Look Better Naked This Summer: 9 Lessons In Body Composition Transformation by Andrew Ferreira
Nevermind the vain title, this article is fantastic.
Of course exercise and nutrition are key if you want to look better naked, but Andrew writes about more than just working on improving those two components. He discusses habit change, tracking progress and getting help from a coach – ideas I believe strongly in as well here at Just Go Fitness.

Just Go Tips
- Choose one healthy habit to start working on today. This is something I preach constantly, but habit change leads to success. Plain as that. You could choose to add veggies to every meal, eat lean protein with each meal, eat healthy foods 90% of the time or something completely different. For one of my clients I had him start exercising during his lunch break at least 3 times per week. Start with one thing and go from there.
- Actually finish a workout program. How many times have you started a workout program and given up after only a week or two because you didn’t get instant results? Completing a program is key if you want to look better naked. A great program Andrew mentioned is Eric Cressey’s Show and Go program. Complete a program like this from the programming expert who is Eric Cressey and I promise you’ll see results.
- Track your progress. The measurements you decide to take will depend on your goal, but if you aren’t tracking anything it’s going to be difficult to see what’s actually working. Track your progress, repeat what has worked and stop doing things that don’t.
Andrew brings up many good points in this article and one of the best ones comes right at the end – Do it for yourself.
Ultimately, any change you want to make has to be for yourself, not simply to please others.
There is a great quote by Bill Cosby that supports this:
I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.
If you want to look better naked it’s important that you are doing it to make yourself feel better (Surely the acceptance from others will feel good too).
Regardless of your goal being to look better naked or just get in better overall shape, tracking your progress in some way can’t be overlooked.
This doesn’t mean you have to be counting calories (Which I don’t advise), but it does mean that you should keep track of what’s working and what’s not.
It becomes much easier to decide what to do next if you know what has worked in the past for you and what hasn’t.
What should you do next? Just go!
Choose something you can apply to your life and take action. What have you got to lose?
