As the performer and musician that I am, moving my body to the music has always come natural to me. There are some musicians who are unable to move to the music (I personally think that’s due to conditioned blockages of some sort, rather than a lack of feeling, but that’s another subject). Having chosen dance-aerobics as a child it was logical that my way into fitness was ETM (Exercise to Music). My motivation was expressing myself through music while burning calories and moving in all directions.
You could argue I’m wrong, but then I am not. Chocolate is also a vegetable and pizza is a massive crouton in a salad with cheese and other various ingredients. An octopus is a pet (see where I’m going?).
When was the day you were wounded?
Did you feel you lost a piece of your soul,
or perhaps all of it?
Where do you go when you dream…?
… Our spirit goes where it wants to go.
As a trainer, with my humble sports nutrition knowledge and experience I have designed a good number of Nutrition Plans for my clients, all of them with different food intolerances, allergies, preferences and tastes. In most cases, for fat loss/body toning, the rules are to increase protein and green vegetables’ intake and reduce fat amounts and unnecessary calories from ‘nutritionally empty foods’ (which may be rich in micronutrients and water but not macros, such as celery, lettuce, mushrooms, bone broth, etc). Now, is this optimal and adequate for every individual? the answer is no.
It is a constant in life that opposites go always hand in hand. In that statement there is already alignment, which is already a contradiction in itself (how can opposites be aligned?). The foundation of the universe is opposites, polarities. There is no universe in unity, only eternity. Eternity is beyond the universe. You may think that this is way too far fetched or philosophical, but what is life if one doesn’t think? I think, therefore I am – someone said 🙂
Ultimately, weight loss is down to calories consumed vs. calories burnt. The different training modalities allow you to lose weight by burning either fat or carbs (hopefully, not muscle).
