Is Eating Too Healthy Bad?

Is Eating Too Healthy Bad?

 

Eating healthy can lead to a huge lifestyle change.  Both Good and Bad.

When you spend time following individual’s fitness progress you tend to ask questions like “How are you?” “How are you feeling?” “How’s your progress?” “How have you been eating?” etc…  and simply because lack of sleep, high stress levels, insufficient water intake and improper diet like eating too healthy are huge factors to a Training Program.

Modifying a Training Program can alway be done if the situation is expressed but often times it’s personal and not expressed or shared. BMR is essential to living healthy. Proper Nutrition cannot be over expressed if you want healthy goals versus fast unsustainable ones. Making a lifestyle change should be a smooth transition from the previous to eating healthy. Small steps will get you there. Do some research prior to following a fad. Doctor’s recommendations are usually to eat lots of fruits and vegetables and less processed foods.

 

Eating organic is usually more expensive. Go with whatever works best. Ask your doctor for recommendations on healthy eating and choices.

Numbers on the Scale vs Reality – I Am Chicago Fit

Watching the numbers on the scale can cause aggrevating psychological issues. Fluctuating weight can be so frustrating and yes real frustrating. Fit Results are more accurate by measuring body fat percentage. Use it as a starting point and work your way from there.

Having resistance training in your fitness regimen will always cause the scale to fluctuate. Lean muscle is more dense than fat and will give a leaner appearance.

In past years I have attempted to help those with psychological issues caused by the numbers on the scale. Regardless that clothes are fitting looser and looking better than before. Sometimes they listen and other times they at some point get over that hump.

After reading the attached article it reminded me of what I have experienced with different people. The medical industry use a formula to figure out BMI which is totally wrong. Use your body fat percentage as a guide and relax a bit. Be proud of your results.

I Am Chicago Fit News (Working Link)

Time and again we hear stories from some and complaints from others. We all have gone through some type of fitness craze at some point or another. What really counts is consistency.

Once I experimented with a variety of things, my favorite has always been cross-training. Everyone does have their preferences however. High intensity and less poundage is what gave me the best results. As it pertains to endurance sports and/or leaning up. Everyone’s body is genetically different. one program does not fit all in relation to endurance sport races. Nevertheless, nobody was made for excessive poundage in which leads to issues in the near future.

Be sure to include resistance/strength training into your regimen as it will help reduce risk of injuries.

Live a healthy lifestyle, lead by example, making smart choices pre/post-workout. Always listen to your body and be sure to give your body enough rest and proper nutrition. An increase in training requires an increase in calories.

Attached is an interesting story that touches some good points. It’s imperative to be safe while on your fitness journey. Listen to your body when it asks for rest and nutrition. #iamchicagofit

Important Snacks made Easy to get Fit Results

Meal planning can be very hectic and time consuming.  Not enough nutrition is almost just as bad as bad nutrition. Here is an easy recipe that you can pre-cook. This can be a snack for the morning when we all seem to be in a hurry or otherwise.

The great thing about this snack is the contents that are included and better yet the nutrition that you want to add additional. While knowing what you are ingesting is a lot better than assuming you’re eating a “healthy snack” when in fact they usually pack a whole lot of sugar and sat. fats.

Cook the size that will make more sense for you and which will  last accordingly to avoid making bad, in a rush choices.

If you’re uncertain the amount of calories you should be intaking daily, figure out your BMR. It’s a formula requiring your personal information which gives you that amount. Be sure to intake enough protein regardless if you want to stay lean and/or gain muscle mass. The amino acids that need to be at hand every 3 hours will need to be a full count of each or they will serve for nothing. Stay on track  of your fitness goals for Fit Results.

Make sure you have all your amino acids when your body needs them. You can find great products in the Nutrition Tab “Advocare products”  check out “Spark” which can be your coffee replacement. It contains caffeine, amino acids and vitamins. “Catalyst” which are the amino acids.

Coming across this article I thought it can really help and had to share it with you.

Are any of these healthy foods something you have on your meal prep or planning?

What kind of diet do you have to maximize results after each workout?

You need not only focus on an all out workout everyday of the week and post-workout meal eat everything in sight. That is all of our mistake at some point or another. “I worked out I can eat whatever I want to eat”. Working out will make you a bit more hungry however disciplining your self to your BMR caloric intake daily will maximize success. Remember amount you consume vs amount you expend.

Having the wine or beer that you truly enjoy does not mean you will not reach your goals. Just account those empty calories towards your daily overall caloric intake. These five healthy foods are something you might find useful to add as deemed appropriate.

Articles dealing with Food/Nutrition should be given some attention especially when you have serious and specific goals. When you keep an active lifestyle and make good choices unaware that they’re not as great is a problem. Healthy vs Processed Foods are disclosed herein and a must read.

I came across an article and found it to be something of great value. Reading nutrition labels on packages can be such a turn-off and may be a turning point from a “determined” to a “whatever” attitude. We know there’s good and better sources of protein, we select our intake with what fits our preference and goals.

Feedback from our “What Good Decisions Do You Make Outside Of Class” was a great motivating event since it gave an eye opener to others that it takes meal prepping to reach goals. Yes, that’s is right. Meal prepping your healthy macro-nutrient measured meals is great but time consuming. You are worth it!

Remain on a healthy diet and stay away from processed foods as much as possible. There will be times that you have a cheat meal to keep the edge off but get back on track. Stay active 3-5 times per week. Mix your routine up. Stay away from only Cardio sessions. Mix the strength training, HIIT sessions with some Cardio. Make your lean muscle work for you while you’re not working out and yet burning calories. Unlike cardio which helps burn only during the session.

When you figure out your BMR and calculate it according to your activity level it’s all planning thereafter. Take body fat percentage measurements every 4-6 weeks to figure any changes that are needed. If you are having trouble figuring your caloric intake feel free to ask us for help. We can figure it out together. Don’t get frustrated, it’s part of the journey. If living a healthy lifestyle, and being on a life changing journey was easy, 30 percent of the United States population would not be considered over-weight. Everybody would be doing it.
