On the Road To A Healthy Family Lifestyle…
It is very important when exercising and trying to lose weight that you follow a Meal Plan and eat 6 small meals per day. The trick is figuring out what those healthy foods are and how much of them to eat. By following a Meal Plan and eating those 6 small meals per day, you are keeping your blood sugar levels steady. But it also helps your body maintain its muscle mass and fuels your body for your daily activities.
If you plan to exercise in the morning, you should eat breakfast between one to two hours before beginning your workout and within 1 hour of rising! And more importantly ALWAYS EAT BREAKFAST! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It starts your metabolism and gets your body ready for the activities you have to do during the day. If you are not losing weight it could be because you are not eating a healthy breakfast with complex carbs and protein. If you’re not able to get up early enough to eat at least an hour before exercising, try eating a light source of carbohydrates like a piece of fruit. If your goal is weight loss, not high-level athletic performance, you may have better success eating breakfast after you exercise in the morning.
Also, make sure you always pair complex carbs and protein at every meal. A nutrient-rich food plan features roughly 40% carbohydrates, 30% protein, and 30% fat, a balance not only for weight loss, but for giving you and your family the energy it needs to get the most out your day and/or workouts. It’s not a diet, it’s a Healthy Family Lifestyle!
