Burning Fat without EVEN thinking about Calories!
- Consume a diet 33% protein, 33% carbs, and 33% fat.
- Increase ratio of protein to carbs in as many meals as possible. Tip: Lean meat, fish, cottage cheese, yogurt, and protein shakes can be the foundation of protein in the diet.
- Eat HIGH Protein ALL DAY LONG. However, consume more of your carbs in the morning, and more of your fats in the afternoon for optimal nutrient efficiency. For example, enjoy a bowl of oatmeal in the morning, and then have almonds as a snack in the afternoon.
- Decrease overall carbohydrates consumption. EXCEPTION: High density carbohydrates are beneficial to body composition. You can eat as many vegetables, fruits, and greens as you want. In addition, beans and oatmeal are also especially healthy and give great energy for the days events.
- MORE Fiber! Okay, there is such a thing as too much fiber, but don’t ask me about that, pal! Anyway, 25 grams fiber per day is a healthy amount, keeps you regular and relatively detoxified. More importantly, fiber also controls your blood sugar so you are no longer a slave to hunger!
- Exercise, Exercise, Exercise! No brainer here. More energy expended on physical activity has a whole range of health benefits as well as promoting the BURNING of PURE fat!
- Surround yourself with fit people. Yes, genetics plays a role, but lifestyle is key. Does your current support system encourage your weight loss or are their negative habits toxic? Communication helps, so lets make sure we’re all on the same page about each other’s health. Personally, I like when my family, friends, and girlfriends enjoys living healthy with me. I suppose our healthy habits rub off on each other. In fact, my father’s dedication to exercise and running accomplishments have inspired me for years.
My final points are simple and practical
- Exercise and Nutrition reduce incidence of nearly every disease known to man.
- Sick family is emotionally painful, while a sick healthcare system is expensive.
- Fitness is a path to vitality that hundreds of millions are traveling, but each experience is unique as the person behind the subcutaneous fat.
- Do it for you, not for anyone else.
- Fitness can be highly satisfying, improve relationships, and SAVE YOU TONS OF MONEY!
I look toward the future, knowing we’re all on the same team.
