Last week we discussed how to stay motivated when progress isn’t happening…but what if you’re the reason that your progress has stalled!? (Mind blown!)
So remember that easy peasy sweet potato fries recipe from the other day? Well I knew I couldn’t leave you guys hanging so I’m delivering the goods on the other half of the recipe – the bang bang chicken and dipping sauce!
We get this a lot from clients “This just isn’t working for me! I’m logging my food, I promise I’m tracking everything but I’m just not getting any results! I think we need to change my numbers!”
I’ve been absolutely loving the meals we get from Fia’s Fresh Meals lately. Out of all the pre-prepared microwavable meals I’ve tried in the past, they really are a cut above the rest! Not just because their vacuum-packed containers keep their meals super fresh, but the ingredients and the variety of delicious meals is of seriously superior quality. From BBQ chicken pizza to butternut squash lasagna and burritos, they’re menu is crowd pleaser! Check them out and use our code OYE10 to get 10% off your first order.
Maybe you’re not much of a chef and that’s OK! You certainly don’t need to be to be able to follow our program and track your macros. But doing a little bit of food prep now and again can save you a HUGE amount of time in the long-run and save you from a macro-meltdown when you’re having a crappy day!
We get asked this all the time, “Do I really need to weigh and measure my food?”
The answer is YES! Like anything in this world, the more precise you are, the more accurate you are and so it follows, the better the results. Of course there needs to be a balance, we don’t want you to drive yourself crazy or be that guy at the restaurant with your scale on the table – although Jason has been known to be that guy! But when you have access to a kitchen we recommend you weigh and measure your food to improve the results you’ll get from tracking macros.
It’s easy to have motivation when the scale is moving, but what about when that stops? Listen is as Jason and Roz give their tips and strategies on how to stay dialed in when progress isn’t happening.
True story! Part of the reason I love sleep so much is because it transports me to my favorite time, and meal, of the day…BREAKFAST!!! I used to be one of those people that always ate my breakfast on the go, usually it was pretty non-existent, it definitely didn’t contain much protein and almost inevitably was eaten distracted at my desk. But I’ve learnt some lessons along the way and now I prefer to take my time.
Gone are the challenging days of filling in spreadsheets or even more tedious, committing pen to paper to keep track of what you’re eating. The age of “there’s an app for that” has brought with it countless ways in which you can track your fitness and food and along with it SO much more freedom in the foods you can enjoy.
It might be true that no good story ever started with someone eating a salad, but just because salad stories might be boring, that doesn’t mean that they have to taste that way! We’ve been taking a lot lately about how to maintain and quantify that 80/20 balance with your nutrition. We’re 100% on board with the savvy advice from our friend EC at Optimized Nutrition, that 800g a day of fruit and veg is a good target for most adults to shoot for – some may need more, some a little less depending on your overall caloric intake.
