And yet, day after day and week after week I see the same people
trudging away on the treadmill, elliptical, cycle…making no progress.
there's the joggers out on the trail every morning. There's this one,
in particular. Three years ago when she first showed up, she was a bit
plump, but not too bad, and hard a certain Meryl Streep charm about her. She must've stuck with it for about three
months, maybe. Then you never saw her. Then, months later, she's out
there again, and fatter. Repeat. I saw her this morning for the first
time in a long time, and now way fat, bordering obese.
No doubt the product of a low-fat diet.
The diet and exercise "gurus" that line the shelves of your local B&N or Borders ought to be quaking in fear. This is the future, folks; people taking matters into their own hands, becoming their own laboratory, holding themselves publicly accountable, and getting real results. And you know what? It's so god dammed simple. And easy. It's just that real food and real exercise have been long forgotten. But you can't fool mother nature, and the evidence is literally everyplace you look. Almost everyone — everyone, even the "skinny" — is fat. Are you fat? Presuming you would like to do something about it, and I've got no beef with anyone who doesn't, when are you going to get to it? When? Craig's next contest starts September 1.
There's nothing to figure out. It's simple. Real food, no exceptions; i.e., nothing out of a box or a package. Nothing processed, and don't over process the stuff you make. If you bake, bake a roast or a salmon, or something. Real food. Always. Don't forget. No cake. That's not food.
Now, that's 80%, right there. Throw in some occasional fasting and some fun activities, and you're easily to 95%. Then decide if you want to go the other 5% and get ripped.
