There’s plenty to worry about today…….

Today there’s plenty to worry about, your savings is disappearing, will you have a job tomorrow, and how will I live without a job. Everything cost so…much. If I lose my job I lose my insurance. I’m bringing this up now because worrying will cause you to eat the wrong things.

I’ll explain, we tend to eat food higher in carbs and higher in calories when we’re depressed or worried about our problems. We tend to ate comfort food as a way to make our self feel better. Actually if you live in a cold climate or a climate with cold winters, we’ll tend to eat larger hot meals as a way to warm your body.

I remember when I worked in Chicago, during the winter we’d eat big meals, hot food, pastas, casseroles, hot soup before dinner instead of salad. And always meat entrees like turkey, meatloaf or chicken. I’m just guessing but it looks like 2000 calories just at dinner. It easy to over eat with lots of comfort food on the table. I always gained weight in the winter and spent all spring trying to lose it.

Fortunately I don’t eat that way anymore. I stay to about 200 calories every time I eat and then I eat 5 or 6 times a day. The idea is I can look at a small amount of food and tell how many calories are on the plate. You can’t do that with a big meal, I know I can’t.

So remember your goal and that weight loss is not that hard. You want to burn more calories than you consume. It’s as simple as that.
