Six Rules for Fat Loss Nutrition

Weight loss, Fat loss, Get fit, Be healthier, Drop a dress size.... What ever your goal is, it all comes back to your nutrition.

Six Rules for Fat Loss:
  1. Eat 5-6 small meals every 2-3 hours throughout the day, rather than three large meals. By eating 5 to 6 times a day it elevates your metabolism and keeps you from ever being hungry and gorging yourself at each meal because you are starving.
  2. Eat lean, clean protein at every meal (chicken breasts, egg whites, lean ground turkey, fish, whey protein powder, game meats like bison/elk). Eating protein at every meal keeps you full longer and raises your metabolism. It takes your body longer to break down protein than a starchy carb. (think pizza, crackers, bread, pasta, rice...)
  3. Add a fruit or vegetable to the meal. (Non-starchy vegetables like green leafies, berries etc..)
  4. Starchy carbohydrates should be the meal's last priority, and choose ones that have the lowest metabolic impact like oat bran, sweet potatoes, brown rice and beans.
  5. Sweets and refined grains (like white bread and pasta) have no place in a fat loss nutrition plan. If you must indulge, keep it to three bites.
  6. Include healthy fats like those from nuts (watch portion sizes), olive oil and fatty fish like salmon. To harness the fat burning power of omega-3 fats, consider a PCB-free fish oil supplement.
Great ideas to impliment into your life right now!
