Something is better than nothing, but nothing is not better than something. Some workout is better than no workout. 5 min of lifting heavy is better than not lifting at all. A 10 min walk is better than sitting all day. Veggies once a day is better than no veggies at all. Something is better than nothing, but nothing is not better than something.
We have to stick to proteins and nuts, which around this time of the year can be sparse, or not around at all. For now you’ll see plenty of candy, bad carbs like pastries, and more. If there is nothing healthy around, then be prepared, have your meals ready, and have those bad snacks in moderation.
Have you ever tried pop corn for a snack? You probably think it’s unhealthy. But in moderation, you will be fine. Moderation being 1/2-1 cup a day. Popcorn of course comes from corn which naturally spikes our blood sugar, but it’s high in fiber, so it allows it to get out of our bodies as well. So try a cup of popcorn next time you need a snack.
People always ask, “will my abs look like this” “will my body look like this” My answer is your body has a unique layout and structure and it will look to the best you’re laid out.
The season is getting good, it’s cool outside and its a great time to go for your runs!
When in doubt, hunger, go find some nuts. Brazil nuts, almonds, cashews, peanuts, pistachios, sunflower seeds, these are all good nuts to have to hold you over until your next meal. I would aim to get 10 grams of protein from nuts and that’ll give you a good 20-30 min hold over.
