We usually think of weight loss as the product of a “diet” (overly restrictive guidelines that keep us feeling deprived of our favorite foods until we give up and go back to what we were doing before).
The key to lifelong success is to fill up on real food (things like fiber rich vegetables, lean protein and healthy fats) and take a detour to those things you “just can’t live without” at least once or twice a week. (That’s right! It’s o.k. to swerve every week as long as you get right back on track the next day.)
My nutrition method is very simple. It relies on feeding your body consistently. You see, when you give your body the nutrients it actually needs from whole food sources like lean protein and vegetables, all those “cravings” you were having instantly and miraculously disappear.
Success on this program does require that you eliminate or restrict certain refined and processed “foods” like chips, cookies, crackers, sodas and candy temporarily to break the addictive patterns. Once your blood sugar is stabilized you can have your favorites every single week and still lose weight!
Combine those tips with a safe, effective workout program that includes strength training and cardiovascular exercise and you have a plan that will get results!
