Learning healthy, safe fat loss techniques.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend! The weather was really nice here, so I wound up working in the yard quite a lot. Everything is either blooming, or about to bloom. After the especially harsh winter (harsh for Orlando), it’s so nice to see all the plants growing and thriving once again.

Four or five years ago I didn’t know a podocarpus from a petunia, and had absolutely no idea how to care, feed, prune and properly maintain plants, trees and shrubs. Back in 2005 I had my old house professionally landscaped, and found myself a bit panicked about how I was going to keep up with the large investment I’d just made. The Internet made learning what I needed to know pretty easy: all it took was some time spent reading and studying, and then applying what I learned. Once I had the basics down, I felt comfortable enough to begin experimenting and adjusting to further enhance the results.

The whole “learning to garden” phase of my life reminded me of when I decided to lose fat and get in shape back in 2003. It’s not like our bodies come with manuals, and much of what I thought I knew about losing fat was inaccurate, inefficent and – wost of all – unhealthy. Once you become somewhat knowledgeable about proper, healthy fat loss techniques, a conversation with almost anyone on the subject of fat loss is pretty much guaranteed to make you cringe. It’s amazing how much bad information is out there, and how ingrained it seems to be.

If you are starving yourself, skipping meals, afraid of carbs, taking diuretics and/or popping “fat burners” like candy, please take some time to read some of the educational material on the forum. Start here. The time you spend reading and learning will be well-rewarded if you apply what you learn.

Well, I’ve got a very busy day ahead followed by a brutal leg workout. I’m going to sign off for the day and get some breakfast in me. I hope your day is a great one!
