Default Study Stuff...Come on!?

Get to know yourself, understand yourself, press yourself for in-depth personal interpretation

The POWER of CHOICE (within diet and fitness) is both a curse and a blessing. Proper manipulation of choice, and you will maintain your course. Improper manipulation of choice will compel you to low levels of personal despair. When the Jews were in the concentration camps, they had their choices removed, set calories implemented, and a prescribed work load to complete. These persons lost a tremendous amount of weight and became bones. Did they suffer, absolutely. Did they like it? Of course not. In the end of things, they had no choice.

Its a wise person to "open up perception" on things within history (or on other things read)--and see MORE than most would see, and see if there is something to learn that is "applicable" to a personal situation. You appropriately handle "choice" within your life (when concerning diet and fitness), and you will become nearly unstoppable as you work down your goal path. When you open up perception with things you read, learn about the biological and psychological feed back one obtains when dieting and fitness training, and separate the brain from the body--as the empowering tower, and learn how to "properly" master your "unique" self, the odds of the fire within your spirit burning out goes down tremendously.

1. A diet vs. fitness plan optimized for fat tissue loss.

A. Determine your MT Line.
B. Create a small deficit (deficiting for fat loss)
C. Create calorie TARGETS each day
D. Track your calorie intake each day
E. Create an exercise program that is a FBW or an upper/lower split (when work and other life issues require such a split). Or flat develop "something" within the confines of what you have available to use (even marginally less equipment can get the job completed)

Understand that is the "total" body composite being worked versus your calorie intake that will EARN your goal. Incorporate compound lifts in your routine. Understand the "importance" of Squats and Dead lifts in your routine--and how and WHY these hate to love lifts will be a MAJOR player in your core development--more so (IMO) than direct ab work (I think these are minor players---in the equation I am relating). Understand too, that all the work you do will be for NOT (in "revealing" your work) if your diet is messed up (particularly in leaning down).

Know how to manipulate calories within your diet. IMO this is one of "most powerful" tools within ones arsonel; when applied correctly, and when one is tracking calories and has a general circumference of knowledge of the approximate calories burned during exercise. Lets face some bare facts. When one deficits to loose fat tissue, one is depriving the body of energy and FORCING the body to feed upon itself for its energy needs. Therefore, isnt it logical for the body to FIGHT YOU and "somewhat" be an enemy within your goal aspirations? Isnt it going to give you feed back with intense cravings, possibly low energy levels, depression, and other types of responses to COMPEL you to eat? Why be surprised. Have a plan of action to deal with these---biological and pyschological functions that ARE GOING TO COME. If you do not, the odds go UP you will fail. Therefore, one weapon in your arsonel can be manipulating the calories V. exercise ratio. For example, to allow you to eat more, but at the same time, keeping your deficits to loose appropriate fat tissue. This is only one very brief example.

A continuing education on diet V exercise techniques (manipulations of calories, manipulation of the three nutrients, etc) will SERVE to combat and deliver to ones self--in the event this "extra" education is needed to assist in eliminating problems.

This is one reason "among many" I advocate tracking calories--at least until you get to the point, that its such a life style change and you are so in tune with what you eat and what you do in fitness, that this is no longer necessary to continue your progress. I STILL track my calories. I want it on paper, I want to know where I am at in the energy IN side of the equation--because this is "critical" in lowering body fat.

The Diet is the fat burner first and foremost and without question. If the diet is messed up---you can do cardio (running) until the sun goes out (or even HIIT), and the fat will not come off. The correct way (or one way to say it) is: To burn fat one has to be in a caloric deficit (created through exercise, or just diet, or a combination of both diet and the exercise complimenting the diet). Cardio by itself DOES NOT get rid of fat---UNLESS, the diet is on the up and up. Once the diet is straight, THEN cardio could assist in the fat burning process--dependent on several bodily factors.

And one more ( ) :

No Fat Burning Program is Correct without the Deficit Diet Affect


The Deficit Diet will Subject the Fat Loss Zone to much Respect.


My point? No fat reduction program is optimum......without the Mighty calorie understood.

You obtain knowledge between the calorie and exercise---and learn all you can....most importantly--keep your perception OPEN never narrow it, and learn how to manipulate and apply what you learn.

You are the person who has to decide. Whether you'll do it or toss it aside; you are the person who makes up your mind. Whether you'll lead or will linger behind. Whether you'll try for the goal that's afar. Or just be contented to stay where you are.

Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.

Best wishes to all,

Age: 53
