OK, Here is the Secret..and the cool thing is this isn't super complicated. It is all about your metabolism and getting it tuned up!
If you have about 20-minutes, watch this video presentation that walks through how we get our clients amazing results with our 30-minute training sessions done just 4 times per week. This effective training partnered with healthy nutrition habits and a strong accountability and support culture is our secret.
There are 10 basic habits that we teach at South Shore Fit Body for nutrition.
These habits should guide your eating choices and help you make the right decisions no matter the situation you are in. You may already be following some of these habits. That is great! If you are, then continue to do so and read on a bit more about each of them.
You also may not be following any of the habits, and that is OK as well. We all have a starting point, and knowing that point is crucial to our success.
Each week, continue to add in one new habit until you have mastered all of them!
If it takes longer than one week to consistently apply a habit to your life, no worries! Simply try again next week.We want to focus on successes in this program.
Don’t worry about your mistakes; instead, focus on what you did well each week, and build on those successes so that you can continue to grow and learn about your nutrition.
Eat frequently: We recommend eating every 3-4 hours, but don’t sweat the details. At first, just try to get in consistent meals and one snack each day.
Eat a complete protein at every meal /snack.Try to get in at least 20-30g of protein at each meal. If you look on a food label, it will tell you exactly the amount per serving of protein. We will cover what is included on a list of complete proteins later.
Eat vegetables at every meal.This can be one of the tougher habits to master, but you can make it easy on yourself by keeping easy veggie snacks around such as carrots, celery, and other quick to eat veggie sources
Only eat carbohydrate-rich foods after your workouts! Especially if your goal is fat loss, we want to restrict your carbohydrate consumption to within 1-2 hours post workout . This is great news because you don’t have to deprive yourself of carbs, but you have to earn them first in a workout!
Take Multi-vitamin and Omega-3 fish oil daily.
Eat healthy fats daily. Fats are not the bad guys! You should try to get 1/3 of your fat intake each day from each of the types listed above. If you have a carbohydrate-based meal after training, try to limit your fats in this meal if possible.
Drink WaterDrink ½ your bodyweight in ounces of water every day. Being dehydrated takes away from your training performance and leads to decreased results. Dehydration causes fatigue and increases your cortisol levels
Eat Whole FoodsMost of your dietary intake should come from whole foods. There are a few times where supplement drinks and shakes are useful. But most of the time, you’ll do best with whole, largely unprocessed foods.
Drink a Shake Within 1 Hour of Finishing Your Workout To maximize the effects of your training, do NOT skip this step. You must replenish your body immediately after training with quick releasing carbs and fats to ensure optimal recovery, that’s why a shake is best.
Keep a Journal of What You are Eating.
