The truth about fat loss is so simple, that it is hard to do. For starters, I hope you noticed that I used the term fat loss instead of weight loss. This was purposeful in an attempt to change your views about how you view your journey. Our weight is a mere reflection of our body as a whole, our bone density, water weight, our muscles and our fat. When people say that they want to “lose weight”, they actually mean they want to get rid of the layer of fat that covers our muscles. I’ve never met anyone who said they wanted to lose their fat and muscle. So realistically, the true journey we wish to embark upon is fat loss.
If we are speaking honestly, and very frankly with one another, there is no magical way to lose fat. Weight related issues have reated a billion dollar industry, and we all buy into it. We would rather believe that a miracle pill or fad diet will solve all of our probelms rather than to be honest with ourselves about what needs to be done.
Truth: to lose fat all we need is to make healthy food choices, and exercise regularly. It’s that simple. The type of exercise you choose to do really isn’t relevant when it comes to simply eliminating fat. Simply start moving. If you have specific goals in mind, there are different types of training that will help you achieve your goals. To get started, all you really need is yourself.
Take a sedentary person who wants to make a physical change, for example. If they start off by replacing 1 hour of television, with one hour of walking in their neighborhood, their transition will begin. Days will turn into weeks, weeks into months and months into years. And in that hour of walking, they will shed fat, build lean muscle and they will continue to cover more distance within that one hour of walking. As they begin to see results, they will more than likely want more out of their workout, which means that they will either extend the time of their workout, or will look for alternative methods of training. The point that I am making is that all you have to do is start moving.
Once you start moving, and you start seeing changes, you become more aware of the things you choose to eat. Your body is less inclined to crave unhealthy food choices and you are more likely to start wondering how much more progress your body will make if you start eating healthier. You start taking better care of yourself because you now have a vested interest.
Interest in nutrition and supplementation will develop as you continue to invest in yourself, and your newly evolving lifestyle. Simply make the choice to start moving and once you do, everything else will fall into place. I am here to help you along the way and will share my own journey in the process.
Don’t waste your money on gimmicks. Look for things that will support your efforts, but keep it simple. In the mean time, if you click on my tab called “Favorites”, I am more than happy to share the things benefitting me on my journey.
