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.
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
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
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.
A bike. MOVE
MOVE. MOVE. MOVE.
So FAT TO FIT?
