OK, now that that piece of business is out of the way, lets get down to this weeks post. Over the holidays, i went to numerous friends houses for dinner parties and the conversation of losing weight naturally came up. Of course, with new years eve just around the corner (at that time), everyone was making resolutions to lose weight and live a healthier life. From my conversations, it suddenly dawned upon me that most people would prefer to starve themselves than to eat normally and exercise. Whenever i recommended doing some simple exercises, almost everyone told me that exercise is not their thing, no time to exercise, yadda dadda daadaa and the list goes on and on. But if you were to tell me to stop eating this and that, i would much prefer to do it and i think that is easier to manage.
So after hearing all this, i have a theory. Malaysians in general are not keen on exercising to lose weight, but would much rather starve themselves or drink shakes in replacement of meals to lose weight. Hmmm... no wonder there are so many diet programs out there which are a hit.
So today, i went for lunch with some friends and decided to put my observation / theory to the test. I asked a few friends. I have a way for you to lose 5kg in 1 month. But there are 2 options.
Option A: I will give you a specific food guide for every meal, and you must eat exactly like i tell you to for a full 1 month.
Option B: You can continue eating like you are eating right now, but you have to work out 3 to 4 times a week with a specific exercise routine.
Guess what the answer was... no surprise here. Everyone chose Option A. So i asked everyone why Option A and the response i got were
- It's a no brainer... just do as you are told and voila you see results.
- Little effort on my part.
- I don't have time to exercise these days.
So what do you guys think? Heard the same responses as i have? Which option would you choose? There is no right or wrong option, its just a matter of your preference i guess. So, as usual, look forward to hearing your comments.
