So, Rule 22, a pretty obvious rule if you ask me; but seems like I need to keep reminding it to people, so I made it a rule.
Rule 22 to how to EAT THE CAKE AND NOT GET FAT is…..EAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No matter how many times I try to explain it, people (women) seem to think that cutting food is going to make them skinny. But it’s not going to make you skinny – it’s going to make you lose your hair and have weak bones FOREVER!
Your body is not going to recover from this; it might get better if you start to eat normal amounts again, but your body is ruined. FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!
Not eating can also cause you to stop your period. That might sound tempting but period is a woman’s best way to know if she ishealthy. If you have problems with your period or you don’t get it - you’re anything BUT healthy! So WAKE UP!
Not eating enough can slow your metabolism so if you’re not pooping at least once a day you’re not healthy. and if your poop is not shooting out of you, you’re not healthy as well.
Want to know some more fun facts? If you’re skinny because you’re not eating enough your % of body fat is super high; that’s right, when you’re not eating enough all you do is GAINING FAT! So guess what you are? FATTY!
  When you’re not eating enough all your body does is absorbing fat (your body’s easiest way to survive is by accumulating fat) so all the minerals and vitamins aren’t absorbed, so that even if you’re not skinny yet you can still die from a heart attack. (That’s what anorexic women die from..) Your heart CAN’T work without electrolytes, so if you’re not eating enough and then you add a workout to it you’re basically helping yourself to die and you don’t need to be anorexic skinny to die like that, you just need to be abuse your body.
A low blood pressure. You think you want it and a systolic blood press between 90 to 120 is healthy but if your low blood press is caused by malnutrition and not by a genetic tendency, then you get to deal with the dizziness and the feeling that you’re about to pass out every time you take a hot bath. Ever passed out in a tub? By yourself? I don’t know about you but I don’t want to happen to me.
Have you ever heard about something called Hypoglycemia? It occurs when your blood sugar is too low. By not eating enough, your blood sugar can drop. If this happens on a consistent basis, you can damage your liver or kidneys. It can even lead to brain damage and death.
Care to know some more? Because I have plenty of it, I’m very passionate about it. That’s why I found a way to EAT THE CAKE AND NOT GET FAT because not eating the cake is dangerous!
All the problems I told you about are irreversible. You might get your period back, depending on how bad your “not eating enough” was, but you might have problem with that for the rest of your life. When I got mine back every time I got my period I was puking my guts out! It hurt so much I couldn’t walk! I had to spend 3 hours on the bathroom floor because I couldn’t get up!
I’m not losing my hair as much but it didn’t grow to same size it was and my bones? I broke my hand twice in 2 years, I’m taking calcium supplement 3 times a day and I’m still on the low part of the “normal” level for calcium.
That the kind of life you want? Be skinny is fun but you got to do it smart and you NEED to eat to lose weight! You can do it in a smart way without damaging your body for life.
But in the end it’s your choice; there’s nothing I can do. Just tell you from my own experience and hope you’ll be smart enough to learn from me because you can EAT THE CAKE AND NOT GET FAT; it starts with…EATING!

I’m sorry it took me so long, but I’m always here for you, and if you need me, feel free to contact me on facebook :)
And now, ladies and gentlemen….rule 21…spoil yourself for a better skinny happy you.
Holiday season is here and if you’re like me and you have a different event every week - that you need a different dress and shoes for – you’re afraid of gaining weight. You should be! Holiday season and the chocolate and pies that come with them is why the average person puts on 20lb during a holidays season!!!
20lb is a lot! So before I start calling you fatty I’ll explain to you how you can enjoy the holidays and not gaining 20lb in the process.
How does spoiling yourself help you lose weight? For a start, if you take care of yourself, then you take care of yourself in all aspects of life; including good nutrition (a.k.a. meal preparation) and moving your bum!
I love to indulge and this is how I EAT THE CAKE AND NOT GET FAT! By spoiling myself with an haircut, face cream, foot cream, hand cream, a comfy sweater and Starbucks holidays drink (it just tastes better in those cute red cups!). There’s nothing wrong in taking care of yourself and put yourself first and this is how I do it! (LOVE Katy Perry btw)
Think about it, if you take the time in the evening to brush you hair, put night cream, cuddle up with a comfy blanket you’re probably going to wake up in the morning and want to keep taking care of yourself and that includes eat clean (no packaged food) and move your bum.
And if we’re already talking about moving your bum, what better way to burn some calories than go to all those holiday parties and DANCE IT OFF?
I see that I’m kinda all over the place now so I’ll summarise it for you:
·         Start spoiling yourself (get a haircut, take a bath, cuddle up with your other half etc.). It’s fun and it’s a great way to remind yourself to put yourself and your body before anything else (including family, friends and co-workers).
·         If you’re going to a party, DANCE, DANCE, DANCE! You’re going to have fun, burn calories and get love and respect from others!
·         Eat beforehand and when you go there, spend more time talking to people and DANCING and have one dessert. You’re having fun, you’re networking and create friends and memories and still enjoying because you have a dessert, and you know you NEED to SPOIL yourself to get skinny J
·         Don’t drink. You already know what I think about drinking because you read rule # 2.
You get drunk in front of your co-worker can cause you some problem down the road, getting drunk with your family is a great way to become a FATTY because alcohol prevent you from burning fat for 3 whole days. So think about it.

·         Eat in moderation! Move your bum! Enjoy the holidays.
