Dieting is not enough!

I’m giving away free health advice because I hope someone out there will listen to me and apply the knowledge.  I’m sure there is someone sympathetic out there.

In losing weight and turning your life around, just dieting is not enough.  Diet is 80% of it, and exercise is 20% of it, but if you only diet and don’t exercise, you will hit a plateau.

First, eat less sugar, starch, and salt.  But after a while you will feel more energetic, so go out and walk a little bit.  But remember, strength training is more important to the way you look and feel than cardio, although both are essential to be fit.

I think good old fashioned weightlifting is still the best way to improve your strength and vitality.  And with cardio, just move around more like walking or jogging around the neighborhood.

I think the whole diet and exercise journey is very unique to each individual, but for sure the best foods to choose from are protein and vegetables and low sugar fruit, and the worst foods are dairy and grains.  But there are exceptions…

But the theme of this post is that you need to exercise as well as eat right if you want to recover, and there’s no way around strength training and cardio.  You can’t reinvent the wheel.
