Step 1: Stop dieting.
Step 2: Stop counting calories.
Step 3: Shop the outskirts of the store eg. produce section, seafood, meat, dairy (eggs & cheese) sections.
Step 4: Read the ingredients if you must buy canned, boxed, or bagged food. If you have to google any ingredients or use more than one hand to count them, don’t buy it.
Step 5: Cook your meals using fresh whole ingredients like leafy green vegetables, squashes, meats or seafoods, using things like real butter instead of chemical cocktails.
Bonus bit o’ common sense:
We’ve been playing this eat less, exercise more, lowfat/nofat/hearthealthywholegrains game since I was a tot. Diabesity is up, not just adults, but our children, proving to me that it is true, you can’t out exercise a bad diet.
Think about it.
It’s not that all of us morbidly obese are “non-compliant”, it’s more like weight loss is not a one size fits all. If you’re tired of being sick and tired, forget about the hype, just eat real food. Stop fearing the dietary fat from natural sources and well, your body just stops storing fat by proxy.
