You Are What You Eat

on January 23, 2011

With January 1st resolutions maybe a distant memory, you may have fallen back into your old dietary ways.

Even if you’re at the gym plugging away at weight and cardio machines, you may be finding that you’re not reaching your goals as fast as you’d like to.

What are you eating these days?

What you eat, how much you eat, and when you eat can greatly impact your weight loss gains (or should I say losses?!)

Eating well, nutritiously MOST of the time, is going to make dramatic differences in how quickly you shed those unwanted pounds. Just exercising (even though exercise is great!) is not going to get you to your ultimate weight loss goals, at least not nearly as quickly.

Keeping a food diary daily can really help you keep track of what you’re eating, when you’re eating it, and maybe even why you’re eating it (were you hungry, or was it just in front of you so you ate it?) A great resource center, which is free, is called sparkpeople.com, where you can track your daily  food intake and it will show you how many calories, fat grams, protein and carbs that you are actually taking in. It can also give you a meal planner so you can plan how to eat for a certain amount of calories.

Working out regularly is a great way to help you burn calories while also building lean muscle tissue, but it needs to go hand in hand with great eating patterns.
