You’re Not Eating Enough When Working Out

You’re not eating enough when working out.  Many women are overworking their bodies with exercise while massively restricting their carbs. To our detriment, some women believe what they are doing is actually good for them. I’m here to tell you that it isn’t. Here’s why.

Diet’s don’t work. Restricting calories and carbohydrates is only a temporary solution, whereas making healthy choices a normal habitual part of your lifestyle is. Working out and severely limiting calories and carbs will burn through all the muscle that you think you are building, leaving you with just bones and skin. You aren’t eating enough while working out. You see, our bodies need carbs to run on. I’ve found that when most people think of carbs they think carbs are “bad”. In reality, carbs are not the enemy, they never have been. In fact, they are necessary for good health!

You think I just told you that eating pizza, french fries, bread, and pastries are all okay, don’t you?! Sadly, that’s where most people have the wrong information. Healthy carbs don’t include fried foods, white bread or even pizza, but do include foods like every single vegetable on the planet, sweet potatoes, quinoa, whole grains, fruits, rice, oats, beans, and legumes. Look, the occasional slice of pizza is okay! Just not all the time!

When women work out, we are so scared that we will gain weight that we tend to undereat, when in reality we should be eating more, higher quality whole foods. Our food is energy, and to build muscle and lose fat we all need healthy carbohydrates.

My advice is to keep working hard, but learn to accept yourself for who you are no matter what you look like and you’ll find yourself to be in a much happier place. This doesn’t give a green light to let ourselves become obese or for that matter overweight either. Love yourself for who you are not what you look like.

We should always strive to grow in all ways, and that actually includes taking care of our bodies for our health. We only have one body, and it’s condition directly impacts all aspects of our lives. It’s not healthy to be too skinny, nor is it healthy to be way overweight either. We are all more than just our bodies, whether you are short and stocky, tall and pear-shaped, or supermodel looking. Take care of all of yourself in all ways and make it a priority today!
