Well, let’s just say I try to eat healthy the majority of the time.
I don’t see anything wrong with eating the odd cookie, ice-cream or bar of chocolate after working your butt off in the gym all week.
It beats eating pizza, burgers, and takeaways, any day!
I could eat a load of bars and biscuits in one day without worrying how many calories I ate and still stay in great shape.
But there is a price I have to pay for every bar or biscuit, I eat…
The obvious answer is; I have to train a little harder to burn extra calories in one session.
Most people don’t do that. They eat whatever they want and instead of exercising, they decide to go on a diet for a few days or a few weeks.
Going on a diet can help you lose weight, but what happens when you come off the diet? You start eating more crap. Then your back to square one again.
Follow These Basic Steps To Lose Weight
- Having the will power and determination to eat healthy the majority of your time
- Exercise Regularly
- Cut out processed Foods and Simple Carbs that’s causing weight gain and preventing weight loss.
- Stop Counting Calories
I never count my calories; I never had to. Counting calories is too much effort. I don’t have time for it.
All I know is I have time to eat clean, lift weights and do high intense cardio once or twice a week.
Once I got that out of the way, I can eat whatever I want.
I try to use common sense to eat clean carbs as often as possible. But if I had to guess my calorie intake it would probably be between 2,500-3000 per day. That’s just a wild guess though.
I don’t keep track of the number of calories I consume each day, unless I plan on competing in a bodybuilding competition; and then I’d have to be more careful what to eat. I do enough training each week and eat enough healthy carbs and protein, so I’m constantly burning off calories, even when I sleep at night.
Right now, my body fat is around 12% but would be great to get down to around 7% body fat. I’ve been there before, and I can do it again.
All it takes is high intense cardio, eating clean (at least 95% of the time) and lifting weights four days a week with once or twice a week, with one day off.
When you set yourself a goal like this, you will do whatever it takes to achieve it, no excuses!
Yes, it takes dedication and commitment. Unless you’re serious about getting your body in shape, it’s never going to happen. So don’t procrastinate, and you’ll do fine.
For me, it’s much easier to maintain lean muscle and keep the weight off as long as I workout 4-5 days a week and eat healthy.
I’ve already gained about a pound of muscle from just one week of working out, which is great.
When you get results like this in a short amount of time, it’s easier to stay motivated and work harder to achieve better results.
I try to keep clear of eating simple sugars and processed food during the week.
I never count my calorie intake; I just control portion sizes and eat small meals 4-5 times a day instead of eating 2-3 large meals.
I find by eating frequent “SMALL MEALS” throughout the day I feel less hungry and reduces my hunger and desire to eat junk food.
I never count my calories but eat clean 95% of the time
I don’t keep track of calorie consumption but limit the amount of sugar in my diet. I love a sweet cup of tea or coffee but avoid putting sugar in it.
Instead, I use sweeteners because each tablet has just one calorie compared to a spoon full of sugar, which is about 16 calories.
For most people, its hard to stay away from simple carbs like, potatoes, white flour, cereals, donuts,cakes, muffins, ice-cream and even cookies.
For most people, its really hard to stay away from simple carbs like, potatoes, white flour, cereals, donuts, cakes, muffins, ice-cream and even cookies.
If you have been so use to eating these kind of foods most of your life it’s harder to stay away from them completely.
But can limit the amount of bad carbs you eat, once if possible.
By making it a habit to eat clean carbs, it should be easier to burn body fat, but you have to be consistent with it.
It took me a while to cut out bad carbs from my diet but the more you train yourself to eat carbs that are good for you the easier it gets.
I always try to eat a protein source with veg, brown rice or whole grain bread with every meal.
So the best advice I want to leave with you is to cut out fatty simple carbs and replace the with clean carbs and try to eat 5-6 smaller meals a day instead of 2-3 larger meals. This is the best way to lose weight in my opinion.
If you think it’s too much effort to cook 4-5 meals a day, there’s a much easier way….
Prepare Your Meals The Night Before Or First Thing In The Morning
All that’s left then is the meat, which is easy to cook and you don’t have to worry about cooking carbs and veg because you already have it prepared.
You might not like the idea of cooking all your meals in one go and you might be the type of person who loves to be more creative with their food and be into the whole recipe thing.
I’m the complete opposite. I’m happy enough to throw on a load of boiled eggs and leave them in a container in the fridge for 2-3 days and do the same with my chicken fillets, rice and veg.
Preparing your meals for the day ahead is a great way to save time and money. Knowing that you already have your meals cooked and prepared will prevent you from eating out or ordering a takeaway.
It saves me a lot of time, and it will save you time as well if you give it a try.
So I hope you learned something here and if you want to lose weight, burn fat or even get six pack, stop counting our calories and start eating right and workout regularly.
Stay away from processed foods, drink plenty of water and eat 4-5 small meals throughout the day instead of 2-3 large meals. If you keep this up you will get great results.
I have gone through trial and error and hadn’t a clue what foods to eat to lose weight.
Most people know what foods are good for you and what foods are bad for you, but they still crave the bad foods because they are addicted to sugar.
