So Within 3 months I lost 25 lbs eating with this same approach.
Plus my social life took off!
The key things I discovered were:
I was getting in top shape and keeping my results.
I was able to avoid crash dieting so I felt incredible.
I didn't cut out any of the foods I loved so I could enjoy meals out with friends.
I didn't slash my calories so that I never felt like crap.
My plan was super simple:
Eat healthy 80% of the time.
Eat when I'm the most hungry.
Control portions with a simple method
And enjoy LIFE.
