I know I promised to update you on our studio extensions this week…
But as it often happens with building works it didn’t get done as quick as we would have hoped it would.
So instead of images of sweaty builder…backsides, I’d rather (re)visit four quick nutrition basics.
A lot of new members come to us thinking they eat clean and healthy and know how to support their training but don’t follow the basic concepts or pay no attention to them:
1) Look at your cooking method
The way a meal is cooked determines how many calories, how much added fat, and the number of nutrients that survive. This simple factor will make or break your weight loss goal.
Avoid foods prepared like this:
Fried and battered
Processed and packaged
Doused with cream sauce
Choose foods that are prepared like this:
or even raw (ever tried finely chopped carrots or cabbage mixed in
with nuts and some olive oil or lemon juice….delicious!!)
2) Your meal should be mostly protein
The bulk of your calories should be coming from a quality source of protein. With the first guideline in mind, these will be high quality, healthfully prepared.
Good choices of protein include:
Lean red meat
3) Include lots of fiber
Fiber is a huge part of eating healthy and being lean. Fibrous foods will fill you up while delivering vitamins and nutrient in low-calorie packages. Fill at least two thirds of your plate with fibrous vegetables.
Try these forms of fiber:
4) Lay off the starches
Here’s where many well-meaning dieters lose it. The facts are simple, in order to maintain the low-carb, high protein diet required for healthy weight loss, there is no room for starchy foods.
These are also the ingredients that make the meal heavy and will make you feel more tired and exhausted after eating.
Starches to Avoid:
Rice and cereal
Bread and crackers
If you use these four strategies with every meal, I guarantee you’ll have an amazing physical transformation…
For faster results, pair your clean eating with a challenging exercise routine.
