Whether you like him or hate him, there is one thing that all people could agree when it comes to the president of the United States, Donald J. Trump: he can lose some weight.
The truth is, ever since the campaign, the guy has just kept on putting pounds. It is kind of puzzling because he does spend a lot of time in his private resort, Mar-a-Lago, in Florida.
Usually, when people play golf quite a bit, they tend to at least maintain weight or prevent themselves from gaining weight.
Well, apparently, when it comes to this kind of thing, President Trump is having a tough time. He’s basically on the losing end of that battle.
Here are just some ideas on how a busy person like the most powerful person on the planet, the president of the United States, can lose weight without necessarily going to the gym.
Do Things the Hard Way
This piece of advice applies across the board. Whether you are an intern, a student, or the president, or anybody in between, you can do this.
To lose weight passively, you just need to understand that there is really only two ways you can get rid of those pesky extra pounds. Either you eat less calories, and this means eating less every day, or you workout more or engage in more physical activities.
A lot of people are under the misconception that for you to increase your activities, you have to necessarily go to the gym. They think that you have to somehow go out of your way to increase your physical activities.
It doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t have to go out of your way.
For example, if you go to the mall, you can park far away. This forces you to walk. And if you do this regularly, you don’t even think about it.
You don’t even think you’re doing something that’s out of the ordinary. You just do it because you just need to get to the front doors of the mall and do your thing.
President Donald J. Trump can do the same thing. He just needs security clearance from his Secret Service detachment and he should be good to go.
Whether it’s parking far away, lifting more stuff instead of having an assistant lift it, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator or the escalator, there are just so many ways modern technology as well as modern planning has reduced our overall activity levels.
By going a little bit old school and doing things the hard way, we can actually add several hundred calories to our daily calorie burn rate.
The best part to all of this is that it’s passive. You don’t even think about it.
You just think that it’s part of your daily routine, but guess what? Those extra calories that you are burning day after day do add up. They lead, eventually, to a slimmer waistline.
Cut Out the Sugar
President Donald J. Trump is quite famous for indulging in the standard American diet.
Now, a lot of people all over the world would be envious of the standard American diet because it’s heavy on sugar, it’s heavy on fat, it’s very filling, and it makes you feel content. When you have that much fat going through your system as well as sugars, your serotonin levels go up.
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in the human brain that signals wellness, happiness, contentment, and all the other good stuff. And when you eat certain types of diets, you get a nice burst of serotonin.
Now, the downside to this is actually quite easy to see. You pay a heavy price for a high-sugar diet.
Current research has indicated that a high-fat diet is not as bad as you think. A lot of people are under the impression that if they eat a lot of food with a lot of oil in it, that it’s necessarily going to get them sick.
Well, it turns out that it’s the other way around. Human ancestors actually ate a lot of fatty foods. That’s how they feel fuller for a longer period of time because they don’t know when their next meal will happen.
That’s how uncertain life was. So early human beings got into the habit of picking out really fatty animals or really fatty portions of fruits and vegetables. By sticking to that strategy, people made it long enough to be able to breed and start a new generation.
It turns out that this type of lifestyle prevents people from becoming overweight. You just weigh the right amount.
The opposite of this is a diet heavy in sugar. Now, you may be thinking to yourself, “Well, I don’t really eat that much sugar. It’s not like I go to my dinner table and I whip out a glass full of sugar.”
Well, take a look at the product labels of all the foods that you’ve been eating. Chances are, it’s either loaded with direct, naked, natural sugar, or it is disguised in the form of high fructose corn syrup and other forms of sugar.
Please understand that it doesn’t matter what the name of the product is. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a sugar or not. It all boils down to how your liver processes that biochemical compound. If it is processed as sugar, it is sugar.
By skipping on sugar, President Donald Trump can reduce his hunger cycles throughout the day because he would end up stabilizing his insulin peaks and crashes. This can have a dramatic effect on how much he eats throughout the day.
If you or President Trump, or anybody else are looking to slim down, one of the fastest ways to do it is to simply cut out sugar. And one of the easiest things you can do is to get rid of soda.
Start with soda. Because when you do that, you get rid of several tablespoons of sugar from your diet immediately. Scale up from there and you will only thank yourself for it later on.
