Eating 5 – 6 small meals per day is the best and I mean the best way to loose fat as you are increasing your metabolism, regulating your blood sugar levels and are helping your body digest foods more effectively. You will also feel more satisfied through out the day and less bloated! Make sure you eat protein, complex carbohydrates, vegetables, a bit of fat in every meal and make sure you are consuming a least 2 liters of water per day as water is vital for flushing out toxins from your body while keeping you hydrated and your hunger in control.
This may sound odd that you need to eat more to weigh less and was something that took me a long time to get my head around. Once I started eating 5 – 6 times per day, after a week I started to feel less bloated and within a couple of weeks my fat % started to lower. Who couldn’t be happier with that?
If you are wanting to get the maximum benefits from your weight training then you should be 100% eating this way, as you are going to help fuel your body more effectively for recovery and your actual workouts. Gaining lean muscle is essential in burning fat and losing overall weight, and girls lifting weights will not make you bulking, instead will help you create a lean and toned body of your dreams!
You are also best to avoid foods high in fiber or heavy foods as these foods will cause bloating, gas and abdominal stress.
