Do you eat a small breakfast, like most Americans or do you eat the biggest meal of the day for breakfast like is recommended? I try to aim for 40 grams of protein and 30 - 40 grams of good carbs. My typical breakfast would be a bowl of oatmeal with two tablespoons of flax seed, one egg and two egg whites or 1 1/2 scoops of protein powder. I also have a piece of fruit and a dairy. Yes, it is filling, but I am fueling my body for the day and my workout soon to follow. The 2nd biggest meal is lunch. The smallest meal of my day is dinner which will include protein and vegetables only. Later, if I am hungry, I will have Greek yogurt of another protein shake. In addition, I eat 2 snacks spaced about 3 hours after each meal of about 200 calories.
I am a middle aged woman with 18% body fat and the inner age of a 14 year old. Let me coach you nutritionally. I have lost 40 pounds and kept it off for over 20 years.
How would you like to change the course of your life? You do NOT have to accept that since you are getting older, you will spend more time at the doctor's and spend more money on medicine!! This is what the medical community would have you believe because that belief keeps them in business. By making a few simple changes like getting moving and cleaning up your diet, you can live to a ripe old age. Our bodies are meant to heal themselves by good nutrition and staying active. Let me show you exactly how to take charge of your life again and empower you to become the healthy person you were always meant to be.
Staying fit doesn't have to break the bank. There are many ways to get personal attention and divide the costs. Have you ever considered small group training? A popular type of group coaching class at my gym is TRX training. Each session is limited to 6 participants and the coach plans the workout so you don't have to think. These classes are a fraction of the price of one on one training and clients see results plus have the accountability of the group as well as the coach. Check out trx training at your local facility. You won't be disappointed!!!
Summer time can be a real challenge for my clients. They get visitors and have their own vacations to take. Those that are successful have made the lifestyle change which tells them they are never "off" in regards to their health and fitness. They take healthy foods with them or purchase them when they arrive at their destination. They figure out where and when they can workout while they are gone. Some of these clients have even lost weight on vacation. In short, they are commited to their success wherever they are.
I hope you are making healthy choices for your body this summer. It is the only one you have. Say it, believe it, become the successful person you are inside!
