I have been hearing about all kinds of things that can make you gain weight. What ever happened to calories in versus calories out. I know some things can make you retain water - too much salt, PMS!, and some medications. But now I have started a list of other things they say will make you gain weight.
Too much fat intake
Too much Salt
Too much sugar
Too little sleep (Can I use this as my excuse to not get up for 5:30 a.m. Spinning class??)Preservatives
Not enough water
Eating and drinking out of plastic (WHAT???) Yup, this is the lastest. Plastic will give us cancer, kill the environment and make us fat!

So the question becomes is there anything that doesn't make us gain weight? And what things can help promote weight loss that is healthy (and legal)? Brings me back to calories in and calories out.And on that note, I better put my water in a glass, have some fruit, do some yoga to destress, and get a good 8 hours of sleep. BA HA HA HA!!!! I guess the reality is I will just have to get up for 5:30 a.m. Spin class!
