How To Properly Fuel Your Body Without Tracking
Before you start trying to hit your goals without tracking, I would like you to track your food for at least 1 week, hitting your specific macro goals. This will help you better understand portion sizes, and experience how much protein you need. I have stated several times in the other posts within this series, Protein is the #1 priority for any goal whether that be weight loss, building muscle, or maintaining your current weight. Many people think they are getting enough protein but until they track it, see It, and eat It, It can be very hard to understand what enough actually Is.
Learning To Create Your Plate:
You can easily create your own recipe or meal by using the palm, fist, fist method.
- A palm size amount of protein
- Fist size amount of veggies
- And a fist size amount of carbs
Fats will fill In on their own with the oil, butter, dressing, avocado, egg yolks, other Ingredients that you might typically use.
The palm, fist, fist method is not exact but it is a great tool for learning how to properly fuel your body when tracking Is not an option, your on vacation, out to dinner, at a friends house, or you just don’t want to track!
Be sure to get:
- Protein In with every meal
- Eat 3-5 servings of veggies every day
- Eat 2-3 servings of fruit every day
- Try to eat as much whole, unprocessed, unpackaged foods as possible
