What if there was a proven strategy you could follow to lose fat and gain muscle? What if you didn't have to spend tons of money on an expensive gym membership or overpriced supplements to get the body you wanted?
Lose up to 8 pounds in the first week: Definitely. That's what I did.
Eat til you're full and satisfied: Totally. I eat as much as I want with no counting calories.
Gain lean muscle: Absolutely. I've dropped 1 body fat percentage every week on average.
Contrary to what you might think, you are not stuck with the current body that you have. With the right mindset and the right strategy, you can achieve your goals.
How do we transform our mindset? And, how do you know when you've found the right strategy for weight loss when there is so much noise in the fitness industry?
My name is Touger (pronounced 2 - Jur) and I am the founder of Tsusha.
At Tsusha, I share the latest research on behavioral modification, simple exercise methods and sustainable nutritional tips to help you get the body you want. I won't just share theories with you. I'm experimenting and testing everything and only share the stuff that really works.
If you've ever been frustrated by people telling you, "You just have to work harder," or "You just have to be more disciplined," then we're going to be good pals :) I don't think weight loss is primarily about willpower or determination. It is not about working harder. It's about working smarter.
For years, I struggled with my weight. As a young kid, my older brothers would tease me and call me, “fat.” I was the super sensitive one in the family so I would regularly respond by BEATING THEM DOWN WITH MY HUGE FISTS! Just kidding Most of the time, I just ran away and cried. Then in middle school I hit this thing called puberty and I lost a lot of the baby fat that I carried around as a kid. For pretty much all of my teen years I was lean and had an athletic build. That said, it was during this time that I developed a habit of eating horribly; donuts and cookies were and still are a particular vice of mine. Although I was eating poorly, my high teenage metabolism and regular physical activities at school and with friends, helped me to stay slim. Then college came around and it all changed. I spent less and less time doing physical activities and I continued to eat junk food so I gained weight. I entered college weighing 160 lbs feeling fit and athletic. I left weighing 185 lbs feeling soft and pudgy. Afterward, I went to Duke to get my Master’s degree and it was while living there that my wife and I did P90X. For those who don’t know, P90X is a 12 week video program of intense cardio and body weight workouts. After just 3 months, I went from 185 lbs of chubbiness to 165 lbs of lean muscle. But…it didn’t last. I gained the weight back in about a year. Since I’m a weirdo, I actually kept track of my weight from 2011 on a spreadsheet so you can see it for yourself.
This pattern kept happening over and over again for the next 5 years. I would lose weight then gain back even MORE. I hated it and to be honest, it caused some depression. Why couldn’t I change this? What was I doing wrong? What was wrong with me?
As others have seen my body transforming, they've asked, "Hey Touger, how are you doing that? How are you losing weight?" My full answer to that question can be found here on this blog. I'm sharing everything I'm eating, how I'm exercising, but most importantly, I'm sharing the psychology that has empowerd me on my weight loss journey. I'm not an expert. I'm just a fellow traveler sharing what I'm learning and implementing in my own life.
