Something I wanted to talk about, a roadblock if you will in my fat burning goals. Family, I think you know what I mean. I remember not all that long ago I had started hardcore on my fat burning goals. I was eating right exercising you know the drill. My uncle, a good guy I have to say, shows up at my house with one of those KFC double crappers or whatever those disgusting things are called. You know that nasty thing that uses two fried chicken breasts as the bread for the sandwich stuffed with bacon and fricken cheese. Now in reality the double down is not as bad as some of the other artery clogging fast food out there, like even a whopper for example. It’s even “healthier” than some of the other fast food “restaurants” comparable chicken sandwiches. Either way that kind of food pretty much makes me feel like crap when I eat it.
There was definitely a time when I was a fast food junkie, but those times are gone. Still I sometimes get a craving. Those cravings are not helped by the people in my life who really don’t care about their own physical well being. It’s a bit hard to burn fat when you are eating 30 or 40 grams of it in one sitting.
How do you combat these negative influences in your weight loss? I have found that giving in once and a while works wonders. I’m not saying I would run out and grab a bacon double cheeseburger right now. I’m just saying that every couple of months it ain’t so bad. As long as I account for it.
On that occasional day when you give in to the craving remind yourself what feels better the few minutes of eating or how great it feels to not be carrying around so much fat.
I do want to point out that I’m not talking about those people who sabotage with malicious intent. Occasionally you will have someone who genuinely and intentionally wants to sabotage your weight loss goals. Just cut those people out of your life completely.
The people I’m referring to are more the well intentioned yet misguided. For these people it may only take a bit of enlightenment let them know that the crap food they are bringing you does not jibe with your fat burning goals.
