Don’t try to lose weight by not eating. It’s recommended that you eat 5-6 small meals a day to fuel your metabolism. People often remark that I’m always eating. Yep, pretty much, every 3 hours!
You’ll notice that most fitness programs come with some sort of meal plan or eating guide. Sometimes when I’m trying to follow a meal plan, like the 21 Day Fix, it seems like there is too much food. But, I find that if I skip out on some of the veggies or snacks I’m supposed to eat I’ll reach for something unhealthy when I get hungry. If I had just followed the plan and ate everything I was supposed to I wouldn’t be hungry and eating junk.
One of the ways I avoid reaching for junk is by Meal Prepping. Check out my post about How & Why I Meal Prep. You can even watch a video of me doing it! If you’re starting a fitness program or doing exercise of any kind you need to fuel your body. You wouldn’t expect your car to drive you across the country without first fueling up.
