Unlocking the ‘secrets’ of weight loss and good health
I’m just working on my next little book, which is called ‘127 Weight Loss Tips’ from MotherNaturesDiet. I think you will like it, it’s full of my usual common sense simplicity - here is a top tip from something I wrote yesterday:
Try to avoid the word ‘secrets’ – anything that offers you ‘unlocking the secrets to good health’ or ‘discover the weight loss secrets of the stars’ or ‘bringing you the secret formula that only the chosen few know’ or any of a million other tacky ways these company try to sell you supplements, superfoods, diet plans, workout routines, home-workout equipment and ‘new’ exercises.
The word secret tends to be stuck to products with a price tag on them, it’s a marketing tactic. They make you think they know something you don’t, so that you feel you have to part with some of your money to find out what it is. Don’t fall for that trick.
There are NO secrets to good health. It’s really just simple stuff:
- Don’t eat junk and sugar
- Eat real food, like vegetables and meat and fish
- Move your body in a variety of ways that work up and sweat and get you out of breath
- Repeat. Daily. For ever
There are no greater secrets than that.
Oh so there is some berry with more vitamin C in it than some other berry. Yee haa. That’s no reason to pay out a small fortune to buy a pot of the stuff, dried and powdered so you can add it to your ‘superfood smoothie’.
Oh so they want to teach you the ‘6-pack secrets’ of the top pro fitness models? Go running, sweat, lift some weights, eat clean. That’s how they got a 6-pack, not because of some crazy piece of home workout kit that you can buy for £99.99 and it’ll squeeze your abs for 20 minutes-per-day while you watch TV from the comfort of your living room.
Stay away from ‘secrets’ – the only secret is that some company is keeping the truth secret from you. And that truth is that good health is your natural, given birth right, and if we just stop consuming garbage, eat clean real food as given to us by Mother Nature, and lead an active life and keep our bodies strong, moving and flexible, then we will all enjoy abundant good health for many years.
Look out for my little book coming real soon, which will contain this little gem of common sense, and another 126 more like it.
