Fitness Begins In The Kitchen?
Updated: Feb 9, 2018
Have you heard the term "Fitness Begins In The Kitchen"? Well if you haven't, now you have. After changing my way of eating 20 months ago, I am a true believer that fitness really does all begin in the kitchen. Many people who are unsuccessful in weight loss believe in the old "move more, eat less." It's come to my understanding that nothing could be further from the truth. My belief is "it's all in what you eat". I am not a doctor, scientist, trainer, or dietitian. I'm just someone that has followed this rule and have had success in loosing over 60 lbs. It is said and proven that 80% of weight loss battle is in your nutrition. I do exercise weekly 3 to 5 times a week, but the kitchen is wear my fitness begins. I eat protein, healthy fats, vegetables, (some) fruits, and keep my carbohydrates low. I plan all my meals and snacks, prepare foods ahead, I try to be creative and think outside the box, and I make my foods appeal to they eye (we eat with our eyes first). So far good success.
Think Outside The Box ...
In the mood for a sandwich? Then think outside the box by making a salad from your favorite once upon a time sandwich. Turn a plain old roast beef sandwich into a well balanced, delicious meal that will last you all afternoon.
