WHAT DO WE DO NOW?
Good question - I'm glad you asked!
You want to eat 3 basic groups of food each day. Complex carbs, lean protein, and healthy fats. For a breakdown of what is specifically in each category, check out the picture at the bottom of the blog. It's all in there for you - but remember - the lists are NOT comprehensive. They are just a sampling!
Complex carbs should equal 55% of your daily food intake.
- 35% (4 - 6 servings) should come from greens.
- 20% (2 - 4 servings) should come from starch.
Lean proteins should equal 27% (6 servings) of your daily food intake. Some of your complex carbs can even count as a lean protein (hello quinoa - pronounced KEEN-WAH)!
Healthy fats should equal 18% of your daily food intake.
