Love what you hate and seek what you are avoiding!

Try a dream or an experiment. Radically change your mental attitude. Instead of viewing a trip, work or physical exercise as a chore or punishment, look at them as blessings and genuine gifts that life is sending your way. Change your perspective -- doing is living! This mental reversal changes the situation radically. Look for any opportunity of doing with your body. Don't let technologies deprive you of any opportunity to be active. By giving over a major part of what you do to technology, you are essentially handing over a part of your life which renders you less active, and increases your weight!

To say that obesity is caused by merely consuming too many calories is like saying that the only cause of the American Revolution was the Boston Tea Party.” -Adelle Davis

This quote gets to the core of a basic question that is the topic of much discussion in bodybuilding circles. What’s more important: what you eat or how much you eat? A study conducted by the Institute for Nutrition and Cancer Research (INCR) discovered that 78% of adults agreed with the statement “the kind of foods you eat is more important than the quantity of food you eat” in regards to weight management. Very good arguments can certainly be made for and against the statement. It is true that your overall caloric balance during a given day will determine whether or not your weight changes. On the other hand, food choices can influence that caloric balance by influencing metabolic rate, the thermic effect of food (TEF), and satiety. In order for one to lose weight, and hence, body fat, one’s caloric expenditure must exceed their caloric intake and this requires energy intake control, and thus the quantity of food must be controlled (1).
