Diets are dumb

There are a couple things I have been 100% sure of my entire life. One of which is "diets are dumb." Women, especially, find themselves going on a diet or slimming down for that special occasion. It is silly. Unfortunately, that "quick" weight you lost will just get piled back on.. and then some.

Our bodies need nutrients...proteins, carbs & fats. Yes, I said fats. So many people think if they cut all fat from their diet or eat low-fat items that they will lose weight or be healthy. That way of thinking is wrongggggggggg. Infact, a lot of low-fat items have more calories than the normal items.

By eating a balanced meal, with a protein, carb & fat, you will stay fuller longer.

I'm starting to preach (clearly I'm passionate about health ha!) I'm going to shut my yapper & share this photo with you.

Every diet I've ever heard of is short-term... "do this for 16 days... 3 months" blah blah blah. How about giving your body the treatment it deserves? I love that idea. Skinny Rules for a lifetime. Put healthy foods into your body in order to get a healthy body. Your body will love you, trust me.


  1. love this post! it's funny how there's still so many girls who don't understand how you have to eat fat to burn fat. it's also funny how people go on a diet for 2 weeks basically starve themselves, then to put all the weight back on when they start eating. there's no way around it- you have to start being healthy for life :)
    anyway, I love your blog! found it today :)

    xo, samantha
