What you weigh is overrated

As a personal trainer I don’t care what you weigh – now if you have 50lbs of extra body fat you carry around by all means lets lose some weight

I believe body fat and your body type are more important to your physique and well-being than just your weight alone

I tell all my female clients to be @30% BF or below – male clients @20% BF  or below

Your weight, it fluctuates

Since Monday I’ve had a 5lb weight fluctuation and today I am down those 5lbs instead of up.  The best time to weigh is first thing in the morning after you use the bathroom before you get in the shower (jay-bird nekkad)

Typically people fluctuate 2-8lbs any given day, but when people start to be accountable for nutrition that variation will flow about 2-4lbs.

My favorite day to weigh is Monday, if your down on Monday then you will be down for the week, if your up 3lbs on Monday, then you will have work two or three days to get those few extra pounds off.

Most humans retain water if they eat sodium and carbs, if you eat less sodium and carbs you can quite possible store less water

Depending on your body type (endomorph, ectomorph, mesomorph) you could retain more or less water depending on what you eat for the day.

One of the biggest advantages of the 10 day food challenge is to establish good eating habits that you can reflect and narrow down your fluctuations.

I believe your diet is what you are, not what you do.

If you don’t know your fluctuation weigh 4x a week, you will find it

Frozen Dinners

I have talked about “pre-packaged meals” since 2001 and the first thing I do to help new clients lose body fat (endomorphs, mesomorphs) is to stop them eating these poor quality meals.

I’m so glad to hear mainstream media talking about this food subject and when I came across this pic I had to post it.

What would happen if you only ate fruits and vegetables for lunch over 10 days?
