Not a lot is said about psychology as it pertains to weight loss. It is important to understand that when you are overweight and out of shape, it is because you did the things that made you overweight and out of shape. You are the one who caused it, and you are the only one who can change it.

In addition to a good food plan, you need a good training plan. You need at least 30 minutes per day of intense exercise. An ideal program should rotate between cardio, weight/bands training, core exercises, legs, and recovery routines like Pilates or Yoga.

The right way (selon-moi) to lose weight (or should we say, burn fat), is to control the amount of food you eat, in addition to the types of foods you eat. Yes, of course, it is important to cut out processed foods (stop eating crap out of a box and start making your own meals from fresh ingredients).

I had to do it in order to reach my fitness goals, and it’s the rare person that has a beach-body without having to lift a finger.
Uh huh. Damn I look good!
I dislike the words “diet” and “exercise.” They imply thankless, gruelling work and food that isn’t very fun. They imply hardship, and unpleasantness. They imply that you will hate every minute of doing them. And I can tell you from personal experience, if you hate it, you are not likely to keep doing it. Particularly when there isn’t a paycheck in it.
I much prefer the terms, “food plan” and “training.”
But what will work? What is the best approach? Calorie counting, portion control, low carb, Paleo? In the next article, I’ll explore methods that worked for me.
