Macro + Micro Nutrients equal power pack meal!

When your meal is dense in macro and micro nutrients. Personal trainer Dallas, then you’re in for a full type meal. These are the types of meals that keep you fuller longer, give you energy necessary to power through your day.

Macronutrients as you know are protein, fats, and carbohydrates (personal training Dallas) protein which is the building blocks for your muscles. Essential fats which are key for survival. And Carbs which are the energy sources your body pulls from to get energized.

Micronutrients (celebrity personal trainer Dallas) which are vitamins and minerals like vitamin A, D, K and minerals like calcium, iron, and zinc. These are key for our bodies daily needs as well. And they help carry the macronutrients to necessary locations in the body.

Yes I said it. I am a fan of the Keto diet. The high fat, high protein low carb diet. I’ve seen it work for clients and I know it can work. Why? Because it has the same principals of any diet that works. It’s low carbs, low on the stuff that causes insulin spikes. So this diet is great with weight loss.

Most people try to outwork a bad diet

Most people try to outwork their bad “did I eat today”. I see everyday people outside running miles in the heat and still looking the same. I see guys I play basketball with at the gym (in home personal trainer dallas) looking the same year after year. I see people pounding it away on the treadmill every year at different gyms only to look the exact same year after year. The reason is because they’re trying to outwork a bad diet. Last year I found myself falling into that mouse trap. I put on 20-25 pounds and couldn’t seem to get it off as fast as I use to. So before or after a bad meal, I’d go for a 2-3 mile run, I’d hop on the treadmill and challenge myself with sprints until I was drenched in sweat. I’d feel so good about it until I look at my stomach and notice it was just getting bigger and bigger. I had fallen into the rat race, I was trying to outwork a bad diet.

Once I realize the mistakes I was making, I made a decision to change my daily eating, more fruits, more veggies and legumes and lean meats. I cut out all refined carbs and sugars like sugar in my coffee (personal trainer dallas) bread, pastas, cereals outside of oatmeal. And instantly I saw my weight drop. I felt lighter and had more energy. I learned to not outwork a bad diet instead eat right and workout less!

D.I.E.T= Did I Eat Today?

Diet has had such a negative cogitation for so long. We look at it as a grueling process of eating something like chicken and broccoli 3 times a day and drinking a gallon of water. Some people take it to the extreme of 800-1200 calories a day so you’re eating like a bird and you’re hungry 24/7 but diet should stand for Did I eat today. On my meal plans you are constantly eating, the main goal is to keep you full. But keeping you full of the right foods. Did I eat today?
