DAY 14 – IT’S ALL ABOUT THE CHOICES!

by

I’ve posted this before but I think it is relevant now.  It gives some perspective on weight loss and the fact that you don’t have to starve yourself to get to your healthy goal weight:

One McDonald’s Big Mac contains 550 calories, 29 grams of fat (most of it saturated), and more than 45 grams of highly-processed, blood-sugar-spiking carbohydrates.  And that doesn’t even count the fries and soft drink that you’ll likely order with it.

(You know I had to find the most unappealing photo of a Big Mac!!)
Go ahead and eat ALL of this images as ONE MEAL to land you the same 550 calories:
-4 oz of grilled chicken (120 cals)
-3 cups of broccoli (90 cals)
-1 sweet potato (120 cals)
-8 oz of plain Greek yogurt (120 cals)
-8 medium strawberries (30 cals)
-10 almonds (70 cals)
So basically, you have a large quantity of HEALTHY food that will fill you up & supply your body with necessary nutrients.
More so, in researching this evil sandwich some more, I found out that it contains 2426 mg of sodium, 26 mg MORE than our recommended allowance for ONE DAY!!!

MORAL OF THE STORY:
You don’t have to starve yourself (at all) to lose weight and shed those stubborn pounds…you just need to learn how to choose the right foods and space them out equally throughout the day to prevent those hunger spikes. (…and of course, get your butt to bootcamp!)
ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!
