Bad Foods, bad calories and weight Loss…
Sitting down to eat, you look at the plate next to you and begin to salivate.
Then, looking down at your plate a queasy feeling comes over you. You don’t think you can take another bite.
Every day it’s the same bland and boring thing.
And you’re sick of it.
You can’t live like this anymore.
You’re dying for a piece of pizza.
You dream of sugary, sweet, ever-so-naughty treats.
This healthy eating thing is sucking the joy out of life. And you feel guilty every time a delicious morsel of food touches your lips.
If this is what it takes to lose weight, maybe it’s not worth it.
There has to be a better way.
Warning: These foods are poisoning you (and making you fat).
Every diet has a demon.
A culprit responsible for your weight loss struggles.
Too much sugar, too many carbs, too fatty, too whatever. These demons throw your hormones out of wack or overrun your body with inflammation.
It’s these “bad” foods, spawned from the depths of Hell, that make you sick and fat.
The diet promise.
Eliminate bad foods.
Abolish bad calories.
Ditch the foods you love.
And watch the pounds melt off.
Or, so they say.
Why You Shouldn’t Feel Guilty About Eating Junk Food
The idea of clean eating suggests that certain foods are dirty or bad.
But what makes food dirty?
You can lose weight eating “bad” calories.
You can gain weight eating “clean”.
And there’s no objective definition of good or bad calories. Every one has a different idea of what constitutes as “clean” eating.
Paleo followers says white rice and beans are bad.
Low carb zealots say sugar turns you into a fat storing machine. It’s so bad, sweet fruits are prohibited.
Raw food pundits swear anything cooked is bad.
If it’s not organic or gluten-free, it’s on the prohibited list.
Has artificial sweeteners, or salt? It’s banned.
Includes an ingredient you can’t pronounce? Must be poisonous. Banned.
Contains more than three ingredients?
You know it.
So, what are you left with?
Raw organic broccoli?
Sure, you’ll lose weight.
But what it does is set you up for?
Surprise! You can get good results eating bad foods.
As food restrictions increase, the likelihood of deficiencies and cravings increase. Food fear mongering and extreme restrictions also induce stress, shame, and create an unhealthy relationship with food.
Below are a few examples of the averse effects you can expect when you drop “bad” foods from your diet.
No more fat.
Your testosterone production plummets.
Every one watch out.
Issues associated with testosterone deficiencies aren’t limited to men.
Fatigue, loss of libido, weight gain, and a loss of skin tone resulting in sagging and wrinkles are just a few of the adverse effects you can expect.
Eradicate those “naughty” carbs and watch your levels of thyroid hormone plummet.
Fall too low and feelings of tiredness, constipation, depression, and weight gain manifest.
Told you can’t have your favorite foods, then that becomes all you think about.
Cravings and anxiety increase. Overeating ensues. Weight gain follows.
But eating “bad” foods, in limited quantities combats these diet pitfalls. They fill nutrient gaps and reduce food related anxiety making their occasional consumption essential to your health, sanity, and the long term success of your diet.
How to Have Have Your Cake and Eat it Too
Adding in “bad” calories helps eliminate the drudgery of dieting. It can make a diet work, when it’s failed you before.
Without the labels of “good” or “bad” calories…
Anxiety and guilt surrounding food disappears. You can go to parties. You can visit friends and family for dinner. You can finally enjoy a meal out.
Since no food is off limits you’re no longer fixated on what you can’t have. Cravings soon vanish.
Even an occasional slip up isn’t a big deal.
Having a more flexible approach to dieting means you can jump back on track without feeling like a failure.
More calories means more weight loss.
Most foods considered “bad” have a higher calorie density than “healthy” foods. But you can use this to your advantage.
According to research findings, fluctuating your calories throughout a diet is superior to a constant caloric deficit diet.
So, consuming “bad” foods and having a higher calorie day breaks up your calorie intake and accelerates your weight loss.
Making bad foods work for you.
Stick with your diet 90 percent of the time. Leave the other 10 percent of your calories for “cheating”.
Choose one of the models below to incorporate “bad calories” into your diet to enjoy your treats, and accelerate fat loss.
- Go Big — Every two or three weeks, have one meal consisting of your favorite prohibited foods. Keep it between 2k and 3k calories.
- Middle of the Road — Every week include your favorite “bad” calories in a delicious 1,000 to 1,500 calorie meal.
- Tiny Indulgence — Enjoy a small indulgence every other day. Because it’s frequent, keep it small. Between 200 and 300 “bad” calories.
