Nadine Gourkow Tips on Avoiding Relationship Weight Gain

Honeymoon Phase

When you are first starting out in a relationship, everything is wonderful. The flowers, the chocolates, the dates, the sitting around kissing; what’s not to love? Over the years that follow, those warm fluffy feelings might just turn into a warm fluffy body. Nadine Gourkow is providing you with some advice to avoid the soft and gooey feelings turning into a soft and gooey figure.

Buckle Down

The first step to any recovery is to admit you have a problem. The second step is coming up with a plan to fix the problem. If you follow the steps below, you will restore your body to the dating days and be happy you did so.

  1. Stop eating out – You hear me! Nothing good can come from a fast food restaurant. I can hear you now, “but McDonald’s serves salads, and those are healthy!” Right, you are when you make it at home. Recent studies have shown the salads coming from McDonald’s, or any other fast food restaurant for that matter, are just as bad as having that big ol’ double cholesterol burger with a side of defibrillators. The foods coming out the window from those places are loaded with salt and other preservatives to promote the longevity of their product to reduce the waste and cost of their product. Speaking of waste and cost, your waist and wallet will thank you to get fresh ingredients and cook at home. Besides, it is more romantic to cook with your lover than ordering from that speaker box that you can barely understand.
  2. Get out of bed and off the couch – In the time of Netflix and chill, it is quite easy to go to the above restaurant, come home, and sit in front of the television. Nadine has some friends that used to do this all the time. Now, instead of sitting home on the weekends, they head out to go fishing. Granted, that mostly involves sitting, but you can always stand and walk up and down the shoreline instead.
  3. Stop snacking – How often when you eat a snack did you truly “need to eat?” Chances are, your mind was bored and told your body to do something. Your stomach said, “Hey, I haven’t eaten in a couple of hours I say you feed me!” Instead of grabbing a snack, reach for the water. You probably aren’t drinking as much as you need to in a day.
  4. You are too happy – If you are eating foods that make you really happy, chances are you are eating the wrong foods. We call them “comfort foods” for a reason. They provide us with a certain level of comfort and that makes us happy. Gourkow is in no way suggesting you need to be sad or disappointed with the food you eat, it simply should not be euphoric.

Weigh In

That’s it, just a few simple things Nadine thinks you can do to better maintain yourself in top physical shape. Remember, it is always better to diet as a couple to diet on your own.
