Eating carbs does not make the scale go up. Eating carbs does not make the scale go up. Eating carbs does not make the scale go up. Weight is so much more dynamic than that.
Sleep is more important than exercise. If you skip out on sleep in order to get in a workout you’re doing yourself a disservice. Actually, you could be setting yourself up for weight gain. Sleep trumps working out every time. And if you’re sleeping enough, you’ll enjoy working out more.People don’t care about your pant size. They care about your heart. Losing weight does not make you happier, more successful, more fulfilled or more lovable. People love you for YOU.
Whether you’re paleo or vegan or whatever, if your way of eating hinders your social life you should probably reevaluate the “healthiness” of that healthy lifestyle. Food isn’t black and white or legalistic. One meal is not going to derail your healthy efforts or cause chronic disease, but the stress or avoiding particular foods might. Most importantly, food is meant to be shared with others and celebrated. Life is about loving others, soaking up experiences, embracing sponteneity, and finding joy in both the big and small things. And that includes both kale and cupcakes.
