Fitness Focus ~ Rules You Need to Break!!

Don’t eat after 7 p.m. 

↑  Break  THAT and do THIS  –> Don’t mindlessly snack in the evening.

Your total caloric intake for the day is what matters—not the time at which you eat your calories.  Eat mindfully to satisfy real hunger.

Always choose fat-free foods.

↑  Break THAT and do THIS  –> Include a moderate amount of heart-healthy fats in your weight loss plan.

Most of the fat-free foods you can buy are things you shouldn’t be eating anyway:  empty-calorie junk food and heavily processed sweets, crackers and cookies.  Instead, add fats such as nuts, avocado, or olive oil to your diet.

Eat low-carb to lose weight.

↑  Break THAT and do THIS  –>Cut back on processed carbs and choose whole foods instead.

Rather than removing carbs completely from your diet plan, be more selective.  Choose more whole grains and unprocessed foods like brown rice, quinoa, whole-grain bread, and oats.

    These are all good tips! The concept of excluding one group of food entirely is silly. The trick is to eat a more balanced diet, with moderate amounts of the “bad” stuff. This is sooo true: “Most of the fat-free foods you can buy are things you shouldn’t be eating anyway”
