In this weeks episode, Brett Hoebel, trainer from NBC’s, The Biggest Loser and creator of the 20 Minute Body, will share some of his secrets on his diet, workouts, as well has give you some behind the scenes from the hit TV show. You’ll learn what a Food Management Bag is and how it can help you in your health goals. You’ll also begin to understand the importance of looking into your emotional world and why that is imperative for long term success in change.
As a child, being adopted as well as having uncommon food allergies, Brett was different from his peers making him a perfect target for being bullied. To try to impress and convince some kids to like him, he begin to binge eat to get attention and help him fit him. This didn’t last too long before he plumped up and was being bullied again for being overweight. He was depressed, dateless, and abusing himself with emotional eating. One day, hiding in the closet and stuffing his face with food, Brett decided to make a change.
He says when he this emotional rock bottom, he then went to the opposite extreme. In sports practice, if the coach said 20 push ups, he’d do 30 and he began taking his mom’s advice about nutrition. Over the next year and a half he lost 50 pounds, felt better and started dating.
From his experience Brett believes that you need an anchoring moment to create change: He says, “If you have an emotional moment and do an action because of it, it ingrains it in your body mentally and viscerally.” Action and accountability are the keys to success. “The dumbbell and the diet don’t get you into shape, its your accountability to your word and your belief in yourself that do.”
Brett has created a program that “helps you find your fitness from within”. It comes with a series of workouts and a nutrition program that you can do from your own home or on the road. The best part is everything should only take you 20 minutes; 20 minute workouts and recipes designed to be cooked start to finish in under 20.
“The dumbbell and the diet don’t get you into shape, its your accountability to your word and your belief in yourself that do.”
Write down what is the main reason you want to accomplish your goal. Keep writing until you feel a connection to this. If you find what you are emotionally connected to, you’ll have a higher chance of success.
