How To Eat Clean & Lose Weight Permanently [Even With A Busy Schedule]
Working 80 hours a week and maintaining a healthy body weight is tough.
Unfortunately, most of the information online regarding weight loss focuses on the short term and is unhealthy.
Below you will find our most useful articles on the best methods of losing weight so that you can get back to your busy endeavors.
Introduction: Nutrition Facts & Myths
The very first thing we need to cover is the basics.
There is a lot of misinformation out there regarding healthy eating and weight loss.
In this section, I will separate fact from fiction so that you can stop wasting time on things that don’t matter.
Part 1: Eating To Lose Weight
Weight loss always has, and always will start with your diet.
Have you ever heard of the 80/20 rule?
When it comes to weight loss, your diet will make up at least 80% of your success, regardless of whether you exercise or not.
The truth of the matter is:
You will never be able to exercise enough to keep up with excessive caloric intake. 1 long, boring hour of cardio will only burn enough calories to cancel out that Starbuck’s pastry you had this morning.
Does that sound like a fair trade to you? I didn’t think so.
Part 2: Exercising To Lose Weight
Exercise is not necessary to lose weight, but it can certainly help you to a big extent.
The idea is that exercise will help you burn some extra calories while increasing your lean muscle mass percentage.
In doing so, you will increase your basal metabolic rate or the number of calories you burn at rest.
Here is how to exercise for weight loss.
Part 3: Analyzing The Most Popular Diets
The last thing we need to discuss is diets.
If you have read our articles above, you will see that we highly discourage you from following traditional diets.
With that said, I think there are some that are worth mentioning.
Below you will find a review of some of the most popular diets today, as well as our opinions on which ones are worth your time.
