Sometimes people think that in order to lose a substantial amount of weight and fast, their best bet is to starve themselves when in fact that is one of the most dangerous ways to lose weight. By starving yourself or triggering starvation mode your metabolism begins to slowly shut down and now your body is fighting to contain calories so that you don’t really starve. Eventually, that runs out and now you’re extremely hungry. Most people cave as soon as the stomach growling kicks in which leads to immense over eating that you now have no control over.

All in all, was starving yourself really worth it? You’re just going to end up caving. So, why do people starve themselves? Because, they think it’s a faster way to lose weight with lack of exercise. Here’s a solution, try cleaning up the way you eat instead of having fried foods try having it baked, instead of eating potato chips have some kale chips. By changing the way you eat to cleaner smaller portions it doesn’t matter how frequently you eat. You’ll eventually start seeing changes in your body that you’d never have seen before with failed attempts at starvation. Your body is your machine and just like a machine, it needs fuel in order to work. Think about it. DON’T STARVE YOURSELF!

Nearly everyone around the world’s New Year’s resolution is to be healthier, go to the gym more, cut out bad foods from their diets, and the list goes on. But why do people seem to always fall off of their resolutions? That’s an easy one, not everyone falls off, but majority of people do and that’s because to them it’s just a resolution and nothing more. In order to be committed to a healthier you, you have consider this transition a Lifestyle change and not just a resolution.  Try to cross that word out of your vocabulary because wanting to be healthy should not be a temporary feeling, it should be a permanent change.

How to transition from living a normal and unhealthy lifestyle to living a healthy and fulfilling life:

  • Don’t put off what you can do today for tomorrow

Tomorrow NEVER comes in the world of procrastination. Just because you may have had an unhealthy breakfast doesn’t mean your lunch and dinner has to be unhealthy too. Tomorrow doesn’t justify a clean slate, you do. Start eating healthy right now and you’ll begin to fell better.

  • Don’t give up everything all at once

If you regularly eat unhealthily then start of slow. This is NOT a diet (cross that word out of your vocabulary too). There is no rush in a lifestyle change. Start off by eliminating things from your everyday regimen and replacing it with healthier options for instance, something that I eliminated from my regimen is soda which is full of sugar and high in calories and I replaced it with zero-calorie seltzer water. It’s bubbly and satisfying. Try it.

  • Make time for home cooked meals

Eating out and ordering in are easy and convenient to most people, but it can be damaging to staying on a healthy regimen. By making home cooked meals you have complete control over everything that you eat and most importantly WHAT GOES INTO THE FOOD YOU EAT.

  • Meal-prep time

What does it mean to meal prep? Meal prepping means to prepare meals for a whole week. This helps prevent you from eating out and snacking throughout the day because you have your meals already there and waiting for you. Also, invest in some really good tupperware because when you prepare food for a week you might need to keep the rest of the week’s food in the freezer and you DON’T want your food to get freezer burn (some good brands are Rubbermaid and Ziploc).

Try some of these tips when you’re ready to transition and I guarantee it will be easier to stay motivated. If no one else is going to motivate you, then be your own motivation!!

Good Morning

Good Morning, around this time 10am most people are already up, and if you have the time you should ALWAYS eat breakfast. but before you even think about eating anything remember this. It is always in your best interest to have a glass of water no later than 10 minutes after waking up, that way […]

Good Morning, around this time 10am most people are already up, and if you have the time you should ALWAYS eat breakfast. but before you even think about eating anything remember this. It is always in your best interest to have a glass of water no later than 10 minutes after waking up, that way you jumpstart your metabolism for the day. It is commonly said that you need at least 8 glasses or as I’ve heard half your body weight in ounces in water everyday. Then you eat your breakfast.

 

SECRET:

By having the cup of water before you eat you already feel kind of full, and you won’t end up overindulging in food :) shh.

Empire!!!

I procrastinate, and I procrastinate HARD. But, it’s even harder to get things done when on Wednesday nights at 9pm Empire is on FOX 5 and little did I know that we were getting an extra hour of Empire I had to shut down all my electronics and tune in to this crazy show. Who doesn’t love to watch Cookie and her crazy yet genius antics, Jamal and his strength as a homosexual and his amazing vocals, Andre and his bipolar disorder, but still fighting for a company (that I kind of think he should run), Hakeem and his rap bars and love for older women, and finally Lucious and his love for the business more than his love for his family. This show is incredible and I made this gif on makeagif.com where I uploaded a video from YouTube and cropped the video within this site. This was to showcase my excitment for last night’s episode. In the wise words of Sam Smith, “I know I’m not the ONLY one!”

WHEN I FOUND OUT EMPIRE WAS 2 HOURS LONG!!!
