Today marks the end of week two of our Five Week Fat-Loss Challenge. By the looks of it, everyone is off to a great start! It’s wonderful to see everyone helping each other by sharing recipes, ideas and places to shop!
Congratulations are in order for the most accountable for week one. Participants were given instructions to post what they eat, amount of fish oil consumed, and water intake each and every day of the challenge. Week One Most Accountable goes to……Bob Neubauer!! Congrats Bob and keep on posting! Bob will be enjoying some free Starbucks goodies (healthy goodies, I’m sure) as his prize. Week Two winner will be announced on Saturday. Week Two prize will be a tub of coconut oil! Keep on posting folks!
Three major questions that you have to ask when it comes to proper nutrition is: 1) What to eat? 2) When to eat? 3) How much to eat? Quality, Quantity and Timing. All three of these are very important. I would like to take a moment to address question number 3. Quantity, how much should you eat? From observing people’s posts, I can see that a few of you are a bit off in this area. Too much (even of a good thing) is still too much. Not enough food and the body will slow down your metabolism (survival mode). A slow metabolism is not something you want. Please make sure that you pay close attention to how much you’re eating. Eat slow and stop eating when you are satisfied.
One other thing that I would like to mention right now has to do with the three macro-nutrients that must be present at EVERY meal and snack. PROTEINS, CARBS, FATS. Some of you are missing the boat here. As an example, I will see someone post that they had eggs and a coffee for breakfast. Where is the carbs? Where is the fat? Before you eat, look at what you’ve got and ask yourself this question: Where are my proteins, carbs and fats? Got it?
Lastly, Please allow us to hear how things are going after completing week 2. Post your thoughts, questions, lessons learned, pointers in the comment section. I want to hear from you. Also, be aware that we will be announcing the next Nutrition Class information soon!
