3 Fat Burning Diet Secrets

November 10, 2008

By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

I recently got stuck in an airport due a delayed flight. But I didn’t end up eating junk food. In fact, I have a SECRET that can help you avoid cheating on your diet.

First, you have to be prepared. In fact, here are my meals from that day. My brunch included an omelet with vegetables, some grilled fish & peppers, fruit (pineapple, raspberries, blueberries, watermelon), and a V8.

A late lunch included a grilled chicken salad (2 breasts), jimaca, salsa, black beans, avocado (I substituted the salsa for the dressing). NOTE: Lunch was eaten at a Mexican restaurant. I said “no thanks” to the chips and salsa. So there you go, proof that you can eat healthy when you eat out.

My snacks at the airport included raw cashews, red delicious apple, raw almonds, as well as a banana and more almonds later on my flight.

Without my preparation, I would have been outta luck, and stuck eating M&M’s (the peanut kind, of course) and greasy take out food at the airport. So what’s the secret? Accountability.

I’ve committed to telling the world about my diet and workouts, so I can’t set a bad example or break my promise to you by eating junk food.

I’m holding myself accountable to you. By doing this, I’m going to be more focused on eating healthier than ever, because I don’t want to have to report to YOU that I’m cheating on my diet.

I also need to eat well and research the best options so that I can pass along little insider nutrition tips to you, such as these tips.

1) Most people don’t know that the peanut butter they feed their kids (& themselves!) is filled with two of the nastiest ingredients in the world, and those are Trans fats (the “bad” kind of fat) and sugar. So you should choose Peanut Butter that contains JUST peanuts as the one and only ingredient.

2) My favorite canned food is Amy’s Organic Chili. I usually stick with Medium, but sometimes I go spicy.

3) I add a little of Mrs. Renfro’s Organic Salsa to almost every meal I eat. A little bit with my morning omelet, a little with my chili at lunch, and a little with my BBQ chicken at night.

By the way, you should follow my lead and start posting your daily diet and exercise somewhere for someone who is holding you accountable.

For many people, being ACCOUNTABLE to others is their #1 way to stay motivated and on-track with their diet and exercise program.

You see, I’m committing to you that I’m going to post all of my meals each day, showing you how to eat fast, nutritious foods even when you are traveling or really busy. Accountability is one of the major MOTIVATION SECRETS to success.
