Consistency is 1st priority when it comes to your meal plan. So having meals around the same time of day is more helpful in your weight loss goals in the long run than counting calories. If you are 100% sure there will be no healthy options at the BBQ, then choose a lunch that is lower in calories, but still is loaded with nutrients.
I try to eat at least 3 meals a day and 3 snacks a day. On busy days it might be 2 meals and 4 snacks but I always try to make sure my snacks have 15 grams of protein and 100 to 200 calories on the busy days.
Water is essential to life and yet most of us are chronically dehydrated.
When it comes to flavored water, I'm in the middle. I think it's okay if it helps you drink more water, but if you uses that as a crutch and don't drink as much when it's not available then it's a downfall.
I definitely drink more water at the end of our workouts. I try to drink as much water as I can 45 minutes before a workout but that does not always happen.
I prefer room temp water because its easy to drink fast. Besides that I seem to drink more throughout the day if it is room temperature.
I usually drink 8 to 11 bottles of my Klean Kanteen which is 27 ounces. I know that may sound like a lot but here's the reason why. Number 1 is that I love water and you really can't drink too much water especially if you are an active person.
A great advantage to smoking is the fat free cooking process. Also protein seems to be the most smoked food of choice; therefore, individuals that eat smoked products tend to have a leaner protein intake. Don't forget the awesome taste that comes from smoking your favorite protein!
I love grilling and use all 3 methods, mostly depends on the time of year. Camp fire to me is always the best because it means I'm out in the woods or the country somewhere. Cooking on a camp fire can be a bit more challenging but the enjoyment of relaxing around a camp fire makes it worth it.
It's summer time and the best part of summer is grilling! Who doesn't love grilling?
