If You Want To Lose Weight, Quit The GymHealthy living doesn’t start with Crossfit. It starts in the kitchen. “>

Have you heard the proverb you cant out-exercise a bad diet?

What you feed matters. It matters so much that if you want to start the journey towards creating a healthier youperhaps losing weight or simply feeling better overall I recommend hurling all of your focus on eating: changing what you feed, when you feed, with who you are feed, how you eat, how often you feed, where you eat, how late you feed, and how fast you eat.

Screw going to the gym. Health starts in the kitchen.

Spend the time and dollars you would working out instead reading books about cook, doing daily or weekly grocery shopping, learning as much as you perhaps can about foodand, of course, practising the art of cooking as much as possible.

I call it the cookery reformation, and recommend sticking to it for at least two months. It takes an average of 66 days to form a habit according to this study from the University College of London.

How does this translate? Every snack you feed for two months, save the working day a week, should be made by you in your kitchen.

You dont know how to cook or you merely dont have time to cook? I dont buy it. This self-denial of your abilities or a poor period management skillset is the crux of your problems.

If you can you navigate Netflix every night, garbage hours on Grindr during the week, or swipe right while youre at the office, you can probably figure out how to simmer water and add potatoes, pasta, yams, or zucchini.

I also have full religion that f you can navigate Snapchat, you can figure out how to watch a few Youtube videos( heres a video of 91 -year-old Clara who cooks snacks from the Great Depression) and teach yourself to cook. Or better yet, ask someone you know who can cooka friend, a cousin, a neighbor, a co-workerto teach you a few healthy recipes. I bet this person will say yes.

Cooking is a primordial act. Its what separates us from all the remainder. Its not going away anytime soon.

You dont even require an app to track what you feed. Stop squander your time counting calories. No matter what food-tracking app you have on your smartphone or Fitbit gizmo you wear on your wrist , nothing can compete with spending hour each day in the kitchen, teaching yourself how to cook food your grandparents eat during the depressionaka, real food.

Real food entails it doesnt have a nutrition label. Think broccoli, fresh salad, cauliflower, zucchini, beets, chicken liver. Yep, its a total mystery how many calories youre feeing of this stuffbut if its real food( and heavy on the vegetables ), your body will know what to do with it.

Your journey to weight loss begin with you going home on a Monday evening, feeing your last unhealthy meal while ordering a few cookbooks from Amazon, together with a cast iron skillet and Tupperware for the leftovers. These are the foundation for your cookery reformation.

Not sure what food books to order? Go with your intestine. I recommend Googling good cook books, or checking out whats highly reviewed on Amazon. Order them used to save some money( use it at the grocery store !).

Cookbooks are embellished forms of cookery passed down orally, generation to generation, by the working classes. Remember this the next time you grab that wooden spoonful and get your cook on.
