Do you believe that there are hard and fast rules around nutrition and fitness that MUST be followed?
You MUST eat breakfast if you want your metabolism to kick in
You must do cardio to burn fat
You must eliminate all sugars to lose weight
You must follow the principles of [insert diet here]
Here’s the thing. I’m not saying to be illogical and live off bread and ice cream, but there’s a lot of gray area in fitness and nutrition that will actually help you stay on track in the long run.
The first step is to determine your goal. For most people, it’s to lose fat and put on some lean muscle.
There’s no one right way to do this.
If you have found that you’re just not hungry in the mornings and skipping breakfast doesn’t cause you to overeat later in the day, then SKIP breakfast! It’ll get you into a caloric deficit that aids your fat loss.
If you crave sugar, find a way to incorporate your favourite thing every day (yes, every day!) in small quantities to keep yourself from feeling deprived and binging.
There is no all or none in your health, and that’s just the truth.
Find the grey area that works for you, stick to it, and watch the results show up.
