This often starts with nutrition. You can workout every single day but if your nutrition is not in check, reaching your goals my seem a bit arduous. Our 12 Nutrition Steps for Success will help guide you in the right direction if you are consistently following these steps 90% of the week.
Step 5: Eat vegetables with each meal
As you've probably heard from your mother and grandmother when you were a kid, "eat your veggies." Well they were right!! According to Precision Nutrition, by developing the habit of eating vegetables at each meal, you're more likely to get your 10 servings of cancer-fighting, free-radical-destroying, acid-neutralizing, and micronutrient-rich power per day.
In other words, if you have fat to lose, you've got to earn those higher-carbohydrate meals by exercising first. This isn't to be mistaken for a "low-carbohydrate diet," rather, it's a controlled-carbohydrate diet. If you have fat to lose but haven't just worked out, eat less pasta, rice, bread and other starchy carbs. Opt for a double serving of veggies instead. If you have just worked out, a mix of carb sources is fine.
Step 7: Eat healthy fats daily
Health, body composition, and performance can be optimized by balancing saturated, monounsaturated (extra virgin olive oil, some nuts and avocados), and polyunsaturated fats (from some nuts, some vegetable oils, and fish oil supplements). By adding these to a diet of fruits and veggies, carbohydrates, when earned, and lean proteins, your dietary fat intakes should balance right out.
Step 8: Drink your post workout shake
Always drink a workout shake either during your workout or within 10 minutes of finishing your workout. Use a high quality clean protein mixed with fruit or other carbohydrate. You will not get everything out of your workout if you skip this step. You must replenish your body immediately after your workout with quick releasing carbs and fats (a shake is best) to ensure optimal recovery.
