While there are endless fitness secrets out there, my 20 years of experience has narrowed it down to a poignant three. As the industry continues to flood with “fitness gurus,” “fad diets” and “quick fix fitness books,” fitness secrets seem to be a dime a dozen. Until now. Welcome to the AHA of Fitness Secrets.
It is difficult to get “fit” done with busy lives and busy schedules, but let me tell you Girl, it is possible. If we jump from one method to the next, try the latest fad diet or read the latest book, we usually end up frustrated. When I say, “been there, done that,” I am not kidding. Some say, ‘break down, break through’ is the path to enlightenment, but when this happened to me, I found myself desperate to find a solution. If you don’t believe me, I have a over decade’s worth of photos to prove my struggle to get fit, stay fit, and be fit.
After years of this frustration and feeling helpless, hopeless and depressed, I turned my attention to the science of nutrition. If you have been with me for any length of time, you know my base line starts with the idea that we are chemistry projects. As a result, our bodies are built around hunt and gathering. What they aren’t built for, is simply gathering. The human body needs to move, which is where the phrase “eating for fuel” comes from.
This is not pseudo-science or opinion, ladies. These are scientific facts about the human body, which we can work to our benefit in many ways. From Keto to Vegan, marathons to power lifting, the body is willing to do the work. So, what’s the problem you ask? Is it the mind? Is it society? Could it be the media portrayal of what is fit or what is beauty?
