Hey everyone, I am Michael and I have been a serial “diet fiend” over the past 10 years.
During this period I have gained weight, lost weight, gained weight again…what seems like a billion cycles. I have tried just about every diet on the planet and although you probably wouldn’t call me overweight (definitely not now), there were times in my life where I had a good deal of extra “chub” if you know what I mean.
The reason I created this site was to help folks like yourself lose belly fat and achieve maximal health through your diet and exercise regimes. To do this, I am going to share my personal experiences with you and what I have discovered over the years through my own “trial and error” experiments.
I also ask that if I ever say anything that captures your interest, that you get involved within my site. I love to talk about dieting and health and if you have anything interesting that you want to share or any opinions of any of the content I have created on my site, please do speak up. I love feedback in every form.
So now to me…
I am currently 45 years old. According to a BMI calculator, I am defined as being “oveweight” at 6ft, 190lbs…but I have been up to 240lbs at one point in time. Although I didn’t feel “fat” at the time, I look back at pictures of me then and I think “geez, I look fat”.
To me weight is not important though, health is. You can be 100lbs and unhealthy and you can be 240lbs and very healthy, so the # of lbs (or stones or kgs) that you weigh is not the true litmus test. There are other measurements that you should be using to define your health, one of the most important being how you feel.
I have also tried just about every diet imaginable. Not because I never succeed at diets, but quite the contrary. I almost always succeed with them. I have will power, but I do tend to fall out and lose interest over time as most diets are not sustainable. That is why the term “diet” should not be associated with your journey to lose weight. Your “lifestyle” is a much better term and if you can achieve a lifestyle that is healthy, then you have the game mastered.
If you get a lifestyle that is one of health, your mental and physical state will be one of sheer awesomeness! I can assure you that when your body is healthy, your brain usually follows. That is because when you run your body on clean fuel and you give your body regular use, it runs efficiently and it is a happy system as a whole.
If you ever need any feedback or support regarding your health and exercise regime, I would be more than happy to connect. Simply leave your comment below and make sure you visit my site regularly as I am always updating it with the crazy “ideas” and “information” that I come across that I know you will find interesting.
Anyways, I wish you all the best with your dieting and thank you for dropping by!
