unless you’re talking maybe a square or two dark chocolate in addition to a meal!

3. never eating carbs

Oh, this is a big one.

It is SO easy to get so well caught up in the world of paleo or primal eating that you forget that these methods both include some healthy (by which I mean non or low-processed, and gluten-free) starches from time to time.

I’ve learned the hard way that even though many people fare better and get leaner eating low-carb, cutting out carbs altogether results in disaster of usually epic proportions. And I don’t just mean epic-ness of a post-low-carb-diet chocolate binge.

I believe that we can all include some starch in our diets when it’s timed carefully and added to a foundation of plenty of greens, lean protein, and (of course) some good fats.

4. ‘holding out’

Actually, I said the idea of never eating carbs was big but this is even BIGGER. And I’m going to go right ahead and say it – it is SUCH a girl thing to do!

Honestly ladies, how is it that we can be so very smart about business, training, finances and even manage to keep up with the constant Facebook changes and yet we still can’t quite get our heads around the idea that it’s okay to eat when we’re hungry?!

I know you’ve been there at least once – telling yourself you can ‘hold out’ another hour or two, and some deep part of you thinking that doing so must mean ‘saving calories’ or burning more fat.

Doesn’t work, does it? So let’s all take a collective exhale and agree that if we are hungry we will feed ourselves. Fairly promptly, no less, and at least 80% of the time with whole foods as close to their natural state as possible.

5. over-training

The down-side of being a driven woman is that once we get onto a good thing we tend to just keep going. And going. And going. When it comes to living a balanced life I think many of us Type A gals never actually got directions to the off-ramp or braking mechanism.

I realised that I was a case in point a few months back when talking to my friends and noticing that I was training at least twice as much as any of them. And I’m NOT in better shape than these girls, they are all very fit and healthy and all look amazing.

The lesson?

More is not always better, and the truth is that there’s been many a workout that’s been driven out of my fear of falling behind, or somehow magically gaining 10kg overnight if I miss a day, or perhaps just feeling I need to ‘make up’ for something.

How about you? Can you relate?

Athletes are taught to have roughly every 13th week off as an ‘unloading’ week, and I think we should be doing the same. But not only that, if you’re also someone who is prone to pushing yourself day after day I’d suggest having every 13th planned workout off as an unloading day.

Are you brave enough to try it?

What are some of the mistakes you’ve made in pushing yourself to achieve certain goals? What would you never do again, or what are you determined to change?

Ready to make some changes Gorgeous!

10 Days of Live Soul Transmissions, to Help You Find and Follow the Messages Within

Day 1) Trust

Day 2) Certainty

Day 3) Self-Belief

Day 4) Empire Creation

Day 5) Your Deepest Message

Day 6) Following Soul Guidance in All Areas

Day 7) Faith vs Fear

Day 8) Accessing Flow, and Superflow

Day 9) Expanding Time

Day 10) Expanding Money

Every day will be a LIVE soul led transmission.

This will take place on Facebook video, held at a variety of times in order to account for varying time zones, and scheduled only once we have begun. Our daily soul transmissions will be guided from MY higher self and directed from and for YOURS, to help you find and FOLLOW the messages within. The messages of your spirit, your consciousness, of the who you’ve always been and yet have managed quite well to cover up a lot of the time.

This is about stripping away –

And getting back to the CORE.

We’ll dive day by day into the above mentioned areas –

And you’ll receive all content and bonuses to keep for life.

There will be daily spirit prompts which you’ll receive after each training.

And plenty of time opportunity connect with me throughout, receive transmissions direct to YOUR questions, and absorb more even than what comes through on the trainings, via the energy we’ll create in this collective!

It’s very rare for me to know in advance exactly what is coming through day to day.

I certainly don’t have the details of each day’s content. But I know that these areas have been on my heart to talk about, in particular around belief, around certainty, around living from FAITH.

We know that exactly what is meant to come through for you WILL, and then some. And that if you intend and allow for it to, it will change, most likely before we even begin, due to your energetic commitment, the direction of your LIFE!

Meaning: direct it back to absolute soul alignment.

*** NEVER Seen Before Bonus! ***

As part of this, I’ve been guided to offer a NEVER before seen bonus … one I feel super vulnerable about sharing!

It’s the exact journaling I did to allow the download of THIS offer through. How I allowed the idea to bubble up. You’ll see my doubt, uncertainty, annoyance. You’ll see what I discarded. How I went through the layers. And how I KNEW, this was the one.

I’ll ALSO add in copies (screenshots) of my conversation with my COO Ash, where I was talking through the idea and allowing it to come to life.

I want to show you the exact Idea to Launch process!

This bonus alone is EASILY worth the cost of this program, particularly when you hear the mindset side of it, in terms of STAYING THE COURSE and refusing to back away from my self until the idea showed up!

I refuse not to create!!

AND, when you register for EXPANSION today (and how could you not?!) you’ll also receive early access to the Pre-Work. This is ALSO never seen before, and brand new just for you – and it’s a guided meditation on remembrance, to help you connect back to deepest self and the most certain truth of your destiny, before we even begin.

Perfect priming, for when we expand RAPIDLY into all that is coming through in this work!

Of course I could now go on and on here, about what I could or should have charged for this, and what it’s actually going to be …

Or about all my accomplishments on line and off, with money, with purpose, with passion, with flow …

I think you know all this anyway. Even if you just me! Your soul feels what matters. And that’s ALL that matters.

But I will say this:

You’ve always known it’s supposed to be about ALL that is inside of you. That it’s meant to COME from a place of purpose, passion, and SUPER super flow. And that if you just.freaking.trusted, and showed up FULLY from that place, you’d be living in a different reality already.

THE ONE INSIDE OF YOU.

If that’s true for you right now, then LET’S GO CREATE THAT REALITY.

Right now
