“Stop bitching. Stop making excuses. You can do this.”
+ Ew! HFCS?!:
HFCS stands for high-frucotse corn syrup. You might as well guzzle gasoline. This baby is stored in the fat cells & forces the liver to work overtime. Always go with organic. If you’re a spicy fanatic like me, look for quality hot sauces like All Spice Cafe & mix your own homemade salad dressings.
+ Calorie, Schmalorie:
Low-cal doesn’t equal healthy. Do not justify your meal just because of the calorie count. At first glance, I check the label for sugar & carb content. When foods are high in protein & calories, they provide you will more energy & a fullness feeling.
+ Peace-out, Soda:
Soda is a giant, epic FAIL. There’s absolutely no reason to consume soda. There are too many other delicious options. It’s bloating & disgusting. Slug a Kombucha, Ayala’s Herbal Water, or an organic energy shot [ ex. Celestial Seasonings K Shots ]. Oh, & before you grab that cup of coffee that you’ll diiiiiiieeee without on an empty stomach, eat a banana.
+ A Super Sized No-No:
The only thing that you should be drinking that is larger than your handbag, is a water bottle. A smoothie, even if it’s filled with fruit, should not be weighing down your arm with its heavy load. Portion control applies to bubbly, skinny lattes, and/or juices. Solution: order smalls/talls or buy portion-sized glasswear to keep yourself accountable!
