3 simple ways to lose weight...

Have you got the feeling that I am going to pull a lot of fish on my line with this blog title.
I do.
How many jump back out of the boat when they figure out it's not a magic pill or a cookie diet or a meal and deal plan? 
Who knows.

It really is simple.
Let's do this in rhyme....
1.) Cap your calories.
The Less that  goes in, the more the weight comes off.
I don't care what you call it....low carb..low fat...vegan...
It's all about calories.
Now granted some can have more and some can have less.
It's not fair...but that is the way it is...
Eating real food makes it easier...but you could concievably lose that weight eating nothing but twinkies and diet coke.
YOu'll feel like crap....but it will work as long as you have a deficit.
Pick a cap you can live with and eat foods you like.. and keep it under a certain number.
That's all.

2.) Exercise
MOVE YOUR REAR.  The more you move, the more you burn.
It's that simple.
You can starve the fat off...but it isn't very pleasant or proactive.
Moving makes it go much faster..
and you will also feel better.

3.) Don't quit.
That's it..not ever.
Not for anything or anyone...not when you are tired of it...not when you are slogging around in month three and couldn't give a rat's ass.

that is how you lose weight.
Now the hard part is doing it.
hard core.
Chris out.

True. I did it in 2011. Including #3...which tends to be the one I struggle with.

All the best to you in 2012!

You scared me a little when you said you were going hard core on my blog. I feel a bit better now.

It's the simplest thing.

Yet, it's the hardest.

I would add a 4th, if you want it to be permanent...

Sooner or later (pick yer when) work on the INside reasons we got fat in the first place. You may not ever know all the reasons... but if we don't address the mental, as soon as "the wt loss phase" is over, people revert to type, to learned behavior that pops out under stress.

Just sayin...

Otherwise, dang good post, great way to just get going! ;-)

You have summarized the three elements of proper weight loss. Eat less, train more and continue this month after month.

You have done a very good progress. Congratulations.

It's a simple formula, too bad that so many feel the need to make it more complicated than it is.
