We look in the mirror, alpilean complaints (please click the next post) try out on a new pair of pants, or step on the weighing machine, and tend to be not happy with what we see or feel. It’s possible that we’re working after a bus, walking the dog, or perhaps playing with the kids or perhaps grandkids and realize we are quickly worn out where by once we would not have granted it a second thought.
We’re officially “overweight”, and something should be done!
The reaction is automated, along with a whole industry has risen up which feeds on this one thought:
“I should be deprived of weight!”
“Weight loss as well as fat reduction aren’t the same thing. You must figure out how to distinguish between the 2. The weighing machine can be extremely misleading if it’s the sole conditions you use for measurement.” –Tom Venuto, “Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle”
But, the issue just isn’t that “weight “fat and loss” loss” are not necessarily the same. The big issue, at least for me, tends to be that people who do not understand a lot about the way the human body, physical exercise, and nutrition work, as well as the interactions between & among them, tend to assume that since the issue is “weight” the solution is “less weight”.
This usually leads the individual down two trails, typically at the same time, if you can imagine that.
The first is the easiest path.
