Are we getting fatter simply because we make bad choices?
Are we simply eating too much AND choosing NOT to move enough?
Is the food industry producing addictive foods?
Is our environment overfilled with food?
The media jumps on the popular hype which is being pushed by our government!
We hear it every day – eat less – move more!
If you’ve ever tried that – and it’s just the same as restricting calories. You lose scale weight for a while, but as soon as you sat normal amounts of food the weight likes back on!
You will gain fat quicker than ever…
So. What do you do? Try again? Just to prove that you are a failure at trying to ‘diet’. Probably you’ll give up.
Strangely, that might be the best thing to do….
A 20 year study where chimpanzees were given a calorie controlled diet actually GAINED 30% weight every decade!
[Proc Biol Sci 278(1712):1626-32.doi:10.1098/RSPB.2010.1890]
So, PLEASE please don’t blame your will power (I don’t believe it exists)
It’s expected that MOST (60%) adults will be obese by 2030!
[Journal of Preventative Medicine – 32:5. Pp536-570, June 2012
Over the coming decade sits expected that more people will due as a result of Obesity – 120 Million- that’s more than 3 times the number if ALL deaths from ALL wars since 1900.
Our government is about to start yet another scheme to pay Ives people as they lose weight! Offering free gym memberships didn’t work – I believe this will be another massive waste of money.
Obesity is much more than simply poor food choices or being a couch potato !
Here’s my recipe…..
Start by banning ‘Diet’. ‘Lite’ and ‘Low Fat’ foods.
Eat real food
Avoid anything with added sugar
If you can’t pronounce the ingredients don’t eat it.
3 simple meals everyday
2 snacks – no sugar or salt
Eat protein at every meal – and snack
Drink more water
Eat fruit daily
Eat more veggies than fruit
If you don’t want to eat it DONT but it
Eat processed, convenience foods less
Go for long, slow relaxed walks every week – or more.
Learn to relax
Switch Off your tech 1 hour before you go to bed
Get better quality sleep
You see it’s more about lifestyle and attitude than calories in and calories out!
Be happy, don’t stress and your body will heal itself if you give it half a chance and the right stuff!
Eat Clean. Train Smart. Feel Better!
