If you haven’t checked out the Hero’s Journey interval training program yet, why not? Training or working out doesn’t have to be boring or something you have to do, it should be something you want to do. Add these two to the mix: the Legolas Workout or the Shieldmaiden Workout or any of the other dozens of themed workouts at Darbee.com. Training, however, is only half of the equation.
The other half is nutrition. Sure, working out out will reduce the weight, just as only “dieting” will, but focusing on only one makes long-term maintenance difficult and gains often temporary. If you have decided on a commitment to better health, you also have to commit to some studying. Knowledge has many benefits for your lifestyle change, such as:
- Keeping you away from fad diets, bogus products and scams.
- Allowing you to be safe and uninjured in your training.
- The realization that the foods that your body is designed for are neither boring or tasteless (i.e. no more rice cakes and iceberg lettuce).
- Knowing what poor foods are, why they are poor, and what they do to you, makes it easier to walk right by them.
- There is a difference between “being on a diet” and having a diet.
- New information is always coming out, but the foundations of health an nutrition have been largely unchanged since the dawn of mankind.
- It really isn’t rocket science, and getting yourself networked and doing your homework will build a foundation for your goals.
