Quit the Quick-Fix Mentality (it doesn't work)- A to Z Weight-Loss Tips for Long-Term Success - Tip Q


We live in an instant gratification society. When we want something, we want it now! And, of course, we want it to be easy and painless, as evidenced by all of the diet books with titles like:
"Lose 20 pounds in 20 days"
"Lose Weight While you Sleep"
"Lose Big and Fast"
"The Doctors's Quick Weight-loss Diet Cook Book."

The reality is we don't gain pounds of weight overnight (or in 20 days).  Weight gain is a gradual process that results from poor dietary choices coupled with lack of exercise.  We don't gain the weight quickly, so we can't expect it to come off, and STAY OFF, quickly either. This is not realistic. 
Weight loss is a gradual process...it takes time!


Here is the real deal and why you should 
Quit the Quick-Fixes:

  • Quick fixes are time and money-wasters. Think about it: drinking a funky-smelling, horrible tasting concoction or taking dangerous supplements cannot be done forever.  Even if some weight is lost initially, you will gain it all back because you cannot live on detox cleanses, funky juices, or crazy fad diets forever. 
  • Losing weight and getting fit is a gradual process that involves  changing your lifestyle with small steps over time. 
  • To adopt a newer, healthier lifestyle, you have to set realistic goals for yourself and be willing to make the essential changes to achieve those goals.  
  • You have to earn it through hard work and dedication that will continue for the rest of your life if you want the weight to stay off permanently. 

So, Quit to Quick-Fixes. Read my other blog entries on weight-loss tips to help you get started with small, simple changes for gradual and permanent weight loss that will last a life time.  You got this!

  6. While the mainstream fitness media still insists that aerobic
    exercise is a great way to lose weight, Turbulence Training users
    know that interval training is the better way to burn body fat.

    Still not convinced?

    A recent study published by the North American Association for the
    Study of Obesity, subjects aged 40 to 75 were instructed to do 60
    minutes of aerobic exercise per day for 6 days per week for an
    entire year.

    Given the amount of exercise, you'd expect weight losses of 20, 30
    pounds, or more, right?

    Well, the surprise findings showed the average fat loss for female
    subjects was only 4 pounds for the entire year, while men lost 6.6
    pounds of fat over the year. That's over 300 hours of aerobic
    exercise just to lose a measly 6 pounds of blubber. Not time well
    spent, in my opinion.

    So what's the better way? Stick with Turbulence Training, using
    interval training and strength training to get better bodysculpting
    results. With intervals, you'll achieve more fat burning results in
    less workout time.

    The next time you are out exercising, perform a session of interval
    training. If you are walking or running outside, find an incline
    that can challenge you for 60 seconds, then walk down for 60-120
    seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

    If you walk or run on a treadmill, adjust the incline or speed to
    safely increase the challenge for 60 seconds, then return to the
    normal pace for 60-120 seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

    You can also use a rowing machine, bicycle or stationary bike, or
    even an elliptical machine to do intervals.

    But whatever you do, stay away from boring, ineffective cardio
    exercise workouts and stick with Turbulence Training for your fat
    burning program.

    "I'm 25 and was seriously overweight at the start of this year. I've
    been doing the TT for Fat Loss Workouts and after 5 months of
    training. I've lost nearly 28lbs. I want to take this opportunity
    to thank Craig for making your knowledge so accessible and your
    articles and blogs that not only make us think about our
    lifestyles, but encourage us to change them for better health."

    "Turbulence Training makes so much sense and I really enjoy the
    different workouts so never get bored. From an aussie that was
    looking for something other than just another weight workout
    with the same old moves this has been a real eye opener for me and
    I have been telling my friends just how great the TT method is."
