3 Tips for Healthy Weightloss

 

What is the fastest way to weightloss?

This is one of the top questions I am asked as a trainer.

So I came up with the top 3 tips to achieve healthy weightloss.

Hope we these help…

1. Don’t diet…change your lifestyle.
2. Keep ppl who encourage your healthy habits. Drop the negative people like the pounds you shed.
3. Make it a habit to exercise at least 30 minutes daily

A story about Jim

Today, I will tell fictional story about a young man.  Let’s say his name is Jim.
Jim just came from a visit with his doctor.
Good old doc told him that if he does not make some lifestyle changes, he is in danger of some serious health issues.
So Jim decides that today’s the day. He will listen to the doctor’s advice.  He will eat healthy and go to the gym.
Jim heads to the nearest grocery store. But he has never done “healthy shopping” before.
Shopping for Jim usually consists of food be can heat up quickly in the microwave and some diet soda.
He tries looking for healthy food options, but he is perplexed.
He says to himself…”Should i eat Kale? I heard that’s healthy right? But I’m no vegetarian.” So he moves on.
Maybe an all meat diet. Yea, Atkins right?  But, wait, didn’t that guy die of have a heart? No way, that’s out.
So Jim browses the cereal aisle. But he is overwhelmed with slogans and sugary cereals.
By now Jim is fed up…and hungry. He gives up his quest for healthy eating and heads to McDonald’s for a nice easy drive-through dinner.
Does Jim’s story sound familiar? Have you ever walked into the supermarket and felt overwhelmed?
Sadly, it is the story I hear all the time from too many people.
The good news is that Life is Hard . Fighting is Easy. will be rolling out a brand new Nutrition program.
Yes, it will be a nutrition plan only.  There are  no workouts required (although it always helps to meet your goal).

This program will help you if you have no clue about nutrition like poor Jimor if you are already in an exercise program and just need some guidance.
This is not just some expensive points program that sells you on their meal plan (i.e. Weightwatchers).
The program includes a customized nutrition plan to help you meet your specific goals.
The program will be rolled out before Thanksgiving, 2016, so be on the lookout.
So, let’s not be like Jim. Together, we can work together to fight for your health goals.

Martial Arts for Self Defense?

One of my many joys in both life is spreading knowledge about martial arts.

There are many myths and mistruths out there.

One, in particular, is the idea that if an individual practices martial arts, it automatically makes them invincible.

The idea that a martial artist can take out 20 guys at a time or catch bullets with their teeth is not always true. Although maybe so for Ip Man.

Another misconception is that a martial arts expert, be they a black belt or Pro MMA fighter, is adept at teaching self-defense.

Well, it may be true that martial artists may be well versed in the way of combat and most of us can intelligently defend ourselves (and don’t back down from a fight).

It is not true that we can teach you in an hour (or less) how to defend against every possible scenario that could occur in the street, nor are we trained to do so.

There is specific training that is required for self -defense and many scenarios that could occur including guns, knives, thugs, the size of Brock Lesner, attacking you.

Each scenario is different and requires you to react in different ways. There are self-defense experts who have trained these scenarios for several years. These are the individuals I would look to learn how to defend yourself.

In closing, I will leave you with this conversation I had with my Trainer years ago, specifically regarding Muay Thai.

Me: Can Muay Thai be used for self-defense purposes?

Trainer: Yes…and No. While some techniques can be used to defend yourself, Muay Thai cannot be deemed as “Self-Defense”. Muay Thai is a combat sport in which two individuals agree to engage in a fight. In self-defense, at least one person does not want to engage. The goal (for the person not wanting to engage) is to escape the situation unharmed.

Me: Oh, that makes sense.

That’s it for today. Thank you for taking the time to read this. If you know anyone that is interested in martial arts or fitness, please direct them to my blog, where all my articles can be found.
