It is our inner self that dominates with excuses in our heads as to why it’s okay to eat unhealthy ‘just once in a while’, have a snack or a sandwich a few times a day, drink alcohol a few times a week. That’s the part of inner self that doesn’t want you to lose weight. Separate it from yourself and say no to it!
Often loosing weight is just a matter of cutting out a few foods you eat on regular basis that are high in fat or carbs. Learning how your body, your mood and your energy function is also very important. When you are losing weight, there is often a tendency to eat less. But if you just started exercising and aren’t eating enough, you are doing damage to your body. If you want to eat carbs, eat a limited amount 2 hours before you exercise. It will give you energy to burn and you will feel energetic after the work out. If you crave fats, replace them with natural fats, like nuts or avocado. And eat before the work out.

Love your body so much, you don’t want to put unhealthy things into it, you want it to look beautiful! The faster you change, the faster you’ll lose weight.
