I know you have dreams, but having dreams and turning them into action are two completely different animals.

A dream turns into a goal when concrete actions are taken to accomplish something that resonates inside of you.

Setting goals that are important to you and accomplishing them will strengthen your self-trust as well as self-esteem.

This is part of becoming a well adjusted, happy human being.

You can use the acronym SMART to remember the basics of goal setting:

Be Specific with a Measurable goal that is Attainable, Relevant, and Time-Specific.

Here are more goal-setting tips that will help you with your journey:

  1. Start with what you want: “I want to lose weight this year.”
  2. Figure out the measurable steps that will help you reach your goal: “I will have to eat and drink less so as to put myself into a caloric deficit.”
  3. Determine what you have to do to achieve your goal: ” I will track everything I put into my body for three days so I know approximately how much I’m currently taking in and then eat less so I will start losing.”

Goal setting typically starts with wishful thinking.

You have to turn the thinking into a concrete action plan, and that’s what makes it a goal!

Make the goal something that is important to you, something that will get you out of bed an hour early in the morning.

If the thought of doing the work doesn’t get you excited, you may want to re-think your goal.

That’s right… today I’m sharing a step-by-step overview of how to get started with intermittent fasting if you’ve never tried it. 

This approach to weight loss is one of the most popular in the world and I have multiple clients who use it successfully, so if you haven’t done it and you’re on the fence, hopefully this post will make the transition easier.


Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on how to use intermittent fasting:

Step 1: Choose a plan that suits your life: find a plan favorable for your lifestyle and schedule.

Step 2:  Go gradual for significant success. Increasing fasting windows gradually prevents issues like dizziness, general sadness, low energy and headaches about not eating.

Step 3: Believe that fasting doesn’t sucks, rather that it makes you feel better and mentally clear.

Step 4: Drink several glasses of water; chewing gum can also keep your mouth busy.

Step 5: Do thorough research on what fits you best to solidify your intermittent fasting.

Step 6: Stay busy and avoid seeing what other people eat.

Step 7: Eat enough during your eating window, and include proteins, complex carbs and healthy fats in your diet.

Step 8: Don’t overdo your intermittent fasting.

Step 9: Go easy on the workouts until your body adjusts to the decreased caloric consumption.

Step 10: Know your progress to know whether the intermittent fasting is working for you.
