I’m a lover of white meat. Besides my favourite fish, chicken ranks a close second. But that’s where it all starts and ends where chicken is concerned. I simply don’t eat the skin.
 
Yes, you heard me correctly. Regardless of the preparation style, whether the chicken is steamed, grilled or fried, I remove the skin before eating it. The reason is simple as most of the saturated fat from chicken is found just underneath and attached to the skin.
 
For those of you who actually prepare your own meals, you can still maintain the moistness of the chicken by cooking it with the skin on, but remember to remove it before eating to avoid the fat.
 
Love your chicken but eat it the clean way!

Yes, I know the title of today's post is ironic. On one hand, I'm asking you to eat more...on the other hand, I'm asking you to eat less.
 
Don't get me wrong...Haha...
 
Eating a small meal every three hours and not missing your breakfast is the key to fat loss. Doing so keeps your metabolism humming along as your body performs the calorie-burning functions of digestion after each meal. Research shows that regular breakfast-eaters do a better job of maintaining a healthy weight than breakfast skippers. 
 
If you wait too long between meals, you cause your metabolism to slow down in order to compensate for the perceived state of starvation. Bingeing with a large meal thereafter to make up for the lack of breakfast tells your body to hold on to every calorie – making it hard for you to lose weight.

By feeding your body with smaller meals throughout the day, you deliver sustained energy so you don’t overeat, which is also important for fueling your workouts so you can work harder and possibly longer to burn more calories.

Snacking may sound counterintuitive when you want to lose weight, but it will stabilize blood sugar levels to help curb carvings, leaving you feeling full, never deprived. A good snack is one that provides vitamins, minerals and enough calories to fuel up and curb hunger so that you don’t binge later. But of course, it again boils down to what types of snacks you choose. I'm not advocating potato chips or muffins or doughnuts. I'm suggesting snacks in the form of fruits or unsalted nuts.

Remember this principle: eat more (meals) but eat less (portions) and you'll be on your way to your best body ever!
