Fit for the New Year with The Fat Doc, Dr. Braxton A. Cosby!0
Tonight, I’m sharing three fitness principles that you should focus on going into the New Year.
But first, (as always) I want to pose a question to you. What makes you feel more fit? Is it exercise, or eating right?
This is the foundation of health: understanding self, more than anyone else. You have to know You more.
And you can’t know yourself if you don’t know what makes you feel, well, better. Good days versus bad days; what makes the difference?
You can go to the doctor, join and gym, get a trainer, etc, but at the end of the day, you look in the mirror and subconsciously ask…
all the right questions. Who am I? What did I do today? Who did I effect the most?
But this is the most important one of them all: Did I make changes that are beneficial or detrimental to myself? #eatlessmovemore #FatDoc
So knowing what makes you feel good about being You is one powerful key to wellness.
I thought about this a lot when I attempting to create a fitness regimen that I would ultimately follow and pass on to others.
It eventually became the Eat Less Move More Campaign. #eatlessmovemore
Here are three components of that Campaign that I ask participants to focus on.
1. Eat what you like, but maintain portion control. With some exceptions. (Fried foods, carbonated beverages)
2. Move more. In fact, twice as much as you normally do. If you walk one mile a day, go for two. Exercise 30 minutes, go for 60 minutes.
3. Set Goals and stick to a plan that works. Don’t get easily discouraged. It takes time and dedication!
Anything worth having is worth working for. And there is nothing more important than being healthy. How else can you help someone else?
Remember: it took a long time to cultivate bad habits. It will take even longer to maintain good ones! #FatDoc
