Eat Real Challenge Update
We’ve had a pretty good start to the challenge. We are almost a week in, so those of you having some bad withdrawals will hopefully start to feel better soon. A few things I’m seeing that could be improved:
– Read labels. The most important part is ingredients. If you don’t know what it is, don’t eat it. Watch out for hidden sugars. Read and make a decision!
– Too many protein shakes. Shakes aren’t real food. I’m allowing them post-workout, but don’t substitute them for a real meal.
– Overloading on bacon and nuts. Nuts are high in Omega 6, both nuts and bacon are high-calorie and fat and are easy to overdo. So, if you are looking to drop weight, moderate!
– On the flip side – EAT! This isn’t a starvation diet, a short-term fad, etc. Lead with protein, eat unlimited amounts of non-starchy vegetables and don’t forget the healthy fats.
ALSO…Body Fat Testing & Retesting is set for Monday, February 23. The sign-up sheet is in the lobby. (Retests are $35, first tests are $49. Make checks payable to BODY FAT TEST).
