Electric muscle stimulation, complicated starve-diets, training machines, personal trainers, pills, light foods… All of these are the epitome of CRAP! In a society that suffers from fatness and unhealthiness, clever marketers don’t waste their time and gain money from all of our health problems.

Once again, let me say: It’s so simple!

There are only two things that a great body needs:

  1. Training – Go to the gym or just get out there with your running shoes (and run 🙂 ). Simple? Hell yeah.
  2. Nutrition – Healthy diet and normal calorie intake. Simple? Definitely.

WE make it difficult.

You see, it should be common sense that every person works out everyday and it should be common sense that people don’t eat at McDonald’s more than once per week. But our everyday life has become so much depended on machines and not depended on our own body’s abilities that we are becoming an anomaly. Anyway, we can correct this.

About working out.

Everyone should work out at least 3 times per week. That’s a rule: If you don’t follow it, you won’t be healthy.

  • Any workout should contain a cardio-training and a resistance-training part.
  • Walking is not an option: Running is the only thing that would work.
  • The resistance training is very important for a healthy body: Go to they gym and ask for a program. Don’t have the fear of getting bulky: No one got bulkier without trying TOO hard. You can’t get bulky by accident, believe me.
  • If you are not sweating and feeling somewhat tired you are doing nothing special.

About nurtition/diet.

These are cliche-stuff. Everyone knows them. Let me repeat them once more.

You should eat breakfast everyday. Then fill your day with three-four more meals once every 3-4 hours.

  • Don’t eat fast food.
  • Don’t eat heavily processed foods.
  • Don’t eat much fat (not much does not mean none – fat is important in low quantities).
  • Do cook your own food using fresh ingredients.
  • Do consume many vegetables and fruits.
  • Do have a variety in foods.

It’s so common sense that it makes me feel stupid to write these. Since I’m acting so stupid let me say the most important one: Do not eat too much! Even if you follow the healthiest diet you won’t ever be lean if you consume more energy than you spend.

Simple math:

  • Eat more than you burn = Get fat.
  • Eat what you burn = Stay as you are.
  • Eat less than you burn = Lose weight.

The great body is a combination of working out and dieting.

Following a diet alone is not going to make you great. Losing weight means that you both lost fat and muscle. That muscle can only be kept on your body (you want that) only if you do some resistance training. Simple things once again.

Why do all these?

I’ll get deeper into the subject on an upcoming post but in a few words: All that you are, that is your body. You are your body. Body=You=Existence=World. All your thoughts and senses are created by this body. A machines that is in a crappy condition works like crap. You get the point.

How to do all these?

Before I got for the first time to the gym I thought it would be much to tiring for me. I had no passion.

I just had to push myself and go for the first time. Then, it immediately became the thing that I long for everyday. It became a wonderful routine. Maintaining a nice diet is also a similar thing: You just have to be determined.

In the end, if you are unhealthy and bored to do something about it, don’t do anything. Sit there in your couch, watch some tv, eat some chips, go take a dump, sweat, sleep, die… and let the rest of us enjoy the fruits of life. Or join us. Just make a choice. Simple things.
