ERF Q&A 019: What Is “Flexible Dieting” And How Can You Use It To Lose Fat?

Can you really still eat your favorite foods and lose fat?

Well, kind of.

Flexible Dieting gets a lot of attention.

It is something that CAN be very useful, when done right.

What the hell is it though?

I can tell you what it isn’t, eating whatever you want however much you want whenever the hell you want, and thinking you will still lose fat.

It is NOT an easy way out of dieting/losing fat.

It is simply just a way to enjoy your favorite foods, in moderation, with the base of your diet being nutrient dense, Whole Foods.

How can you do this though without over indulging?

Without just saying F it and eating whatever the hell you want?

This podcast goes over exactly what flexible dieting is, and how you can implement it in YOUR fat loss journey.

Let me know what you think. I love feedback so reach out to me with thoughts, questions, concerns. 

ERF 020: How Motivation Actually Works

People are confused. 

Motivation is what everyone looks for when talking about fitness.

Whether it is getting started, whether it is continuing, or whether it is making change.

People THINK it goes : Motivation , Action, Results.

They are sadly mistaken.

The #1 thing that causes motivation, is action.

Without taking action, there will be no results.

With no results, there will be no reason/want for you to keep going.

Motivation truly comes from taking action on the thing you want to happen. 

If you want to go to the gym, you aren’t going to go if you keep looking for motivation to go.

You will go by actually GOING.

Listen to this podcast to find out how motivation is not only made, but sustained.

ERF Q&A 016: The “Right Calorie Deficit” Amount?

Spoiler alert: There is no “right” calorie deficit you should be aiming for.

There is only a right amount for YOU.

There are plenty of equations and calculations out there, but none of them take into consideration the individual.

And not just the physical component, but the mental.

Have you been dieting for years? Are you just starting? Do you have a history or binging/anorexia? 

So much needs to go into this.. This podcast will help give you tools to make you critically think for yourself, and decide upon what would work best for YOU. 

Let me know what you think. -E. 


ERF Q&A 013: Are You At A Fat Loss Plateau?

The number one thing I hear is people telling me their fat loss has stalled.

Then I asked them for how long.. 4 days, 8 days, 2 weeks.

That isn’t a fat loss plateau, that is you being impatient. 

Well then you tell me but Eric I have been tracking my calories perfectly, why am I not losing!

You track calories.. but do you really?

Do track the weekends?

Do you really weigh out your food?

Do you track the nibbles here and there throughout the day?

The plates you finish for your kids or the food you graze on while making their lunches?

Tracking calories is a great tool, but you have to actually track calories.

Do you have to track calories for the rest of your life?


But after you track calories legit for 30, 60, 90 days, you will get a good grasp of what 4oz of chicken looks like.

So you will have gained the skill to not have to track calories, and still see results or sustain the results you already have.

And you will probably realize, man I wasn’t actually eating the calories I thought it was, so maybe I am not at a fat loss plateau…

Give it some thought. -E.

ERF 010: Tracking Calories Will Always Lead To Results

Tracking what you do is always going to lead to better results, period.

If you track your weights and consistently increase them, you will get stronger and or bigger muscles.

If you track how much your kid is playing baseball, the more hours they practice, the better they get.

And certainly when you track your m&m’s, you’ll see you’re eating too many calories causing you not to lose weight.

This podcast goes over the utter importance of tracking calories/macros, ways to start, and what it can do for your fitness goals.

I know I harp on this a lot… but I believe it is important.

I have people ask me all the time what to do about nutrition… and I say track calories. 

Some people are like yeah yeah but what foods should I eat? Do I have to cut out bread? Just tell me what to do.

While that is nice and all, that is not how it works in real life.

No quick fixes, no broad fix for every person. Track what you eat, get the data and results, and adjust when necessary.

Give it a listen and let me know what you think!
