How to Lose Weight without Lifting a Weight Part 2

  • Simple changes, maximum effect
  • Learn the real secrets of fitness

My main goal with RYPT was to create fitness that is sustainable, in moderation, enjoyable and also helps improve lives via education without taking short cuts!

Enlightening the actual truth about fitness is far more powerful than copying what other people do and hoping it works: understanding is the real deal breaker.

Lesson 2) Snacking

Snacking can make or break your nutritional routine. Having too many foods throughout the day that our client in sugars will have a detrimental affect on your nutritional plan. Accessibility and mood are huge factors when people chose their food.

Unfortunately, accessibility comes at a cost. Often these foods are higher in sugars and have little nutritional value. However, taking a few minutes out of your week to plan ahead will have an enormous effect on your health.

The right snacks at the right times will decrease your appetite for cravings and leave portion size judgement a lot easier.

The thing is, it doesn’t necessarily need to be “unhealthy” foods that will spike your blood sugar levels. Fruits are high in natural sugar and should be balanced as part of a nutritional plan.

When it comes to your blood sugar levels (blood glucose). The more unstable this becomes, the more you will crave sugary foods and make poor choices.

As you can imagine, the more sugary foods you eat (and also caffeinated drinks etc) the more that your energy will fluctuate.

Trying to keep everything consistent and well spaced throughout the day will help.

What is a healthy snack?

It comes down to balance.

Too much fruit or too many cereal bars will negatively affect your energy balance. Many people are dissuaded by nuts due to the high fat level, not realising that this is good fat (different from the fat found in fast food). However, moderation is still the best policy.

Plan out your nutrition in advance so that even on a busy day you will still eat. When it comes to fruit, a rainbow is best (ie the widest spectrum of foods). Don’t put all your eggs in one basket, expand your taste buds and enjoy variety, you will be rewarded.

Remember, RYPT is about sustainability, moderation and enjoyment! There are no fads or shortcuts, just facts.
