You know what they say good things take time, when it comes to training or fitness this could not be any more true. So many people are obsessed with getting into shape as quickly as they possibly can that they spend ages researching all these different diets or take these crash diets that expect you to eat nothing but a yogurt and salad twice a day. I think this is ridiculous and it’s something I don’t understand for the majority of people.
Okay first off if your diet consists of foods you can’t see yourself eating in 6 months time then it’s just not going to work. Losing weight is easy, the difficulty comes with keeping that weight off, if you do one of these crash diets or diets that have you eating foods you don’t like not only are you more likely to break it because you don’t enjoy it but it’s not sustainable.
This is why when you are dieting, one of the best ways (in my opinion) to lose weight and keep it off is to count your calories and think about taking up a flexible diet. This will allow you to lose weight while still enjoying some of the foods you love.
Secondly instead of being one of those people who use steroids to get huge, fat loss pills to lose weight or follow unsustainable crash diets, take your time with it. Don’t use something that could be detrimental to your health to get results quickly, that’s just defeating the purpose, this is why I don’t understand people who take steroids because (health consequences aside) you are cheating, you’re not creating something you can be proud of, it’s like if you cheat on a test and get a good grade, it’s a hollow victory because people will applaud you but in reality you know you’ve just cheated your way into achieving it. You haven’t devoted hours of hard work and effort to achieve your goals.
Put the time in and create something that you are proud of, but for now I’m going to leave you with these two quotes:
“Good things take time”
“I’m not where I want to be, but thank goodness i’m not where I used to be”
Thank you ever so much for reading this one, I’m probably going to be doing more fitness related posts in the future because that’s what my passion is in. Leave a like if you enjoyed this and leave me a comment to tell me if you would like more posts like this. I hope to see you again on Tuesday. Ciao!
