Confused by all of the health and fitness advice you see posted just about everywhere? You are not alone. I mean who isn't confused by No Carbs, No Sugar, Fruit only, just eat cabbage soup, sprinkle this on your food and you will shrink a size, Juice cleanse, Paleo diet, HCG diet, 1200 calorie a day diet, and so on and so on.........What the H~E~ Double hockey sticks are we supposed to eat! I seriosuly see things about these posted evry single day and am quite frankly getting sick of it. Who has time to read it all, let alone try to process and understand it all?
What should we do Mindy, you may ask. THINK SIMPLE. Eat foods that are not processed, food that comes from nature not the conveyer belt. Eat in moderation. keep your meals smaller and more frequent. By the time you are starving your metabolism is already slowing down. When this happens your body starts to fuel itself by eating away at your muscle (totally a cruel joke played on us by nature). If you fulfill a craving and eat or drink something on the "unhealthy" side just get back on track. I donut will not make you gain back the 10 lbs you just lost but 1 donut a day or 10 donuts in 1 day will. Take responsibility for what you put in your mouth. Recognize that just because no one saw you eat it, doesn't mean it doen't count. You can tell everyone how well your eating and excersizing but the proof will be in your jeans.......when they don't fit!
Just remember that healthy is a lifestyle and the only way to keep it up is to KEEP IT SIMPLE!!!!
