Get Clean and Lean!

3 Day Refresh

I have gotten off track during the Easter holiday and those old bad habits of sugar cravings are starting to creep back in. I was doing the 3 Day Refresh once a month which helped keep things in check, but I haven’t done it since February and really need to get back on track. Click here to GET BACK ON TRACK

Be kind….I am a work in progress and these pictures don’t do justice to the renewed energy I have when I finish this.

What is the 3 Day Refresh?

In just three short days, Beachbody’s 3-Day Refresh is engineered to clean your body quickly while keeping you full, and giving you more energy than you’ve ever had before! Unlike any other “cleanse” you may have tried, 3 Day Refresh was created to make your body full so that you can easily go about your day, and even get your workouts in! I did PiYo everyday on the cleanse and felt AMAZING.

With three day refresh, you can expect to see a flatter belly, reduce your cravings for carbs, sugars, chocolates, and your clothes will fit better. This is perfect when you are heading on vacation and want to look your best a few days before hitting the beach so you can feel confident in your swimming suit. I can say that it has really helped me to feel lean and have flatter abs.

Watch THIS short video about food labels before you put that in your mouth!

Have you been confused by how to read food labels? Well, don’t feel bad. Lots of people are. There are lots of things to learn about when you look at nutrition labels, but this video has simple tips on how to get started eating a clean diet and filling your body with nutritious foods. Here is my oh-so-simple rule for adding food labels to the mix: If there is a long list of ingredients and you can’t read all of them, put it down and walk over to the produce aisle. There, you will find food items without nutrition labels. Just pick up that orange and give a big sigh of relief. I work hard at buying foods that have minimal ingredient lists for the simple reason that I don’t have time to figure out what lurks in processed food.

Guess what time it is……It’s time for another FREE clean eating challenge!!! We start on MONDAY. Send me a message if you want info and like this post.

One of the biggest reasons why people fail to exercise or make healthy meals is because they feel like they lack the time.

So instead of looking and feeling great, many of us “settle” for being overweight and unhealthy because we don’t have the time today to take care of our bodies.

But be careful: The time you might save today is causing not only excess weight gain, it could literally end up shortening your lifespan by YEARS!
In fact, just take a look at all of the very serious health problems linked to excess weight gain:
o Increased Risk for Heart Attack/Stroke
o Increased Risk for Coronary Artery Disease
o Increased Risk for Diabetes
o Constipation & Increased Gastrointestinal Problems
o Increased Risk for High Blood Pressure & Cholesterol
o Increased Risk for Sleep Apnea

Basically, if you don’t invest time today preparing healthy meals and exercising then not only will you gain weight and feel unhealthy, you may literally be robbing yourself of YEARS in the process!

Not only that, but the QUALITY of your life will be greatly diminished as you struggle with the stigma of being overweight and constantly struggle with health issues.
But I get it: How can you possibly invest time when your life is as hectic as it is?

The good news is that I have made it EASY and straight forward for you. The biggest obstacle most people face is their nutrition, and that is exactly what The 5 Day Clean Eating Challenge helps people overcome….nutrition obstacles.

Insulin…a wonderful little hormone or fat storing machine?

Most of you know that I am a complete nerd and have been hacking my body for years. That means that I have worked hard to figure out how “MY” body reacts to specific foods and have made healthy changes. We all respond differently to certain food groups so it’s important for you to do the same thing. But, lets start with the basic stuff.

Insulin is a wonderful little hormone that regulates how our body uses and stores glucose and fat. Our cells rely on it for energy and it has an important role in the body. If we don’t have enough or can’t respond to insulin then we become resistant or diabetic. But, all of us are on a mission to avoid that, right?

Insulin signals the liver, muscle and fat cells to take in glucose from the blood and use it for energy. If we have enough insulin on board from food then insulin signals the liver to take that extra glucose and store it as glycogen for future use. Did you know the liver can store up to 5% of it’s mass as glycogen? Once that capacity is full then insulin signals fat cells to take that extra glucose and store it in fat as triglycerides and make it harder for our body to breakdown fats.

Without insulin our cells cannot take glucose from the blood and use it for energy.

With insulin resistance our body is less able to take up glucose from the blood.

What you eat and drink play a key role in controlling this process. Anyone can be insulin resistant. Refined carbohydrates found in processed foods, white breads, bagels, pasta, sodas, sugary sweets, and many other things on the Standard American Diet (SAD) contribute to this. When we eat processed foods, our body requires more insulin to metabolize it and our cells become less responsive. As we get older we become less sensitive to these changes.

To help balance insulin, consider a whole foods diet with fresh vegetables, lean protein, healthy fats. Limit fruit to no more than 2 a day. Veggies are free foods, fruits aren’t. That apple is like an intravenous injection of fructose that takes a b-line to the liver telling your body to store fat!!

You CAN get enough healthy carbs from non-grain sources like vegetables.

Healthy fats are important to help insulin resistance. These fats include tuna, salmon, cold-water fish, eggs, avocado, grass-fed butter, and flaxseed.

Exercise will help insulin levels stay normal, maintain hormonal balance, and regulate metabolism.

Consider limiting your eating window to an 8 hour period. This will give your body time to look to fat stores for energy instead of continually suppling it with glucose from food. If you don’t eat your blood glucose levels will take a chill pill and then your insulin levels will decrease. There are tons of studies supporting this. Hit me up if you want the references. In order to burn body fat your insulin levels need to be very low. You can get there with short term fasting (eat in an 8 hour window and fast the other 16).

If you want to use your body fat as fuel you need to challenge the FDA and media with all this eat every 2 hours to maintain your metabolism garbage that is out there. Do a little test run yourself and see how you do.
