The struggles of being on a diet best described using music

2015-01-30 06:00

Cape Town – It’s probably that time of year, where your New Year’s resolution of going on a diet is failing…

You think about food 24/7? Who needs coffee when there's bacon and eggs? Or exercise when you climb two flights of stairs to work?

Here at Channel24 we understand your needs and found some songs that perfectly sum up the struggle of being on a diet.

From the contemplation stage of "New year, new me" to "Oh fuck it, it's Monday and I need cake!."

Contemplation stage (Should I, Shouldn’t I?...)

Try - Pink

"Where there is desire, there is gonna be a flame, where there is a flame, someone's bound to get burned, but just because it burns, doesn't mean you're gonna die, you've gotta get up and try, and try, and try, gotta get up and try, and try, and try."

Preparation stage (Okay, let’s do it!)

She wolf - Shakira

"There's a she wolf in your closet, open up and set her free, there's a she wolf in your closet, let it out so it can breathe, S.O.S. she's in disguise, coming out, coming out, coming out".

Action stage (I am so pumped! Sweating never felt so good!)

Work Bitch – Britney Spears

"You want a hot body? You want a Bugatti? You want a Maserati? You better work bitch! You want a Lamborghini? Sippin' martinis? Look hot in a bikini? You better work bitch."

Maintenance stage (Can’t get up, feeling so sore, but damn I think my thighs look thinner)

Flawless - Beyoncé

"I woke up like this, I woke up like this, we flawless, ladies tell 'em, say I look so good tonight, God damn, God damn, say I look so good tonight, God damn, God damn, God damn."

Give up stage (WHAT! It’s national chocolate cake day? YUM!)

All About That Bass – Meghan Trainor

"Yeah it's pretty clear, I ain't no size two, but I can shake it, shake it like I'm supposed to do, because I got that boom boom that all the boys chase, all the right junk in all the right places."
