Rule #5 - AVOID sugar and Limit your complex carbs with your last two meals unless you are active at night!
Hidden sugar is the number one enemy for most “saddle bag” sufferers and is a major reason why many people fall short of reaching their health and fitness goals. Read your food labels carefully and try to avoid rich sauces and fatty dressings that contain large amounts of sugar as they can be disastrous when trying to control your blood sugar levels and manage your weight. Excess consumption of complex carbohydrates in the later part of the day unless you are training can also contribute to an energy surplus and if you are not careful can easily be stored by the body for later use. Portion control is paramount!
