Kissing can be described in a variety of ways; romantic, loving, intense, and passionate. It can also be described as awkward, boring, and gross. Hopefully for you it’s more along the lines of the first set of descriptions.
The kiss I am referring to for better health is not the actual act of kissing itself but instead, a principle that first came into existence in 1960….. the KISS Principle.
KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID
THE KISS PRINCIPLE
KISS is an acronym for keep it simple stupid.
The acronym is used by many in the United States Air Force.
No implication of stupidity; just the opposite.
Intelligent and effective systems so simple they are misconstrued as stupid.
Simplicity should be a key goal in design, unnecessary complexity should be avoided.
The KISS principle has been the key to huge successes over the years for many software engineers and developers. A common problem in both of these professions is their tendency to over complicate problems. The KISS principle has them take a problem, break it down into smaller pieces that they can understand, and then implement a solution.
“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.”
~ Albert Einstein
When it comes to weight loss, getting rid of unwanted body fat, toning up, feeling better and healthier, and looking our best, we have a tendency to over complicate the process.
With so much information available and at our finger tips through online resources, magazines, television shows, clinics, and recommendations we receive from family and friends, it’s information overload.
Don’t eat after 5pm, eat for your blood type, count your calories, cut out carbs from your diet, take multiple supplements for weight loss, energy, and increasing muscle tone. The list goes on and on.

To successfully achieve any of your health and wellness goals, implement the following equation:
SIMPLE STEPS + CONSISTENCY + TIME = RESULTS
Simple steps completed consistently over time is the recipe for success whether it’s to lose weight, increase muscle tone, increase your energy, or overall happiness and fulfillment.
Consistency, not complexity.
If you want to begin to see real results for your efforts, ditch all the numerous ideas, theories, processes, and systems you’re currently using and just keep it simple.
KISS FOR WEIGHT LOSS
* Drink more water
* Eat fresh foods, not frozen or packaged
* Eat more fruits and veggies
* Stop eating white bread, rice, pasta and potatoes
* Exercise 30 minutes a day
KISS FOR TONING UP
* Do weight training 4 times per week
* Eat more protein
* Eat less sweets
* Sleep 6-8 hours per night
KISS FOR HAPPINESS
* Exercise regularly
* Be grateful. Focus on what you have versus what you don’t have
* Forgive others, no one is perfect
* Give more than your receive
Stop over complicating it. Keep it simple, be consistent, give it time, and you will have all it is you want.
