If you think of exercise as a 60-minute commitment 3 times a week at the gym you're missing the point completely. If you think that going on a diet has something to do with nutrition you don't see the forest through the trees. It is a lifestyle. I know it sounds cliche but you have to find things you love to do.
If I could give one tip for people - it's not an exercise or nutrition regimen. It's to walk your talk and believe in yourself because at the end of the day the dumbbell and diet don't get you in shape. It's your accountability to your word.
The more I read and watched about the meat industry the more determined I became to keep meat out of my diet. The things I saw in slaughterhouse exposes made me feel sick and I refused to just ignore what I now knew.
I am involved in Greenpeace. And I just recently completely switched my diet over to near-veganism. So you try to do little things that you can. I recycle every single day. Every single thing in my house that can be recycled is.
Let me pose you a question. Can farm-raised salmon be organic when its feed has nothing to do with its natural diet even if the feed itself is supposedly organic and the fish themselves are packed tightly in pens swimming in their own filth?
My goal? To test out every diet and exercise regimen on planet earth and figure out which work best. I sweated I cooked I learned to pole dance. In the end I lost weight lowered my cholesterol and doubled my energy level. I feel better than I ever have.
