5/23/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Sunday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 24. May 2013 05:33


There are so many books, protein shakes, pre-made meals, and diet pills that will “help you loose weight quickly”. Let’s talk frankly; there is one way to safely loose weight.  Intake less calories through food consumption (not alcohol) than you burn through physical activity.  PERIOD.

Carbs vs carbs. Low fat vs. high fat.  The way you eat is very controversial according to the ‘experts’. (I know I sound syndical.  I just really dislike that my workout magazines are 95% filled with diet pills advertising.  Quick fix solution claims).

I believe in clean eating which includes eating a variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, low fat dairy, and some healthy fats.

An additional important part of success for weight loss will be achieved through portion control.  Ask your fish monger to cut your portions into 4- 5 oz. pieces.  Weight your meats with a food scale.  Let your vegetables to cover ½ of your lunch and dinner plate.  Be sure and drink enough water throughout your day.

Keep exercising and eating whole fresh foods and you will see positive results!
