Welcome back here to franktortorici.com. I wanted to touch on the importance of people grasping the concept that you cannot out-exercise a poor diet and poor lifestyle. It’s one of the most common things I see as a personal trainer, wellness coaching. It’s just a common thing that people just have this concept that if they go on the treadmill for an hour and burn off the calories then they’ve eliminated that horrible meal that they had for dinner and desert last night.
That may be the case if we’re stuck in numbers, obviously, if I ate 860 calories and then I went on the treadmill and burned 1,000, whatever it may be. If we’re talking from a numbers standpoint and you’re caught up in that concept then I could understand how one could buy into that theory so to speak.
Really at the end of the day when all is said and done, it’s like I always say: stop counting calories and start reading the ingredients. Get over the nutrition facts; get into the ingredients. It’s two separate things. I think once you do that you start to understand more that the whole theory of out-exercising a poor diet is total BS. Again, when we’re looking at things from a holistic standpoint … Again, if you’re looking at this from a conventional standpoint then it makes total sense. Numbers and numbers and if we’re caught up in numbers then we follow those guidelines and those restrictions.
But when we’re looking at a holistic standpoint, and the belief in holistic is preventative measures. If you’re going to scarf down a number two with a super-sized soda and then think that later on in the day you’re going to burn that off in the gym, again, you may burn those calories off but when we talk holistic we dive into the principles and the beliefs that every time we’re putting in toxicity we’re building more depth and layers of gook that eventually has to come out, because if it does not come out it acidifies more, it calcifies, and just creates more illness and disease in the body.
On the holistic means there is no way to out-exercise any diet, poor diet. From a holistic means it’s embodying a holistic lifestyle and being able to implement that day in and day out without even thinking. I always say it’s like rebooting the motherboard of a computer. Same thing with how you view what you put in your body, when and why. At the end of the day when we talk preventative and holistic there’s no out-exercising any poor lifestyle. The only way to really attack that thoroughly is to just change one lifestyle for the better and not holding onto old thought patterns and just action patterns of when we eat, how we eat, and why we eat.
Again, just to really bring this home, changing one lifestyle is the key to getting the weight off, keeping the weight off, feeling better mentally, having more energy, having more happiness. There’s the three H’s that this one profound had taught me. Everyone should be happy, hungry, and horny. If we’re not, there’s obviously a shift that’s taking place in our body that is not wanted. No matter how much you exercise, if you’re putting in crap you’re not going to out-exercise that crap. Changing the lifestyle is where it’s at!
Peace and love.
