Weight loss diet guidelines!

I DONT BELIEVE IN DIETING. I don’t believe in the term “dieting” because it suggests that people need to stop eating in order to lose weight. I believe it is important to keep an eye on food intake- which is essentially the same idea as dieting, but people tend to go about it in the wrong way. 

There is NO reason to starve yourself in the hopes of becoming skinny (and quite frankly, starving yourself will make you sick, not help you lose weight in a healthy manner). 


I am a foodaholic so I’ve found an alternative to maintaining my weight while still keeping my plate full of goodies! 

I created an extension to my previous blog post “Healthy Breakfast Breakdown – Easy Planning”. Instead of focusing solely on breakfast, I created a list of meal and snack options for the entire day!

I chose these specific foods in order to create a balanced intake in all categories of food (fruits, veggies, grains, etc.). 


These guidelines are here to make it easy to pick and choose meals each day that you know are healthy and easy to make!

Try following along for a week and feel your body begin its transformation to a healthy and well nourished one!
