Is Daily Functional Fitness For You

Is Daily Functional Fitness For You

This is an update of an article I shared about 2 years ago. At that time I have lost a little over 50 pounds. Now it is a little over 100 pounds so I thought I would update this article and share it with those that might have missed it the first time around.

Long ago I decided that daily Functional Fitness was going to be the way for me to go if I was to exercise and stay in any kind of shape at all. I adjusted to a Ketogenic lifestyle that includes a lot more whole foods and I use functional fitness as my exercise program. As a side effect and without effort on my part other than the above, I have dropped a tad over 100 pounds that needed to go.

When I had my annual physical the doctor discovered through the blood work that I had a health issue that needed to be addressed. The pounds had to go in the fastest possible time without putting a strain on my health in general. That made it extra easy to make the changes. I have more pounds to drop (the curse of being a chef) and I plan to share with you what I do so perhaps if you want to drop a few pounds or just want to add a little Daily Functional fitness to your life, you will join me.
