What do you think is harder: eating healthy or working out consistently?
Good question.I like to enjoy healthy eating and working out.
However, working out consistently is a bit challenging due to tight schedule.
Healthy eating is much easier as I just keep good quality snacks and food in my surroundings and I end up eating that. I take frequent healthy snacks to avoid the hunger pangs.
Eating healthy is harder for me. I am a food lover. I'm not a picky eater, so I'll eat whatever is available and not go out of my way to eat right.
I also love working out, so it's not hard for me to maintain a schedule. For me, an hour or 2 in the gym, 3-4 days a week, is a release from the day-to-day grind.
I think it depends on the day, or the week. Sometimes I have no desire for unhealthy foods, but every once in a while there are a series of days where it seems easier to indulge (say, the holidays?)
Overall, it would have to be healthy eating or not overeating for me. When it comes to working out, my tendency is to do too much, rather than the opposite.
I can motivate myself to go to the gym at least 3 days per week. However, it takes everything in me not to stop on the way home for a breakfast burrito. Eating healthy is jsut as important as exercise, but much harder to implement.
For me, working out consistently, no doubt.
Mainly because it either involves waking up earlier than I have to or mustering the motivation after a tiring work day.
To stay consistent with a work out, I usually have to find someone who wants to do it with me that way we can motivate one another. If I know someone is depending on me, I am much more motivated.
For me eating healthfully is much more difficult. Probably because I have developed the ability to place working out into my schedule. However, I forget to plan ahead when I eat - it's hard to eat healthfully when you don't think about it until you're already famished.
I agree that working out seems to be a lot easier for me, especially since when you think that it takes 35 minutes of running to work off a piece of cake, versus it take 15 minutes to eat that piece of cake. I feel like we can do so much more damage with unhealthy eating. I try to do both and encourage everyone to continue to do the best you can.
I love food and find it a struggle to say no to the carbs. Eating healthily is way harder than working out in my opinion. But I sometimes use working out as a way to justify eating rubbish - - naughty I know.
When in the groove they go hand in hand, when off routine then exercise is harder. Food allergies really restrict what I can eat. Thankfully I don't have a sweet tooth so all the baked goods with gluten and dairy are not usually too tempting.
For me, it is eating healthy. I enjoy working out, so that isn't usually too much trouble. I have a big-time sweet tooth, and that is what usually gets me.
Eating healthy can be easier than working out consistently. It does need lots of effort on your part to work out consistently, but you can eat healthy once your mindset is fixed on the thought that it will improve your health.
working out consistently...
Eating healthy takes less effort in my opinion.
Working out consistently would be really tiresome. It would be like having a job. There's so much effort to have to put into body movements, etc.
If I decided to eat healthy, in time I would get used to it.
It would take me longer to get used to working out consistently.
Actually I would call it even. This past Summer I lost all motivation to exercise and it really bothered me but I just could not get into it. I prayed about it and now I'm back on track.
However, I find that when I'm not exercising regularly I tend to not eat healthily either which compounds the situation.
So for me eating healthily does not motivate me to exercise but exercising motivates me to eat better.
They're both a challenge but worthy of constantly working at.
Definitely eating healthy for me. It takes quite a bit of willpower and the results don't show as easily as a good couple weeks of working out.
Working out would seem to be the hardest. I've leared that when I eat right I start to lose a taste for fatty foods. It like your brain developed a new lunch menu.

Why do people say that healthy eating is expensive?

So, I'm a pretty healthy eater (mostly), and I try to keep full with fiber-rich foods (whole grains, beans, etc), drinking water, and trying to eat lots of veggies, but I feel hungry all the time. I'm also trying to eat smaller meals more often, which I know is good, but sometimes is harder....

With all the knowledge we have about bad food, why do we still continue to eat bad food?Unhealthy food causes malutrition, disease and a bunch of problems if eaten on a regular basis... Why do we (The the US) continue to eat it?

What do find are the biggest challenges to eating "healthy"?I say healthy in quotes because I think that eating healthy differs from person to person. I think we all have our own personal health goals or medical restrictions that help define what is healthy to us. Your answer can either...
