We always love looking for stylish gym outfit ideas. Here is a look I would love to own. Love the touch of tribal prints and salmon color.
Everyone has his or her own food philosophy. It how you choose to eat the way you do and the decision you make on what goes into your body. It’s been heard over and over again that losing weight is 80% of what you eat and 20% exercise. Yet most people think they can eat anything they want and still see results.
In the past we thought counting calories and doing tons of cardio would get us the results we wanted and surprise surprise it never happened! After many failed attempt we finally buckled down and started learning about proper nutrition. And finally we saw the weight loss we wanted and more importantly was keeping it off. We still have a hard time eating “clean”, but we never give up. We wake up everyday to a fresh start.
Now this is our food philosophy.
Our protein choices are lean meats, eggs, and fish. We have one scoop of a protein powder a day, as a quick meal replacement.
We eat limited amount of diary products, like Greek yogurt, cheeses, etc.
Our veggies consist of 30-50% of our meals.
We prefer our carbohydrates to be slow digesting and high fiber, such as oats, yams, sweet potato, brown rice, gluten free whole grains, beans and low fructose fruits (berries, apples, pears).
We consume our high fructose carbohydrates around lifting times and limited to 20% of total carbohydrates.
We eat a mix of good fats such as saturated fats (animal product, dark chocolate and coconuts), monounsaturated fats (nuts, avocado and olives) and polyunsaturated fats (omega-3 seafood, hemp, chai and flax seed).
Although we avoid highly processed food and refined sugar, we do allow a few treats that are minimally processed. Our treats should have only ingredients that we understand and are sweetened with natural sugars.
