Seriously?! Don’t fall for this

The madness has to stop.

This might come across as a soapbox rant, and for that I apologize, but trust me when I say that this is a message that needs to be spread.

Your fat loss depends on it.

We all want to be fit and lean, right? So why do we fool ourselves into thinking that we are eating healthy…when our diets consist of so many processed foods?

Don’t fall for it: so-called healthy packaged foods are NOT guilt-free.

I can’t tell you how many folks I’ve seen chow down on organic, all-natural, gluten-free, vegan or high-fiber packaged foods…only to see their fat loss halt and reverse.

What did you expect?

Packaged snacks and desserts are going to stop fitness results and encourage fat storage. Every. Single. Time.

Even if it says healthy, or all-natural, or high-fiber, or organic, or gluten-free, or vegan.

If it’s processed and packaged then it’s getting in the way of your results.

If you are serious about shaping up your body then throw out the packaged foods and opt for wholesome, real foods instead.

Start with these:

  • lean protein
  • fruits
  • vegetables
  • nuts
  • seeds
  • avocados

When it comes to fat loss, eating clean is half of the battle. The other half is all about effective, challenging and consistent exercise.

Simple Tuna Salad

Here’s a simple and light version of tuna salad. It cuts out high-calorie mayonnaise and adds some chopped fruit and vegetables to really liven it up. This is a great recipe to enjoy as you journey towards your fitness goal. Servings: 4

Here’s what you need…

  • 1 green apple, chopped
  • 2 green onions, tops only, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 cans albacore tuna, in drained
  • 1 Tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup red grapes, halved
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  1. Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl and serve immediately. I like to serve this salad in large butter lettuce leaves, or scooped onto avocado halves. Enjoy!
