Why People Don't Get Results
Oh yeah. You read that right. I actually used the word meth in the title of a blog post. Don’t worry . . . it will all make sense in a moment.
I’ll get to the whole meth situation in a second, but let me jump to another important topic first: Why most people don’t achieve fat loss and body composition results.
Do you know what it is? Well, I’ll tell you – nutrition. Yes, I know you’ve probably heard it before, but the truth remains. The reason most people don’t achieve the fat loss and body composition changes they desire is because of nutrition.
My view on nutrition has changed over the past few years, and it will probably change to some extent in the future. However, there are a few principles that I think will always remain.
1) Eat mostly whole, natural, unprocessed foods. Simple, but it works. I’ve talked about this at length in the past, but the simplest most important change you can make is eating natural foods. Eat foods that are as close to their natural state as possible. Not only will this help your waist line, it will also help your energy levels and overall health as well.
2) Eat when you’re hungry. I don’t recommend you eat “5-6 small meals throughout the day”. I think that’s a pain in the ass for most people, and it is not necessary for fat loss. I don’t care what you hear; neither myself or my clients eat 5-6 small meals each day and we have no problem losing fat, building muscle, and just overall looking awesome. Just eat when you’re hungry and apply the first principle.
Those are my two main principles. Apply those and you will get results.
If you want more information on nutrition, I have two main resources I recommend: Simple Nutrition and Eat Stop Eat. If you want to keep things as simple as possible and improve your body composition, then check out one of those resources.
Now onto the meth topic . . .
So, my morning got off to a very interesting start. I was upstairs getting dressed and all of a sudden I hear my dog going insane – barking, growling, trying to tear through the front door. I looked around the corner and I saw a guy standing there messing around with his cell phone. He never knocked on the door; he just stood there.
A few moments later he got in his truck, turned around in my driveway and then parked in my neighbor’s driveway. He got out of his car and walked around my neighbor’s house. Then I noticed he was looking around as if to see if anyone was watching him. He walked down towards the lake right beside our dock, then he walked under my neighbor’s dock and disappeared.
He was out of sight for about a half hour so I decided to call the police to have them check it out.
Fast forward a few minutes later and I’m outside speaking with a county police officer. He informed me that one of his partners picked the guy up walking down the road about two miles away. The officer told me that the guy’s “lights were on but nobody was home.”
Wow. That’s a comforting thought . . .
Apparently the guy has a friend with a warrant for evading the police and for being involved in cooking . . . yes, you guessed it – meth.
The guy they picked up is suspected of cooking meth as well. So, that guy’s car is still parked at my neighbor’s house, and I believe once the police officer acquires a search warrant they will probably find some stuff in the car.
What a great way to start the day! Ha Ha.
One last thing. I mentioned last week that it's possible to lose weight without exercising. I mean that entirely. So, I challenge you to do something fun and active this weekend. We are going hiking at another state park. What are you going to do?
Have a great weekend, everyone!
