When it comes to general fitness and nutrition a lot of people are confused.
And I understand why.
There’s a great deal of information out there that is very easy to stumble upon and unfortunately much of that information is false or can be misleading.
There are so many diets and exercise programs that it can be difficult to distinguish what works and what doesn’t.
Because of this it is easy to be confused. We don’t really know where to start, and therefore we remain stuck.
We have the desire to get in better shape, we want to lose weight, we want to become stronger, but we just simply don’t know where to begin.
So we get stuck looking up all kinds of things on the internet trying to distinguish what will work best for us, all of which ultimately leads to nowhere.
The idea I’m presenting in this article is not that of any special diet or following any specific workout plan but rather stick to the basics of exercise programming and dieting.
There’s no sense in over-complicating things.
Especially when we’re new, we need to make sure that we are sticking to the very basics.
We need to be eating foods that are good for us, foods that supplies with the necessary macronutrients we need in order to fuel not only our workouts, but also our days.
We need to keep from getting stuck in these diet plants that promise results in absurd amounts of time.
Yes we may see results, but not only do they wreak havoc on our health, we often gain the weight right back plus more when we go off those diets.
We need to find a training program that’s suited for our lifestyle.
There is no magic program, there’s no perfect program.
What’s most important is the effort that you put into it. Any program can work if you put the effort into it.
The important thing about your exercise program itself is that it is something that you will actually do.
If you enjoy lifting weights, then lift weights.
If you enjoy running or biking, then run or bike.
The thing to remember with all of this is that we have to start somewhere. We have to start with the basics.
Making sure to keep our training and our diet simple keeps us interested. It gets us the results were looking for, and keeps us from giving up on it.
Stick to the basics, they will get you where you want to go.
