Recently ran into my friend, a former pageant runner up, and I couldn’t help but notice the progress she made in getting into shape. I asked her about her routine and daily dose of nutrients, to which she answered truthfully. Needless to say, after that chat I’ve somehow accepted the fact that I will be a chunky blob of cellulite for as long as life will allow me.
Rigorous fat burning sessions and jam-packed fitness training schedules from as early as 8 am to as late as 2 am (not even exaggerating here), that was what she had to go through to get those result. She’s not even done yet.
But that’s not what made me accept my fatty fate. It’s the fact that she had to cut rice out of her diet. A dietary suicide for someone who eats rice with spaghetti, if you ask me.
So I decided to do some link scavenging to save my carb on carb nutriment. Safe in the knowledge that I will NOT be a chunky chubby boulder for the rest of my life. Ha!
And it looks to me, I found a pot of gold.
Complex carbs, when eaten, can blend with the fats in your system and take over the fats, so you burn them off quicker.
Now, I’m not gonna go on to write stuff about health and nutrition, and act like I’m an expert at it – coz I’m not. My point is, what we forget to see is that carbs is still part of real food. By real food, I mean stuff without the junk and MSG.
The body can process anything authentic and burn it. That is if it’s not in excess. It’s so easy to blame food for making you fat when in fact, it’s the sedentary lifestyle to blame. You just gotta burn more than what you consume.
Here’s a tip: If your burp still smells like the food you ate even after an hour from consumption, best believe you’ve been eating plastic.
In the end, you are not what you eat but you are what you do.
