I was talking with a boot camper the other night and we were discussing that losing weight is pretty simple...but not easy.
What do I mean by this?
I first got interested in lifting weights and "body-building" when I was about 13 years old. That's 37 years ago, ouch! In any case, I can remember the "secret" back then to a lean body was, lot's of protein, lot's of vegetables, and fruit. Think back to Jack La Lanne days, that's what he was preaching in the 60's. And you know what still works today? Yep, you got it...protein, vegetables, and fruit. These days there is more emphasis on the benefits of healthy fats, but otherwise, the suggestions are basically the same.
Please stop wasting your time, searching for supposed quick fixes, and shortcuts. They're aren't any!
Focus on learning how to cook, whole and nutritious foods.
Make it a habit.
