Trainer Tuesday: How do you feel about fake meat products? Think I should include those as good protein sources?

Posted: 08/25/2015

I am not a fan of fake meat products for the simple reason that they are exactly what they say they are...fake! Fake meat products are just processed foods with all sorts of additives in them to make them taste good. If you have committed to eat vegetarian, whether it is for a day, a week, a month, or permanently, then stick to it.

Food for Thought: What does being a vegetarian actually mean?

Posted: 08/20/2015

Eating a vegetarian diet is foreign for a lot us but especially in the personal training world. What does being a vegetarian actually mean? Most of us have heard the word vegetarian and vegan but we have no idea what that actually means. There are many different levels of being vegetarian besides just not eating meat. Some do not eat any animal products at all. Some eat eggs or dairy or both. There are three main types of vegetarians.

Trainer Tuesday: What's your first thought when you hear the word vegetarian?

Posted: 08/18/2015

Oh boy! My first thought when I hear that word is that it's a polarizing topic. People tend to feel very strongly about being or not being a vegetarian. I have nothing wrong with people that choose to not eat meat, I just don't need a big profound reason as to why.

Trainer Tuesday: Would you ever give up meat for a day? Something like "meatless monday".

Posted: 08/11/2015

On a day that I do not eat meat I would be certain in increase my intake of these types of food in order to still get the proper amount of protein and amino acids that my body needs.

Trainer Tuesday: Have you ever tried vegetarian?

Posted: 08/04/2015

I have never tried eating vegetarian for any considerable amount of time. I have tried vegetarian meals at restaurants on occasion though and I was surprisingly impressed with the flavor of some dishes.  Definitely too difficult for me to give up eating and enjoying delicious meats.

Food for Thought: Why does my metabolism slow down as we age?

Posted: 08/02/2015

A major factor people tend not to consider is how we’re eating. How many calories do you consume in a day? How many meals per day are you having? When do you eat your last meal of the day? What time of day do you exercise? These have a lot more to do with weight loss than the year you were born or the “genetics” of your metabolism.

Trainer Tuesday: Why did my metabolism slow down after 40?

Posted: 07/28/2015

 When we are younger we tend to be more active and can get away with more leniency as far as your diet goes. This means the exercise needs to be ramped up even more in order to fight "father time."

Trainer Tuesday: I usually end up skipping dinner if I can't eat by 7:30pm. Is that a smart thing to do?

Posted: 07/21/2015

Now you obviously don't want to eat a meal that is high in calories or carbohydrates late at night but a 300-500 calorie snack consisting of fruits, vegetables, and lean meats is a great way to prevent our bodies from going into starvation mode and slowing down our metabolism. And always try and plan ahead.

Trainer Tuesday: I'm not hungry in the morning and usually skip breakfast. Do you recommend this? If not, what should I do?

Posted: 07/14/2015

I always recommend eating breakfast in the morning, especially if you're going to have an intense workout that day. I am like a bear coming out of hibernation every morning searching for food so I really cannot relate to people not being hungry in the morning.

Food for Thought: Is Meal Skipping Healthy?

Posted: 07/13/2015

We all live busy lives that do not always allow us to eat when and what we should. Our busy lives tend to make us skip meals throughout the day. Some may think this is a great way to lose weight because if we skip a meal then we are eating less calories. That makes sense as long as you do not binge eat during your next meal.
