Episode #10 of the course How to outsource your diet by Liam Smith


Welcome to the final lesson!

I’m excited for you.

Over the last nine days, you’ve learned a lot. You now know what a virtual assistant is and how to hire one, how to clarify your diet goals, how to automate recipe choices, and how to write a fool-proof request to outsource almost any task. You’ve also discovered five meal planning hacks and ten cooking hacks. Go you!

As a final review, let’s recap three key takeaways:

Why most diets fail. Losing weight, changing diets, and eating well are relatively easy in the short run, as any decent tactic will help you get there. The problem is that these tactics, which are often low-calorie or restrictive diets, do not work in the long run—that’s why so many people struggle with obesity and diet-related illness. To achieve long-lasting results, you need a strategy—something that works for your goals and your lifestyle, even when your willpower is lacking and life is hectic.

How outsourcing of diet works. Many strategies appear complex and time consuming. That’s why people love buying tactics instead of strategies (even if they don’t last). Outsourcing your diet combines the best of both worlds. It provides a long-term strategy you can use to stick to your new diet and makes it easy and quick to do so. It works by literally getting someone else to do the hard parts of eating well for you—from choosing what to eat to writing lists and even doing your shopping.

What you can do to hack your diet. Getting started with outsourcing your diet is straightforward. The steps have been laid out for you over the last nine days, with ready-to-use templates to make things even easier. To recap, you need to hire a virtual assistant (a person, based in a different location), choose your diet preferences, automate your recipe selections (create a virtual cookbook), set up an online shopping account, write fool-proof instructions to your assistant, put it to the test, and improve over time. Complete these six simple steps and your diet will be on autopilot. All that’ll be left for you to do is enjoy the cooking and eating!

Finally, to wrap things up …

I started diet hacking nearly two years ago, and it’s been quite a ride. I’ve gone from ready-meal junkie to dedicated healthy eater and saved bags of time, money, and stress in the process. What’s surprised me most, however, is how simple my life has become. That’s why I feel compelled to share my method with you, so you may achieve similar results.

But to get to that point, you must be willing to give it a go. You can expect a few bumps in the road—nothing works perfectly the first time, after all. You’ve already invested your time and energy in learning how you can dominate your diet. Now, you need to take decisive action and put this into practice.

Wanting change is step one, but step two is taking it. Are you willing to take step two?

I trust you are.

Good luck!
