Nic's Quick Fit Tip 101:

Now that you are working out and starting to see results, you realize that the FOOD is still calling your name! Well? Let's talk about calorie intake and burn. In order to lose weight effectively, I suggest eating 1100-1400 calories per day depending on your age, sex, activity level and weight loss goals. Physical activities should be medium to high intensity burning 400 to 750 calories per workout. You will start to see a change in your body after 3 to 4 weeks and you will be eating 4-5 small meals a day instead of the traditional 3 heavier meals. When you get the munchies, eat things like apples,  1/2 a cup of grapes, dry fruits and nuts to tie you over into your next meal. Good luck!
