What To Do Next

Sometimes you run into people who are constantly trying to reinvent themselves. We see this over and over again especially in the areas of health and wellness. How many different flavor of the month workout programs and diets are we exposed to each year. Let me take just a second to cut through some of the bull shit. For the most part when it comes to physical fitness everything is based upon scientific fact and how those facts affect the body. Here is the long and short of it. If you hold to these principles you can guarantee success. First of all, it is necessary to move in order for your body to stay fit. This will always hold true whether you are playing a sport, taking pilates, yoga, aerobics, boxing, spinning, taking a walk, doing P90x, following Richard Simmons sweating to the oldies, running, biking, swimming, or just having sex. Your body needs to move in order to stay fit. Secondly, if something hurts in a bad way, stop doing it. Your body has a defense mechanism for a reason and more times than not it knows what it was made to do and what it wasn't (this is not to suggest that things shouldn't be difficult, but real pain should be listened to). Third, your diet doesn't have to be a deep and mysterious adventure. Your body requires protein. It also requires carbohydrates and fats. If you don't get some of each, you can count on problems. Your body also needs vitamins and will give you problems without them. Finally, let me unlock the facts of weight loss. It is called the Law of Thermodynamics. All this means is that if you use more than you have you lose. In your bodies case, the unit of measurements is calories. Let me repeat, if you burn more calories than you take in, you will lose weight. This Is A Scientific Law! If this is not working for you and you are seriously positive that you are taking in less calories than you are burning and still not losing weight, you need to seek medical advice asap because something else is going on. That should help dismiss some of the rumors and fads that inevitably are crawling out of the wood work. Keep in mind this is a thousand foot view on a subject that has a lot of detailed niches but if you can follow the advice, it works. Now let's go to work!
