A lot of people that are looking to get fit or lose some extra pounds are desperate to get that weight off and often times will buy into the quick fix or fad diets. Almost every time I turn on the TV there is some new fat burner or muscle builder or some crazy work out equipment that guarantees you’ll look like the people in the commercial in just 20 minutes a day.
I’m here to tell you that those quick fixes may sometimes work but you’ll be back to where you started in no time if you don’t keep it up, many times they don’t work at all and sometimes they can even be dangerous.
I have many people that haven’t seen me in months or years ask me how I lost the weight and every time I tell them the same thing; eating right!
Is that really all there is to it? Yes it is and there is the answer that you have been searching for, for all of these years.
I have even had someone tell me that “Cardio is essential to fat loss!”, which isn’t right either. I don’t do any cardio and it definitely didn’t get me to lose over 70 pounds in the last 3 years; it was eating right.
Now Im not going to bash cardio because it can be used to lose fat or train for a marathon but again when you stop all of that hard work, you’re right back to where you started. You can train, train, train, while eating bad and you might never get the results you have been looking for. The key to Fat loss is a proper diet, something that isn’t taught in school (don’t argue with me here, I know they teach the food pyramid, that’s not what I’m talking about.)
Everyone that is over weight and wants to lose that extra weight already knows that what they are doing right now isn’t working. Changing the way you eat will change the way that you look and feel. Take in the thoughts and advise from someone who has been in your shoes and accomplished what you want to accomplish. You don’t go to someone that hasn’t made a million dollars and ask them advice on your finances do you? I also encourage you to look at many different sources and form an educated opinion on the things that do work.
I hope to help others with what I have found to be successful for me and give you the same life skills that I have learned through some very generous friends that also lead a healthy life style.
