My client came into my office and declared “After 9 months, I finally like to exercise!” First, I would like to congratulate her on this new rewarding behavior. This particular client has also lost 50 pounds during these months. The point here is that you can change your behavior and consequently change your thoughts, perceptions and even life.
A few of my blog readers asked me to share an example of a high fiber carbohydrate, lean protein, healthy fat meal as mentioned in my last blog. Here are two examples.
A turkey (lean protein) sandwich on whole grain bread (high fiber carbohydrate) with avocado slices (healthy fat, specifically monounsaturated fat).
Whole wheat pasta ( high fiber carbohydrate) with turkey meatballs ( lean protein, >/ = 93 % lean ground turkey) with tomato sauce ( made with olive oil, the healthy fat).
Try this to help you feel full and stay full longer:
eat high fiber carbohydrates, lean proteins and healthy fats at the same meal. This will help reduce extreme blood sugar fluctuations, moderate insulin release and ultimately help you manage your weight.
