calories are king and Teacher proves it
In a world blighted by obesity and poor health, the fitness industry which i believe should be at the forefront of helping to fight the problem is hell bent on scaring those that need help talking about eating chicken and broccoli all day long and prepping meals like their weight loss depends on it.
Do you honestly think any family that's massively over weight are honestly just gonna wake up one day and decide they going to switch to eating chicken and broccoli when all they have previously lived on is pizza and takeaways ......
Just imagine if the fitness industry just focused more on helping people just to start lose weight over preaching how to eat, taking people that really need help and just getting them to understand that to lose weight we have to cut back on how much we are eating, not what we are eating.
A school teacher in America did just that by losing weight on eating nothing but McDonald's alone, John Cisna lost over 56lbs eating what most would describe as unhealthy food and food that you could never lose weight eating.
John Cisna weighed 280 pounds when he started on the McDonald's-only diet.
After 90 days, he had lost 37 pounds, and at the end of the six months, he weighed 224 pounds.
Cisna limited his daily calorie intake to 2,000 calories and exercised for 45 minutes five times a week.
They have now made a documentary follows his journey, while incorporating footage from an amateur video he filmed while conducting the experiment.
In the film, Cisna pushes the message that you can eat anything you want as long as you control calories and exercise.
Cisna says he ate almost everything on the menu, and ordered fries every single day.
"I ate 540 straight meals at McDonald's," Cisna says. "I spent a half a year of my life eating nothing but McDonald's and I know it works so when I hear the skeptics, it doesn't disgruntle me. It actually fires me up because those are the people that I have to educate."
So successful weight loss doesn't have to be chicken and broccoli, everybody these days is on a diet and failing massively, just imagine if we just educated people on how weight loss occurs or if we actually took time to understand where people are actually at with their eating habits and relationship with food and not try to force them to do something that's never gonna last at the stage they are at now.
This is something that we educate people on that enroll in our Hartlepool Personal Training program, we do not try to make massive drastic changes that will not last, i guess coming from a place of once been massively over weight i have an understanding that most never will.
No chicken and coolie protocol for us.
