So you realize the only way your point holds water with your own example is if you're a slave to your desires, trapped by the tube, living off fast food, destitute and fat as fuck?
or perhaps it's actually simple as just don't eat so much you fat ass. If you insist on eating more volume, eat whole foods.
make good food choices.
it's not complicated, but it's also not easy. Few things are.
No. Boris wanted what I eat and pay.
Societal pressures (including lower cost of fast food and unhealthy food) are upstream of CICO and make just do it fatty not useful.
Look at those pics of brazil a generation ago. Those are same people with same willpower. What changed? The food industry and advertising.
Your approach was pointless for the majority then and pointless for the majority now because in the past their culture wasn't hell bent on making them fat to turn a profit for corporations and right now it is. One has to address that before any progress can be made.
I'd rather sit on my computer and find Mopars and strnage new forms of porn on all day...societal pressures and the advotainment industry has made these devilish devices nearly impossible to resist...and yet....we do. every day. I don't know what your billable are, mine are right around 1600 plus a side business, an active training schedule and kids. I make time for stuff. Does it take will power...yes. Same as diet.
No matter how many pearls you put on the pig, dieting success of all kinds comes down to one simple metric. CICO. Use whatever strategies make you feel like you're not a slave to your primal influences, the fact remains, you're pushing uphill. Pretending you're not a slave to CICO is what derails 99% of the people out there. There is no magic. It's just hard. instead of lying to yourself and others, why not just address the painful truth. Accept that it's hard and then it get easy.
Yes. Hunger is a part of the deal..and it's normal. Discomfort is a part of training,
Life is full of all manner of discomfort we are wired to resist. Pretending as you and Bux like to, that there is a better easier slicker magic way is what fails people. Always Always Always.
How do I know this? Because I've done it, successfully, I've taken my body from 210 to 140s and back to the 240's and then back down to below 200 and back up to 225. It's uncomfortable. Going up being much harder than down for sure....but by keeping your eye on the simpel metrics, you make much more progress much more quickly than getting off in the weeds. I also know this shit works because I coach people to do it. I teach people how to do uncomfortable things so they aren't a slave to their internal torpor. These are not outliers, I'm not an outlier, I'm just a normal guy who found it's not healthy to lie to yourself.
Shit is hard. Get over it.
