Alright...I lied, it's not guaranteed. But don't leave yet!
The only reason it's not guaranteed is because you'll make it too complicated. You'll confuse yourself and then feel lost. Inevitably, you'll fall back into old habits. Don't get lost. The science is simple. People are soft, fat, and weak for TWO reasons:
1) A lack of physical exercise.
2) Tons of calorie dense, nutrient deficient foods.
Two things! That's all you need to focus on. But how do you put that into actionable takeaways?
Here are two questions you can ask that will guide you to take this off the screen and into real life:
Does this food have tons of vitamins and minerals? Also, can this be found in nature?
Look, I know it's f'ng delicious. There is nothing better than getting into that box of Kirkland White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Cookies at the end of a long day.
But hold your horses! Let's ask our question.
Part 1: Well, there's 3 macadamia pieces in that cookie so I guess you got all the minerals (selenium, magnesium, calcium, iron) you need and a dash of healthy fats. But seriously...you didn't get shit. You got a lot of sugar and fat.
Part 2: Scientists haven't found the elusive Kirkland White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Cookie tree in the wild (yet).
If you find yourself answering with a no more often than not, it's time to make different decisions. I'm not saying never eat a cookie. Just be aware what your body will look and feel like if you answer no 90% of the time. Strive to answer this question with a yes 80% - 90% of the time. You're gonna like the way you look. I guarantee it.
Did I move my body today?
Did you do anything besides sitting, laying down, standing, and transitioning between them?
If not, go! NOW! Stop reading!
Go outside, roll, crawl, climb, run, jog, lift something, whatever! Simply make it a priority to get 4-7 hours of movement each week.
No time to exercise?
Then you should prepare yourself to make time for doctor visits and going to the pharmacy.
Exert yourself. Butterflies have to struggle to get out of that cocoon. That struggle, however, is exactly what strengthens the wings and promotes blood flow so it can fly.
The butterfly could not fly without that struggle! Let out your inner butterfly!
Here's an important concept before I let you go out and release that butterfly.
