OK, I'll admit it. I cheated a bit on my diet today. Had an EXTREMELY hectic day today, driving all around town - was on the road pretty much all day long, and didn't even have any time to sit down for lunch.
And that's what I'm referring to - I cheated on my diet today at lunch. Had some greasy, fried stuff I would normally not even touch with a ten foot pole, but we didn't have many options available to be honest. No options, and no time either, so had to grab some "fast food" as it were. And that happens to all of us - I'm sure you know where I'm coming from.
The good news though is that I know the cheating today won't end up as excess fat around the midsection. Why? Well, first of all I don't cheat all the time - if I did, that would be another story, but I only OCCASIONALLY deviate from my diet, either due to necessity (most of the time) or sometimes just to eat what I like. The key word being OCCASIONAL - not "every other day", or "Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays".
Second, I'm following the exercise routines I advocate in Fast and Furious Fitness. And if you do so on a regular basis as well, you won't have to worry about the occasional deviation from a good diet either. In fact, there have been many folks that haven't even changed their diet one bit - and have still succeeded in melting the fat off their bodies at the rate of knots. That's right - NO change in their diet, and yet they got the results. I don't advovate this myself, but the exercises are that powerful - so if you haven't already got your copy, do so NOW.
Anyway, I'll be back to my usual diet this evening. And I'm looking forward to it - unlike what most folks think, a healthy diet can be far,far tastier than "fast food" on the run, and I can personally vouch for that one.
So, there endeth today's (delayed) tip. Back again tomorrow!
PS: Grab a copy of the Simple and Effective Diet NOW, and see how you can eat healthy, and enjoy it far more than you do the "fast food". Drop the fast food - it's just not good for you.
