I believe it really depends on the type of calories you're consuming.

500 calories from processed foods is entirely different than whole foods.

Even if you converted 500 from one to the other people would notice a difference in how they feel.

It needs to be understood that processed foods are contaminated. Pure garbage, chemicals. Those chemicals are very addicting. Like nicotine.
People who start to eat whole foods usually feel light headed, possibly dizzy, nauseous, and weak.... These are Infact signs of withdrawal. But they are also good signs. Your body is being reminded how to use real food again. And generally after 7 days you begin to feel amazing!!!!

We are so deficient in vits/mins. Any little change for the good will be beneficial.

Another problem is people have become sooo completely disconnected from themselves they don't even recognize there's a problem. Not until you get a title from your doc do you accept you have issues. You become a 'Diabetic', you own 'high blood pressure', you own 'clogged arteries'. I say 'title' becomes people who have been diagnosed take such ownership over it, it becomes there 'excuse'

'oh I'm like this because of 'my diabetes'...'oh my thyroid is acting up'

The issue is not the disease..... The issue is you chosing to let it control your life. Stop!!!!

How many people realize wheats cause body inflammation?!? And no I'm not talking about celiac. I'm speaking of a chemical reaction in the body when wheat is ingested. That watery, bloated, spongey feeling that comes on.

You may even be surprised that what most people call 'Their arthritis....' is a chemical in their joints that came from consuming wheat. Generally attacking the knees and hips.
It can also cause labored breathing, groggy throats, Yeast infections.

Oh and BTW LADIES that same reaction also makes CELLULITE look WORSE!!!'

And of course we all know about salt and it's affects.... WHICH ALSO MAKES CELLULITE LOOK WORSE!!!!

And when it comes to exercise.... You don't need a gym membership. Again people have become sondisconnected that immediately they think gym.

Get uncomfortable!!!!!

If you're grabbing only a few things from the grocery use a basket. It starts getting heavy... Thats good!
Park further away. Take a flight of stairs. Become a clean freak at home. Making the beds, mopping, dusting...:. All burn calories.
Chose to stand instead of sit. Rearrange your house.

Whatever it is GET UNCOMFORTABLE....

Yes I agree to see a physician. But you don't need permission to clean your house, take a walk through your yard, stop eating processed foods. This is all everyday and common sense things.

And most importantly.... Listen to your bodies. Remember what exhaustion feels like. Remember what energy feels like. And recognize good pain over bad pain.

You don't need anyone but you.

Snickers or Apple....?
Watch TV or wash dishes....?
Eat 2 plates of pasta... Or just one with a lot of protein....?

You already know the answers. Just do it. You slack a bit. So what.... Just do it again. Ate a donut... Who cares.... Next time go for a carrot.

Stop complaining!!!! And stop losing!!!!!

Because you know something. WE ALL HAVE PROBLEMS!!!!!
And no wants to hear about yours.
Be the inspiration. Be the challenge. Be the goal.

And quit the pissing and moaning. If you feel this bad now how ya gonna be when you're 70 or 80. Assuming you make it that far.

Genetics
Fatty liver
Inflammation
Autoimmunity
Stress

Are all things that can cause type 2 diabetes.... In lean and healthy people. Most others develop diabetes type 2 from poor eating habits. High sugars, low water, serenity lifestyle, high fats.

Again, most people don't even accept they have a problem until they've been titled by the doc.
Thyroidism again is another Disease in which you need to monitor your lifestyle.

Yes your body and it's mechanics will be different when you're dealing with alignments but that's NO EXCUSE to use it as an excuse.

Diet and exercise(being movement, not just a gym membership) is almost always the top remedy in helping to deal with the symptoms.

Problem is people hear these 2 words and cringe.
'oh it's so hard'...'I'm too old now, I'm too fat now,I have a condition.'

The only condition these people have is weakness!

People who still pursue a healthy lifestyle, while dealing with these issues are so much stronger than the 25 year old who is healthy and fit.

It's called perspective. And if people think its hard now to get into shape and live to be healthy....
How much harder will it be when your legs are amputated, or you become blind, or are in a coma.....

Pretty damn hard!

But it's a personal choice. Eat healthy and live your life or stuff your face with poison and let us know each day how horrible you feel and bad your life is.

You disagree and you I'm mean????

That's the judgements I get for shedding some light and truth....

Wow. Sad. Really really sad.

But you know something.... It's totally ok. Because I'm good with who I am.

I need to drop 20lbs. And I ate half a loaf of banana bread for breakfast.

I'll also be doing a 10 km run today. So really it's not a big deal.
I cured my asthma through body recognition, diet and running. Haven't used a puffer in 8 years. At 27 I was diagnosed and was told I had the lung capacity of a 65 year old male who smokes!!!

Do you know what that feels like? Ever tried to breathe under water?? Or have a 200lb person sit on your chest.

Or my most favourite part was the coughing fits.... So bad my lips would turn blue and I'd be hugging the toilet while coughing and puking up wads of phlegm from my lungs.

No fn way..... I took control. And I got my life back!!!! Ran a half marathon. Ran a few road races. And now run to live. I will never go back to that again!!!

And the precious doc cans keep their title of asthmatic and keep their drugs.

So sure you people can judge me as harsh as you feel like. But I know who I am, what I've been through and I know exactly how to get to where I wanna go.

I'm so harsh and rude. I would be the one waiting for at that finish line. I would be the one to pick you up if you fell. I would be the one who would throw a party because you lost your first pound.

My guess is most of you don't have someone like me.

It's too bad.

You're assuming waaaaaaaaayyy too much.

What if the 500+ calories are not from processed foods? I still say, cutting that many calories from your diet at one time - regardless of how you feel or how many pounds overweight you are is really dangerous. Nobody that abuses their body is a dietician or a cardiac care specialist. That being said, you could be cutting good cholesterol, carbs and even necessary salts from your diet. Extreme dieting is dangerous and unwise. Just as you don't quit smoking by quitting cold turkey, caloric intake must be carefully thought out. Many fruits are high in sugar, and if you are hypo-glycemic, you need to watch out for certain fruits (oranges in particular). Also, careful of too much potassium - too much of a good thing can kill you.

Are talking about people who have dug themselves into a huge hole????

People who severely obese???

Because yes of course these people need to be unadvisory.

But how could you possibly say switching 500 cals of cookies and ice cream to 500 cals of fruits/veggies and protein would be a bad thing???

I'm sorry but that's a cop out.

You can't compare someone who is severely obese and consuming 4500 cals a day (who clearly could stand to drop their calorie intake) over some one who's a bit over weight and only needs to drop a few pounds.

500 calories is hugely relative. So yes I agree.... It COULD be dangerous. But someone who knows what they're doing. No really.

And extreme dieting is something entirely different again..... Which is where your concerns come from.

Really????

If I was gonna lie I'd say something like 20 km run.

10 km is nothing. It's just over an hour of running.

And that's only if you chose to do it in one round. You could always do a couple of breezy 5 km.

Wow. That comment just put a whole lot into perspective for me.

If i even decide i want to join my friends in the Marathon they signed up for.

42km is a long haul.

I'll probably just stick to my 10km leisure runs.

It's fun you guys....!!! I swear to god. If you just gave it a chance. You wouldn't regret it.... And yeeessss of course go get some medical clearance.

Wouldn't want you laid out on the road thinking you're having a damn heart attack. When it's just you intercostal muscles getting worked for the first time in god knows how long!!

I'm not arrogant. I'm not ignorant. And I'm not unsympathetic.

I get super stoked when someone picks up some sort of physical activity.

But i do have a very very low tolerance to excuses. And I include myself in that.

Reasons are only reasons for so long and than they become an excuse.
