Rule# 1-Stop Eating So Much Crap

Rule# 1-Stop Eating So Much Crap

 How's the diet going???:

A while back I wrote an article entitled The Only 4 things You Need to do to Lose Weight. #2 , #3 and #4 have already been discussed here, here, and here .

#1 is closely related to Rule # 2-Pay Attention

This will be a short article. Why? Because you already know the answer. You just choose to ignore it.

When someone asks me where they should start, I turn it around and ask them where they think they should start. They always give me the correct answer! Funny how that works…

I usually get an answer like “I should probably stop drinking 4 or 5 soft drinks a day” or “I should probably quit stopping at Dunkin Donuts for breakfast.” Whatever answer they give me, they are always right. They know where they should start. They know it’s a bad habit. And they know they need to change.

I could give you a long list of things you should change. But that would be overwhelming and you wouldn’t stick with it. You break bad habits and addictions  one step at a time.

So pick one part of your eating ritual that you know is bad for you and eliminate it. Then pick another and another and another.

You also have to eliminate the temptation. Don’t keep that item anywhere near you. Clean out the pantry and your desk drawer at work (where you hide the snacks-you know you do that). If you stop at Dunkin or Crispy Cream every morning, take another route to work.

Whatever you pick, get familiar with the numbers. This goes back to Rule # 2-Pay Attention  For example, two  plain crispy cream glazed donut is 480 calories and 24 grams of fat. That’s 2400 calories in a 5 day work week. You could lose almost a pound in a week by eliminating that one item. A bacon, egg and cheese biscuit is 460 calories and 23 grams of fat. In a 5 day work week that’s 2300 calories and 115 grams of fat.

You already know where the crap is in your diet. So....
