Bringing Sweaty Back, I don't cook

Brain WASH

I hate to be harsh but… I’m sick and tired of hearing the same old excuses. ¬†I hear “them” “people” “they” ¬†utter the same mindless, ignorant phrases day in and day out.

  • I don’t want to lift weights because I will bulk up
  • I need to lose weight before I begin a workout program
  • I just need to wire my mouth shut and starve for a while
  • I’m just not hungry in the morning
  • I don’t have time for lunch

People, can I please give your brain a bath? ¬†This is such bad information and frankly not true. This nonsense is years of brain washing by gimmick advertisers or idiot health professionals who ONLY want your money. ¬† I’m willing to bet that none of the info above is working for you? ¬†Am I RIGHT?

The antithesis, the answer, the actual truth, the for real I’m not kidding around because I don’t joke about FITness, is…

Wait. ¬†First do me a favor and¬†please power wash your mind! ¬†Let me neutralize your brain with disinfectant to be sure old habits don’t creep back into your now spotless mind.

Emboss, engrave, stain and program these words into your mind:

  • Load up on the M&M’s !! ¬†Muscle and Metabolism
  • Lifting weights burns FAT. ¬†It BURNS/ disintegrates fat!
  • To lose body FAT, you must exercise and lift weights to burn FAT!
  • NOT eating leads to over eating! ¬†I repeat, NOT eating leads to overeating!
  • A hungry body is a HEALTHY body

When your tummy growls it is a HEALTHY sign you’re hungry. ¬†So eat already! ¬†BUT…be choosy about what goes in that precious body of yours! ¬†Beautiful specimen, when you starve because you think or¬†know you can lose 5 pounds in a week, you’re actually losing water weight or possibly muscle. ¬†Once you resume eating, like a normal human SHOULD, ¬†you gain back water weight plus some. That sucks. ¬†It’s called yo-yo dieting. ¬†STOP the madness.

Our bodies are like a well built automobile. ¬†Most of us manage regular maintenance on our shiny four wheel vehicles. ¬† We fill up with gas so the car will RUN. ¬†We occasionally check the oil and other fluid levels. ¬†If we are on our A game, we have the breaks checked and tires rotated because we depend on this machine to get us from point A to point B. ¬†So listen up…if you went on strike and quit filling up your car with gas what would happen? ¬†I’ll tell you what would happen, it would eventually stop running and leave you stranded on the side of the road. ¬†So WHY, do you do it to your body? ¬†Any light bulbs turning ont?

Your brain gets a signal that your hungry which is much like the low gas light in your car. ¬†Time for a fill up ding dong! ¬†When you keep your body fueled it continues to operate your “METABOLISM”. ¬† Food is the gasoline that will keep your engine/metabolism revved up and RA-NNING! (totally using my Forrest Gump voice (also read Channeling my inner Forrest Gump)¬† ¬† If you fill up on junky fast food and crappy processed garbage, your body will not function at mock speed. ¬†Make sense?

Ok, so the myth that lifting weights will bulk you up is a total lie. ¬†Lifting weights burns FAT and creates lean muscle. To bulk up like a muscle head, much effort is required. ¬†Way more effort than standard weight lifting. ¬†Building big muscle involves a diet high in carbs, protein, weight gain protein powders, lifting UBER heavy weights, and possibly steroids. ¬†You could train every day with weights and workout out like a mad man and I solemnly swear you will NOT bulk unless you train to build! ¬†And have you ever seen a FAT…muscle head? NOPE didn’t think so. ¬†They are solid muscle…not FAT.

A HIIT, high intensity internal training program will not bulk you up!  The quickest way to take weight off is to lift weights and start your engine/metabolism with a healthy meal plan. A diet consisting of high protein and non processed low carbohydrates is the key. An efficient body should run full throttle for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours.  When committed to losing weight the first order of thumb is to start eating! (healthy foods)  Next, you commit to a workout program that involves weight training. Lastly, you move your butt.  Start walking, jogging, swimming, biking, skipping, jumping, aerobisizing, dancing, and moving the body.
