DAY 2 – Wheels are in full motion!

by

OK, so here are some helpful tips for this challenge…

1. First off, WATER – you need to drink lots of it.  Research has shown about 2/3 of your body weight in ounces.  I like to either fill my daily quota in a plastic gallon first thing in the morning, or I keep a log of the # of glasses I’ve had on my iPhone throughout the day. HINT – if your pee is dark, you’re not drinking enough H2O!

2. MEAL PREP – there’s no better ingredient for success than PREPARATION! If you don’t have your meals ready to go or at least have an idea of where your meals are coming from ahead of time, e.g. Miami FitBox, you will get hungry and resort to eating whatever you can get your hands on!  (TRUST ME!!!) I like to prep for 2-3 days in advance – any more than that and your food is EW! I never reheat chicken – I eat it cold….have you ever tasted reheated chicken? EW! Some good snacks to have ready in your refrigerator…boiled egg whites, portioned cottage cheese, celery/cucumber spears.  Also cut up your veggies so it is easier to prep during the week.

3. CONSTIPATION – you may run into it later on. It’s common when you change your eating habits and increase your protein intake. Just make sure to drink lots of water, and eat your veggies. You may want to switch your rice servings for a sweet potato.

4. If you want to TRACK your FOOD INTAKE, there are a lot of really cool apps out there… check out this site http://appadvice.com/appguides/show/best-iphone-calorie-counter
I personally like MyFitnessPal.

5. SUPPLEMENTS
Sometimes we need a little help to get all the nutrients our body needs.  But which supplement are really necessary?
I will be elaborating more on SUPPLEMENTS over the course of the week…

Have a good night!
