A Shopping List For Anyone Serious About Getting In Great Shape
A quick blog article today, I just wanted to share a shopping list of foods to include if you’re in a fat loss phase. Foods which are FULL of nutrients and goodness to keep you full and give you energy. As much as your body CAN burn fat eating shit .. it does make it a lot harder as once one sweet thing is consumed it makes your body crave another!
So here is the list. Enjoy and get shopping. – Remember if you don’t have the food you binge on in you can’t eat it!
Carb sources (orbit around workouts)
Basmati white rice
(Try avoid wheat/gluten carbs but don’t stress it won’t kill you but may help bloating/fat loss long term but don’t stress about the little things) 🙂
Protein – aim for at LEAST 30g with each meal for optimum fat loss
All fish – tuna, salmon, trout, white fish – sea bas etc
Exotic meats (check out the link for musclefood.com which has AMAZING deals on meats http://track.ilikethis.com/hit.php?w=138845&s=214 )
Full fat Greek yogurt (the brand ‘total’ has more protein and probiotics than other brands)
Quest bars, Grenade bars (probably the only two protein bars which aren’t full of crap!) http://track.ilikethis.com/hit.php?w=138845&s=214 – have a search with the link again.
Veg – (stay fuller for longer with more fibre and nutrients) – plus so little calories!! No chance of fat or weight gain!
Try Seuerkraut – full of probiotics for good gut health
Berries (frozen berries are awesome and slightly cheaper for more) blueberries and raspberries make an awesome sweat snack!
Essential fats (with protein) – (stay fuller for longer)
Salmon, trout, mackerel
Raw nuts, macadamia
Dark chocolate 85%+
– fruit juice – a lot of sugar in this …
– sugary foods – too much sugar will lead to lower energy levels and cravings for the stuff!!
Take aways – like curry etc usually the sauces etc are full of calories!) making fat loss really hard. Remember one bad meal won’t make you fat.
Alcohol – although you can still lose bodyfat if you’re careful with this and factor it into your daily calorie needs! Alcohol will lower testosterone (the important man hormone for burning fat and building muscle!)
To sum up – include some of these nutrient dense foods in your life. See your focus go up at work and your belly shrink! For done for you training I currently have one space available for coaching in my private gym (first session free).
