The Fat Problem
Having high levels of body fat is detrimental to your health. You know this already. The average body fat in the western World is 30% and is going to rise in the next decade unless more steps are taken to improve health and reduce body fat. Having a high body fat percentage is usually the start to many life shortening illnesses, but levels are still on the rise despite efforts to improve health and wellness across the World.
With the average person sitting at around 30%, it doesn’t take a goal of becoming fitness model lean to improve your health and life expectancy. Just stripping off even 5, 10, or even 15%, will work wonders. Improving your health shouldn’t include unrealistic goals, sometimes its just about doing enough to make sure you don’t get out of breath climbing the stairs.
You want to feel alive. Energetic. Awake and productive. So what’s stopping you? You probably don’t realise, that just shedding some body fat will help you achieve these things. You’ll be the life of the party, you’ll have that non stop energy and people will want to know what ‘you’re on’ as you just keep going. Do you remember the last time you felt like that? Chances are you were a lot younger and probably carrying a lot less fat.
So it’s time to get you into those jeans sitting in the back of the wardrobe. Hell, it’s time to go shopping for a whole new wardrobe. No more untucking your shirts to hide your gut, no more all black dress code because it’s ‘slimming’, time to start buying the new clothes you deserve and feel amazing wearing them.
What To Do
Dieting alone, doesn’t work. Yes you read that right. Dieting doesn’t work. Drastically cutting out calories, juice cleanses, paprika and lemon juice concoctions, it’s all just hocus pocus. Yes you’ll need to make some adjustments in calories at some point, but that’s exactly what they are, adjustments, not drastic changes.
You may not want to hear it, but exercise will give you much better changes then just dieting alone. You see dieting alone may cause you to lose a bit of weight, but the way you do it will dictate how you look at the end of the process.
You can decide if you look tight firm and toned, or whether you look saggy and soft when that dress comes off. It’s up to you…
Do This Now
Time to start exercising and watching what you eat. But where do you start? What foods should you eat? When should you eat them? How much protein should you have? What time of the day should you eat your carbs? How should you exercise? How many times a week? Is weight loss alone enough to indicate progress? You can have the answer to all these questions and many more.
