I was introduced to the protein, carb and fat rule. I like how it’s working so far. The goal is to eat every three hours, keeping hunger at bay by following this simple rule. At every mini-meal eat:A carb the size of your fistA protein the size of your palmA fat the size of your thumbIt’s just that simple and yet not. Technically, a vegetable is a carb, but not all carb-vegetables are created equal. Be wise.This rule translates really well into most of my favorite meals.A sandwichBread= carbChicken breast= proteinMayo or avocado= fatYogurt parfaitYogurt=protein and fatGranola=carbChiliBeans and tomatoes=carbGround turkey=proteinDollop of sour cream= fatBreakfast BurritoEggs= proteinTortilla and salsa= carbCheese= fatI’m very excited about how easily that simple formula can be applied to everyday meal choices. Except for brownies. It doesn’t work for brownies…or pies. But that’s okay. I have a weekly two dessert allotment. Because brownies can’t be ignored.
