When you love eating, losing those extra kilos or shedding that stubborn fat becomes a huge struggle. I know that everyone hates even the mere idea of a diet, but since you want to get fit and in shape, you go on a diet anyway. And going on a diet means abandoning an entire major food group (read: pizza, cheeseburger, fries, cupcakes and what not!) you normally prefer eating.
Fret not! You can get in shape whilst eating your favorite food. Yes, it’s possible. I never gave up on my favorite food and still managed to get in shape. You can too.
First of all, you need to make your mind. You have to set a goal for yourself and be determined to achieve it. Just remember, you are doing this for you and not anyone else. Your body goals should be realistic and not influenced by those of your best friend or a VS model. So, once you have made up your mind, you start taking steps to come closer towards your set goal. You exercise and make notable changes in your diet which for you means no pizza and no cupcakes. The exercise part is already tough and the diet part makes the whole thing a torture. But, let me remind you again, you don’t have to stay away from bae (read pizza). If I can do it, so can you.
The key is to eat in moderation. Want to eat a cheeseburger or some fries? Go ahead. All you have to do is eat small portions.
Diets always have a negative approach. You starve yourself and stop eating your favorite food. You always feel hungry and are never satisfied. In the end you give in to your cravings and you’re back to square one.
Honestly, to get a diet to work, you don’t have to starve yourself or give up your favorite food. Have small portions of those delicious things you love eating. Treat yourself after every few days of exercise and don’t forget that the key is moderation. Also, you should never overeat. Ever. Make sure you’re doing extra crunches and squats for that slice of cake you ate at the office party (those abs don’t come easy).
So, shed those extra kilos, kick that stubborn fat whilst eating your favorite food and stay happy cos’ HAPPINESS IS YOU.
