It’s never easy changing your eating habits. If you’re used to eating fast food two to three times a week, it’s extremely hard. Up until about two months ago, I’d eat fast food at least three times a week. After a long day of being on my feet, I was too lazy to worry about my calories or working out. In fact, both of those things were the last things on my mind. Then one day, I woke up and realized how horrible my eating habits were. I turned to salads and water and cut fatty foods out of my diet.
I made quite a few mistakes when I first began my fitness journey. I wasn’t eating enough calories at first, and I would also still have two cheat days a week. When I wasn’t stressing about my calories, I was constantly weighing myself. Although I did end up losing six pounds in one month, I had one week where I ate really unhealthy and gained two pounds back.
The most important thing to remember is to eat enough calories. My all-time favorite app to count calories is MyFitnessPal. All you have to do is plug in the calories of the food you’re eating, how much water you’re drinking, how long you exercise for, and how much you weigh. It takes everything into account and then supplies you with a specific number of calories you should be eating each day.
It is crucial to not obsesses over the amount of calories you’re eating or how much you weigh. What’s crucial is your goal. You have to keep in mind that you will not reach your goal if you obsess over each and every calorie you eat and every little ounce you weigh. If you meet your calorie requirements, work out daily, and eat healthy, you will reach your goals.
