[SB #232] The right prescription
I’m Matt, and welcome to Steady Beats. If you like to walk for a better life, and also like Dire Straits’ “Walk of Life,” you just might like this newsletter.
My wife recently talked to a woman who lost 70 pounds and got her cholesterol under control by carrying around Honey Nut Cheerios in a baggie. She snacked on them as needed. Whatever bad eating habits the Cheerios eliminated, it worked. For her.
She should write a book and launch a course, of course. Sponsored by General Mills.
(“This one ‘Nutty’ trick melts fat immediately …”)
Anyway, this post is a short reminder you do not have to:
Eat only meat and dairy
Eat only fruits and vegetables
Eliminate all processed carbs
Strength train 3X per week
Strength train 4X per week
Dedicate one day per week to training legs
Do loads of Zone 2 cardio (ok, actually, this one you probably do need to do)
Ignore your phone while strength training
What we do need is a spirit of play, of experimentation, and of dedication to our fitness. To find our own path amongst the millions of voices saying “This is the only way.”
Keeping searching, keep trying stuff out, hold it all lightly, and most importantly, keep going.
Thank you for reading.
Let’s keep the Steady Beats going. 💚
