Cheat on Your Diet and Still Lose Weight…

Cheat on Your Diet and Still Lose Weight…

Doors closing soon on my =>  Total Body Sculpt Program   Folks ask me all the time “How do I get started?” My answer is always the same…   I say “That’s the easy part, the tough part is staying on the wagon“. And it’s true…   In all my 13+ years of experience as a personal trainer and fitness competitor I can tell you with 100% certainty that diet is 90% of how you look. If you ever see folks “hanging out around the Hostess isle” it’s not hard to put together.   Keep in mind It’s not how much weight you can crank into the air, it’s how long you can keep it up. Anyone can blast into the gym on a whim and lift like crazy, but the folks that are genuinely ‘ripped’ don’t buy into that hype…nor do I.   They know the secret, and so will you when you join the other 117 people on my client list.   For those that are still on the fence here’s a few benefits of joining up now (before the flash sale ends):   1. It’s the only program that will teach you how to cheat with dessert/alcohol and still lose weight. Yup.   2.  No more “Get Thin Quick” harmful supplements that literally hand you back ALL the weight you busted your backend to the 9’s for months to lose… never again.   3. Nevermind back breaking exercise routines that can damage your body for good if done improperly – you can be confident that your’re getting the MOST burn for the LEAST effort…   4.  No more bland food!  Nothing but nutritious...
The TRUTH about Alcohol

The TRUTH about Alcohol

I would like to address a question that many people ask me in regards to weight loss and maintaining a lean and sculpted body. The one thing that many people are confused about is whether or not it is acceptable to drink alcoholic beverages while trying to either lose weight and/or maintain a lean body. Well, if you are wondering, I DO DRINK ALCOHOL! I only drink a few things and the list is as follows: Bacardi (Rum) and Diet Coke Bacardi (Rum) OR Tito’s (Vodka) and True Lemon Lemonade (packets) Bacardi (Rum) OR Tito’s (Vodka) and True Lemon Raspberry Lemonade (packets) Red Wine White Wine As you can see, I keep it pretty simple and boring! The reason for this is because the simple drinks are the “healthiest” types of drinks (for the most part).The problem most people have with drinking alcohol, is that they go for the specialty drinks that have a ton of sugar, carbs, and calories. STAY AWAY from heavy beer, specialty drinks such as margaritas, daiquiris, mudslides, and any beverage that contains more than 2 ingredients. Research has shown that both men and women who drink in moderation, are less likely than non-drinkers to be obese. Although this is true, more than moderate drinking is linked to a greater risk of obesity. Moderate drinking for a woman is 1 drink/day and 2 drinks/day for a man. One standard drink is measured at 1.5 oz of 80 proof distilled alcohol, 5 oz of wine, or a 12 oz beer. All three types of beverages contain the same amount of alcohol (despite difference in measurement), therefore having the same effect on blood sugar. Sticking with...
10 Best Kept Secrets to a Lean Midsection

10 Best Kept Secrets to a Lean Midsection

I want to let you in on my secrets to maintaining a lean midsection. My “method” has pretty much stayed the same over the years and I have had very little fluctuation in my midsection…so I would love to share! Although I have a fairly lean midsection, I am only human, and I blow up when that “time” rolls around and after I eat a big meal. Please understand that the fitness photos you see (of myself and others) were probably taken early in the morning or on an empty stomach in order to get the most “defined” look possible. Regardless of how lean someone is, you can not maintain such abdominal definition at all times of day, everyday! Here are my key secrets: Eat within 20 minutes after I wake up Perform cardio exercise (30 minute HIIT) 20 minutes after I eat in the morning if possible Perform at least 3 (30 minute HIIT) cardio sessions per week Do not eat any “white” foods (no white rice, bread, potato, pasta, etc) Use Stevia in place of sugar (in cooking and baking) Eat 5-6 meals per day and eat a LOW GLYCEMIC DIET Drink more than 64 fluid oz of water ( I drink a minimum of 4 L/ 135 oz per day) No fruit drinks or energy drinks (I use True Lemon instead of crystal light) Drink coffee (if necessary) with Stevia and nonfat/dairy free creamer Perform a 5-10 minute abdominal floor routine at least 5 days/week with little to no rest during the routine. I perform my routines after my dinner has fully digested, while watching TV....
HIIT for Successful Weightloss

HIIT for Successful Weightloss

Most people think they have to do cardio for hours every day in order to achieve weight loss and body sculpting, but they are wrong! HIIT is explained as follows: This is interval training in which you alternate between low intensity and high intensity exercise. HIIT maximizes afterburn compared to “regular” cardiovascular exercises. “Afterburn” is basically our body burning calories after our workout is done (up to 48 hrs post exercise). HIIT increases fat burning enzymes activity in the body. HIIT Increases Human Growth Hormone (HGH) which ultimately increases metabolism. HIITIncreases HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) levels in the body. You will burn more calories doing a 30 minute HIIT training routine than you will running for 3 hours!!!!! I suggest at least 3 HIIT routines/wk along with your resistance training routines in order to get the most bang for your buck! Take a look at this video of my favorite HIIT routine and give it a try! Make sure to have a towel handy! If the treadmill is not for you or you have an injury preventing your from using the treadmill, please try the bike or elliptical for 30 minutes at a resistance between 3-6 as follows: 3 minute warm-up at normal medium pace 30 seconds full out sprint 1 minute regular pace                     X7 3 minute cool-down at normal pace Let me know how it goes! Thanks again for your support! Have a wonderful day and I look forward to hearing about your success!   Sarah/Body Balance...
