Dinnertime!

tuna Dinnertime!Hey ProSource fans,

Keep all those recipes coming in and help all of us reach our goals for daily eating. The next meal we’ll address is the 5th meal. For many of us, this is the dinner time meal and having your regular chicken/beef/tuna with your complex carbs such as brown rice, baked potato, and greens is ideal. This meal is very important in that it’s one of the last “food” meals we’ll have for the day, and we have to make this clean as possible. This is the time we all tend to wind down and for many this is the time we have to be wary of. We have to watch because we can put on unwanted weight. The night time is one of the worst time for many, including myself, so being strict is the name of the game.

Nutrition is something I am always fascinated to learn more about and is what keeps me intuitively eager as a professional to learn more and more.  I am mystified each time I compete because I learn something new every show I prep for.  Every client I work with that is interested in nutrition consulting also makes me learn something new each time as well.  As I said before, every one of us is so different and figuring out the best plan that suites each of us is the challenge of it all.  I do think that there is a perfect diet and lifestyle for everyone of us out there that we can look our best and also enjoy life too.

Success and the Art of “Going Backwards”

The key to success in whatever fitness or nutrition plan you are pursuing is being totally true to yourself.  Whenever I start my training I make a list of things that I know I am not good at and make sure I address each one in my 12 week prep the best of my abilities.  For instance, I got all my partying out of me and I made a commitment that I will not miss church these next couple months.  I threw away all my chocolate Easter candy that sometimes beats me down.  All of the outside stressors and negativity need to be put to a halt and dealt with after competition and total satisfactory with my body is accomplished.  You should never plan on doing something that you already know you are going to fail at.  Confidence dictates success when pursuing a diet or exercise regime.
