Can I Eat Pizza, Lose Weight AND Be Healthy?

I eat pizza, I drink red wine (and the occasional espresso martinis) I love burgers, I love croissants, I’m a sucker for hot chips, and last weekend I smashed  hot cross buns.

 

What! But Penny, I thought you were all about the clean food?

 

“Pfft” (insert eye roll)

 

Let me ask you, can you eat clean foods, for THE REST OF YOUR LIFE? That’s gunna be one lonnnnnng boring life if you ask me.

 

“How can you follow The Hormone Connection method but eat naughty food AND STILL stay in shape and be healthy?”

 

This is what I am asked regularly.

 

I’m also asked……

  • Can I still eat chocolate on The Hormone Connection?
  • Can I have a cheat meal/day off on The Hormone Connection?
  • Can I drink wine on The Hormone Connection?
  • Can I eat carbs on The Hormone Connection?
  • Is The Hormone Connection low calorie or rabbit food?

 

Let me tell you a secret.

 

Food is food.

 

The body doesn’t actually know the difference between a burger and a beef sandwich. It’s the mind and the preconditioned “bad food” vs “good food” that knows the difference. I’m not saying that calories and fat gain come from a bad conscience. But I’ll pose you the question, would you stick to way of eating if it allowed you to have your favorite foods every now and again? Or are you happy to be stuck in a self-destructive pattern of eating clean for a few days/weeks and then falling off the wagon?

 

What if I told you that you didn’t have to eat so clean? All. The. Time.

A)   That’s exhausting.

B)   That’s no fun.

C)   It’s not actually (scientifically) proven to get you the same results.

 

So I’m finding that many people are afraid to start their The Hormone Connection journey as they think its some crazy restricted diet. Trust me. The Hormone Connection was written by me. I am a foodie. I love my desserts. I love the odd snickers bar. And I love a good weekend off.

 

The Hormone Connection, my methods, are about correcting the hormone imbalances that make us store body-fat, that make us sluggish and managing life style choices that effect the power of our metabolism.

 

Once your metabolism is corrected (and even along the way)

 

Eat all the pizza.

 

No, no, I’m kidding.

 

But seriously, the secret to correcting health and burning fat is: Eating healthy most of the time, and eating naughty foods sometimes – over a long period whilst staying in a calorie deficit. Resulting in long-term lifestyle changes without deprivation or going nuts along the way.

 

Think of it this way, it’s not the pizza that’s making someone unwell and overweight. It’s the impact of the pizza on a person that has poor gut flora, that is inflamed, that has a damaged or slow metabolism and has a wonky hormone profile. A healthy, well hormonally balanced person simply burns the pizza for what it is…….macros (protein, fats, carbs). Food for thought isn’t it? Pun intended.

 

So my point is, eat pizza, and start your Hormone Connection journey TODAY!
