Karlyn is right on the money! I know it is confusing, but more calories gives your body the signal that you are going to be giving it the proper nutrition it needs on a regular basis, so it doesn't need to store up nutrients and fat. It took two months for my trainer to convince me to up my calories and increase my healthy monounsaturated fat. Once I did that the weight started falling off! Literally! I dropped 4.2 lbs. in one week! The secret is to make those extra calories very healthy nutrient dense foods. Lean proteins (chicken, fish, lean pork, nuts, beans). Complex Carbohydrates (green veggies, potatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli, mushrooms, etc). Low fat dairy (cottage cheese, low fat plain yogurt, skim milk). Let me know can I help you.
Be Brave, Be Bold, Be Fierce and Be Fabulous!
Be the kind of woman you are inspired by!
This is my day, my hour, my minute, my time is here, now!
