Before and after your little workout you can turn up your favorite music and dance for 5 minutes - it makes us happy and we workout at the same time. If you dance for 30 minutes you burn as many calories as when you would go jogging for the same amount of time.

Now let’s talk about food. If you are starving yourself this will not work out.
Reduce your meals day by day very little. If you love to bench eat this will help reduce your hunger. Pro tip, brush your teeth after every meal and drink 2-3 glasses of water before you eat. Have your dinner no later than 7pm, if you get hungry after - eat nuts.
Foods to fully avoid:
Chocolate Bars or Candy
Be aware of hidden calories in juice drinks, Starbucks drinks and so on. Before purchasing groceries look at the label and if it has more than 5g added sugar - put the item on the no purchase list. Same goes for carbs and try to stay under 15g carbs with groceries. Why 15g? low carb bread usually has 15g total carbohydrates listed.
Your go-to foods will be vegetables, beans, lentils, nuts, meats or plant based meats, eggs or just egg, salads and, okay you can eat max 2 slices of low carb bread.
We will get into the details in another blog soon of low-carb eating and brands to purchase.
1.) Find a time to do the little workout daily - I personally do 11am, and once I am in this routine, I will do it again at 4pm.
2.) Reduce your meals and eat less every day. Do not fast or give up all foods at once - this will cause a jojo-effect. You have to take your time with this - start with 4 weeks to get this process in.
3.) Drink 2 glasses of water before each meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner).
4.) Don’t eat dinner after 7pm, the time after 7 to the morning will give your body time to digest and adjust to your changes. If you just fast and eat nothing for a day or more you will start right where you started - at zero. This is a process that can be only implemented over time.
Good Luck and watch out for our low-carb recipes, sugar-free donuts that allow you snacking guilt-free.
