Not everyone is motivated in that way, but that's something I don't enjoy repeating, and every time I'm looking at some bad food I stop and think, "is it worth it?"
I have actually done this before! Went for a nice hilly run in the river valley to get alcohol out of my system after a night of drinking. Very painful, but it does the trick!

Thanks for all the posts. This week has been good so far with cooking! I made a (1) salmon spinach salad, (2) ground beef with onion, zuchini, tomato, and (2) stuffed peppers with veggies and meat

What does everyone eat for breakfast??

What kind of fats do you usually eat with your meals? And snack on?

I use tons of virgin coconut oil and grass fed ghee to cook with, and I snack on dried coconut. My body happens to love the MCTs in coconut fat. That stands for medium chain triglycerides, and these fats are great fuel for not only your body, but your brain too. I also eat alot of sardines packed in olive oil, those end up being about equal amounts of protein and fat. Mmmmm, fat...

You may want to eat healthy(lose fat, gain muscle, insert other nutrition related goal here) but do you want it as much as you want sugar/processed food/other crap you know you shouldn't eat?

Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels.



Preparation is key, make enough dinner to have lunch leftovers and don't buy things that you wouldn't want yourself to eat in a moment of weakness, problem solved.
