As you know, I L-O-V-E donuts. I Just love them. Well, I have a love/hate. Donuts helped me get to over 225+ lbs so I hate that I love them so much.
This is like a rainbow for me *sigh*
Anywho…I saw this article and I wanted to share it because everyone bashes Krispy Kreme donuts because they are calorie and fat bombs and yes there are BUT there are a lot of other things on the “food” spectrum that will blow a donut out of the water.
Here is the article: 5 foods that have more sugar than a Krispy Kreme donut.
Here are a few of my quick fix to avoiding adding extra “unknown” calories/fat/sugar to your diet.
-Read the flippin label. If you are eating something processed…spin it around and look at the calories/fat/sugar. If your eating yogurt and it has over 20 grams of sugar…step away!
-Don’t drink your calories. You do not need a pumpkin spice latte or vitamin water. On that note…can we all please acknowledge that Vitamin Water is lame. Honestly…you’re smarter than that. If you are so worried about getting your vitamins try eating real food OR take a multi vitamin.
-Be salad savy. Some salad dressings pack a wack (bwahahaha-I type like I speak!) of calories/suga/fat. So if you think you are starving with salad…think again. Dressing on the side, and nothing creamy.
-Don’t get saucy! Sauces, dips, spreads can be l-o-a-d-e-d. Stop putting 12 coats of bbq sauce on your chicken. You are not painting the side of your house.
If you make small changes everyday you will start to feel and see the results. You will not feel deprived, I promise.
Be smarter about what you are doing…that is my safety messaging for the day!!
Be safe and healthy out there ; )
