Food & Diet
One of the hardest parts about busting stubborn belly fat is knowing and understanding food, there is so much conflicting information that’s given to us on a daily basis, and alot of it is not relevant or the information that is given don’t explain any kind of impact it has on our health or just as important our midsection, along with other flabby areas.
How many of you reading this think “fats” make you fat? or “carbs”are the enemy? none of these statements are true and will explain why further down this page.
This is probably the most important part of your diet to comprehend…….. enjoy what you’re eating!. Because if you don’t you will not have long term success. Remember this is a lifestyle change, not a quick fix, if you can’t sustain a plan for the rest of your life then its worthless and you’re putting yourself through stress that can be avoided.
Also, I would just like to say if you fancy a pizza, pack of crisp or any other kind of “junk food” then have it but in moderation, don’t deny yourself of life’s pleasures you really don’t need too!
