Best Weight-Loss Plan for Apple-Shaped Women

Here are the basic nutritional guidelines for an apple shaped body: Favour all complex carbohydrates (friendly carbs): whole grains, dark breads, brown rice, quinoa, oats, all legumes, vegetables (except starchy ones, like potatoes, cooked carrots) and fruits (except very sweet ones: bananas, watermelon, grapes, pineapple) Eat moderately quality proteins: lean beef, lean skinless chicken & turkey, fish & seafood, beans, lentils, low-fat yogurt & cottage cheese, eggs Eat moderately healthy fats: nuts, avocado, flax seeds powder, dressings made with olive oil or flaxseed oil & fat-free yogurt; cook with healthy cooking oils. Stay away from ALL refined carbs, including white-flour products (e.g. white breads, muffins, pastries, cakes, cookies, crackers, etc.), ice cream, candy, fruit juices, sweet carbonated drinks - as all increase your insulin resistance, which triggers the fat-storage metabolism. Exercise Plan: Daily workouts - make sure you alternate strength (resistance) training AND at least 45 minutes of cardio (aerobic exercising) three times per week each, with a day off. For quicker weight loss and reducing of visceral fat, do cardio daily (walking is great). On the days when you do both types of workouts, do cardio after the strength training.

Rather than logging down every morsel in a food journal/diary, take a picture of it. That way you can visualize how much food you're truly consuming. Eat off small blue plates. Putting your food onto small plates will give off the appearance that you have more food on your plate than you actually do.
