Our Western world is obsessed with speed. Fast results. Fast solutions. Fast weight loss! Six pack abs in just six days!

We are rushing, rushing to the finish line—a finish line doesn’t really seem to exist. We’re working hard, always rushing, always trying to manage a packed schedule…

You’ve probably heard that weight loss is 80% diet—and it’s true! No matter how much exercise you do, eventually eating poorly is going to catch up to you. That’s why it’s important to eat a healthy, balanced diet containing high quality carbs, proteins, and fats.

I learned this principle years ago when I read Bill Phillips book Body for Life. I did his 90 day exercise challenge, and the simple diet of balancing carbs, fats and proteins with every meal. Within weeks I felt amazing, and had measurable improvements in body, smaller waist, bigger muscles… I looked and felt better than I had in ages. Since then I have experimented with many diets and programs, but I always end up coming back to just trying to get the right ratio of healthy carbs, proteins and fats, and when I do I’m at my best.

But here’s some great info on macro nutrients generally, and thoughts on the Carb, Protein, Fat ratio, and why you ought to get it right with EVERY MEAL.

But really, this practice might just be the secret “hack” to losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight… forever! It’s a handy little trick that has the power to change your relationship with food and your struggle with weight forever.
