Diet Like a Celebrity

Why do movie stars get paid millions and millions of dollars?

They convince us that, for just a moment in time, we’re actually in another world. Maybe you’re stuck in the hustle and bustle of New York City, maybe you’re a knight in medieval times, or maybe you’re the only human alive in a zombie apocalypse.

Actors go to great lengths to prepare for the roles they play. Let’s say their next role is as a superhero. Part of their preparation would include getting in tip-top shape with a healthy diet and lifestyle, because who would believe in a superhero’s power to save the world when they aren’t even in shape?

What if I told you that you could harness that same level of dedication to get fit too?

You can, and after this blog I know you will!

You’re the star, and your next role is the healthy and happy new “you”! Let’s get you “fit” for the role with a couple of tips celebrities, like your favorite movie stars, use to get toned.

How Healthy Are You?

Do you constantly scan health magazines and websites for dieting tips? Do you record those mid-day talk shows that chit chat about whatever “a new research study says…”? Do you spend most of your time on YouTube looking for new exercises, diets, and formulas for shedding fat instantly?

None of that is bad; you SHOULD care about your health. But how do you know how healthy you actually are?

There are so many research studies, so many reports, so many websites, and so many experts spreading fitness and health info that it’s hard to pick out what’s right from what’s wrong. The result? People often follow the wrong diets and the wrong workouts, and they never lose the weight they’re trying to lose…

Before you pick the program to achieve your fitness goals, you first need to assess how healthy you really are, usually with a trained professional. Let’s look at a couple of ways you can determine what level your health and fitness are at.

How to Crush the Hardest Part of Your Workout

“Just one more! You can do it!”

“Don’t give in! You’re almost there!”

Why do trainers love saying stuff like this to their clients? Do they know something that we don’t?

They actually do know one thing about fitness that flies over nearly everyone else’s heads…

Fitness is as much mental as it is physical.

When you overcome that nagging voice in your head that swears you can’t do it, that right there is the best feeling ever.

If you’ve ever seen the movie Rocky, you might remember that he would end his runs by running up a bunch of steps, get to the top, stare out at the cityscape, and hold his arms up like the champ he was.

That can be YOU, I promise. You just have to push past those moments when your body wants to stop. Trust me: you’ll see more growth in yourself than ever before.
