Living for the Weekend


            As I am writing this, I am sitting with a warm cup of coffee, curled up looking out at the ocean on a sunny Saturday morning! It’s the weekend, finally, and all I can think about is how much I am going to sleep and EAT! I can’t wait to feast this weekend on all those “unhealthy” foods that have been restricted during the week. I saved so many calories by eating less during the week, so I deserve to splurge, don’t I? It sounds crazy, but I know I’m not the only one thinking this way. If this is your mindset from Monday-Friday (or maybe only until Thursday), then you are “living for the weekend” in terms of food. This dietary habit is never a good one to follow! Let me explain why.

            The belief that you can “save up” your calories is very false. Our bodies don’t work like that! Each day you require a different amount of fuel based on your activity, body shape, size, workout routine, sleep habits, etc. Restricting calories for 4 or 5 days with the intention of “saving” those calories for the weekend often leads to weight gain and hunger control issues! When we consume less than the daily basal metabolic minimum (typically around AT LEAST 1,200 for females and 1,600 for males) our metabolism stalls which causes less calories to be burned overall, fat to be stored and possibly even muscle to be used as energy. And to make matters worse, after the few days of under eating, if you follow it up with 1 or 2 days of excessive food intake your body will hold onto all of those calories!

Think about it: by under eating you are causing your metabolism to slow down, your body and mind get used to the low calorie amount coming in so it feels the need to slow down how many calories you burn throughout the day. When you suddenly eat a large amount of food, your body is not prepared for this. Your metabolism is at a stand still and as a result, those excess calories will be stored in the body- leading to fat and weight gain. I’m sure this is not your ultimate goal!

So how do we combat this metabolic slow down? By stoking the fire!  This, in essence, means you need to EAT! Everyday I encourage you to eat the appropriate amount for your body and activity level. You need to support your body by meeting your daily caloric minimums, if not more, or else the restriction will come back to negatively impact your health and weight goals. There are more ways to boost your metabolism aside from eating enough- some ways include exercise, managing stress and getting adequate amounts of sleep. (I will address these in a later blog, so stay tuned!)  



Aside from the metabolic impact that low calorie intake has, eating too little also causes hunger signal issues. By restricting your food intake, you are ultimately telling your body that the hunger signals you are feeling (the lightheaded, grumbly tummy sensations) are wrong. You are telling yourself that your innate ability to sense hunger is false and that your brain (and the diet industry) knows what your body needs more than your own body does. This is so wrong! Your body knows what your body needs more than anyone else. So LISTEN!

 Listening to our body’s innate hunger cues is very important for establishing and maintaining a healthy relationship with food and your body! If you are hungry, don’t repress this. Honor it and respond accordingly! Listen to what your body and belly are craving. If it’s a Tuesday night and you are craving some chocolate, then allow yourself to have a small piece! Otherwise, you will obsess over that small portion of chocolate until Saturday when the treat is “allowed” and end up eating the whole bar! To avoid this weekend food feast, its best to spread your treats or “cheat” meals throughout the week so you don’t feel deprived or tempted to overeat them on the weekends. Also, by not eating enough during the week, when the weekend comes you may find yourself famished and unable to stop yourself from eating everything in sight and exceeding your caloric needs significantly! This ultimately undoes all the restricting you suffered through during the week!

Along with metabolic slow down and overeating temptations, you may notice your mood and energy take a major hit as well! By eating too little during the week, you are not providing your body enough calories to function optimally. The fuel you are eating will get diverted to life sustaining bodily functions while your attitude, mood and awareness all decline. You may notice you are grumpy, annoyed, depressed, fatigued, distracted or uninterested in your normal life when you aren’t eating enough! Mood and energy may improve on Saturday when you boost your intake, but I guarantee by Sunday you will start feeling fatigued and guilty from the bloated belly you may have from the excessive (and probably less “healthy”) food choices!


Its good to eat healthy during the week! But its NOT good to limit yourself to only a certain number of calories or foods to achieve this. Your healthy eating habits shouldn’t end on Friday. This week I challenge you to carry your healthy habits into your Saturday morning breakfast, then maybe the next week you can have a healthy breakfast and lunch, then the next week add in dinner! And while you’re at it, why not try sprinkling in a few of your favorite weekend treats into your Monday-Friday meal plan? This may help decrease your cravings for those foods and eat less of them on the the weekends!

-Happy Eating! Kristin-

    I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him

  • Jennifer Sanchez

    Many people have written articles about how they were helped but I am very grateful to this great man who brought my ex-husband back to me. This testimony is a true story and my name is Jennifer Sanchez. When I came in contact with this man was also through a testimony written about him helping with a cure for Herpes Virus and I have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life. To get back with an ex is one of the most innermost feelings many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent of two boys for almost 6 years and though my ex-husband was not staying with me and the kids I still wish someday he will return to me. This doctor I encountered is known as Dr. Odunga helped me with my wishes and I am happy to write on this website that my ex-husband is back with me. I am very happy to share the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. I don’t know what others might feel about getting their ex back in their life but I always know there is a blessing in disguise with just a single re-connection with an ex. If you want to successfully get back with your ex or facing an infertility problem, contact this great man at Or WhatsApp/Call +2348167159012 and share an awesome testimony too just as I did
