Did you have a bad moment indulging in too food or drink and feel guilty about it?

Shared from Erik over at Lean Bodies Consulting:

“Exercise should not be done out of guilt in response to overeating. Inflicting exercise as a punishment for dietary transgressions creates an unhealthy relationship with both food and activity.” – Coach Mark

I couldn’t agree with this more. In fact, I will be quoting this regularly.

Quite often, people tell me about how awful their weekend was with regards to eating (or drinking excessive amounts of alcohol) followed by their solution of “overtraining” the next day (or week).

In the long run, this environment becomes abusive and leads to more destructive behavior – i) even worse incidents of overeating, ii) more overtraining, iii) and more frequent patterns of points i and ii.

If you think about someone you know that follows this pattern regularly, do they look any different or make progress with their physique?

Thanks for sharing LBC! 🙂
