Enix Lifestyle Nutrition Principals & Research
The Enix Lifestyle Weight Loss Meal Plans are easy to implement and focus on keeping you full for hours.
Because there is so much more to life than worrying about extensive meal prep and being distracted from hunger pains, am I right...
Our meal plans are overall lower in carbohydrates (carbs) than the typical American diet, but are not as restrictive as the popular Ketogenic diet (“Keto”). If a diet is too restrictive, it can often end up backfiring, which is something we don’t want! Our plans here, while still lower in carbs, are much more doable for the real world!
Our plans focus on filling proteins & fats and lots of non-starchy vegetables for volume, with the majority of the meals and snacks taking less than 10 minutes to prepare. It will give you the confidence to make these changes as part of your new Enix Lifestyle.
Social support is also incredibly helpful for many on their weight loss journeys.
Overall our research has found the following:
EATING FEWER CARBS CAN:
- reduce appetite (helping weight loss be effortless!)
- aid in more weight loss, 2 to 3 times as much in fact, compared to low-fat diets
- lower blood sugar, blood pressure and triglycerides, and raise HDL (the good kind) and improve the pattern of LDL (the bad kind) cholesterol
- It’s also helpful to track your progress! Whether it’s your weight, measurements, body fat, how your clothes t, or just how you’re feeling, having an objective measure of success helps you see how far you’ve come.
