It’s okay to give into carvings. Losing weight and keeping it off means balance, not going without treats for the rest of your life.
If you know how to control your cravings, they aren’t such a bad thing. It’s more beneficial to your diet (and your overall sanity) to give in to hunger cravings from time to time.
A life without your favorite foods now and again is no fun… Cravings are more satisfying when we indulge in them only occasionally.
When you wait to eat something that you savor, like a meal from your favorite restaurant or a homemade dessert, you’ll be much more motivated to carry on with your healthy diet.
Think of cravings as a reward for a job well done. Don’t give into them all of the time. (3fatchicks.com)
It starts in the kitchen
If you want to get the most out of your workout, then you mustn’t skip meals.
The food you eat before your workout will prepare your body for a strenuous workout and maximize your effort and results.
On the other hand, a healthy post-meal will refuel your body and aid in recovery after a hard workout.
Remember that healthy weight loss takes place in the gym and the kitchen.
“A holiday miracle would be still fitting into my favorite pants after the holidays”, said my friend the other day.
If you gain a little weight during the holidays, don’t dwell on it and be stressed about it, just go back to your clean-eating habits TODAY (don’t wait for a Monday or next week to start eating healthy), commit to your fitness routine, for example, three days a week and make a weekly meal plan.
Don’t try to make too many changes at once, because you can get frustrated and throw in the towel.
It’s not always easy
I eat healthy for almost eight years now and I can honestly say that clean eating doesn’t cause me any stress. It is as tasty as you make it up to be.
However, today I was just a girl who stood in front of the salad with avocado dressing, asking it to be a Kaiserschmarren (also known as “Emporers Trifle”) with vanilla cream. 😀
Sometimes I’m really tired of food having calories, don’t you? 🙂
