Maintaining a healthy diet is a question I get asked all the time. With all of the misinformation and lies regarding weight loss, it is hard to know what the truth is.
It seems like there is a new diet fad popping up on t.v. and magazine advertisements every week.
So I decided to put together an article with 7 tips of how to maintain a healthy diet even when you are traveling.
As I do realize it is not easy for everyone to prepare meals or eat at certain times of the day due to their schedules, this does not mean that fast food is your enemy. As a matter of fact, if you are able to make the right macronutrient choices when eating at fast food places, you will be just fine and actually have no problem achieving your fat loss goals!
Before I reveal to you some good options when eating at fast food locations or restaurants, always try to follow these basic principles:
Popular weight loss and fitness programs today neglect to talk about fibers. They are more concerned with telling you how many calories you should eat to lose weight, when in reality, eating the right macronutrients is way more important than counting calories.

Below is a list of 5 benefits about fibers and what they can do for you.
With so much emphasis being placed on what foods to eat and exercises to perform, a topic that does not get discussed very often is the one of food seasonings.

The best part about these foods is that they can be taken with you and do not require special attention such as heating or storing in a refrigerator.

Protein bars have been promoted highly in magazines for their great taste and excellent sources of protein, but in reality do they give you the benefits that you truly need?
Most protein bars typically have 20-30 grams of protein and are usually either low or moderately high in carbs ranging anywhere from 20 to 40 grams of carbs per bar. Most protein bars have glycerin in them which is most commonly known as sugar alcohols. Sugar alcohols are not really carbs. If you notice, many protein bar labels always show a net carb count. Net carbs are those that prompt the body to release insulin.
