We all have heard the statistics - 2 out of 3 American adults are either overweight or obese. And I am sure that many modern countries have similar statistics. We are also aware of the associated health risk.
And if you are reading this - chances are you are not happy with your body, worried about your health or you want to make some changes in your life.
And this is good news for you...
You see... we don't do anything until the pain of NOT doing it becomes greater than the pain of doing it. To put it in simpler terms - we don't do anything about our weight until we are so sick and tired of worrying about it that we actually start reading about weight loss, getting a health club membership and shopping for healthy foods.
However, most of us go about this the wrong way...
We tend to use the scattergun approach and run around trying to do everything that we think is right about reducing our weight. And the very first thing we generally do is finding some health magazines, buy some exercise junk from the info-commercials or read some of the latest diet fad books. We tend to look at these sources as the means to solving our weight problems.
Most of the weight loss programs or weight loss diets are frauds or too narrowly focused on obscure pseudo science. Where they once sought the elusive alchemist to make gold out of lead - we now do the same thing in our search for our goal of weight loss.
I hate to say; "I told you so" but... Most of the weight loss diets are wishful thinking and the Geneva Convention should ban most of the exercise programs out there.
Because the weight loss products don't work as we usually find out in a few weeks. And the manufacturers for the weight loss products that you bought are just laughing all the way to the bank.
That is right... The weight loss industry makes billions of dollars each year. And! Our society is getting fatter and fatter. Which leads to the conclusion... Most weight loss products don't WORK!
Read that again...
And forget about the diet pills. They can be dangerous for you...
I think many people in the weight loss industry should go to jail. It is criminal the way they promote their stuff when they know it doesn't work. For instance, how many times have you seen a stomach exercise thingy on info-commercial TV and said, "Wow!" But the truth of the matter is - nobody is EVER going to see your washboard stomach under all your fat...
What if I told you that we should naturally get the lean, muscular body that we want because that is how our bodies were designed by genetics?
Think about it this way, farming was invented around 10,000 years ago. For a million years up to farming - we thrived on hunting animals, eating fruits and berries, and digging for roots. We would walk everywhere on foot. We get things done with our hands.
And I bet you the last dollar in my pocket - we were extremely healthy and fit. And yeah, the average life span way back then was no more than 30 years old. That can be explained by the simple fact that nobody knew anything about medical care. So the simple things like broken bones or cuts were a death sentence.
But I digress...
So we started getting fatter after farming was invented and started eating more refined carbohydrates from grains and sugars.
And the modern life that we have chosen has made us so busy that we actually forgot how to walk around and use our muscles to gain strength.
Ever heard of the principle of Occam's Razor? "All things being equal, the simplest solution tends to be the best one."
The simplest reason why our society is getting fatter is because we are eating foods that make us fat and practice the sedentary lifestyle of sitting on the couch.
Losing weight to improve your health is an admirable goal. Keep this in mind when looking for weight loss tips - make this something YOU want to do.
