Luke was successful because he embraced the key principles of a healthy lifestyle rather than wasting his time with temporary weight loss shortcuts. Instead of buying diet pills, starving himself and hanging out in the sauna, he replaced unhealthy junk with healthy foods, monitored his calorie intake and increased his physical activity level.
The difference between Luke and those that failed was that the failures wasted their time with weight loss solutions that didn't work. Instead of making healthy food choices, they ate everything they saw, instead of working hard at the gym, they used an elliptical machine for 15 minutes and instead of striving for a healthy lifestyle, they were only concerned with losing weight as quickly as possible.
When you think of weight loss as a temporary diet, you're already setting yourself up for failure. Temporary diets stop when you reach a certain goal. Once the goal is met, you go back to your old, unhealthy habits and start gaining the weight right back. By thinking of your transformation as a permanent, long term goal, you're much more likely to make slow changes that will stick over time rather than quick changes that you can't sustain.
