Rich Habits Lesson of the Day
Poor eating habits are the primary cause of obesity. Healthy, successful people avoid high calorie foods. In my study, 70% of these healthy, successful people ate less than 300 junk food calories a day and 72% ate candy less than twice a week. 70% of all weight loss is caused by your diet. If you’re overweight, it’s because you’re eating too much junk food and too much food that is high in calories. It’s not because you are not exercising enough. Although exercise does help you lose weight, it only accounts for 30% of your weight loss. If you want to lose weight you need to limit your consumption of calories on a daily basis. You may only need to change some of the types of food you eat or reduce your caloric intake by 300-400 calories a day. You need to make eating right a daily habit if you want to stay lean and healthy.
