We all aren’t born with the knowledge of how to properly lose 30 pounds or more. Sure, we might know a little bit, but rarely enough. All it takes is just a little bit of research. So, here is a bit of the basics that everyone should be aware of.
The tried and true rule of fat loss is that you must consume fewer calories than you burn. Don’t forget that exercise is also an integral part of the equation. While a healthy diet has the most impact on your weight loss, exercise is still important. Here I’ll be discussing some things on how to improve your diet.
A lot of things can be eaten, that doesn’t mean that they should. Bark, dirt, and poison can be eaten, but none are considered food. I also don’t consider junk food as food. Here are some things to keep in mind when trying to lose weight.
Can you think of one reason why anyone should eat donuts? What do they consist of – sugar and flour? Don’t forget about them being deep fat fried. And when people eat them for breakfast, it is usually the only thing eaten.
Soda, filled with nothing but water and sugar, is another staple that needs to go the way of the dinosaurs. Diet soda, with it’s chemicals, is not a better choice. There is really no reason to drink any kind of soda.
Potato chips and french fries are poison. The negatives of this type of food far out-way any positive nutrients. It simply needs to be eliminated from your diet entirely.
Here are some of the things that you should be eating. Fiber and protein should be your first choices when deciding what to eat. Natural foods, such as chick, fish, fruits and vegetables are the way to go. If you have to eat bread and pasta, go for the “whole wheat” kind.
It’s important to note when you eat. Every three hours is ideal. If you have a big meal, make it breakfast or lunch. If all you’re trying to do is lose around 30 pounds, go for a range of between 1600 and 2200 calories (depending on how much you already eat).
Even though most weight loss comes from a proper diet, you still need exercise to compliment it. The more you like the workout, the more likely you’ll continue with it. Whatever you decide to do, it must be strenuous enough for you to break a sweat and difficult enough for you to have a conversation. First talk to your doctor before starting your program, and then get those muscles moving! Get to it!
The Tall Boys
In the beginning, God created the Tall Boys–a high-strung, far-flung Country/Western duo who write music so profound, it's helped collapse six totalitarian regimes. Both emerging from meager roots in Texas and Pennsylvania respectively, these two knuckleheads met at a fat-chick karaoke bar in Gulfport, MS sometime in early 2014. After the two drunk Southern Mississippi grads realized that the other could write music and also wanted to restore the glory of Country Music, the collaboration of the century began. The Tall Boys currently have over 120 original songs and writing weekly! People have commented on our style of music as bluegrass, punk, blues, and rockabilly. We're currently playing on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi (Ocean Springs, Gulfport, Biloxi). If you listen to good music and appreciate originality, then sit back, relax and enjoy–or, come experience The Tall Boys in person.Willie J. Robinson (PA/MS): vocals, rhythm guitar, percussion, bass, piano/keys, mandolin, harmonica. Curtis Tomlinson (TX): vocals, lead guitar, slide, mandolin, banjo, percussion. Johnny W. Ponytail (MS): percussion/drums, cajonThe recordings are not the greatest quality, but it's the live performance you must see! We're currently working on a professional quality album. Come see us live and your mind will be blown like Nagasaki, circa 1945.
