Let me just put it plainly…
In order to LOSE weight, you must change your diet.
One reason why I keep writing is to DISPEL rumors about your health. We need to be informed – and with so many lies floating around the web, it’s hard to get a handle on what we actually need to do to become healthy…I’m talking long-term here!!
One rumor I hear A LOT is that some people who work out consistently (daily) think they can just eat whatever they want….and they still expect to lose weight.
Why That Isn’t True
Sorry to burst a few bubbles – that isn’t true. At. All.
First, it is very easy to overestimate your workout and calories burned…
And it’s just as easy to underestimate the calories you eat at a single sitting.
The problem is just that – we don’t know how many calories we burn (or eat), usually. You CAN keep track, but it isn’t always accurate.
Plus, some of us view working out as a chore…and sometimes those chores are followed by rewards, or treats …
Don’t Eat Your Reward
Have you ever had an amazing workout, only to think you should reward yourself?
That, by itself, is okay! If you’ve recently conquered a mountain, you DO deserve a treat…
BUT – do not think of food as a reward! That is the opposite of how we want to be thinking! If our ultimate goal is weight loss, food shouldn’t be a reward!
An awesome workout does NOT mean order a pizza later!
Instead, “treat” yourself with something else…a new outfit…a night out…a manicure, etc.
There are a million ways to reward yourself, and not a single one must include food.
If you want to stop craving desserts and treats (and stop thinking of them as rewards!), and start to crave vegetables instead, check out my review of an awesome hypnosis program. It’s gotten rave reviews by other Cabbage Soupers, and I know it will be helpful to plenty of you!
What do you do to reward yourself every time you get a step closer to your goals?
To Your Health,
