You can’t out-exercise your food. In order to lose weight simply and easily, you need to eat less more than you need to exercise more!
Is it running? Is it hiking? Is it weight lifting? Is it yoga or dance?
Here’s the big reveal – The ONE AND ONLY perfect exercise is…..drum roll please… the one you want to do, whatever at all that might be!
If you had the chance to read one of my recent posts sharing the insight that — “weight loss and fitness programs don’t fail because we don’t know what to do, rather they fail because we don’t do it”, then this post will make perfect sense.
This guy knows what to do. Eat that delicious salad for lunch, not a bacon burger. And go for a nice long walk after work. Everybody knows that. But guess what, he ain’t getting off the couch to do it.
Here’s the thing – any sensible eating and physical activity program is going to work. You might not know exactly what to do right now. But you can be sure that programs like A2BFastFit – First Things First and others will tell you exactly what simple and easy things you need to do to lose weight and reach your fitness goals. So learning what to do is the easy part.
The thing is, once people know what to do, they usually don’t do it!
It’s super hard to out-exercise what you eat. There are too darn many calories in the unhealthy foods we’re tempted by each day. So you’ll lose weight faster and easier by eating less more than by exercising more. It’s WAY easier to pass on that Snickers Bar than it is to log another hour on the treadmill. In fact I’m guessing that you’re really glad to hear this.
For most of us, the first step to getting to our best body is shedding a few (or a lot) of unwanted pounds. Once the pounds start to come off we can begin to see and work on the toned muscles. But we begin to look great just by losing that unwanted weight.
Losing weight is really, really simple. You just need to eat fewer calories than you burn each day. For every 3500 calories less compared to what you burn you lose a pound of fat. So over the days and short number of weeks the pounds come off.
