Yesterday I ordered a green tea and a green juice from Starbucks. The lady looked at me and said you must be the healthiest customer we have. I laughed but then she sincerely asked me how I do it? I said “well, a second ago I almost grabbed a chicken pinini, then an apple fritter but then I thought about who I want to be and immediately grabbed the green drink. As much as I wanted that bread I made the decision within 5 seconds not to have it. The urge for sugar will always be there – the stuff is more addictive than cocaine. The change you’re seeking on the surface always needs to happen from within. It’s up to you to condition yourself. To train your brain and start working on self-discipline. 13 years as a personal trainer I’m telling you that’s the biggest secret of all.
