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.

Trainer Tuesday: Do you recommend I skip lunch when I know I have a BBQ later that night?

Posted: 07/07/2015

Consistency is 1st priority when it comes to your meal plan. So having meals around the same time of day is more helpful in your weight loss goals in the long run than counting calories. If you are 100% sure there will be no healthy options at the BBQ, then choose a lunch that is lower in calories, but still is loaded with nutrients.

Trainer Tuesday: How many meals or snacks do you eat per day?

Posted: 06/30/2015

I try to eat at least 3 meals a day and 3 snacks a day. On busy days it might be 2 meals and 4 snacks but I always try to make sure my snacks have 15 grams of protein and 100 to 200 calories on the busy days.

Food for Thought: What does dehydration really mean?

Posted: 06/25/2015

Water is essential to life and yet most of us are chronically dehydrated.

Trainer Tuesday: How do you feel about flavored water? Do you recommend adding anything?

Posted: 06/23/2015

​When it comes to flavored water, I'm in the middle. I think it's okay if it helps you drink more water, but if you uses that as a crutch and don't drink as much when it's not available then it's a downfall.
