I’m very much of the food-first philosophy. Get your nutrition through food first, and then look to fill in the gaps with supplements after this.
I don’t know what I would do without sheet pan meals in my life.
I have exciting news – I will be starting a new series on my blog!
I’ve been pretty successful at breaking some of my not-so-great habits in the past. For example, I’ve successfully stopped drinking Diet Coke and have dramatically reduced the time I spend in the sun.
With my weight loss clients, one of the biggest things I discourage is missing a significant amount of protein at breakfast. Why?
Packing in the protein at the beginning of the day helps regulate our hunger hormones throughout the day, so we don’t feel like bingeing on all the food once we get home at the end of the day. We also need to remember there is an upper limit for how much protein our bodies can use at one time, therefore it is helpful to spread our protein throughout the day.
It’s no surprise that we over-consume and over-treat ourselves at summer BBQ gatherings. I discuss this more in Part 1 of this series – if you missed it click here.
