There are alot of overweight people at Whole Foods

That is one of my favorite things to tell people when then say that they eat healthy. There are alot of overweight people who eat healthy….they just overeat healthy food. You don’t have to eat donuts, cheetos and McDonalds to be overweight. You just have to over eat on whole wheat pasta, cous cous and fish. You don’t have to drink Dr. Pepper to gain weight. All you have to do is drink one Jamba Juice or large Odwalla fruit smoothie. Just because something is good-for-you doesn’t mean that you can eat or drink as much of it as you want.

The vast majority of our weight loss and weight gain centers around what we eat and drink. Exercise can help burn a few extra calories – and it definitley can make you feel WAY better – but if you continue to overeat on good food — even if you workout a hour a day – you can still gain weight.

Small portion size. High nutrition food. Water. Stick with these and weight loss is sure to follow. Exercise because you feel stronger afterwards – and you burn those extra calories.

So, the next time you are in Whole Foods and you think, “Hey! Organic cookies!” Remember that Organic cookies have Organic calories….
