Eat and Drop
So many times, you have heard that nutrition is the one key that is so important to drop weight.
And there is nothing but truth to that statement. The problem I have is that the numbers are a bit skewed, the general consensus out there is that 60% is eating right and 40% is exercise. I believe it is more like 95% is nutrition, 4.5% is rest, and 0.5% is exercise. Now that doesn’t mean if you remove exercise that you will drop weight (we’ll talk about that next week), it just means you need all three to lose weight effectively.
This week we are going to look at three major points on why you lose weight when you start to eat right. Now that is a very open statement as eating right for everybody really is very different as there are so many different types people that have backgrounds in sometimes extremely different areas in the world. So, the best way to go and eat right is to see what great, great, great grandad used to eat and follow suit. For further reading on this please Google Dr. Weston A. Price who is the founder of this type of eating, then go and look up Mark Sisson, one of my favorite authors on the subject.
One major point to eating according to your background is that your genetic make-up hasn’t changed that much over the past couple of generations. So, if great, great, great grandad was happy and healthy then when you start eating like he did; your genetic structure pool will adapt and get you some amazing results.
Another is eating correctly (according to your genetic makeup) can trigger your body to make adaptions the way it supposed to make them. What does that mean? Well, quite frankly, brain fog starts to go away, you feel stronger at the gym, your reaction time gets better, and you start to look better. Why?
Well you have been preprogrammed by your parents to eat in a certain way once we go away from this type of programming for a long period of time well we start to shut down. It’s like trying to run a Microsoft application on an Apple machine. It can work but there will be problems down the road. Once we start to eat “properly” then all sorts of amazing things start to happen to us because our bodies don’t have to try to figure out what to do with new type of food.
Now, I know what you may be thinking: “No more Chinese food!?” “I love Chinese food.” I am not saying that at all. It is fine to eat all different types of food from all over the world occasionally. Just make sure most of your diet is based off your heritage as your body (the finely tuned machine that it is) can assimilate the nutrition’s properly and easily.
