Race weight Rule #2

maccafatRule 2.  Reduce refined sugars.  The refining process of sugar leaves a product that is devoid of any nutritional elements such as vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fiber.  So basically, it does nothing beneficial except satisfy a sweet tooth.  Try natural sources of sugar if having cravings.  My favorites: baby carrots, grapes, apple slices, clementines, figs, prunes.  But be careful and still monitor the calorie intake.  It helps to eat healthier but if losing weight is the goal, you still have to eat less.

Ok, I’m doing Ok on Rule#1 (reduce daily calories by 200-300).  Reducing the sugars will be difficult.  Give me a few days to get this in the routine before we go to rule #3
