Diet. Why is it that this negative word comes out of every woman’s mouth at some point in their lifetime? Not only at some point, but repeatedly. From the time we are in our pre-teens, messages come into our lives that our bodies are not good enough”. This sets us up for a lifetime of making nutrition mistakes. With a thyroid disorder and a history of trying to “get skinny,” I know what it feels like to feel out of control with food. 3 Tips to Fix your Broken Diet will get you on the right path, so that you eat for energy, and love the body you live in.
If you have tried to lose weight, tried to skip meals, and tried to fix your metabolism, most likely you are still following methods that are either outdated, or simply will not work. I see it every day. Women getting flabbier, while eating less. More miserable as they age as the pounds keep on creeping up. Blaming it on hormones and age.
First, let’s get rid of the words weight loss, diet and skinny. All should be abolished from women’s vocabularies and replaced with fat loss, nutrition plan, and strong and lean. Those are happy, empowering, lifelong words that will take you into a healthy future. You have to change your mindset and your script, before you can change your body.
Weight loss makes you a slave to the scale. Skinny is weak. “Diet” to me, means to obsess about what you cannot have. None of those make you focus on healthy living.
Here are 3 Tips to Fix Your Broken Diet so that you can start a path of a leaner body, today.
- Never skip protein.
Grass fed beef and chicken, and pasture raised eggs are a great source of lean protein. Protein keeps you full and prevents muscle wasting. Get at least 1 gram of protein per lean pound of bodyweight daily.
2. Aim for 30-35 grams of fiber daily.
Fiber keeps you full and helps to shuttle out waste that keeps you bloated, This is a common missing link in dieters that eat processed diet foods and low calorie plans.
Elimination is just as important as what we absorb. These foods should be eaten daily for the best fat loss and healthy diet results. They will keep you full, prevent binging, and if you eat a couple of servings daily, could help the pounds seem to fall right off!
Avocados. Spinach. Artichokes. Asparagus. Leafy Greens. Oats. Chia and Flax Seeds. These fiber rich foods are a must in any fat loss, strong and healthy body plan.
For a done for you plan that gives you a grocery list and short follow along workouts that will help you get rid of that excess weight (especially if you are battling hormone related weight gain….CLICK HERE!)
3. Drink at least 8 glasses of purified water daily.
I know. You hear this one daily. However, are you aware that nearly every person over 50 is in a state of dehydration. That means headaches, weakness, brain fog and lethargy. Not to mention a body that keeps in toxins and stays bloated. Keep track. Drink up. Add lemon for more benefits.
