5 Things that you have to keep on doing (WARNING: Sarcasm Ahead)

September 30, 2015

 

 

#1:  Keep eating foods that are said to be "Lean", "Low Fat", Low Sugar", "No Sugar" or "Fat Free"...This is the greatest gimmick that the food industry has ever pulled on the human race.  These processed foods are full of chemicals that are not intended for humans to consume, and by the way our over all heath as humans goes, these foods are making us sicker!  When you take a natural macro or micro-nutrient out of a food you must then replace it with a filler, and this is when things get unhealthy.  If they take fat out of something, they just add a crap load of sugar to it.  If they take sugar out of something, they just add in an artificial chemical that has been made in a lab.  Eat real foods / It's that simple / Your food should grow mold and/or die...

 

#2:  Keep buying Treadmills, Ellipticals  Bow Flexes, Thigh Masters, Fitness DVDs and of course, no dust collecting set is complete without the Shake Weight...The reason we all are suckered into buying this stuff is because companies spend millions on advertisements and are good at what they do.  But these suck money out of our pockets at a rapid rate.  You're way better off investing in a trainer and actually learning how the body works and how it needs to move...

 

#3:  Keep bragging about your 4,000 pound Leg Press PR and always avoid Squats because they hurt your knees...Certain exercise machines give the lifter a mechanical advantage, like the Leg Press.  Many lifters unfortunately lift with their egos and not for technique.  This is why you'll see a lot of Smith Machine Bench Pressing, Leg Pressing, Bent Elbow Lateral Raises and a ton of terrible Lat Pull Downs instead of Chin Ups.  Before you brag about anything (which should be never), you better have ALL the Basics down in the gym:  The Push Up / The Squat / The Dead Lift / The Chin Up / The Over Head Press / The Carry / The Swing / The Clean.  These lifts take years to Master and are part of a very slow micro-progressive program that makes you lean, strong and healthy for the long haul.  Check the ego and do all the basic lifts and forget about the new fancy crap...

 

#4:  Keep moving as much as a Leg-Less Dog.  The human body NEEDS movement and the bare minimum doesn't cut it.  If you don't move well and move often, you will pay the price.  The proof is in our society - look around at the millions of out of shape, obese Americans that are almost totally sedentary.  Diabetes is preventable but we choose to sit on our asses and eat junk foods.  High cholesterol is preventable (in most cases), heart attacks are preventable, many cancers are preventable.  Most diseases that we eat pills for are preventable with a very simple fix:  Get Moving!!  Lift weights, run, hike, walk, bike, swim, play outside, throw rocks in the lake, crawl around like a bear, do something everyday and eat real foods as much as possible...

 

#5:  Keep complaining that you're broke and feel like crap when 80% of your meals are eaten outside of your home (or delivered).  Eating out is expensive - Trust me I've done the math / The average American spends $15 eating out on food per day (and that's being VERY conservative) 7 Days a week x $15 = That's $105 dollars Per Week / That's $420 Per Month / That's $5040 Per Year...Five Thousand a Year!!!  Plus, the food we eat out is usually junk and isn't good for us.  This is why many people are struggling financially and feel like shit because their bodies are full of chemicals.  I talk to people all day long and I can immediately tell how they live.  If you're tired all the time, have headaches all the time, are moody all the time, depressed all the time and just feel like over all crap, chances are you're not living properly.  Your priorities may be warped / It's time you revamp whats important and start treating yourself properly.  If you aren't healthy how can you be a good Daddy, Mommy, Co-Worker, Friend, Lover or Boss.  You have to feel good about you and that will rub off on others.  Start cooking your meals at home and save that $5,000 a year...
