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 having my first child, I thought I would never see my old body again... everything I read said 'it takes nine months to put it on so it will take at least nine months to get it off'... I didn't want it to take that long so I called Bally's and was connected with Ann Gosselin. I told Ann my fitness goals and she started me on workout plan that I will forever use. She not only provided me with the proper techniques of a workout, she also gave me the encouragement, support and some healthy eating tips as well to get me into my pre pregnancy jeans again in no time! I am forever grateful for all her advice and support and most of all her friendship! Thanks so much again, Ann, you truly are terrific at what you do and you are such an inspiration!"
