There is nothing like stepping on the scale and seeing the first inklings of weight loss progress. One week in, one pound down. Two weeks in, three pounds lighter than when you started.
We live in a world where so many factors will influence our health and longevity. Unfortunately, a lot of these factors—like our family history and to extent our environment—are not under our direct control.
Everybody has their favorite barbecue food, and whether it's your mom's pasta salad or your uncle's flame-broiled hot dogs, there's nothing wrong with enjoying a little bit of everything. But if you're looking to offer something healthy for the picnic table, there's no shortage of delicious options to choose from.
Your workouts should be tough. Trying to figure out what to eat post-workout should be easy. However, your go-to wintertime snack might turn into a runny mess in your gym bag while you’re in the midst of your summertime sweatfest. With a little thought and very little time, you can create perfect summertime snacks that will give you the nutrition you need and keep the hungries at bay between meals.
Ideally, if you're trying to shed some weight, then you're eating enough food to support your activity level and help you lose body fat...which means if you're feeling super hungry in between meals, go ahead and eat something!
