My Plan of Action for Weight Loss

1) Drink 64oz of water a day.

2) No processed foods; eat fresh.

3) Cut sugar and excess salt.

4) Hang out in the produce section of the supermarket.

5) Eat every 3 hours to keep my blood sugar stable.

6) Eat whole grains: brown rice instead of white rice, whole wheat pasta instead of regular pasta, whole wheat bread instead of white bread.

7) Portion control: 50% of your plate should be vegetables, 25% should be protein, 25% carbs.

8) Eat a balanced diet: 1-2 servings of protein, 3-5 servings of vegetables, 2-4 servings of fruit, 1-2 servings of dairy, 6 servings of whole grains, 1 serving of good fat (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated: almonds, olive oil, avocado, salmon etc) daily.

9) Maximum daily calorie intake is 1600.

10) Exercise 30 minutes a day; the more you do, the more you burn.

I am trying so hard not to eat processed food. It is the hardest thing in this hurry up world.

For sure, I try to eat as little processed food as I can too but its hard when most things in the canteen at work are all from packets. Only way to do it seems to be a lot of planning and a lot of sandwich bags/home prepared food.

"No processed food."

Easier said than done, right? But is convenience really worth risking your health?
