Over the past several weeks I have committed to making these changes till the end of the year:
- no eats after 8 p.m.
- drink 64 ounces of water each day
- take my supplements
- uplift at least one woman each day
- be extra nice to a difficult woman each day
- have enough pre-workout fuel
I know that I feel better and perform at my best, and sleep well, too, when I eat properly. For me, that means eating whole, real food… the things that we Weight Watchers call Power Foods. They are nutrient-dense, and filling and satisfying. Fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, healthy oils, fat free dairy products… (and they advise whole grains if you do eat grains, which I don’t). I am going to be concentrating on eating Power Foods and limiting sugar and alcohol to a much greater degree than I have been recently.
And I am taking it one step further, by following Tom Venuto’s suggestion in his new book (yet to be released) called Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle, to consume a daily combination of 20% fat, 35% protein and 45% carbs. This is in order to compliment my workouts with a more strict adherence to my nutrition. He also suggests eating real, whole foods, and I am so happy that his advice backs up the advice that Weight Watchers offers.
I am sure I will be seeing even better results!
Do you follow a particular food plan or are you more of an intuitive eater?
Do you count macros or track your food intake?
