#028 -Why Diets Fail, Tips for Fat Loss, and Three Steps to Get Started with Weight Loss—with Lacy Arnold

Today’s guest is Lacy Arnold, who is the founder and CEO of LeanMoms.com.  She is a devoted mother to three daughters, who are the inspiration for her company.  She holds a BS degree in Health and Wellness and offers a unique approach to women’s fitness.  Lacy’s passion is to help mothers achieve their ideal body, have a holistic lifestyle, and “get their sexy back!”

Like many mothers, Lacy struggled in trying to get fit again after having her three daughters.  She decided to develop a realistic program that WORKS and use it to help other women.

Lacy knew her program had to fit into a busy mom’s lifestyle, so she based it on three main principles:  strength training, high-intensity interval training (HIT), and right nutrition.  Join us to hear details about each of these aspects of the Lean Moms program.

Lacy shares with us some of the keys to her program:

  • Diet is 80% of the work!  Use Lacy’s 90/10 rule to help you stick to the plan.
  • The main reason diets don’t work is that people want a QUICK FIX instead of a LONG-TERM, SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLE.
  • The key is to take small steps forward.  Listen to learn the small steps you can take that lead to BIG success in weight loss!
  • Lacy shares her Level 1 and Level 2 meal plans.  They focus on cutting down on fat, eating lean protein, eating every 2-3 hours, and gradually adding healthier carbs.
  • There is no “calorie-counting” in Lacy’s program because calories have nothing to do with overall good nutrition.
  • Your “mindset” may be the most important aspect of any weight loss success.  Lacy shares how she partners with a company providing meditations to assist in the mental component of weight loss.  Learn how you can try it out for free!
  • Lacy’s program has different levels and different costs.  The premium program costs about $.50/day and includes meal plans, recipes, meditations, online coaching, group calls, discounts for some services, and discounts for live events.  Listen to learn more!
  • There are three things you can do to begin weight loss TODAY!  Increase your workout intensity, cut out sugar, and increase your intake of lean protein.

By following Lacy’s advice, you can see results within ONE WEEK!  Best of all, you will FEEL BETTER and have MORE MENTAL CLARITY!

    Dr. Anh – I am really enjoying and learning from your podcasts. However, when I tried to go to the Lean Moms website, it takes me to a site called the beta switch which is a marketing website for a program that doesn’t even have Lacy’s name on it that I can see. Your link does the same thing. Not sure what is up but I was disappointed not to be able to read Lacy’s website. Thank you!

      Hi Lynne,

      Thanks for listening to the podcast and for your kind words! It appears that Lacy’s LeanMoms website has been hacked and I have reached out to her to inform her. In the meantime, you can check out her current site, LacyArnold.com.

      Please let me know if there is anything else that you might need.

      All the Best,
      Dr. Anh
