One of the most daunting things about counting calories is the lack of knowledge on how to do it when you’re eating out.
Sure, chains like McDonald’s and Chick-Fil-A have started putting their nutritional information online, but what do you do if you go to a more local place that doesn’t have that info? Just throw your hands up in the air and eat whatever? Hell no. That’s why I’m here to help.
I’m starting a new series, ya’ll. I think this has a lot of potential to be useful both for you all and for me as well.
Basically, each post of Groceries You Should Buy (GYSB) is going to highlight a few foods/products you can find at your supermarket that are exceptionally healthy or just really amazing for dieting. If you know of any yourself, feel free to share in the comments!
In poker, there’s ups and downs. Overall, it is a skill-based game, but there is no doubt that there’s quite a bit of luck involved. Even seasoned poker professionals have weeks or months where they just keep losing money. However, while there can be streaks of bad luck, there can also be streaks of good luck. These are called heaters – periods where no matter how good or bad you play, you just keep winning money, because the cards keep falling your way.
And when you’re on a heater, common advice among poker players is: ride the heater. That is, keep playing while you’re still hot. Don’t stack up your chips and go home – why would you? Don’t you want to keep winning? Don’t you want FREE MONEY? Stay at the table and ride the heater until the wheels fall off.
What does this have to do with fitness? Well, there’s no luck in losing weight, unfortunately.
Man, I sucked this week. Big time. According to my calorie log, I only met my calorie goal of 1800 calories two days out of the past week. On two other days, I exceeded it by 500+ calories (I’m going to consider these “cheat days”).
In comparison, I have had 1 other cheat day in the past month. (on April 9th, 2016)
