Starting off on the right foot by cleaning up your diet is the best way to hit the road running. And the most important dietary tip that will kick start your body’s ability to burn off fat is to eliminate all refined carbohydrates and replace them with vegetables and fruits (unrefined carbs).
Here’s the thing…all carbs turn into sugar and sugar makes you FAT. It’s as simple as that. So by reducing the amount of sugar you consume, you’ll immediately start losing weight.
Here’s a quick list of foods to avoid and foods that I recommend. For a more complete list of foods, Read my next post.
Examples of refined carbohydrate foods that you should AVOID:
– white rice
– baked goods (muffins, scones, donuts)
– sweets (soda, juice, candy)
Examples of some veggies that I recommend (cruciferous veggies are my vegetables of choice, since they have the highest amount of anti-oxidants, nutrient and fiber content):
– brussel spouts
– Swiss chard
Examples of fruits I recommend (berries are my favorite since it’s low in sugar, but has the highest amount of anti-oxidants and nutrient content):
Try to stay AWAY from fruits that are too high in sugar (I know they taste good, but try and stay away from these since they’re really high in sugar and low in fiber content):
Stay Lean and Healthy,
