Workouts Vs Fridge

What many people fail to realize as they start down the road to a slim flat stomach and solid abdominals is a diet of healthy foods is key to shedding excess belly fat. Moreover, there are supplements that can be used as well. Although, supplements do have side effects making it important for you to know all about java burn side effects before you start using one. Think about it. You’ve worked out every day for weeks and months, but you and everyone else haven’t noticed. You start to reflect on your struggles and realize that every morning you’re grabbing s icy-cold Frappuccino from Starbucks and getting fast food for lunch. Eureka (light bulb above head)! 

NO WONDER I’M NOT LOSING WEIGHT

You can work out all day every day and not see the results you want if you don’t change your diet. So what’s the solution to making the most of your workouts? Makeover your kitchen and use a supplement. Start by grabbing a trash bag and throwing out all the junk food you have packed away in there. Seriously, if you want any chances of modeling that new sexy bikini (ladies) or showing off a chiseled mid-section (guys); toss it all out. You cannot keep bad food in the house.

Start by restocking the kitchen with good wholesome foods (see 80/20 rule). 80% good food and 20% treats (limits those).

You’ll definitely want your fridge and pantry to look similar to this list.

MEAT, POULTRY, AND FISH

  • Trash

Beef fully of fatty marbling, bacon, pulled pork, and any fried fish and chicken. Don’t fill it with Gordon fish sticks either.

  • Stock

Lean ground turkey, skinless chicken, and salmon or shellfish. The healthiest animal proteins are contained in these items. Avoid certain types of fish that contain high levels of contaminants like, dioxins and mercury.

DAIRY

  • Dump

Full-fat cheeses, yogurt, butter, margarine, and whole milk.

  • Stock

Fat-free milk or soy milk, reduced-fat yogurt, and cheeses with fat-free milk. Reduced-fat yogurt, reduced-fat cottage cheese. Eggs (go with egg whites only); the good news on eggs is that you can have the yoke from time to time since they only have a few more calories. The difference is how you cook the eggs; just a little butter or lite cooking spray. The danger is the hash browns and bacon are usually served with them.

VEGGIES AND FRUITS (KEY ITEMS)

  • Trash

Never fry vegetables or cover in creamy cheeses sauces. A lot of people think, if it’s a vegetable it’s good. Wrong… the vegetable itself is great, but once the other stuff is added the calories add up. Cook them so they look like they just came out of the ground.

  • Stock

ANY fresh and frozen vegetable or fruit you want. Vegetables and fruits contain many of the minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants your body needs on a daily basis. They should always be an important part of your daily food intake. You can even cut them up for middle-of-the-day snacks.

PASTA, CEREALS, AND BREAD

  • Trash

Anything made with white flour and especially sugar-coated cereals.

  • Stock

Anything whole grain, bread pasta, brown rice, bran flakes, shredded wheat. Seeing as breakfast is the most important meal of the day make sure to include a 100% whole grain cereal it it. Because of the fiber in whole grain, it’s one of the best weight loss foods around. NOTE: don’t have three and five servings. Have one serving and add fresh berries or other fruit.

SNACKS

  • Trash

Ice-cream, pretzels, cookies, cakes, pastries, candy, chips, etc, etc (list is longer than I care to write). You’ll notice that many of the products come packaged as fat-free; don’t be fooled. That still doesn’t make them good for you. Fat is what usually makes most things taste the way they do and if the fat is missing something is making up for the taste; SUGAR = EVIL. “A better idea for a cold treat is to freeze strawberries, sliced bananas, blueberries, peaches, and grapes (or buy already-frozen fruit). You can eat them as they are, or toss them in the blender with low-fat yogurt, soy milk, or even almond milk to make real fruit shakes.”

  • Stock

Mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, dried fruits, almonds, and walnuts are a good snack alternative. Even dark chocolate is not bad (70% cacao) but only in moderation. The key to healthy snakes is that prevent food cravings and overeating. Snack frequently and try to stick to the same portion and snack to build a routine. Your body will reward you with shedding body fat.

DRINKS

  • Trash

Soda, Soda and Soda, fruit drinks not 100% juice, and diet drinks. They all contain sugar and sugar ends up being stored in the body as fat. The exact thing you’re trying to get rid of so way add more. Oh… did I say Soda?

  • Stock

Sparkling water, cranberry, grapefruit, tomato, and orange juices. Tea and coffee on their own contain almost no calories, it’s the additives that make them bad. Try syrup and honey as alternative natural sweeteners.
