Life does not promise easy, fair, fun, happiness, or even health. In fact, life is hard and guess what, work is required and never an option. It is up to each one of us to create the lifestyle that we live and this is not going to be found in a jar, pill, powder, or shake. If popping a “fit pill” was the answer to all things magical and provided the body of our dreams inside and out, then I definitely would not need to write this blog. The facts are in and they have been for decades that the way to obtain a fit physique is through consistent healthy food intake, regular exercise, plenty of rest, water, and balance of life.
The “want it now” society tries every side-step method to achieve what can only be done through sweat producing work. There is not a pill or shake that is going to teach a person how to shop and select healthy foods for life and they will surely not sprout legs and exercise so that we consume the activity benefits. What usually does occur with quick fix programs is possibly some weight loss due to very low calorie diets and bodies that are running on empty experiencing negative side effects like dizziness, blood sugar and pressure issues, and nutrient deficiencies just to name a few. Frustration and discouragement typically follow as the program just does not feel good and studies have shown that any weight lost is put back on plus more.
Work goes with life, supplying our needs and wants. We want things so we work for them, and the same is true of our health. Health comes at the price of time, energy, and simply eating healthy food. The work is challenging and that is a great thing because it does change us, makes us stronger and better able to enjoy our body and life overall. We can no longer think that tricking health through gimmicks and potions is acceptable. That would be comparable to owning the golden goose and not having to put in our eight to five for a living. We are no strangers to what work feels like and it can be rewarding and provide an overwhelming feeling of accomplishment. The results of hard work are being able to achieve and have what we want and desire in life, and is never optional. If having a healthy fit body is the desire, put in the work and see what happens.
