On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing 5 new easy and sustainable rules of Live Lean eating.
During my Live Lean journey, I’ve followed many rules when it comes to healthy eating.
I still follow most of the rules today.
However, I’ve ditched a few of the other rules for more sustainable practices that anyone can do.
Here are my 5 new rules of Live Lean Eating.
I like to keep it simple by focusing on one ingredient foods.
Eat foods that come from the earth, not from a food laboratory.
Here’s the new spin on this one ingredient rule that I just became aware of.
Although there are thousands of different varieties of one ingredient foods to choose from, I now like to keep it simple.
I’ve found my body looks and functions optimally, when I simplify my diet down to a core group of approximately 20 Live Lean superfoods.
This make it easier to grocery shop and keep the fridge stocked, as I can always mix and match the foods, and occasionally swap out comparable foods, to make delicious and easy recipes, using just 20 core foods.
This is one of the nutrition rules I’ve changed over the years.
I’m not saying this is wrong, but I am saying meal frequency is a less important topic than you think.
This is especially true if you are not training to be the next monster sized bodybuilder, which I know a lot of you aren’t.
Living Lean is a sustainable lifestyle so you need to make it fit for you.
If that’s eating 3 bigger meals a day, do it.
If that’s eating 6 meals a day, do that.
I want you to experiment and find what works best for your specific goals and lifestyle.
If you want to lose 20 pounds in 2 months, it’s time to dial it in.
This means you should calculate and track your calorie and macronutrient requirements.
Doing this was a game changer for me early on in my Live Lean journey.
Now that’s not to say you need to weigh your food for the rest of your life.
In other words, after a few months of training, you’ll be able to look at a plate of food and roughly guess if it fits your nutritional needs.
However, if you feel frustrated by your lack of results, then it may be time to “dial it in” and get more serious about measuring your portions.
Trust me, it’s much easier to stick to healthy eating when you have access to quick, delicious, and easy to make recipes, as well as having a few simple, go-to recipes, that don’t require you to be a world class chef, or have to scour the earth to find unique ingredients.
The next rule is an important one.
One of the big lessons you’ll learn about Living Lean is that it’s not about being perfect.
When you let go of the desire to be perfect, you let go of the stress that is related to food.
It’s important to realize that food is your friend and will become your best ally in reaching your fitness goals, when you follow these rules.
You’ll also embrace social outings, rather than becoming an anti-social, miserable hermit, thus allowing your journey to be much more enjoyable.
Let go of the pressure to be perfect, and just focus on the small daily progressions.
These consistent small wins will add up to big time, long-term success.
