Life doesn’t promise easy, fair, happiness, or even health. In fact, life is hard, work is required, and never an option. It’s up to you to create the lifestyle you want. It’s also up to you to create the body you want. Agreed?
This won’t be found in a jar, pill, powder, or shake. If popping a ‘fit pill’ provided the body of your dreams, I certainly wouldn’t be writing a health blog. Quick fixes are not the way to getting fit the right way.
The Best Way to Fitness
Sound evidence has supported the best way to achieve a fit body is through a healthy lifestyle. You may be familiar with some of the requirements to make this happen but a short list is below:
- consistent healthy food intake
- regular exercise
- plenty of rest
- drinking lots of water
- balancing life
It’s a great and realistic plan. The problem is many of you aren’t willing to do the work. If nothing tastes better than healthy feels, why do we keep doing it wrong?
Avoid Quick Fixes
Great marketing has convinced many of you there’s a quick fix to fitness. This strong belief in false guarantees has taken away the drive and motivation to get fit the right way. False claims only provide false hope, take your money, and cause frustration.
The only way to achieve health and fitness is eating right and sweat producing work. Trendy diets and pills don’t teach you how to shop for healthy foods, cook the stuff, and meal plan. They surely don’t sprout legs and exercise so that you absorb the activity benefits.
What usually occurs with quick-fix programs is some initial weight loss because of being so calorically restrictive and unrealistic. Your body is running on an empty tank and experiencing typical negative side effects like dizziness, headache, and nutrient deficiencies. Your energy can become low and frustration high struggling through a program that just doesn’t feel good.
Studies show restrictive fad diets are unable to be sustained and any weight lost is put back on plus more. When the focus shifts to eating healthy and not dieting, realistic results can be achieved. This is where the work comes in.
Work For What You Want
Fitness takes work. You get up and go to a job each day to supply your needs and wants, right? The same applies to improve your health. Getting fit requires time, energy, and eating healthy food. The work is challenging but the results rewarding. It changes you, makes you stronger, and able to enjoy your body and life overall.
You are no stranger to what work feels like. It can be rewarding and provide an overwhelming feeling of accomplishment. The results of hard work are being able to achieve and have what you want and desire in life. Work is never optional and something you have to do to succeed.
The bottom line is having a fit body requires work but you must be willing to put in the time and actions to achieve your goals.
