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
"Thank you so much for all of the help you have given me. I was never one that was prone to using personal trainers because, after years of working out, of course, I knew everything. After the first few times working with you I understood how much I had been missing. I can’t believe how much further ahead I would have been if I had worked with you earlier and expended the same amount of effort. I am not the easiest person to get along with and I expect a lot from the people with whom I deal. Your positive, professional attitude helped keep me on track, and your natural leadership inspired me to do my very best without feeling intimidated or overpowered. Perhaps people are sometimes reluctant to seek assistance out of some type of apprehension about the instructor or what will take place. I have seen you in action with numerous people and I see where you treat each person individually and you have the skills to bring out the very best in your clients and students. Thank you again for all of the help. You are the best personal trainer that I have ever seen in action and I wish I had met and worked with you years earlier." Best Regards, David M. White
