Just Starting – Have You Started Yet?

Eating right is healthy – Eating healthy is right
Forget working out, forget doing crunches, or adding gruesome workouts to your already busy schedule.  The only thing you need to focus on is eating healthy and eating at the right times.  Use the ideology that “less is more.” The less you make yourself do on a daily basis, the easier it will be to stick with it.

Do the bare minimum in order to succeed in your weight loss program.  Don’t just create a routine of running 10 miles every day and lifting weights.  You won’t stick to it and probably will injure yourself.  Start with little tasks.  Find out more about just doing small, quick, daily tasks to reach your goals at www.daytodaylivefree.com
The good thing about eating healthy is that contrary to popular belief, “less is more” does not apply.  In fact, the more you eat, the more you will lose.  As long as you are eating the right foods, you can indulge yourself in mounds of food.
Standardize your eating and make it a routine.  Every time you crave something, add it to your list and go crazy on your “cheat day” –cheat day being once every 7-10 days.  Here is my standardized eating routine that I have Sunday through Friday, leaving Saturday for my cheat day.
I developed my food routine by combining aspects from Beachbody’s Insanity diet plan, P90x2, Tim Ferris’s Four Hour Body Slo-Carb plan, and by using old-fashioned bodybuilding diet plans.
Matt Sodoma’s Food Routine
  • 5:30am – 2 Egg Muffins (1.5 whole eggs, spinach, chopped onions, chopped green peppers, and ground-white meat that I precooked – chicken, turkey, etc.) – put ingredients in a muffin tin and bake for 25 minutes at 375F.
    • Multi-vitamin for active people *Beachbody Activit
  • 7:45 – after-work out protein shake
  • 9:30 – power salad – chopped chicken strips, spinach, romaine lettuce, carrots, onions, green peppers, cucumbers, broccoli, fat-free Balsamic Vinegar (15 cal / 2tsbp)
  • 1:00– Meat and microwavable frozen vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots)
  • 5:30 – Meat and microwavable frozen vegetables/power salad
    • Multi-vitamin for active people *Beachbody Activit
  • 8:00 – Protein Shake
  • 10:30 – bed
*Meat options – white fish, lean red meats, chicken breast, lean turkey, lean pork
*Other options – 1% cottage cheese (limited), Greek yogurt (limited)
“But Matt, eating the same foods over and over is not healthy” – wrong.  Compared to what you are doing now, it’s extremely healthy.  Eating like a pregnant mom of four with your sodium-filled, carb-loading, insulin spiking diet is what is not healthy.  Not to mention, if you stick to the routine you will gain muscle mass which helps burn stored fat.
Just remember, save the cravings and the bad foods for cheat day and that just doing anything is better than doing nothing.  It’s that simple and the best part is I eat all the time. 
Just start.
