You Must Have A Healthy Foundation For Long Term Nutrition Success

You must have a healthy foundation for long term nutrition success!!  Many start a nutrition program with the wrong foundation from the beginning.  I challenge you to ask yourself the following.  1.  Can I maintain this “diet” restriction for more than 12 weeks?  2.  Can I afford to purchase meals, pills, supplements, or shakes to maintain my results?   Please check out my story below.

Now keep in mind my highest body weight was 204# with a body fat of 16# at my highest.  This body mass was incredible and felt bullet proof.  My strength was crazy but my stomach was out of control.  Even being a personal trainer I never felt comfortable taking my shirt off in public and with 3 small children constantly wanting to go to the pool I dreaded the moment.  In the sport that I loved so much (powerlifting) nobody really cares how lean or ripped you are.  Typically the strongest powerlifters are the guys with the big hard abdomens, huge barrel chests, and big arms.  The big hard stomach is really an advantage when it comes to squatting the big weight!  My gut was large for me but I could squat over 500#, bench press 400#, and deadlift over 600#, so i sacrificed my leanness for strength, maybe an excuse for laziness on the nutrition side?  My eating habits were 80% good and 20% bad! Now I considered bad (candy bar from gas station, once a week fast food, bread, and sometimes other starchy carbs).  Since I was super competitive I constantly looked for biggest and best supplement to give me the leading advantage.  I took so many supplements that you would have thought they were additional meals packed with pills and powders.  My supplement bill exceeded over $4,000+ a year!

Now looking back….was this a healthy feasible foundation?!? Now please keep in mind I am not anti supplement by any means….but 99.9% do not work.  If you are taking a supplement to mask a unhealthy habit…then you need to work on the improving your habits. 

 

Here are a few things to consider.

Infomercials are everywhere!!  How many times have you joined a weight loss program only falling short of getting results or regaining back everything you lost?  Are you tired of searching for a workout that will promise lasting results?  Do you hesitate starting a new fitness program because you might fail?  Don’t worry you are not alone.  Here are 8 factors to ask yourself when deciding on a fitness program.  I have listed the most common choices that people choose for their fitness program and how they size up.

 

  • Local Weight Loss Clinics
  • Supplements and Weight Loss Formulas
  • Exercising On Your Own

Now use the following list from below and see if they can offer all of these deciding factors.

 

  1. Firm Toned Muscles
  2. Increased Metabolism
  3. Constantly challenging you
  4. Fun and effective (not dreadful)
  5. Accountability
  6. Education for a lifetime
  7. Encouragement and Motivation
  8. GUARANTEED RESULTS FOR REAL PEOPLE

Now I will evaluate the common choices that people choose and see if they offer the 8 deciding factors.

  • Toned Firm Muscles (NO)
  • Increased Metabolism (NO WAY)
  • Constantly Challenging You (NO)
  • Fun and Effective ( Possibly)
  • Accountability (Occasionally)
  • Education For A Lifetime ( Possibly)
  • Encouragement and Motivation ( Depends)

  • Accountability (NO)
  • Education For A Lifetime  (Maybe)
  • Encouragement And Motivation (NO)
  • GUARANTEED RESULTS (NO)

There is no “secret” to long term fitness success.  Keep these 3 “B’s” in mind with choosing what is best for you.  The 3 “B’s” are  basic, balanced, and best choices.  Please stay clear of the “magic” potions and promises that are their for short term success.

 

Train smart and expect success

Don’t Skip The 3 B’s For Fitness Success

Don’t skip the 3 b’s for fitness success!!! To be honest if you are looking for real fast short term success in weight loss then you should follow a low carbohydrate nutrition plan. To be honest if you are looking for a major roller coaster of frustration and weight gain then you should follow a low carbohydrate nutrition plan. The carbohydrates does get a bad reputation and is feared by so many when they are trying to lose weight and/or reduced their body fat. To better understand why people lose weight so quickly on low carbohydrate can be very confusing but here is a simple explanation for ya.

The primary reason that quick fix low carb/no carb diets work for weight loss is that by eliminating an entire macro group overall caloric intake is greatly reduced. Extremely low carb diets may work in the short term to lose weight on the scale. The problem is much of that weight loss is going to be water, glycogen, and possibly muscle loss. Eliminating carbs is not something that is realistic long term and will usually backfire by a rapid weight gain after a return to normal eating. – Bryant Travis

Many people who follow a much more reasonable long term nutrition plan have less frustration in emotional eating, inconsistent water retention which causes frustration of the scale, and live a lifestyle outside of the gym with less stress about eating. Your long term fitness meal plan should contain the 3 b’s….basic food, balanced macro’s, and best choice of foods in each of the protein, carbohydrate, and fat categories.

If you need any assistance with planning a balanced long term fitness program that does NOT revolve around eliminating food groups, dangerous low calorie requirements, supplements, pills, frozen meals, or powders please do not hesitate to call or send me an email:)
