Fast easy weight loss is not only possible, it’s inevitable as long as you follow a few simple diet guidelines. In today’s world of breakneck speed, we want everything fast. Fast cars, fast internet, fast women. . . OK maybe not all of us want fast women. I was just making sure that you were paying attention! I think you get the point though. We want whatever we want and we want it now.
[Remember this scene from the movie, Stripes? My hobbies are fast cars and fast women, that's why the guys in my car club call me cruiser. Should of called him the dork! What a great movie! There are so many classic lines in this movie. If you never saw it, you have to check it out!]
Weight loss is no different. Once we decide to lose weight, we want to lose it fast and easy. We don’t want to hear about losing a pound a week or dieting and exercise. We want to lose 30 pounds in 30 days, while sitting on our couch, and while you’re at it, throw in the guy or girl of our dreams, right?
There is such a thing as fast and easy weight loss, but this isn’t the land of make believe! That kind of stuff is dreamed up in the little heads of the diet industry’s marketing experts, but doesn’t really work in the real world. The good news is that once you get your daily eating habits straightened out, you will lose weight fast and it will be easy. In fact, it will actually be the easiest thing that you have ever done in regards to fitness and weight loss regardless of how old you are.
Anyone that has read much of my posts know that I am all about keeping it simple. Tell me what works and leave it at that, I don’t need to know as much about why things work, just if they work. That being said, when it comes to diet and how food affects your body, I can’t get enough information. I am actually getting a little obsessed!
My Driving Force
I am going to get a little personal here and tell you one of the reasons that I am the person that I am. Twenty one years ago, my Father died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 50. I was 21 years old and as much as I tried to be strong, it has affected me more than anything else in my life. It still affects me, my mother, my sister, and my two brothers. I can honestly say that there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about him and what it would be like to have him around to see my three sons.
My Father dying at such an early age has been the driving force in my workouts ever since. I always thought that if I can stay in shape and eat right, maybe I can have a different outcome. I really want to be around for my kids. I want to see them get married, have children, and I want to spoil the shit out of any grand kids that I have!
Of course, I have no idea what the future holds, but at least if I do everything right, then in my mind I should be at peace no matter what happens. I will feel that I did everyhting that I can do when I had the chance. I always exercised and lifted weights, but never paid much attention to my diet. I was always pretty lean and could eat close to whatever I wanted.
Age 50 is my mental hurdle
At age 41 with this mental hurdle of age 50 creeping closer and closer, I am finally serious about the diet part of this health equation. I realized after reading some incredible books such as “The Primal Blueprint” from Mark Sisson and Dr. Bruce Lipton’s “The Biology of Belief” that our diet is more important than anything else. I now eat a whole lot less carbs, avoid empty calories and sugars, and eat plenty of lean meats, vegetables and fruits.
The best part about eating healthier is that it simply does make fast easy weight loss a reality. I recently talked about the affects of insulin on your body and how too much carbohydrates will make you fat and keep you fat in my post, Secret to losing weight. If you haven’t read it yet, you should check it out.
I will be talking more about a proper diet and the effects of insulin on your body in future posts. I realize that making a lifestyle change is not easy and changing your diet might seem to be one of the hardest things to do. In reality though, if you eat the way that your body is designed for you to eat, you will feel more full and satisfied as well as have way more energy everyday. You also will never worry about counting calories and eating too much.
Simple formula that actually works
A simple formula that will work for anyone is to use intermittent fasting one or two times a week and eat properly during the remaining days. If you do this, you will see fast and easy weight loss and never worry about how to lose weight or what the newest fad diet is ever again.
