Fat To Fit In One Word.

Fat To Fit In One Word.

Fat to fit (i.e. weight loss)?

Weight loss is simple (although not easy). It is a matter of calories in vs calories out - you cannot escape this equation. This means eating less and moving more. 

  • Portion control.
  • Limiting calorie-dense foods.
  • Eat fewer calories.
  • Choosing lower calorie and less calorie dense food, and by avoiding large calorie extras.
  • Avoid drinking calories.
  • Little activities add up, so take the stairs when you can, walk when you can, and spend more time in recreation that involves moving rather than sitting.
  • Weigh yourself weekly - make adjustments as necessary.

It’s a lifelong marathon. Not a sprint.

Keeping track of how much you eat - which can be deceptively difficult to do.

There is no exercise in a pill.

Do something you enjoy as you are much more likely to keep up with it.

A recent study published in American Journal of Preventive Medicine showed that simply keeping a daily diary of food intake doubled total weight loss in a 5 month study (participants who kept a diary lost an average of 17.5 pounds).

So how does one get from FAT TO FIT (besides reading this blog).

It’s not a secret.  You don’t need to get caught up in all the hoopla.

And it doesn’t matter who or what you look like.

EAT LESS. MOVE MORE.

 

That’s it. EAT LESS. MOVE MORE.

Can’t move too much? Don’t eat so much.

Move a lot? Eat more. 

Don’t get caught up in health industry gimmicks, trends, or money sucking schemes.  You can certainly use gyms, trainers, personal chefs but you don’t NEED them. No one does.  Nor do you NEED a Lexus. A Chevy will get you to your destination too. 

A good pair of shoes and some pavement. MOVE.

A suit and a pool. MOVE.

A jump rope and some rhythm. MOVE.

A mountain and some sunblock. MOVE.

A pair of rollerblades and a park. MOVE.

A treadmill in the privacy of your own home. MOVE.

A floor mat. A rug. (sit-ups). MOVE.

Push-ups. MOVE.

A bike. MOVE

MOVE. MOVE. MOVE.

 

So FAT TO FIT?

MOVE.
