You are responsible for your fitness.
You already know that you need to eat right and do some sort of exercise in order to become fit for life.
I personally eat everything imaginable and maintain a good physique and once weighed 320 lbs before getting sick and tired of being fat and getting busy. You can eat whatever you want just not whenever you want.
You need to remember everything in moderation is a good thing. You need to know that if you rarely exercise you can’t just eat whatever you want. The older you get the worse it gets in terms of your metabolism if you don’t work at it.
If you begin to regulate how much good food and how much junk food you eat you can lose weight. You really want to eat good balanced meals and become a fat burning machine. You should have a good idea of where you are overeating in your day to day intake.
It can be a bit of a task to not over indulge in food that you love. You need to take back control in your life. Food can and will kill you if you let it. You need to stop letting the food take control in your life. Stop being a slave to food! Food is meant to sustain you and give you energy not make you want to take a nap.
When you eat food you should feel good not uncomfortable. If you feel uncomfortable and sluggish when you eat then you know you are definitely overeating and probably eating the wrong types of food. You need to eat food that can metabolize quickly to give you energy.
You can eat all day long if you eat the right types of food. You really need to learn how your body processes food and what food is good for energy and what food is not. Fruit and vegetables is awesome for energy, it metabolizes quickly to give you energy to want to move around not want to lay down.
There are so many diet plans out here that it makes our heads spin. The plans that work best include everyday food and exercise. There is no need to measure your food portions unless you think a serving of beef is a pound or more. I eat at least 6 to 8 ounces of beef or pork at any one meal. I used to fill up on just the meat and not eat much of any other food at a meal. You fill up on meat, or any one thing for that matter. Remember I said moderation.
The bottom line is you need to exercise to be able to eat more food. Your body can only burn so much on its own and will store the rest as fat. Exercise needs to get your heart rate up and keep it there for a set period. That period depends on your food intake and what kinds of food you eat. Food can be your friend or your enemy, of course you know this already though.
You cannot just eat whatever you want and in quantities that surpass your bodies need for nutrition and sustainability and expect not to gain weight. If you are looking for a magic pill then you are just who the marketers are looking for when they sell their fairy dust. If you want to lose weight and be fit for life you need to figure out your metabolism.
How much food can your body process without storing fat in any given day?
Until you figure this out you will never lose weight or maintain it. You need to take into account your height, weight and activity level in order to know how much food it takes to sustain and lose weight for you personally.
It is not rocket science, although the weight loss industry would like you to believe that in order to sell you more stuff. You must eat enough food also. If you skip meals and think that is good you are wrong. Your body regulates fat storage by how much food you take in and how often. There has to be a happy medium though. You can’t just eat and eat and expect fat not to be stored. If you are an athlete and burn 5000 calories in a day then you need massive intakes of food. If you sit at a desk all day and find it a task to walk the steps you are in trouble.
