Just a curious question, since I'm in zumba class, and I eat dinner afterwards, since if I eat before, especially 3+ hours I feel sick to my stomach.
Anyways, what foods should I have before and after?
Especially everyday/every week ;3
What makes up calories? Carbs protein and fat... So yeah it is the carbs protein and fat that makes you fat. Balance is the key, and typically, people eat more carbs than they do anything else, which is why I said stay away from them. And the 10xbw is the best you cAn do without being unhealthy because it is the lowest you can go without risking too much muscle loss. And saying the quality of protein and carbs is a small difference is ignorant. Why do you think bodybuilders love eggs and whey protein? Because they are of the highest quality proteins on the planet. That's like taking a double cheese burger from mcdonalds as a post workout meal, over a boneless chicken breast with whole wheat pasta, just because it really doesn't make a difference. (we all know what wed both rather eat because we workout, am I right?) Whole grain carbs provide far more nutrients than white carbs, and don't get stored as fat as easily as white carbs do.
Stay away from junk food and things high in carbs. People have a misconception that it's fat that gets you fat, when in reality it's the carbs that play the biggest role. I'm not saying go^ off on fats, but really focus on limiting carb intake. Stick to whole foods, nothing processed, and whole grain carbs. Keep protein high, things like chicken breast, beef, fish, nuts. I'm on a diet right now and I am seeing great results with skim milk, fish, chicken, and whole grain bagels and pasta. Mind you I workout every second day and do cardio 6 times a week. Multiply your body weight by 10 and that's how many calories you should have a day to lose weight. Stick to the kind of foods I listed and calories and watch the fat melt off :) don't be afraid to cheat on ur diet once in a while to, maybe once a week. Try and stick to mostly water also
It's not the carbs, fat, or protein that makes you fat. It's the calories that make you fat. Generally, a carb is a card, a fat is a fat, and a protein is a protein. Technical things like quality of proteins, fats, and carbs really only make a small difference. Complex carbs require more energy to digest so you'll burn more calories (hence why whole foods are better at losing weight), and red vs. white protein really only comes down to how you want your fats. Chickens have minimal fat, beef has higher amounts. The 10xBW method is very inaccurate at times because it only judges the "average" person, not someone who is very active.
Your stomach is getting upset because of the vise versa within your calorie range. Your burning calories and then putting them right back in. I would avoid anything fatning, like butter, chips, pizza, stuff like that. If your goal is to lose weight, i would go on a diet while doing zumba. LIke only eating fruits, vegetables, eggs, and some meats that arent high in fat. Like chicken without seasoning. So really, if burning calories is what your going for, i would stick to everything healthy to keep your calories low, and to keep that stomach upsetment away.
Yeah, I been attempting to avoid the cabs, since it does play a huge role intake. I don't crave junk foods, like candy, cookies, or chips like I used too and I rarely eat them. Like I used to eat and eat, but now I take a small portion of a meal and eat a snack like raisins or an apple.Perhaps crackers as well.
I'll take the advice you supported, hanks for also telling me the more importance of it all^^
