7 habits of successful FFBs (Former Fat Bastards)

If you’re not currently eating in accordance with these seven habits (outlined below), be sure to begin doing so immediately:

    1) Eat every two to three hours, no matter what. You should eat between five and eight meals per day.

    2) Eat complete (containing all the essential amino acids) lean protein with each meal.

    3) Eat fruits and/or vegetables with each food meal.

    4) Ensure that most of your carbohydrate intake comes from fruits and vegetables. Exception: workout and post-workout drinks and meals.

    5) Ensure that 25 to 35% of your energy intake comes from fat, with your fat intake split equally between saturates (animal fat), monounsaturates (olive oil), and polyunsaturates (flax oil, salmon oil).

    6) Drink only non-calorie containing beverages, the best choices being water and green tea.

    7) Eat mostly whole foods (except workout and post-workout drinks).
