Have you ever thought about the diet that you execute every day. Diet does not necessarily mean, "weight loss" automatically. Have you ever heard of the phrase, "So-and-so's diet needs a healthy dose of whatever?" There are healthy diets and there are unhealthy diets. I would like to teach you guys and gals about a diet that is revolutionizing the way you will think about diets. WHY??? Because it is way different than the rest of the diets on the market today.
So, I was sitting down and thinking one day. I was thinking about what all the diets have in common. All of the diets have one thing in common, it is that diets are normally keeping track of calories or keeping track of stuff. It is a pain to keep track of stuff and I was sick of it. There is a benefit to keeping track of stuff, but I felt that keeping track of stuff was pointless and a waste of time and energy. I have come up with a diet that only keeps track of what you eat, not the calories, not the fat, just the substance of what you eat. There is no writing down anything, just thinking and a little bit of common sense. We want to see and realize what it is that we are eating. Let's get started!
The ETL Diet stands for the Easier Than Life Diet. This diet is easier than life, quite literally! The thing that makes it easy is that anyone can do it and it is completely re-writing the diet and weight loss industry as we speak. The thing that the weight loss industry doesn't want you to know is that you actually have a good chance of GAINING weight on their diet program rather than LOSING weight. Why is that? It is for the sheer fact that people don't want to keep track of EVERYTHING they eat, why they eat it and when they eat it. They don't want to do the point trackers, journals, shakes, jump through the hoops and other malarkey, tricks, and shenanigans to try to lose a small amount of weight. It is very expensive and time consuming to lose weight. Not on the ETL diet!
1. What Goes in Must Come Out
What goes in must come out. When you eat junk food, you are going to find that you don't feel good. Why do you think you feel bad when you eat McDonalds or other fast foods? It is because you eat GMO foods and straight hormones and chemicals. FAST FOOD COMPANIES DON'T WANT YOU TO DO RESEARCH TO SEE HOW BAD THEIR FOOD IS!!! They would go out of business if everyone knew how bad their food REALLY was.
On the flip side of the coin, when you eat what is good for you, then you will feel better and feel good. Your body will naturally feel better when you begin to eat better. When you eat fruits and vegetables, your body consumes what we would like to call, "healthy fuels." These healthy fuels convert to feeling better. Fresh fruits and vegetables have myriads of good vitamins and minerals in them. I also find that if you can add a supplement such as omega 3 fish oils, vitamin C, or gingko biloba, or panax ginseng, you can help add energy and efficiency to your body and can help you feel better. (Always consult your doctor before adding supplements to your diet!)
2. Watch What You Eat
All you have to watch with the ETL Diet is what you eat. As with the first point, all you have to do is eat better. If what you are planning on eating is not good for you, then you don't eat it. There is no keeping track of calories, carbs, or little meaningless things like that. All you have to do is make common sense decisions on eating good food, such as fruits, vegetables, grains, and stay away from sugar, candy, and soda. It is that easy!
Good food (fruits and vegetables) + Common Sense (thinking about what is good for you) = something you should eat
So many times we eat whatever tastes good to us, and our body naturally craves what is bad. The reason being is that our bodies have grown accustomed to eating the junk and that's what it accepts as good food or food that it wants to eat. Don't follow your tongue! Your tongue doesn't have the brains to know that food is bad for you. You have to use your brain and think about what is good and bad.
3. Think DifferentlyThere is a powerful tool that my pediatrician told me to use and he would suggest you using it as well. There is power in thinking differently. "Think of bad food as poison. This will allow your body to see bad food and the effects that it has on your body better," is what he told me. Think of bad food and drink as poison! If you know that it is going to be toxic to your body, then don't even put it in your body!
Exercising with the ETL Diet is this easy. All you have to do is exercise for 5 days a week at an 1 hour a day. With this diet you do cardio exercises, aerobics, weight lifting, martial arts, or bodybuilding. You may choose from these choices. Running falls under aerobics and is considered the best by most beginning dieters. Running at 4+ MPH is the best to start with. 5 days of exercise a week for 1 hour a day is easy. You get two days off and it makes it Easier Than Life. If you want to exercise for more hours on one of the days to compensate for other days in the week, you can do that too.

5. Share It With Friends
We are trying to go viral and we may write a book laying out our diet if we can get enough people to get on board. I have the book written but we need help in getting the word out there! I have lost weight in doing this. I went from 225 LB. to 180 LB. in a few short months. It was that easy. There was no hassles of starving, no keeping track of stuff, no nothing. I know what it is like to do the point trackers, the shakes, the junk and spending too much money and time on it. All you have to do is think about what you eat, exercise, and live your life!
We have come to the the midway point in the year and I want to encourage you to keep your New Year's resolutions! I urge you to keep going and lose that weight. As we are trying to finish up May, I am challenging you guys and gals to beat those fitness, weight loss, weight lifting, and bodybuilding goals to get to that beach body you deserve! You can do it!
