IF IT WASN'T EASY...

Hi I'm Shannon! I'm 21 years old and recently graduated from college and moved to Ft Lauderdale, Florida where I live with my boyfriend right on the beach. I'm working on maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle while getting leaner, fitter, and stronger by lifting heavy weights and eating mostly high-protein, lower-carb and averaging 2500-3000 calories per day. 5'8, 142 lbs, 38-25-28, size 2-4. Check out my other blog as well for more health and fitness related posts: http://livingwellthebestrevenge.wordpress.com/
Who I Follow

Wrong. Even setting aside the fact that “fat” and “junk food” are subjective terms, this statement is simply untrue. You will gain weight if you eat more than your caloric needs, period. You can “get fat” eating vegan, low-carb, Paleo, organic, nothing but fruits and vegetables. You can get skinny eating nothing but twinkies.

Granted, it’s easier to gain weight when your diet consists primarily of calorie-dense, nutritionally-devoid foods. But incorporating some treats into your diet won’t suddenly make you blow up like a balloon. It’s less about the individual foods you eat and more about how they fit into your diet as a whole.

    that’s partially true. what makes you gain weight is overeating and expending more calories than you are consuming. so...
