Hi, I'm not looking for any special diet with abunch of rules. I just need help with a basic healthy food regimen for weightloss.
Does anyone have any advice to help me?
I read so much stuff about what I should and shouldn't eat, and honestly it get confusing. I'm just wanting advice from real people, on a healthy diet that has worked for them? What are the basics!?
You're welcome. I've seen so many examples of people who believe they are eating "clean" food, but they completely disregard the calories. My maintenance calories are 3100. For the last 4 weeks I've been reducing my calories each week & I'm now at 2191 because I want to lose 1-2lbs per week and keep it off. I can now basically eat anything I like because I'm eating at a deficit (I eat healthy the majority of the time but had nachos & Ice-cream this weekend!). If I stop losing weight I'll reduce by another 5% etc etc. Once I hit my goal weight I can then start getting technical with macros (I've been on high protein for 3 weeks but am not moving on to high carb for example) but no matter what I do it's the CALORIES that are important. I've helped people who couldn't understand why they weren't losing weight but when I looked at their food they were eating 3000-4000 of "clean" food!!!!! Ermmmmmm that's not how it works people's!!!
