I hear this a lot from people trying to lose weight. It is a battle as to what you can and can’t eat when you want to see the number on the scale go down. There is obviously a relationship between your weight and what foods you are eating. I truly believe this does not mean you can never have some foods you enjoy.
It simply isn’t ONE cookie that is the problem, it is TEN of them. It isn’t going to McDonald’s that ONE time, it is going there multiple times a week. Yes, we do have to make the right choice a majority of the time, but if someone told me I could NEVER go to MacArthur’s bakery for a pastry again, well, lets just say there would be a revolt. Having that apple, salad, fish and all the other healthy things along with a regular exercise program gives you the right to reward yourself with a cookie.
Until next time….
