Eat More Calories
One of the common misconceptions when losing weight is that you have to drastically cut your food intake to see results. Iâ€™ve been there too. I would eat below 1000 calories a day, essentially throwing my body into starvation mode. I now know that if you eat more you can lose more. WHAT, NIKKI?! Yes…. Fuel your body with MORE food and you will lose more. Of course, you still need to be moving that booty to burn calories or youâ€™ll gain weight, but you definitely donâ€™t have to starve yourself to get results any more!
Fruits and Veggies by the Cup Full
No one ever got fat from eating a piece of fruit. I often tell people that even if youâ€™re at your caloric intake for the day and you get hungry, go for an apple or crunchy veggies. Your body LOVES fruits and veggies. It wants them! They are packed with natural sugars and fiber, are easy to break down, and are way healthier than grabbing a processed snack like a power bar. Most are low in calories which means it wonâ€™t make you pop buttons if you have some extra servings. At the end of the day, they are whole foods and whole foods are what you should be putting in your body. So here are my rules about eating your fruits and veggies.
