I hate the word ‘diet’, don’t you? Dieting isn’t an action, it’s a state-of-mind where you purposely torture yourself. Right here and now, we are no longer “dieting.”
I have developed a habit over the past 10 years of making healthier choices when it comes to food, 70-80% of the time. To establish some credibility, I’ve been both overweight and lean in the past 10 years. I use to eat anything I wanted and the only reason I wasn’t huge was because I played a ton of sports. In college, I stopped playing sports and I gained the freshman 20. After my first fall semester at 18 years old, I changed my life for the better by watching what I ate and going to the gym 4-5 days a week. Since then, I’ve had moments where I stop following my rules and I gain weight every single time. So, I KNOW what habits lead to weight gain and which ones lead to weight loss & maintenance. I would like to share with you my plan for your healthiest, most sun-shiney self.
First, you must understand that we are all different. The same things that work for me might not work for you. However, like I’ve said in a past blog- there is a proven method to accomplishing almost anything! It’s best to learn the system first and then tweak it as necessary for the best results. The foundation for a healthier body starts with two things: your activity level and what you eat. Duh, right, like you haven’t heard that 200 times but I know it’s overwhelming with all the different diet and workout plans out there. For now, I want you to clear your mind of the clutter and allow me to lay a simple foundation for a healthier you.
Some simple pointers…
