Ever feel like you sabotage yourself?
Do you wonder why you never seem to run out of pounds to lose before you run out of motivation?
“I Know What to Do—So Why Don’t I Do It?”
Weight loss is very complex and the barriers are far more numerous than the vast majority of Americans, including most health & fitness professionals, realize. While good information about what to eat and how to exercise safely and effectively is definitely important, it only comprises a very small piece of what enables a person to attain a healthy body and weight. Nearly everyone knows that fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and healthy fats, like olive oil, promote good health; and that fast food, junk food, fatty foods, sugar, alcohol and caffeine do not. Who hasn’t heard that we should move 30 minutes or more a day? Despite the abundance of solid nutrition and exercise information, our nation’s obesity epidemic rages on.
Most UU Challenge participants share a history of on-again-off-again, up-and-down dieting spanning ten, twenty or more years. In fact when it comes to diets – a lack of long-term results is the norm. Studies show that some 95% of those who try the diet/deprivation approach end up right back where they started, plus a few pounds, within 6 to 12 months of going off the diet.
Pieces Are Missing—We Know What They Are
Imagine that a healthy lifestyle is a destination. Most weight loss programs and experts offer eating and exercise “prescriptions” which provide the equivalent of a “street address” for this destination. What Americans need to know now is how to get there. Ultimate U’s transformational wellness process, The Ultimate U Challenge, does exactly that. It exposes why diets don’t work and provides the missing pieces Americans need to navigate, step-by-step, from where they are now to where they want to be. Our unique approach goes far beyond the basics of nutrition and exercise to help participants overcome all the obstacles in the way of success.
The ‘Unseen Barriers’ to Success
Diet & exercise advice are important, but lack of knowledge in these areas is no longer the primary cause of our nation’s weight struggles. Lasting changes in health and weight can only be achieved by overcoming the real barriers to success. These barriers tend to impact us out of our awareness in the realm of “what we don’t know we don’t know.” Acquiring knowledge and awareness of the following ‘unseen’ barriers is the missing piece to lasting change.
• Motivational barriers
• Belief system barriers
• Biological barriers
• Social barriers
• Environmental barriers
• Emotional barriers
• Interpersonal communication barriers
• Time management barriers
• Energy management barriers
• Stress management barrier

No matter how long they have struggled, when people are empowered with the knowledge needed to overcome these barriers, magic occurs! Ultimate U’s comprehensive, eye-opening lifestyle change process offers participants the opportunity of a lifetime to say goodbye to guilt, shame and failure and hello to the tools, strategies and steps to long-term weight loss success.
