You overcompensate for exercise

Many of us are familiar with the temptation to reward our workouts with an edible treat (well, you’ve just burned off all those calories, right?), however, it may be that by increasing your calorie intake to fuel or reward your sessions you are actually undoing all the hard work of your workout. In fact, as we often overestimate the calories we burn through exercise, you may even be taking in more than you have actually worked off, leading to weight gain rather than loss.

    its simple really..... eat healthy..... dont do emotional eating, fuel the body with good whole foods, drink plenty of water everyday, do some exercise at least 30 mins per day. chose the kind of exercise that best suits you, learn to enjoy your exercise, get out and about in the fresh air and sunshine... you will feel a whole lot more inspired about life. give yourself a break!!! take note of what foods you stuff into your body...... dont stuff yourself until you pop!
