Helpful food tips

7 posts in this topic

Hi all hoping for sum tips and any information. A work as a trolley boy at a supermarket and since doing it I have managed to drop nearly 4 stone being more active. What am hoping for is tips on food and snacking to help drop more. Still have the belly overlapping. Recently gave up red bull for past 4 days and switched to Pepsi max and coke zero. Any suggestions on food and snack wise to help drop more inches. Thanks

Healthy foods that I try and snack on... Carrots, Celery, Most fruits, Lean cooked meats, Protein shakes. Then I try and use tea and coffee without shugar to keep me full as they are an appetite suppressant along with diet soft drinks like you are doing! I have actually wrote a blog on this topic which you might find interesting! https://www.evolvemuscle.co.uk/single-post/Top-10-Low-Calorie-Snacks-for-Fat-Loss That should help you with your fat loss :)

 In planning any of your meals, you want to have a balance of carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats. A good general rule of thumb is 50% of calories of the meal coming from carbs, 25% from protein, and the other 25% coming from healthy fats. 

Side note: contrary to popular culture, neither carbs nor fats are evil, only the overindulgence of either can be detrimental to healthy weight management and/or weight loss. 

Breakfast will get your metabolism going and fuel your mind and body to tackle the day. It will also support healthier eating habits the rest of the day - you will be less inclined to grab high-fat, high-sugar foods to curb your hunger.

Here are the resources!: •

Refrigerator Oats - (my personal fave!) make the night before and eat in the morning! (http://bit.ly/2gjIcyp)

• Breakfast Egg Cups (http://bit.ly/2yzHFmh)

• Smoothies - (http://bit.ly/2gPx6BN)

• Raspberry/Blueberry Almond Muffins - pair with 2 eggs prepared however you like, hard-boiled included (http://bit.ly/2ziUwqg)

• Pumpkin Muffins - also pair with eggs or another protein to complete the meal (http://bit.ly/2xRRxZo)

• Banana Bread - pair with protein to complete the meal (http://bit.ly/2hOtyzz)

 • Slow-Cooked Chicken (http://bit.ly/2yxJ9va)

This list is NOT exhaustive. I hope that I have, however, given you a number of good ideas to start from. Stay in the realm of that macronutrient breakdown that I gave above - 50% carbs, 25% protein, and 25% healthy fats.

If you want even more ideas, check out this artlcle from Greatist  - 56 Cheap and Healthy Breakfast Recipes. (http://bit.ly/2l1dIXo) They've also got a great article on 33 Healthier Breakfast Alternatives. (http://bit.ly/2yr9rSm) The last one that I enjoyed looking through was 39 Healthy Breakfast Recipes for Busy Mornings! (http://bit.ly/2yxrSUz) Just remember to balance your meal!

Next week, I will be sharing meal prep tips to help you stay on track with your nutrition goals and eating habits. Stay tuned! :)

You have to eat more vegetables and fruit, olive oil instead of other unhealthy oils, nuts,etc. Check it out in Google. You tube have some really delicious recipes that can help you out. Before you know it you will drop the weight you desire
