 We need to bust myths because of all the noise and confusion of what is good or bad for you. Here are my top 3. 1. Energy drinks are less harmful than soda- A 16-ounce can of Red Bull or Monster delivers as much as 280 calories of pure sugar, which is about 80 calories more than you’d find in a 16-ounce cup of Pepsi. Wow.

 1. Pay attention to the descriptions- focus on food with descriptions such as steamed, broiled, or grilled. Obviously avoid anything deep fried or covered in sauce. 2. Drink water with your meal- Soda is empty calories. And as you know SUGAR IS THE ENEMY. 3. Hold the extras: be aware of dressings, spreads, cheese, and other condiments that are loaded with fat and calories.

 Eat your carbohydrates later in the evening , not first thing in the morning. We have all been told that eating our carbs early in the day because that is when we are most likely to "use" them rather store them. Otherwise called insulin sensitivity.

I hear people complain about not getting the results they desire from the gym. They work out like demons and yet, they don't feel like they are reaping the rewards for all their hard work. This prompts me to ask them "What is your diet like?", and that's usually when I get the "I know, I can eat better" or "It's been good lately" or "I eat good". That's when I become a little more curious and I ask them to walk me through a typical daily meal plan.

 I realize we are all going to eat and drink more than we should this weekend. Me included. We have all earnt some time off this weekend. However do this to help minimize the damage. 1. Start your day with a high-protein, high-fiber breakfast each morning. This will keep you full for a long time and just hopefully you big out less the rest of the day.

  So what is the best way to lose fat? Without a doubt, nothing tops the most basic approach: eat less calories, eat whole food sources, engage in resistance training (to build lean muscle and burn more calories), and throw in some HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) for good measure. Based on my experience and astute observation of my peers, nothing beats this strategy for effectiveness.

MYTH BUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Remember all that advice you received(maybe even some from me) that told you to eat your carbs during the day rather than at night to avoid weight gain. Bogus According to researchers who compared people who ate their carbs in the morning with those who ate them at night, the nighttime carb muncher's lost more body fat and experienced less hunger overall. Food for thought.
