They enjoy food and food is not the enemy as it often is for most women. So take a page from the book of the opposite gender and follow these tips on how you can lose weight by eating like a man!
1. Start Your Day with Protein
Start your day with lean protein to help you to boost your metabolism, aid in muscle recover and also help you to make more mindful food choices throughout the day. Most men eat more protein because this is what their body requires so follow in their example and up your protein to start the day! This choice will help to curb your appetite today!
2. Eat Throughout the Day
Stop worrying about skipping meals eating less and starving yourself to your next meal. Follow the opposite gender in eating throughout the day. Every notice your guy seems to be eating every hour? Most men eat mini meals throughout the day and this will boost your metabolic rate. So eat small healthy meals and your metabolic rate will thank you as you begin to burn more calories through the day!
3. Never Overindulge
Have you ever started to eat chocolate and felt like you could not stop? Almost like your appetite is on overdrive when it comes to sweets? Watch your male as he eats portion controlled and does not overindulge. He is happy with a small slice of pie and does not need multiple portions to make him satisfied. It is no wonder he is a lean, mean fighting machine! Now it is your turn to follow in his lead.
4. Do Not Eat Because of Emotions
We all have the time when stress gets a hold of us and as a result we find ourselves turning to food for comfort. But check out your partner as he stays in control of his life and never lets emotions control his appetite. If you look at food for nourishment and never mindlessly eat, you will not only lean down but you will learn just how to control your impulses!
5. Stop Stressing over Every Calorie
Each and every calorie is stressing you out because you feel like this is preventing you from losing weight. If you stress over these calories you find yourself hungrier. Stop the stress and start enjoying your meals. Meal time just be a time to relax to eat for your health. You probably never heard your man complaining of all the calories in a meal. Why? Because they usually do not count calories. So follow in their lead.
6. Enjoy Each Bite
Enjoy each and every bite as you slow down eating. People that eat quicker tend to eat more because they lose count of just how much they are eating. So take a deep breath and slow down. Enjoy food because this food will help your muscles recover from a workout, nourish your body and the right food will even boost your immunity!
7. Do Not Eat Diet Foods
Diet food is often filled with chemicals and artificial sweeteners. As a result, you may even find yourself hungrier after consuming a diet meal. So go for the food that you really want rather than the ugly step sister version of food. Seriously, think about how men just eat what they want and usually diet food is the last thing they are going for. Now follow this non diet approach and lean down barely trying!
So eat like a man, be the woman they you always wanted to be and add plenty of activity so you slim down and shape up. And live the life you deserve with lipstick, heels and your lean lovely waistline!
