How I Eat Donuts, Stay Fit and Stay Healthy…

Share This Post

This question comes up on IG live all the time…

So figured it was time to write about it.

I had a really unhealthy relationship with food and it wasn’t until my doctor told me I had high cholesterol at the age of 22 and I will need to be on meds for the rest of my life.
That was my wake up call.
I knew if I opted out for meds… that would lead to more health issues so I did something, I never thought was possible, I changed my eating habits.

It was a blessing in disguise. I use to binge eat like crazy… 

Every week, it would be 4 hours in the gym A DAY, eat a cheeseburger and ice cream daily, then Friday to Sunday, it was a free for all So I would eat everything in sight. My relationship was food was so unhealthy because I had dieted so hard in the past.

In my head, I felt I deserved all these treats because I ate so clean for so long. And that was the issue… I looked at food as just a treat instead of actual fuel. I hardly ate clean at this point and just filled my body with junk food. Once, I packed on 30lbs and had high cholesterol, shitty self esteem and no energy, I knew something had to change.

I was aware that my relationship with food wasn’t the best and this is how I changed it.

Oh and I did it all while hating veggies! Shocking, right?

1. Hide greens in my protein shakes

My favorite:

  • 1c spinach
  • 1c frozen berries
  • 1tbs peanut butter
  • chocolate almond milk
  • cinnamon
  • scoop of protein powder
  • blend and enjoy

2. I would steam my veggies and mix them in with pasta

My favorite:

  • 2 turkey meatballs
  • 1c broccoli
  • 1c brown rice pasta
  • mix together, add sauce, cheese and enjoy

3. I looked at how I looked at food… fuel over pleasure…
I had deprived myself from junk for so long that I finally broke and developed a really unhealthy habit of constantly eating shit. I had to be extremely honest with myself and how I looked at food.

I stocked my fridge and pantry with healthy foods and started going out to restaurants for my cheat meals, which helped me not binge on junk food. And since, I wasn’t eating it as much, I wasn’t craving it as much, which helped me break my sugar addiction. I still enjoy my donuts once or twice a week but definitely not everyday and there are some weeks where I still binge but 80% of the time, I do pretty well and it helped big time. I lost the unwanted weight and kept it off.
