Week 46 Progress


The holidays are right around the corner and you know what that means - lots of parties, yummy food, drinking, baking.  You get the idea.

Start thinking and preparing now for how you will handle all the temptations of the season.  Here's a couple of ideas to get you going.

  • Step up your exercise program.  Work out an extra 15 minutes a day or increase your cardio if possible.
  • Add more fresh fruit and vegetables into your daily meals.
  • Add extra fiber and multi-grain products daily.
  • Practice portion control.
  • Eat breakfast.  I cannot stress this enough.  It's important to include protein and fiber to this meal to help fill you up for several hours.
  • Get lots of sleep.
  • Drink water.

Week 22 Progress


Summer is about to begin and fresh fruits and vegetables are in abundance.  Are you eating several varieties of fruits and vegetable's each day?  What are some of your favorites?  I eat a great deal of both with almost every meal. 

Try to switch it up so you don't get bored.  Now is the time to try new varieties as well.  If you generally don't like fruit or vegetables, find ways to add them to your diet.  Try juicing them for a fresh and nutritious drink.  Add lots of fresh fruit to your smoothies every day.  Cut fruit up onto your cereal or oatmeal in the morning.  Add shredded carrots or zucchini to muffins or pancakes.  Add raisins and orange slices to your salad.  You get the idea.  Make a conscious effort to add one fruit or vegetable to each and every meal.  You'll be glad you did.

How is everyone's progress going?

What About Fruit Allergies?

QUESTION:

What would you suggest for the guy who is allergic to 90% of fruits? I can't eat most citrus fruits, even apples!  Also, I have a slight addiction to Mountain Dew (30-ish oz per day), would you recommend quitting cold turkey, or gradually over time?

ANSWER:  I suggest eating whatever fruits that you do not have an allergy to.  You can also fill your diet with a lot of vegetables and even carrots and peas which are typically sweeter than most other vegetables.  I normally suggest that when someone is looking for a snack they should eat fruit but in your case i would suggest eating carrots/snow peas or vegetables high in fiber in order to fill you up.  



As far as your soda addiction goes you can quit cold turkey which would be the healthiest  and most beneficial option or you can go to diet Mt. Dew.  The third option would be to cut your real Mt. Dew with diet to adjust to the taste of diet.  Your can do 75% real/25% diet the first weeks then 50/50 the second, 25/75 the third, and then simply diet the fourth.

Q & A - Alternate Veggies

QUESTION:

hey man ive been following your blog and your videos
and im really desperate to lose my moobs so is it ok to workout every day?

I also want to know what should my diet consist of cuz here in india brocolli,celery and asparagus is rare and really expensive.  Can u please help me out?

ANSWER: 



As long as you are in good health and feel like you are capable of working out every day then i say it should be fine.  In my opinion you should not lift weights  more than 5 days a week and on the other two days you should only do cardio.  In my opinion you should take 1 day at the very least each week to rest.  Unfortunately i do not know what type of vegetables are available to you so the best suggestion i can give to you is to eat green leafy vegetables as they are very low in calories and very high in fiber.  This fiber will keep you full throughout the day so you do not feel the urge to eat as often.
