6 Tips To Completely Avoid The Weight Gain Trap

The obesity epidemic is driving me crazy!

Every time I leave the house I can’t help but notice all of the unhealthy people walking around. I am to the point where I want to go up to people and simply tell them that it’s not entirely their fault.

While we certainly choose what we put into our bodies, we are surrounded by marketing campaigns drawing us closer to foods and brands that claim to have your best interest in mind. We can’t even trust the health professionals anymore. They are giving out meds before even diagnosing the problem.

A money centered economy leaves huge gaps in the health and well-being of others. These doctors are quick to write a script without even thinking first about trying to treat the problem with whole foods or all natural supplements.

Why?

Well, it’s very simple when you think about it… Does your doctor make any money when he or she tells you to go out and buy a bunch of bananas?

Does he or she get wined and dined by the pharmaceutical reps for recommending fruit?

I use bananas because I am going “bananas”. The reality is bananas could be anything from super-foods to herbs and/or spices to simple whole foods that you see every time you visit your local supermarket.

6 WAYS TO AVOID THE WEIGHT GAIN TRAP

WholeFoods1-300x199

1. Question everything, even conventional wisdom

I want you to get into the habit of questioning everything you see and hear. I want you to even question my content. If you get lax and let my content slide then chances are you’ll begin to let other pieces of information slide, too. No! Question it all, mine included.

2. Don’t be afraid to ask questions

If a professional doesn’t take the time to answer you what does that say about him or her and the philosophies they stand for. I welcome all questions all of the time. Find me on one of the social platforms and see just how many questions I am answering in a day.

3. Be skeptical of “the talkers”

Be skeptical of anyone who recommends anything that they too don’t follow themselves. Say “oh yeah, if it’s so good for me then why aren’t you doing or taking it”? You’ll hear this… crickets…

Aside from questioning everything what else can we do?

Simple daily disciplines as Jeff Olson, author of The Slight Edge would say. You have to start making smart decisions. One at a time is all that’s required to get circumstances working in your favor.

4. Implement some exercise

Walk, jog, ride a bike, give your kids some attention. Start with 15 minutes.

5. Start looking at your eating habits

The best way to attack this is to keep a daily journal. Write down everything from liquids to solids and the times of these consumptions. After 7 days review the information.

Ask yourself; am I eating greens, lean meats, fruits, nuts, or seeds. Now ask yourself where can I slowly insert these types of foods. Heck pick one meal or one snack and start there. Or better yet, sign up for a Custom Meal Plan and have us do the work for you.

Remember, progress is progress no matter how big or small.

6. Read something, anything.

Find a topic you enjoy and search for a blog or download a book. Even listening to an informative podcast is a solid move in the right direction. Again begin with 15 minutes a day.

Plan, do, review and question it all.

According to the latest report by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) that our adult obesity rate has reached as high as 34.7% in Louisiana and Alabama. In another 41 states, the obesity rate has reached at least 25%.

We’ve got to wake up.

If you haven’t spent a lot of time with me via social media Twitter and/or Facebook than you don’t know this yet, but I am here to help. Lean on me and let’s get fit together.

3 Ways To Burn Fat & Boost Your Metabolism At Home

Are you burning fat at the rate you want?

If the answer is no, then you need to focus on cranking up your metabolism.

This can be done from the comfort of your own home.

So, if you want to use a resistance training program to lose weight, there are a few things to keep in mind. These things will ensure that you burn the maximum amount of fat possible.

Let’s take a look at some key things to remember:

Consider A Circuit Approach

homeworkout-300x202

The first thing to think about is structuring your program so that it’s a circuit training set-up.  Circuit training is going to have you moving from one exercise to the next, as quickly as possible, with hardly any rest periods in between.

Because of this, it tends to produce the absolute best metabolic boosts possible, causing you to burn off calories at an accelerated pace for the hour’s post-training.  In fact, you can burn calories for up to 24 hours after an intense training session.

If you want to increase post-exercise calorie burn; aka the “after-burn” effect, circuit training is an effective way.  Just be sure to challenge yourself and lift heavy enough weights to keep resistance up for high intensity and maximum results.

Cardio Intervals

Next, you need to add intervals of cardio 
if you aren’t going to implement circuit training into your resistance training.

Place short bouts of cardio in between sets when you’d typically be resting.  This will keep your heart rate higher throughout the workout and allow you to ‘kill two birds with one stone’, avoiding long, boring and repetitious cardio training afterward.

Here are some of the best exercises and combined movements for your circuit training program:

-mountain climbers
-burpees
-jumping jacks
-jump squats
-box jumps

Don’t Forget About Your Diet

Lastly, but most importantly, do not forget about your diet.

Diet is one of the most crucial things, and you’ll need to be disciplined if you want to ensure lasting success in health and fitness and the easiest way to do this is to get on a Custom Meal Plan. Many people think that they can just exercise their way to fat loss, however, you’re in for a rude awakening if you don’t balance your life with a healthier diet.

If you aren’t making better choices in the kitchen, it’s going to be very difficult to accomplish health and wellness.  Once you get going, don’t look back; because once you get there, you’ll wonder why you waited so long.

Always make sure you are aware of what you’re eating throughout the day, if you’re conscious of it, you can control it. Crash diets are a no-no and can cause more harm than good. Remember that the goal is long-term success and sustainability.

Let’s get fit together!
