uh oh..it’s that nasty four letter word..DIET.
Wanna look and feel good?
Abs are made in the kitchen and if you’re like me, very food-centric,
then you will find this a fun and exciting challenge.
A good body is said to be trained through 80% diet and 30% excercise.
But what does diet mean? It’s a nasty little word that pops up in
almost every commercial and advertisement. Diet is the way we eat,
that’s all. When we retrain ourselves to think about a diet as the way
we eat we can stop feeling so restricted and bad about ourselves when
we do eat unhealthy. There are many diets out in the world that make
the same sort of promise: to look good and improve yourself. This
positive message is often taken to the extreme when we follow fad
diets and don’t pay close enough attention to our nutrition and our
Your body will tell you what it needs if you listen (and no, you don’t
need a Big Mac or that 24oz steak). Now, sometimes with food cravings
your body can be telling you it needs one thing when it’s craving
another. For example if you crave chocolate all the time, it could
mean your body needs magnesium. Or I used to crave peanut butter
because I wasn’t getting enough protein.
So you want to know what to eat and when to eat it? Well…I hate to tell you, but every body is different and what works for me may or may not work for you. I am still trying to find what works for me. I know fad diets don’t work long term and I know starvation is not the answer. I am still learning and I am excited to grow and learn and hear about others trials and errors.
So what diet has been success for you and what diet would you never do again?
