Show Notes

It’s no secret that dieting is a popular New Year’s resolution. It’s also no secret that many people fail to achieve their diet goals. Scott shares a proven approach to dieting that leads to long-term success.


“It’s not the will to win that matters—everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.”
Paul “Bear” Bryant

  • There are no magic diet pills, or workout programs.
  • It’s not about can you do it. It’s about will you do it.
  • Making the diet about the “numbers” leads to failure. Instead, make it about character development.
  • Character is why some succeed and some fail.

“Character is a set of dispositions, desires and habits that are slowly engraved.” – David Brooks, The Road to Character

  • We tend to eat how we live, and we tend to live how we eat.
  • Cheating on your diet is just cheating on yourself.
  • Commit to yourself, not to a diet.
  • Treat yourself like you are someone worth taking care of and committing to, then act accordingly.
  • The more difficult the [diet] rules, the harder the diet will be to adhere to.
  • Invest in following rules which are grounded in a set of principles.
  • Escape the battle mindset: battling cravings, or battling hunger.
  • More backbone. Less wishbone.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle
