EAT MORE IN THE MORNING AND LESS IN THE EVENING TO GET LEAN Since we are always on the go, it is easy to skip breakfast. By doing this, we become more hungry and tend to overcompensate for that hunger by eating later in the day. This is problematic, because as the day goes on, we tend to be less active, and that extra food is stored as fat. Eat a healthy breakfast with a good balance of protein, carbohydrates, and healthy, unsaturated fats. Try to eat less in the evening and be sure to cut down on carbohydrates as your activity level decreases later in the day.
Ann rehabilitated her back by working out three times a week 30 minutes each. Using easy, effective and back friendly strength training she gradually built her muscles to support her back. At the same time she noticed her knee issues improved - everything was starting to wake up and respond to her health efforts.
But what I love most about working with Ann is her positive, can-do attitude, even when she was in a lot of pain. She showed up and kept going and showed me how to work through tough times and keep going.
EAT SMALL, FREQUENT MEALS TO BURN FAT Eating 5-6 small meals a day every 2-3 hours boosts your metabolic rate. With and increased metabolic rate, your body will undergo more caloric expenditure! Starving your body isn't kind. Kindness to your body leads to health and happiness. Eat a lot - a lot of good small meals. Call me for a tour of the gym! I'd love to show you where we get all serious about being health in a fun and friendly way. You'll enjoy it, for sure! Doug McKinney, trainer and owner
Jerrud arrived at SomomaXFitness barely able to walk due to a serious knee surgery. Now he hikes with his family and trains three days a week on building his body/mind so he can continue to be a active father for his kids and wife.
I'd love to take the credit for his amazing results, but it really is all on him and his vision to live a healthy, happy life.
In Jerrud's case the kind thing to do for his body was to put on 15 lbs (of lean muscle, losing as much fat while doing so) and in the process he inspires me to be a better coach and makes me excited everyday about my work!
