Eat to Train, Don’t Train to Eat
You really need to burn through some serious calories if you want to fairly regularly include breakfast buffets, late nights at Waffle House, and Hagen Dazs into your diet and still have ab muscles you can see. I know what you are saying “oh but what happened to moderation and portion sizes?” If you can stick to the 1/2 cup ice cream servings and small slivers of cake or eat that stuff every once in a while, go for it. For everyone else looking to lose weight, keep track of what you are eating and you may find the real reason you are having trouble losing weight – you are eating way more food than you need. Eat to fuel your body for your training program instead of training simply so you can eat more, because the later approach won’t work unless you are Michael Phelps.
