I’m not into reality TV, and usually, I hate the celebrity ones even more.

 

But I’m a sucker for ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here’.

 

Even if you don’t watch it you’ve probably heard of it, as when it’s on it’s usually plastered all over social media, the newspapers and even daytime news.

 

A lot of the time all these things will be talking about who’s out of the jungle and also how much weight they’ve lost.

 

Yep, going into celebrity jungle causes the celebs to lose quite a bit of weight.

 

Guess how they do it?

 

A diet made up mostly CARBS (and a relatively small amount of protein).

 

Yep, they mostly eat rice and beans three times a day.

 

[What doesn’t carbs make you gain weight Vin?]

 

No, carbohydrates do not.

 

Do you know what does?

 

[What Vin?]

 

An excess amount of CALORIES.

 

(Which of course can come in the form of carbs but also proteins and fats)

 

Now, before you go eating rice and beans three times a day in order to lose weight hear me out in full.

 

You can pretty much eat whatever you like and get into great shape, you simply have to eat fewer calories than you burn each day.

 

Sure to do that without going hungry and to be a healthy individual you’ll need to make sure at least 80% of the food you eat comes from nutritious sources but apart from that and getting enough protein, there are no hard and fast rules.

 

If you stick to the basic principles you can get into great shape and have a diet and lifestyle you enjoy.
