You Gotta Eat!
One of the first things we do when we want to lose weight is…
Cut back what we’re eating.
Well, this could be good and bad.
Most of us aren’t eating enough calories to sustain daily functions. Eating once, twice and even three times a day isn’t going to cut it if you want to lose fat, increase energy and look tight and toned.
Adding a workout program to the mix, especially one that relies heavily on cardio to lose the weight, will certainly put us into a calorie deprivation mode, if we weren’t in one already.
The main thing is you have to eat and eat well if you want to lose weight and see results that last.
For those of you who work out early in the morning, eating a light meal before your workout will prove beneficial, not only in terms of weight loss, but with energy during the workout as well.
If you’re one of those individuals who isn’t eating a lot of food and doesn’t have a “rule of 3” dinner the night before, you can find yourself bonked before the end of your early morning workout the next day.
It’s not so much about how much you eat, it’s really about what you’re eating and in what combinations.
If you want results, which is kind of the reason for working out in the first place, why not do it right?
You see results faster.
You’ll have more energy.
You’ll feel better.
Your overall well being will improve and you’ll have the energy you need to sustain your workouts, causing you to stick to the program and accomplish everything you could imagine and more!
In short, EAT!
Start Strong, Finish Stronger!
