Lean With Plants
The best foods for fat burning!! Plus a surprising game changer for consistency
Show Notes

What are the best weight loss foods? Let me tell you right now, it’s not apple juice and olive oil!!

In this episode we look at the 3 main elements in foods that influence a calorie deficit:

  1. Calorie density
  2. Satiety
  3. Fibre content

Using these 3 categories you can make any meal awesome for weight loss or at least improve it, and rather than focus on either perfection or giving up all the time, you’ll find the middle ground you can actually sustain.

When it comes to changing habits LONG term, think about what will you be able to do for the rest of your life? Then build on that.
