On a Diet? Check Your Fridge…

Posted by maikeru76 on July 2, 2008

I have determined by now that there is no turning back for me on my eating ‘healthy’.

I am now starting to exercise lightly for a start. Hmmm…I am moving in the right direction right now. Again, no turning back.

Ooops! But wait…Am I kidding myself here? You too may have gone on a diet and a ‘lifestyle overhaul’ presently or in the past. Trying to make that change on losing ‘extra baggage’, getting fit, feeling better or forbid it to happen; due to doctor’s orders.

Have you checked your fridge lately? Yes, the fridge. If your like me, it is the ‘most temptation-filled’ part of any home. The chocolate bars…the creamy dips…that dressing…hmmm, the yummy grilled pork ribs left-over from last night…You know what I’m talking about.

Well, probably most of us are “sabotaging” our own efforts. Willpower or determination alone won’t get us to our fitness goals. Same goes with exercise. ‘Sweating it out’ won’t make us more fitt if we still ‘pig out’ after our exercise sessions and one probable ‘suspect’ for that is the fridge. You may not be losing your extra weight as fast as you could because of the kind of food and snacks you have there.

So with our lifestyle change and our determination to be healthier, let’s ‘clean-out’ the fridge (and freezer).

Check if you still have those tempting treats that ultimately go to the waist.
