Why Deprivation Diet When Exercise WORKS For Weight Loss, Fitness, Health

skip exercise skip meals

Holiday Season is HERE!  EET wants to help you eat MORE and weigh less!!  Sooo….Assuming your goal is weight loss, fitness and improved health here are some quick questions to think about: Studies are very unclear in proving ANY single food or food group directly causes serious diseases like cancer or diabetes or even obesity (not sugar, not processed foods, not artificial sweeteners, not HCFS — NONE have clear evidence).

However, studies are far more conclusive that properly designed EXERCISE can PREVENT, dramatically reduce or even CURE these most serious illnesses/conditions (especially high blood pressure and triglycerides).

Questions:

1) Why do dieters focus so heavily on restricting food groups when ALL the evidence actually says that will cause weight gain over time?

2) Why do people ALWAYS make time for their meals (and even go out of their way to eat their meals if their schedule gets screwed up), but act as though exercise is optional?

3) Does the chart above bother you? Why??

Same Diet, Calories, MORE Exercise = FAT GAIN for 70% Women! New Clinical Study Fitness? Health?

FAT GAIN STUDY 14

A brand new Clinical Study showing FAT GAIN with more exercise can now be added to the overwhelming evidence that the Calories in vs Calories out “sacrifice based” model for weight loss is completely flawed.  The only question left is why do so many failed yo-yo dieters as well as weight and fitness obsessed skinny people continue to make the world of weight loss and fitness frighteningly like “The Matrix”:

“Most of these people are not ready to be unplugged….Many of them are so inurred, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”

Personally, I gave up on the calories in vs calories out, sacrifice and pain are necessary for success model 7 years ago after two life changing events:

1)   A good long look in the mirror revealed I had gained 25 pounds in 20 years trying to succeed using the calorie and sacrifice based model.

2)  A good long look around the world and realizing no one else was succeeding using this model either.   A microscopic handful somehow managed to give up amazing food while endlessly exercising then acting like that’s something to be admired (it’s NOT imho), while 99.9% of obese people simply gave up their health and fitness relying on this “proven” model.

I could write an endless science-based essay on how EET is not the least bit surprised by the latest study’s results while scientists continue to be baffled and somehow conclude “you just need discipline”.  I could also explain steps you could take today to break out of this pain-filled matrix.  But I won’t.  I’ve already written many.  Hell I’ve gone on TV to explain it.   It doesn’t seem to help.

The choice is yours:  you can spend time trying to spin the results of this latest study in some way that will allow you to keep believing in the current calorie and sacrifice based model of  “eat less and exercise more”, or you can step outside the Matrix and learn what science says truly has a chance of working long-term.

EETfit Metabolic Exercise – 1 Step Health, Fitness, No Gym! VIDEO Shows How!

aerobic step trailer

Do you need the ability to walk up steps?  I say YES–a hellova lot more than say, bench press where you lay down and push a weighted bar up–how many times is THAT skill needed in life?  I’m gonna ball park NEVER.  

This 30 second video shows you one of many FUNCTIONAL workouts I choose from every day as part of my 5-30 minute EETfit Metabolic Exercise Routine that also creates some nice fat loss. The single step exercise is also FAR more effective than running full flights of stairs for many reasons EET will soon be sharing.  

MANY successful EETers also do this 1 STEP exercise but they don’t find the cool scenery like I do so I bet they don’t enjoy it as much!!   NOTE: This exercise is simple but it’s not for a beginner!!  EET will offer a complete video of how to use this exercise for improved metabolism and fitness including beginner intermediate and advanced levels soon.

 

1 basic workout formats

EET’s New and Improved Progressive Interval and Circuit Workout Formats work with a wide variety of exercises and are carefully designed to encourage

CONSISTENCY  * INJURY PREVENTION  * IMPROVED FAT METABOLISM  * FUNCTIONAL FITNESS

 How fit?  About a month ago, I joined a neighbor on their 10 mile hilly trail run–I hadn’t run for distance in over a year!  Result?  Enjoyed the entire 10 miles without stopping (though it felt like it took forever) and no soreness at all the next day!

Add occasional challenges like that to weight and fitness beyond my goals and many challenging work and adventure related activities,  and you get an idea how my EET Metabolic Exercise is going so far…..

Potato Chips, 100,000 Nurses & NEJM Obesity Study = Cure For My Candy Binges?

nejm 2011 potato study title

In 2011, the NEJM was back at it with another huge study to find answers about obesity.  This study was not geared towards curing obesity because of the powerful results they discovered in my favorite study of all time back in 2009 which concluded:  SPOILER ALERT!!

21yo yo katan gastric

Instead the 2011 study was focused on obesity PREVENTION, and the study covered more than 100,000  people over a period of  20 YEARS – A TRULY LONG-TERM STUDY.  I got my popcorn ready and prepared to be “infotained”  

NURSES??

This study’s results consisted of lifestyle choices for 100,000 health professionals, mostly nurses.  But not all nurses – they excluded a “handful”.  Here’s a partial list of exclusions:

We excluded participants with obesity, diabetes, cancer, or cardiovascular, pulmonary, renal, or liver disease…those who were newly pregnant during follow-up; and those who were over 65 years of age, given possible confounding due to age-related loss of lean muscle mass. 

While it makes sense to exclude those who already obese, seriously ill  or old to evaluate the lifestyles of those who were not obese, healthy and young, it did raise two huge questions:

  1. Can the feedback from one group of professionals, even a really large group,  speak for the entire population of people with diverse educational and financial backgrounds?
  2. Can the lifestyles of people who are not obese really offer any meaningful guidance to those who are?

But, any well researched long-term study is a rarity and beggars can’t be choosers so I kept reading.

POTATOES??

Here are some results from this massive study:

The average weight gain across the cohorts was 3.35 lbs….during each 4-year period; this change corresponds to a weight gain of 16.8 lb over a period of 20 years.

According to this study even the skinny folks gain weight over time—though 17 pounds over 20 years is laughable.  I’d gain 17 pounds in 20 weeks without EET (seriously) !  But there is a strong takeaway here:.  ALL dieters of any weight should strive to keep learning and improving or things WILL get worse.  Weight loss and fitness is REALLY challenging and should never be underestimated or taken for granted.   

Next, here’s a summary of the weight gain or loss attributable to various foods – note the tendency for non-obese healthy nurses to gain far more weight thanks to potatoes and related products than any form of sugar.  Does this mean that even though potatoes and related products are generally gluten-free and often all natural that they are addictive?  Should we be looking at bans and additional taxes here? (click to enlarge)

nejm nurses study results

 

THE MEDIA??

What did the media say we learn from this study?  Here’s some headlines from major media outlets –

Potato chips piling on the pounds, study finds – CBS News

Chips: The Leading Cause of Obesity in America :..

Gaining weight? Beware potatoes—baked, fried, or in chips Harvard Health

Is this really the message?  Researchers studied a very specific population of non-obese health professionals, but the media message was presented as the answer for everyone.  And what was that message?  Exactly what EVERY study of obese people proves is the WORST thing you can do:  force food restrictions on the foods you enjoy most.  That results in weight gain over time, per every study on obese people, EVER.

MY CANDY BINGES?

What does all this have to do with my personal binging and how I dealt with it?  A few subtle messages that are all incredibly important

  1. Long-Term Weight Loss and Fitness is nearly impossible, even for skinny people!
  2. Don’t take weight loss and fitness for granted, ever – keep learning and improving.
  3. POTATO CHIPS ARE AWESOME AS ARE ALL FOODS YOU LOVE!  The media will print what grabs the most attention, without concern for critical details of research and studies. Understand the value of doing your homework before making any diet and exercise changes.

To reinforce the lessons to be learned here, look what just a few minutes of personal research revealed– a good sized 2014 study:

 

potato chips not obesity study

Prevalence rates of obesity or overweight did not vary significantly according to potato chips consumption (p-value = 0.19), ranging from 24% (164) in those who are snacking potato chips at least once per day up to 25% (361) in those who are snacking potato chips never or rarely. Non significance of the association persisted (p-value 0.598) even after adjustment for major confounders (hours/week TV, physical activity, BMI father, BMI mother, number brothers or sisters, socio-economic status, fruit portions/day, vegetables portions/day). Conclusions. The consumption of particular foods such as high energy dense foods is not responsible for prevalence rates of overweight and obesity if associated to a healthy lifestyle.

 ACTION PLAN??

Will this blog post inspire you to study my last 6 blog posts, which provide you science backed answers I’ve used to successfully manage my weight including coping with periodic urges to binge for years?   Or will continue to look for your answers in the media headlines or on cool sites like Buzzfeed which all too often recommend radical headline grabbing changes like basing your diet decisions on 100,000 skinny nurses telling you to give up potato chips forever.  If you’re a skinny nurse, this might be a good plan.  For the rest of us, there are better answers out there, and in my opinion, it’s part of the true cure for obesity for you to learn as many as possible.

Binge Eating and Diet for Weight Loss 101 : Overeating on Thanksgiving

turkey candy

Are you uncomfortable talking about binge eating or serious overeating?  How about on Thanksgiving? 

It doesn’t end there.  I could mention Christmas “season”, New Years Day, weekly football events (used to be just Super Bowl Sunday), vacations, social gatherings and  parties, diet “cheat” days and even micro-binges like “all you can eat” buffets and “happy” hours.  But I won’t :-).

IS IT GOOD OR EVIL?  DEPENDS ON THE DAY?

THURSDAY:  Dieting is EVIL.  Binging on heaping plates of decadent foods:  GOOD!

NEXT MONDAY:  Dieting:  GOOD!   Binging on heaping plates of decadent foods:  EVIL! 

What chance does your diet stand of long-term success when all the best times include binging/overeating and you only suffer through your diet as a necessary evil thing during times you are depriving yourself?

THE EET TIMING DIETBINGING IS ON THE PLAN!

Is EET kidding?  “How can you encourage binging.  That’s dangerous!”  No one ever said binging or even overeating is encouraged.  EET simply includes Guidelines that make sure dieters don’t feel the need to define their diet as EVIL during these times. 

If you’re serious about losing weight and keeping it off, then a HUGE step for you is to end the negative associations with the words diet, binge and overeating.  In fact, you must get comfortable with them.  To be on a diet is a GREAT thing, if you have the flexibility to eat what you need at all times and still lose weight over time.  EET Guidelines and no rules give you this flexibility.  Binging and Overeating occur because you’re human and you love food, how is that an evil thing!  It’s simply a challenge that dieters face, and EET wants your DIET to be there to help them face that challenge, in the moment, not be a burden you feel you must run away from until you’re ready to be “good” again.  Trust me, depriving yourself of lots of amazing food on a diet is NOT GOOD – - that’s what causes the binging and overeating to begin with!!

EXPECTATIONS MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE

To set an expectation that you will never binge (or overeat) again, just because you decided it’s time to go on a weight loss diet, is to set an expectation for guilt and failure leading to to yo-yo dieting.  EET teaches that Yo-Yo Must Go! (Guideilne #1)  and yo-yo ain’t going anywhere if you feel you must go off your diet to eat a lot of food, whether it’s a horrible out of control eating disorder binge, or that exact same binge you’ll actually enjoy and smile about afterwards if it happens to fall on Thanksgiving!

3 Science Backed Strategies To Stop Binge Eating Using Music The Who, Springsteen, More

munchies

WARNING – Most dieters are not prepared to attempt the strategies to stop binging (or any overeating) you are about to read.

  They insist that pain and suffering are necessary for anything related to weight loss, fitness and even eating foods they love.  However, science taught me these strategies should work and they have worked for me for many years.  They are as pain-free as they seem.   However, they can be dangerous in the hands of a yo-yo dieter so I cannot currently recommend trying them.  Instead I recommend mastering Steps 1 2 and 3 covered in previous posts as a starting point.

All EET Binging Strategies Rely on Carefully Selected Foods and Music I Enjoy

Binging occurs because of what you’re focused on in the moment.  The obessive focus on eating massive (or any) amounts of food you’d prefer not to eat is likely triggered from one specific region of your brain.  Proof of this is simple.  If you’re binging and you get a call that you must rush to an emergency for a family member, you will stop binging and take action on the emergency because it’s a higher priority.   So EETs goal is to activate more areas of your brain at this key TIME (in the moment) to compete with the urge to binge or overeat, but without harming family members!  We want to succeed in a PAIN FREE WAY.

Food choices vary by strategy, but it’s proven that music wakes up massive brain function over and above normal thinking.  Therefore, I simply find a song I enjoy that sends a positive message and compliments the food strategy I’m using in the moment during eating challenges.  Food and Music are a powerful combination that I want working for me when I’m faced with an eating challenge!  They allow me to think more clearly, make more logical decisions and usually prevents the binge or stops it very quickly.  Here are details of three strategies to show you what I mean:

 Strategy 1 ERROR TO THE EASY (Commodores)

Email subscribers click here if you cannot watch the videos on your email.

EET teaches that an undeprived body + happy mind  =  end of binge urge.  I can make this formula work by going EASY when things seem most challenging. A good example of “erroring to the easy” when I feel the urge to binge is to:

Eat a lot of food right at that moment using 50-25-5-5.

 50-25-5-5 is EET’s 10-5-1-1 (Guideline #18) turbocharged.   I allow myself all the candy I want after I eat a huge meal full of foods I ENJOY that I have no desire to binge on.  Please don’t be like a yo-yo dieter and think it’s all turkey and broccoli.  When candy is the problem I eat  protein, fiber, veggies and water, but I also want other BETTER FOOD that I enjoy.  Dealing with my current urge to binge on candy has included very satisfying portions of ice cream, cakes, and other treats like slurpees.  And, of course, I can still eat candy.    In fact, I normally have a decent portion of candy at the end of the huge meal.  I don’t want to feel deprived, ever.  I want things easy so I can think clearly!  It’s the thought process during the meal of deciding what candy I’ll enjoy that I’m after.  I’m in control.  That’s far more important in that moment than any weight loss or nutrition considerations.

Whenever there’s an urge to binge, I want to remember to ALWAYS error to the easayyy – ahhh ahhh ahhh ahhh………

 Strategy 2  SUBSTITUTE   (The Who)

 

How do I prove to myself that binging is a relic from my 20 years of yo-yo dieting and is completely unnecessary on The EET Timing Diet?  I remember that my urge to binge is BRAND SPECIFIC.  

After my recent binge, I  took a pic of the candy shop shown at the top of this post.   It’s walking distance from my house.  Candy everywhere!   I better stay out of there, right?  Wrong!   I don’t enjoy any of the candies they sell like taffy and fudge and especially stuff like licorice and wouldn’t eat them even during a candy binge.  How is that possible?  They are candy, right?  I’m binging on candy that’s loaded with the same sugar and carbs, right?  So if it’s not the sugar or the carbs, it must be the chocolate then?  WRONG.  I could pass on chocolate Hershy bars and regular M and M’s if I hadn’t eaten in a week.   Peanut and Almond M & M’s are dangerous for me though.  There’s no doubt it’s only particular BRANDS of candy that set off my urge to binge!

Even with all my great EET tools like The Line in The Sand, I tend to lose control over specific candies (as well as certain other foods) which I now call Kryptonite:

Kryptonite:  Foods that contribute to weight gain and reduced fitness far more than the joy I get from eating.

So EET’s Substitute strategy offers a simple solution – I look to substitute other candy for kryptonite candies when the binge urge occurs using two other EET tools: The EET Satsifaction Score and The Search (see Guideline #4 of EET’s Book)!

 Some specific candy substitutions  that work consistently for me (after a LOT of testing and practice) are:  4 Coffee Rio hard candies or 3 Werthers hard Caramels, and if I need larger portions of candy I can eat a moderate sized package of Pnuttles with chocolate m and m’s without no urge to binge on them whatsoever. Eating these specific candies and portions usually ends my desire to binge on the kryptonite candies as well because of their high EET Satisfaction Scores.

Strategy 3  I CAME FOR YOU (Springsteen)

 This is seriously advanced EETing strategy that I still haven’t mastered, but I hope to someday.  I won’t go too in depth but here’s the concept.

 I go right into the fire.  When I feel the urge to binge,  I define how much candy I think will satisfy me very specifically, by brand and quantity.  I then pull out the candy basket shown above and with Springsteen as my guide dive in and get the exact candy in the exact amount I came for (whistling I came for you, for you, I came for you…. :-)).  I can always go back for more, and still do more often than I would like, but it’s improving.

 The way this strategy has consistently worked well for me is a less risky version where I use my kryptonite candies as “finishers”.  I’ll eat my entire meal and then know how many Almond M and M’s I would like to eat to FINISH the meal.  I’ll always take a few extra to make sure I’ve got the best chance of staying in control and truly stop eating (aka “error to the easy!”).  I don’t mess around with Kryptonite.  You can see I’m doing okay with Springsteen helping me out because there is still a basket of candy I can share a picture of!


 

Someday 

I know the idea of using music as part of a strategy to overcome a challenge works for more than just me.  It’s a big part of EET’s Half Marathon Training where EETers have run half marathons with fewer than 10 training runs.   You may not be ready for them today, but if you have any interest in learning more, start by mastering Step 3 which are the strategies to AVOID.  Prove you can eliminate those failed approaches and all suffering from your diet and exercise and maybe SOMEDAY you can use EET’s PAIN FREE musical strategies for binges or any overeating to smile about your diet (and exercise) more often in the future!

Hey, that reminds me of a song!  Some of my favorite EETers have used it to do amazing things –
