2. A Balanced Diet is Crucial
Having a diet that consists of all the macronutrients i.e., carbohydrates, fat, and protein, is important for long-term and sustainable fat loss.
So, what does a balanced meal look like? Imagine a medium-sized plate you normally eat on. Half of that plate should be filled with vegetables (about 1 and ½ cups), a quarter should be filled with starches like rice, pasta, chickpeas, or bread, and the remaining quarter should be filled with a protein source like fish, poultry, eggs, tofu, or meat. Don’t forget a small serving of fat in the form of nuts, dressings, hummus, and oils.
