You only need to eat these three things every day

It really is that simple. Make sure these three things are in your diet every day and you will see results.

1. Carbohydrates:

That word alone makes most people cringe and hide. Considering there's so many "low carb" and "low carb" diets out there, I understand why. Carbohydrates are a very broad subject with lots of different categories. One of these categories is vegetables, which are nothing to be leaving out of your diet. Carbs are literally everywhere and can not/should not be avoided. Make sure your cupboards and fridge include 55% complex and fibrous carbs! Here are some examples:

Complex:

  • Oatmeal
  • Sweet Potato and Yams
  • Quinoa
  • Brown Rice
  • Lentils and Kidney Beans
  • Low Carb Tortilla's

Fibrous: 

  • Any green vegetable.
  • Cauliflower
  • Peppers
  • Onion & Garlic
  • Tomatos

2. Fats: 

Again, there are so many "low fat" diets out there that this word gets a bad reputation. In simple, there's healthy fats and unhealthy fats. Unhealthy fats include anything trans and saturated such as animal fats, pastries, fried foods, fast food, chips, cookies, you get the idea. Healthy fats is what we NEED in our diets in order to get energy, build healthy cells, help the body use essential vitamins, etc. These should be 15% of your diet. How do you get best these types of healthy fats?

  • Nuts and natural nut butters (Such as peanut butter - yay! But watch your portions
  • Fish
  • Omega 3 & 6 supplements

3. Protein

Protein keeps you full, satisfied and builds strong muscles, hair and skin. It's also directly involved in your digestion and metabolism. It is very important to have protein portions with EVERY meal, roughly 30% of your diet. Here are some examples:

  • Lean chicken and turkey breast
  • Tofu
  • Plain & Greek Yogurt
  • Eggs
  • Nuts
  • Beans
  • Fish

Keep your kitchen stacked with these essential foods and you'll be on track to weight loss, no matter what. It's not rocket science and your body will thank you for it. After a few days, your body will stop craving sugars and salts and taste buds will start craving the healthy things we need!
