The food you put into your body affects you everyday of your life not just now but in the future. It contributes to you feeling grumpy, how your body stores fat, whether you crave and what you crave, whether you can concentrate, whether you feel tired or full of energy.
It’s a vicious cycle. The more crap you put into your body, the crapper your body will feel. You feel like shit, eat more shit and end up feeling even shittier. Hey ho, around and around you go.
If you’re serious about losing weight and/or getting healthier, you really need to get over the BS your self-discipline is feeding you and remind yourself of a few hard facts about food:
Food Fact 1
Food is one of your body’s basic needs. Crap In = Crap Out
Food Fact 2
A variety and balance of foods is needed to keep you healthy.
Food Fact 3
It’s YOU that is in control of what you eat and no-one else.
Food Fact 4
If you eat too much and unhealthily, you will end up fat, unhealthy, lacking in energy and unable to keep up with the world. There’s a heck of a lot of truth in the saying “we are what we eat”.
Food Fact 5
Your body needs a certain amount of calories each day (depending on whether you are a man or a women, height, weight, etc.). Eat more than your body needs and you’ll get bigger. Eat less than your body needs and you’ll get smaller.
That’s it as far as food is concerned. It doesn’t matter what faddy food craze or strict diet you follow if you don’t face these facts you are highly likely to fail (take a medical disclaimer moment here if you’re feeling offended.)
