As a weight loss coach for runners, I work with a lot of people whose main goal is to lose weight.

As a runner, they may have put on a few dozen pounds over the years and no matter how many more miles they run, they can’t seem to drop the pounds.

They want badly to get back to their “natural weight”, so they come to me for help reaching that goal.

This all makes perfect sense, right?

But once we start working together, I let them in on a little secret…weight loss is not the goal!


There’s something much bigger at play here, and a more important goal that you should be focused on.

In this episode of the podcast, I explain why weight loss is not the goal and the one thing that you should be focused on instead.
