How to Eat for Leanness

Read time: 1 minute

Want to get lean?

You do this by finding a way to eat the least amount of calories with the most amount of nutrients and the most amount of joy.

Like learning a new dance, it is challenging at first, but it will become easier, you’ll be in the groove, and it will be extremely rewarding.

Least Amount of Calories

It’s not about starvation, but about eating fewer times — especially those times when eating is just not meaningful: in the car, at the desk, in front of the computer, in front of the TV, on the run, etc.

Wait until you can sit down and then look at and taste your food. Maybe wait until you can sit down with a good friend for that meal, large or small.

Maximum Nutrients

Eat a large variety of vegetables. Eat your favorite meats, and the fats attached to them. Dress up your foods in all kinds of herbs and spices, and some sea salt.

Maximum Joy

Order that expensive dish of high quality food delivered with an artful presentation. Chances are the portion is sensible, so you can savor every last bite.

Then treat yourself to some fresh fruits and berries… and make sure they’re in season, as they explode with flavor and sweetness.

If fresh fruits or berries are not seasonal, then maybe — just maybe — go for that dark, rich specialty chocolate. You have to enjoy all that life offers.

Eat the least amount of calories with the most amount of nutrients and the most amount of joy. You can’t go wrong.

    Hey, great blog. I’ve been reading it for the past couple of days (not getting much done at work). I was curious on the topic of berries what your stance is on fresh vs. frozen. Frozen are a lot more practical for us, but I’m wondering if I’m giving up too much nutrition by eating them over fresh berries? Thanks
