If you are a single mother and you do not have the time or money to join a gym and work with a personal trainer this article will show you how to get rid of fat and boost your energy without wasting time or money. I am writing this article for single moms because now more than ever most of my weight-loss clients are women who are raising children on their own and working at the same time. Because of this they have little time for exercise and measuring portions of food to eat throughout the day. So and in this article I am going to show you a quick and super effective method to shed excess body fat, have tons of energy and help to get back to your pre-baby body.
First of all we are going to start off with your daily diet. Each and every day you’re going to have a Ziploc bag in which you will put 1 pound of raw vegetables. Now you can stop at any almost supermarket and they have huge selection of prepackaged vegetables ranging from leafy green vegetables such as lead as and spinach to carrots, cucumbers and celery. To keep things interesting you can switch to a different vegetable everyday or just mix a bunch of different vegetables into one bag.
This bag of raw vegetables is going to be your snack for the entire day. Whatever you were hungry or craving something to eat just reach into a bag and eat a fresh and delicious vegetable
I would like you to eat your first meal within the first 60 minutes of waking up. Because this is a usually hectic time for most single mothers I going to recommend that you keep breakfast simple fast and easy. I’m going to recommend that you have a cup of sugar free yogurt and a fresh fruit. The fruit that you eat really does not matter but if you are looking for the best nutritional fruit I would recommend that you eat a cup of berries. You can’t eat strawberries, blueberries or even blackberries it really does not matter.
I’m going to ask you to eat almost every 3 to 4 hours throughout the day. So this means that you are going to have breakfast lunch and dinner and lots of snacks in between.
Now portion size does matter but I am not going to force you to measure each and everything that you eat. What I am going to suggest to you is that when you sit down for lunch and dinner at you actually use a plate and that you divide the plate into quarters. One quarter of the plate should be filled with some type of lean protein like meat chicken or fish. Another quarter of the plate can be filled with a starch carbohydrate like a piece of bread or a little bit of brown rice. The remaining two quarters of the plate should be filled with vegetables both cooked and raw.
What I am going to be very strict about is what you eat during the last three hours before you go to bed. In order to wake-up skinnier the next day you really should not eat anything all three hours before you go to bed. But in today’s society I know that this is sometimes difficult and unrealistic. So if you have to eat during this time I would recommend that you eat only 1 to 2 ounces of lean protein and leafy green vegetables. Do not eat any type starch carbohydrate such as bread or anything else that is made with any type of flour.
So there you have it a very simple and effective blueprint for dieting and weight loss. If you would combine this with some type of exercise program you would even lose more weight. In my next article I will outline for you a fat burning exercise routine that will only take you approximately 10 to 15 minutes to perform and you do it only three days a week.
