You always see the before and after picture with some program people are selling. In this article I will show you not only what I did, but what I am doing to get my results. This is how to lose weight and feel great.
How Hard Is It To Lose Weight
I used to ask that same question months ago.
After losing weight I would answer that it is easy.
But before I really tried to lose weight I would’ve said that it is hard.
People claim that losing weight is hard and requires extreme discipline.
You will also see people who have a terrible diet, yet take 5 different supplements.
Here is what I say:
- Losing weight is easy and fun
- Your diet is 100% more important than supplements
Why Did I Decide To Lose Weight
Of course I decided to lose weight so that I would feel great and look amazing.
But another reason was because of you.
Since my real name and picture is all over Calm and Collected and the internet, I have to look the part as much as I talk about it.
As a reader and viewer you get to see everything from the ground up.
You get to see me as I chisel my body.
By watching this transformation you will see that you can do it as well.
The Beginning Was Slow…
When I first started dieting and working out I didn’t really know what I was doing.
I’m not really the read a hundred article type, but I still found myself bouncing around.
I would go from meal plan to meal plan.
Workout to workout.
Of course I saw very slow results.
It wasn’t until I finally realized that my mistake, that I really went in.
I realized that while I was “always” dieting and working out, I lacked consistency.
In order to lose weight and feel great I would have to dedicate myself to what I was doing.
I’ve Always Had To Go All In
With everything in my life, I’ve always had to go all in.
While most people things just seemed to fall into their lap, I always had to take constant action.
From school to losing weight, I was always the axis on which everything happened.
It is the same way with you.
Everything in your life up to this point has happened because of you.
From the bad to the good.
It was and always will be you.
If you want to lose weight and feel great you must go all in.
My Philosophy For Losing Weight
Over time I have created my own Philosophy for losing weight and feeling great.
Here it is:
- Simple And Cost Effective
- Great Tasting Food
- Lifestyle Oriented
- Enhanced By Supplements
Those are the basics to my Philosophy when it comes to losing weight.
I don’t like anything to be complicated.
I hate complication of any kind.
I like balance and results.
But let me explain more about each point:
Simple And Cost Effective-
As I said I like things to be balanced and simple.
I don’t want to be eating 10 different kinds of food and spending $200 a week on food.
I want to spend $20-60 a week on my meals.
I also want my meals to be effective and simple.
If you are spending $200 a week on food then you are wasting your money.
I could understand if you are trying to reach bodybuilder status.
But if you are trying to lose weight then save your money.
You can easily spend $20-60 a week.
Great Tasting Food-
People think they have to eat crappy tasting food when dropping weight.
I call complete BS on that.
Life is meant to be amazing and full of flavor.
I am losing weight while eating great tasting food.
When I am making my meals I make it taste great.
(FUN FACT: Slap Some Spice On That Meat)
The place where you keep messing yourself up is you don’t make it lifestyle oriented.
When you are losing weight it is more of a lifestyle than just dropping weight.
If you don’t build your diet to fit your lifestyle then you will never get lasting results.
You can’t eat the way you have been and expect to stay looking great.
Even if you look great, you will end up fat again.
Build a diet that goes with your lifestyle so that you will get lasting results.
Enhanced By Supplements-
Supplements really do work, but you need to have a diet and workout routine in place to get real results.
I see so many people taking tons of supplements without having a good diet in place.
All supplements do is enhance your diet and workout.
Bad Diet + Great Supplement = Nothing
Good Diet + Great Supplement = Great Results
What Type Of Foods Can I Eat
You can eat whatever you like most
For me I really like fish, chicken, and steak.
I find myself eating more fish though.
To lose weight and feel great you will make this a lifestyle.
When eating you need to be in a calorie deficit.
The key is to get enough calories to maintain your body but stay in a burning phase.
Here is a basic list of foods that you can eat when losing weight:
- Fresh Vegetables (Frozen Broccoli Is My Favorite)
- Clean Meat (Flounder, Salmon, Chicken)
- Eggs (Boiled, Over Easy, Egg Whites)
- Oats (No Sugar Added)
You can mix and match from that list.
When losing weight you are trying to put great food into your body.
Remember to choose the foods that you like so that they fit your lifestyle.
What About Working Out
I follow the same Philosophy when it comes to working out.
I want it to be simple and effective.
I don’t enjoy spending an hour or two at the gym.
You may like doing that, but it isn’t for me.
When I go to the gym I go in and conquer then leave.
My current workout routine is 3-4 times a week.
When losing weight you should focus on intense workouts.
You need to be sweating.
I like full body workouts as it gets me sweating and feeling great.
If you want to do specific muscle groups that is fine.
Just focus on intensity and sweating.
What Supplements Should I Take
Now that you know the type of foods you should eat and have a good workout plan, let’s talk about supplements.
Supplements just enhance what you are doing.
I only use a few supplements.
Right now I am using the following:
I’m the type of person who researches each ingredient on a product before using it.
I am careful about what I put into my body.
A lot of fat burners out there have useless and sometimes dangerous ingredients.
Red Burner has everything that you should have in a fat burner.
I use Ashwaganda to help keep my Cortisol levels down.
Having high levels of Cortisol can make it harder to lose weight.
RED-PCT Gives You an Edge
I’ve used pro-hormones in the past and let me be up front. RED-PCT comes as close to one as you will get.
What I liked about RED-PCT is that it uses your free test. Not only that but I just all around feel great when I take it.
Anything Else To Lose Weight
You and I have covered all of the basics.
You have your diet.
You have a workout plan.
You have supplements to enhance your results.
Are there any other things that you can do to lose weight and feel great?
The answer to that is YES!
Here are a few things you can do also:
- Sleep Well
- Intermediate Fasting
- Intense Sex
You would be surprised how good sleep is for your body.
I can’t say that I get 8 hours a day, but I sleep well.
Anything more than that and I feel off the next day.
By following a set routine my body and mind has learned when to start getting tired.
I make sure that everything is done for the day before doing this.
If I don’t then I will not sleep well.
Drinking water is a great way to make sure you stay hydrated while you sleep and wake up feeling great.
Another big thing is sleeping in complete darkness.
I read an article months ago about how your mind picks up on any kind of light while you sleep.
If your mind picks up on any light then it can affect how well you sleep.
Turn off the TV.
Set your alarm on your phone.
Close those eyes.
Intermediate Fasting was one of those things I had always heard of but never understood.
It sounded complicated and impractical.
Then one day I saw a notification on Twitter.
From there I stumbled on to an article on Intermediate Fasting.
In that article and from his Free book on IF, I finally understood it.
Intermediate Fasting is great and does wonders.
It has helped me lose weight and think clearly.
I stop eating around 6-8 PM and do not eat again until 11 AM to 1 PM.
Most of my fasting is done while I sleep.
Sex is a great way to get in cardio.
Not only does it feel great, but you can lose weight while doing it.
Sex releases hormones and makes you feel amazing.
You can even relieve stress by having regular sex.
Of course you can’t just have a 5 minute round of slow pumping.
Instead, you need to have intense rough sex.
Sex that leaves you drenched in sweat and chairs turned over.
As you can see it is easy to lose weight and feel great.
Good Diet + Working Out + Supplements = GREAT RESULTS
Stop letting your excuses keep you from what you want.
Losing weight is simple.
You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on programs and useless supplements.
Just combine a good diet, workout plan, and good supplements together.
That is all you need.
Leave the rest of the crap for average mortals.
If you are wanting supplements then here are the ones that work:
Until Next Time Go And Dominate.
