– Every meal and snack should contain some protein and fiber to help fill you up & keep you full.

– Your protein sources should be lean (e.g. fish, chicken, beans & legumes (also a source of fiber), tofu, nuts & seeds…)

– You should eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables… in their whole form is best. Also, keep in mind that they lose nutrients the longer they sit after being picked, so sometimes frozen is a better option. and be careful for pesticides… always wash your fruits & veggies before eating them!

– If you consume dairy products, make sure to keep them low fat or fat-free. You could also substitute milk alternatives such as soy, almond, or rice milk (and cheese, yogurt, etc…)

– The majority, if not all, of your grain products should be whole-grain. This can be whole wheat, oatmeal, quinoa, bulgur, amaranth, barley, brown rice, etc… the possibilities are virtually endless! Don’t eat refined grains! This is one of the biggest downfalls for people trying to lose weight. They spike your blood sugar and make you hungry again in an hour. Not to mention they have much fewer nutrients than whole grains, and the ones that are there are added in artificially… yuck!

Hope I helped & good luck!

What is the best cardio/strength training combo to maximize weight loss?

Question by hdeleszek101: What is the best cardio/strength training combo to maximize weight loss?
I am looking to loose weight the healthy way with exercise and healthy living. My goal is to loose 1-2 lbs per week and I have decided to utilize the Weight Watchers Flex Point system to help me on the food end. Now I need to know how to work out the right way. How long should I walk/lift weights? Should I alternate days? Is is okay to work out for a half hour or should I go longer? Is it more important to walk a mile in 17 minutes if I can or should I still walk the whole 30 minutes? What kind of strength training should I do and for how long? So much to know. Please Help. Thanks

I have always believed that it is best to eat small meals and snacks every two to three hours to stay healthy. My usual meal will consist of 3 oz lean protein, a cup of carbs and vegetables. I also have a wide variety of snacks that I like to eat that are listed on my buzz blog in my sources section.
