4  Ways to Avoid Weight Gain this Holiday Season

I’m no athlete, why should I worry about protein?

Why?  Because even if your favorite exercise is holding down the recliner, one thing leads to another:  Less protein means less muscle mass, means lower metabolic rate, means more fat, means lower energy level, means less physical activity… and the cycle continues downhill, ultimately leading to poor health outcomes.

We all need lean meat or plant protein to provide a quality resource for our bodies to build up quality muscle.  No surprise, the RDA is way too low:   0.8 Gm per kg, or roughly 45-75 Gm protein/ day.  That’s about half of what we actually need– women and elderly especially need to take note, since these 2 groups traditionally eat less protein than they should.

How?  Eat 3 moderate meals and 2 to 3 snacks/ day, AND include protein with each snack/ meal.  If you’re trying to lose weight on celery sticks and carrots, you’re in for an uphill battle… simply add some turkey or boiled eggs to your vegi break, and watch your results improve!   Include undenatured whey protein shakes**– this is the best protein source not only for improved absorption and usage within the body, but also because it provides large amounts of protein in a smaller volume, and is easily consumed.

What else?  Exercise… yep, no getting around the fact that light to moderate exercise every day is the secret to longer, higher quality life.  Fortunately, having better muscle tone and energy will pick up your mood and desire to get up and move more!

It’s not WHAT you want, it’s how BAD you want it!

Every decision is a balancing act:  Effort vs Reward.

Making the decision to change, to go down a difficult path, means your reasons to succeed have outweighed your excuses to fail.  I’m still struggling with this myself, but every step in the right direction makes my resolve stronger for the next time.

Decision Choose Change or Same Old Street

I’ve read several books and articles about highly successful people and there’s one overwhelmingly common element:  they WON’T give up, and they refuse to listen to even one million “No’s,” or one million voices saying “you’ll never succeed,” all they know is ‘try again’.

We can only be responsible for our own paths, our own results, our own successes or failures.  In the end, reaching your goal will be that much more meaningful because it wasn’t easy.  The day I literally made it to the top of this mountain, healthy enough to return to snow skiing at 53 years old, was the day I quit listening to my own voice that said “you’re too old and overweight to get back in shape.”  Now all I hear is “what’s next?!”
