The "Bad" Food Conundrum: Avoiding Health and Fitness Mistakes When You're Over 40

Avoiding Health and Fitness Mistakes When You're Over 40

Well, well, my tweenior citizen friend! Gather 'round and let me share a tale that'll surely make you chuckle and nod your head in agreement.

Imagine this: You've hit a milestone. Yep, you're an adult over the age of 40, or maybe even hitting the big 5-0. And you've made a bold decision to (re)start your healthy lifestyle. You've got a master plan lined up—working out, eating cleaner, guzzling that H2O, and even hitting the sack early. You're going all out, my friend!

But hold your horses. Before that glorious day arrives, guess what happens?

You feel the overwhelming urge to devour every single one of your favorite foods. Why, you ask? Well, it's like a pre-celebration before the healthier routine kicks in. You figure once you embark on this journey, those indulgences will be off-limits. So might as well savor them while you still can, right?

And boy, do you savor those delectable treats with gusto. I mean, who can resist their tempting appeal? We've all been there.

Now, let me introduce you to a term for this behavior: Last Supper-ing.

Yep, it has a name.

But here's the kicker, my friend—it's a habit that can hinder your progress in two major ways!

First off, on a practical level, indulging in all your favorites can lead to some unwanted weight gain. Yep, those extra bites can steer you away from your goals before you've even begun. Talk about a setback, right?

But here's the real problem, my astute reader: it's the dreaded "all-or-nothing" mindset.

When you start labeling foods as "good" or "bad," it becomes incredibly difficult to stick with your plan. It's like setting yourself up for failure right off the bat.

Let me illustrate this with a mouthwatering example...

Imagine your ultimate weakness is pizza. Oh, the glorious cheesy goodness! Suddenly, you find yourself not only forbidding pizza but also actively banishing thoughts of it. And what happens next? Your mind becomes fixated on PIZZA, my friend. The cravings hit you like a ton of bricks.

But fear not, there is a better tactic for you to try. It's all about finding a sustainable solution that works for the long haul. Rather than completely cutting out your favorite foods, let's include them in moderation.

Yes, you heard me right—nothing is off-limits forever. Can you believe it? winks
