You’re already starting the keto diet, you may or may not have had a run in with the keto flu and now someone else says you need to go to the gym more often and spend time and effort there too.
We’ve been there, and we know what went through your head, in fact we’ve written down a few lines which you must have said to yourself a few times:
“The low carbohydrate diet already requires me to make so many changes and now I have to add gyms and workouts to the list…”
“I hardly have enough time for myself after taking care of my family, friends and work, how do I find the time to put in 2 hours in the gym, not to mention the damn travel time it takes to go there….”
“I’m just too tired to go to the gym today”
“I’m too hungry and drained after gym, and I end up stuffing my face like a pig”
Did I get any of those right? (comment and let me know)
Yes It sounds far fetched when I say a 15 min workout is better than hours in the gym. You may wonder if there’s a catch..
the catch is, it’s cheaper and easier too.
People have been used to thinking that when it comes to working out, the more time one spends working out and the more fatigue one gets, the better the result would be and the better the body would feel.
This could not be further from the truth for your average man or women.
Hey, I used to be that gym rat at one time, I would spend at least 2 hours a day in the gym, doing all kinds of exercise, and getting tired everyday. Even though I ate a lot to help in my recovery after the workouts, I still used to be exhausted and it started affecting my productivity in other parts of life.
Yet, Even after workout out for those long hours everyday and following the instructor’s guidance during the workout, I still didn’t get the results I wanted.
Yes, I built some muscle, but they were always fatigued and still covered with an excess amount of fat.
No diet would work while working out this intensely, If I restricted food intake, I would feel exhausted and get crazy cravings in the middle of the day or when I was out and about with friends.
and many times…
I’d cave to the cravings and pig out on a chunk of cake, donuts, too many fruits, or custards,…
and I end up feeling like a horrible slob of a human being.
Here are a few common sense reasons why shorter, compact workouts are a better fit for you:
1. If you’re part of the “I just don’t have the time for it”. crowd
Our brains quickly calculate all the different variables of going to the gym. The clothes, the travel to and from the gym, the recovery time, the effects of fatigue, etc.
And in that split second we make the decision that the investment of our precious time simply isn’t worth the slow paced results of the hectic workout.
That ‘s much better when it’s just a 15 min intense workout in your own house, you don’t even need to use weights or equipment.
Hell If you’re worried about the extra laundry, do it while you’re naked 🙂
I’m sure you can find an extra 15 mins in your day, preferably in the morning right before you have a bath.
Plus our high intensity body weight only routine for beginners makes it very easy for you to stick to the schedule and make it an easy to follow habit.
2. It stops those crazy random food cravings and it makes the body automatically control your appetite
Under Normal gym situations, when you spend an hour or more working out, or doing cardio, or running, if you’re anything like me, you’ll fall into the “I deserve this food now” trap.
Face it, you’ve eaten lot’s of junk and sugar under the shamefully false pretense of: “I’ve worked so hard this week, so it’s okay if I cheat a little and have this little bit of sweet junk, alcohol, etc”
What most people don’t tell you is, that long workouts increase your need to replenish yourself and sends your body into hunger trauma mode. Where the increase in appetite makes you eat more than you need, This is fine if you are okay with working out for such long hours every day.
However, if you stop going to the gym for a month or so for any reason, guess what?…
…..that increased appetite doesn’t go away and end up putting on much more weight instead of losing it.
So starts the cycle of de-motivation once again, Yes I know you’ve been there if you’re reading this article.
Recent studies show that a short 15 min burst of high intensity exercise doesn’t give you the- “I DEMAND FOOD IMMEDIATELY!!!” response

Motivation and Faster Results duh!
Haven’t you noticed that most people need an internal drive or some form of motivation to workout?
You want that same energy motivation and energy, don’t you?
and because studies have shown that HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) increases cardio strength and muscle growth, and the accompanying higher metabolism makes your body cut through fat at a faster rate.
If you’re someone who actually enjoys spending hours in the gym, don’t get me wrong, please understand that you’re using the gym for its value as a therapeutic tool or for socializing, which is very good, but you won’t get the sustained results you wan’t.
Eventually the fatigue will push you to build a dependency on supplements or pills.
Where eating stops being fun and becomes a mundane calorie counting job.
Above and beyond all the science, with a high intensity workout habit, you’ll get the one thing everyone wants: Balanced health and a better body when you look at yourself in a mirror.
