Let’s talk about serving sizes and food labels for a second! While exercising is so important for your overall physical and mental health. If you are trying to lose weight educating yourself about nutrition is the SINGLE most important thing you can do. * * I used to be the girl that would workout HARD and then go eat a cheeseburger, French fries and soda because “I worked out”...did you know that 1 McDonald’s Big Mac, a large French fry and soda has 1330 calories in it....for 1 meal! that’s more than half my daily calorie intake! * * With that being said, you can also eat too much “healthy food” there have been plenty of times where I mindlessly ate carrots and hummus, scooping big dollops of hummus on tiny carrots.
