I’m sure there are many of you who find yourself in this situation. And there are some simple things you can do to burn a few hundred extra calories a day that don’t require exercise .
Diet and de-stress.
Not “distress,” but “de-stress.”
First, let me say, and you might have heard this before- 6 pack abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym. And what that means is that about 75-80% of your lean, flat stomach comes from your diet, not from doing crunches and sit-ups and other abdominal exercises. You can’t out exercise a bad diet. And you can’t spot reduce either. It just doesn’t work that way.
When you lose fat, you lose fat from all over, not just your stomach, or your thighs, or your hips. In fact, abdominal fat is usually the last to go.
Ah, sugar, my arch-nemesis. Don’t give me a piece of chocolate cake or some M&M chocolate covered peanuts. It’s just too hard to stop.
Isn’t it interesting that most of us know what we should eat and what we shouldn’t eat and yet we still have a problem losing weight? We’re intelligent, we’re educated, and yet somehow we still have these cravings that we give in to.
