Just eat real food is the key idea of the Fit Apprentice program.
Not too earth shattering, but true nonetheless.
The more unprocessed your food is, the better chance you have that you will easily reach your ideal weight.
To keep it really simple, the Fit Apprentice can be described in just 3 words: Eat Real Food.
This is the big secret that you need to know.
It all comes down to the food that you choose.
You can walk into the supermarket and walk out with foods that will make you obese.
Or, you can come out with fuel for your body and mind.
In just 60 days, by August 19th of 2012, I dropped over 30 pounds.
Slow Weight Loss
Even losing 15 pounds in a month is relatively fast.
Some people might think that is is too slow.
What is the rush?
It took years to put on all the weight.
Give yourself some time to take it off.
Yes, I did work out as well, but I am sure that the real food I have been eating is the key.
What is real food?
Vegetables, Fruits, Nuts, Fish, Chicken, Eggs and sometimes Yogurt.
I am not a doctor or an expert nutritionist, I am just a person who has been struggling with these weight and depression for way too long.
It was time to do something different than I have ever done.
Ever since, I called the name of the program The Fit Apprentice™.
Because, while I am learning the essential habits and tools to lose weight and get fit.
I am grateful that I have gotten this far, 85 pounds of weight loss and 16 inches off my waist.
The purpose of this site is to share everything I have learned with you.
I was lucky enough that a friend of mine made sure to let me know I was a fat bastard.
Without him alerting me to that inconvenient truth, I would likely be the same weight or more.
Anyone who is over 40 or 50 knows that getting into shape does not get easier as we get older.
I never imagined that the core foundation of fitness is to just eat real food.
Just Eat Real Food Sample Menu
Here is a sample day's Menu:
Breakfast: 4 egg whites (sometimes a yolk, but I will be checking cholesterol soon, and let you know how it has or has not been affected), greens, onions, spinach, peppers made into an omelette.
Serve with Humus and Avocado on the side and some olives.
If you don't like eggs, have some cottage cheese and melon.
Or plain Chobani Yogurt with berries and some almonds.
Snack: cherries, blueberries or strawberries and some almonds or walnuts.
Sprinkle some raisins too if you are really hungry (which I doubt after a good hashi mashi breakfast!)
Lunch: Have a chicken soup or if you are vegetarian, maybe a black bean soup or a chicken salad or turkey salad. Try to overdose on greens as often as possible. Keep trying to eat more vegetables than you have ever done in your life, raw peppers, cucumbers, whatever to keep yourself going.
Snack: Have an apple or peach, whatever is juicy and in season.
Dinner: Sweet potato baked or boiled, wild salmon, broccoli or any other vegetables sautéed in olive oil.
So is that so tough?
If I, a former cookie monster, who thought he could not live without chocolate chip cookies every day can do it and enjoy it, I am sure most others can as well.
I am going to start giving you recipes, no worries, but in the meantime, that is pretty much all that there is to it.
Please let me know how it is working out for you!
Remember, just eat real food and watch the pounds melt away.
