It’s week 8 and I am finding new things to eat that’s not only healthy but actually delicious. Salmon, skinless chicken, kale with chicken sausage, flavored Protein drinks and yummy snacks from the snack bar at Las Vegas Athletic Club. I found out that my body was craving taste more than anything. so instead of eating processed foods I now make an effort to eat whole foods with protein and nutrients that is actually better for my body. Better choices equals better results. instead of fried fish, I found that baked salmon is not only better, but it actually taste better.
You wouldn’t put diesel fuel in your car if it takes unleaded would you? then why do we put the wrong fuel in our body? Your body is a machine and it only puts out based upon what you put in. I put down sodas and replaced them with water, or healthy alternatives. Don’t get me wrong, I still like treats, and I didn’t want to shock my body with a drastic change, so I suggest you do everything in moderation.
For example, I love rice and potatoes, so I use cauliflower rice instead and I limit how much potatoes I eat. One baked potato a week is a great start. I am not a nutritionist but I can only tell you what works for me. Cardio is always a good thing to help burn some of those unwanted calories and can help you get a caloric deficit which can help you lose weight.
I was a little discouraged at first because I wasn’t seeing results as fast as I expected, But again, you get out what you put in. So as much as I Love cakes and cookies, I had to reduce the amount of junk in order to get better results. I am a long way from where I want to be, but every healthy step I take is getting me closer to my goal which is a healthier lifestyle.
