Incorporate Your Favorite Foods with Moderation & Exercise

Incorporate Your Favorite Foods with Moderation & Exercise

How many of you are tired of these plans/diets that you can't stick with long term? You do great initially and get results then reality sets in and you fall off the wagon and gain it back, and sometimes gain it back plus some? Let me just say you are NOT alone!

There are many programs out there that are very restrictive. "Don't eat this" and "You can't eat that." How realistic is this to maintain long term? Don't get me wrong, you just can't eat stuff you know is bad for you all of the time, but let’s face it, these foods/drinks, are yummy! And they are enjoyable to eat, on occasion! How much fun is living if you can't enjoy yourself if you choose to? 

Let me tell you a story...
The other day was my strength-training day. I hit the gym, did a five-minute warm-up, did an abdominal routine and hit the weights and lifted chest, triceps and legs. I had a hankering for a Radler! A Stiegl Radler. If you've never had one let me just say... it’s GOOD! It also has 44g of carbs! 44! So I planned ahead and allotted myself two Radlers and worked the rest of what I ate that day around them by keeping track of what I was eating. I was able to drink two cans within my macro (macro nutrient) percentages that day and got what I wanted (YUM) with the knowledge that I didn't go overboard and I can still lose fat and build muscle.  

So the moral of the story is, you can do it! You can still enjoy what you like to eat on occasion and STILL LOSE FAT!

I know it sounds too good to be true, but my clients will back me up on this. My clients in The FAST, ATTAINABLE TRANSFORMATION-FAT Loss program learn how to keep track of what they eat and this varies on the activity of the day. There are some days that are higher in carbohydrates and other days that are lower in carbohydrates. This is called carb-cycling. This allows us to occasionally treat ourselves by coordinating it so it works for us, and not against us.  

To build lean muscle, our muscles need glucose from carbohydrates. Therefore on strength training days, we eat more carbohydrates. On HIIT cardio days, we want to force our body to burn FAT for energy instead of glucose for energy... so we eat lower in carbs on cardio days. 

What makes the program different?
The FAST, ATTAINABLE TRANSFORMATION is a jump-start to a lifestyle change. This program targets FAT loss by utilizing carb-cycling, intermittent fasting and workouts that promote fat burn and lean muscle growth. My clients have awesome physical results, but more importantly, they regulate their hormones and improve their hunger and energy levels. This makes it easier to maintain this as a lifestyle change. A program that teaches you how to work smarter, not harder.
