My husband Ryan is an Aussie by birth who emigrated to Ireland to play rugby, when he was young, hot and fit.
He’s still hot and fit… (but just not so young anymore lol’s)
Every other year we fly his parents over to Ireland to stay with us for 3-4 months.
My MIL is gorgeous. She is also one of my biggest fans. She is in her early 70s and is an avid runner and trains in the gym 4 times a week.
(When I compete on stage she’s in the front row, cheering me on.)
She loves being lean and is always trying to maintain her weight, usually by weighing herself daily (and you can imagine how that goes down in our house where we call the scale the “sad step”).
But there’s a problem.
She’s a serial snacker.
She eats too little at mealtimes which causes her to be hungry during the day.
This then causes here to snack between meals, eating calorifically dense but nutritionally light foods which scupper her “get lean” efforts and make her work harder.
Someone asked me recently on Instagram what I ate for a snack….
… and they were shocked when my answer was “I don’t snack”
I never snack between meals because I eat 5 meals per day. So by the time I’m hungry, it’s time to eat again.
And the food I eat is not only planned and prepped, but nutritious and delicious.
Yet “snacking” is probably one of the biggest things that is causing women to fall off the diet wagon and keeping them stuck in their fat loss efforts.
And it’s so damn hard to overcome…
… UNLESS you know the 4 strategies I teach you in this podcast episode.
In this episode, I teach you:
The reason why we snack (and what to do instead)
How a certain type of guilt is causing us to overeat between meals (and how to overcome it)
Exactly how I plan and track my food each day (including exactly what I eat)
What you CAN snack on that is packed with nutrition and low on calories (and actually makes you feel full)
And don’t forget that our competition to WIN an 18 Month Sculpt & Shred Program ends on November 5 (that’s next Tuesday!).
Love Kim xo
