Nutrition is the main ingredient if you want to truly lose weight, build muscle and burn off unwanted body fat. You cannot out train a bad diet, so no matter how many metabolic workouts, interval sprints, crossfit classes, Tough Mudders or hours of cardio that you do, if your diet sucks then you will NEVER reach your goals and will continue to get frustrated with your results! Knowing the right foods and how to cook them is a HUGE part of not only looking fantastic all year round but also feeling that way because your inner health is optimized. I’ve grown to love cooking for a couple of reasons. Some of my all time favorite recipes are from Dave and Karine’s Metabolic Cooking 2.0 and to help them celebrate their 50% off Sale this week I decided to cook their Chicken with Moroccan Seasoning and Quinoa recipe (on page 22 of the Chicken and Poultry Cookbook). Here’s something Angela and I made right out of Dave and Karine’s “Metabolic Cookbook 2.0″ — their super popular new fat burning cookbook. The Chicken with Moroccan Seasoning and Quinoa took us under 20 minutes to prepare and cook, and took me 2 minutes to eat. It is so good and tasty. Since we have started with cooking from this book, we can definitely see and feel the difference in our bodies. We are consistently sub 10% body fat throughout the year. Metabolic Thermo-Charge (of food) It stands for how many calories your body is going to burn just breaking down the nutrients each time you consume a certain food. For example protein tends to have a high Metabolic Thermo-Charge. For this reason, by having high-quality protein in your diet, you’ll naturally burn off more calories and move closer to your goal weight.
