What's the Better Diet Cheat, Wine or Pizza? As Seen on WGN TV Chicago




For more visit http://www.StepItUpwithSteph.com If you’re like many Americans, you’ve probably made a healthy New Year’s resolution (or two!) But what can you do if you’re short on time and looking to choose between the lesser of two unhealthy evils? We’ve brought in Health & Fitness Expert Stephanie Mansour from Step It Up with Steph to help us decode the lesser of two evils: So Stephanie, you’ve got some unhealthy pairings, and you’re going to tell us which one we should pick if we HAD to make a choice. Some of us are limited by time, and others are limited by feeling like we don’t want to have to be strict or perfect in our diets 100% of the time. That’s right! I’ve got six pairs of “evils” and I’ll explain which one of them is worse than the other one! Overeating or overdrinking? Overdrinking is worse: Your body cannot store alcohol as energy or fuel to use later, and therefore all of your body’s efforts move away from burning fat and go towards burning the alcohol. Too much fat or too much sugar? Believe it or not, there ARE healthy fats! That’s why sugar is worse: Sugar is proven to contribute to weight gain, and it sets your body up on a hamster wheel for weight loss. Skipping cardio or skipping strength training? Especially if you’re looking to burn fat, skipping strength training is worse. You need to build muscle in order to burn fat. Doing extra cardio will burn calories in the moment, but the second you hop off the treadmill, you’ll stop burning calories, which is the opposite of what happens when you’re doing strength training. DVD Too much coffee or too much chocolate? Coffee stays in your system for hours, and contributes to anxiety disorders and even fatiguing the body over time. By training the body to depend on caffeine, you’re causing yourself to be unhealthy. Chocolate does have health benefits, and going overboard every now and then isn’t going to break your waistline. An extra slice of pizza or an extra glass of wine? This can be a tough one…it depends what’s on the pizza! Let me explain… M & Ms or a Snickers bar (or any candy bar with nuts)? M & Ms, or any candy with little or no protein, is worse than a Snickers Bar. At least that bar has protein in it, thanks to the nuts! If you’re in a pinch, yes, I am giving you permission to indulge in the Candy bar! Or better yet, try a Kind Bar with protein in it. It has ingredients you can see and pronounce, and will satisfy that chocolate craving. Lose weight in 2016 and get Steph’s Free weight loss guide!
