Completed another 10 day food challenge and it’s been the best thing for me, not because I lost weight but I have learned more about psychology and people than I ever thought I would. When I first put the challenge guidelines together I was looking primarily for a way to help people cut back on extra carbs, starches, and sugar to lose water weight and burn more body fat.
I myself appreciate a challenge every once in a while but when I propose to some people a challenge to eat more fruits & vegetables, more seeds, nuts, protein & seafood the look I get and barriers that I have to hurdle to convince them its a good thing, its a challenge within itself. One that I am welcome to and can’t wait to do again
Every end is a new beginning
My best month of total fat loss as a personal trainer was 212lbs/fat January of 2009
This month in June we may not hit more than -50lbs/fat for the whole month
I’m actually proud of that, most my clients have been on VACATION and having FUN!!!
check out today’s leg workout – we are using a 1:00/1:00 bell for our sets utilizing quads and calfs.
This workout repeated twice should burn over 500kcals in under 30mins if done at moderate pace
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?
my last supper tonight before the food challenge is my favorite mashed potatoes – with baked spicy chicken and asparagus
I will be using the “lose it” app and “food burner” app to track my calories
I’m weighing In at 161 and 13% body fat – my goal in 10 days is 155 and 8-10% body fat
We have 25 people signed in and ready to go – I am very excited to get the results – I will post them soon
Any suggestions or questions please let me know, the 10 day food challenge is a great place for anybody to help start burning body fat
WHAT HAPPENS TO A PERSON’S BODY WHEN THEY DRINK A COKE (injuryweightloss)
In The First 10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don’t immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down.
20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (There’s plenty of that at this particular moment)
40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.
45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.
>60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism. This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.
>60 Minutes: The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you’ll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water.
>60 minutes: As the rave inside of you dies down you’ll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You’ve also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in the Coke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build strong bones and teeth.
