The best way to loose weight is to eat, sounds crazy but a plate full of fresh fruit and veggies is more effective in helping you loose weight than an empty plate. If your familiar with the term "starvation mode", it's a state that your body goes into when it thinks it's starving and what it does is when you do finally eat it takes all of that food and stores it as fat compared to when you eat normally your body just takes what it needs and burns the rest off. Our bodies still think in a "hunter and gatherer" mentality where our body assumes that if it's not getting food there isn't any or there is a famine and once it does get food after starving it stores it all in case there isn't going to be anymore food for another long period. So in short, not eating makes you fat.
Don't limit or count calories, as long as your eating well and healthy foods you shouldn't have to worry about counting everything that goes into your body. Especially because calories don't take into consideration nutritional values like protein, carbohydrates, fats etc. For example, for 250 calories you could eat a chocolate bar or a yoghurt, apple, egg and some nuts. Which is going to fill you up more? It's pretty obvious which is the better lifestyle choice.
You are what you eat and drink! I think the picture really sends the message but basically if you eat crap, your going to feel like crap and if you eat healthy your going to feel healthy. It's as simple as that, how you feel and look depends on what you eat and drink.
I'm sure most of you understand all of this but I just really wanted to contribute my part to the "Feed Yourself" revolution because it's something I really believe in. If you are living an unhealthy lifestyle, it's never too late to change and start making small steps in the right direction!
