Everyone wants and easy button… The quick fix to fitness. Look great with little work and no dieting.
The fitness industry is full of these quick fixes.Everything from drinking shakes all day, to eating one meal a day, to “flexible dieting” to weight loss tea. I’ve seen them all.
The problem is they are mostly all snake oil. They don’t work.
What I can honestly tell you is there is no short cut to exercise and eating healthy foods. If is sounds too good to be true then it likely is.
The good news is that as long as you put in time and energy you will get rewards. You don’t have to be working out 2 hours a day (that actually is bad for you) and you don’t have to live on salad.
These simple two rules will help you get fit and healthy fast!
1. Exercise to a pint where you heart rate is up and you are sweating at heavily and sweating, you aren’t really working.
2. Cut out as much refined sugar in your diet as possible (there is no good sugar unless it’s natural sugar in fruit) and making sure you eat five small meals a day will change you body and how you feel dramatically.
Don’t overeat ie. until you feel stuffed. When you feel satisfied, stop eating. And skip dessert. You don’t need it and your waist line doesn’t want it.
Follow those two rules and you will be much more fit and healthy!
