Rules of Nutrition

1- Eat every 2 to 3 hours. This will keep your blood sugar and energy regulated. You will be less likely to want to binge. You will have more energy to want to be active and healthy!

2- Eat a balanced meal. Meals should consist of roughly 50-60 percent carbohydrate, 20-30 percent protein, and 20 percent fat.

3- Eat more when you are more active, less when you are less active. Basically ask yourself "what am I going to be doing the next couple of hours" and base your food intake on that. You do not want to starve yourself all day, come home eat like crazy, and then go to bed. That is a very fast way to get fat.

4. Drink water. People should drink a minimum of 96 ounces of water a day. Being dehydrated will slow your metabolism down, trick your brain to think you are hungry, and will put stress on the liver which is one of the major fat burning organs in the body!

My inlaws

I have to give props to my in-laws, Doug and Jeri. They did great on their program, and have maintained their results. Just the other day I was at their house and opened their fridge, and saw like 10 dozen eggs! Way to go!
