Trim Healthy Mama is not about obsessing or number counting. But having a few guidelines can help you bring your eating into balance. This can be especially important if you have gotten confused with all the chatter around about what you “should” and “should not” eat.
Your body craves balance. Blood sugar balance, fat balance, and carb balance.
With Trim Healthy Mama, you will bring your body into a place of healing and balance so it can release fat. You do this by cycling your fuels. Choosing a fat focus fuel (S-Satisfying) means you add healthy fats to your protein-focused meal but keep your carbs very low. A carb-focused meal (E-Energizing) is focused on a lean protein with added healthy carbs. Both meals should include good amounts of non-starchy veggies. Read here for a refresher on your fat & carb number guidelines.
Let’s take a look now at the Fuel Pull meal (FP). This meal will be centered around lean protein ...
Have you ever wondered if fat plays a role in your weight loss journey? If so, what kind and how much? Or does that even matter:)
Let’s take a look at the S fuel, the SATISFYING fuel.
Fats are satisfying. When you eat fatty food or a fatty meal, you're usually satisfied for a good long time.
The S(atisfying) meal includes protein plus fat.
How much protein should you be eating? Normally, you can look at the size of your palm. And that's about how much protein you need. At each meal. You’re looking anywhere from 15 - 30 grams of protein. Anchor all of your meals and snacks with some type of protein to help keep your blood sugar stable.
The S(atisfying) meal is protein PLUS non starchy veggies PLUS fat.
Non Starchy veggies are the vegetables that don't have a lot of starch in them. They're not carb heavy at all. Look at broccoli and summer squash. Check out cauliflower and Romaine lettuce.
