"Even better, use cash instead and write down every single cent you spend on daily basis. I did this and I can’t begin to explain how it puts everything into perspective."
RIGHT ON THE MONEY, as usual. Having said that, let me make a suggestion for those 100 lb over weight people. It's actually exactly what you said above.
But -"WRITE DOWN EVERYTHING YOU EAT. EVERY THING. Then review it in thirty days."
You know how you had the epiphany about spending money by writing it down. Try it with FOOD. You will be shocked at how much JUNK we put into our bodies. And I don't know about you, but I don't work the fields from sunrise to sunset and therefore DO NOT EAT THREE MEALS A DAY. I generally just eat ONE meal a day. Lunch.
Anyway. Keep up the great work, as usual.
STAY SAFE, my friend.
That’s a good one Jim. Its absolutely true that writing these things down puts them in a new perspective.
Working out and going to the gym helps too. You burn calories and the more muscle you have the more calories get burned on daily basis by your own body. But just doing that alone will do little to get rid of pounds of fat if you’re overweight. You’ll be strong and feel good but the fat is still there.
Probably the best tip on losing weight I heard comes from something a famous actress said once, Jessica Biel. Her tip couldn’t be more simple but is effective: She just eats half a plate of food.
If you’re fat, unless you have a medical problem, the most common cause is that you eat too much.
Some people have a metabolism that allows them to do this, most folks don’t.
In today’s world food is cheap and plentiful, its unnatural, and people end up eating out of pleasure rather than true hunger, eating more than what the body needs.
If you’re overweight try just serving yourself half a plate and leaving the rest for another meal. Dieting some will do you good and you will soon see how cutting calories in half reduces your weight.
Another great tip often recommended: Since you’re going to be eating less you wont feel as full, but before sitting down to eat try drinking a big glass of water or two. Your stomach will feel a bit more full and what food you eat afterwards you wont be eating through it like a starving wolf!
Take care folks.
