Did you know that food restriction can often make you fat? Yep that’s right. Especially when you imbibe a diet soda or ingest a piece of wheat toast. Here is why. When you starve, your body goes into fat storage mode. So if you then give it a starch, it just converts it to sugar. NO bueno. Additionally if you give it a diet soda, the Sucralose or aspartame messes with your brain and makes you crave sugar. ALL BAD. So instead, eat every three hours but feed your body with the RIGHT foods in small portions. You will rev up your metabolism and the cravings will diminish – I am serious. Instead of reaching for a bag of chips, try a sliced avocado. Drizzle it with a little olive oil and quinoa and a pinch of salt – so good. Have some blueberries. Or try some having some artichoke and olives over a bed of chicken and then have walnuts with strawberry toppings on greek yogurt. YUM. I mean your body will not know what happened. Suddenly your skin is glowing, your brain is working and you aren’t hungry. Huh? Oh and your jeans fit – BONUS. Food science, it’s so strange isn’t it?!
