Taking Care of Yourself Doesn’t Have to be Complicated

I don’t know about you, but I’m the type of person that if you give me too many choices I just get overwhelmed.  Almost like when you go to your favorite restaurant and they give you their menu that looks like the food version of War and Peace.  WAY TOO COMPLICATED!

Health and fitness are the same way. There is a diet for everyone, every other day there is a new exercise craze that is out and supplements…oh man…don’t get me started on supplements. I’m positive that right now there is a guy in the darkest pits of Africa discovering a berry that no one knows about but the locals who all happen to be 150 years old and have six-pack abs.  Come on man! That’s just stupid.

Do Nothing

So what do most people do? They do nothing. They take the path of least resistance which is what I call the “Walmart Lifestyle.” Whatever is fastest, easiest and cheapest. But if you want to know what the Walmart Lifestyle gets you…go people watch at Walmart.  It’s not pretty.

Health and fitness don’t have to be all that complicated. Actually, I’m going to do you a favor today and simplify the whole thing. 99% of the time it all comes down to either toxicity or deficiency. Either you have too much of something or too little.

Why are you…?

Think about it. Why are you fat? Maybe it’s too much food and not enough exercise. Maybe it’s too much sugar and not enough fruits and vegetables. Why are you winded when you walk up a flight of stairs? Why do you get sick? Where does cancer come from? Why do people have heart attacks? Why does your back hurt? Why do you have bad posture? Why are you depressed? Well, it turns out…I can explain every one of those things because something is out of balance. Either there is something in your life that you need to cut out or something in your life that you need to add. Usually, it’s both toxicity and deficiency. And you will only get the long-term results you want if you address BOTH issues.

Final Thought

So what about you? What would you like to see improvement in your health? Have you ever considered looking at it this way? The formula is simple. Reduce where you have too much. Increase where you are deficient. Like I said…It doesn’t have to be complicated.
