1. Put your fork down when you chew.
Or take a sip of water between each bite—eating slowly can boost levels of two hormones that make you feel fuller. You also will not be tempted to eat to fast and you will enjoy every bite.
2. Training before lunch or dinner.
Post workout of course! Your muscles that you will train hard today will soak up" extra nutrients - especially carbohydrates like a sponge. It more technical terms the enegry will be used and stored in your muscles, instead of you waistline. Also have lean protein has well.
Pairing lean protein will carbs after a training will is optimal fpr recovery.
HAVE A GREAT THURSDAY
Want to get lean? Protein will help you get there. My go to sources are
1. Eggs - Eat the whole egg. The yolk is actually the most nutrient
dense portion of the egg, providing a ton of vitamins and minerals. 6 grams per egg of muscle building protein.
2. Pork - The "other" white meat, just as lean as chicken when you get the right cut. Go with the Pork lion or boneless pork chops.
If your losing at losing weight, you need to eat more protein. If your looking at gaining some muscle, you need to eat more protein. A good guide is 1 gram per ound of body weight. So if your 210 pounds and want to lose 20 pounds, you will need 190 grams of protein per day. Here are 3 ways to get more into your diet.
( Hint when your body needs them the most)
Carbs are NOT evil in these 3 situations
1. MORNING- You have fasted all night(hopefully), so when you wake up there is more room 'in the tank" to store carbs. Good examples are Steel cut oatmeal and Yogurt.
Aside from the obvious need to keep your body hydrated before, during and after your kettlebell workout with water, it is important that you FUEL your body in order to maximize the benefits of your workout.BEFOREOne to Two Hours Before (if you’re up that early!)Carbs with a little bit of protein (keep it under 200 calories).
That is a question that I never gave much thought until my 17 year old son was diagnosed with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis, a rare blood disease, that was unheard of 50 years ago. Why? Well, I started investigating and what I found out was quite astonishing. First of all, toxins exist all around us. After WWII, they didn't really know what to do with all the chemical warfare, so it ended up in agriculture and industry which means the air we breathe is toxic.
During a recent visit (May 16th if my memory serves me correct) to the scale at the gym where I work, I jumped on it and it read 190 lbs. Ouch! That was a shock to me as I had not been trying to gain any weight nor had my workout routine warranted any weight gain. I made up in my mind that day that I had to change a few things in with my lifestyle. Here is what I've changed in the past week and a half that has me down to 180 lbs. and still counting (my goal weight is somewhere b/w 173-175 lbs.)!
