Diet plan or Gym?… Health, it’s what you eat

It’s 2013, and we all have to make that big decision, do we want to be healthier than we were in 2012, or not?

New Year has come and passed, and most of us have made a resolution to get healthy, so we sign up at the local gym, go to GNC and get the latest and greatest fat loss miracle, and get started. It is not news that exercise is a vital part of becoming a healthier person, but we often look over the fact that it only accounts for about 20% of weight loss and health. The vast majority of our health is based on what is at the end of our fork. This is why most resolutions fail. This is why we never see the results we desire from the hard work at the gym. Each time you go to the gym you burn about 200-300 calories.

This is a good start, but if you eat one cheeseburger, drink one fountain drink, or eat one Snickers bar, you are going to negate every bit of that workout. I am guilty of this just as much as anyone is, if I go to the gym and get a good set in, I feel like I am allowed to reward myself with something. That reward is always a food that will negate the great benefits I just got at the gym, and it is back to square one the next day.

A wash on the day for health is better than the average American, because statistically the majority of Americans gain weight every single day, so if you are able to maintain a weight and not gain you are actually showing benefits. But this is not was we want, is it? We want to lose a ton of weight in a hurry. We want a six pack by spring.

The hardest part of my position is to try to put rational goals in place for each patient. Weight loss greater than 3 lbs per week is too much and will shock the body and cause health damage. So, it is important to be patient and set a goal of about 10 lbs per month. Eating a reduced calorie diet is effective, but it is important to take some focus away from just calorie in calorie out and remember that without adequate levels of vital nutrients, the body will not allow you to lose weight.

Here are some quick tips on how to maximize your weight loss results:
  1. Do not drink your calories
  2. Avoid all grains
  3. Make vegetables your primary food
  4. Eat only foods with ONE ingredient
  5. Avoid processed food

If you live the common American lifestyle, and eat the Standard American Diet (SAD), chances are, your health will worsen this year, just as it did last year and the year before that. We are living in a way that has led to a decline in our health and an incline in our waist line. The New-Start Solution is a plan that will work very effectively to restore your health and help you reach your New Year’s goal.
