Eat like a horse and stay slim?

“I’ll go to McDonald’s and have a burger on the way home, when Roy will have made us a nice lamb stir fry with oodles of vegetables. 

He moans about it. 

He says: “But you’ll spoil your appetite”. I say: “When have you ever known me not finish what is on my plate?” I just love food.’”

That’s a quote from a channel 4 documentary that’s on tonight at 830pm

Looking at how some people can seemingly eat 

Loads of crap 

And stay skinny 🤔

But on further inspection 

What did they find?

The AMOUNT of food they eat 

Wasn’t actually as much as they thought 

It was actually an “average” intake 

Sure, sometimes they’d put away a chocolate bar and 5 sausages for breakfast 

But they didn’t pick between meals

They sometimes even left food on their plate

Which just shows the difference between 

Eating “healthily”

and 

Eating for “weight loss”

Now, for me

They should be used in combination 

It’s generally easier to stick to that way

And you’ll feel better. Immune system, energy, migraines, sleep, split nails 

Essentially, small changes to your eating habits, building a positive relationship with food, moderately less calories, preferably whole, nutritious foods

not beating yourself up for eating some cake 

Because you know there’s no bad or good foods 

The only ways it’s really bad

Is if you think you might as well F it

And Start again next week

Just remember:

Fat loss= calorie deficit 

Health = mainly whole, nutritious foods and giving yourself permission to eat the foods you like, knowing that it’s your choice 

After all, one professor ate nothing but cakes and junk food (every 3 hours) for 10 weeks

But made sure he didn’t overeat his calories 

(A bit like the Greggs sausage roll diet)

And be lost 27lbs

Improved his cholesterol 

Reduced blood pressure

He even admitted that he “wished” the results were different 

But it just shows there are no secrets

Sure, some people have more favourable genetics

Better gut health

But either way

The principles are the same when it comes to fat loss 

And getting fitter

In fact, I can guarantee you already know what to do 

And if you did want you already know?

You’d get great results.

So my advice?

Instead of waiting for the next “magic” answer

That cure-all “Natural” herb

Detox tea

Or Whatever else they bring out 

My advice for you is to just get started with what you already know

Like. Literally just drink a glass of water every 2 hours today

Start there
