I don’t understand why the idea of eating whatever you want and still lose weight is such a hard one for us to understand. It’s basic science. If we burn off more calories than se take in, then we’ll lose weight. If we want to eat a lot, then we have to burn a lot. It’s really simple.
Don’t take my word for it. Check out Michael Phelps. He has to consume 8,000 to 10,000 calories a day:
We tend to focus on the wrong part of the weight loss equation. When faced with losing weight most people begin by cutting back food intake or eliminating certain food groups entirely. If we would only increase our activity level, we wouldn’t have to make such severe dietary changes.
The Choice is Yours
I can hear complaints already about how hard it is to exercise and how you don’t have the time to exercise. All I can say is that if you really want to lose weight and eat whatever you want, you have to move a lot. The choice is yours.
