When I sent a survey out in April to my email subscribers, many requested healthy lunch ideas. I did a Facebook Live a few weeks ago sharing my 3 favorite ways to Meal Prep Healthy Lunches for Weight Loss as well as tips for pairing foods together properly so you’re eating the right foods and not over or under eating a carbohydrate, protein or fat.
There are two common issues I see with my clients. The first is over eating one nutrient, usually a carbohydrate or fat. Most people don’t overeat protein. In fact, most eat less protein then they’re supposed to. The second issue is not eating the right portion size. You can eat avocados until you turn green, but you will gain weight if you eat too many of them. Yes, they are a healthy food but like any food if you eat above your body’s calorie needs you will gain weight. Healthy or unhealthy, you can weight eating any food. Your body doesn’t discriminate.
