I swear, I say this.. but then I get to the gym and something comes over me and I simply must go hard.
I tell my friends all the time - you want to eat more? Then get serious about lifting weights. You will need to feed those muscles!
The biggest thing to take away from these tips is: The less you think about it, the better :-)
This is my philosophy.
Funny how the higher the number in iron, the lower my body fat number is.
The benefits are endless.
Find something you enjoy and do it.
Why aren’t you?
I’m not going to lie; when I’m doing boring as cardio indoors - I’m scooping on the guys that are lifting.
I’m getting a bike sometime soon.
I’m looking forward to the extra burn on the way to the gym and home.
Plus, it’s just fun!
Oh, it will run.. just not well, and it would hold onto every single ounce of fat on your body because it’s in starvation mode.
One of the first things I had to learn and really accept was that I had to eat. I was one of those fat people who never really ate much. My daily caloric intake was around 600-800, including soda. Eating made me feel sick so I only did it when I absolutely had to. Once I learned how to eat properly, so that I was fueling my body and working toward goals… I learned to enjoy food. My range is 1650-2000 now. It took over a year and a half to get it that high.
Once I started eating right - the rest just fell into place. I started building muscle, losing weight, and feeling so, so much better in general.
Love and adore your body so much that you want to make it the best it can be.
It’s not like hating your body had any positive effects.
Give it a try.
