I have a confession to make… I absolutely love snickers candy bars and Popeyes! I could probably eat them almost everyday if I could! I don’t know a person on the planet that does not have one guilty pleasure, and I have two! I know horrible, but with that said… what is your weakness?
I’ve never been one to believe in “diets”. Quick fix schemes pertaining to fitness and food don’t rub me the right way. It is important to identify your weakness and not let it run you. For myself I can enjoy a meal at Popeyes or a Snickers candy bar every now in then because I do it in moderation. “Everything in moderation”, I always say. It’s simple.
1. Never eat till you’re full:
No one likes a tight tummy(Unless you have a six pack of course), so stop when your appetite is satisfied.
2. Everything in moderation:
It is not a crime to have a piece of cake. If you love sweets or whatever your weakness is, don’t deprive yourself. Cut down the serving size and frequency and enjoy yourself every now and then.
That body fat is not going to burn itself. Exercise daily and don’t forget to include resistance. Lean muscle allows you to burn calories even while you are sitting on the couch or at your desk.
4. Include a variety of food:
Make is a goal to love or at least like it all. Incorporate all the food groups from sweets to veggies. Try something new. If you are on the go, make it a point to try the healthy options on the menu. You’ll probably be surprised! More and more I am doing this and the food is more flavorful than you might think.
Although my weakness is Snickers and Popeyes, they do not dominate my life. Find out your weakness and tackle it with my helpful tips! I hope everyone had a great day!
Live. Love. Well & Fit.
