Meal Prep and Plan Ahead
It may surprise you to hear Jade Jenny, head CrossFit coach and owner of Champlain Valley CrossFit, say that "reducing belly fat ultimately comes down to how you eat," rather than your workout routine. It's true: you can't exercise away a bad diet. Abs truly are made in the kitchen.
This means a healthy diet is essential to your weight-loss success. Instead of choosing (not-so-healthy) meals in the moment, planning out and prepping a week's worth of meals and snacks will help you stay on track.
Here are some incredibly helpful meal-prep hacks to help you lose weight, such as making freezer soup packs, prepping a week of Buddha bowls, or freezing cooked whole grains.
