Im a big believer in who you surround yourself with is who you become so for years now I’ve been listening to the Jillian Michaels podcasts. Funny, informative & typically health & fitness related.
If you’ve never heard of Jillian Michaels, just know she’s a bad-a$$ fitness trainer & health & wellness ambassador.
So instead of listening to the horrors of the world on the news, my day typically starts with a podcast. Today’s was from back in August. Completely forgot about this episode! In it she talks about this great Ted Talk she listened to. Again, switch off the news, put Ted Talks on. So this Ted Talk is all about the science of losing weight, something that makes me intrigued. I’m a nerd, I’ll read it, learn it, practice it & then put it into my teaching.
So the Ted Talk you need to watch is this, The Mathematics of weight loss by Ruben Meerman. Here’s what you need to know. If you believe that 1+1=2, then this is all you need to know about weight loss. Are you ready for this revelation…?
We all have fat, even runway models. If we didn’t, we would die. It can be anywhere, toes, tummy, wrists, fingers…EVERYWHERE. Think of it like those one size fits all jeans. Everyone has the same size of fat storage. EVERYONE. It just depends how much you choose to store.
Now we could be here a while if I explained the concept of how fat is made but let’s just make peace with the fact that any sugar you eat and don’t burn as energy will sore in your body. Once your body is pretty sure it’s not getting used…it turns it into fat. But you don’t eat a lot of sugar so that’s ok, right?
Another mind blowing fact…sugar is sugar, carbohydrates is sugar, fruit (although in a better form) is sugar. All of the below…that is sugar.
ALL SUGAR…not kidding…
So how is weight loss easy peasy? Well, I won’t spoil the video but I will give the key points. To lose weight we have to use the fat stored in our cells. The ONLY way to do this healthily is to reduce your intake & move more. The clever way to do it is to find a great group of friends who all want the same & to do it with them. Which is why I created the Wolfpack Trackers.
Find your people, learn about the science of weight gain/loss & finally stop this perpetual cycle.
The long & short of it is we lose what’s stored in the fat cells by being consistent. Eat less, move more. But the fascinating point is…in the end we breathe it all out. (Watch the video)
The next Wolfpack Trackers starts in 4 weeks time. Let’s learn the science & get healthy for life, together.
