WAG Cooking Show: Environment Overhaul

Youtube Video

To increase your chances of successful (and less stressful) dieting, your pantry and overall environment may need a cleanse! Watch as elite CrossFit athletes Christian Lucero and Cody Anderson, join Catalyst Athletics’ coach Aimee Everett, to share temptation-savers and tricks to help you succeed. Below is an overview of their tips.

Tip 1: Invest in good tupperware.

  • Glass is a nice, sturdy option that’s microwave and oven friendly, adding an extra level of convenience.
  • Plastic tupperware can be reusable, but is also a great option for traveling. Aimee likes bringing shredded rotisserie chicken with them when they’re on the road.

Tip 2: Always have readily available, good protein choices in your refrigerator.

  • Some of their favorites:
    • Trader Joe’s Grilled Chicken Strips
    • Smoked boneless ham steak
    • 99% fat free ground turkey breast
    • Egg whites
    • Greek yogurt

Tip 3: Have a scale handy.

  • Be sure your scale is one that you can zero out, it’ll save you so much time and energy in macro-tracking.

Tip 4: Manage your cravings.

  • Keep the “treat foods” a little hidden to save you from constant temptations. Out of sight, out of mind.
  • Portion out big bags into single-serving Ziplocs.

Tip 5: Have different plate sizes.

  • When you don’t have a ton of macros left, grab a smaller plate so you can trick your mind into thinking you’re eating a lot.
  • Have a variety of cups and spoons, so you always have the tools to easily measure when a certain food doesn’t have the weight listed.

Tip 6: Eat your carbs, don’t drink your carbs.

  • Grab some seltzer water and step away from the coke!
