You wake up and just want to stay in bed. You don’t want to get up and go to the gym. You don’t want to go outside and run. But you’ve got to do something.
You look in the mirror and see someone who is heading for a heart attack. You cringe when you think about going to the beach or the pool where you’ll have to take your shirt off.
You hate walking places with friends because you’re always the one out of breath. You don’t go to fairs, carnivals, or outdoor events because the rides have weight limits. And you weigh too much.
You can’t wear the best clothes and stay current with fashions because you’re overweight and Abercrombie, Tommy Hilfiger, and Ralph Lauren don’t make your size.
But you deal with it all.
It’s frustrating when you think of all the things you can’t do. But at the same time you stay in the rut and can’t seem to get out of.
If You Keep Dong What You’ve Always Done
You’ll continue to get what you’ve always gotten if you do nothing. In fact, it will probably get worse. Your health will continue toward failure. You can look forward to a nice week long stay in a hospital (or longer) if you don’t change your ways. It’s just the way things are.
You probably have looked at your health and figured… that’s how you’ll always be. Then you get into a health mode and want to do something about it.
Then you fall back into being resigned about your weight loss. You’re resigned about the things you can’t do in life. You’re resigned about not being able to wear ‘normal’ size clothes.
But you have the power to change all that.
Here Are Just A Few Solutions Available To You (Some Good, Some Not So Good)
You can take weight loss pills. But most of them are poisonous and remind you to not take longer than a certain period of time. I know I’ve tried them. They worked for a while but never addressed the root cause. Once you come off the pills there is nothing to keep you from gaining weight back. It’s a horrible way to go. Personally, I don’t believe in the weight loss pill route. They’re just bad in too many ways.
You can go on a fad diet. Look, if you’re looking to drop weight quick and you don’t care if it comes back when the fad diet is over, then go for it. But I would venture to say that no one can stay on these fad diets for any length of time. One of them has you counting calories. Another one has you counting carbs. Yet another one has you using cards to keep track of your serving sizes. You can do all of that on your own with a little common sense. You definitely don’t need to throw your hard earned money away on something that is hear now gone later.
You can follow the celebrities on TV and try one of the “No Fail” solutions. Sure, the celebrities jump on TV, the radio, or in magazines and tout how they’ve lost weight with this amazing device, program, or pill. Does it ever occur to you that they are being paid to say that. They’re being paid large amounts of money to pitch you that item. If you’re interested, try it but I’ll bet it falls to the side just like the fad diet products.
So what should you do?
Take Matters Into Your Own Hands
For guys over 40 who want to lose weight, I recommend you get out there and exercise. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is one of the best and most effective ways to get the exercise you need and lose weight fast. It doesn’t matter if you’re over 40 or over 50. It works.
There are tons of scientific studies that prove the effectiveness of this type of training. But it seems like only a few people know about it. It allows you to do less workout in terms of time but get more bang for your buck.
High Intensity Interval training not only builds strength and flexibility it also builds cardiovascular health. One of the best weight loss programs that accomplishes all of these is the Insanity 60 Day Workout Program.
It’s built on HIIT training.
It’s highly effective and works for men over 40. All you have to do is go check out the reviews on Amazon.
Imagine looking back after 60 days knowing that getting this program was the best decision you’ve made all year. You’re body has changed. Your breathing is not labored. Your confidence is high. You look and feel better than you ever have before. In fact you look forward to going to the beach or the pool to strip off your shirt and show off your new body.
Believe me, Insanity is the fastest, most healthy method I’ve ever seen for men over 40 to lose those extra pounds. Yes, it will be intense but it will get you the results you want.
I urge you to try it.
