Body fat, eating fat, and exercise

Body fat, eating fat, and exercise

If I eat more fat, I’ll get fat.

Saturated fat is especially bad.

If I rest more, exercise less, I’ll get fat.

If I do both- rest more and eat more fat- the world may end.

This is what I believed for years.

How about you?

What do your actions and choices say? Do you avoid fats? Perhaps you are OK with certain fats, but not others. Maybe olive oil or salmon is OK, but butter or steak is a huge no-no.

What about exercise? Has r.e.s.t become a naughty 4-letter word? Do you beat yourself up when you don’t exercise as much as you think you should?

I sure did.

If you’re like me, this is your reality. This is what you know to be true.

But…

What if you have it completely wrong?

I really love it.

I don’t workout that much…

The weather is so nice I just have to.

It makes me feel great.

It’s my job.

This amount may be “a lot” for a regular person, but I’m highly conditioned so I have to do more to get the same effect…

And on and on and on…
Identifying the lies you tell yourself is critical if you also want to identify the TRUTH about why you exercise excessively.
