Partial transcript:

On today’s FABulously Fit Friday we’re talking about nutrition for fat loss. Nutrition is the number one component for fat loss. You can exercise your butt off, but if you don’t have your nutrition in place, you’re not going to lose the fat like you’d like to. What I do before I go grocery shopping each week is, I plan out my meals for the entire week. Now, I really like to be kind of simple with my meals because I have a really busy lifestyle. I don’t have a whole lot of time to cook, so my meals tend to be pretty basic. I know what I need to eat from my FAB University meal planner, and I keep copies of that right on my refrigerator over here so that I always have it in front of me, just in case for some reason I haven’t cooked my meals, which happens, right? Because we all get busy with our lives, and I have all of my grams, and the quantity, and the serving sizes that I need right here, so that if for some reason I don’t have my meals made for the week, I can go ahead and cook it up, but it’s always right in front of me so I know exactly what I’m supposed to eat. So, as you can see, what I do is I print out a couple of days worth of meals because I like a little bit of variety in my diet, not a whole lot. I’m pretty okay with eating the same things day in and day out. But I do have two different meal plans that I print out, and then I make my grocery list from there, and I head off to the grocery store. So let’s go through each of the foods that I have here. I mean, this is pretty much what I would eat in a week. What you need are many complex carbohydrates. So that’s what you see in the back here. So I have my long grain brown rice, and I just keep this in a container. I buy it in bulk, really inexpensive. A great carbohydrate gives you a lot of energy. Lightly salted rice cakes. These are great for portability. You can take them anywhere, and you don’t have to heat them up, which is really nice. These are also wonderful for right after a workout if you need to get those carbohydrates into your system very quickly to help with the absorption of the protein. So I really like my lightly salted rice cakes. Here I have my Quaker Oats old-fashioned oats, and you really want the old-fashioned kind, so this is great–another complex carb. Because if you get the one-minute oats or the quick oats, as they’re called in some other brands, those are processed foods, not source foods. These are pretty much wholegrain, but when you get into those processed foods, with the one-minutes oats or quick oats, that digests very quickly into the body. So if you’re not running a marathon at the time that you’re eating them, your body’s likely to store them in fat, so stick to the old-fashioned oats. Other complex carbohydrates: I have lettuce, of course. You can eat as much of this stuff as you want to. I typically buy several heads of lettuce at a time because you can eat it unlimited. It won’t add a whole lot of calories to your diet. I have here celery, which I love celery. Just plain celery on its own, and frozen broccoli. Frozen broccoli is a wonderful complex carbohydrate. You can eat a whole bunch of this, bags and bags, and it’s not going to add a lot of calories. So a lot of vegetables in your diet is great for fat loss. And then one of my favorites is sweet potatoes. I absolutely love sweet potatoes. I would actually buy about seven of these a week and cook them up as part of my meal plan. These are a fantastic source of complex carbohydrates. Next, we always have to have healthy fats in our diet as well. Any diets that are extreme on one end or the other, maybe cutting out fats or cutting out carbohydrates, that’s just simply not good for overall nutrition, and it’s not good for fat loss. I love unsalted almonds, and as you can see here, I keep a container of these in my kitchen at all times. These are a great, healthy fat source.
