FOCUS ON: What You Eat.....And How Much, #1

Many times, you don't reach your goals because you lose FOCUS! Over the next few months, I will help you stay FOCUSED on your health and fitness goals. I will do this by staying FOCUSED on particular subjects for 2 weeks, starting with your eating habits.

In America for sure, we are kings and queens of "too large" servings of food and that's without even "super-sizing" anything! Here are 3 tips to get this series started:

1. If I eat a serving of oatmeal and an apple for breakfast, that's good. If I eat 5 servings of oatmeal and 2 apples for breakfast, that's too much even though I'm eating food that is good for me.

When I played football in college, that was not too much food because of the rate at which I burned calories in the weightroom and at practice. It doesn't help to burn 600 calories exercising if you later eat 1000 calories! It is better to eat 4-6 small meals a day to keep your energy and blood sugar levels steady. So, portion size is a big problem for many people.

2. Don't graze during the day! With the holiday season right around the corner, grazing can become a huge problem! Grazing is eating haphazardly and often between meals. This often leads you to eat high-calorie foods and junk foods. Schedule your snacks between meals with healthy foods like fruit, almonds and low-fat yogurt.

3. Keep a food journal. Research has proven that you will have a better chance of succeeding with your nutrition plan and fat loss if you keep a food journal!

By logging your actual food choices, you are holding yourself accountable throughout the day. You will also be forced to plan your meals better. It will also help protect you from binge eating and emotional eating if you write down why you eat what you eat!

Get started today sharpening your focus on eating better! I will help you do that....see you tomorrow!
