Kinda boring to look at and the Potatoes were supposed to be potato salad but got pequito cooked longer. (Stupid cocktails). But overall good. Crispy chicken tenders, potato "mashed" salad, and marinated cucumber. #summermeals#cheatday#chicken#proteinandproduce
Tonight's dinner literally took 20 minutes to make. Try this #cauliflowerrice for a low-carb side:
Cauliflower, pulsed in a food processor until the consistency of rice (cook on stovetop in non-stick pan until softened, like the texture of rice)
With 1/2 T coconut oil, heat 2 green onions and 1 clove of garlic until softened (1-2 mins)
Add fresh dill, chopped and the zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
Add salt + pepper to taste
I paired it tonight with wild Sockeye salmon and roasted asparagus. Delicious! Low carb does NOT equal boring or not tasty. Get creative! I think I can do anything with cauliflower!
Chicken enchiladas is what's for dinner. Haven't made these in awhile and I'm missing Mexican food bad. So whipped these up. Topped with shredded Colby Jack cheese, Greek yogurt and a ton of lettuce and green onions because I like the crunch and freshness. Debating getting a cardio workout tonight or diving into my newest flavor of @halotopcreamery sea salt caramel ice cream... Maybe I'll do both!

It WAY too hot and humid outside to think about a hot dinner so BAS it is 🥗🙌
Components of a rockin #BAS :
🥒green things. Lots of green things. Here I have leftovers from the week...cukes, green pepper, arugula, radicchio, endive and sweet baby greens. 🍖protein. Pick one. It doesn't have to be fancy or expensive or paleo or whatever. This is canned tuna mixed with the most rockin hickory chipotle mustard on the planet (am I right @jennsho ?!)
🍒something fun. Fruit, crunchy things, spicy things. Craisins and crunchy crackers, thanks. 🥑fat. Avocado is my ALL time fav but nuts and seeds work perfectly. Unsalted sunflower seeds.
🌶flavor. A good dressing or balsamic vinegar. Tessamae's Honey Balsamic
Voila. BAS. Easy. Peasy. 👊💗,

The idea that you have to eat from a limited list of "approved/special/magical fat loss super foods" every day to get lean is absurd, and there are new studies (linked on our Facebook page) that show limiting your diet may actually work AGAINST your goals.
There is nothing magical about chicken breast, sweet potatoes or egg whites, despite what the bikini competitors and bros may tell you. Fat loss food is food that fills you up with the right amount of macro- and micro-nutrients to achieve hormonal balance AND allows you to get into a slight caloric deficit with as little effort as possible. The more you actually LIKE the way you eat, the more likely you are to keep doing it. (You know this.)
Fat Loss Foodies follow their individual templates - think: flexible blueprints for how much protein, carbs/fiber, and fat to eat at meals.
# 🥗Want kale today and collards tomorrow? COOL. Do that!
# 🥞Does the thought of eating another egg send you reeling? Then have protein oats or protein pancakes for breakfast instead.
# 🍗Feeling like pork tenderloin instead of chicken breast? Or maybe grilled flank steak? Yes please!
# 🍠Want brown rice or lentils instead of sweet potatoes today? That's fine!
# 🥑OD'd on too much avocado? YOU CRAZY GET OUT OF HERE. 😜😳😱But seriously, then get your healthy fats fix with salmon or almond butter.
Instead of "what am I allowed to eat?" Fat Loss Foodies ask: "What's in season, what sounds good to me today, and what gets me excited about fueling this body?" #
That's what you should eat.
I won't even bother with a filter because WHY?!?! Arugula, radicchio, sweet baby greens, the most tender and delicious pork loin from my fellow FLF @theonlynyreeyouknow, grilled peppers, yellow squash, cukes, tomatoes, Tessamae's zesty ranch and a generous sprinkle of lime zest.
Pretty sure this BAS would rock anyone's tastebuds. @fatloss_foodies we don't believe in boring salads. Salads inspire our creative sides and more importantly, keep us full for hours so we can slay our goals and cruise into the afternoon with HEC fully in check.
Share your favorite salad below, tag us with your BAS, or give us some ingredients you love to use so we can give you even more ideas for how to eat for Fat Loss!
Want a female to talk to about Burn? 🤔
This is Lesa Collins @lesa.collins and she has been at Burn for over 2 years. She works out religiously and has changed her diet to see GREAT results (she'll tell you all about them 😉).
If YOU need someone to talk to that shares your perspective then PLEASE reach out to her!
Take a minute to read her story and see if she can help you out!
A little over two years ago I joined Burn Boot Camp and it changed my life. I know everyone says that but it’s true. I began going 3 days a week, then 4, then 5 and now I can’t stand to miss any days and you can see me there, in a puddle of sweat, every single day the doors are open for business.
Working out at Burn Boot Camp has greatly impacted my fitness journey in so many ways. I have completed three half marathons and one FULL marathon under my time at Burn and these are goals I never thought were possible. A few weeks ago I got 5 pull-ups, unbroken…I think Billy was more excited than me when it happened – that’s what you get at Burn.
Now to the nutrition. I didn’t want to listen. Four months ago I decided I would give it a go and stop drinking a 32oz sweet tea as soon as I left my workout. I decided to stop the bad sugar habits and change my whole diet to eating produce and protein and it was then I discovered Billy may be on to something about not being able to out train your diet. That’s real. Eat better everyone. We work too hard to not see the best results!!
Being an FMA at Burn Denver is a privilege. As many of you know, I can talk FOREVER about how much I love Burn and how it’s still hard every day I go and how we all are in the struggle together. Please come up and ask me a question if you have any or if you just want to chat because I am a pro at chatting.
Honestly this goes for losing body fat in general-
💥HOW TO GET RID OF BELLY FAT💥
👍🏻Everyone can have belly fat, but all my middle agers out there, I am talking to you all specifically 😀😀
🦋 While there are so many of incredibly awesome things about being a middle ager, the increase in belly fat may not be one of them 😬
🌴As much as we would all love to be able to spot-reduce any area, not just the belly, the truth is, we can't. Our bodies just don't work that way 😐
🐵 Our bodies will dictate where it loses its fat.
🐿 So even knowing this, the formula for reducing belly fat is still a simple one. That does not mean it's EASY-it just means that the formula is simple and applies to people of ANY age:
✅ Get in a calorie deficit focusing on protein and veggies
✅ Strength train focusing on big compound movements -building lean muscle mass will turn you into a calorie burning machine!
✅ Add some cardio if you want. Cardio alone just won't do it for you, but adding it in to your strength training could be a winner winner chicken dinner!
✅ Keep going!! This is probably the most important thing and where most people go wrong. They don't see results fast enough and they quit, or try something else. Stay the course. Consistency over time will get you where you want to be 😊
🐶 So while we can't specifically dictate where our body loses its fat, what we CAN do is engage in the simple principles for overall fat loss. Stick with those, and the results will come 🙌🏻
🐶Now go kick Mother Nature in the ass🙌🏻🙌🏻
