How to Implement the Lectin Free Diet Plan Step-By-Step
Description: Sometimes its easier said than done, structure is key. Here you can
1) Plan Your Meals
Figure out what you are going to eat for the week, stick to a theme. If you are following make sure it meets your nutritional needs. Keep it healthy and be careful of excess oils, since many recipes call for oil. Make a grocery list based on the recipes you want to follow. Then buy all your food for the week.
3) Keep It Simple
Some meals can be simple and delicious, you don’t have to be a chef to cook simple healthy meals. Use spice blends, sauces, and condemns to add flavor to your meals.
2) Use Batch Cooking Techniques
Cook a lot of food at once, then store it in microwavable food containers. Cook your meat separately from your starch. This way you can control your proteins and carbs.
3) Adjust Your Macros To Meet Your Fitness Goals
If you want to build muscle and you are ok with a slight weight gain, boots your carbs. If you want to lose fat cut much of your carbs, and boost your fats and proteins. A more ketogenic diet will help to boost your fat burning and still heal to maintain muscle.
