Cake and Pain

April 1, 2008

To lose weight you have to cut calories and to cut calories you have to stop eating certain foods (or maybe eat less of them). Whenever someone starts a diet they always complain, "I love my cake and I can't live without it." Well you know what they say, "You can't have your cake and eat it too." "No pain no game" is also a relevant saying.

So if you want to look good, lose weight and be healthy, you'll need to live without your "cake" and you'll also need to go through some "pain." This doesn't mean you can never touch a piece of cake again and this doesn't mean you'll be hurting. This means that you will need to make some sacrifice to reach your goals, just like anything else in life.

The foods you can start to cut out of your daily routine are those without any vitamins and minerals. You can tell what foods are causing you to gain weight by how many vitamins and minerals they have. Foods such as cake, cookies, chips, soda and candy are mostly sugar. They have a very small (and by small I mean almost none) amount of nutrients and a very high amount of sugar.

Processed foods, the kind that let you do very little cooking also have small amounts of nutrients compared to fresh foods. These foods are high in calories, low in fiber and generally unhealthy. When you cut these two groups out of your diet, you'll be on your way to losing weight.
