We all know the importance of healthy eating, but from what I hear from you, it’s the most challenging part. I agree! It seems like the 1 hour spent in the gym is the “easy” part and the real challenge is the other 23 hours of the day.
I thought I would show you what I eat on a given day:

(1) Don’t diet! When I use the word “diet,” I am referring to the food one consumes; dieting in the sense of restricting calories, carbs, or food in general is not a good or healthy long term approach. It often leads to the yo-yo effect: weight loss followed by weight gain
(2) Strive to prepare the majority of your food yourself! In this video, you’ll see me mention how I aim to cook most of my meals as opposed to opening a box, can, or carton. I suggest this because doing so helped me personally see results. I was a lover of lean cuisines and all meals like that, but when I cut the processed foods, chemical, preservatives, and all the other junk out, I noticed that I looked and felt better!
(3) Balance! Balance! Balance! It’s easy to go too hard too fast; you get excited about losing weight and eating healthy, so you can unknowingly deprive yourself of everything you love to be “healthy.” I’ve found that those who lose weight and keep it off are individuals who take the “slow and steady wins the race” approach! Every now and then, enjoy a meal you love and take off from the gym when you’re feeling tired! After all, health is a lifestyle not a short term fix!
