The Fork N’ Fitbit Approach

I don’t want to have your baby.


Are you turning pale at the scale? Have you weighted long enough to get back into that size 6?

Do you readily admit in front of these millions of people that you don’t know what the hell you’re doing when it comes to losing fat (notice I didn’t say weight?) and getting in your best shape ever?

You’ve been going round and round for years. You hear all the same malarkey, “Eat this and you will burn fat, eat this and you will get fat.

Truth is, it doesn’t matter what you eat if you’re eating too much of it.

If you put too much fuel in the tank, you’re gonna get a big fuel tank.

I eat just before bed every night and I eat as soon as I get up every morning. On both occasions I eat until I’m satisfied. Because…wait for it…I know what’s coming in and I know what’s going out of my pie hole.

Simple. Do you?

If you have never taken the time to add up your total daily intake with your total daily output you will continue to tread water and hope for the best.

There are plenty of tools out there to help us manage our health and fitness. I use Calorie King, MyFitnessPal and a Fitbit to ensure I am not flailing around.

We don’t have to go out and buy lab coats to manage our magnificent human movement systems. (Notice the use of the word movement?)

But we should at least look at the manual.

In conclusion, we need to keep our fitness levels high these days and we can’t be wandering around in the dark.

Start tracking what you put in your body by whatever means you find the most interesting and informative.

Get a fitness tracker so you will become more aware of how much you’re moving every day.

It will also act as a reminder to walk more, run more, and for God’s sake, take the stairs. 🙂

Start using a calorie tracker to remind you when to drop the fork.

* It takes 20 minutes for your belly to tell your brain it’s full, OK?

We have the tools, we just need to use them.

You once were blind but now you see.
