A lot of people are looking for a diet to thrive and stay with a beautiful body.
Many people buy magazines, pharmaceuticals, differentiated foods, gym equipment and medical and nutrition services just to lose weight.
Weight loss is the main concern of a huge number of people, especially greater (I think) in women.
I see and I feel that a lot of people want to lose weight and do many things to lose weight, that’s fine, a matter of health and aesthetics.
Did you know that lean women are more likely to marry rich men (useless statistics)?
Yes, but we know that’s not why they want just to get thin.
Have you noticed that many more people want to lose weight than getting rich? Or just do not even think about getting rich and just want to lose weight?
Losing weight can be very challenging for a lot of people, one thing they often fail, just because they do not follow a plan, do not have a constant DISCIPLINE, have not PERSEVERED in mindset change and in eating behavior. It is the same thing about accumulating wealth (getting rich), it takes discipline, time, patience, persistence, commitment and contributes firmly to the progress of the project.
It’s very common for us to see those before-and-after photos like this:
Look that! Someone else, right? And how beautiful she looked.
Talking about weight, you will find millions of people who have gone through the above process, become more beautiful and happy, everyone has a bit to contribute with their tactics, what they ate, what they did, the books they read, who helped them, where Sought help and more. Just get a good set of these people, read their stories, study a little of the subject, and commit to the outcome that you can probably get where they came from.
But what about wealth?
Do you see the people out there talking about the “before and after”?
It is much more difficult, first because the Brazilian does not have the culture to talk about money, about serious investments (but when it is Herbalife it becomes a commotion), about behavior change and about finally getting where it arrived.
It takes humility to listen.
I’ve always loved biographies and non-fiction books, you learn a lot from others, real lessons from real people, some of success and some from others, but always with good teachings to go through.
So if you google “diet to lose weight” you will see millions of results, pages, blogs and everything. If you put “how to get rich” will also find a lot, unfortunately most will be people wanting to sell you some product, offer, book, course, “tip” etc and etc, usually people WANTING TO BE RICH TEACHING YOU HOW TO BE RICH, but they are people maybe even with less money or income than you.
And if a BIG FAT BOY came to offer you a diet course to lose weight, what would you think?
Do you know what Warren Buffet talks about Wall Street analysts? “That’s people riding subway wanting to give investment advice to people who drives Rolls-Royce.”
Another thing he says is, “Every time a guy comes to offer me an investment and teaches me a lot of things I ask him to see the last 10 years of his income tax,” they all deny.
As a finance blogger and seeing the small niche of blogs and websites talking about finances and the process of enriching I come here to give my small contribution.
The issue of diet is discipline, consistency, change of thinking, focus on the process, optimism, overcoming and keeping the plan while it is working, without sabotage or shortcuts, without excuses, and without remorse.
Both the diet to lose weight has its general principles, which I call “core” and have the “little trendings”. The parallel is very easy to do, just look at the “little trendings” to lose weight:
“Tea Diet, Banana Diet, 15 Days Diet, Aloe Diet, Protein Diet, Vegetables Diet, Herbalife, Miojo Diet, Gluten Diet” etc etc etc … interesting is that no one can follow that for years to the thread to keep the shape and not continue to lose weight or otherwise sabotage the plan and go to the pizza carter and screw it all up. ”
So what are the general principles of all this: FOCUS, DEDICATION, WAIT, PATIENCE, DISCIPLINE, PERSISTENCE, AND INTELLIGENCE.
Not just to get rich or skinny, but to whatever you want to get in the future and if you really want to.
Almost everyone knows what to do to lose weight, but does not lose weight. Because? Because they do not follow A PLAN.
Want a result? MAKE A PLAN, FOLLOW THE PLAN.
It sounds simple, but it is not. Just six words to change your life.
Brazilian needs to learn to focus on things and get rid of the useless noises, distractions, and obstacles that appear to take the time of your day and your attention.
Want to lose weight?
Gain muscle. A better alternative, more muscles, more calorie burning and more metabolism. Avoid all the cardio stuff from academies and so on, walk, run, exercise bike. None of this will be necessary, just heavy weight and eat well, you lose weight.
What to eat?
Things not processed by the industry for the most part. If it’s labeled and processed it’s bad for you. The more natural it gets in your mouth the better. Like a carrot, a broccoli, a meat, an egg, a sweet potato, a chicken, a fruit.
Juice from fruits, soft drinks and etc … caloric drinks, only NO. You will not lose weight by drinking calories. And neither eating bread, pasta, pizza, heavy sauces, sugar (ANYTHING SWEET) that has sugar will make you lose weight.
It is much easier NOT to swallow calories than to get rid of them.
It’s like money. IT IS MUCH MORE EASY NOT TO SPEND MONEY THAN TO WIN. OBVIOUS!
The invoice of my card gives R$ 5000.00 (U$1500) per month, could give 10 or 15 thousand, or even R$ 20 thousand, but you can not! And there are people just like me! So where did I put the secret? DO NOT SPEND!
Do not complicate your life more than it already is. Avoid buying useless things, which are pretty much all you have to sell around.
HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT? DO NOT DRINK CALORIES, OR DRINK, DO NOT EAT INDUSTRIALIZED GARBAGE.
This is an excellent start. Can you? Your drink is only water, cheap and almost free.
HOW TO BE RICH?
DO NOT SPEND YOUR SWEATY MONEY WITH BULLSHITS OR THINGS, IDIOT OBJECTS AND LUXURY BRANDS WHEREVER (restaurant, car, clothing, makeup, electronics, expensive places, expensive travel, etc …)
Who is fat and wants to stay thin HAVE TO PAY THE PRICE.
Who is poor and wants to get rich MUST PAY THE PRICE.
The illusion of idiot is that it will find a shortcut, he is smart it will find a way to get there, doing less and dedicating LESS than the others, DO NOT GO!
Shortcut to get rich only lottery, inheritance or a marriage with a rich (but technically you are not the rich and you can stop being after you separate, in addition, rich riches most often marry other rich).
Shortcut to slimming? Well, very difficult, maybe a serious illness that makes you lose about 40kg at a time is the case, but this is not a shortcut but a fall from a cliff and you can even die if it is too high.
Cool Frugal, but is that all?
You think it’s too little?
Do you want magic formula?
TWO PERCENT PER MONTH?
If there was such a formula, why would anyone give it to you?
If it were simple because most would not get there?
By the way, do most people have the discipline to put themselves to something?
There is not. So the results of the majority will always be mediocre, picking up any civilization at any place and time, most have always been the most unruly for anything. This is natural of the human being, living in the average and not wanting to stand out.
Maybe because of fear, or because of the culture, or because of hopelessness, what I really think I do not have is pure and complete DISABILITY, incapacity even who has it is who has very serious mental illness that affects cognition severely, alone.
The rich and the poor dwell within you. Let your rich self-flourish. You might think it’s a joke for a guy to talk like this “it’s a matter of mentality” (I thought it was a joke one day) but it’s not.
When you are poor, you justify yourself and make excuses like:
“This one had the help of his father, or of the college, or of the grandfather, or of the friends, or of the wife” … I do not know.
“This one was lucky, this one is a thief, he hit his friends there, he hit his family there, he took a SINGLE opportunity ..”
Excuses, excuses and more excuses. Stop making excuses or making excuses for others. Work on you.
I think most people are capable of it. We know several stories of overcoming people that even without a family or education or financial background have come a long way, so there is no excuse, every day there are people below you winning in life and with bright futures ahead while you stand still others move. Right now, someone in a poor neighborhood is being born or going to college in a very poor neighborhood TODAY that will be better and bigger than you (and me) 25 years from now.
I have no doubts. Who can eat, sleep, study and have a computer with internet access literally has the world in their hands and millions of opportunities to learn, evolve and grow.
Build your plan, follow your plan, persist in your path, work, save, invest, learn, read, work more, save more, study more, dedicate more and everything happens, it is a matter of preparation and time.
