Turkey avocado wrap+ a ❤ to ❤.
It's so important, especially after strength training to fill your body with protein and good carbs! I have been LOVING lifting weights again since I am now doing a 60 day program combining both Insanity Max30 (cardio interval training) and Hammer & Chisel (strength training).
So yes, I eat carbs. My favorites are whole wheat pita or Joseph's lavash bread, sweet potato, oats, quinoa, and obviously all veggies and whole fruits 😉
I promise you, if you negate an entire food group (like eliminating all carbs or all fats) you're just asking for a potential binge episode (this was my life for 2 years) and you're not giving your body the nutrients it actually needs to function at its best. Once I learned how to count colors not calories (thank you Beachbody portion container system) I learned that I don't have to live in deprivation to succeed with my wellness goals. It's about PORTION control and eating REAL food! It was mind blowing for me at the time and now I've maintained this lifestyle for over 3 years. It includes pizza, steak fries, but also clean meals. And guess what? You crave what you eat. So the more I ate real food, the more I craved real food and treat meals became (by choice) one meal a week because I didn't need them as often...why? I was SATISFIED! So if you're stuck, you don't have to be. Is it scary to let go at first? Yes. I cried in my husband's arms for an hour when I deleted the "my fitness pal" app afraid to lose control but it was the best decision I ever made (again for me...not relevant to everyone). If you're ready to experience freedom with your health, I'm just a message away.
Though I am a certified personal trainer through AFAA, I am not a nutritionist. Any food posts on this blog are simply related to my journey!
