When getting in shape it’s not just working out that is an element in staying healthy; it is diet as well. Just because you went to the gym today doesn’t mean you should stuff your face; think of taking care of your body like taking care of a car, just because the car is clean, red and shiny, turns on and moves doesn’t mean there isn’t a problem with the engine because you’ve been getting the wrong fuel for the car.
Getting in shape is a lot like taking care of your car because, you could look great but you could have high cholesterol that you didn’t even notice because you are rocking that little black dress! It’s a whole process that will not happen overnight. Luckily, there are tons of heart healthy recipes that are simple and delicious. Just because you want to take care of yourself doesn’t mean you have to eat like a rabbit all the time.
