Food Plan List for Assistance with Dieting
& Limiting Bad Foods!
This week, I received an email from a former naval officer, who needed to get back moving again. The good news is that he started just before Thanksgiving, which will help him avoid a few extra pounds we gain at parties, imbibing spirits, big sports weekend snacks, Thanksgiving and Christmas feasts, and several other big meals during the Holidays. It all adds up to our caloric intake. The “former pilot - now desk jockey” writes:
I started working out using your 45 Day Plan for Beginners last week and already am feeling better than I have in a decade. Of course, I did NO activity other than work behind a desk after getting out of the Navy in the 90’s. But, I need some assistance with the Food Plan you have. Do you have a simple list that could break down the foods I should be eating and not eating or at least try to limit? PS – love the water consumption.
I have updated the plan a bit but will add the following chart in a few days as requested. Here is what I would recommend to eat MORE of and LESS of in order to have energy to exercise and build lean muscle, help with health issues such as high blood pressure and cholesterol, and assist with weight loss of fat.
The list of foods above are general foods we tend to eat regularly and many are omitted due to space of the article, but these should help you take control of your food intake yourself. Nothing above is NEWS to anyone, but sometimes we need a good / bad comparison with healthful alternatives. Eating well does not mean your food has to taste like cardboard and you will starve yourself trying to eat healthy.
So keep it up during the Holidays and see if you can actually lose weight during this end of the year time where parties and family / friend visits can tend to cause our healthful eating habits to stray.
Get ready for the New Year with a workout plan.
