She Ups Her Protein
"I try to have a lot of protein so eggs, smoked salmon and chicken are my go-tos," Wright once said. Spending big bucks on protein supplements? If they have added sugar, they're probably hurting, not enhancing, your ability to build lean muscle.) By reducing the impact of sugar, this plan will keep your muscles younger and stronger—protecting you from injury and helping you to burn fat faster and more efficiently. Getting your protein from natural sources, like Jess does, is best.
"I always add vegetables and I try to have juice as much as I can. I have a juicer and you just get so many nutrients from that." Eating whole veggies is even better for the fiber. "Eat more fiber" doesn't mean you're going to be nibbling on rabbit food. Fiber comes from a number of delicious sources: whole grains, vegetables, fruits, beans, and nuts. A plate of bean nachos, a cup of chili, a steak salad, some guacamole and chips are all high-fiber options. Just follow the simple recommendations in this plan to keep your fiber up and your sugar down.
She Eats a Balanced Diet
"I used to think that excluding food groups would help me reach my goal quicker, however I've learnt that you really do need to eat a balanced diet – a little bit of everything is totally okay and means you don't crave the naughtier things as much," she told Women's Health.
She Works Out
When she tried the Fi7ness home-workout program, she was working out 5 days a week. When you work out before a meal, you double your benefits; you not only cause your body to convert fat into sugar, but you create a big hole for all those delicious new calories to fall into, before they can be converted to fat. When she's not feeling motivated: "I would say to keep it short and sweet. When you can do the workouts at home you don't need to face anyone if you're feeling crap or have a hangover and you can go at your own pace. Or just take the dog for a walk in the fresh air, get outside and get your steps up. I really love walking, especially in the summer. We're always being told now to keep active and just move a bit more," she told Heat.
She Tries to Eat Well 80% of the Time
"With my schedule, it can be difficult to have a set food plan, but I know that eating right is half the battle when keeping fit so I try to eat well at least 80% of the time." The 80/20 rule is a good one. It has helped one group be among the healthiest in the world. "The Okinawans have been practicing the 80% rule for thousands of years, which is the practice of only eating until they're about 80% full. They hold space for the other 20%, acknowledging that they don't always need to fill it. To many Americans, this practice may sound strange and difficult to achieve. But to the community of Okinawa, this 20% difference is one of the ways they stay healthy and content," says our sister site Eat This, Not That!
