Bye, Bye Big Mac Girl!
I love cheese burgers. More specifically Big Macs. I had to have those delicious, processed, fake meals at McDonald’s at least twice a week; they made me happy while eating them and miserable after but I kept coming back for more, my husband even started calling me his Big Mac girl. When I began my fitness journey three years ago, I was doing it for all the wrong reasons, so I kept doing the minimum and expecting great results. Results never came. I was working out twice a week and eating horrible, I thought I was entitled to my Big Macs (fries and soda with that of course) since I was working so hard at the gym (ha!). I soon realized that I was doing it wrong and began to change, I became passionate about exercise and began working out four to six times a week and was excited about eating healthy but it wasn’t until recently that I finally figured out what kind of diet I wanted to follow. I looked into different diets, even considered being a vegetarian but decided against it. I began learning about all the damaging chemicals that are found in the food we eat and now I know why there’s so many people sick with cancer and diabetes, we are slowly poisoning our bodies to death. I will no longer hurt my body by eating processed food so I’ve decided to eat real food instead. I will try to make most of my meals from scratch, no more short cuts! I will read all the ingredients in the foods that I buy and make sure it has only around five ingredients and that they are healthy to my body. I will buy organic produce, local when I can get it and meat and poultry that are humane raised and grass fed. I have already made some changes in my diet moving towards eating real food, but it’s a process, I am excited for the day I get to say I’m completely free from processed foods. As for my Big Mac addiction, I am happy to say that I haven’t had one in at least five months; I am no longer a big mac girl.
