I am going to give it to you straight! When it comes to weight loss and good health there is no secret formula, magic pill or a quick fix! Trust me if someone tells you that you going to lose 20 lbs. in a week. You are being bamboozled! You are not going to be successful!
Any scheme that is too good to be true is just that too good to be true!
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could buy your health and wellness in a nice package at the local drug store? Sorry, it just doesn’t work that way. It takes effort, but it doesn’t have to be as challenging as most people make it.
You are constantly bombarded with sensational claims of fast weight loss; use this pill or with just 20 min a day with this exercise program for 3 easy payments of $29.99.
These repetitive marketing messages have greatly distorted our sense of what it really takes to live a healthy lifestyle. We’ve loss site of the fundamentals of what it really takes to be successful!
Personally, I am tired of hearing it… it’s hard to sit back and listen to…now I want to do something about it!
I want to help you clear the clutter that has been holding you back from reaching your health goals!
I want to teach you how to harness the power of “The compounding effect of weight loss” or better yet how not to gain the weight it in the first place!
What I am about to propose isn’t rocket science, it’s not really that hard, but it does take discipline!
The general belief is that we naturally gain weight as we age. Barring that you suffer from a hypo thyroid issue or taking steroids for an autoimmune disease you have more control than you realize.
What if I told you that you could avoid gaining significant weight overtime?
Look at the difference in the HABITS of two friends and how it shaped their bodies after 31 months.
The compound Effect
Let’s take 2 friends who grew up in the same neighborhood together and are very similar. They both make around $75,000 a year. Both are married they have average health and body weight plus a little bit of marriage flab.
Friend number 1 we will call Scott, he wants to make big changes in his life but doesn’t want to make a big fuss over it. He recently read a magazine article and chose one idea from it to implement in his life.
He makes some small inconsequential positive changes. He’s going to cut out 125 calories from his diet every day, no big deal that’s maybe a cup of cereal, trading a can of soda for a bottle of seltzer water or switching from mayo to mustard on a sandwich… all these things are very doable. He also started walking about 2,000 extra steps a day, less than a mile. No grand effort …this is something anyone could do but Scott is determined to stick to these choices knowing that even though they are simple he could also easily be tempted to abandon them.
Friend number 2 we will call Brad, Brad starts making a few poor choices He recently bought a new big screen TV, so he could watch more of his favorite programs. He’s been trying out some of those recipes he’s seen on the food channel; the cheesy casserole, and the desserts that are his favorites.
He also installed a bar in his family room and added 1 alcoholic drink a week to his diet, nothing crazy. Brad just wants to have a little more fun. At the end of 5 months there are no perceivable differences between Scott and Brad.
At the end of 10 months and again in 15 months we can’t see any noticeable changes in either of their bodies. it’s not until they get to the end of the 18th month that the slightest differences are measurable in their appearance. At about month 25 we start seeing measurable visible differences at month 27 we see an expansive difference and by month 31 the change is startling.
Brad is now fat, while Scott is trim, by simply cutting out 125 calories a day in just 31 months Scott has lost 33 1/2 pounds.
In case you’re skeptical or curious here is the math:
31 months = 940 days,
940 days times 125 calories a day=117,500 calories saved,
117,500 calories times 1 pound divided by 3500 calories equals 33 ½ pounds lost.
The other side of the equation is this, If Brad ate only 125 calories more than Scott… as small as a bowl of cereal a day in the same time frame and gained 33 ½ pounds… he would weigh 67 pounds more than Scott.
Now that you can see how a small change can make a huge difference, what changes are you going to make to improve your health?
