Weight Loss is Only a Small Part of Health

Weight Loss is Only a Small Part of Health

There is a reason why you should never focus on your weight directly in a weight loss.

There’s a guy that went from 191 pounds to 188 pounds between December and January. So, that’s only a 3 pounds of weight loss and most of the time people lose more than that. It might look like a failure to lose only 3 pounds in a month but when you look at his body fat, he went from 64 pounds to 54 pounds. That is 7lbs of body fat, gone.

The question is:

How can you lose 7 pounds of body fat but you have only lose 3 pounds in weight? Doesn’t make sense.

It makes sense if you look at his muscle gain – he went from 120 pounds to 127 pounds which is an increase of 7lbs of muscle - losing all the fat and gaining muscle. This is a major health improvement on the inside.

Summary

You can’t just focus on weight because it is just a symptom of something else.

  1. Never treat the symptom. Get to the root cause.

  2. You have to get healthy first then lose the weight. A healthy body doesn’t gain weight.

  3. Take the quiz and find out your body type here: http://bit.ly/BodyTypeQuiz . Or you can come into my office and get a full evaluation of your health or continue to watch my videos each week on my blog.
