The Purge on Fat Loss

I went to the cinema the other day, to see ‘The First Purge’. Pretty decent viewing but fairly predictable if you’ve already saw the others.

But I’m not going to spoil the movie for you just in case you’ve yet to watch it.

At one point during the movie it got me thinking about fat loss, yeah I know, it’s weird that I go to the cinema and end up thinking about fat loss or fitness (especially weird as I was stuffing a share bag of fruit pastilles down my gub!)

Anyways, the purge movies all have one thing in common.

Every year, a ‘purge’ commences.

Which basically means, for 12 hours out of the whole year, every crime is legal (including murder) – for 12 straight hours, you could kill as many people, rob as many houses or steal as many cars as you want and there would be no legal consequences after the purge ends.

Yeah, it’s a bit ‘out there” but it’s actually pretty entertaining.

It’s a choice. 

Not everyone has to take part in the purge.

Everyone has a choice.

Can you imagine being able to legally go out and rob shops, kill people, steal cars etc

I can’t.

In my normal day to day life, it’s not something I ever think about doing. I’ve never sat down and thought “oh I really wish stealing was legal so I could go and steal that watch.”

It just doesn’t ever come in to your head.

But what if you actually did have that choice…. do you think you would “purge”?

There’s a chance you might, given the CHOICE. There’s a chance I would do it given the choice too.

And it’s at that point in the movie when I started to think about fat loss.

It’s about choice again.

When looking to lose fat, tone up, and transform your body, it becomes a game of choices.

Make good choices and you’ll have good results.

Make bad choices and you’ll have bad results.

If you find that you’re making “bad choices” on a regular basis, there’s a good chance that it’s actually your own fault.

See, when it comes to choices, it often comes down to our environment.

If you’re environment is working against you, you’re going to have a really hard time making “good choices”.

FOOD ENVIRONMENT personal trainer in Glasgow

Change your environment to change your body, fitness and life!

Picture this, you walk into a room and there’s a bowl of your favourite sweets, chocolate or crisps sitting on the counter and in the fridge there’s some fruit.

It’s going to be hard to resist nibbling on at least a few, right?

I mean, you might walk by it and go hit up a bit of fresh fruit, but what happens the next time you walk in? then the time after that?

You’re constantly relying on will power to walk past that sweetie bowl which is a very limited resource.

Now picture this, you walk into a room and there’s a bowl of fruit on the counter. No sweets, chocolate or crisps in sight.

Which room do you think is going to help you with your fat loss goals?

Which room do you think your going to make “good choices”?

Don’t give yourself  ‘the choice’…

You will lose – you might win a few mental battles but over time your will power will run out and you will lose.

Instead of having to constantly choose between good and bad, don’t give yourself that option!



  • Does your kitchen or living room have a fruit bowl?
  • Is your fridge full of fresh fruit and vegetables?
  • Is your fridge full of fresh meat, poultry and fish?
  • Is your freezer full of meat, poultry and fish?
  • Do you have home made meals ready to grab if in a rush?
  • Do you have home made meals frozen and ready to be taken out the freezer when needed?


  • Does your kitchen or living room have sweets, chocolate or crisps in sight?
  • Is your fridge full of sugary drinks?
  • Is your fridge full of ready made microwave meals that don’t offer much nutritional value?
  • Is your cupboards full of processed, high calorie snacks and meals?
  • Is your freezer full of chips, pizzas, micromeals, ice cream etc?


One of those will help you reach your goals faster than the other.

It’s all about choices.

Don’t make fat loss harder by living in the second house!

Don’t give yourself the option to “be bad”.
