Coach Craig’s Nutritional Tips

17 Aug

1.  Cheat Meals – mark them on your calendar.  Spread them 6 days apart.  Cheat wisely, starting with your protein portion, then move to your carbs last.  Have a great workout to intensity before you have your cheat meal.  After your workout, your body is ready to absorb nutrients, these nutrients are used for recovery and muscle production.

2.  Be cautious of sugar alcohols found in sugar-free gum, candies, and protein bars.  They can cause plotting and abdominal discomfort.  This greatly affects my female clients.  In large quantities, these sugar alcohols can cause a laxative effect.

3.  Oats, brown and wild rice, barley, spelt, quinoa, legumes, and sweet potatoes – These are your carbs…just saying!

4.  Breakfast is your largest meal and dinner is your smallest.  Your body will store the excess calories consumed from dinner as fat.

5.  Consuming proper amounts of fat increases your metabolic rate and helps burn fat.  I find people that stay away from fats usually have a high sugar diet.
