Water, water and more water
A good frame of mind
Good, breathable and loose fitting workout clothes
Measure food uncooked, if possible. Portion size is the key!.
Drink a gallon of water everyday. Water is a fat burner.
Eat protein or carbohydrate. As your activity slows down towards the end of your day, your carbohydrate should come from fibrous sources. Keep food clean and not processed. If you can't kill it or it's not grown, do not eat it.
Eat small and frequent meals every 3 hours to keep your metabolism rate high. Do not skip meals.
The two most important times to eat are first thing in the morning within a half hour waking and 30 minutes after a workout, protein shakes are good for training.
Prepare your meals at home. No fruit after 4 pm, your body recognizes it as sugar. Do not consume more than 1500 mg of sodium a day. Remember artificial sweetners have dextrose, which is still sugar. It is not calorie free food, and it will metabolize to sugar.
Cardio should be done only in the fat burning zone. 220-age x 75-80%= target zone for fat burning. No more than 75mg of sugar per day.
Take a good multivitamin and minerals every morning, plus antioxidants.
Make sure you are resting. This is when you recover. If you do not, you will not achieve any results.
