On another note, I’ve been watching short videos Bobby Flay made called Bobby Flay Fit. He has seven video where he shows what he does to stay fit being surrounded by food every day. They are really inspiring and he says several times how he has to be disciplined about how much food he eats since he tastes so many of the dishes in his restaurants and of course with a super busy schedule how he fits exercise in too. Very inspiring – HERE IS THE LINK to those videos.
