How many times have you tried to lose weight? was it easy or hard to follow the diet?
We all know that nutrition plays an important role on fat loss, getting in shape and health in general but it doesn´t need to be hard, actually if it´s hard we won´t follow it for as long as we need and what we really need to do is develop new habits, if we´re overweight and want to lose fat then chances are that we have unhealthy habits so we need to develop new ones that make it easy for us to lose fat and get in shape and also that enjoyable and once we get to our desired weight or physique we need be able to maintain our results or keep improving in and easy and enjoyable way.
It doesn´t matter which is our current goal our nutrition program doesn´t need to change a lot, the biggest change is in adjusting calories in this case for fat loss we eat a little less, this is the way to make is simple:
1. Eliminate unhealthy foods. We all know that sweets, candies, cookies, cakes, cereal box, etc; all junk, processed, refined and fast food is unhealthy they have a lot of refined sugar and chemicals that our body doesn´t need, they lack nutrients and they only add calories to our diet.
2. Focus on eating whole, fresh foods.- When we eat whole, fresh foods we eat less and give nutrients to our body, foods like eggs, beef, pork, poultry, fish, vegetables, oats, quinoa, brown rice, corn tortilla, fruits, nuts, seeds, olives, avocado, olive oil they are all full of nutrients and lower in calories.
3. Eat less.- We need to eat less if we want to lose fat, we can create the reduction of calories from carbohydrates by eating less rice, corn tortillas, oats, brown rice.
As you see this information is something I´ve been talking about a lot, we need to develop healthy habits, the more whole and fresh foods we consume and the less process foods the best results we get and it´s not only about how we look, we´ll also feel great. This doesn´t mean that we won´t eat donuts, cakes or any of our favorite meal or snack we can still eat them every once in a while some of us can have one of them once a week others maybe once every two weeks, it all depends of how our body responds to be able to maintain an amazing physique. For fat loss it may be better to have a cheat meal once every 2 weeks to get better results, some of us are not able to handle a cheat meal every week specially when we´re beginning a fat loss program, with time we will be able to have a cheat meal and enjoy our favorite dish, dessert or snack once a week or even more. In the case of snacks and desserts it´s better to find healthy options, the best option is to cook your own cakes, cookies, etc following recipes that use whole ingredients so that you avoid all extra ingredients that are unhealthy, if you can´t cook there are some healthy options for so many snacks that are great options.
We don´t need to complicate things if we stick with the basics and develop good habits then it´s simple and it becomes effortless and enjoyable, processed and fast foods are not good for us so there´s no reason to consume them, we need to give nutrients to our body which come from whole, fresh, healthy foods when we focus on those there´s no reason to make being changes, just a small adjustment on the amount we eat is all we need.
