This Week, I’m Gonna Be Strict with My Diet

Have you ever vowed to lose a few pounds and precisely 24 hours later found your hand dipping into the candy jar in your office?

And the second you do, you just feel terrible.

…. But since you broke, you might as well have a few more pieces of candy and start fresh again tomorrow.  

But you make a deal with yourself that tomorrow you will be more strict and have nothing but salads. You will be 100% healthy to make up for the Snickers you are eating right now.  

Two days later, you are back in the candy jar.

What’s the Deal with Carbs?

It's been nearly 46 years since Dr. Atkins first introduced the Atkins Diet. And since then, a war has been waged on carbs.

So, what’s the deal with carbs?
• Should you eat them?

• Are they good for you?
• Do they make you gain weight?
• What are the best carbs to eat?

Here is the bigger question, how come everytime you avoid carbs, you crave them soo damn bad?

For real?

For all the research, information, and technology that we have today, that’s the best advice we can give?

“Someone Help Me Please!!!!”

If I Just Look at a Cookie I’ll Gain Weight

Have you ever felt like this:  

You count your calories for 2-3 weeks, you cook all your meals, you avoid junk food, and you lose a MEASLY 2 pounds.  But the second you have ONE cookie, you put the 2 pounds back on immediately?

How can you put in so much work for such a small result?

And then in one little slip up, it’s all gone?

On the other hand, you have a friend who just looks at a vegetable and loses weight.  

How much does this suck?

It’s the worst.  How can tons and tons of work be erased in a split second?
