Grill Plantain, no oil needed and they taste so good

Eating healthy is a key factor to weight loss. We all know that 80/20 rule  it goes the same  with fitness as well. 80 percent of the weight loss comes with what you eat. While 20 percent comes from  working out .   I don’t believe anyone needs to be on a diet. I say that because diets are short term satisfaction no one wants to be on a diet for the rest of their lives. Instead I believe in moderation, and the reason most people gain back  weight after weight loss is because they were on a diet plan, meaning they never fully understood how to regulate their own eating habits. 

Eating right is essential. I try to eat 5 meals a day. I start with breakfast, then I have a snack mostly a fruit, then I have lunch, after lunch another fruit before I have my dinner. Well eating 5 meals a day might sound easy, its not because we all have lives, we work, go to school, some are parents. It’s easy to say eat 5 meals, but its another things to follow that plan everyday. Some people meal prep their food for 3 to 5 days because it better to be prepared then to fail. Well I would want to say that is ideal, I can’t plan my food for 3 to 5 days simple because I can’t not that I don’t want to. So I wake up earlier to prepare my lunch and dinner especially when I am going to be at school all day. Especially since now I am only a full time graduate student, but when I was teaching I still had to prepare my breakfast, lunch and snack.

It’s not an easy road to start cooking healthy. My trainer and I have several recipes to you can try that are healthy and taste very well. Eating healthy does not mean eating bland, and dry. While my trainer is  a vegan, his meal plan is going to reflect what he eats. I am not a vegan, but I also don’t eat red meat. So my meal plan is going to include fish, turkey, and chicken.
