When it comes to clean eating and the quality of your food it’s really important. Here are my tips that I have learned the hard way when my progress stalled.
Fruits- bananas, grapes and mangoes are the highest sugar fruits so I would recommend that you limit them to once per day. I would suggest pears, apples, and any berries. A serving is 1 cupped handful.
Veggies- raw or steamed. 2 cupped handfuls eaten 4 times per day. Examples, cucumbers, tomatoes, leafy greens, broccoli, spinach, asparagus, green beans, sprouts, celery. Note: Carrots are actually high in natural sugar!
Carbs- 1 handful per day of quinoa, brown rice, oatmeal, or cream of wheat and or a hand sized sweet potato.
Lean protein- stick to chicken, tuna, egg whites, turkey, or non oily fish like salmon and tilapia. Other protein sources are shakeology, protein powder, nuts (but also a good fat).
Beverages- water!!! Unsweetened herbal teas!
So if you are really trying to shed weight stay away from dairy products, juice, bread, salad dressings (make ur own with balsamic vinegar and evoo), spreads and high sodium foods!
NO TURKEY BACON for my bacon lovers and no sliced cheese!
I promise if you even start making small tweaks with this plan you will see a drastic change!!!
