I have to admit when I first started this blog site my orginal intentions were to share information about performance training for athletes and performance minded individuals. I had not intended it to be a resource to help people lose body fat, but I discovered it is the goal of the majority of the people who seek out my help. With that being said, I have focused a lot of my time trying to teach the importance of nutrition because lets face it, you really are what you eat. If you eat a lot of crap, you generally will feel that way and the same is true if you eat strong foods like veggies, fruit, and lean protein. For many, exercise is a easier habit to develop. Unfortunately, exercise alone will not fix the problem of fat loss unless you are a high level athlete and being fit is how you make your living. Another aspect of obtaining your goal is your mindset. Lets face it, losing weight, bodyfat or whatever you want to call it is Fucking hard! Excuse my language but its true. More people fail at this than trying to do a cart wheel to impress a baby. It requires a lot of Focus, Determination, and Consistency. It requires a person to be honest with themselves about what they really want. For example, when a person ask me what they can do to lose bodyfat, I tell them to start keeping a fitness and nutrition journal and thats where are the excuses start to begin. A popular excuse is, " I don't have the time to do it," which is a lie. If you can find time to balance your check book, schedule appointments to get your hair done or more importantly check your pay stub at work to make sure you got paid all that was due to you, you can keep a journal to accomplish your health goals. But enough with the preaching, I found a article that really drives home the fundamentals of how to accomplish your weight loss goals, take what you can from it and apply it as quickly as possible. Weight loss like, Father Time waits on no one. Its like debt, it only stops growing when you stop doing what increases it.
To your success,
