What the health: Part 3 – Excuses we use for not losing weight (continued)


(part1, part2)

  1. I don’t have money for gym or personal trainer


I have seen people spending loads of money on material things, brands, jewelry, 100 shoes/purses and whatnot but when it comes to taking care of their own body they say ‘it costs too much’.

Here is a blunt advice – I had suggest stop buying jewelry – it won’t make you look or feel good as much as a fit body would – spend the money on joining a gym. There are so many free options to workout too – go hiking, biking, there are innumerable exercise videos online, play music and dance your heart out, don’t forget yoga – you can do it anywhere and anytime.

  1. I love food a lot, in general

Great. Who doesn’t? But you don’t have to eat it all in one meal, do you? People eat in such quantities as if they are coming straight out of a famine and are not going to get next meal on their plate, remember there is always the next time, also remember that food stays in your mouth only for a few seconds and inside your stomach for very long, don’t give in for momentary pleasures, the high of having a fit body is way too long lasting.

Do not eat according to the health of your wallet! Wealthier that the wallets get unhealthier the food habits become. If I may say so – eat a poor man’s diet and by that I don’t mean American poor man’s diet – I mean Indian poor man’s diet – it is simple and easy to digest.

  1. My weight problems are genetic

No they are not, and I am not saying this – scientific research is. It is just too convenient to blame it on genetics.
