Things I eat...

Friday, April 24, 2009

Okay, here it is a list of the "clean" "plain" foods I eat. I will not list quantities because no two people are alike, everyone requires different amts based on activity level & I am not a personal trainer. Which means I don't "know" how much you should eat;) lol If you eliminate the processed foods or the stuff that never goes bad, ie has a shelf life of forever, that alone will help tremendously.

If you follow the guidelines here on Sparkpeople, it will work for you. But you have to follow it.
Which means eating what the plan says, and NOT eating the junk food. Most people set out to follow the plan, and then never do and never see results and then wonder what is wrong. If you aren't following the plan and eliminating all the junk food you love to eat, you will always be wondering why you are still in the same place.

If you are searching for the 'right plan' which will give you instant results and make you not like the delicious taste of junk food anymore, please understand there is no magic pill, exercise or food.

There is no magical combination of these clean/plain foods which will give you instant results. The key is to fuel your body properly, followed by weight-training & cardio consistently. Results take time.

Carbs don't make you fat. Over eating or eating more calories than you burn each day makes you gain weight. Carbs are important so don't be lame and eliminate them :)

    Fantastic list! You go girl! I am just starting out so I am trying not to completely rid myself of junk food because I am so scared if I say no that it will make me want it more and I'll go overboard BUT I am making better choices every day and reading your list is extremely inspiring to me. :)

    Great list! I do all, except for the meat products. Add tofu, seitan, tempeh and edamame for us vegetarian clean eaters!
