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.
Time and time again I see people struggling to lose weight eating very few calories and doing tons of cardio. What gives? Shouldn’t the pounds be dropping? Well, not if your metabolism has been damaged through a faulty fitness lifestyle. Here’s what you need to know about your metabolism and how to fix it.
What Causes a Broken Metabolism?
To put it simply, a damaged metabolism is typically caused by prolonged excessive calorie restriction combined with excessive physical activity.
Eating healthy and training hard at the gym can go to waste if you're not managing your stress. Stress causes the hormone cortisol to be released which can cause increased abdominal fat, elevated blood pressure, decreased immune system and blood sugar imbalance. Try attending a yoga class or tai chi, mediation and being in nature.

Researchers say you can measure a person’s risk of obesity by measuring his or her soda intake. Versus people who don’t drink sweetened sodas, here’s what your daily intake means:
½ can = 26 percent increased risk of being overweight or obese
½ to 1 can = 30.4 percent increased risk
An amalgamation of numerous messages or emails I receive:
What is the best way to eat to get shredded abs and be healthy? Can you please send me your client's plan so I can follow it too?
- There is no single, perfect way to eat. In other words, there is no such thing as a "perfect diet" or a "perfect plan". If there was, we would all be eating the exact same thing and every single one of us on the planet would be looking pretty darn fantastic every single day...forever.
When I construct a program it is based on the individual.
It's not always possible to eat your meals and snacks at the dinner table, but when you eat on the run or while doing something else, you're more likely to consume extra calories. To prevent weight gain, avoid munching in these five places.
1.Avoid most saturated fats.
2.Avoid all trans fats.
3.Eat only 100% whole grains.
4.Eliminate added sugar.
5.Never eat sugar syrups (high fructose corn syrup is part of this felonious grouping)
REMEMBER SUGAR IS THE ENEMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
