By now you’ve realized that the so called “new year’s resolution” generally doesn’t work (that’s why most gym memberships have 3 month minimums).
It doesn’t matter if your goal was to actually lose weight or just adopt a healthier diet, chances are it didn’t work. Ditch it. I’ve got a better way…
The ONE thing you need to do today is:
Choose your #1 offender. What is the worst thing in your diet? Come on, you can admit it, no one’s looking. Ok, so whatever that 1 thing is, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find a replacement that you actually enjoy.
Mega deluxe double cheeseburger: make it a lean burger (even better would be a black bean or quinoa burger) on gluten free bun. FYI you don’t need to have Celiac /Coeliac Disease to eat a gluten free meal, it’s better for everyone and definitely better for those trying to lose weight.
Cheesecake: make a raw one out of cashews. Yes, nuts are high on fat but good fats are great for you – don’t listen to the ridiculous uninformed telling you otherwise. Skip the sugar and chemically loaded things posing as strawberries (tip: high gloss lacquer finishes don’t come naturally with real food) and top your cake with actual unadulterated fruit.
The 3pm chocolate chip cookies: replace with high protein raw almond cookies and remember that no one is stopping you from adding pure chocolate chips to them. Richer flavor, packed with nutrition and anti-oxidants, and your skinny jeans will see the light of day.
