Easiest way to help people’s diet

One big problem I see among clients is under-eating at breakfast and lunch, then getting home at night after work to overindulge or “blow their diet”

One of the easiest ways to help remedy this is eating early and eating often throughout the day, experiment a little to find something that works bc what you’re doing now may not be working!!

Try to eat more fruits & vegetables in the morning & protein at lunch, stay away from extra carbs, starch, sugars & processed foods at night before you go to bed.  Use a food diary tool like #myfitnesspal to log and track micronutrients

GT Get Fit Tip: Break the Fast (Breakfast)

Breakfast – break / fast

Essentially the word breakfast means break the fast from a night or about 8hrs of not eating and drinking.

If you have more fat stored on your body than you want and you skip breakfast regularly, read this:

Eating supper at 7pm and not eating lunch till 12pm is 17hrs WITHOUT food!!  That’s way to long to force your body without nutrition, a body that is malnourished will be starved.  When your body goes into starvation mode it will gear up to store body fat so anything you eat your body works hard to convert it to fat and stored somewhere (maybe your abs, hips, or thighs) for later use.

If you are trying to lose body fat and don’t break the fast from night, then you’re not getting the metabolism going for the day and you’re not going to burn as many calories as you need to make a difference.  You have to have energy or nutrition to burn fat and here is a list of 100 foods that add energy and productivity to your day.

I know you will find something you like, if not send me yours and I will add it to my list.

GT Get Fit Tip: Protein for Breakfast

Green Eggs and Ham

Green eggs and ham anyone?

Eating more protein for breakfast helps stave off bloating and water retention through out the day.  When people eat a lot carbohydrates your body absorbs water and makes your weight go up.

Carbs and starch are broken down easily and if you have a less physical demanding job then they converted to sugar, cholesterol and stored as fat.

Protein takes more energy to digest and you kick-start your metabolism in the mornings eating eggs, seeds & nuts, bacon, ham and sausage to name a few.  Having a revved up metabolism sorta like an internal furnace keeps you burning the carbs and fat you eat even when your not working out.  When you do hit the right type of workouts you will be burning fat off your body for energy and not the carbs you ate for breakfast.

If you have any good protein breakfast ideas please let me know – i’m hungry

GT Get Fit Tip: 5 bad habits that can keep you over weight

Packing around some extra pounds?

Here are 5 BAD habits that keep people from losing body fat:

1.  Eating to feel pleasure or comfort (u feel guilty/ugly after)

2.  Night snacks (average person eats 500 calories after supper)

3.  Buying too much food at the grocery ( don’t buy it, don’t bring it home, don’t eat it)

4.  Eat on impulse (don’t go eat just because your friend called or somebody brought cookies to the office)

5.  Living to eat NOT eating to live

Some bad habits are hard to break but the first phase of any weight loss program is becoming aware of what and why you eat.  Think of the big picture and making little changes along the way that will add up and lead you to a healthy fulfilling life.

These are just a few of the bad habits I encounter most
