Today I'm going to dish out a little tough love, so brace yourself and know that this is for your own good. It's time that we had an uncomfortable little talk about a very important issue... That junk food in your house. You know the stuff that I'm talking about. The ice cream jammed into the back of your freezer.
The packaged biscuits that you say are for the kids lunches.
The sweetie stash that's leftover from the last few birthdays or halloween.
Those bags of crunchy, salty snacks in your cupboards.
The bottles of fizzy juice that you know you shouldn't drink.
And the list goes on... Here's the bottom line: If you consistently over eat the junk food then you'll get fat. Junk = Fat.
Now I know that you have justified the presence of junk food in your house,
so let's walk through these justifications and I'll shine some truth on it for you. 1) It's For The Kids:
This is the oldest excuse in the book when it comes to keeping junk food in the house.
It's flawed for many reasons, namely because you know you eat some of it.
When junk is in the house you are bound to eat some of it at times.
And your kids should NOT be eating junk food on a regular basis, such as in their
lunches. It's not good for them and it's not good for you. 2) I Didn't Buy It:
Oh, it wasn't me,I didn't buy it. My in-laws, friend, sister, kids, spouse
OK, it's still in your house though.
I understand why you may be hesitant to throw out food that someone else gave you, but look at the big picture.
By throwing junk out of your house you are protecting your health and the healthy of everyone
who lives under your roof.
3) A Little Bit Won't Hurt:
When you keep junk food in the house you're fooling yourself if you think that you only eat a little bit of it.
The contents of your kitchen become the things that you habitually eat.
If there's junk in the house then you habitually are eating it, and a
little bit of junk every day adds up to a LOT of junk over a week or month.
And you wonder why you haven't lost the weight yet... 4) It's My Favorite: I understand that there may be junk foods that you've become so used to eating that it's hard to imagine going a day or more without it.
In this case, you really need to cut the junk out in order to achieve your ideal health and fitness level.
Birthdays, holidays, and special occasions are the time to have a taste of your old favorite junk.
And after you've stopped eating it daily you may find that it doesn't even taste as good as you remember. 5) Life's Too Short: YOLO, right? (You Only Live Once) If this is your excuse for having junk food in the house, then I've got a new one for you.
YOLO, so why not live that life in a healthy, fit, attractive body that's full of energy, free from aches and pains and looks amazing?!
Being fit and healthy is so much more rewarding than eating a favored junk food every day.
Nothing tastes as good as fit and healthy feels.
Now it's time for you to take action. All you need is a big black rubbish bag and the determination to be fit and healthy.
Grab that bag, march into your kitchen and start ditching the junk. Look for anything in a package that contains processed sugar, grains and ingredients you can't pronounce or have never heard of.
Go get 'em' tiger! Awesome job! Didn't that feel great?
Your kitchen is now wholesome and healthy, and your body will be too. Eating a healthy diet, free from junk, is one side of the equation
when it comes to getting into amazing shape.
The other side is consistent, challenging exercise, I got you covered with that as well
ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY
Watch out, or that junk food will come creeping back into your cupboards.
Decide here and now to adopt a zero tolerance policy when it comes to junk food in your house.
Be vigilant and stay strong when your kids start to whine for their old favorites.
Replace the junk with wholesome food such as fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds, and meats.
If you think this might benefit someone you know, feel free to share on social media and spread the word.
