Ok everybody, we are nearing the end of week #2 of our #makeitorbreak it challenge! The next challenges will start in about 8 days! I gotta say, I have stuck to the make drinking water a habit challenge. Before this challenge, I never felt thirsty, now I do. I actually drink more than I need to on a couple days. I have noticed that the wrinkles that have been coming in are actually going away and my skin overall is much better! I'll take it! As far as breaking the habit of no calories after dinner, I have not been perfect.
I often encounter people who do not realize how important or life changing taking the correct supplements can be for their health. Many MD's will not encourage or suggest them because they were not trained on supplements in medical school. The fact is an MD is trained in Pharmacology. Hence, they prescibe medications to treat patients. Ahhh..now that makes sense. Patients trust the Doc, they go to the Doc and the Doc gives them medicine......
Fat…just what the heck good is it anyway? Well, there’s lots of good about it actually. Some fats are actually so good that you need them in your diet (think Omega-3 fats!) So, let’s get a run-down on what is so good about this macronutrient.
Have you ever had a day that you just satisfied all your cravings and binge ate foods that you knew deep down were not good for you to be eating? I think it’s safe to say most people have. It’s the feeling after you indulge that is important to be aware of. The lethargic feeling that eventually leads to your body telling you you’re still hungry shortly after.
Find yourself stuck in a rut continuously training but not seeing results? Have you thought about changing your Eating habits or diet? In order to achieve the results you want, you not only have to exercise, but adapt a healthy diet as well. It is in fact true that 2/3 of people who go on a diet gain more weight after their diet than before they started. Thus it is important that we adapt a healthy eating as a lifestyle change, not a quick fix!
