What to do if I am about to go for my daily 2 mile walk, will I burn off the sausage I just ate and will it mess up my diet?

What to do if I am about to go for my daily 2 mile walk, will I burn off the sausage I just ate and will it mess up my diet?

Possibly: This will depend on the amount of calories in the sausage, and also on how vigorously you are doing your walk, as to whether the walk will successfully burn off all the calories. One sausage shouldn't mess up a diet, but that's going to be entirely up to you and your determination to get back on track. Good luck! ...Read more

Every time i start my diet it goes well for the 1st 4-5 days but i'll eat something bad and i feel I have to start over! how can I stop that?

Start every day: Shift your thinking from "diet" to "healthy eating" in general. Diets don't work, but lifestyle change does. If you eat something not on your food plan, simply recognize this and consider other foods that might be healthier for you. Prepare by having the healthier ones on hand. Emotional eating can be addressed in psychotherapy & group support. ...Read more

Workout 5/7 days, watch what I eat through the week, eat what I want to one day on the weekend. Is this okay? No weight gain to come from this?

Workout 5/7 days, watch what I eat through the week, eat what I want to one day on the weekend. Is this okay? No weight gain to come from this?

Not necessarily: Overeating/binging one day a week may cause you gain weight, depending on how much you eat. It would be prudent to weigh yourself daily at the same time each day and see how your proposed plan affects your weight. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
