Tomorrow, I will be posting the “official” @HealthHabits Diet…one of the most effective fat-burning, muscle building, health improving diets I have ever designed.
But, before I do that, I thought I would show everybody the 3 central rules that I used to create the @HealthHabits Diet.
- It’s Not Only What You Eat
- It’s When You Eat It
- And How Much Of It That You Eat
Let’s take a closer look.
What You Eat
There are a lot of diets that restrict the types of food you can and can’t eat:
- Low-Fat Diets
- Low-Carb Diets
- Vegetarian/Vegan Diets
- High Fiber Diets
- Liquid Diets
- Organic Food Diets
- Whole Grain Diets
- and the list goes on and on and on…
The fact is, certain foods improve your health and certain foods don’t.
- Certain foods are high in nutrients and low in calories
- Other foods are high in calories and low in nutrients
- Certain foods make you hungry
- Certain foods cause inflammation (that’s bad)
- Certain foods make you fat
Based upon the most recent research, I have put together my list of the foods that improve your health and the ones that wreck your health.
When You Eat It
What makes more sense:
- Drinking all of your daily fluid intake at one sitting (think Big Gulp)?
- Or spreading it out over the course of the day?
- Skipping breakfast and lunch and then eating a huge dinner?
- Spacing your food intake out evenly over the whole day?
- Eating all of your carbs for breakfast, fats for lunch and proteins for dinner?
- Eating meals balanced in macro-nutrients (carb, fat, pro)?
It’s not just the types of food you eat that’s important, it’s when you eat those foods.
And tomorrow, I will tell the Facebook Group about two incredibly powerful meal timing techniques.
How Much You Eat
This one is a no-brainer.
10,000 calories of the healthiest health food per day is still going to make you fat.
It’s just too bad that most dieters see calories as the end-all and be-all of successful weight loss. If the weight isn’t coming off fast enough, they just drop the calories a little more. And then a little more. And then just a little bit more.
Until 1 of 2 things happens:
- They achieve their weight loss goal and then have to maintain their skinny-fat physiques on 1000 calories per day for the rest of their miserable calorie deprived lives, or
- Their body revolts and forces them (via hormones, brain chemicals, etc) to eat and eat and eat.
Neither scenario works.
That’s why focusing solely on calories is the worst thing you can do if you’re trying to lose weight.
