It seems as though all the pundits, gurus, and enthusiasts alike strongly insist that in order lose weight, get lean, and get healthy and fit, we must adopt a whole new “health and fitness lifestyle.”
But there are actually some major problems with that:
- The underhanded implication is that this new “health and fitness lifestyle” must displace your lifestyle.
- Most people don’t want to completely overhaul their entire lifestyle in order to get healthy and fit. Or they simply can’t.
- The *actual* amount of effort that it takes to lose fat and get fit is, in all honestly, nowhere near the amount of effort that an entire new lifestyle would seemingly imply.
If something takes a lot of time and effort but doesn’t produce results, people are much less likely to do it. Basic common sense.
…yet this is exactly the bizarre norm that the so called “health and fitness lifestyle” has become:
- We’re utterly inundated with health information overload, and left totally confused about what’s actually important.
- We’re resigned to indiscriminately trying endless health fads, which never seem to actually work.
- We vigorously spin our wheels with a lot of effort, seemingly dedicating our lives to “the lifestyle,” yet don’t actually get any results to show for it.
Why are so many people not motivated enough to get healthy and fit? It’s a central and purportedly esoteric question in the mainstream health and fitness discussion. But, there are two obvious yet often underlooked “motivational” truths:
- If something is simpler and easier, you’re more likely to actually do it, and stick with it.
- Even if you could do extra, unnecessary work… why on earth would you want to?
Considering that, why not reject the all immersive and onerous Health and Fitness Lifestyle™ and embrace efficiency as a contrary? Instead of dedicating every facet of your life to health and fitness, learn how to spend as absolutely little time and effort as possible on achieving – and maintaining – health and fitness:
- Beat information overload and learn what actually makes enough of a difference to be worth worrying about.
- Learn how to make doing that practically fit with your lifestyle.
- Stop worrying about anything else, stop wasting time and energy, and get back to, speaking which, what’s actually important: living your lifestyle.
This site is an (anti) health and fitness blog with the purpose of showing people how to do exactly that. Because I believe deep in my heart that health and fitness can, and should, be achievable by anyone, not just those who can dedicate their entire lives to it.
