Portion Control Tip For Nutrition

I have a super fast and simple tip for you today regarding portion control. Have you ever seen these little portion control containers on TV – they’re from the 21 Day Fix.

The cool thing is, they’re just measuring cups that you can use as a portion control tool to help you determine the correct portion sizes you need.

I don’t know if you’ve ever used a portion control diet container before or even needed to utilize something like this for weight loss, but most people I help lose weight need help figuring out how to better measure their food.

How I Eat Healthy on the Go

I have a super busy day ahead of me, if you follow me at all, you know that I have been helping with the filming of Chalene Johnson’s new educational program called the One3One diet. I normally work from home, but I feel so blessed to be able to help with the filming of this new program.

The days have the potential to run long, so I have had to make sure I prepare myself so I can sustain my energy and health. So, when I made my shake today, I added a fiber boost along with a power green boost, knowing that it would likely be a long day. I also added a banana so I have my greens covered, along with fiber and fruits.

Right now, I am running a support group to help people with healthy eating. I often get questions about what to do when you are traveling or when you know you have a long day ahead. I’ve developed these practices throughout the years and wanted to share with you some of the ways you can eat healthy on the go.

A lot of time my husband and I attend personal development and business conferences and if you add up all the time it takes to get to and from the event, along with the actual conference, you are looking at being away from home like 14 hours. What I normally try to do is pack nuts, protein bar, dried cranberries, normally a banana.

I also carry a shake with me that I could mix up if I can’t find a healthy alternative. Pack things that don’t need refrigerated so they will last throughout the day. Eat a big breakfast and bring with you healthy snacks that will keep you from grabbing something unhealthy during your those long days. Always carry water with you.

Those are the tips I have for preparing for a long day ahead. I would love to hear from you what kind of tips you have. I’m super excited to learn more today about the One3One diet and I will share with you all the details in a later broadcast. For now make sure you follow me for more tips from me on eating healthy.

 

How to Keep Up with a Workout Program

Today I want to talk to you about  my absolute musts in keeping up with your workouts. It’s so difficult to know what is going on with your body when you start a workout program, especially when you expect to be feeling more energetic and stronger and your body is feeling something different.  I was on the fence for so many years about taking supplements, all the while thinking I can just eat healthy and get everything my body needs through food. Now that I have been in the fitness/wellness business for over eight years, along with teaching fitness classes since the year 2000, I have found it is very difficult, if not impossible, to get  everything our bodies need from food alone. In researching vitamins/supplements, I found that our soil is not given time to rest between plantings so it’s stripped of so many nutrients.  It is for that reason that even the healthiest of us may still be lacking in certain vitamins/minerals.  I know I talk all the time about Shakeology and you know how much this has changed my life, it is with Shakeology and other supplements that I use that help with my workouts and daily health. I want to share with you how I keep up with my workouts, while taking care of my body as well.
