In a Perfect World

Would it be ideal to log each and every bite you eat…Sure. Sadly, most people that truly need to log what they eat so that it is crystal clear before them, don’t. Chances are, if you are struggling with weight loss you are not being honest with your daily dietary consumption. There are circumstances in which an underlying medical issue can interfere with weight loss; however, in most cases this is not the problem.

Let’s not even get into quality of food and simply deal with quantity. And by quantity, I mean caloric quantity. You don’t have to consume large quantities of foods to be ingesting way too many calories.


3 Oreo Cookies 160 Calories
Whopper Sandwich Meal 1180 Calories
Medium Latte 320 Calories
Avocado, Bacon & Cheese Omelette 930 Calories

Total 2590 Calories

Not a lot of food, yet calorie dense!

Do it Better:

1 Chocolate-Cherry Heart Smart Cookies from cookinglight.com 94 calories
Grown-Up Grilled Cheese Sandwiches from cookinglight.com 376 calories
Coffee w/1 Tbl. 1/2 & 1/2 and 2 tsp. sugar 50 calories
3 Egg Scramble (1 Whole, 2 Whites) W/Spinach and Cheese 200 calories
Grilled Salmon, Mixed Greens Salad & Asparagus 500 calories

More Food, Better Nutrition Total 1220 Calories

Complete transparency…honesty. You don’t need a journal to know you could make better choices.

It’s not a shocker that when I over indulge, I gain weight. I too, like 95% of the population have to be honest about my choices and know that in the end, those choices determine my reflection in the mirror. Cause and effect…everything we do, every choice we make has a similar or equal reaction.

Why EatThatMonkey.tv?

Because Life doesn't get Better...You DO!

This site is for everyone, regardless of age or gender; it is for the individual whose best is under construction and wants to lead a life of optimal health and true happiness. EatThatMonkey.tv is not about fad diets and one-size-fits-all fitness, it is about optimizing health and performance of Body (using the I.I.T Method), Mind (Got Monkey?) and Soul (food for the soul-because good health starts from the inside out). These elements don’t operate independently. We will also discuss real issues that real people face regarding body image, sleep, relationships, parenting, what happens behind closed doors, and all other things related to “life.”

I spent so many years hating my body and not accepting it as it was. To compensate for my horrible self-image and lack of self-esteem, I took fat burners, went on every ridiculous diet on the market, over exercised after binging, and even went so far as taking hypo-thyroid medication to lean down to manage an out-of-control over eating problem. I did myself a great deal of emotional and physical damage with that state of mind. My journey, my transformation has been a lot of trial and error. I live it every day. I am a human being that struggles with the same choices as everyone else and knows how to facilitate change and create a life of total wellness.

Through a great deal of self-analysis and personal responsibility I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and become a better version of myself. The road was not always smooth and it took a significant amount of effort, but every step along the way has been worth every ounce of tears, sweat, and effort that I put in. Now, I want YOU to reach down deep and find the desire to uncover and unleash the most amazing version of yourself!
