NFPT Live: Four Things That Are Making People Fat – Ep 15



You probably know about these four fat loss factors. Tune in to expand your understanding of how they prevent you from helping some people lose weight and stay healthy. We talk about physiology, psychology, training strategies and more in this episode of NFPT Live.

In this episode we talked about:

#1 Lack of physical activity – not just doing it but how you do it. Cardio isn’t always key.

#2 Nutrition is an obvious one, but the habits that influence it are where change happens.

#3 Sleep scheduling and how it throws off your entire health rhythm when it’s irregular.

#4 Inability to manage stress because it’s not about getting rid of it. It’s about coping.


Some of our viewers said:

“Stress in anything that triggers in the brain an expenditure of energy to maintain homeostasis. Balance is key.”

“Don’t sleep in. That also can throw off bedtime.”

“Next year marks 50 years of lifting and continually improving my nutrition habits. I learned early on to eat smaller meals throughout the day, instead of a few larger meals!”

“Lack of sleep may also correlate to excessive stress. Hard to turn off stress of work so that you sleep well!”

“I never realized how many carbs I ate through-out the day until I started counting them. Holy cow…I was disgusted.”

“Encouraging more natural foods and less on packaged food.”

“Portion control is key in combination with what we are eating.We are a nation of large portions.”

“Your future depends on your dreams. So go to sleep” -Mesut Barazany
