Calories…Calories…Calories…

50-wine[1]There are so many people whom, when they embark on any weight loss programme tend to focus purely on how many calories they are permitted. More than that, they tend to focus on how they can fit those calories around the types of foods they wish to eat. Specifically junk food.

 

My programme is all about healthy eating and in the correct portions for your specific body composition. It doesn’t mean total starvation or anything like it. It’s all about eating nutritiously and in the right quantities whilst actually enjoying the process. If you’re the type of person who wants to lose weight whilst looking at what “bad things” you can have in the way of “goodies,” then my programme is not for you. I don’t believe in a person “feeling guilty” over what they’ve eaten. I believe in focussing on you and not what pleasure you believe “treat” food or alcohol can give you.

 

I don’t believe in a programme that will give you the idea that you can use your calorific intake for “any food” because in that case people are tempted to use those calories for say a burger meal and a bottle of wine. Where’s the nutritional value in that? And although you’ve blown your calorific intake on both of these foods you may not necessarily gain weight because these are the only two items you’ve eaten all day.

 

You have eaten, but at the end of the day you’ve still just eaten “JUNK.” There’s absolutely no nutritional value in these items. Therefore why would you want to live life like that?
