We got into an interesting topic at a recent nutrition workshop at AB Fitness Center and wanted to share it with you.
The question asked was how to I still burn fat if I need to occasionally grab fast food due to work or time restrictions?
The first thing you need to understand is just because you eat at a “fast food” restaurant doesn’t mean you can’t stick to your diet. Weight loss always boils down to making sure you are eating less calories than your body burns.
With that said here’s a few tips to stay on track if you find yourself stuck at eating a fast food chain.
1. Skip the burger and fries at McDonalds or similar location: Go for grilled chicken option, hold the cheese and sauce. If you really want to save calories skip the bun or wrap.
2.Go protein and veggies only at chipotle: Skip the rice guac and cheese!
3. Come workout at AB Fitness Center: The best personal trainer on long island! (Highly recommended ;)
4. Don’t binge at any of these places. Just because they have it doesn’t mean you need to eat the apple pie too!
Most importantly remember exactly why you are doing this! Just because you hired a personal trainer (and he may be the best personal trainer) doesn’t mean you can eat whatever you want and still lose weight. That is a myth! If you want results you NEED to follow your diet in addition to working with a qualified personal trainer!
Enjoy and make your goals become a reality!
