Meal Plan of the Week: Chalean Extreme Week 11

Plan to fail or fail to plan. That is the motto this week! With Easter this weekend I really have to make sure my eating is on point for the week and the only way to do that is to have my plan!

I know I will be eating Ham and Potatoes, Desserts and bread… that is how our holiday meals go! But if I want to still get results I better plan that 80% of the week… so That is why you see what you do!

 

I am starting the Ab Diet again and this is one thing I love to experiment with- each day I will incorporate more and more of these items! So of course with me working from home, my plan tends to change alittle- but when I have this set, when I am not prepared I have this food prepped in the fridge!

No to Meal Replacement Shakes, WHY?

A fellow coach brought this point up and I thought it was GREAT! So many times I hear ” I don’t want to drink a meal” “i like food” “i want to chew my food” hey guess what ME TOO!

apple, nutrition, food, fuel your body, eat clean, clean eating, healthy, beachbody coach, beachbody,

SO….Let’s talk about Chewing!
I hear the argument from people that they won’t drink a meal replacement shake because they want to chew their food. Fine, chew your food. Here’s my position.
apple, nutrition, food, fuel your body, eat clean, clean eating, healthy, beachbody coach, beachbody, balanced meal, complex meal

apple, nutrition, food, fuel your body, eat clean, clean eating, healthy, beachbody coach, beachbody, veggies, shakeology, healthiest meal of the day

1) If you are efficiently eating to fuel your body, you are eating about 6 meals a day. Why can’t you chew 5 of those times and drink 1?
2) If you say you need to chew your food and are in the fitness industry – can you honestly say you NEVER drink a protein or meal replacement shake? Don’t take any recovery drinks?
3) If you want to chew your food, how MUCH food you gonna chew to get many of the missing vitamins, minerals, probiotics, prebiotics, phytonutrients in your food? Even a strict clean diet is missing A LOT of what our bodies need to thrive, live longer, have more energy, clean out.
4) So you don’t supplement? Just veggies, herbs, fruits, grains, and protein sources? You don’t take a vitamin, add any supplements to your diet plan?
apple, nutrition, food, fuel your body, eat clean, clean eating, healthy, beachbody coach, beachbody, , shakeology, healthiest meal of the day, meal replacement, vitamins
If you are complaining about something and that you are tired of feeling like X and not achieving the results you want- then keep doing what you are doing. Keep chewing. Because I chew all day, and I drink 1 freakin fantastic yummy shake that curbs my cravings, cleans out my cells, allows me to function to the highest of my ability like the best oil change in the world. Everyday, I get an oil change.
In the fitness industry, and you want to look and feel fit and healthy right?- “Shakes” are like water, it’s normal to drink a shake.
apple, nutrition, food, fuel your body, eat clean, clean eating, healthy, beachbody coach, beachbody, shakeology, veggies, healthiest meal of the day
I also hate having to always prepare something to eat. What happens when nothing is prepared- go grab some carbs or even worse junk. Shakes have SAVED me in many situations where I can’t get quality food. It’s not about chewing to enjoy food, you are fueling your body.
Now will you reconsider drinking one meal a day? Try it for 1 month before you say no, that is a joke… because I can GUARANTEE you will LOVE IT!!!! There is a variety of flavor and ways to spruce it up to your liking, how will you make it!?!?!

Transform your inner beauty!

Often times we find ourselves worrying about the outside of our body, neglecting the inside! Our health is probably #1 concern for many Americans today! Transform the inner beauty and then the outside!

Unknown-6

Unknown-4 copyHow can we transform the inner beauty you ask? Simple, start with your nutrition! What are you eating today? Did it come from a box, does it have sugar, and is it processed with artificial ingredients or flavoring? If you commented yes to this question then you need to start with the basics of Clean Eating to help you get on track! 80% of our results come from a healthy diet, not diet as in starve yourself, diet as in what you eat daily (5-6x a day!)

 

Next, Make sure your inside are getting the proper amount of Vitamins and Nutrients! How many of you supplement your body with multivitamins everyday? That is fine and most of us need extra vitamins in our system, but if you could supplement 1 meal with your multivitamin and energy drink (or caffeine) would you? Have you ever heard of Shakeology? I consider it a MUST have for everyone! It is not a protein shake, it is not just a meal replacement, it is your health in a glass! It have vitamins, nutrients, amino acids, antioxidants, superfoods, and all in 1 glass, once a day! You can’t beat drinking a shake (that tastes like a smoothie or milkshake-depending on flavor) versus taking pills! Atleast I can’t! It breaks down to $4.35/ shake and covers a meal and cup of coffee, or your daily starbucks!

391748_10152205931060182_778991278_n

Simple nutrition is simple math! One thing I have found that has helped with the Inside and maximizes the results to get is working on the outside, exercise! But don’t FOCUS on that, focus on your inner beauty to transform the outside!!!

What is one thing that you know has benefited the inside of your body? Post Below, I love hearing how Health and Beauty mingle!

Spotlight on Shakeology Ingredient: Chia

Chia seeds are native to South America and have been a staple in Mayan and Aztec diets for centuries. Today, they draw the interest of many people for their health benefits and uses in cooking. It turns out the South American staple is a rich source of nutrients and antioxidants.It contains calcium, manganese, and phosphorus, and is a great source of healthy omega-3 fats. As an added benefit, chia seeds can be eaten whole or milled, while flax seeds have to be ground before consumption in order to access their health benefits for example. When buying, both white and black are good, but red are immature and black that are smaller than regular are not good!

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Chia seeds are rich in polyunsaturated fats, especially omega-3 fatty acids. Chia seeds’ lipid profile is composed of 60 percent omega-3s, making them one of the richest plant-based sources of these fatty acids — specifically, of alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA. The omega-3s in chia seeds can help reduce inflammation, enhance cognitive performance and reduce high cholesterol.

Fiber

Fiber is associated with reducing inflammation, lowering cholesterol and regulating bowel function. Chia seeds are an excellent source of fiber, with a whopping 10 grams in only 2 tablespoons. That is one-third of the daily recommended intake of fiber per day.

Antioxidants

Chia seeds are rich in antioxidants that help protect the body from free radicals, aging and cancer. The high antioxidant profile also helps them have a long shelf life. They last almost two years without refrigeration.

Minerals

Two tablespoons of chia seeds contain 18 percent of the DRI for calcium, 35 percent for phosphorus, 24 percent for magnesium and about 50 percent for manganese. These nutrients help you prevent hypertension and maintain a healthy weight, and are important for energy metabolism and a part of DNA synthesis.

Satiety

Satiety is the feeling of being full and satisfied, which helps lower food cravings between meals. The combination of protein, fiber and the gelling action of chia seeds when mixed with liquids all contribute to their satiating effects.

Gluten-Free

Chia seeds contain no gluten or grains. Therefore, all of the nutritional benefits of chia seeds can be obtained on a gluten-free diet.

Egg Replacer

The outer layer of chia seeds swells when mixed with liquids to form a gel. This can used in place of eggs to lower cholesterol and increase the nutrient content of foods and baked goods. To make the egg replacement, mix 1 tablespoon of chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of water and let sit for 15 minutes.

Can Be Digested Whole

Unlike flaxseeds, which are also high in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and minerals, chia seeds do not need to be ground in order to obtain their nutrient or egg- replacement benefits.

Dyslipidemia

A study published in the “British Journal of Nutrition” showed that chia seeds as a dietary fat source can lower triglycerides and cholesterol levels while increasing HDL or “good” cholesterol. The study also found that when substituting chia seeds for other fat sources, such as corn oil, the ALA was able to prevent high triglyceride levels and reduce central obesity.

Blood Sugar Regulation

Chia seeds can play an important role in regulating insulin levels. They can reduce insulin resistance and decrease abnormally high levels of insulin in the blood.

 

images-1

 

 

They can be sprinkled whole on top of salads or toast or added milled to smoothies, and some on ice-cream, They are flavorless so they will not change the flavor of what ever you add them to! “Add them to anything and everything”

 

All of these amazing benefits in one little seed! Add these benefits to the AMAZING dense dose of nutrition, shakeology, and see your health SKY ROCKET!

Insanity Challenge Pack Promo for April- 60 day program

How many of you have heard of Insanity or saw the informercials on TV and said “WOW, that looks crazy intense!” ? I know I have, but when I did it, I LOVED IT!!!! This is one of the many programs Beachbody has to offer and is a GREAT cardio program! It is all done at home and in the comfort of your space! FOR THIS MONTH ONLY IT IS $25 off, a TOTAL of $93 in savings!!!! Summer is only a few weeks away =)

Screen Shot 2013-04-01 at 11.35.54 AM

What is it?

INSANITY® is a 60-day cardio- based total-body conditioning program that’s the most intense workout ever put on

DVD. Fitness expert Shaun T drew on his collegiate track and field training, plus his subsequent years of experience as an elite trainer, to create a program that takes total-body conditioning to an extreme level.

Just as P90X is the height of resistance training, INSANITY is the pinnacle of cardio training.

 

Why is it effective?

Interval training allows you to beat the “stress adaptation response,” which is what happens when your body gets used to exercising at one level of exertion and stops improving. An interval workout includes a set where you perform at your maximum, followed by one of lower intensity, with the cycle repeated to achieve a cumulative effect.

INSANITY uses MAX Interval Training, which replaces your moderate- intensity exercise with maximum-intensity exercise, and your short intervals of intensity with short periods of rest. Adding high-intensity exercise, during which your heart rate increases to 80 percent or more of its maximum capacity, forces your body to use fast-twitch muscle fibers not normally engaged in cardio exercise. These fast-twitch fibers continue burning extra fuel even during lower-intensity exercise.

INSANITY’s high-intensity activity is likely to have you working out at over 85 percent of your maximum capacity, instead of the lower rate recommended in other programs. As a result, you’ll experience faster increases in fitness and more efficient burning of carbohydrates and fat—as much as 1,000 calories per hour.

What can it do for you?

INSANITY pushes you beyond what you thought was possible with explosive cardio and plyometric drills and nonstop intervals of strength, power, and resistance. Additional ab and core training techniques will help you transform your body in just 60 days.

Screen Shot 2013-04-01 at 11.35.30 AM
