You work SO HARD to see RESULTS that you are proud of! 💪 😍 It’s important that we don’t risk furthering our progress with the day-to-day foods that we eat. We all have a special treat we indulge in - whether it’s sweets around valentines day, delicious rolls at Christmas time, or comfort food during a stressful time - all of those foods will delay your goals if you don’t eat it in moderation! Like I always say, your best body comes down to 80% nutrition and 20% fitness🍓🌱 I want to share with you some foods that may slow down your results:
You’d be surprised how many drinks are disguised as nutritious! We might pick out a juice thinking it will detox the body, but pre-packaged drinks/smoothies bottle up some serious roadblocks. They do not provide the fiber your body craves and pump your system full of sugar. If you want to stay on the road to results, I recommend that you create your own smoothies at home. If you think you need some help to kick start your fitness journey - check out my 21 Day Summer Shred Challenge. It includes a Healthy Breakfast pack with smoothies that boost your metabolism.
Sometimes we don’t take the time to create a hearty meal, and this can lead to unhealthy, but convenient, food choices. Even if you work out, this is a recipe for slow results. Junk food is high in fat and processed carbohydrates, low in protein and fiber. All of this tricks your body into thinking it’s full, but your body is actually screaming for nutrients! Junk food is also slow to digest, so it will sit in your body longer and could lead to some serious gastrointestinal problems. When food is just sitting in your body, it is not giving your system the energy it needs to get results. It’s okay to grab something quick every once in a while when life is in a tizzy, but this habit will stop results if you do it regularly.
I know some chocolate bunny temptations hopped into your life recently! Yes- we can have them, but it’s easy to initiate those cravings. Then those cravings turn into your third handful of candy. Consuming refined sugars like this increases our insulin levels, tricking our bodies to believe that we have loads of energy, putting us on a sugar high - but we come down very fast. If you want to get energy to fuel your workout, you will have better luck eating an apple. That natural sugar will make you feel great and give you the energy to push through your workout! Want the products I use before and after every workout? The 21 Day Summer Shred Challenge provides a Nutritional Guide and products to get you on track!
Eat all the colors for a colorful life! When your plate mostly consists of white foods, that means you’re loading up on carbs that won’t fuel your body with the right nutrition. These kinds of carbs are called refined carbs- they are processed and strip the fiber from your food. Also, they tend to put your blood sugar on a roller coaster ride, which makes you crave more high-carb foods. Instead, it’s important to train your body to crave healthy carbs- like veggies, whole grains, potatoes, and beans.
Protein bars market themselves as if they are going to give you protein that’s going to build muscle. They can be tricky because they are not created equally. A lot of them are loaded with sugar- it’s like relying on a candy bar to expect results. IF you want an honest protein bar check out my protein bars. My bars try to focus more on the protein and less on the sugar, so you aren’t fooled again!
