When Trying to lose weight: important to keep in mind that it took a long time to gain the weight, so it will also take a long time to lose the weight
Some things to go over would that would be important in this new learning. Calorie counting is a very misleading factor that is brought up in the health industry. The bodybuilding industry can also be misleading with all of its dangerous vitamin supplements and hormonal trickery. Counting calories is marketed as being a strategy for keeping a particular weight. Its usually pretty time consuming because there are different weight measurements for each food item which means you will deal with a lot of numbers. You end up wasting your time doing a bunch of math with your food and not getting anywhere. Lions, snakes, bears and other wild animals do not count calories and none of them have gained any weight!
Saturated fat and cholesterol are another thing to know about. Many drug companies market themselves as cholesterol lowering. This is entirely unnecessary because cholesterol is a precursor to all of the major steroid hormones that the body naturally produces. The shape of a cholesterol structure in chemistry is also very similar to the shape of the testosterone structure. So it may be safe to say that when you lower your cholesterol you are actually shutting down your testosterone. You need testosterone to build muscle! Saturated fat is loaded with cholesterol and a lot of food and drug companies market products as having less saturated fat or being fat free. The truth about fat is that your brain eats it and without fat in the diet you may become fatter. Don't be fooled, the processes in the brain depend on these food sources. Fat also Insulates the body in cold weather.
The key to not getting fat from eating fat is to stay active and make sure that you are getting fat from organic sources and grass fed sources. Fat in commercial meat products may actually contain a large amount of toxins from how the animal lived and what it ate. These toxins and fat sources are the reason why you might become overweight, because the body cannot utilize the toxins and the disrupted structures of the food. You have to get wild caught and organic grass fed meats. Buying commercial meat products are also very bad for the environment as the animals are raised in very polluted conditions. Organic grass fed meats are raised the way nature intended because the farmer used more care in growing the livestock. This is the most important truth because you will literally get vitamins and minerals from the grasses or berries that an organic animal ate. These nutrients are what make us more energetic, more smart and able to function properly so that we can lose weight and stay in good shape.
Have you ever wondered why skinny or athletic people can sometimes eat whatever they want while you are still suffering? This is because you have to get yourself to the point where you can have enough energy to follow your dreams. It is suggested that adding and removing things from your lifestyle one at a time until you master what works best for you. This is your body so listen to it.
I would suggest to start detoxing as soon as possible. Getting plenty of purified water, rest and regular exercise. You are going to notice the best results this way. Sweating toxins out does help. Most of the time we become overweight because we accidently made the wrong food choices and ended up being overweight from toxic buildup and stress. It is so easy to start losing weight. Just start detoxing, drinking purified water and being diligent in changing your habits. It may take a while but when you've accomplished your dream weight or dream body it will be well worth it.
You have to give yourself permission to be healthy. Fasting is another way to lose weight but you have to be careful with it. I once asked my friend how he stays so skinny all the time and he replied with that sometimes he just doesn't eat. This is fasting and sometimes can be very helpful too but watch out because a hungry body will retain food if it knows that it will be 11 hours before the next meal. Our body sometimes will retain weight if it knows there won't be another meal for many hours. An example would be if you ate breakfast and skipped lunch and had a huge dinner you might actually bloat or get back pain. You want at a minimum to have 3 organically grown meals each day.
Another weight loss approach would be eating 4-6 small meals throughout the day. This will speed up your metabolism naturally because the body knows it will be fed again every 2-3 hours and will want to use the energy. It will start processing things a bit faster and you could lose weight because your metabolism will also be processing your fat cells along the way. This will lead to more energy and thus more motivation to exercise.
Lastly, it is very important to know that every single organ in the body has to be healthy for optimal health to occur. The muscular system won't function properly until all the organs are working correctly, as the body is holistic. This means that it all works together and needs each other. To avoid muscle imbalances and injuries it is important for us to know this truth. This also includes the lungs (if you're a smoker) and liver(if you're a drinker). Often when people smoke they become hungrier because of a lack of oxygen to the lungs. Drinking alcohol pulls water out of your body and dehydration occurs. Eating that extra food may lead to weight gain because its technically considered 'over-eating'. So managing these activities is going to be important for you. Not one organ in the body can be out of function in order for the muscular system to function properly and the weight loss to occur. So pinpoint all the foods and herbs that will heal your organs properly and you will end up with so much positive energy that this whole process will become simplified, fun and easy.
