Dieting for weight loss
This is what I have for lunch; 6 Oz chicken breast, 1 cup and a quarter of mix vegetables, about 2 tablespoons of sour cream and a tortilla!
My diet, my lunch, not yours, unless you like food like these!!
Dieting is simple, eat portion-sized food that you like and enjoy, and lose weight. People think you have to eat like a bodybuilder to lose weight. Unless your goal is to get on stage and be 3-5% body fat, yes you will have a very strict diet, but if not then you have to follow a personalized diet based on your likes and nutritional needs.
You can have food like my lunch and lose body fat, gain lean mass and have energy for the day without feeling sluggish!!!
Dieting for Joint Inflammation
If you have joint issues, try adding some fatty oils to your diet. Be careful not to add too much fat into your diet. You should swap out unhealthy oils for oils that come from fish like salmon or sardines.
For those of you that have more of a sweet tooth, reach out for fruits! There are several fruits that can help reduce inflammation and can handle your sweet tooth. You can try grapes or berries.
Adding some brocoli and spinach to your meals are going to help you too. Remember that just adding these foods won't do the trick. You also have remove food from your diet that are causing inflammation. Deiting isn't about cutting out everything you like to eat, it's about balancing your meals.
Also, remember to be mindful of your portions. Even too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Try not to think of this as dieting but as using food to help your body and mind feel better.
If you want to eat like this, and get amazing results, let me help you!
