60 Days to a New You
Back when I was in terrible shape and wanted to get back into health, I really struggled. I was 50lbs overweight and had terrible back pain. It was a huge toll on me to be so young and so beaten down. It was a cascading, downward spiral that nearly broke me.
When you are hurt, there is the physical suffering, known as the primary suffering, and then there is the mental suffering, known as the secondary suffering. Often the secondary suffering can get in the way of seeing the path out of pain clearly and make the physical pain worse.
My meditation teacher says “pain is suffering multiplied by resistance”. That means when you are fighting against your situation, you are focusing on the gap between where you are and where you want to be. That gap causes pain and creates a lens from which you see everything through. It amplifies the pain and creates hypersensitivity to the pain which turns into a terrible cycle. That psychological pain exacerbates physical pain and can even cause it.
It takes a great deal of effort to break that cycle. I’ve written about how to get out of back pain here. However, once you get out of pain, you’ll likely want to get even healthier. To that end, I’ve written an ebook that illustrates just how to do that. Along with my crazy experiments, I detail out how to change your diet and give you day by day meals and exercises. In my experience, it will take about 60 days to transform your habits and adapt your body.
From those who have gone through this program, they definitely lose weight. But more importantly, they get an idea of how to make the right choices when everything in your environment appears to conspire against you.
