Hey family, I hope everyone had a great week. Before we get into this week’s updates I want to talk to you about something that has really hit home this week. As some of you know Sije Jamie and myself have been doing Intermittent Fasting also known as the IF diet.
Over the years I tried all types of diet schemes and none of them seemed to work well for me because I was always hungry. About 10 years ago I lost a ton of weight I went from 228 to 178 and held that weight for several years. Part of my success at that time was I was going to bed around 9:00 to 10:00 I was waking up at 4:30 exercising at 5:00 am then got started working having lunch around 12:30. What I didn’t realize then was I sorta was doing the IF diet I just didn’t realize that was what I was doing.
For years I was taught that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So while I lost weight I thought I was doing myself more harm in the long run than I was doing good. Even when I was in college I took a health a wellness course where my teacher was teaching how important breakfast was. Even most health professionals will tell you how important breakfast is.
You will also read about eating small meals throughout the day.
In my case, all that information was wrong. I knew my body did better when I was in a intermittent fasting state, however I ignored what I felt and listened to the advice of ‘health professionals’. Well I am officially doing Intermitted Fasting for a month and I have to tell you I feel great!
As of this writing, I am not sure how much I have lost, but I can tell you that I feel a lot better and my body composition is changing. I also feel emotionally better because I have a term I can use for what I am doing. Interestingly enough it’s only been the past 2 years that I have heard anything about the IF diet. I don’t know exactly why that is, but if this was taught to me when I was in school, I know that I wouldn’t be dealing with weight issues today.
The moral of the story is you really are never too old to learn new things. It’s never too late to change course. Finally the best time to start something is right now. Later this weekend Sije Jamie and myself are going to do a Podcast on our Intermittent Fasting up to this point. We will share more of our journey with you in our next podcast.
Speaking of the misconception of being too old, we get asked this all the time :
Am I too old to start learning Kung Fu online?
The answer is you are never too old to better yourself. In fact constantly striving to do more and be more is a recipe for a happy healthy long life.
In other news…
We had a great member’s webinar today. Lots of questions sent in and asked on the webinar! Per usual there was an interesting and even entertaining amount of questions. Jamie just emailed Zoom our webinar platform to see if we can find out why some of our videos are recording in 720p HD and others in only 360p…. Like today’s… Our setting and everything have been the same each time and the HD setting turned on but it’s like rolling the dice. Not cool. Sorry for the less that stellar quality of viewing. Thankfully it doesn’t detract from the message though!
