Are You Destined For 8 Years Of Poor Health?

By Rob Poulos...

I was puttering around on the internet this morning and I saw
something that caught my eye.  It was the latest data regarding
our current life expectancy as humans from the World Health
Organization, along with a history of how that’s changed over
the years.

This info went all the way back to the Neanderthal period (the
guys from the Geico commercials) up to present day humans.
Those poor Geico guys only lived to be 20 years old on average,
while today’s humans can expect about 75 years of life.

But did you know that today’s people have an average
healthy life expectancy of just 67 years?  In other words, this
is saying that you can expect 8 years of your life in poor
health.  8 years!  That’s 2900+ days of poor health.  I don’t
know about you, but that’s not something I’m looking forward to.

I sure think we can do better than 67 years of good health on
this planet.  And you know what?  We can.  This number is an
average.  Like anything else, you don’t have to be average if
you don’t want to be.  The average person doesn’t exercise
properly, if at all.  The average person doesn’t know how to
make the right foods selections and maintain a healthy diet.
The average person doesn’t apply themselves mentally and
emotionally to maintain relatively stress free living.

If this sounds a little bit too much like you, the good news is
you don’t have to be this person any longer.  While it is a
shame that today’s health, fitness, and diet industry is simply
confusing more people than it’s helping, there are a few people
and organizations out there that can provide a realistic,
effective and efficient approach to breaking past the average
healthy life span and living those years full of energy,
strength, and vitality.

I get questions from my Fat Burning Furnace students all the
time, after going through the FBF materials, about how they
can’t believe how little exercise I recommend.  And even though
I’ve told them up front that they can let go of the aerobics or
traditional cardio, many still have trouble doing that.  And
what I tell them is directly related to the subject of life
expectancy and just how much time we really have in our lives.

I tell them that to burn fat fast & have a lean, strong, and
healthy body is great.  It’s one of the most important things
we can attain. Period.  But, how much time is it worth to you?
That’s the question I asked myself over and over when seeking
out my own methods and developing the FBF system.

Most people, after years and years of trial and error, come to
realize that spending several days and hours a week working out
is just not worth the trouble.  And carefully measuring your
food, counting calories, and depriving yourself of nutrient rich
foods like whole grain carbohydrates is also something that
shouldn’t be necessary to enjoy a healthy and energy filled
life.  And it isn’t.

What we really should be focusing on is how much time and effort
is minimally required to get the results we’re looking for.
Think about that.  Not how much, but how much is minimally
required.  Remember, we’ve got just 67 healthy years as a
starting point…If I valued my time on this planet, this is
what I would be searching for.

If it really took hours and hours a week and all of that crazy
nutrition manipulation to burn fat, build muscle, strength, and
cardiovascular health, I’m not sure I’d do it.  Not for very
long anyway.  I’ve tried that approach, for years, and if you
have you know it’s no fun.  And it’s just not realistic given
the demands our lives place on us in today’s world.

But as I’ve mentioned before, you don’t have to worry about that
kind of stuff anymore.  The principles in my FBF system allow
you to approach your genetic potential for a lean, strong, and
healthy body in just minutes each week and with very simple
lifestyle changes.

I’ve been using the FBF principles for a while now.  I work out
twice each week.  I even take a week off entirely every few
weeks or so.  I don’t count calories.  I don’t deprive myself of
the foods I love.  If it’s my daughter’s birthday, I eat a piece
of cake.  I just work the FBF principles and continue to stay in
great shape day after day, week after week, year after year.

I work out so little because of the way the workouts are
performed and created, and I eat with such flexibility because I
stick with the FBF lifestyle, which gives you the power of
flexibility and variation that is lacking in most programs.

What I’m saying is that I’ve discovered what is minimally
required to give me the health and body that I wanted.  And many
of my FBF students are doing it as well.  Sure I could add
another day a week to my workouts, but at this point it would
actually be detrimental to my results.  I could also start
messing with my diet in all sorts of crazy ways, but that would
just make my body angry and cause me unneeded stress.

So, I ask you, are you trying to find what’s minimally required
to get you the results you want?  If you truly value your time
and the other worthy pursuits in your life, I’m suggesting that
this is exactly what you should be doing.  If you don’t, you may
just end up being an average 67 year old with 8 years of poor
health to look forward to.
