The quality of the calories is far more important than the quantity.
If you’ve got an exercise ball THIS is awesome :)
Also the pouch is more about losing fat that gaining muscle with crunches. Yeah gaining muscle will cause the body to burn more calories than if you had less muscle, but this doesn’t mean you will lose the fat from your stomach. The thought that you could do crunches to lose fat from your stomach is called spot reduction and it’s an urban myth. You can’t pick and choose where your body loses weight.
Good luck love :)
You can get whole grain breads and brown rice. Just make sure on the ingredients list that the first ingredient is whole grains or 100% whole wheat. If it doesn’t say that, chances are it’s probably not. Things to fill you up would have fats or protein. Just make sure they’re the good fats (not saturated or trans). Carbs wont really fill you up for long. They’ll satisfy you, but leave you hungry not much longer.
So things with protein or healthy fats would be baking an egg inside an avocado, hummus and carrots, apple and peanut butter, tuna (or bean for my fellow veggies) salad with mayo and olives, etc. The possibilities are endless!!! :)
Just do a little. You don’t have to start by doing 30 minutes of something you’re not used to doing. Just do a few minutes. Just start. -Zen Habits

I know I know. I’m sorry I really am. I really want to get back into that, but life set in for a while. I’ve been bouncing around different apartments and job hunting, graduation, money and currently looking for my next apartment with my boyfriend. Stress stress and more stress so I put my creative side on hold until I get more stable in my life. I know excuses excuses. But I promise once I get settled, I’ll come out with a lot. I have loads of ideas and photos saved up in my computer, they just aren’t made right now. Not only do I plan on making more photos, but I plan on completely revamping my FAQ, separating them into “nutrition” and “fitness” “etc” FAQs and MAAAAAAYBEEEE a whole new theme and errythang. I have plans I swear. Just not the time or the mental capacity right now.
For sure. Don’t completely forget cardio because it’s good for heart health, but yeah focus more on weight training than cardio. Lift heavy and less reps. So about 7-10 reps heavy. Check out my FAQ for more info about hypertrophy (muscle gain) :) Also eat more calories. Clean calories, but more if you’re having trouble gaining that could be a factor too.

Idk. You tell me. <3
I have never seen my muscles more defined since I’ve been doing yoga.
It would be beneficial to limit it for sure. Unless you get whole wheat (and check the label because some breads will say whole wheat but the first ingredient is unbleached white flour… not wheat) The FIRST item on the ingredients list should be whole grain or 100% whole wheat. If it’s not, these foods will act as sugar in your body. They spike your insulin level and then drop them below normal, leaving you hungry again and willing to eat almost anything.
Funny you should mention that the are addicting because they are….. literally. Recent studies have found that foods high in saturated fat and sugar (or in this case foods that act as sugar) literally stimulate the same parts in your brain as heroin, nicotine, alcohol and other addictive substances. You are literally addicted to these foods and you get a sort of weird sense of withdrawal when you don’t eat them yes? You feel lethargic, hungry, sometimes upset and you don’t know why? You feel the need to turn to chocolate, or maybe some chips and salsa (my personal cocaine)?
So in short, yes it would be beneficial to limit white breads and pastas. They cause you to gain weight quicker and act as sugars in the digestive process. Don’t get discouraged if you have a hard time. You are probably literally addicted to these foods. I know I am. Slow and steady wins the race. You may fall off the wagon from time to time, but you will cross that finish line. <3
