Exercise for the Elderly
Yeah, that’s me.
Courtesy of Tom Venuto’s Super Lean. It covers dropping your body fat percentage very low, breaking through plateaus, and losing the last stubborn, will-not-budge 10 pounds.
One that works really well for me and for my clients is 90% compliance. I give you a list of clean foods like the ones that I mentioned before that include high nutrient density foods with all the essentials and I say, “Eat these 90% of the time. The other 10% of the time, eat whatever you want.”
If you look at it from this perspective, then you can see that there’s no such thing as forbidden foods. For most people, in the long run, any diet that gives you flexibility is going to work better than a diet that demands 100% “clean eating.” This is not only my personal belief, it’salso well supported in the clinical nutrition and behavioral psychology journals.
90% compliance is what got me through the plateau that had me hung up for months. I know that it is not what will work if your goal is to hit the stage in hooker heels and lot’s o’ bling, and KUDOS to you if that’s your goal, but it’s not exactly for moi.
I lost the stubborn 25 pounds just before my cervical discs went all herniated on me, which gave me the perfect excuse to quit working out. And I did. So here I sit, with roughly
20 25 pounds left to lose.
I am looking in to Turbulence Training today. It seems to be doing Skwigg’s body good. 🙂
