This Nigerian food time table is excellent for weight loss.
Let me explain why.
The basic idea behind weight loss is to burn more energy than you eat over time.
Combined with regular exercise, this Nigerian food time table will help you do exactly that.
It is based on a way of eating that has been around since the days of Jesus (for real).
This Jesus-day way of eating encourages eating only twice a day instead of the standard 3 – 6 times.
I promise, it’s much easier than it sounds.
Besides, peep some of the benefits.
3 Amazing Benefits of this Nigerian Food Time Table
1. It is not a diet.
In other words, you don’t have to worry about “gaining the weight back” when your diet is over.
You can eat like this for the rest of your life.
In fact, many of us already eat this way without realizing it.
2. It is simple.
I love simplicity.
There is already so much to do throughout the day. It’s really nice to have a clear simple plan to follow and not have to think about food!
3. This Nigerian food time table takes your workouts into account.
Every fitness professional agrees on this point: exercise does not work unless the right foods are eaten.
Therefore, it will be quite strange to follow any food time table that does not account for if/how/when you workout.
This food time table does.
3 Keys to Success with this Nigerian Food Time Table
In order to fully enjoy all of these benefits, you’ll need to complete 3 important steps.
- Buy this cup (or any other 24oz cup).
- Fill with water and drink 3 times a day.
Once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and once in the evening. This will allow you to consistently drink your recommended daily intake of water with complete ease.
- Buy some green tea.
And drink a big cup of it in the mornings. This is my favorite weapon to control hunger and keep my appetite in check until my first meal of the day.
You will see much quicker results with your fitness and weight loss if you incorporate these 3 steps into your regular routine.
Now, if you want to take things even further and turbo charge your results, here are my favorite additional tips.
- When buying yoghurt, choose Greek yoghurt.
It is usually slightly more expensive than regular yoghurt but it is worth the price. Here are some of the amazing benefits of Greek yoghurt.
- Log all of your meals for 1 week.
This will help you understand your personal eating patterns and where you can adjust as needed. This is particularly important if you’re working out, eating clean, but not losing any weight.
- Eat more protein.
Traditionally, Nigerian meals are heavy on carbohydrates and fat but light on protein. While there is nothing wrong with fat and carbohydrates, protein is extremely important for long-term, efficient weight loss. So, the next time you’re at a wedding, collect more meat and less jollof rice 🙂
Now, onto the food!
