You Really Are What You Eat
Did you know that the quality of food that you eat, and the frequency of when you eat these foods have a direct effect on how healthy your metabolism functions and exactly how much weight you lose?
The Truth About Nutrition
These "2" big factors play a role in how much weight you actually lose:
*Factor #1 The Quality Of The Food You Eat: Not all foods are created equal! With that in mind, be sure to eat a ton of healthy fruits, seeds, nuts, and veggies while making an effort to avoid any and all processed foods. If you're not sure if you should eat a certain food or not ask yourself if you can find it in nature, and if you can't, don't eat it! It really is that simple.
*Factor #2 The Timing Of The Food You Eat: Contrary to popular belief, eating 2-3 times a day is hurting your metabolism a lot more than it's actually helping it. Do you know why? The answer is simple – your body only remembers the last time that you ate, and when you space your meals out 8-15 hours apart your body is under the false impression that it's going into starvation mode. When that happens, your body begins to store the excess calories that you consume as stubborn belly fat to protect you, and you begin to silently sabotage your fat loss efforts. On that note, make sure to take the normal amount of calories that you would consume and space them out between 5-6 meals a day eating every 2-3 hours and you will notice an immediate boost in the speed of your metabolism.
But What About My Cravings?
One of the wonderful things about retraining your metabolism by eating healthier foods more frequently besides weight loss has to do with the fact that you get to have a cheat meal one day a week! Whether you're craving a big slice of chocolate cake, or you would like to sink your teeth into a big slice of pizza, cheat meals can help you stay on track in a very powerful way!
*Cheat meals help you psychologically because they keep you sane, and provide you balance in your life so that you stay on track, and don't overindulge during the week.*Cheat meals provide you with a structured caloric spike that will kick your metabolism into high gear so that you can continue to speed up your metabolism faster and faster instead of plateauing from eating a low-calorie diet all the time.
On that note, remember you are what you eat so make sure that you choose the foods that you eat wisely!
If the food choices that you make aren't moving you one step closer to your weight loss goals, then they are moving you farther and farther away from them so make sure that you take heed to today's nutritional advice and start getting yourself the weight loss results that you're looking for!
Remember, nutrition is just one of the key ingredients to achieving your fat loss goals...
