Mind-Driven Fat Loss: Jon McLernon

Frustrated by diets that fail and non-stop food cravings?

Utilize behavioral psychology techniques to address your relationship with food that allow you to lose weight without dieting.

Coach Jon is a Precision Nutrition Level 2 Master Coach and head coach of Freedom Nutrition Coaching.  From Nanotechnology Researcher, to Marine Engineer, to globetrotting English teacher, he’s had a pretty interesting journey. Amidst the crazy adventures of life, he went through serious trauma while living in South Africa, and his weight ballooned up to 328lbs. He grappled with PTSD, binge-eating, and medicated his trauma with food. Name a diet. He’s probably tried it. He didn’t just magically lose 100lbs overnight.

And his conclusion: DIETS SUCK.

When he says “diets suck” he means, they basically suck the joy out of life.

So, when he founded Freedom Nutrition Coaching, he said forget all the flashy, fad BS. His approach to physique transformation is simple, effective, and founded on time-tested, scientifically validated principles.

No quick-fix scams. No overpriced garbage supplements. No restrictive fad diets. No endless cardio. No belly wraps or Vaseline rubs. None of that works. If it did, people wouldn’t be dropping $200 billion a year on it.

Instead, driven by compassion and real-life experience, he focuses on behavioral psychology and unravelling emotional ties to food, to help his clients not only lose weight, but to live a vibrant life that they truly enjoy, so that they never have to diet again.

In this episode, we discuss:

– Jon’s journey through trauma, food addiction, and back to wellness

– Why diets fail

– Mind-driven weight loss: why mindset is the first step in any fat loss journey

– The FAST snacking method

– Nutrition agnosticism

– Why taking photos of meals is helpful for weight loss

– The problems with an intuitive eating approach

– The HERO mindset approach to successful weight maintenance
