I've had nearly 500 new people join the elimination diet newsletter this week, taking my total readership to well over 24,000 people, indicating that not only is the diet itself growing in popularity but that people are (finally) starting to come out of their winter mode and starting to think about getting into shape for spring and summer.
About time too!
But whilst it's great that so many of you are looking to take action at the moment, I also wanted to remind you that getting great results is not just about diet.
Sure, that's an important part and certainly this diet is extremely effective at getting great results but, as you know, there's far more to dramatically changing your body in a short period of time.
For a start there's the dreaded E-word.
It's an important part of the equation and, whilst I'd love to tell you otherwise, you simply cannot get the results you're looking for without including a little of it every day.
It doesn't have to be a lot, it doesn't have to take all the time in the world, it just requires that you do it consistently and with the right intensity to get results.
And you don't need a lot of equipment, you don't need to join a gym and you don't even need to hire an expensive trainer like me.
You just have to get off your butt and do something.
That's how simple it is!
In fact, you don't even need to leave your living room or miss a single minute of TV.
Try this workout.
I call it the get your lazy butt off the couch workout : )
1. Pick 3 or 4 exercises, say, a pushup, a squat, and abdominal curl and a lunge (though it could be any others too)
2. Every time an advertisement comes on TV, get off of your couch, do 10 of each and then sit back down.
Don't tell me you can't do that?!
Think about it, an advertisement comes on every 15-20 mins (well, here in the UK anyway) so you'll have done 30-40 reps over the course of an hour.
That's probably a lot more than many of my readers are doing at the moment, doesn't cost a penny and takes no time out of your day whatsoever. I mean heck, you can even still watch your favorite TV show.
If you're a little fitter and you're worried that this won't provide enough of a challenge then try this instead:
1. Pick the same 3-4 exercises.
2. Whenever an advertisement comes on, get your butt off the couch, perform 10 of one, move to the next and the next, and the next and continue the cicuit until the adverts are finished (on average 3 mins).
I guaranteed you that you'll get an amazing workout if you do this just once. Do it throughout the evening and you'll be stunned at how much work you've done.
So, there you go, the ultimate lazy person's guide to working out.
Now what's your excuse? : )
