While I have cleaned up my diet a lot, I still have room for change. I am trying to find a diet that can be good for someone who is working out daily. I workout 6 days a week and have been feeling burned out from it. I am not sure if it is related to my diet or not so I am hoping to sort that out. What is a good fitness diet to go along with an active workout plan?
Just reducing your daily carbs should make a difference if you are working out. It will force your body to use stored fat for energy. I know someone who just cut out pasta and bread and lost 20 pounds in 2 months, not even working out.
Simple cuts like mentioned is a good start in the right direction. Most people fail with diets because she change too much too soon and it either shocks the body or they can't stick to it, or both.
Avoid sugar drinks like soda and juice. Focus on drinking only water and unsweetened teas. You can drink coffee as well but limit this if you add creamer and sugar to it. Only have one cup a day. As for food, you want to eat more vegetables and fruit and less starches like bread, pasta, rice and potatoes.
You can try the slow carb diet. It gets a lot of praise online. It functions in a way for you to burn off excess fat without exercise so I would imagine that with exercise, you will reach your goals in no time.
