The fitness universe always talks about Nutrition and Exercise as if these are the only two options for getting in shape.
Want to lose the post-pregnancy padding? Nutrition & Exercise.
Want to look 10 years younger? Nutrition & Exercise.
Want to make everyone jealous at the high school reunion? Nutrition & Exercise.
Whatever happened to good old Sleep and Stretching? That’s right. Regular sleep and staying limber are just two ways you can take advantage of the Crisscross Effect to lose weight.
The Crisscross Effect is what happens when life’s building blocks hinder or help each other.
Weight loss is just a single part of your dynamic, intertwined life. You also might have kids, a demanding boss, car problems, a nagging cough, magazine subscriptions, sports teams, fishing trips, traffic, high blood pressure, music practice, cranky relatives, noisy streets, babysitting, card night and the daily comics to contend with. Weight loss has a real impact on – and is impacted by – all of these and more.
