New Year had just passed around the corner, and like many people your New Year’s Resolution may be to lose weight. The good news is this can be easier than you think. 2017 can be your year to get that beautiful, healthy body you’ve always wanted.
Get RIPPED! participants know that the key to keeping making your resolutions realities in terms of weight loss comes from the combination of regular exercise and healthy eating. There are all kinds of crazy diets out there, but Jari Love has the 3 Must-Haves for every meal that will help you achieve your New Year’s goals.
Jari Love’s Meal Must-Have #1: Clean Protein
If you’re serious about losing weight in the New Year, start eating clean protein at every meal. Lean, high-quality protein takes longer to digest so you feel full longer. Lean protein also gives your body the fuel it needs to build muscle, and the more muscle you build, the faster your metabolism will work and the more weight you will lose in 2017.
Good sources of clean protein include: chicken, turkey, salmon, sardines, shellfish, lean beef and egg whites. Nuts and seeds are good sources of protein too, but they do have a higher fat content so don’t overdo these items.
Jari Love’s Meal Must-Have #2: Good Carbs
Carbs sometimes get a bad rap, and if you want to shed some excess pounds this year, then cutting carbs will help you get there. However, our body needs carbs to function properly and including good carbs with every meal will actually help your body lose weight faster. Good carbs help your body recover and allow both your muscles and your brain to function properly. You need good carbs to fuel your body’s basic functions so that the protein you’re consuming can be used to build lean muscle.
Stay away from: anything processed, white breads, and anything sugary. Choose: beans, legumes, nuts, seeds, brown rice, many fibrous fruits like apples and oranges and of course lots of veggies.
Jari Love’s Meal Must-Have #3: Low Fats/Veggies
If you’re serious about your 2017 weight loss goals, then low fat foods are the final key to your success. This doesn’t mean the packaged low fat foods you buy at the supermarket; these foods can actually hinder your weight loss goals because they replace fats with sugar. Stay away from any processed foods and foods that don’t go bad. By low fat we mean naturally low fat, whole foods. The best way to add low fats and fiber to each and every one of your meals this year is to eat lots and lots of veggies.
Generally speaking, vegetables are also low in calories, so you should feel free to load up on them. Just be sure not to eat them fried or smothered in fatty dressing!
