Why do you eat what you eat? Is it because you’ve been raised by parents eating a specific food, do you eat as you do because it’s socially acceptable, is it because your money stretches that bit further than most and you have a taste for a takeaway food on the daily?
It’s important you know what guides your food choices, that knowledge will give you a better handle on how to deal with urges and times you’re alone with that plate in sight. The reality is if you want to lose weight, eating junk won’t overly help that goal. You have a choice! Yes, you have the choice to eat whatever you want, from the most expensive of camel meat to the cheapest oven chips.
Do you want to be free or do you want to be balanced? Pick your road because if you want to be free and reach your set weight-loss goals you can, but it will likely take more hard work, sweat, blood and tears. A balanced approach is you coming to a point of conquering your desires, learning about and trying new foods, drinking a lot of water (smoothies and juicing included) and adapting to your new lifestyle.
Your body needs exercise just like it needs food. If you don’t exercise, travel to work by public transport or drive, sit down at work from 9am to 5pm and then crash out once you’re home…you are not getting enough exercise. Exercise keeps your motor running, eating the right foods keeps it moving for longer. You wouldn’t buy a Porche 911 and feed it palm oil and expect it to perform, likewise, you wouldn’t eat a box of KrispyKreme and expect to be able to run a 10k race.
The choice is, learn and adapt or remain unchanged in the heart. But your limbs will change whether by your choice or not.
