You may have heard of the 80/20 rule which is applied in nearly every aspect of life. For example 20% of the population holds 80% of the wealth. This can also be applied to health. Doing 80% of the right things will allow you to achieve a great looking and feeling body.
So many times we are looking for those “secrets” that make up the 20% which we think will give us the results. There are many tips that I share that many people don’t know about, but they would fall in the 20%, but without living a healthy lifestyle these “secrets” won’t do much.
I recently was on google looking for common phrases people were searching for related to fitness. One of the most common phrases was “diet pill.” When I saw this it got my blood boiling and just reminded me again how lazy people are, looking for the miracle pill.
So what is the 80% I am talking about? I am talking about 4 pillars that I believe will allow you to reach all your goals.
3. Social Support
4. Right Mental Attitude
I get emails from people wanting to know which weight loss supplement they should take (I think most supplements don’t work, and if they do, only when combine with the above formula) Very seldom will I recommend a supplement to someone who has poor eating habits and inconsistent exercise. If someone is doing many of the right things, some supplements will definitely help some.
So lets stop trying to dissect quite so much the minute details of training and instead focus on the big picture.
1. Don’t eat crap
2. Get involved in high intensity exercise (sweat a lot)
3. Surround you with positive supportive people
4. Realize healthy is a life long process and ever evolving, don’t see it as a short term commitment.
Once you get those 4 pillars understood and start practicing them, then we can get into the small details and “secrets.”
