If only working off calories was as easy as putting them on in the first place. Imagine savouring a piece of your mom’s incredible homemade meatloaf, smothered in silky-smooth gravy made from scratch with a taste of oh-so-creamy mashed potatoes, and the act of just spooning that feast-laden fork into your mouth was enough to burn off what you consumed. In my mind, it would look a little like this. Alas, when I step on the scale after having enjoyed a particularly sinful meal, I’m reminded that personal trainers and yoga memberships obviously still exist for a reason.
