Rawsome’s Top Tips
UNDERSTANDING YOUR BODY
When it comes to losing weight, we need to do it right. Fuelling your body with the right nutrients is crucial to your success. The goal is to gain muscle mass and less body fat. Stick to a diet of high-fiber carbohydrates, healthy fats, and lean proteins will help you shed some pounds. Remember that you are trying to lose weight not only to look better but to be healthier. A cheat day once a week is totally acceptable. You never want to go on a strict diet because it will backfire and will not show the results that you are looking for.
- Implement a diet that is sustainable.
- Educate yourself on what you can and can’t eat.
- Enjoy the process.
FOODS TO AVOID
Cut down on your sweets! The fastest way to reduce sugar intake is to REPLACE your sweet/ flavored drinks with water. In some cases, this is the only change you need to see a change in your body.
Consume fewer carbohydrates. By doing this, your hunger levels will go down and fewer calories will be consumed. Now instead of burning carbs or energy, your body starts feeding off of stored fat.
FOODS TO EAT
Try to incorporate high PROTEIN sources into your meals. When it comes to losing weight, protein is the king of nutrients. Period. Here are some high-protein foods.
- Meat: Beef, chicken, pork, lamb, turkey, etc.
- Fish & Seafood: Salmon, trout, shrimp, etc.
- Tofu & Other Soy Foods
Know your FATS. Ever since fat was given a bad name, people have been consuming more sugar, refined carbohydrates, and processed food instead. This only lead people to become fatter and sicker. Here are some high-fat foods that are actually healthy, nutritious, and TASTY.
