Will You Go On A Diet, or Will You Change Your Life?

It’s New Year’s Day again—which means it’s time to resolve to lose a bunch of weight and get in shape.

Again.

Before you commit to the latest diet, cleanse, detox, or “one weird trick”, though, ask yourself a simple question:

Is this something I can do for the rest of my life?

To understand why this is important, practice reading these paragraphs out loud without laughing:

  • “Before putting anything in my mouth, I will carefully research its value in “calories”, “points”, or “blocks”. Then I will check this value against the list I’ve kept of everything else I ate today, to make sure I have enough free “calories”, “points”, or “blocks” to eat it. Then I will add it to the list. I will do this for every meal and snack, every day, without fail, until I die.”

  • “Life without beef, pork, eggs, or butter will be totally fulfilling. I won’t ever miss bacon, prime rib, or a loaded baked potato. Fat-free sour cream and non-dairy cheese taste exactly like the real thing. I love lentils.

  • “I can pedal a bicycle that goes nowhere for 40 minutes a day, week after week, month after month. This is the best and most productive use of my time.”

Has it suddenly become obvious why your New Year’s resolutions never seem to survive the change of seasons?

Lose A Bit Of Belly Fat Every Day With This One Weird Trick!

Eat like a predator, not like prey.

Yes, that’s a link. Click it.

You don’t need to buy any books, join any gyms, or spend any money on anything but food. If we needed to read an entire book to learn how to eat, our ancestors would have starved to death millions of years ago.

It’s easy. When I eat like a predator, I feel stronger. Sharper. Quicker. More alive. I like that.

When I eat like prey, I slow down. I lose my edge. I become weak, irritable, and vulnerable. I don’t like that.

Here it is again. Eat like a predator. Click it.

Live in freedom, live in beauty.

Interview: J. Stanton on the “Everyday Paleo Life and Fitness” Podcast with Jason Seib

I recently recorded a podcast with Jason Seib of Everyday Paleo Life and Fitness and Clackamas Physical Conditioning…and it’s just been posted today! For those who have already listened to my other interviews, this one covers a completely different range of topics—including how I got started with paleonutrition, my philosophy of research and writing, three different studies showing why there is no such thing as a “calorie”, my basic four-point weight-loss plan for beginners, sustainable motivation for diet and life changes, and much more!

We cover a lot of ground, so put on your thinking cap and check out Episode 36 of the Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness Podcast here, at eplifefit.com. (You can also get it from their iTunes store: it’s the episode dated 5/7/13.)

Live in freedom, live in beauty.
