Food Calories is it worth it?
Food calories are important when you are trying to lose weight. Yesterday I was on the treadmill for 30 minutes and I realized that all my hard work only erased the Starburst candy I ate the night before.
That was a light bulb moment for me, food calories vs. empty calories. I began asking myself “Is it worth it” before I put anything into my mouth. Do I really want to spend 30 minutes at the gym for 15 pieces of Starburst? To answer honestly somedays it is worth it, but most days it is not. I enjoy going to the gym, its my me time, stress burner as well as keeping me healthy and active. I also have to admit that I am about 40 pounds overweight, so that means burning calories means something to me. I need to eat more food calories that help me in my weight lose journey.
If you feel you must have that piece of candy to get you over the hump limit yourself to 2 or 3 pieces at 20 calories each.
