Reaching your goals doesn't have to be a miserable (and tasteless!) experience...  

 

Getting lean isn’t the be all or end all of health & fitness, but it’s a widely held goal, so we’re here to provide support! There’s a common misconception that losing body fat is a miserable process, involving a lot of bland, low-calorie food. But this doesn’t have to be the case! Eating plenty of greens is great, but you don’t need to be eating a plate of soggy, steamed greens or limp lettuce leaves for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

If you’re looking to lose body fat, you need to be in a calorie deficit – expending more calories from the daily activity than you consume. But being too strict isn’t sustainable in the long run. Eat smart and the food you consume will not only be delicious but will actually fuel your results. Here are some high-protein recipes to get you started. Some might contain greens, but we promise you’ll hardly even notice!:
