Preparing = Success
Prepare your home to eat healthy. Remove the unhealthy foods that you know you’ll eat if available. Note: Your kids don’t need that junk either! They will eat what is provided.
Win the battle at the grocery store. It is easier to not purchase the item at the store than it is to avoid the temptation once that item is in your home.
Shop the perimeter of the grocery store. This is where you’ll find the “whole” foods: Fresh meats, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds.
Have your “emergency” stash. Always carry a small cooler or bag with healthy snacks in it so you don’t get stuck somewhere with nothing to eat and “have to”(eye roll) buy junk food.
Avoid drinking calories. Save your calories for higher quality foods.
Prepare simple meals. You do not have to buy a special cookbook to make healthy meals for you and your family. KISS-Keep It Simple Stupid! A healthy meal is as simple as grilling a high quality steak with a side of fresh green beans.
Eat vegetables with every meal. Yes, this includes breakfast! A good example would be a couple of over easy eggs on top of a bed of fresh baby spinach, simple and healthy.
Plan your meals. Prepare your food ahead of time, make healthy meals in bulk so you
Prioritize Protein. If fat loss is your goal, building muscle is the best way to do that. We recomend 3-5 days a week of strength training coupled with consuming 1 gram of protein per pund of lean body weight per day.
Drink More Water. Aim to drink a minimum of 64 oz per day.
