The Ham Story
Many enjoy the topics of fitness and diet. But not many people think about why they do something. They depend on what they’re told to do instead of also thinking for themselves.
For this, Kyle recalls the ham story. A mother used to bake ham in the holidays. She would cut it in half before baking. It was a tradition their family held.
The thing was they never knew why they were doing so until they asked the person who started the tradition. Similarly, many exercise to stay fit without knowing why they’re doing so. Sadly, they think that they are doing the right thing.
Number one in the list is calorie deprivation. Many think that they need to cut calories in order for them to lose weight. But, it doesn’t last long.
There is a set point that the physical body adheres to. As Kyle explains, it’s not something that you can put a habit around. You can’t go on farther than your set point.
The body has a limited amount of willpower. Take Kyle for example. His set point is 250 lbs to 235 lbs.
Every time he joins a contest, he starves himself for 4 months. Remember that the brain and body are geared for survival. They draw in weight when they need to.
