Let's face it, health and fitness is not a huge priority for many people...
if it were, there would be more gyms than restaurants and
all the fast food places would go out of business.
The foods below are the foods that make your body look
great, the catch is that they don't taste anywhere near as great as
junk food. Everyone has a different level of what they are willing to
give up as far as eating all the delicious junk food. There is
nothing wrong with eating junk food but just know that the
more of it you eat, the worse you are going to look even if you are not
over weight. It just
comes down to daily choices of what you want, delicious
treats or a fit body.
This is a list of all the foods I eat:
I eat everything plain. (spices and seasonings are fine)
If you are putting cheese, butter sauces, mayonnaise,
fried up breaded coatings,
etc. on everything, you are defeating the
purpose of eating this way so don't even bother
and just try to eat as healthy as you can.
This is a very common list of food for healthy people, nothing new here!

This is just a basic list to get you headed in the right
direction, there are plenty of other great foods not on this list... this is just a simple starting point.....and your eating comes down to whatever works for you...... I eat differently every single day, so I do not have a
sample day or 'typical' day.. I just make consistent choices of plain food
crap. Then I apply common sense... if my clothing gets too tight, that
means I am eating too much... After a while you become very familiar with your eating needs.
If I had to guess I probably eat about 40%carb 40%protein 20%fat but these of course are not exact numbers.
Many people set out to follow a plan of eating right
and they don't stay consistent.. never see results and then wonder what is
wrong and get discouraged. Stick with it and you will see great changes!!
How much should you eat for your body and your goals? If you are completely lost, do a search for a "daily calorie requirements" calculator or chart... This is just a guide to help you, it is not an exact number.
Over complicating can be a BIG mistake and I can't get
over how many people take that road. Fuel your body
properly and step away from eating the crap.
Results take time and consistency.., so don't give up!
