This bad habit is the most interesting because most are not consciously aware of
It is not as if we do it purposely, but still it is probably a greater obstacle
to our health success than any of the others.
It is the reason for the other 4 of the worst 5 fitness habits of all time as
well as the reason behind that we undervalue certain aspects of our health and
It is the reason for all of this because if we don’t accept fitness as a
science, we are ignorant as to just how involved a process it is.
It takes structure, organization, timing, and manipulation of a large variety of
variables to be done the right way. Once this fact is understood, it can be so
much easier to allow ourselves the patience and work ethic necessary to succeed.
Don’t get me wrong. Your diet and eating habits are hugely important in terms
of successful fat loss, muscle tone, energy, cardiovascular health, et cetera,
but as a compliment to physical activity.
The reason being, is that even if you are perfect in the way you eat and
adopt the best habits, you are still doing very little to improve those fitness
aspects I just mentioned. Your nutritional habits are very important in
influencing and changing those health characteristics, but they aren’t the
initial factor that DICTATES those characteristics.
What does that is strength and cardiovascular exercise. Physically training
is what revs up your metabolism to where it needs to be for you to burn all that
fat. Cardiovascular activity and weight training are what maximize the function
of your system and provide you with the appropriate muscle tone needed to
sustain your metabolism and fat burning power.
Overestimating the effectiveness of your diet habits is the easy thing to do
because it requires very little physical effort to eat well. Just simply eating
well on its own may prevent weight gain and cause a minimal amount of early
weight loss, but what it also does is allow your metabolism to just adjust
itself to that particular habit without needing to improve.
METABOLISM and how it is controlled through exercise should be the source of
attack. How can you expect to improve the way the car works without improving
