How to eat everything and still lose weight

Yes, you heard me right, you can eat everything and still lose weight. Sound too good to be true? Well, within the Skinny Healthy Girl concept of indulging mindfully, it’s not. Since deprivation through dieting is only short term, why not choose a life-long healthier option while getting to eat everything that you love or years to come?

What does eating everything and losing weight really mean?  It’s the concept of trying a little of every type of food without over-indulging and then balancing it all out with healthier foods and exercise. For instance, if you go out for burgers and fries with your girlfriend and indulge, cut the burger in 1/2 and share it. Then back up that indulgence with a good cardio workout and healthier food choices the next day, it’s that simple.

Think about it, if you ate everything in large quantities, like a whole big bag of potato chips and didn’t burn those calories off, you’re going to gain weight, right?  Well instead, if you eat a handful of your favorite chips and then followed that up with exercise and continued healthy eating habits, you’re going to lose weight and then maintain your healthier lifestyle. We’re only human and none of us can stick to a regimented diet for life, right? Plus, who wants to live like that?

The concept of eating everything while continuing to lose weight, or maintain weight loss, works in every situation. Another example would be, if you go out to eat with a few of your friends and you each choose an appetizer and share, you won’t end up eating an over-portioned meal that is always too big for one person.  Instead, have a little bit of each of the foods that you love and walk away with a perfectly full stomach feeling confident in yourself and your choices.

Eating everything is about being wise, mindful and aware.  Life is too short for deprivation and living on a diet does not work, it’s not a lifestyle and will eventually put you into a state of overeating and making poor choices. Balance is key to everything, choose wisely, exercise often and live life to the fullest starting today!
