You’re tired of hiding your eyes when you step on the scale and you’re ready to get active and get fit. That’s great news! The problem, however, often lies in how to get from Point A to Point B. This is where a solid foundation before you ever step foot in a gym becomes essential.
Yes, you heard that right, “before” you begin a new exercise program a solid foundation that will support the journey ahead must be established first.
So what defines a solid foundation, and why is this so important…?
I’m going break this down in two essential steps and to make sure you have a clear understanding I’m going to use two every day examples to help, your home and vehicle.
Lets begin with your vehicle, a stable in today’s way of life that we depend on daily to transport us to and from. We expect our vehicles to run and assume they will get us safely to our destination. But what happens when we fail to properly take care of our vehicles and neglect regular maintenance? What happens if we put the wrong fuel in the vehicle, like diesel fuel in a gasoline car…?
We find ourselves sitting on the side of the road stranded!
Well, your body is no different. After months, even years of neglectfully putting all the wrong types of fuels and chemicals in our bodies eventually we brake down. And until we get everything flushed out and put the proper fuel back in the system, getting healthy will be almost impossible.
Building A Foundation Step One-Before beginning any new exercise or nutrition program you must stop filling the body with garbage like cakes, candy, sugars, soda, coffee, fast food, etc…and cleanse the body to flush out all the gunk that’s clogging your system from years of neglect.
Finally, you begin fueling the body with nutritious whole foods again. Any dependancies & cravings diminish and a new found confidence and control begin to take hold. Your digestive system is now efficiently absorbing necessary nutrients and providing you with a foundation to begin your journey for peak performance and health.
Let’s now turn our attention to our homes. Our homes which we spend a third or more of our lives in, which we depend on for safety, protection, and to hold all our most valued possessions.
Image now if you will, that when your home was built only half the required blocks were used to build the foundation. What do you think would happen…? It would only be a matter of time before the foundation would brake down and compromise your precious home.
Building A Foundation Step Two-Before beginning a new exercise program it’s critical that you provide the body with a complete set of building blocks, failure to do so over time will result in almost certain failure.
To achieve optimum results you must avoid missing pieces in your nutrition program and provide the body with all the necessary building blocks. This includes basic foundational supplementation to compliment the food we eat and give you a complete nutrition program.
Are you eating 7-10 servings of fruits and veggies daily…? Are you eating deep sea salmon 3 times weekly…? Most people would have to answer no to that question, in addition it’s widely known that we don’t get what we need from the food we eat. Bottom line, foundational supplementation is a must to achieve a complete nutrition program and your best body!
So in review, before you can lose weight and get in shape there are two critical steps that must be complete. First, you must stop putting poison in your body and take the necessary steps to cleanse the body of all the toxins that you have built up over years of neglect. Second you must replenish the body with the vitamins, minerals, and healthy bacteria needed to restore balance to your operating system. If done correctly the result will be a new found energy!
Most people who think about losing weight or getting in shape simply don’t have the energy to even get up off the couch, and the thought of exercise seems impossible. All of that changes once we have cleansed the body and provided your system those essential building blocks.
Now armed with vibrant energy, you have the necessary confidence, determination, and motivation to take back your body and experience the quality of life you deserve!
