Eating. For some people the hard part of getting healthy/fit/skinny is making time to exercise, but for most people that is easy compared to the fight with food. If you know me you know I LOVE TO EAT. This is not a secret, I tell everyone. I exercise just so I can eat more. Life is too short to not eat that piece of cake or the bacon cheeseburger, but I know I need to counteract my calorie intake with calories burned. It does not have to be difficult and it does not have to be a constant diet. I tell everyone who ask me about eating and dieting to keep it simple, just keep track. Start a food journal or download the MyFitnessPal app onto your phone. It is pretty simple to set up and even better if you have a Fitbit to connect to the app. Now just log the food you eat. The app will tell you when you have had enough to eat for the day. Now it is possible if you are not working out and you are just trying to eat your calories, you are going to be hungry. If you exercise and eat (and drink your water), then it is easier and you are not starving or forcing yourself to give up good food you want. Some people enjoy fasting and it seems to be the trend right now, but here is the thing….it’s a trend. Give it a couple of months and it will be in the diet history books with all the other diets people tried for a little while and loved, but then tried something new and it was gone. You are eating to fuel your body. If you think of your body like a car and the food is the gas, what happens if you put too much gas in the tank? It is going to spill out. Put enough gas in the car to get you to where you need to go. You can always fill up again later. So go exercise so you can eat that Reese cup and not feel guilty.
