It’s the most wonderful time of the year – Smoothie and Salad Season!
And today is all about getting your NUTRITION in order for a successful FAT LOSS journey. But there are usually two phases to this, and it’s important to go in order.
In phase one of a fat loss journey, we focus on simply establishing healthy patterns of eating.
I’m going to make it real simple for you, because if you’re just starting your fat loss journey, it’s important to keep it simple.
Let me give you my own example: I like to make a smoothie for breakfast with almond milk, peanut butter, and some protein powder. High fat, high protein. BOOM.
And for lunch? That’s easy – SALAD. And, FYI, salad can be any crazy combination of vegetables and protein you like.
I know a guy who eats a bag of baby carrots and a can of clams for lunch. Disgusting? Yes. But does it get the job done? Also, yes.
(I don’t recommend the carrots and clams approach, but you get the idea.) A delicious Cobb salad goes down much easier, just saying.
For both breakfast and lunch, I keep my focus on high fiber, high fat, and high protein. Then I can relax and enjoy almost anything within reason for dinner, without looking like a total jackass by bringing a container of asparagus and tilapia to Grandma’s.
In phase two of a fat loss journey, we simply dial down on what really works for YOU.
Keep in mind, doing things out of order will do more harm than good. In today’s podcast, you’ll learn more about what happens in phase two of your fat loss journey, after you’ve established healthy patterns of eating. You’ll learn
- When to consider using tools like keto-based diets
- When it’s the right time to start counting macronutrients
- Why order is important in moving from phase one to phase two
