“Is food ‘x’ going to make me fat?”
This is a question that I’ve been asked countless times and my answer is always the same “no”, it doesn’t matter which food it is, my answer will always be “no”.
No single food or food group is going to make you fat.
I try and avoid labelling foods as good or bad, the quantity you consume is what leads to fat gain (plain and simple), but this has nothing to do with the food, or food type.
A couple of years ago I carried out a twelve week experiment, I wanted to show people that it is possible to lose weight whilst still eating foods that are perceived as ‘bad’, so I ate two Krispy Creme donuts a day (tough life) whilst losing weight…
So how did I do in those 12 weeks?
I lost 17 kilograms (37.4lbs).
You can fit the foods you enjoy into your diet every day and still lose fat, there’s a simple method to it and it’s called being in a calorie deficit.
I really can’t emphasise how simple it is to lose fat, yet so many people struggle with it because they over-complicate it.
By using the right methods to fit your lifestyle you can make fat loss simple, sustainable and painless.
There’s no need for temporary quick fixes like Slender Blends, Magic Teas or any of the other nonsense currently being pushed by ‘Z list celebrities’ for a quick buck. In the end you’ll only end up fatter, poorer and unhappier, make it a lifestyle change not a quick fix and reap the rewards.
