How to PASS the Test of New Year's Weight Loss Resolutions

The New York Times Best-Selling Author and SANE Solution Founder Jonathan Bailor Shares Four Tips to Ring in the New Year on a Healthy Note

​Ninety percent of New Year’s weight loss resolutions fail by February. The New York Times and USA Today best-selling author and SANESolution founder Jonathan Bailor shares four tips to PASS the test of New Year’s weight loss resolutions.

Positive – Establish a positive mindset and focus on progress not perfection. Instead of letting slip-ups sabotage a healthy resolution, focus on small successes and not overall perfection. The hormones produced from the stress of trying to eat perfectly are far more harmful than the minor slip-up.

Add, Don’t Take Away – Focus on adding more healthy foods rather than just taking away the unhealthy foods. Fill your plate, bowl or smoothie with high-satiety foods (water, fiber and lean protein) that help you stay full longer and avoid overeating. By focusing on the positive (adding) instead of the negative (taking away), we heal our hormones and have less room to overeat unhealthy options.

Sleep – If you must choose between sleep or exercise … always choose sleep.  Sleep supports hormonal healing and permanent weight loss by lowering your “setpoint” weight. Set a goal to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep a night (even if it means skipping your morning jog!).

Slower & Lower – Incorporate “eccentric” resistance training (weights) into your workout. Focus on the movement of lowering the weights slower and you will work untapped muscle fiber and find great results.

“Ninety percent of New Year's resolutions fail in two months because conventional dieting, and how people have been told to lose weight, fights against the hormones, making it nearly impossible to win the battle,” states Jonathan Bailor, New York Time best-selling author and founder of SANESolution. “When you focus on the quality of what you eat and how you exercise vs. the quantity, you work with your body to heal your hormones and set yourself up for permanent weight loss.”
