Another conversation I had at Coaching Day on Monday was with regards to holidays.

And the potential for gaining weight whilst on them.

“You can’t stick to a diet when you’re away” one person said.

“Then maybe don’t ‘be on a diet’?” I replied.

“Could you just have maintenance or deficit calories while you’re away?”

“Well, yeah. I suppose” they replied.

As always, there’s no right or wrong.

If “being on or off a diet” works as an approach for someone, then that’s cool.

From my experience though……….

For the vast majority of people……….

It doesn’t work as an approach (there’s a proven approach, with a money back guarantee, waiting for you at

Much love,
