If the truth be told, I don’t trust myself. That is sad, but it is true. As a result I have had to suffer through a lot of trial and error before I finally found the secret to avoiding unhealthy choices in my life. Want to know my secret?

Here it is: It is easier to avoid unhealthy foods at the supermarket than it is at home. I have tried hundreds of times to prove this false, but have failed every time. Whatever food is in my home I will eat.
Tip: Incorporating a wide range of movements is a great way to optimize results. If someone normally exercises on a treadmill, they can go running around their neighborhood.
Anyone who knows me knows I am a rather driven type of person. Nothing is done at 50%. Everything is full steam ahead. I am afraid my eating is the same way — very enthusiastic!

Since I know I can’t have junk food in my house without eating it, I have wondered about applying that same rule to other areas of life. After giving it some thought I concluded that this simple secret can be applied to many people that have problems with food.

For instance, alcoholics need to abstain 100% from alcohol. Somehow it doesn’t seem to me that an alcoholic with alcohol in their house is a very good idea. Nor does it seem it would be easy to abstain from alcohol if you are constantly surrounded by friends who seem to be drinking all the time.
Tip: When working out your abs do not only do crunches. Studies show that after 250,000 crunches only a pound of fat is burned.
If you are diabetic and need to avoid sugar, is it really a good idea to have cakes and cookies in your kitchen? If it were me I would end up having to triple my insulin dosages. Somehow opening the refrigerator to find it filled with sugary soft drinks is just not smart for a diabetic or someone with an insulin sensitivity.
Tip: You can hire a personal trainer that can help you stay motivate, that is their life! A personal trainer is a wealth of knowledge, and they can motivate you to keep going when times are tough. Although not for everyone, a personal trainer can make a big impact.
If you have Celiac disease or are sensitive to gluten, is it a good idea keep bread on your dining room table? Do you really want to be making sandwiches for others?
Tip: Basic bodybuilding workout: To build muscle mass, lift more weight for fewer reps. Focus on the area that you desire to increase mass in and do not divert from that region.
Should a person with heart disease work in a fast food restaurant? They know they have to avoid trans fats — do they really want to smell the french fries and the burgers cooking all day? I sure wouldn’t.
Tip: As you lift weights up above your head, flex your glutes with each rep. This is a good way to work your buttocks area and also helps you stay safe by making the body work to position itself most effectively.
Well, there is my big secret. I am better off not bringing unhealthy foods into my home because if they are there I will eventually eat them. I have found when I stick to that rule I am rewarded with positive results.
Tip: Motivation is necessary to diet successfully. Seeing and feeling the results of your efforts provides one type of motivation.
Here’s secret number two: The opposite is also true. When my kitchen is filled with only healthy foods, I will eat them. And let’s take it a step farther. I know that exercise is important to good health. When I have exercise equipment in my home I am much more likely to use it!
Tip: Exercise daily, even on the weekends. It is not true that you should forget about working out on the weekends.
If you want to keep the pounds off and stay healthy, then share in my little secret and keep unhealthy choices out of hour house. Instead surround yourself with healthy things.
It’s just that simple and it really works.
