30 Days of Motivation: Eat Clean, Look Lean

closet eaterI don’t know who we think we are fooling when we think we can get away with eating crappy food, or eating too much food, just because no one sees us. The only person you are really fooling is yourself.

Quit “acting” healthy and BE healthy. If you really want to get results this year, it’s time to be honest with yourself and deal with your food demons. It’s time to clean up your act because your food should look as lean and healthy as you want to look.

Come out of the closet

There are 2 signs someone doesn’t have control of their diet:

1. They workout all the time. Do you know someone who is constantly at the gym, yet still struggling with their weight? Maybe YOU are that person. Does that make you a bad person? No, it just means you are super disciplined with exercise – but it can also mean that you are not disciplined enough with your diet. If you manage your diet better, you could relax a little and not have to workout so much. To get the best results, you should be as disciplined in the kitchen as you are in the gym.

2. They are gaining weight, or not losing weight. You can complain all day long, or tell me all the reasons you are not losing weight, but weight loss comes down to one thing – calories in vs. calories out. And, 9 times out of 10, it’s not what you are doing but what you are eating. A simple fix is counting every calorie you eat for 7 days straight. If you lose weight, then you know you have been eating more than you thought.

This year, get control of your eating – so you can get control over your body.

    I stumbled across your blog today thanks to a Google search for “motivational quotes clean eating,” and I LOVE this! You have suggested ideas which I’ve already implemented as well as tips that I hadn’t before considered. Most of the time when I do a search like this, I end up reading pages full of “been there, done that” suggestions when I’m looking for something new, something different. That’s exactly what I (finally!) found in your blog. Thank you for a helpful, well-written article in which you are thinking outside the proverbial box. By far, the most motivating, refreshing ideas I’ve read in months, hands down.

    Hard truth! I have struggled with acne most of my life $ my weight fluctuates. I really need to consider that what I put in is because that is what I will get out. Plain as ABC. Hmmmm!

      I always say, “you reap what you sew, so sew healthy! Junk in, Junk out. Quality in, Quality out!” :)

    Wow, this really hit home for me. Most of the time I eat healthy, but too much. Eating healthy doesn’t help if I continue to not control my portions.

      I think a lot of people who workout eat healthy – they just eat too much. Believe me! I know!! I struggle with it too! SO MUCH!
