I don't know about you but I love to eat healthy whole foods! I love how my body feels when it's fueled with the foods it craves and I love having a trim waistline. 

Having a pantry full of healthy foods makes it easier to stay on track with your fitness and weight loss goals along with losing weight easier and with less effort. You can train all day long in a gym but if you don't eat clean you will become highly frustrated and give up before you give yourself a real chance to see transformation in your body.  Your body desires foods it can actually process. 

Below are weight loss “Yes” foods and “No” foods that make you fat.  By eating foods on the "Yes" list you will lose weight and will feel great!  The Weight loss foods will assist your efforts in losing weight.  

To kick-start your metabolism aim to workout Monday thru Saturday first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Your glycogen (sugar) stores will be low from a long nights rest leaving your body to use your stored energy (fat) as fuel to get you through your tough workout. Having a pre-workout drink is also highly beneficial to drink before and during training.  

By eating foods on the "Yes" list you can create meals that will burn fat, maintain & build lean muscle tissue. To lose weight faster only eat carbs and fruits in the A.M after you workout, then eat proteins and veggies throughout the remainders of the day. Eating clean is highly rewarding and very satisfying.  

Print this list and place it in your pantry where you can refer to it often. If you don't buy foods on the "No" list then you won't be tempted to eat them.

Be sure to eat a small meal consisting of protein and fresh veggies and/or salads every 3 to 4 hours. Also, drink a gallon or more of purified water each day along with 2 packets of Liv Sxinney to keep your metabolism in fat burning mode. 

If you stick to eating the foods listed below then you will be well on your way to transform your physique to that of your dreams!
