So, you want to successfully transform your body in 2020 do you?
I love nothing more than seeing someone transform their body (and let’s face it - their health too) successfully.
In this article you'll learn 4 vital ingredients to a successful body transformation in 2020.
With that said, what makes 2020 different for you compared to 2019?
What will you do differently?
As the old saying goes - if you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got.
Transforming your body in 2020 requires vital ingredients.
This is not an exhaustive list, merely the most important ingredients to a successful body transformation.
Let’s jump in to the first vital ingredient...
Often we get caught up in what is often known as ‘bright shiny object syndrome’.
As soon as the latest fad diet or trend comes along, we jump on the bandwagon faster than a 16 year old checks their likes on Instagram.
A successful body transformation requires focus on the basic principles of weight loss, not the next trend of eating.
Here’s what you should be focussing on:
Once you have focus, it’s time to move on to the next vital ingredient.
When I say consistency, I don’t mean “never skip a workout” or “never stray from your eating plan”.
Consistency means “never miss twice”.
Life WILL get in the way throughout your journey - that’s normal and I guarantee it will happen eventually. The key here is to never miss twice.
Here’s what I mean:
The point here is it’s okay to screw up, but it’s not okay to miss twice.
Being consistent is about being consistent overall and not aiming for perfection. People fail to transform their body when they adopt the “all or nothing” mindset. They feel like they need to be either on a diet, or not at all. This mindset doesn’t allow for mistakes or life.
Remember, perfection doesn’t exist when losing weight. Consistency is never missing twice, not aiming for perfection and if you truly want a successful body transformation in 2020, consistency is vital.
As the age old saying goes - “To know and not do, is really not knowing at all”.
Knowledge is important for weight loss, providing you take action on what you know.
This is exactly where people fall short.
There’s no secret method or formula as to why one person loses weight and the other doesn’t. One person simply took action on what they knew, and the other didn’t.
With that said, knowledge is a vital ingredient to transforming your body.
Here’s a list of the basics you need to know and understand to lose weight:
The above list is certainly not conclusive, but they’re the most important factors you should know when losing weight.
Can you know too much? Maybe.
Paralysis by analysis really is a thing however, focussing on the above basics is just what you need to begin.
Speaking of psychology, let’s move on to the next vital ingredient.
This might be last, but it’s certainly not least.
Ownership is hard and not many people truly master it. Now don’t me wrong, we’re all guilty of shifting blame onto somebody (or something) else when it comes to losing weight.
<insert excuse here>
But truly taking ownership and being accountable to your actions immediately places you in the driver’s seat.
Here are some examples of taking ownership:
But the moment you take ownership of your current situation, you’ve achieved one of the most vital ingredients to a successful body transformation.
Go forth and take action, my friend.
Change is never easy, but I guarantee adopting these 4 vital ingredients will bring you not only a successful body transformation in 2020, but forever too.

Thanks for this informative post! The 4 factors you mentioned are all extremely valid. I think your notion of consistency is important. Occasional missed days happen, but you shouldn’t miss twice. I feel that this is something many people have to work on. When you miss many days in a row, you may feel discouraged and give up on reaching your health goals. However, it’s crucial to keep striving for progress or else this new year will be like any other. I think knowledge is important too. Like the picture, many health brands market their products as healthier than traditional junk food when in reality they’re very similar. However, I believe having a social circle conducive to your goals is vital as well. When the people around you aren’t health-oriented, it’s extremely difficult for you to be too. You may be able to make positive changes for a while, but it’ll be hard to keep it up. This article has an informative stance on this and explains more about it: https://www.fitnesssolutionsplus.ca/blog/social-circle/
