After a tough strength-training session like this bodyweight workout, protein is necessary to help your body recover. And that protein-packed meal needs to come together quickly, before your hunger overwhelms you. This delicious panko-crusted fish dinner takes less than 20 minutes from prep to plating, but the best part is one serving offers more than 36 grams of protein, which can help the body burn more fat!
After a busy day, you rush home, starving and ready to eat whatever you can find in your kitchen. You snack a bit from the fridge, then move to the cupboards, trying to find something that will help stave off hunger until dinner.
If this sounds familiar, it’s time to make meals a mindful moment. Eating while distracted is a surefire way to eat more than you intended, since you’re not paying attention to whether or not you’re full. And if you’re constantly grazing, you might not remember to track those calories you’re casually consuming - another mistake that can sabotage weight loss. Eating in front of the TV can also be too distracting, so whether you’re snacking in front of the fridge or relaxing with dinner on the couch, take a look at your meal habits to see if they are a reason why you’re not seeing the scale budge. If they are, move your dinner to the dining room or kitchen table and be sure to pay attention to your body’s signals to stop when you’re full.

Congratulations are in order! Glee star Naya Rivera secretly wed actor Ryan Dorsey on Saturday in Mexico. The two have been spending plenty of time poolside since their nuptials, and it’s clear that Naya works hard for her tight and sculpted shape. Here’s how she does it!
She’s an indoor-cycling junkie: Naya is a regular at Cycle House LA and told Self, “I really like group classes. I love the energy feeding off of everybody else.” While some skeptics say that cycling can make women bulk up, Naya told Women’s Health that her body changed and became lean from the workout. Like anything, consistency is key; the actress attends classes at least twice a week.
She sticks to a clean diet: While an avid coffee drinker, Naya is a big fan of green juice a few times a week to keep her digestion in check - she even makes her own recipes! Beyond her healthy beverage habit, Naya keeps healthy snacks like hummus and guacamole at her reach and is also a big fan of protein-rich fish, especially tuna.
She’s not afraid to squat: Back in the day when Naya rocked her Cheerios uniform on Glee, her legs and backside were always on screen. To tone her lower body and stay confident in that skimpy uniform, squats became her go-to exercise. Work out like Naya and take our squat challenge at home!
