In the land of “named diets,” it seems that everyone is omitting entire food groups to lose weight. I’ve coached women to eating for energy for years. Which makes it seem that I am always answering the question about what to eat to lose weight.
The answer that I usually start with is that most people eat too many nutrient deficient calories. Focusing on what NOT to eat isn’t the answer.
When you shift your mindset to what foods you can eat to energize, build and support a healthy body…then you will lose the excess pounds.
You’ve gained excess pounds due to 2 key reasons.
- Too many useless calories that get stored as fat.
- Not enough activity that builds lean muscle tissue due to sedentary lives.
A better way to think about eating is to stop looking at foods as things that are either “allowed” or “not allowed.”
When you eat foods that nourish your brain, body and systems, you’ll feel, move and look better. This can be done without naming a specific diet.
Think of eating food that are pretty colors!
What about a plate full of greens, reds, oranges, yellows, and beautiful colors that look tasty and fresh.
Sure you can add a piece of meat, fish or poultry. But keep that the smaller part of the equation and make the rest of the plate a lot of fresh produce that is loaded with fiber and nourishment.
Want to lose weight and flatten your belly? Add in more fiber.
Fiber is one of the most commonly missing links when it comes to weight loss.
Women should consume about 25 grams of fiber daily, and men need about 35 grams. This can come from eating more plants, nuts, seeds, and produce.
Some great options are chia and flax seeds, avocados, asparagus, berries and nuts. These are simple foods that you can add to your plate and snack on daily.
Instead of thinking of what foods to eat for weight loss and what you’re allowed? Think of what will energize your body and fuel it that tastes great!
After years of coaching women and many years on my own struggling with diets in the past. I know that the proven way to lose weight and keep it off is with real foods for a body that takes you through life with vitality!
