How To Keep 9% Body Fat Year Round Without Dieting Or Counting Calories
When you change your life and change your eating habits you never have to diet again. Counting calories is not a long term solution. Listen in to learn how I keep 9% body fat year round without dieting or counting calories.
If you’ve been following the podcast for any amount of time you’ll know that I cut out most carbs due to high levels of inflammation in my body. However, you can eat carbs if your body doesn’t react the same way.
The most important thing is to make sure you’re eating clean organic foods that aren’t filled with added sugars and processed with tons of preservatives. Even the meat you eat needs to be clean meat. Grass-fed, pasture raised, cage-free protein is what you should be looking for.
Processed sugars and grain-based proteins are a no go! In fact I even eat very little in the way of fruit unless I’m picking out berries. Most fruits have way more sugar in them than I need and berries have amazing antioxidants.
It’s not all about the daily diet however. I also make sure to move daily. When I’m not moving, I feel terrible.
Listen in to hear what I eat every day, get some recommendations on clean brands you can start incorporating into your diet, and why this is all so important to me. Your health is the most important thing. It doesn’t matter how much money you make if you die too young to enjoy it.
