Eating to Look Lean

When it comes to eating to look lean, there are really only three questions that need answers; What, When and How Much.

What
Each of your meals needs to include all three of the following components:

  1. Lean quality protein to repair and regenerate all the cells and tissues in the body (ex: chicken, turkey, fish, pork, beef, egg whites and low-fat dairy products)
  2. Clean carbs for energy and fiber (ex: all-natural and whole-grain sources, including rice, pasta, potatoes, cereals, breads)
  3. Fruits and vegetables for nutrients and fiber

When
You must consider that your body can only store roughly four hours’ worth of fuel, so the traditional three meals a day format often leaves you with six or more hours between meals. Even if you make healthy choices, your body is still running out of fuel, and is forced to burn muscle. The solution is to maintain a balanced breakfast and dinner, but instead of having just one lunch at midday, have two lunches, one in the late morning and the other in the early afternoon.

How Much
When you eat this way you can rest assured that your body is getting an adequate amount of nutrients and energy, which will prevent your body from ever consuming its own muscle tissue as an energy source. This in turn will keep your fat-burning metabolism functioning efficiently. Make sure each of your four meals contains:

  1. Fist-size serving of fruits and/or vegetables
  2. Fist-size serving of clean carbs.
