Has a friend, doctor or nutritional authority told you to…Cut your caloriesEat low fat foods andGraze all day (eat 6-7 meals)Well, I am here to tell you that that the diet you were told to eat for the last 50 years was WRONG and does NOTHING TO CONTROL YOUR HUNGER!! You did not fail, the diet failed you.
Being active is an essential part of living a healthy life and being a member of The Get Lean Club. No matter how active you are recovery could be as important as the activities that you do! It is something I take pretty seriously with my body and I want to touch on some old and new ways that can help you become your best self. For the most part foam rollers (myofascial release), nutrient timing, rest and good sleep hygiene will do the job when it comes to recovery. But if you are looking for alternative ways to recover faster and feel better. Here are 6 recovery
As we age, getting aches and pains can become a daily occurrence! Do you find this happening with your body? I have noticed this with my own body. I am a pretty active weight lifter and love to golf but I am noticing now that my main goal is to avoid pain/injury as much as possible. Because there is nothing worse than having to take weeks off from activities we love! So I am assuming most of you (members of The Get Lean Club) can relate with this?!? Well, I might have a solution that has nothing to do with getting shots, surgery or anything invasive.
How do I get Abs? As a fitness trainer/health coach, it’s the #1 question I get from my clients!! Most people think their abs will suddenly appear doing sit ups/crunches!! Not so much… How about doing cardio?! That won’t help much either. In a 6 month study, subjects did 50 minutes of cardiovascular exercise 5 days a week, and lost no more weight than those who dieted only. 1 In a 3 month study, women exercised at 78% of their max heart rate for 45 minutes, 5 days a week and lost no more weight than those who dieted alone! 2 Don’t get me
People often ask me – What do you eat? Instead of making a list of what I eat I try to keep it simple. So usually I respond, “I avoid anything with GLUE in it!?!” They usually look at me like I am crazy. 🙂 Well, if you think of how glue is made (below) you will see how many foods consist of the same ingredients. Mix one part flour with one part of water until you get a thick glue-like consistency. Add a bit more water if it’s too thick. Mix well with a spoon to get rid of all the lumps. 1 Sounds appetizing!!
