Instead of giving you a complicated menu that takes forward planning to follow, we've come up with an easy-to-use meal generator that lets you eat foods you actually like while still staying healthy. We've provided a range of foods to choose from: for each meal you eat pick two or three, making sure you include at least one source of protein and one piece of fruit or vegetables with each meal or snack. We've also highlighted foods you should avoid, which may not always be the ones you expect Eat little and often because six small meals spread throughout the day is better for fat loss than a couple of huge ones. Don’t worry about counting calories or grams of macronutrients. This isn't a diet -it's just a better way to think about eating.
Focus on protein
Protein will make you feel fuller for longer, so you'll be less tempted by snacks, and it'll also provide the nutrients needed to prepare damaged muscles. Protein actually takes the body more calories to digest than carbs, so it'll give your system a helpful fat-burning nudge.
Don't avoid fat
Ditch the idea that eating fat makes you fat- it simply isn't true. You need plenty of healthy monounsaturated fats, the kind you'll find in avocados and most nuts - in your diet. Saturated fats aren't as good for you but there's no need to avoid them entirely. The ones to skip are trans fats-but you'll only find these in processed foods, which the meal generator avoids.
Go heavy on veg
Feel free to pile your plate high with green vegetables such as broccoli, spinach or leafy greens-it's almost impossible to eat too many and they're full of important nutrients.
