I write a lot on this blog about the ways you can get healthier, the foods you should eat, and the exercises you should do to improve the chances of getting the body that you want.
Fixed in a warrior pose for what seemed an eternity, my legs started to burn, my face contorted, I needed to get out of this pose, the instructor walked over, slapped me and said ‘show no emotion.’ I relaxed my face and continued on.
Will a “cheat day” help me get lean? A cheat day, for the uninitiated, is one day a week where you get to binge, in exchange for being extra careful with your diet the rest of the time. Unfortunately as a general rule, I’m going to have to say ‘NO’! A cheat meal will not help you get lean and in fact might just do the opposite.
Won’t eating every few hours boost my metabolism? Unfortunately it does not seem to be the case. You will get the same 'thermic effect of food' (boost in metabolism) if you eat all your calories at one sitting or space them out over the day. In fact, spacing your meals further apart could help you become leaner.
What should I eat to be healthy? Sounds like a simple question, but there seems to be a lot of confusion, and it only seems to be getting worse.
