Cut down. Eat half of what your normally eat. Why don’t you exercise more?
I think by this point in our collective history, we all know that there is way more to weight loss than just the old adage of ‘eat less and move more’, but there is still some truth in that saying, and a multitude of science literature is there to prove it.
I’m concerned with the volume of fat, water, and gas that I’m carrying with me at all times.
The water is what makes me heavy, the fat is what is driving me crazy and the gas is what makes me miserable.
Oh, and I almost forgot, I’m probably full of shit too; literally.
If I’m being honest with myself and with all of you, my quality of life has gone down in a physical sense over the past few months because of being a lot less active and though I don’t remember specifically, probably over indulging too.
It’s kinda shitty to acknowledge it, but hey, the truth sucks sometimes.
To make matters worse, here I am suffering the consequences from of the lack of activity: the anxiety producing symptoms of “Sitting Disease”.
Somehow all of the health complications seemed to just sneak up on me and literally come from nowhere. How the eff does that even happen? How do I not clearly remember doing what it is that got me here?
Every single obese person in the world also has some sort of mental health issue that is 100% tied in to when and how they eat. But, it turns out that might this just might be a chicken and egg situation or a critical mass sort of thing where the causality could be one or the other, and who knows which caused which.
The scary part about this is that I am not alone in this endeavor. There are millions of people suffering this same fate.
I’m going to try to make this food blog a bit more scientific.
So that means collecting some data.
A master timeline of what I’m doing as it involves taking in food and drink, expelling waste, what I’m doing movement-wise, how I’m sleeping, and most importantly, my weight (mass).
In an effort to see what actually works to reduce body weight and what doesn’t.
It should be easy enough with a smartphone at the ready.
