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.
Planning is SO key - I know this for myself, and I hear this from our lifestylists.
Even though planning is key - it does NOT have to be stressful! I know it can seem like this big, daunting task. But as I’ll show you here, it 100% does not have to be.
I typically recommend planning 2 sets of meals: one for Monday through Wednesday, and one for Thursday and Friday. This way, you won’t get too sick of what you’re eating throughout the week. For example, you could plan:
BREAKFAST Mondays - Wednesdays: 2 hard boiled eggs + 1 apple + 1 string cheese
BREAKFAST Thursdays - Fridays: 1 to-go oatmeal cup + 1/4 cup nuts
LUNCH Mondays - Wednesdays: 1 can tuna + 1 Tbsp mayo + 2 cups celery +
LUNCH Thursdays - Fridays: 2 hard boiled eggs + 2 cups baby carrots + 2 single-serving packets of guacamole
