Daily tip #30| Nutrition102

On my previous post I gave you a very simple solution to start getting on track and shed some weight off easily, the substitute method.


Let's say you followed the method for a few weeks, and the weight slowed, so you want to continue on forward.


The the next appropriate step would be to start following an eating schedule. A basic eating schedule consists of three balanced meals per day. It will not go to harsh on your body, meaning it's completely safe for anyone. I'm saying this because cutting down on many calories at once can be bad for your body, it becomes a health risk. It is not to be taken lightly. You should aim for about 20% calorie reduction from where you are now-- But don't count calories yet, counting calories is not a pleasureful activity, and if you're just looking to shed off some weight, you don't have to!


This is very simple nutrition. What you should start doing is eating three regularly scheduled(spaced out throughout the day) meals. Each one of them should be home made and, atleast relatively healthy. You can really go far with this, you will be able to gain muscle and shed weight at the same time. Ofcourse, way slower than 6 meals per day, but this is only the beginning, I'm guessing if you start up hardcore now - you'll get demotivated pretty soon after the results slow down. You lose weights on certain periods of time, more on that later on.


Don't have any idea of what is considered healthy and could be homemade? Oatmeal with two eggs and a glass of milk or yogurt - that would be breakfast. A tuna sandwich with an apple or two - that's lunch. Dinner? Have meat and potatoes with a salad. Do not go hard on salt or sos, they are unneccessary.


Remember, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Your body is in a great need for energy, as you haven't eaten for eight hours! Assuming, you slept for atleast 8 hours, which you should be doing.


Do not forget to drink a lot of water, not underestimate sleeping properly, stop making common mistakes and you'll be much happier!

Sleeping isn't really a problem for me - it's the waking up part that causes trouble :)

I've pretty much been doing this for a few weeks now, that extra meal a day has been making most of the difference.

I stick to 4 meals a day, (plus a cereal bar or something like that if i wake up too early.)
I can't really manage to sleep 8 hours though, it's simply impossible to me.

This would be a lot easier if healthy food were a lot yummier. Sleeping is one of my problems too I'm afraid. Work, exercise, hobbies, blogging, TV, there's just too much things to do with so little time. I better learn to manage my time first.
