No, I’m not making a pass at you! I’m about to let you know what our focus will be turning to this term!
It’s been a wild ride over the holidays with us finally being able to talk about Cam’s experience here with us at Crabtree Fitness after his departure from the Biggest Loser House. As you are aware we have been training Cam for the last 10 months and part of that training was to keep his nutrition on track.
The “diet” Cam was put on in the Biggest Loser house was completely unsustainable and very extreme! I was shocked at how little he was allowed to eat. This “diet” was for a weight loss competition which is far from the guidance we like to give as part of our long term positive lifestyle changes.
Not long after Cam came home we altered what he was eating and transitioned him onto a simple healthy eating plan that still allowed him to lose fat.
This brings me to K.I.S.S. -KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID!
We are constantly bombarded with information on weight loss, diets and nutrition. Finding information on nutrition has never been easier, but it has also become more complicated than ever before. TOO MUCH INFORMATION!!! “don’t eat bread” “don’t eat carbs” “don’t eat meat” “don’t eat after 6pm” “eat grain fed meat” “buy organic” “go gluten free” “eat for your blood type” “eat 8 times a day” “don’t eat for 5 days then eat whatever you want” “juice everything” ………. It is endless!
It doesn’t have to be complicated.
Our focus this term will be to give you the simple guidance you need when it comes to a healthy lifestyle, whether it be for fat-loss or maintaining a healthy weight.
We eat bread, meat- non organic, eat after 8pm, don’t eat for our blood type, don’t juice, eat carbs after 6pm, don’t starve ourselves and gluten is part of our nutritious regime. We share this information because it’s working out ok for us!!!!
We see people having a constant battle with what they should or shouldn’t do.
Let’s get real. K.I.S.S The number one thing you can do for your health is EAT LESS CRAP. Number 2, eat more nutrient rich food. These 2 golden rules aren’t fads or trends they are contributors to a healthy lifestyle.
At our bootcamps over the next week or so we will be doing our fitness testing again. There is no pass or fail on this. This is a measure of where you are at the moment. Then, we will retest at the end of term. If you put in the hard yards over the next few weeks you will see some terrific results.
We are looking froward to a fantastic term with you guys, bring it on!
