How do you eat donuts daily and stay lean?
This question comes up on IG live all the time…
So figured it was time to write about it.
I don’t eat donuts daily because I had high cholesterol in the past.
Which was actually a blessing in disguise. I use to binge eat like crazy! And this helped break my sugar addiction…and not on purpose!
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. So I had to start focusing on my mindset about food in order to start a real health and fitness journey. I knew in my heart, I couldn’t best serve others until I got this under control.
So now, my mindset about food was, it is fuel, this is how I heal, perform and fuel through my day so let’s clean it up to be at peak state. Once, I did that and become more mindful about what I put in my body, things really changed.
I was still having sugar cravings like crazy but instead of eating something awful like sour patch kids, I would have a fruit. Then the cravings slowly started going away. I stopped going down the ice cream section at the store to help break that habit and it actually worked. Once, ice cream wasn’t as easily accessible, I wasn’t eating it as much.
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 a week but definitely not everyday even though there are some weeks out of the month where, I want to! haha If I can break this insane habit then you can too!
