Like many of you, I really want to lose weight. For me, the hardest part has been getting moving. Being a blogger and a writer, I spend a lot of my time sitting at a desk and sometimes losing track of the time. Sitting on your butt really isn’t the best way to get moving. For me, aerobic DVDs are some of the best ways to get me motivated. Also, how can you not be motivated looking at some of the tough trainers, especially the a certain lady who has a kick butt, supermodel-like body. I mean, who wouldn’t want to look like that? Some of the recipes she promotes also look and taste pretty amazing.
It all looks good until you look at the exercise program itself. I mean, how can you not feel intimidated seeing half-crow pushups, lunge choppers, hack squats, and Russian twists? I mean, I’m not in shape to push any crows or twist any Russians. Let alone hack my squat. All joking aside, I need to lose weight and get in much better shape to even be able to consider doing some of these exercises. Doing them in front of other people is definitely not happening either. I’m self conscious enough about my body.
I want to lose weight without any gimmicks, high priced boxed meals, or scary exercise programs that will make me quit before I even begin. I want something that will help me lose weight and is confident enough about the program to provide free samples of their products. Anyone else with me here?
Well, recently I learned about a pretty cool diet called the #CoreUnDiet. After watching a short video (about a 1 1/2 minutes long) that explains why diets really cause weight gain, I was floored. I recommend taking a look, this short video is VERY educational.
I think I’m personally going to save silly exercises I can’t do for another day or for when I want to lose weight and want to keep staying in shape. For now, I am going to try an undiet. If you would like to join me on this fun journey, make sure to check out the #CoreUnDiet and request free samples today.

Sweet thanks I’m gonna have to look into the UnDiet. I have been yo-yoing for a few years and I love the aerobics dvds but they do get boring.
David Bill says
I’d definitely like to join the undiet – maybe I should just take the advice of friends and just step away from the table. Is that a diet too?

I loved this! I am also completely intimidated by the amount of fad diets and exercise programs out there. You could waste so much money buying them all and how many of them actually work?? Thanks for this…I really appreciate the info. I want to be healthy for my little guy!! I want to be around to watch him grow!! Xo
Inspiring post which resounds with me too! I’m looking into undiet today thanks to this post. Even the name helps (the word ‘diet’ should be banned!!!)
No more looking back to what diet I did in 2006 or what fad I followed in 2010…
Today is the day I start getting healthy :O
I think that using moderation is the best way to lose weight. Most diets are just fads.

When ever I read about this undiet it is very varied. One post says that it is good for you and another site says that it is bad for you. I don’t know what to believe.
md kennedy says
Sounds so sensible! But, I have to say I’ve never heard of a twisting Russian before!

it is all about motivation actually
Mary Williams says
I’ll definitely have to check this out. I’m so done dieting and recently decided I was going to focus on serving sizes, eating healthier options and exercise to get the weight off.
Melissa C. says
I really think that the many diets I have done in my life have done some damage to my body. It seems like they have only made it easier for my body to gain more weight as soon as I’m done. This sounds really interesting.

I really need to lose some weight so I appreciate all this information. Thank you for sharing
I use Xbox Fitness to work out I mean I know it probably isn’t doing much for weight wise, but I definitely feel the endurance improvement and free Achivements! XD I’d dieted about 2 times to lose ~ 40 pounds and just got tired of it. But i haven’t gained or lost weight in about 2 years so i guess im doing good. I’m still about 40 overweight though
