I have heard on more than one occasion that the key to losing weight is more about what you're putting in your mouth, than how much your body is moving. I heard O'Neal and Sunshine (from the last season of Biggest Loser) say that they were told on campus that it was 30% exercise, 70% food. I know after being at FC, and seeing what a difference just salt made on how you feel, it doesn't seem that far off.
I was reading in my Health magazine that the experts are now saying they want everyone to have 9 fruits and vegetables per day. I am personally thinking that the "experts" are the people who own and operate farmer's markets - but that might just be me. I like fruits and vegetables, so I honestly don't think this is outside the realm of reason for me. (can I count corn tortilla chips and salsa as vegetables? Then maybe Tuesday wouldn't have been so bad?) I just need to get my brain to work with me, and buy into the notion that I would rather have steamed broccoli than something with more calories. There are few guarantees in this life. One is that if you eat like crap, you won't lose weight. End of story. I could live on the elliptical machine, but if I don't make "smart and loving choices" (shout out to Jackie Warner for that gem) regarding my food consumption, it won't do a bit of good. Do I really want to bust my ass in the gym, just to undo it with what I eat? I think not.
What is your biggest food obstacle?
