Why is it so hard?
Why is it so complicated?
Read this article, do this, read that article, do the complete opposite. It all sucks. It’s confusing and it mostly it just wastes your time.
Why is it so hard to find good, useful advice that people can use to lose weight???
To me it’s pretty simple. DIET, EXERCISE & MINDSET.
? What! Can’t be that simple?
Or is it?
Forget the fads and the hype. DIET to me, just means what you eat day in, day out. Not some 6 – 12 week soul crushing experience that would put a professional fighter to shame. No!
As the ‘KISS’ principle states (Keep It Simple Stupid), lets keep things simple.
Simple? What do you mean by simple, I hear you say. OK I’ll try my best to explain.
No processed products. What is a processed product? Easy, ask this question: Can you find it in nature as it is or very close? If the answer is no, then it is a processed product. Simple.
Can you find sugar on the forest floor?
Can you dig bread up out of the ground?
Can you find pasta growing on trees?
No, no and no, Why? Because their processed foods and products.
So stick to natural foods as much as possible. You don’t need to follow a specified or special diet, just start with healthy natural foods.
Is it that easy? No. Quantity matters too. If you eat too much or too little, this will affect you. If you eat too much of one thing or a few things, that will lead to problems too.
So what are you trying to say? Eat a balanced diet including: vegetables, legumes, fruit, meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, nuts, seeds, milk, etc…
But I’m alergic to this or that: “Don’t eat it if your alergic to it!”
But I don’t like to eat those foods, where is the chocolate, alcohol, soda, bread, pasta, meat pies and pizza.
Well, I refer you back to the above question: Can you find it in nature as it is or very close?
Maybe you need to reflect on your reasons for eating these foods, really reflect on the issue.
Take some time to further reflect on why you want to lose weight.
Why do you want to lose weight? Really why?
What health concerns do you have?
You wouldn’t be here reading this if you weren’t concerned for you health.
We all get lazy, we all get apathetic to life and our situation, and look forward to a binge of whatever you like.
Me, I love pizza and cola on a Friday night hanging out with friends, after a big week of work and training.
But come Saturday morning, and I’m feeling not the best, I know why and what I’ve done to myself.
I’ve poisoned myself, and my body is hating me for it. So back on the bandwagon, with fasting and fluids, to recover.
Does this make me stupid, yeah maybe, I’m no vegetarian, I’m no strict dietarian.
I know my body runs best, with good food, so for the most part I eat healthy, or as healthy as I can.
You owe it to yourself, to be healthy, to be fit, to live life.
