How To Lose Weight Fast Without Doing Any Exercise

How To Lose Weight Fast Without Doing Any Exercise

Losing weight is one of those topics that someone you know is always mentioning. Losing weight can be an uphill battle, or one plagued by yo-yo diets that cause you to lose weight fast, only to later put it back on even faster.

You can lose weight fast without doing any exercise.

It is commonly thought that calories control everything in terms of weight loss. Here is the shocker: calories do not matter; it is all based upon your environment and how well energy flows in your body.

Our bodies are made up of predominately water, and water conducts energy. However, the environment that we live in today has changed from 100 years ago. Today, we have all sorts of electronic devices and electromagnetic forces that affect how the energy is conducted through our bodies.

So what does this mean for you if you want to lose weight?

It means that we have to eat more whole foods with real ingredients, drink high quality non-fluoridated water, and make sure that we are minding light cycles and circadian biology.

1.  Start Your Morning Off Right

You have always heard that breakfast is your most important meal, which is true. Breakfast starts to get your leptin back in check in your brain. Leptin is the key hormone for appetite, energy expenditure, and all hormonal functions in your body. If you are leptin resistant (i.e. overweight), then you more than likely have a series of hormonal problems at play, which can all be fixed by getting leptin in check.

Eat a high protein breakfast (50 grams) of fish and/or meat within 30 minutes of waking alongside plenty of fat (coconut oil, bacon, duck fat, butter, avocado, olive oil).

2.  Continue to Eat Seasonal “Real” Food

Real food is exactly what is sounds like. It has ingredients that you understand, and it is currently growing in your area right now. These foods include vegetables (eat low carbohydrate vegetables and you will stay full longer) and fruits. Looking for recipes? Check out Civilized Caveman Cooking.

Make sure that you are eating plenty of high quality seafood and grass-fed meats.

3. Stay Away from Grains, Dairy, and Added Sugars

This includes all gluten products, breads, pastries, rice, cereals, whole grains. Added sugars equal carbohydrates, too. Food that is higher in carbohydrates elicits an inflammation response in your body causing your body to not lose any weight. Dairy can also cause inflammation.

4.  Eat Your Last Meal At Least 4 Hours Before Bed

Remember your late night snacking? It’s gone. Giving yourself plenty of time to eat before bed will allow your body to digest food and your hormones to get in balance in your brain. It may be hard, but isn’t living life something that you want to do?

5.  Turn Off the Lights at Night

Artificial light allows us to do so much, but also hurts us because it makes it more difficult for our brains to tell time (the difference between night and day), which causes insulin resistance and all sorts of other health problems. When it is dark outside, it should be dark inside. At night, transition from using blue and white lights to using amber-colored lighting and candles. It makes all the difference and will also help you be able to sleep through the night. It’s known in the medical and science community as “circadian biology.”

6.  Do NOT Snack

Eat three meals a day. You may get to the point where you are not hungry for lunch, which is fine, but do not skip breakfast. If you seem to get hungry, make sure that you eat more fat at your next meal. These fats include avocados, bacon, duck fat, butter, coconut oil.

Fat is your friend and does not make you get fat.

7.  Drink TONS of Spring Water or Reverse Osmosis Water

Water is key to making sure your body continues to conduct energy. The type of water that you drink matters. Fluoridated water (most tap water in the United States contains fluoride) actually destroys the blood barrier in the brain, causing more havoc on our bodies and allowing toxins to get into the brain. Spring water and reverse osmosis water from a non-fluoridated source are what you should be drinking. Drink at least 2.5 liters a day. The more your are around electronics, the more water you should drink.

8. Go Outside and See the Sun

The sun is actually good for us. It provides us with more energy in our bodies. The sun’s light is transferred into photons, which our bodies read as electrons (i.e. energy). The more energy you have, the less inflammation you have, the more weight you lose, and the better you feel.

*Bonus*: If you want to speed up your weight loss, start doing cold thermogenesis. This involves cooling down your body in order to save its energy and not lose it to your environment, and can be accomplished by taking ice baths. Be careful, and watch out for your skin temperature. If your skin starts to get white, it’s time to get out of the cold water.

Exercise is good for you; however, it is not the key factor when you are trying to lose weight. It is all based on the energy equation. The more energy that you have, the healthier you will be.

If you are tired of trying every other diet under the sun only to be left disappointed, this information should help. It’s not about the calories; it’s about the energy. I follow this protocol myself and have transformed my health over the past 8 months. It will make you feel the best that you have ever felt in your life.

How to Overcome Boredom

How to Overcome Boredom

Have you ever been bored? Restless? Fidgety? In need of some inspiration?

I have a theory on boredom. I believe that the rate of boredom has increased alongside the pace of technology.

If you think about it, technology has provided us with mobile phones, laptops, Ipads, device after device – all to ultimately fix one problem: boredom.

What is Boredom?

We have become a global nation that feeds on entertainment. We associate ‘living’ with ‘doing’. People now do not know how to sit still, and we feel guilty when we are not doing anything. Today, inactivity has become the ultimate sin.

You might not realize it, but boredom stimulates a form of anxiety and stress. It evokes an emotional state that creates frustration and feeds procrastination.

It’s a desire to be ‘doing something’ or to be ‘entertained’ – it’s a desire for sensory stimulation. What it boils down to is a lack of focus.

If you think about those times when you’re bored, it’s usually because you did not know what to do. So, indecision also plays a big part.

When we are focused on what’s important to us and what we want to achieve, it’s pretty hard to be bored. So, one answer to boredom is to become focused on what you want.

Sometimes It’s Good to Be Bored

If boredom is a desire for sensory stimulation – then what’s the opposite of that? To be content with no stimulation – in other words – to enjoy stillness.

Sometimes, it’s not boredom itself that causes the frustration but the resistance to doing nothing.

Think about it. What would happen if you were to ‘let go’ of the desire to be entertained? You wouldn’t be bored anymore, and you will feel more relaxed!

In my experience, it’s often the most obvious, simplistic solutions that are the most powerful in life. So, when you’re bored, the easiest way to combat this is to enjoy it.

It may sound weird but think of ‘boredom’ as a form of ‘relaxation’. It’s a break from the constant stimulation that 21st-century living provides – constant TVs, mobile phones, radios, internet, emails, phone calls, etc.

Who knows, maybe ‘boredom’ is actually good for us?

Next time you’re ‘feeling bored’ instead of feeding the frustration by frantically looking for something to do, maybe you can sit back, relax, and savor the feeling of having nothing to do.

In this article, I’ll share with you my 3-step strategy on how to overcome boredom.

3-Step Strategy to Overcome Boredom

1. Get Focused

Instead of chasing sensory stimulation at random, focus on what’s really important to you. Focusing on something important helps prevent boredom because it forces you to utilize your time productively.

You should ask yourself: what would make good use of your time? What could you be doing that would contribute to your major goals in life?

Here are a few ideas:

  • Spend some time in quiet contemplation considering what’s important to you.
  • Start that creative project you’ve been talking about for the last few weeks.
  • Brainstorm: think of some ideas for new innovative products or businesses.

2. Kill Procrastination

Boredom is useful in some ways because it gives you the energy and time to do things. It is only a problem if you let it. But if you use it to motivate yourself to be productive, then you can more easily overcome boredom.

So, the next time you’re bored, why not put this good energy to use by ticking off those things that you have been meaning to get done but have been too busy to finish? This also presents a great time for you to clear your to-do list.

Here are some ideas:

  • Do some exercise.
  • Read a book.
  • Learn something new.
  • Call a friend.
  • Get creative (draw, paint, sculpt, create music, write).
  • Do a spring cleaning.
  • Wash the car.
  • Renovate the house.
  • Re-arrange the furniture.
  • Write your shopping list.
  • Water the plants.
  • Walk the dog.
  • Sort out your mail & email.
  • De-clutter (clear out that wardrobe).

3. Enjoy Boredom

If none of the above solutions work, then you can try a different approach. Don’t give in to boredom and instead choose to enjoy it. This doesn’t mean allowing yourself to waste your time being bored. Instead, think of it as your time to relax and re-energize, which will help you be more productive the next time you work.

Contrary to popular belief, we don’t need to be constantly doing things to be productive. In fact, research has shown that people are more productive when they take periods of rest to recharge.[1] Taking breaks once in a while helps boost your performance and can help make you feel more motivated.

So, take some time to relax. You never know, you might even like it.

Final Thoughts

Learning how to overcome boredom may be difficult at the beginning, but it can be easier if you make use of some techniques. You can start with my 3-step strategy on how to overcome boredom and work your way from there. So, ready your mind and make use of these tips, and you will be overcoming boredom in no time.
