Fat is NOT the dietary "demon" it was once believed to be. Truth be told, in general, there is no such thing as "evil" foods. I've personally never met a diabolical cupcake or a diet-sabotaging premeditating peanut.
In today's "health and fitness" universe, it seems as though there's a new strategy, fad, supplement, diet, etc. around every corner; that is guaranteed to get unbelievable results...and FAST.
Today we are going to ignore all of that. In general, 99% of the new trends should be ignored anyway (hint: because they're a waste of time and thought). Instead, we are going to focus on what really matters for long-term success.
The Ketogenic Diet...Is it good or bad? This specific question has been the most asked about topic since we began the Bite-Sized Breakdown series. There is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding surrounding the "Keto" approach. So, let us break it down (as simply as possible), trim the fat and get down to the lean cut facts.
It seems like you can't scroll down Facebook for more than two seconds on a Monday morning, without seeing someone mentioning the life/work/sanity/unicorn like magical benefits of coffee.
We could argue, that being so reliant upon something (outside of air, water, food and puppies) for your sole ability to function may be a little sketchy. But hey, I'm not here to be that guy...NO ONE likes "that guy".
As has been announced, we have teamed up with a local meal prep company and had them put together 3 meal prep options that are based around our desired macronutrients in our PFT 2.0 Nutrition and Accountability Plan.
We have been very watchful of our Fiber intake with our tracking. And knowing how difficult sometimes is to get all your fiber, PFT is now offering Quest bars. These bars have an average of 20 grams of protein and 14 grams of fiber and that's a great option to help keep your numbers up! These bars are $3 or 2 for $5!!
