While you ponder on that question for a second I’m going to tell you a quick story, then give you the best piece of fitness advice I can give.
The context of the story will make sense after you hear my answer…
I joined the Army when I was 24.
Initially, I thought I wanted to be a Navy SEAL (I blame Hollywood).
As it turns out, I can swim, but not that well.
So I decided to pursue a job that was still packed with action and danger, but more land (and air) based, vs. in the water.
When I initially told some of my people what I intended to do, they literally laughed in my face.
Can you believe that?
Trust me, there were A LOT of haters trying to bring me down.
A lot of people spent a great deal of their own time, energy, and effort trying to get me to second guess myself and change my mind.
They were like crabs sitting in the bottom of bucket who see their buddy making a daring climb for freedom, and when he’s just about there, they reach up with their crabby legs and yank him back into the abyss.
Anyway, six months after I decided I was going to the join the Army and go to Ranger selection, I was being dropped off at the Fort Benning School of Boys for day 1 of infantry basic training.
And, a few months after that I made my dream become a reality when I graduated from Ranger Selection in class 9-13 (September of 2013).
But that vision, my dream, only became a reality because of action.
However, to this day (almost 5 years later) I still have friends who are my age, telling me they are going to join the military and do this, that, and the third.
The problem is, they’ve been talking that same talk for well over half a decade now, but have taken exactly ZERO action toward making that goal a reality.
That’s why they’ll forever be outsiders looking in on a world they can only fantasize about.
The Best Fitness Advice For Weight Loss
So, looping back around, the answer to the question of “What is the best fitness advice for weight loss” is this:
#1. Start taking immediate action toward your goal.
#2. Ruthlessly curate your inner circle.
But, that brings me to the point of this story…
Consuming every single piece of weight loss literature, blog post, advice from “gurus”…etc, but taking no action, is the fastest way to go no where/ see no results.
Once you get started, the finer details will work themselves out. Questions will arise that need to get answered.
And, you can answer them in time.
However, you simply need to get started by taking immediate action.
But once you get started on your weight loss journey, you’ll also need to be careful who you give your time and energy too. There will undoubtedly be haters. Like crabs in a bucket, people will try their hardest pull you back down to their level; instead of raising you up on their shoulders.
Don’t let them.
You can do that by: ignoring them and then crossing them off the list of people you associate with.
Seriously, your time is too valuable to waste hanging out with haters.
And, if you are serious about achieving your weight loss goal, you MUST ruthlessly curate your inner circle. This really isn’t negotiable.
