Took some getting used to… but being more careful now about what I’m eating post-op makes me happier. I’m much more aware now of nutrition and what certain food can do to your body. Thoughts?

As much as I talk about what I miss eating from before surgery, I know that the body I have now is noticeably healthier and stronger. No regrets about what I now say no to!

That’s cool to hear, Hanneman. I’m even wondering if with my progress and what I’ve learned about healthy eating… maybe I could even be a kind of health coach someday.

Hey LGordon, not a bad idea, and maybe you should look into it – could be something part-time? I have no clue on certifications, etc., for health coaching/consulting. In any case, wishing you well!

A diet that REALLY works is one where you eat foods that every one of the trillions of cells in your body is looking for and can use.

When you do this, your body will lose weight because it will not have a need to create extra fat or hold on to it any longer.

The best part about this is that if you are not a fan of exercise, you absolutely do not have to do any.

*** NOTE ***

Exercise is so great for your health. I encourage exercise anytime you can and want to do it. And yes, technically if you expend more calories than you take in you CAN lose weight. But will you? Is it easy? Is it feasible for long term success?

Can you eat ANYTHING and sweat off the fat?

Not really.

People will tell you differently though. They will argue thermodynamics and tell you that weight loss is so simple and all you have to do is some simple math.

But the real fact is that the human body is insanely complex, and sweating off fat is really not efficient and it is definitely not easy. If it were as simple as cutting calories, wouldn’t it be easier to just go to the gym for 30 minutes a day and lose weight?

I have written a few posts that explain some of this. This one explains how counting calories alone is just not any fun –> https://realweighttraining.com/sample-3500-calorie-bodybuilding-diet
