You should continually experiment to discover what works best for YOU is what I tell my clients .
Not just your workout routine, but your meals as well.
Implementing a nutrition plan that’s right for you should be a process of trial and error – an ongoing experiment with portion sizes, food combinations, and eating at different times of the day.
When I have clients that are starting out, for the first week or two, I think it’s helpful to determine how many calories, fat, protein and carbs you should have for your goals, weight, age, gender, and activity level I tell them.
It’s also a good idea to look up the nutritional content of your favorite foods to see their amount of fat, protein and carb per serving size, as both a learning experience and so you can become a more health-conscious eater.
But in the long-run, I wouldn’t I say to my clients that don’t get t too obsessed with counting and measuring everything. It really doesn’t need to be this tedious or time-consuming.
The main thing is that you A.) combine the right types of carbs with a lean protein and healthy fat …
…and B.) that you eat only until pleasantly full and satisfied, not stuffed. That is, you listen closely to your body.
The problem I see is that Many diet plans tell you exactly what to eat, how much to eat, and when to eat it. This does not teach you how to attend to your own cravings, desires, or hunger I cover this and more in my ebook
Everyone that undergoes a nutritional program has different strengths, weaknesses, and eating patterns. You will only become successful when you learn to respond to your own feelings and not to what someone else says is right for you.
It is critical that you learn how to be aware of and attend to both feelings of hunger and fullness, and learn what will satisfy you both physically and psychologically.
Your own body, not someone else’s estimated guess, is the very best guide for how much you need to eat.
So, try to get in the habit of tuning in to your internal cues of hunger, and not just eating the amount of food you think you should to be “good.”
It’s okay to eat any amount of food to feel both physically and psychologically satisfied. But you must learn to stop when you feel comfortably full, not stuffed.
In addition to learning how it feels to be hungry, full, and uncomfortably full, you must learn from your mistakes.
If you eat past comfortable fullness, don’t beat yourself up about it. There are bound to be times when you eat too much for your body’s comfort. That’s normal.
Just try to remember how eating too much feels, and remind yourself of this feeling the next time you are tempted to overeat.
With practice, you will change your eating patterns and start eating when your body tells you you’re hungry … and stop eating once you begin to feel comfortably full and satisfied.
Someone in total control who’s listening closely to his/her body, knows that it’s alright to leave a few bites on your plate, because they’ve determined they’ve had enough.
It’s really empowering once you’ve learned this skill, and I think you’ll be amazed at the results that will soon follow.I hope to think im living proof of this as the pictures above show
I hope you found this helpful in health Fred
