Our Personal Strategy For Cutting Fat
OUR PERSONAL STRATEGY FOR CUTTING FAT
Here’s what a typical day of eating looks like for me when I’m cutting (dropping fat)
STEP 1: We start my day off with Coffee ☕️ No actual food. We do this because 1, we like coffee, but it also assists me with weight loss due to its satiating effect and it tends to decrease my appetite. Plus I’m able to focus on work in the morning more effectively when I don’t have a stomach full of food. You can have coffee or tea.
STEP 2: Around noon or 1pm, we’ll have my first meal of the day. I’m a VOLUME eater, meaning I like to have Bigger meals, so by pushing most of my calories to later on in the day, I’m essentially taking what would have been my breakfast calories and splitting them between my lunch & dinner calories. This allows me to have two really big meals which keep me feeling FULL & satisfied. The first meal is usually a big salad with a Chipotle Inspired bowl with Protein (beans, seitan, etc.)
STEP 3: Later on in the evening, most of the time after my workout, I have my last meal which is usually some sort of wrap, burrito bowl, tacos, pasta etc.
Which will contain:
- Whole Grains: brown rice
- Legumes: Seitan, black beans, tofu, etc.
- Veggies: Spinach, Tomatoes, Red Onions, sweet potatoes
Although I switch it up and will have a pasta dish of some sort to keep it interesting.
This way of eating easily keeps me in a calorie deficit, which again is the ONLY way to LOSE weight. Plus by having it in two really BIG meals, I never FEEL like I’m “dieting”.
