Losing Weight - Stop Focusing on the Carrots!
What do I mean by that?
Well, carrots are good for you and I encourage all of my clients to eat them - as well as all the other veggies - whenever they can. The problem I find with most of my clients looking to lose weight is that they are focused on the wrong things. They will come to me and say, "I have taken carrots out of my diet because I heard that they contain "sugar" and that's bad right?"
Now carrots do have some sugar in them but in VERY small amounts. The benefits of eating carrots FAR outweigh the costs and that is my point. Instead of focusing on that tiny amount of sugar in a healthy vegetable they should be focused on whether or not they went to the gym 4 times this week like they were supposed to. Or if they have been consistent with thier diet "as a whole" over the last month.
Losing weight is not as complicated as people make it out to be. You just need a few mental tools to keep you focused on the right things and it becomes a "piece of cake" - but not carrot cake :)
