The skinny on the word “Diet”!

The word diet is such a horrible word. We take on “diets,” and we try to live a life that constricts us from things we love and enjoy.

We’ve all have had our moments with “diets” out there. With each trend, we tend to get a little more confused on how and why nothing is working, well, that’s because NO DIET will work. Each individual is so different from the next. Each of us has a different reaction due to our DNA, and we need different nutrients to exist and get us to our optimal body. You can’t follow anyone’s rule for their bodies DNA.

The only thing you should do if you are trying to lose weight – BURN MORE CALORIES THAN YOU TAKE IN!

That’s it! That’s the only trick! You’ll start to burn the stored fat you’ve been holding on to in your body instead of the extra calories you’d be consuming. I’m NOT saying STARVE yourself; your body NEEDS fuel for you to workout and maintain a
healthy lifestyle. But, we as humans typically eat much more than you need daily to fuel your body. You won’t burn the stored fat that you’ve been storing. Eat in moderation and portion control and burn more than you consume, you’ll definitely lose weight.

You’ll have to give up a few things, but everything in moderation is the best way to go about this.

  • Alcohol – inflames our bodies, acts like sugar, and will increase your weight if drank in large quantities and multiple times a week.
  • Overeating – You’ll have to eat in moderation. Don’t eat to be full! Don’t eat to eat! Think of food differently. Think of it has FUEL for your body.
  • Allergy restrictions – if you are allergic to something, please do not consume that product. It will wreak havoc on your system. You are causing inflammation, distress, diarrhea, bloating, and more depending on how bad your allergy is to your body.
  • Portion control – You’ll have to start paying attention to the quantity of how much you’re eating in a single meal. Overtime those “bites” add up.
