The history of ‘simplicity’ within diet lay not in the modern exercise sector but instead within our collective history, customs and how to live a better quality of life. Choosing the ‘simplicity’ approach tends to bypass issues typically associated with diet, such as weight loss, and immediately goes to the crux of improving lifestyle. Yet in one of the rarest ‘win-win’ situations those who chose said ‘simplicity’ approach are rewarded with improved health, weight-loss, generally save a great deal of money on food and with parents and grandparents, impart a important character traits that last generations.
‘Simplicity’ is not a stripped down approach to dietary advice and intense scrutiny of macronutrients but a series of very traditional lifestyle guidelines that in-fact that has been validated in the modern exercise community. The advice of many of grandparents (or older) generation was golden and well beyond anything you will find amongst the mainstream ‘diet gurus’ who spend more time of clever branding that actually dealing with the real world problem. Unfortunately these classic ‘old-world’ customs that were once rooted in our culture have been abandoned but much of the modern world and with it the the rate of obesity has soared with quality of life dropping.
Certainly steeped in a more agrarian society, daily work would start at or slightly prior to dawn. After said ‘morning chores’ were complete it would be time for a healthy breakfast that equally would likely contain energy staples such as porridge, oatmeal, buckwheat kasha, millet or other similar grain.
Consider this point wisely as it is both provides clue to the importance of active work on empty stomach first thing in the morning, followed with a meal with a high carbohydrate level.
With this in mind a very effective morning workout is a medium intensity combination of RED2, DMC™ and range of motion work (see http://usplabsdirect.com/blog/instant-training-improvement-tips-success-on-the-pitch-part-2.html for a straight forward template that can be repeated near daily).
Furthermore within traditional customs, meals were limited to the family table and thereafter sparing with carbohydrates effectively limited in the final six to eight hours of the waking day. This approach is remarkably effective in assisting weight loss and a part of each of our ancestors’ dietary customs.
Summarily, ‘simplicity’ is steeped in each of our families’ background and if the world is to be rid of obesity it will be done by restoring these habits. The following approaches will go a long way to improving the quality of life and the the simple way to lose weight.
- Perform light to moderate exercise or manual labour chores, upon rising.
- Consume a morning tonic of warm water, non-pasteurised honey (local sources) and a ¼ slice of lemon, along with a further ½ glass of water with ¼ teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate.
- Following exercise, start your day with a hearty breakfast that includes complex carbohydrates such as such as porridge, oatmeal, buckwheat kasha, millet or other similar grain.
- Prior to meals with a great amount of complex carbohydrates utilise Anabolic Pump .
- Greatly limit carbohydrates the final six to eight hours of your waking day (please note this issue is complicated for those who exercise late at night before sleep given the need for pre and post workout meals)
‘Simplicity’ it's not a diet but a return to a better way of life.
