If you were to Google “ways to lose weight” you would most likely come up with thousands of different tips, tricks, fad diets etc. With all of the crazy nutrition information out there, it can be difficult to determine which approach is best.
The fact of the matter is that different things work for different people, but there are a few tips I have found to be extremely helpful with clients and myself.
This reset is to take weight loss back to basics. The basis of this reset is to do the following:
- Stop grazing in between meals- having three balanced and filling meals with each macronutrient (fat, carbs, and protein) keeps blood sugar from spiking and falling thus energy levels stay elevated and hunger is kept at bay.
- 80/20 rule with each meal- 80% of each meal consists of one ingredient whole foods that either came from nature or had a mother (i.e. vegetables, fruits, chicken, turkey, etc.) and 20% of the meal may come from not so natural choices. For example, I could have a big salad with lots of veggies, chicken, walnuts, EVOO and balsamic vinegar. This would be my 80% and then a mini bag of popchips on the side would be my 20%.
- Workout 4-5x/week- I will share my workouts throughout the week on my Instagram @CrunchandLunch
- Keep it balanced! Losing weight is a lifestyle adjustment and you should be able to still go out and have fun while achieving your goals. I will be sharing tips to help balance a healthy diet while eating out, drinking, etc.
I will be sharing my meals, recipes, workouts, and other great tips for the next 8 weeks on my Instagram @CrunchandLunch.
Hope to see you there!!
