Our Mission – The Fat Loss Habit

No Gimmicks. No Quick Fixes. Learn to form the habits essential to developing a lean, hard, fit body. A program backed by science, not bro-science.

Our MissionOur mission is to help as many people as possible to improve the quality of their lives. I believe it begins with improving our health and appearance. I found this to be true in my own life. Our health is our most valuable resource. Exercise improves our mood and focus. It can lift us out of depression. It has even been shown to stimulate our mind. When we begin to look better, we begin to feel better. I believe a better life starts with the development of healthy habits because that is where it started for me. Growing up as an overweight kid, I lacked self-confidence. Obesity runs in my family. My paternal grandfather died of a heart attack when my father was in his teens. My father was always struggling to lose weight. He was a brilliant well-educated man, an editor at the New York Times, but he was never able to lose the weight.

The Habit: Week-12 (Overcome Our Natural Tendency to be Negative)

“Negative is normal. It is not successful, but it’s normal.” Jim Rohn

When the negative thoughts come – and they will; they come to all of us – it’s not enough to just not dwell on it. You’ve got to replace it with a positive thought.” Joel Osteen

Negative is normal. Neglect is natural. They aren’t helpful, but they are natural. People don’t rubberneck when they see a beautiful sunrise; they rubberneck to see a horrific accident. Weeds don’t require nurturing; they only need neglect to grow.

THE NO EQUIPMENT, NO EXCUSES WORKOUT

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” Theodore Roosevelt

If you want to start exercising here is a simple, workout you can do that doesn’t require any equipment. These workouts should take no more than 20 minutes to complete, but if you do them consistently, you will get results.

            I believe that everyone should do a combination of strength training and cardio training. Both improve our physical and mental performance. I have written about the surprising effects that regular exercise has on our mood, focus, and mental performance so I won’t go into detail here, but if you aren’t aware of the many benefits, check out The Habit: Week-3 (Morning Exercise) It’s for the Mind more than the Body!

In her book, Depression Is a Choice: Winning the Battle Without Drugs, A. B. Curtiss argues that most people can control the syndrome without the use of drugs and without the burden of endless therapy. In her book, she draws from her own experiences with depression, anecdotes from her practice, and a wealth of information about the history of the treatment of depression.[i] She acknowledges that depression in its most extreme forms is best treated through pharmaceutical and psychoanalytical intervention.

Clinical depression is a disease. I don’t wish to add to the stigmatization of depression.The stigmatization of depression is why approximately 80% of the people with depression don’t seek treatment.[ii] Continue reading “IS DEPRESSION A CHOICE?”
