Commandments of Fat Loss

OK…I didn’t come up with this but I did read it and thought it was good enough to put some of it here.  The original can be found at MohrResults.com America’s Weight Loss Experts

The 10 Commandments of Fat Loss

  1. Thou Shalt Plan Ahead.
  2. Thou Shalt Eat Clean 90% of the Time…To me this means eating healthy foods
  3. Thou Shalt Eat Breakfast Daily.
  4. Thou Shalt Eat Protein with EVERY Meal & Snack.
  5. Thou Shalt Lift Weights.
  6. Thou Shalt Eat Veggies with Each Meal.
  7. Thou Shalt Not Eat Cereal with Cartoons on the Box.
  8. Thou Shalt Move Daily.
  9. Thou Shalt Eat Fruit with Each Meal.
  10. Thou Shalt Only Eat Ingredients You Can Pronounce…To me this means no added chemicals (Quinoa is healthy but I didn’t know it was pronounced keen-wa) 
Now onto the another list to help out with the top list.  47 Foods You SHOULD Be Eating is from Mens Health Magazine Blog via a tweet.
  1. Spinach
  2. Wild salmon (fresh and/or canned)
  3. Blueberries
  4. Raspberries
  5. Swiss chard
  6. Quinoa
  7. Rolled oats
  8. Pistachios
  9. Barramundi (often called “the sustainable sea bass”) can be found in the frozen section of Whole Foods & has half the calories, yet equal omega 3′s to coho salmon)
  10. Plain Greek yogurt
  11. Apples
  12. Red, yellow and orange bell peppers
  13. Lean red meat (we prefer grass fed beef)
  14. Whole eggs

  27. Coconut (either fresh, where you crack the shell or unsweetened, shredded)
  28. Strawberries
  29. Avocados
  30. Tomatoes (raw and cooked as both have unique benefits)
  31. Pumpkin (we often add canned, unsweetened 100% pure pumpkin to our smoothies)
  32. Unsweetened cocoa powder or cocoa nibs (also often added to smoothies or Greek yogurt)
  33. Pineapple
  34. Sweet potatoes or yams (technically not the same, yet they’re often used interchangeably)

Not really funny, as in haha, but, funny how this is what I did when I was in my Biggest  Loser Competition.  Maybe I am smart!

    I don’t follow 2 and 4 ooops
    I eat clean 70 /80 % of the time and don’t have protein at every meal… I keep trying to increase my protein intake though…

    I hope you’re still doing/eating these things outside of your competition. It would be a challenge to incorporate everything but I think once you start with a healthy mindset things would get easier. I just started lifting weights for the first time and aside from it being good for weight loss, It also makes me feel really good. Also, I think most of the food on that list is delicious. Thanks for sharing!
