What I Think

When your level of belief about a new rule you set for yourself becomes stronger than your current belief, then you will reach your goals.. Belief comes first, Results come second. Decide to define your own reality .Change is good, especially when it improves your life. Make 6 simple changes to have lasting results in your fitness.

Change #1- Make a New Rule for yourself. Decide how you want to look and feel. Your body will adapt, that’s what it does. If you eat too much of the wrong foods, your body adapts and get bigger. If you eat too little, your body adapts and stores the little food you eat as fat so it can use it later since you are not eating enough.(side note, just because your thin does not mean you are healthy, check your body composition). If you exercise, you get healthier. If you don’t, you become unhealthy. You get my point, you get what you decide to get.

Change #2- You must move more. Cardio - I’m not talking about walking or riding the stationary bike at the gym while reading the newspaper. Or going for a walk after dinner around the block. Don’t get me wrong, those are activities, if your goal is to just stay active. But if your goal is to change body composition, I’m talking about exercise that raises your heart rate. I know I just lost a few of you because of the lazy factor but if your new rule is strong, you have to understand the difference between exercise and an activity. 

 Change #3- You must eat to live, proper food intake. I think this is the area where most people have problems. I can talk for days about this one but let’s make a simple rule that should cover things. Calories In - Calories Out. Depending on my goals, if I consume 2000 cal and my goal is to lose weight, than I must create a deficit, so I have to burn 2500 cal. There is a formula that will guide you as to how many calories you should consume a day depending on age and metabolic rate. Do things in moderation, I don't believe in diets or anything that makes you deprive yourself of what you like but if I like chocolate cake, I cant eat it every day, but once and a while wont kill you and definitely on the days when I do my cardio workout.

Change #4- Proper whole food supplementation. Supplements are important, especially these days because of the amount of junk they put in the food. It’s harder then ever to get the nutrients our bodies need. Also meal replacements, bars, shakes anything that shows you exactly what your eating, ( Carbs, Protein, Fats ) are great when your goal is weight loss.

Change #5- Resistance training- yes, hit the weights. You will not only strengthen your muscles, but bones also. More muscle, more fat burneds.The more efficient the metabolism, not to mention the added bonus of changing your appearance, just that simple.

 Change # 6- Deal with the body adapting to change. In about 6-8 weeks, your body will adapt to your workout and you will have to change your workout to keep moving forward. That’s the time to contact me so I can adjust your program.
