How many veggies do you honestly eat in a given day?
After 12 years of helping people lose tons of weight, our assumption is that you probably are falling a bit short...
But no worries, we have a real world solution that actually works for our clients and we will share not only this tip but 15 in total that are tested and proven in the today's real world (see video below).
Todays strategy is a version of tip #3 from that video. We will give you a fool proof, actionable, and step by step plan that could not be simpler!
This concept will work for almost anyone, no matter what level you currently are or how much bodyweight you actually need/want to lose.
PRE - EAT A VEGGIE!!!
Start by choosig a veggie that you can stomach and ideally one you truly enjoy in it’s raw form like carrot 🥕 , celery or cucumber 🥒 for example.
Now, grab about a handful or so and save it in a container for your next meal.
Then eat that handful of veggies before just one meal (hence the term PRE - EAT) .
No need to change the meal just yet, although you can if you want.
Start with the easiest meal, usually lunch or dinner, and do that for about 1-2 weeks or until it feels “normal-ish”.
Then do it for another meal for another week or 2 ... (again till it feels normal)
Finally do this for a third meal or as a snack if you don't eat that many meals.
Start slowly and build up!
You don't want to make a dramatic change, instead you want it to sneak up on your daily routine almost without you even noticing!
This allows for a more sustainable and long term perspective which is what we want because why just achieve short term goals?
This way it's much more likely to become a new habit just like the habit of brushing your teeth has become apart of your day.
See it just like brushing your teeth at first and allow it to become apart of your long term approach to health.
It will change your life, we guarantee it!
In 4 weeks time you will have consumed more veggies than most people do in 6 months and definitely way more than you personally would have otherwise, right?
And that means GAINZ BABY!
Or more accurately, losses, when it comes to weight lol!!
Weight loss is as much about eliminating Nutrient Deficiencies as it is about “burning calories”, but that’s a whole can of worms in itself which we won't get into here.
Just know this:
more veggies = more nutrients = healthy, happy body = weight loss
Adding more veggies to your day helps us all get more nutrients that we are missing out on. This also means we stay fuller longer, help our bodies detox and repair itself through its trillions of natural processes and it's a beauty secret that helps us look and feel younger!
So shoot for a variety of colors and don't be scared to experiment with different things!
So who’s down to PRE - EAT over the next few weeks?
All the best,
