As I reread my post from a couple days ago I realized I forgot to include one of my most important points. Probably second only to “knowledge is power”, the point I missed is to “keep it simple”.
So in the interest in keeping this post short and sweet, I think Scott Smith says it pretty well “Complexity creates paralysis, and paralysis is not moving.”. If you make your workout and eating routines hyper complicated it will be extremely hard to stick with. Weight loss is really pretty simple. Calories in needs to be less than calories out. People like to throw all sorts of complexities around it. Gimmicks, 20 minute a day routines etc etc. When you clear all that junk away, it simply comes down to calories. So don’t make it harder than it needs to be.
