In the last 6 months I’ve managed to lose 30lbs as part of a get in shape type of challenge I set to myself. You all know I do amazingly well with the ladies but has this effort really done anything in that arena?
To give you an idea, I’m 6-ft-1, and 6 months ago I weighed in at 200lbs. Granted, I wasn’t really fat but I did have a very visible belly and some manboobs. 30lbs lighter, I’ve got an 8-pack and am as most would call it, very fit. I’ve never been into big muscles and always aimed for a skinnier but ripped type body.
That being said, let’s look at what getting in shape can do to you when it comes to scoring more women.
1. Sky High Confidence
The better you look physically the better you’ll feel mentally. It’s just how we are as men. If you look and feel amazing, you’ll know it and radiate it from within. Your confidence will be sky high and all the women around you will feel it.
2. You will get A LOT more looks
Women like to check out great looking men in the same way you like to check out hot women. If you look amazing, women will notice you. They’ll actually stare at you in hopes that you’ll notice them doing it and approach them for a chat. Also, because so many women eye ball you, you’ll have a fantastic chick pool to choose from.
3. Women will approach you
In my past articles I’ve mentioned that I’ve hardly been approached. I mentioned that I always had to approach women and that you should always do the same. I still believe that, but looking this good has seriously ranked up that approach count. I’ve literally had women come up to me at least once a week. It may not sound as much but from 6 or so approaches in my life, to 1 a week… that’s an outstanding increase.
4. You’ll bang more women
Sure that may sound obvious, but looking good makes it easier for you to close. If she’s physically attracted to you, it means that she’ll also be easier to seduce, which means you really do need less game to score. You can make more mistakes, say a few stupid things, but she’ll still be there because “omg this guy looks so amazing”.
5. You’re going to get a LOT better at game
Looking good will bring you a lot more women, which automatically means you’ll be forced to improve your game. Getting all those looks in a club will force you to do something. Talking to girls more often will force you to improve your conversational skills. In short, looking good will make you better with women.
*The list above represents short term benefits. They are short term because once you open your mouth, if you sound like a retard; you’re still going to be a retard, regardless of how amazing you look.
How To Get In Shape
First of all I want to mention that I’m in no way a fitness expert nor am I a gym buff. I manage to lose weight and look good through trial and error and I’m going to share my views on it because it worked for me.
6 Pack Abs are made in the kitchen
I’ve read this statement on the internet so many times but I still never believed it. Thousands of ab crunches with almost no effect later and I can confidently say that it’s better to eat right than do “abs workouts” if you ever want them to be visible.
What you eat and how much you eat matters a LOT. To keep things simple, stay away from sugar (juices, ice cream, sweets etc) and junk food (burgers, mcdonalds, any fast food, crisps etc). If you manage to cut these things out, you’ll be half way there.
The next part is basically living your entire life with a feeling of hunger in your stomach. This may sound extreme but is in fact, a lot easier (at least for me) than eating 6 calculated meals a day. I mean, who has time to cook 6 meals a day? Instead of doing that, just force yourself to eat a lot less. Don’t starve yourself but in those 3 meals a day, eat enough to NOT be exactly full. In time, you’ll get used to this and it will seem much easier.
An easy tip on how to achieve this, don’t keep shit in your fridge. If you’ve got 3 salamis there, you’re going to eat sandwiches (bread and that salami). If you’ve got no salamis there, you’re NOT going to eat bread all by itself. No cured meats and spreads in the fridge will reduce your “snack” meals by 100%.
Work Out Every Day
Obviously this was coming but here’s the hard truth about it. You should aim to work out at least 30 minutes every day. To keep things a LOT simpler just do 150 or so pushups in 4-5 sets (if you can) and 150 squats again in same number per set. Do this each day before you eat breakfast. It won’t last more than 30 minutes and is ENOUGH.
If you feel like you’ve got it, do some before at lunch as well.
If you really really feel like you’ve got it, do a workout routine. I did INSANITY and it was amazing. Keep in mind that working out without a diet (or at least what I’ve mentioned above) is almost useless. The insanity workout is 9 weeks, 6 days a week, 1 hr a day and it’s absolutely insane. First 9 weeks I did it, I didn’t keep a diet and wasn’t forever hungry. I lost 6lbs. You can lose that much after you take a shit, so basically it was useless. Yes I was feeling fit; meat stayed better on me but at the end of the day, fat was there.
I actually lost a lot more and started to have abs visible when I just did the pushups and squats. When I realized that it must be the diet, I started doing that workout again and BY god how things changed. Insanity program provides you with a diet, but it’s more science fiction than reality, I’m guessing normal people don’t eat anything close to what they say in that menu, let alone the 6-8 cooked meals a day routine…
However, keeping a diet is KEY. As a rule of thumb it’s 20% workout and 80% diet.
Keep in mind that the INSANITY workout is incredibly intense. If you’re seriously overweight, consult your doctor before attempting that because you’ll pass out/get heart attack after the first 20 minutes.
Keep Your Mind In The Game
It’s hard to stay motivated and believe me I know it. Force yourself to want it, wake up and while you’re washing your face think about the workout you’re going to do and how amazing you’ll look after it. Working out shoots endorphins in the brain (similar to sex, food and coke) so, as long as you stick to it, it will become addictive in the long run.
There you have it, 5 reasons why it’s worth it to get in shape and a really easy to follow “get in shape and lose some weight” plan that’s going to get you results as long as you’re forever hungry.
