How to Take the Stress Out of Healthy Eating
We know a nutrition plan can be stressful. And with all of the misinformation out there, we’d venture to say it can be overwhelming.
But it doesn’t have to be!
Our jobs are to make it easy for you to reach your health and fitness goals. And we wouldn’t be doing our jobs if we didn’t give you a template to structure your meals from.
Our balanced plate template
So, here you go: Our balanced plate template.
You should be filling half of your plate with vegetables (the low carb, leafy green kind).
One quarter of your plate should be protein.
One quarter of your plate should be carbs (starchy vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes, etc.) see our List You Never Knew You Needed post for more examples of each macronutrient.
Added fat should be about the size of your thumb, and added on the side.
You should be eating this way 3-4 times a day, most (not all) of your food should be plant based, and you shouldn’t be getting seconds.
With the world being crazier than ever, it’s easy to lose control of your health. At Live Ready Fitness we empower you to #takebackcontrol of your health through fitness and nutrition coaching.
