The FAB 5 (meals a day)

“I really wanna lose weight, but where do I even START!?”

Don’t panic, but you start by eating 5 meals a day!! I know you just read that and thought… “WHAT??  SHE’S NUTS!” Because it sounds like this would be the opposite of how to lose weight, but what happens is that you need to start out by consuming breakfast to kick-start your metabolism for the day. Much like warming up before start to exercise, Breakfast actually means “breaking the fast” from not eating during your nights sleep. From there, think of eating a breakfast, lunch, and dinner with 2 snacks in between. Typically you would want these snacks to come as a pre and post workout meal. Of course depending on your workout time during the day this is not always possible.

The 3 main meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner should not be the traditional (full-blown, stuff yourself until you can’t move) meals, but just eat to the point that you are no longer hungry. The body does not require the amount of food (we tend to put into it) The best thing to remember is to eat less food…but eat more often.

Having this mind set (along with vigorous exercise 3-4 days a week will have you losing the pounds & on your way to a fitter, slimmer you in no time.

Luv & Muscles,
Lisa
