Advice: How to apply an effective meal combination throughout the day?

The most efficient meal combination for burning fat is the mix of a lean protein, a starchy carbohydrate, and a fibrous carbohydrate eaten together the same meal.

  • Protein: Eaten with every meal slows the digestion of the carbohydrates, resulting in steadier blood sugar and energy levels and a more moderate output of excess fat storing insulin without the ups and downs of eating carbohydrates by themselves.
  • Fiber: Eaten produce containing carbohydrates at every meal slows the digestion of the carbohydrates, resulting in a steadier blood sugar level and more moderate insulin output.
  • Eating protein at every meal enhances the thermogenic effect which helps to speed up your metabolic rate.
  • A meal consisting of only carbohydrate is less thermogenic than one containing a lean protein and a complex carbohydrate.
  • A meal or snack that’s high in fat without protein or sugar an fat is the least thermogenic of all, please avoid any type of juck food, specially doughnuts, pastries, potato chips, cake, sweets, etc.

The Cuban Cardio Shopping adive

  1. Eat before you head to the store: This will help prevent you from giving into sugary and fattening temptations at the supermarket.
  2. Reseach nutritional contents of a food before you buying it: Rather than simply throwing everything that looks good into your shopping cart, read the nutritional label of the item.
  3. Begin the shopping: Fill your basket or trolly with fresh fruits, vegetables, and lean meats. Remember that the inner aisles are filled with processed foods. Try to keep these choices to a minimum.
  4. Shop from the list and stick to it: If you go to the grocery section, get the best healthy option low calories, dont get confuse or you often choose foods that aren’t the healthiest, and you may end up forgetting those foods that are needed to prepare a well balance healthy meals for the rest of the week.
  5. Check the best options before date: Always make sure the foods that you get are fresh and not expire soon.
  6. Use leftovers: Instead of wasting foods that aren’t eaten, combine them with other foods to extend your meal choices throughout the week.
  7. Keep coupons:  Even though coupons seem to be more of a joke, they will actually save some money and lots, Keep them and don’t forget to bring them with you next shopping.

  10. Avoid the convenience foods: By preparing your own food you will find they are actually cheaper and healthier.

The Worst Fat Foods You Should Never Eat: Cookies, Deep Fried foods, Doughnuts, Fruit drinks, Hot dogs, Ice cream, Potato chips, Soda and Sugar sweetened beverages, Sugary breakfast cereals, White Bread,

The Best Foods You Should Eat: Oatmeal (or other whole grain cooked cereals such as barley, wheat, rye, etc) Sweet Potatoes (or yams), Brown Rice, 100% Whole Grain bread products, Vegetables, Fresh Fruit, Chicken or Turkey Breast, Egg Whites, Lean red meat (top round, extra lean sirloin), Fish,

Oatmeal: If I could only choose one source of complex, starchy carbohydrates for weight loss, this would be it! Oatmeal is the one carbohydrate food that virtually 100% of all athletes eat on a daily basis, Although it’s a starchy carbohydrate, oatmeal has a nice balance between carbs, protein and good fat. Half a cup contains 3 grams of fat, 27 grams of carbs and 5 grams of protein. The low glycemic index, combined with the presence of protein and fat makes oatmeal a very slowly released carb exactly what you’re looking for when you want to get lean. Make sure you choose the all natural oats, either old-fashioned oats (such as Quaker) or the quick oats. A good adive Stay away from the sweetened or flavored oatmeal packets. Oatmeal is delicious with natural (sugar free) apple sauce and cinnamon. For a complete meal, try a couple scoops of vanilla flavored protein powder in your oatmeal.

Sweet Potatoes and Yams: Right behind oatmeal, sweet potatoes are probably the second best starchy carbohydrate
Flavorful, all natural, low in calories and packed with nutrients and antioxidants like beta-carotene, it’s no wonder yams are a favorite carbohydrate among athletes and health-seekers alike. Combine a yam with a green veggie, a chicken breast, lean meat or fish, and you’ve got yourself a perfect fat burning, muscle toning, metabolism boosting meal.

Brown Rice: Brown rice is another staple food of athletes. White rice is the processed version of brown rice and has been stripped of much of its nutritional value. Stick with the slow-cooking brown rice. 100% Wholegrain Products. Your diet can and should contain a wide variety of bread products with one condition: They must be made from 100% whole grains and the label must say, 100% whole grain as the first ingredient. White bread and anything made out of white flour is not allowed.

Fresh Fruit: Whole fruits are a fantastic, healthy food suitable for nearly any fat loss program. Most fruits are low in calories, high in fiber and vitamins. Fruits like apples, peaches,grapefruits, and oranges, at only 60-80 calories a piece, are a great addition to your nutrition plan.

Chicken & Turkey Breast: Chicken and turkey are probably the number one most popular protein sources among athletes and fat loss seekers. Naturally your poultry should be boiled, grilled or roasted and not fried.
The skin should always be removed.

Green Fibrous Carbohydrates: Your number one choice for fat burning, green vegetables, also known as fibrous carbs, are packed with nutrients and contain hardly any calories (they have a low calorie density). It’s virtually impossible to overeat green vegetables. Eat them liberally and eat more of them late in the day. A diet of green vegetables combined with lean proteins is one of the best methods of getting lean as quickly as possible.

Eggs: Eggs are right up there with chicken breasts as one of the top three lean proteins of choice for losing fat and repairing muscle. Eggs are a super-high quality protein. We recommend 3 yolks for every six eggs you eat. Just crack them open, and separate the yolk from the white. There are hundreds of low calorie ways to make eggs, so just get creative. Omelets, scrambled, fried (in olive oil), over easy, sunnyside up, hard-boiled or any other way you like them.

Fish: Here is just a short list of fish to consider: salmon, tuna, haddock, mackerel, trout, snapper, sea bass, swordfish, orange roughy, sole, and halibut. As with other meats, eat your fish baked, grilled or boiled and avoid fatty, high calorie sauces and butter. Most fish are very low in fat and high in protein.

Lean Red Meat: Len meat helps muscles repair, it is high in protein, B-12, iron and creatin. The problem with most cuts of red meat is the high fat content. However, not all cuts of red meat are the same. If you carefully choose the leanest cuts possible and keep your portion sizes small, red meat can be a great addition to a fat burning guide. For example, a 6-8 oz serving of lean, trimmed top round steak has only 0.9 grams of fat, while a 6 oz of untrimmed porterhouse has 37 grams of fat, and the 18 oz porterhouse you’re often served in a steak house has over 100 grams of fat.

Cuban Cardio Advise to help you eat healthier when dining out: 

  • Do not order any junk food or fast food burgers, they are usually loaded with fat and very high in calories. Instead, Choose a grilled chicken or turkey breast sandwich.
  • Do not order cream soups. Instead choose clear, broth based soups with organic noodles or frech vegetables.
  • Do not used creamy dressing and other high fat toppings on salads.
  • Do not order traditional sweet desserts.

How to make the best healthy food choices when dinning out?

  • Order food described as grilled, poached, roasted, baked or steamed or vegetables steamed, lean meat grilled (not fried) chicken breasts and make sure the skin is removed,
  • Order Red pasta sauces instead of creamy white sauces, entrees containing chicken, fish, seafood, rice, potatoes, and fresh vegetables, Baked potatoes plain (no butter, no sour cream, no bacon bits). Green and tossed salads, whole wheat bread and bagels or bran muffins at breakfast instead of donuts, sweets or pastries.

The Cuban Cardio Nutrition advice when you dinning out:

  1. There is no need to avoid eating at restaurants just because you’re trying to lose weight.
  2. Construct meals of lean proteins and complex carbohydrates just as easily at a restaurant as you can in your own kitchen you just need to know what to ask for.
  3. You must carefully read menus, watch for danger items, learn how to make sensible selections, know how your food is prepared, and don’t be afraid to ask your waiter for exactly what you want and how you want it prepared.
  4. Pay very close attention to calories, the restaurant portions are often oversized and sweet, salt, butter, oils and sauces are frequently added high in calories, but you do not noticed.
  5. Make up your mind before you even set foot in the restaurant that you’re going to stick with your plan. Of course, you can eat occasionally, but there’s no excuse for completely blowing your diet plan just because you’re eating out.
  6. Nowadays almost most of the restaurants offer healthy options. Even the fast food restaurants now have salads, low calorie dressings, and grilled sandwiches.
