Did you know that you can actually lose around your middle (tummy and hips) without calorie-counting, dieting or juicing?
I don’t think I’ve ever counted calories, never been on a diet and only juiced to ‘support’ healthy eating.
What’s more, I enjoy my treats. If I want a cake, I’ll have it but then get back to the healthy stuff. If I want a glass of wine, it doesn’t count as being ‘sinful’. If I want to juice some vegetables, I know that I’m juicing the ‘real’ things.
So, I eat food and usually quite a lot of it. I make sure that I eat plenty of vegetables, fruit, lean protein (fish and meat), sweet potatoes, coconut milk/oil, nuts, seeds, nut butters, wholegrains, legumes, porridge, eggs, cheese (Feta is lovely), smoothies, juices, health bars (I make my own blueberry ones), and much more.
I don’t stuff myself at meal times and I don’t punish myself by dropping to 500 calories three times a week.
Oh, and I exercise. I keep active and I train with weights plus my 12-minute metabolic workouts. You see, I don’t need to spend hours in a gym or go jogging for an hour on the road. I tend to do sprint intervals, which works much more effectively for keeping fit.
I’m not perfect of course. Like I said, I enjoy my treats and sometimes I drink beer (not often). Sometimes, I have rest days and sit at my laptop on my bottom. Hey, it’s part of life and you shouldn’t beat yourself up too much. Just get back on track without dwelling on it.
I have a healthy lifestyle about 80% (maybe more) of the time and this is what happens to my waistline.
It’s good isn’t it? And I will never count calories, go on a diet or rely on juices to support my ‘healthy’ weight loss.
19 years in the fitness industry as a qualified instructor means I can actually give good advice – advice that works for people 100% of the time when they take action. I won’t diagnose – I’ll leave that to the medical professionals.
