Monday July 28, 2014:
Let’s take this week and the month of August to clean up our diets. It’s hot…to hot to eat heavy meals and to hot to cook. Fruits and veggies are in abundance this time of year. Steam and grill them…. Drink plenty of water. August is a long hot month…let’s use this time to shed a few, trim the waistline and get ready for those football games, tailgating, then the heavier eating holidays.
A great solution, that doesn’t require drastic change, is to take 3 bits of advice from the caveman—advice that will promote weight loss, decrease your risk of disease and will get you looking and feeling great.
1. Make Plants and Animals the Focus of Your Diet: This will quickly lead to weight loss and increased energy. Don’t be so hard on yourself that everything you put in your mouth has to be caveman approved – but make it the majority of your diet.
2. Cut Out Processed Food: The simplest way to promote weight loss and to encourage good health is to eliminate processed foods from your diet. When you replace processed foods with fresh produce your results will be immediate. Not only will you feel healthier, you will have more energy than you’ll know what to do with!
3. Exercise: Since you will need an outlet for all that extra energy, acquire a new hobby—one that gets you moving. Have you ever met a lazy caveman? Of course not. (And this is not just because you were born a few centuries too late!) Cavemen were forced to be active in order to survive. Hunt dinner. Build a fire. Move a fallen tree. Create shelter. You get the idea If you want a lean, muscular body then exercise must become a part of your daily life. Foundation Training daily will stretch and strengthen your muscles and decompression breathing will energize your whole being!
Move those bodies… Fill up on fresh fruit and veggies. Add a green drink to you snack list. Information is available everywhere if you really want to change.
Have a great Monday!
