”Albert Einstein, who discovered that a tiny amount of mass is equal to a huge amount of energy, which explains why, as Einstein himself so eloquently put it in a famous 1939 speech to the Physics Department at Princeton, “You have to exercise for a week to work off the thigh fat from a single Snickers.””~Dave Barry, Dave Barry Turns 50
According to Einstein losing weight is hard. Well I bet you didn’t need Einstein to tell you that. You probably know this fact as being true for some time. That is why most people hate losing weight. It just isn’t easy to do.
But you must also consider the inverse of what Einstein said as being true. You need lots of energy to create just 1 pound of mass or fat. So you see the findings of Einstein can benefit you if you use them advantageously.
For example once you have lost weight it is to your advantage to manage your energy intake, meaning food intake, and make sure you consume it all, or the better part of it. Speeding up your metabolism is a great way of burning off most of the excess energy that your body would use to create fat.
What Einstein’s statement also points out is the fact that it will take time to lose weight. You can’t expect to lose 10 pounds in two days. You will have to burn such a large quantity of energy that it is for sure unhealthy and probably physically impossible. The wear and tear on your body would be so great that the benefits will be nonexistent.
It probably took you years to gain all the excess fat that you have stored on your body. It will take you at least a couple of months of laser focused weight loss activity to get rid of most of your excess body fat. Keep that in mind when you start any weight loss program. It will keep you from becoming disillusioned while losing weight.
