When we help people create meal plans to drop body fat, one of the first steps is reducing starchy carbs.

Starchy carbs are things like bread, pasta, rice, potatoes etc.

We do NOT totally eliminate them, but we don't want them to DOMINATE the diet.

For fat loss,we try to limit starchy carbs to one serving a day.

Conventional thinking is, "carbs in the morning for energy", but in reality, if you are looking to burn fat, you want to ditch the morning carbs.

Most of our successful people stick to protein and fat for breakfast and eat their carbs later in the day, usually at dinner.

When I sit down with people and talk nutrition, dinner is almost always their healthiest meal; normally a protein, a vegetable and a carb

Lets not mess with that.

The less we change the better.

We start at Breakfast: Eat Protein & Fat, no carbs

Then we simplify lunch: a salad with protein and fat

Have some fruit and nuts in between meals if you get hungry.

So what does that actually look like?

What would I call a good day on the GFP DIET

Breakfast: Scrambled Eggs with Avocado

Lunch: Salad with Grilled Chicken and dressing

Snack: An apple with almond butter

Dinner: Steak, Spinach cooked in olive oil and a sweet potato

String a bunch of days like this together and fat will start melting away

Its simple, but not easy.

Don't over complicate your nutrition.

Stick to the basics, build good habits and good things will happen.

Have a great day!
