The Biggest Problem we face in the US: Obesity
Studies show 70% of the US population is either overweight or
obese. These staggering numbers have shot up since the non/low fat
revolution where sadly sugar intake has doubled. For the first time
in history, our children (the next generation) will not out live the
current generation. 35% of our children are now overweight and
this number grows daily. Studies also show over 600,000 people die
a month in this country due to heart disease, cancer and diabetes. I
have been a bodybuilder for 33 years and always had a passion for a
healthy lifestyle. From 40 to 48 years old, while working out 6 days a
week, I was uncomfortable with my shirt off in public. I thought if I
am uncomfortable, gosh what does the average person feel? Then I
started noticing many adults stay covered up when it is hot out. So I
decided to change my life forever . I knew what to do, as I had been
bodybuilding for a majority of my life. I started a high protein lifestyle.
I don’t believe in diets. They don’t work. The human mind does not
like to sacrifice and can only do it for a short period of time. I call it the
yo yo effect. Someone will decide to go on a “diet” and lose 10 pounds,
then get discourage or fall off the wagon and gain 15 pounds back.
The answer is adopting a high protein moderate carbohydrate lifestyle.
One free of sacrifice. The key is small changes. For instance, a white
chocolate mocha has 628 calories. A nonfat sugar free vanilla Latte has
110 calories. Just change that one thing and you will save 518 calories a
day or 3,626 calories per week. Since a pound of fat is 3,500 calories one.
This is a picture of me at 51 years old, and less that 5%
body fat. I am never hungry. I have an endless amount of energy.
Yet high protein lifestyle can be monotonous as how much chicken and egg whites can one person eat? The key is including high protein food choices that taste great. A high protein diet that has moderate carbohydrates achieve high energy without the sugar fall (body’s reaction to sugar is producing insulin)
dropping below the pre meal blood sugar . With the pace of life these days,
it is hard to get proper nutrition and people often miss meals.
Eat a sensible breakfast, two high protein fresh/frozen meals during the day, high protein snacks and a sensible dinner and you will be amazed at the results.
