GT Get Fit Tip: 5 ways to “Spring Clean” Your Body and Burn More Fat

Spring Clean this week and lose more body fat by trying these 5 (body) cleaning tips

If you’re looking for another BOOST or trick to start losing fat again here’s my Hi-5 to that

  1. Soda – clean out all “regular” sodas and start drinking less “diets” (aspartame)
  2. Cut Dairy and cheese consumption – good for calcium & protein but adds extra calories
  3. Don’t keep extra Juices – good for vitamins but adds extra sugar calories to your diet
  4. Frozen Foods (tv dinners, “health choice” meals) – easy to fix but pack extra sodium and carbs
  5. Sauces/dressings – awesome assortment of flavors out there but most are loaded with sugar and sodium to add taste

If you spring clean your fridge I am most certain your body, your mind and overall well-being will follow.  When you rid yourself of all those extra carbs, starches and sugars, your body will start to take shape by utilizing its natural fat stores from the winter for energy and you will see it all come together as the Summer months approach.  You have to have a balanced approach in your nutrition and physical activity focusing on both aspects because you can’t have too much of one without the other and expect great results.

Toys in Fast Food meals BANNED in Bowling Green – Yes or No?

Some health officials and fitness experts are wanting to make policy to ban restaurants from including toys in meals that have more than 485 kcals or 600 mg of sodium, and meals that have more than 35% of total kcals from Fat or 10% from added sugar.

They would also make restaurants include  low-fat milk and 100% fruit juice options instead of chocolate milk and sugary juices.

I personally am in favor of making healthy options available but I wouldn’t consider a “ban” instead they could eliminate unhealthy options with no toys in favor of the healthy choices with toys?
