healsdata's top tips

1.If you avoid eating anything white, you’ll be safe.
2.The most successful dieters, regardless of whether their goal is muscle gain or fat loss, eat the same few meals over and over again.
3.Almost all restaurants can give you a salad or vegetables in place of french fries or potatoes.
4.Vegetables are not calorically dense, so it is critical that you add legumes for caloric load.
5.Paradoxically, dramatically spiking caloric intake once per week increases fat loss by ensuring that your metabolic rate (thyroid function, etc.) doesn’t downregulate from extended caloric restriction.
6.Some athletes eat 6 to 8 times per day to break up caloric load and avoid fat gain. This is ridiculously inconvenient: Eat 4 times per day.
