Every method out there to help you eat healthy serves a certain purpose. However, your approach to eating and fitness dictates which purposes you need to employ in the first place.
Methods for an "eat to live" person will be very different than those for a "live to eat" person. Similarly, if you struggle with cravings, your best approach likely won't work well for someone who struggles with feeling hungry all of the time.
Today I'd like to share with you 3 simple changes I have made in the kitchen.
Yes, you read the title right! I'm going to share with you my new fitness focus for November:
quick endurance circuit training
Let's break it down:
- QUICK: Only 30 minutes out of your day, 2 times per week
- ENDURANCE: These workouts boast high reps with moderate weight for muscle endurance and...
- CIRCUITS: Circuit training itself brings cardio into your weight workout so it will provide you with an endurance double-whammy
*BONUS: The constant movement of this workout and its engagement of large muscle groups can boost your anaerobic capacity, too! What's anaerobic? It is a certain process that your body uses during exercise for quick fast movements (example: 100 yard dash). Contrast this with aerobic exercise that is more like a 1-mile run.
The production and advertisement of low-fat food products has skyrocketed in the past few decades - likely due to the research that came out 40 years ago which supposedly linked fat to heart disease. New research has surfaced that challenges this long-held belief, revealing that fat has a "null" effect (not bad, not good) on heart disease risk.(1)
Another theme in "food media" these days is buying local, organic, and natural. These terms can carry many meanings which means they can be confusing, too. But with the resurfacing of the Paleo diet and its followers, fuel has been added to the proverbial fire. The premise is that eating foods that are minimally processed (if at all) is more beneficial for our bodies, avoiding the preservatives and other chemicals added to foods for shelf life and appearance that our body doesn't recognize.
I want to arm you with some knowledge about low fat foods, so when confronted with the aisles of options at the grocery store, you feel equipped to make the decision that is right for you.
