How to eat in the real world for sustainable health, fitness and fat loss
99.9% of our clients don’t count calories, and 99.9% of people don’t ever have to count calories if they simply want to be fit, healthy, lean and energised.
While counting calories works amazingly well when done correctly, and is a great tool to use at certain times for specific goals, for most people it’s just too complex and a pain in the ass to do.
And we find that our clients don’t want to go through life tracking every calorie they eat.
So instead of counting calories, we coach our clients how to eyeball their food and and also use satiety (fullness) cues to make healthy food choices in their every day lives.
Below you’ll see some practical and easy to implement guidelines for what your main meals should look like.
Stop eating when you feel 80% full
When it comes to how much to eat, we coach clients to chew their food slowly and stop eating when they feel 80% full.
It takes 15-20 minutes for your body to realie how full it really is. If you stop eating when you feel 80% full, you’ll feel 100% ful within that timeframe.
If on the other hand you stuff food into your mouth and stop eating when you feel 100% full, not only will you consume a lot more calories, you’ll also end up feeling bloated and sluggish.
Chew your food slowly
Also, if you don’t chew you’re food properly you skip an important part of the digestive process where food is broken down in the mouth and mixed with saliva.
If you eat your food too quickly and bypass this process, your stomach has to churn out extra digestive acid which can cause gastric stress.
We tell clients that their main meals should take 15-20 minutes to eat.
We’re al guilty of eating our food fast some times but you should aim for this to be the exception and not the rule.
Real world benefits
