Fitness Tip#174 - August 3, 2012

Eat well

When training with weights your body will burn up
more protein as these are the building blocks of muscle.
Six small protein rich meals a day is your goal.

This is where “whey protein” helps. If you have any
questions about it, just let me know.

Have an AWESOME weekend!

Keep your workouts short

Muscles respond better to short intense sessions,
so does your boredom threshold and your life


60 min is long enough for me. I get tired and loose
focus after that. Since I know this about myself, I am
wondering how I am going to make it through a ½
marathon next year, LOL. I love the 5k runs!

    You'll make it through the 1/2 just fine. Just like your other goals, train for it and work up to it gradually. And...great music on your iPOD.

Don’t go hungry

Starving yourself will just prompt the body to
slow down it’s metabolism as it thinks there’s
a famine so will store fat.

I preach this ALL the time! Your body needs a meal
or snack about every 3 hrs or so. Keeps the metabolism
cranked and prevents starvation mode.

    I've read this over and over throughout the years. I listened to a podcast a while back that said it was bunk. I've tried the eating every three hours and all it does for me is make me hungry every 3 hours or so. Sometimes when I'm not hungry I'm still eating because it's been 3 hours. The hardest part for me is to portion my calories correctly so that I'm not going way over and getting the proper nutrients with each "meal". I'm not sure which way is true.

Keep it hot

Did you know that simply changing the temperature of the
water you drink can speed up your metabolism and burn more calories? Drink hot water!

I have heard it the other way. Drink cold ice water so your metabolism will crank up to
bring your temperature back to normal.

Any opinions?

    I'm in the warm camp. I love hot tea no matter what the temp is outside. I can't stand cold water and actually prefer it to be room temp. I don't know about metabolism but it's just my preference. My husband thinks I'm insane when it's 90+ out and I am drinking a nice cup of hot green tea. I never said I was sane. emoticon

Cut down on sugar

Sugar causes insulin spikes and the sugar in your coffee or tea can
really add up overthe course of a day. Try green tea which is rich
in antioxidants and can help burn fat.
