Hey guys, we all know we need to eat cleaner but not eating enough to support your goals is also an easy way to sabotage your diet. Qualifying your food is just as important and quantifying your food.
The problem with learning how much of what foods to eat is that it is a confusing and time consuming. Unfortunately there is NOT an exact art to counting your calories (macros).
I think in life things are complicated enough, so the easier we can make getting enough of the right kinds of foods the better. Here is a simple rule of thumb for quick portion sizing on the fly.
Don't get me wrong, I think that everyone that has mastered the basics of a healthy diet should spend a period of time weighing and measuring your food. But if your first step is to just clean up your diet and start adding the proper variety of food then that extra time and work can be discouraging.
Over the next few weeks of our 30 day challenge try to be adding carb, veggie, fat and protein choices at every major meal in a quantity that makes you feel full and energized.
