Just a quick one this morning folks. I've been working like mad on something that is going to be huge. And when I say huge, I MEAN huge.
I will be telling you more about that very soon ;-)
Today, I wanted to share with you a little piece of advice, that although simple, can make an incredible change to your body almost overnight.
And this has to do with diet.
Although the Atkins diet has come and gone for the most part (thank heavens!) it did leave us with one tid-bit of information that is truly valuable.
And that is, GET RID OF STARCH!
What I mean by starch is potato, pasta, flour products of any kind, rice, etc. On top of this, refined carbs like sugar and high-fructose corn syrup and even fruit juice are all ticking time bombs; waiting to make you explode into jean sizes you'll be embarrased to admit you wear.
Now, most people assume that many of these foods are healthy choices. I mean, you would think that a baked potato is great compared to a plate of french fries.
Let me put it like this: Starches are a form of highly condensed energy. Energy that you just simply ARE NOT BURNING. If you have job that required to you be physical all day long (like a farmer, carpenter, laborer etc.) then you can get away with it, but then again, if you have one of these professoins, chances are your weight isn't too much of a problem.
The reality is, our lives are VERY sedentary. Even if you're 'busy' (who isn't) you probably aren't all that physicaly active. And while you do need some carbs to fuel your brain and keep you going throughout the day; the carbs you are getting from fruits and veggies are plenty to accomplish this task.
Quite simply, if you are eating carbs, and you have an inactive lifestyle, those carbs are not being used as energy, and WILL end up as body fat, period.
You need to make a shift from having meat, potatoes, and veggies for dinner, to having a salad, meat, and some cooked veggies.
Resist it as much as you want, but my clients who have the best success are all following this type of plan. This is what my wife and I have been doing for years now, and I can tell you the results were visible nearly overnight.
If you MUST have carbs, eat them only in the morning, and in sensible amounts. After that, focus on fresh fruits and veggies, and protein for the rest of your meals, and you will be amazed at the changes in your body.
Put this in to practise now folks. Don't wait any longer. The sooner you do this, the sooner you will get great results.
