Eat THIS to Lose Fat ...

When it comes to losing body fat, the key to success is in nutrition. 

It's a stumbling block for many. 

We all have our favorite foods that we love or crave, or that give us some temporary relief from stress. 

And you don't have to give up those foods. 

For those that have a goal to end the Holiday Fitness Challenge with less body fat, we need to eat foods that fill you up, keep your energy high throughout the day, and minimize your hunger/cravings.  We have to eat these foods 90% of the time. 

Over the coming 8 weeks, we want to put THESE types of foods into the body FIRST.  These are the "go-to" foods for fat loss because they do fill you up quickly, which drastically minimizes your overall calorie intake. 

That right there is the key to fat loss.  Keeping your body energized, through eating just enough food so that your body can then burn stored body fat.  Those foods are what we refer to as Fat Loss Foods. 

They aren't some weird bogus herb that only grows rampant in some far region of the world.  They are normal, everyday REAL foods that keep you going strong for all the stuff you do in life.

The simplest way to identify them is they score a 10 or lower using the Food Label Rule.  This rule makes sure you're getting sufficient fiber and protein, while not over-doing the carbs.  We gave you over 50 options of Fat Loss Foods to choose from yesterday, but you're not limited to those.  Use the label rule, and create any meals that you like. 

In a nutshell, Fat Loss foods are high in protein, water and fiber.  Those that eat these foods weight less than those that do not.  Those that eat these foods struggle far less than those that eat the typical American diet. 

I'm not saying that fat loss eating is always easy, but it doesn't have to be complicated either. 

Save or print this email, keep it close by, so you can refer to it regularly over the next 8 weeks. 

Your friend in fitness, Brian
