Being Overweight and the Highway to Obesity

by John Pike

Is being overweight the highway to obesity? I had to shake my head in disbelief when I heard on the news that there are towns in the US where 3 out of 4 people are overweight.

Please understand: being overweight isn't the same thing as obesity - MANY OF US ARE OVERWEIGHT - but being overweight is the highway to obesity, leading us to all the health issues and dangers obesity brings.

So if you want to lose weight, get in shape, and battle obesity, here are some bodybuilding diet tips for you:

  • Eat five or six small meals a day, rather than two or three big meals, as this helps us "Control Body Fat". Why is this so important? There is a quantum difference between weight loss and body fat control - most fad or crash diets burn off more lean muscle than fat, and THIS is where the substantial weight loss is manifested, by leaving you weak and tired and hungry all the time.

  • By contrast, small amounts of food substances taken five or six times a day allow the digestive system to provide a more productive application of assimilation of nutrition. LARGE volumes of food overburden the tummy, etc., and much of the food substances are immediately converted to fat in an attempt to deal with the overload. Imagine such an overload occurring three times a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year, and no wonder our digestive systems struggle to work efficiently!

  • My Homeopathic doctor told me how keeping the tummy busy with SMALL amounts of food is the secret to a healthy digestion. This practice alerts hormones and other secretions like bile etc., and keeps everything in constant motion, thereby creating a fat burning inferno.

A True Champion
by: Muscle by John

Dear Adam, my tears are many as I think about your tremendous bravery. I will stand by you in any way I can to assist and equip you, with knowledge and encouragement.

I salute your courage to stand up and say "I need help"! Well. Help is on the way, my have come forward in the nick of time, as you are at the age where your metabolic rate will be set for life.

From today on, we are going to change it for the GOOD.
  1. You are ultimately responsible for your own health, do not wait for your friends, you need to increase your activity and the best way to do that is to go out and walk.

  2. Do this alone and you will take pride in yourself, but Consistency IS the secret.

  3. I tell my kids to walk the distance of one set of lamp posts on their street, then trot for the second set. Repeat this Run / Walk alternately for five or six lamp posts and return walking out the return distance. As the weeks go by, you will walk and run faster and further. Try adding a lampost every three days, do this seven day a week and let me know how you feel.
