We’ve got to stop with this.
This meme (picture above) has been floating around the online space a lot lately…
It’s crazy. But this is funny because it’s true.
We live in a world where more people in first world countries are overweight than not and we are suddenly arguing over whether avocados and coconut oil are healthy.
Really, come on folks!
But whether or not things are healthy isn’t really the issue.
It’s simply another form of giving ourselves a reason not to stick with the right choices.
As you’ve heard me say before, there’s simply no reason that your relatively healthy, non-seriously injured person can’t have a lean, healthy, and strong body.
Here’s a formula that isn’t really that hard to follow:
1. Drink more water, at least half your body weight in ounces everyday.
2. Get at least 7 hrs. of sleep every night.
3. Fill your tiny plate with mostly vegetables and the rest protein and healthy fat.
4. Exercise at least 3x/week.
5. Lift weights on two of those days for at least 30 minutes working your entire body.
6. Do cardio on all three days for at least 15 minutes and it can be something as simple as a walk outside.
Because it truly is a choice. We’ve got to stop with this.
So, the next time you find yourself or someone else questioning how healthy a healthy food really is, stop and remember that we need to stop looking for reasons why we can’t or shouldn’t and commit to doing what we know is right.
