NUTRITION - MY APPROACH

Scottsdale Personal TrainerWhen it comes to success in any fitness program, 75% or maybe even more, is based on your eating habits! Everybody has different likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, time constraints, work and lifestyle issues and certainly excuses!

However, the typical American diet? Skip breakfast. Moderate-sized lunch. Large dinner. The problem is that’s the exact opposite of our daily metabolic rhythm.

We eat our largest meal, dinner, when our metabolism is at its lowest and when it’s at its peak, breakfast, we eat nothing! If you are serious about dropping body fat, you have to mirror, not defy, your metabolism.

A large breakfast fires up your metabolism to burn even more calories throughout the day. As the day goes on and your metabolism tapers off. For dinner, it’s best to go the low-carb route (while getting most of your carbs during breakfast and lunch). A great dinner for the “mirror your metabolism” approach is a large salad full of mixed greens, protein (chicken or some other form of animal protein), and some healthy fats (ie: olive oil-based dressing).

Because green veggies contain minimal calories while being high in fiber, they’re sure to curb just about any hunger pang with very little caloric damage. Protein on the other hand will contain more calories, but has the advantage of directly supporting calorie-burning muscle tissue. Maintaining muscle tissue while dieting just maybe the most important thing you can do for fat loss and metabolism.

Success Stories
Untitled 1

"After working in the health club industry for 28 years, I feel qualified to state that Ann Gosselin is the epitome of what every personal trainer should be. Ann is the most caring and professional trainer I have ever met; she treats every one of her clients as an individual, designs customized programs for their unique goals and makes exercise motivating, easy to understand, and fun. Ann's clients get results; that is why so many of them continue to train with her. Too many personal trainers only focus on the exercise component of the health and fitness equation. Ann understands that proper nutrition - not fad diets but a sensible approach to eating - is equally important. This is why her clients are so satisfied. They get lasting results and a whole new approach to a healthy and happy lifestyle. Ann is the ultimate professional personal trainer and I would unequivocally recommend her to anyone wishing to improve their state of health and fitness."
