With exercise, intervals and resistance training are go-tos. The boxing intervals featured on this show will both work your core and do the metabolic good they need to – all while you’re having a blast and toning your arms! People will want those arms: deal with it!
If you’re trying to lose weight and specifically, fat weight, fiber is your best friend. (Protein is a close second, and foods that turn to sugar easily are the enemy). Not surprisingly, with the Standard American Diet (me thinks the acronym SAD is not by accident), most of us fall far short of even the recommendation. I, along with many of my colleagues, recommend a much greater fiber content for optimal health and weight loss. Click here for a chart full of some surprising high fiber foods that will make it easier to reach your best. Start slow. Increase your water intake as you increase fiber.
Berry Chocolate Smoothie
- Chocolate Girls Gone Paleo Protein
- ¼ Avocado
- ¼ cup gluten-free oats
- Handful Spinach (you won’t even notice it!)
- ¾ cup Strawberries
- 1 T. Cocoa powder
- 1 T. Chia seeds
- 1/2 -1 cup of almond milk (depending on smoothie or bowl)
Top with raw coconut flakes and a berry on the rim of your glass. I’ve been bowled over. I’m loving thicker smoothies in a bowl instead of the drinkable version. Just use 1/2 cup of the milk to go for the bowl.
If a snack attack hits you in the afternoon, this is a yummy go-to. Alternatively, if you’re exercising early in the morning, chocolate for breakfast? Why not? It’s packed with protein and fiber: craving killers that will take you right to lunch full of energy.
