Eat More, Weigh Less?
"I HAVE TO LOSE THIS WEIGHT!!"
"I've been working out a lot and eating healthy but I'm still struggling to lose weight..."
First, how long have you been working out 'a lot' and eating healthy?
Second, what does "eating healthy" mean for you?
Lastly, working out a lot? What does that mean? 30 mins 6 x a week, or like an hour of cardio followed by an hour of HIIT or weights....6 x a week?
The later? working out waaaaaayyyy too much unless you're strategically training for the Olympics or a Bikini Comp.
GIRL, please stop.
You're not only overdoing it, you are (could be) doing detrimental things to your health. I know because it happened to me and I do not wish any of the consequences on anyone else.
I restricted calories & restricted myself from eating other nutrient dense foods.
I became obsessed with working out because that's what you did to lose weight.
I'll be the first to admit that I've had...
Over indulge Super Bowl weekend?
Feeling guilty for the sweet treats you consumed this weekend?
Perhaps you made a commitment to go the whole month of January with no booze & no sugars? And you were so happy you stuck to the commitment that you celebrated HARD this past weekend?
Totally get it. Same.
Instead of going on a 10 day juice cleanse, starving & being a hangry monster, I simply "crowd out" the toxins (bad foods/beverages/moral decisions) with real wholesome foods that not only aid in crowding out the bad, but aid in my digestion, mental clarity & boost my metabolism.
Because of digestive issues (yeast/bad bacteria overgrowth in my gut), I stick to a low carb lifestyle. The least amount of sugars entering your body, the better your belly will feel: little to no bloat! Whoohoo!
Sugar feeds cancer & these yeasts/bad bacteria, so I eat as low carb as possible-which means I eat a lot of vegetables! They're low calorie AND low...
