January 1st isn’t too far away.
On this fateful day, millions of busy moms around the world will take up an activity destined to keep them overweight, out of shape and unhappy: Running.
Sometime between December 25th and January 1st, most moms experience a moment of guilt.
Perhaps it’s when they dish up a second (or third) helping of turkey and potatoes during Christmas dinner… or when they eat the last Santa sugar cookie they made with their kids — or grab their tenth piece of candy on Boxing day.
Most likely, though, it’s when they wake up on December 31st and realize that, while the kids are growing up fast, they still look the same as last year.
No matter the catalyst, it’s is never a good feeling. But it often inspires action and a decision:
“I’m going to start running!”
This is a common New Year’s Eve declaration as moms resolve to get in shape and make the coming year better — and healthier — than the last.
For the first few weeks of January, women all around the world wrap up warm and hit the streets running.
That’s when it starts to go downhill…
The follow-through rate for New Year’s Resolutions is 4%.
The follow-through rate for people who take up running is even lower.
And there’s a very simple reason: It’s is a horrible form of exercise that doesn’t help you lose weight!
Why Running Is The WORST Form Of Exercise To Lose Weight
“What’s the big deal with running? After all, millions of people run?”
When people decide to get in shape, running is often their go-to. Many moms believe that, because they have limited time to exercise, running will get them the most bang for their buck.
And why wouldn’t they? Isn’t this what we’re taught in P.E. class? And running must be effective if so many fitness magazines are dedicated to this form of exercise, right? Wrong!
The truth is, most people that opt to take up running don’t have all the facts.
Here’s why you should NEVER go running again.
Running is the single least effective form of exercise if your goal is to lose weight.
Losing weight is about calories. If you burn fewer calories than you eat, you will lose weight. It’s that simple.
Running for one hour burns just 408 calories.
Let’s put that into perspective: Two slices of pizza have 570 calories. If you eat two slices of pizza, it would take almost 90 minutes of running to burn it off!
One pound of fat equals 3,500 calories. That means you’d need to run for 8 hours and 34 minutes to burn off just ONE pound of fat!
That’s the equivalent of running TWO MARATHONS — just to lose one pound of fat.
Does that seem effective to you?
How To Burn 3,800% more fat than jogging
If you want to get into amazing shape jogging clearly isn’t the answer. So what is?
An underground fitness researcher from Toronto asked himself this same question.
After 15 years of research, studies and setbacks, he has uncovered a brand-new method called EPOC.
EPOC is a new form of exercise that you can do…
•in the comfort of your own home.
•with ZERO equipment.
And it burns 3800% more calories than running!
It’s being called “The laziest way to lose weight.” That’s because it only takes 6 minutes of exercise each day to produce results.
Yes, 6 minutes a day.
He says that “Most people who want to lose weight are working TOO HARD for the results that they want.”
He claims it only takes 6 minutes a day to ignite the EPOC effect and that once you’ve ignited the EPOC effect, you can’t help but lose weight.
If you want to lose 10, 20 or even 30 pounds, all you need is one intense 6-minute workout per day.
This 6-minute workout stimulates your body in such a way that you will burn calories for 38 HOURS after you’ve finished it.
Now that’s an effective form of exercise!
