MARK: Hi! I'm Mark Perry from BuiltLean.com
and today

I'm going to discuss the differences between

weight control, or maintaining your
body composition,

And also kinda weight loss, and changing your body.

And I, discussed this with you cuz' I
think it's a very important

point that often times I see people don't
really understand,

and so, when it comes to maintenance,
it's kind of a beautiful thing.

If you're maintaining where you are at, well that
means to me, it's essentially your body weight,

is in kind of a narrow range, lets
just say a five pound range.

And, the beauty of maintaining your body
or your health is that you don't have to exercise

that intensely, right? You can essentially
work out three times a week

as long as it's sufficiently intense,
as long as you're eating decently,

and you'll be totally fine, you'll be able
to maintain your personal fitness and how you look

and feel. And so, what I mean by eating decently,
you're essentially eating roughly

the number of calories that you burn each day.

So let's just say you're a 180 pound guy,
you're working out three times a week,

you have a sedentary job, you might be burning
less than 2500 calories,

if you eat 2500 calories, you should be fine,

you shouldn't be gaining or losing any weight,
just stay the same.

Our bodies are homeostatic organisms
that are resistant to change,

which is one reason it's so hard to change them.

Which brings me to the next topic, which is, you know
kinda weight loss or changing your body.

And so, it's extremely hard

to change your body because they
are resistant to change.

It takes, in my opinion, it takes a lot of your time
your effort and and it requires

a plan,

number one, or requires a goal, number two,
and it requires number three,

a reason that goal's very compelling to you.

Again, those three things I think are important
if you're looking to change your body

and you really have to make it a priority in your life
so as you're watching this video

where are you at? Are you maintaining your physique
and your health which is totally cool,

that's kinda where I've been for a long time

or are you putting in a lot of your time and effort
and making it a priority in your life

to change your body? Whether it's building muscle,
losing fat, you know,

improve your cardio capacity, whatever it may be,
and so,

I hope this kind of concept we discussed with
you has been helpful

and you've kinda, you're thinking about where
you are right now,

and essentially where you are going in the future.

So thank you very much for watching, and again,
if you've more questions I will answer them.
