Eat Real Food

Want to know how and what to eat? To improve your health and increase your fitness we recommend following these 3 rules

1. Eat Real Food - It once was alive and doesn't come from a package. If it has a long shelf life it should be avoided. Your food should be a close to its original form as possible, locally grown organic being the best.

2. Not Too Much - 3 meals balanced meals a day will be enough to support your activity levels but not fat. No snacking, no seconds serves, no late night treats before bed. No soft drinks, no added sugar. Post workout meals or shakes should be avoided if your carrying excess body fat.

3. Mostly Plants - Your plate should be half full of vegetables, a quarter full of carbohydrates and a quarter full of protein. Include a thumb-sized portion of healthy fats like avocado or olive oil with each meal. Fruit is considered a carbohydrate.

Aim for progressively getting closer to achieving this and you will burn fat, have more energy, more focus, sleep better, recover from workouts quicker and you'll be the best version of you!!

You don't have to count calories to lose weight

If your goal like most peoples is to look good naked, get through busy work days with energy and to be active with your kids you don't need to worry about count calories. The thought of obsessing over and tracking every last thing you put in your mouth is a daunting thought and more then likely a huge obstacle that's stopping you from changing to a better diet.

Counting calories can be hard, time consuming and wildly inaccurate luckily there is a simpler way to get the results you want. Stick to eating whole unprocessed foods like meats, vegetables, leafy greens, potatoes, beans, fruits, nuts and consume them in the quantities outlined in this Precision Nutrition article http://www.precisionnutrition.com/calorie-control-guide

For women we recommend 1 cupped-hand sized portion of carbohydrates with most meals.
