I am sure you have read Stephen Coveys Book, First Things First.
There is a great analogy he uses of an empty jar which he proceeds to fill with big rocks, then pebbles, then sand and finally water.
People thought the jar was full each time until he managed to fit more stuff in it.
The point of the story was that you will not sort out the BIG ROCKS if you do not put them into the jar.
Now, what does this have to do with weight loss and fitness?
Well, most people I know are focusing on the small things and missing the big picture items.
People are focusing on reducing their carbs without actually realising that they have to reduce their overall calories to be successful at weight loss. It doesn't matter if it is carbs, fat or protein.
People are focusing on whether one food is good or bad without giving any thought to how their diet has to fit in with their lives or not and whether they can stick to it.
People are focusing on what percentage of your max heart rate burns the most fat without working on getting up a regular sweat and putting a hard shift in every other day and staying consistent with their exercise.
People are waiting for everything to be perfect before they start to get fit. When was the last time your life was quiet and perfect in order to start something healthy?
Forget about the small details.
Forget about whether running is better than weights for weight loss or apples are better than bananas for blood sugar control etc.
Get the big rocks in.
Get exercising daily.
Eat healthy on a consistent basis.
Be under you calorie intake if you want to lose weight.
Eat more than you need if you want to build muscle.
Drop all your fancy tech and get moving on a regular basis and challenge yourself.
Take care of the big picture items first.
