Nutrition Tip #4
Research has shown that consuming eggs for breakfast will help you eat less calories throughout the day and will help boost fat burning capabilities. Stick with scrambling a combination of egg whites and regular eggs for your daily breakfast. Egg yolks may be high in cholesterol but they contain all the healthy, fatty acids that are contained within the egg. In addition, 80% of the overall vitamins and minerals that can be found within the egg as a whole.
Nutrition Tip #5
Consuming certain fats can actually promote fat loss and not fat gain. Stick with omega-3s and keep your fat intake at about 30% of your total daily calories. Stick with salmon, sardines or trout as well as other healthy fat sources such as olive oil, peanut butter and walnuts. These foods can actually boost your fat loss compared to eating a low-fat diet.
Nutrition Tip #6
Cut out the white rice immediately. This food, stripped of all of its grain and healthy counterparts, is high on the glycemic index and will lead to a dreaded insulin spike. The only time that white rice is really beneficial is immediately after a workout because an insulin spike is necessary here. Switch to brown rice. Not only is this superfood low on the glycemic index to provide you with steady energy, but it is rich in magnesium and calcium, which are two minerals that help promote bone mineral density.
