Conversations from the BBQ

Last weekend was the 4th of July weekend, which means only one thing… lots and lots of bad decisions!

Just like many of you, I spent the weekend attending family and friend’s parties, celebrating the freedom we have in this country, and honoring all of the men and women who so selflessly serve to protect all of us.

As a fitness professional, everyone always wants to talk to me about how they can improve their diets or workouts… in which the conversation usually happens while they have a beer in one hand and a hot dog in the other.

I personally feel that having balance is such an important factor in achieving the results that you want, but unfortunately, most of us eat like we are Joey Chestnut in the Nathan’s Hot Dog eating contest (71 hot dogs in 10 minutes… really??).

We all know that in order to achieve weight loss, we can’t be slamming down 71 hot dogs in 10 minutes… or ever.

However, after being asked more times than I can count this past weekend on how to lose weight, I have a simple solution for you to follow:

Eat less, move more.

It is a simple as that…

I am not saying that putting it into practice is that simple. Life gets in the way often, which makes it difficult to make this mantra a part of your daily life.

But, if you want to achieve weight loss results, you need to consistently consume fewer calories than you burn every day.

The simple formula of energy in VS energy out is the key to long term weight loss.

I personally don’t care if you achieve that through Keto, Paleo, High Carb, Low Carb, Insects Only, or whatever your diet of choice is.

Everyone has a different lifestyle, a different threshold, different anatomy, different moral values, which should all play a factor in how you are choosing to lose weight.

However, the one factor that is the same amongst us all is the science that you will lose weight if you consume less then you burn on a consistent basis.

I know I am making it sound more simple than it is to apply, but I am a firm believer in keeping things simple.

Too often, we tend to make things more complicated than we need to, which hinders our results.

Let me help you simplify your results, and get you on the path to reaching the goals that you set for yourself.
