To maximize your calories, stay full, and set up to have a great physique, this is an optimal plate set up for your meals.
🌶️🥦I always tell people "think vegetable first" when it comes to setting it up. You want half of the plate to be veggies. Every time you go out to eat or get ready to prepare food, it should be an AUTOMATIC consideration of what vegetable is going with this meal.
Half a plate of veggies by nature decreases the calorie density and yet increases the nutrient amount and fiber content which both lead to being fuller and healthier.
🍗🥜The next large portion should be protein. Most of your body is water and then next are proteins. While yes, they are much of the make up of your muscles, proteins make up the building blocks of the billions of reactions that make your body, alive. These also digest slowly, hence, increasing fullness.
🍠🍑Your next portion should be a plant carb (think sweet potato over while bread). Plant carbs are generally more filling, have more fiber, and help give you sustained energy vs having spikes.
Try making your next few meals this way and see how your body then responds!
