How Can You Eat That?!

Have you ever been in a restaurant with a group of friends and you order a crazy desert that you really want to try - like a Churro Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich?

It hits the table, and it’s gorgeous.

You take one bite, and it tastes AMAZING. The waffle is hot. The ice cream is cold, soft, and velvety.

It’s too good not to share.

You ask: “Anyone want a bite?”  

Unanimously, everyone say “No,” but the look on their faces is half disgusted and really saying, “How can you eat that?”

But here’s the nail in the coffin, and there is always someone at the table that will say this, “No! I’m good. You enjoy it. It looks delicious, though!”

It immediately makes you feel so angry and so guilty at the same time that even though you can taste the sweetness of the ice cream sandwich, you are just begrudgingly chewing to not let your friends know that their comments and stupid facial expressions bothered you.

You think to yourself, “Seriously? Why don’t you just punch me in the face next time, Jerry? I don’t need your passive aggressive comments.”

Pablo, Keto, and Avocados

Graphic showing benefits of avocados

How many times have you been scrolling through Instagram or Facebook and seen something like this?

"Avocados can solve everything from blood sugar to ED."

Translation: Eat more avocados, right?

I had a client do just that. His name is Pablo.

Pablo was not a traditional client. He is a 17-year vet of the fitness industry. He exercises 15+ hours per week. He is a Jiu Jitsu brown belt (and very close to his black belt). He does CrossFit. He lifts weights. He does Yoga.

By every stretch of the imagination, this guy should be able to eat whatever he wants, whenever he wants, and be a shredded machine.

But that wasn’t close to the truth.

Boring Meal Prep Containers

Meal Preppin’ and Gaining Weight

Have you done a perfect meal prep? I mean the type of meal prep that looks like this:

Meal Prep Containers filled with beautiful food

Then Wednesday comes….

You walk over to the fridge and pull out your Tupperware with a perfectly-portioned, weighed, and measured meal.

You pop the lid and….


The same meal. At the same time. This time a little older, stinkier, and soggier.

The zucchini is brown.
The asparagus is limp.
The rice is hard.
The chicken is rubber.
The salad is mushy.

Not exactly appetizing.
"Screw this! I’m going to Chipotle for lunch. This whole meal prep thing is stupid."

3 days later, your remaining meal prep is in the garbage and you have now paid $20 in just guacamole fees.

Wait, wasn’t the meal prep thing supposed to make eating better, not worse? The article you read said it would "help with portion control, add variety, and save money."

Hah! What a joke! It helped with none of them. But, wait, here’s the funniest part of this all:

Junk Food

Autopilot Binging [Video]

Have you ever been commuting home from work, turned through the drive thru at Wendy’s or McDonald’s, eaten the entire meal in the car, only to realize how much you just ate as you are picking up french fries off the floor of your car?  

How did that just happen?

Who ordered this meal?

Who ate this meal?

It’s not because you are fat, lazy, or undisciplined.

But here’s the real reason why…..

Spilled Coffee Cup

"I’ll Just Grab Coffee to Curb My Appetite"

We’ve all been here…..

You notice that your pants are a little tight. You know you’ve been slacking and not eating healthy, and you need to drop a few lbs.

You make a grand decision of "no more junk food or snacking. The snacking KILLS me."

The next day, while sitting at your desk, you start craving your usual snack at your usual time. It’s like clockwork every day at 10am!

You think to yourself, "I need to break this habit. I need to hold strong and not eat. Don’t be such a fat ass!"

You stay strong, skip your snack, and hold off until lunch.

Look at you go!

But a few days later, you have a SHITTY morning. Something at work goes horribly wrong. You walk into a shit storm, and the only thing you want is your mid-morning snack.

Shit! What do you do? You need to break the habit. You’ve been doing really well, but you are really craving a snack so badly.
