Let’s talk Weight Loss. Weight Loss is probably the most common goal we hear when talking to people about their goals.
Now there are many different ways to lose weight. Some are healthy, some not so healthy. We could get very scientific and throw in a lot of information on what works and what doesn’t but if you have been following us at all one of our main goals is to simplify health and fitness.
That is one if the main issues these days. Information overload. Some right, some completely wrong just to make a quick buck.
What we want to do is teach people to live a lifestyle that is not only simple but also sustainable.
-Drinking meal replacement supplements all day everyday is NOT sustainable
-Not eat any Carbs is NOT sustainable
-Not eating at all, is definitely NOT sustainable
Yes all these “quick fixes” might work at first but in the long run, they cause more harm than good.
So lets see how simple we can make weight loss:
No. 1 thing with weight loss is 100% going to be nutrition. We see this all the time. People bust their ass in the gym 5-7 days per week and still see 0 change and some actually continue to put weight on.
So where do we start?
1. Eat “Real Food”– This means eat things that don’t have a label on them. Meats, veggies, nuts, seeds, fruit, potatoes. All of those are real food and have not been tampered with (too much anyway)
All those foods in the aisles at the grocery store in packages and boxes, with labels and 100 different ingredients have been processed and are what is making 70% of the human population very sick.
2. Eat 3 square meals a day- We don’t need to be fasting all day long and we don’t need to be eating every 2 hours. Both of those just aren’t sustainable and eventually create other issues down the road.
3. Eat normal Portion sizes- The portions these days are absolutely crazy. Especially in America. The human body is very efficient at using calories for energy and doesn’t need ridiculous amounts of food to supply us with an abundance of energy.
That why we gain weight. The body can only use so much at one time. Everything else is stored as fat.
Try this. choose a 9inch plate and stick to these portions. Fill half your plate with veggies. A quarter with protein and a quarter with carbs.
4. Stop Drinking Calories- This is a huge contributor to weight gain and a lot of other chronic diseases. Yes we have to eat to stay alive. We DO NOT have to drink calories to stay alive. (Yes I know, we do need water to stay alive. So drink water)
Starbucks, addicting energy drinks (both sugar and no sugar), soda (biggie sized), fruit juice, high sugar coffee, tea and alcohol……all of these are absolutely killing a lot of people. If people would cut these out alone, the weight loss would be astonishing.
So to summarize weight loss:
It’s probably 80% nutrition if not more. Eat real food, 3 x per day. Keep portion sizes to a 9 inch plate (50% veggies, 25% protein, 25% carbs) and stop drinking your calories.
