Weight Loss Step 2 - Simple Eating
Hopefully you have begun your voyage with us to fight against obesity!
You want that extra lean, buff, slender, and built beach body!
I am here to tell you that I am going on the voyage with you, you are not alone.
Let's get down to business and look at Simple Eating.
Everyone thinks that when you are on a diet/weight loss program that you have to eat complexly and chart every milligram of food that you eat.
It is simply not true!
Keeping a journal of what you eat is good for seeing results, but it is not essential.
What do we mean by Simple Eating?
Here is how we think of it: Eating a balanced diet with whole grains, fruit, vegetables, legumes, and other natural and organic foods.
Basically, we are going to intake non-toxic foods and detox our body.
Men are going to shoot for eating 2,200-2,500 calories a day.
Women are going to shoot for 1,500-1,800 calories a day.
1. Whole Grains
Whole grains are an essential source of vitamins and minerals that your body needs to survive on your diet.
They fill you up quicker without spending a lot of calories.
Water is a great resource in your weight loss arsenal because you can drink water before a meal to avoid overeating.
Water weighs more than food and your body will get used to not having sugar in soda or juice.
3. Fruit and Vegetables
Fruit and vegetables are like vitamin and mineral gold mines!
They also have a lot of fiber which means that you can get off cheap calorie wise and still be full after eating fruits and vegetables.
Legumes are seeds, beans, and nuts.
They, like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains fill you up quicker and are good for a short snack.
We suggest that you do keep them to a low roar as they are high in fat.
5. Meat and Fish
Meat and fish is a very touchy subject in a diet.
Meat can be and is full of fat, unless you get ultra lean meat that is hard to eat.
Pork and beef should be taken in maybe once every week to week and a half.
Turkey and chicken are great alternatives that taste fantastic.
Fish are great sources of omega 3 fish oil that are essential for fighting free radicals in your body and are great for your health.
6. Sugar, Salt, and Fat
Sugar, salt, and fat are the three worst parts about our diet that we could ever eat.
Eliminating them throughout our journey will boost your weight loss by over 200%.
If you can get used to not drinking and eating sugary drinks and candy, then you will feel better and lose weight easier.
Get used to not putting salt on your food, again it will be easier to lose weight.
