I usually encourage everyone to use their FREE MEAL strategy on the weekends because this is an opportunity to spend time with family and loved ones over a meal without worrying about diet, calories, macros, and eating off of plan. Food is so much more than nutritional sustenance and we've all spent the majority of our existence eating in a relaxed atmosphere with the most important people in our lives. One (or two) meal(s) off of plan will not disrupt your fat loss goals if the rest of your week has been spot on with your program.
LISTEN TO YOUR TRAINER – Sometimes people have the best intentions in hiring a coach BUT they battle and question the coach consistently – know the reasons why you hired a coach in the first place and reflect on your ‘old ways’. Did your old ways work for you in the past?COMMUNICATION – Occasionally clients forget about this part and just want the next phase of workouts or nutrition. How can your coach know what the next phase is for you if the coach doesn’t know your stats or progress?
1. Fat takes more than four times the space as muscle. TRUE – muscle takes up less space so that’s why sometimes inches can come off but the scale doesn’t change.2. You can turn fat into muscle through training. FALSE – Body fat and muscle are two completely different tissues and have different structures and functions. One does not have the capability to turn into the other.
It may seem like everyone you know has tried a detox diet lately. Although regimens vary, these diets generally involve a juice fast lasting days or weeks and often include a “cleanse” with limited food and/or “detoxifying” supplements. Serving up a small allotment of calories can produce dramatic weight loss, which makes detoxing tempting to typical dieters.
Don’t be blind and see through the la-bull..
Hey everybody! All of you know that I am a preacher when it comes to clean, healthy eating. My question to all of you is: how much thought do you put into what you eat? Really, think about it.
An often asked question from clients is "Why can't I lose these last ____ pounds/inches?" The answer is not always the same due to variable factors that include age, gender, present lifestyle habits, chronic conditions, stress management, medication, etc., that can vastly alter the result of effective exercise and nutrition.
