Rather than worrying about eating less, focus on eating more of the fat loss foods. Fat loss foods don’t have magical fat burning properties. The reason they are so good at helping with fat loss is because they do 3 things: 1. Control hunger. They make you full quickly and keep you full for longer because they are digested slowly. 2. Raise energy. Because they are digested slowly their nutrients are absorbed in a slow steady fashion. This gives a steady supply of fuel and raises energy levels. 3. Reduce cravings. Another benefit of the slow digestion, is balanced blood sugar. This along with the sustained energy and reduced hunger means cravings are also lowered. To help you get started follow the steps below: - At breakfast switch your cereals for either eggs, a protein shake, or a leftover protein and vegetable from the night before. - At lunch trade out your sandwich and replace it with a soup or salad that is mostly vegetables and/or protein. - For snacks lose the crackers, popcorn, and candy and replace them with fruits, vegetables, animal protein, protein shakes, or high protein dairy foods (Greek Yogurt, string cheese, etc). - Replace all beverages with water, unsweet tea, or unsweet coffee. - Make sure you are eating frequent enough according to your needs.
