6 Tips To Do To When a Food Craving Comes On

Cravings suck! They can rob us our energy (hello blood sugar spike & crash), and ruin our waistlines.

If you find you get cravings I want you to try these 6  tried & true tips to avoid a craving.

Drink water. Quite often we dehydrated and need water, not hungry and need a package of Twizzlers’.

Quit sugar for 2 days. Go cold turkey to help rewire your brain.

Have healthy snacks available to ya. Think low fat Greek yogurt with some mashed up berries, an apple and almond butter, red pepper, broccoli and hummus, hard boiled egg and some cheese. Have them prepped and ready to go & you’ll eat ‘em.

Plan & prep for the week ahead.

Set your oven timer on for 20 minutes after you’ve eaten, before you grab that cookie or Twizzler. Gove the food sometime to digest and I can pretty much guarantee you won’t want it after the 20 mins are up.

Stay busy. Bored and idle hands snack. Keep yourself busy, go for a walk after your dinner, have a bath, go workout, or do a yoga class… or one of my workouts. Stay busy and you won’t crave a thing.

How to prevent sore muscles

7 Ways to Reduce Muscle Soreness

Some tips & tricks that have helped my clients over the 2 decades of personal training:

1. Warm up! Get the blood circulating, the joints lubricated & the body ready.

2. Foam roll to break up the adhesions in the muscle.

3. BCAA’s – branched chain amino acids help fuel you during intense exercise AND help you recover faster. I swear by this stuff!

4. After a workout, stretch out the tightest areas in your body, and try using a band for a better stretch.

5. Have enough protein in your day so the amino acids can help repair the muscle tissue.

6. And… if you didn’t listen to tips 1-4 and wake up crippled 48-72 hours later, best thing to do is to move! Do a bodyweight workout, some cardio, or a yoga workout.

7. Sleep too. If you are robbing the body of sleep, then it is gonna rob you of recovery.

How to Lose Weight Fast

How to Lose Weight Fast

HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT… FAST

A lot more info and fun can be seen on the video. For the fast and quick version, here ya go:

To lose weight fast simply don’t eat or drink. Trust me, the fat will melt off your body. STUPIDEST TIP EVER. I know, but so is the notion that we can drop the fat fast.

In my experience the faster the weight loss, the faster the weight is put back on when you aren’t able to maintain that extreme dieting lifestyle

Instead focus on these three things consistently… and the weight will come off & stay off:

  1. Reduce sugar & starches – removing sugars and starches (carbs) from your diet will reduce your appetite, lower your insulin levels and make you lose weight without hunger.
  2. And then add more protein, fat & veggies – try to get 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight
  3. Lift weights 3-4 times a week – by working on building your lean muscle tissue you will keep your metabolism running efficiently
