This is day 0 of the first edition of the book 2 Weeks to Health, a 2-week course designed to kick start a healthier life. The expanded and reworked second edition is set to be released in the summer of 2018.
“Sometimes you have to dive in head first.” – Admiral McRaven
There is no easy way to improve your health or to lose weight. There are tricks, shortcuts, fad diets, or pills that can change your life more than your own will and efforts can. 2 Weeks to Health is a 14-day crash course in how to change your life by giving you the information you need to lose weight, get fit, and live a healthier life. But I warn you, this is not a way to “lose weight quick”. It is a tool for you to use if you are serious about living a healthier life, and it will likely be one of the most difficult yet rewarding things you have ever done. Are you ready for a challenge?
Great! I need you to pick up this book every day for the next two weeks and read one chapter per day. Each day is a different lesson in how to live a healthier life, but you won’t be done for the day when you put down this book. Most days will be interactive, I will need you to apply what you learn in this course to your everyday life, so expect to dedicate a bit of time to this course, and to your health. At the end of the day, this challenge is all about you! I want to give you the tools to reach your health goals, whatever they may be.
But who am I? My name is Scott Van Hoy, a certified fitness trainer with a primary focus on nutrition and weight loss. In 2015 after a few family members set weight loss goals for themselves, I started writing down everything that I believed would help them reach their goals. The result was 15 articles that I posted to an online blog. These articles are what now makes up this book, with a couple years of refinement. The more I learn the more I’ll perfect this 2-week challenge. Today, my website which is still called 2weekstohealth.com is an ever growing health and fitness information source that welcomes guest writers and community involvement. The more it grows the more I learn, and the more I realize that the basics of living a healthier life can be learned in just two weeks with dedicated practice.
If you are serious about living a healthier life, I hope you take the time over the next 14 days to complete this challenge. Learning about health and fitness drastically improved my life, and I know it will help you as well. Tomorrow (day 1) is all about mental preparation. So prepare to prepare for one of the best things you can do for yourself, improving your health.
