Eating Before & After a Workout....Is it ok?

Eating your pre- workout meal (before) and post-workout (after) is more than ok. It is necessary! Only under certain circumstances would it be ok to ditch the pre-workout but that's mainly a medical reason. This is actually a rookie mistake that many of us tend to do. We have the mentality that less is more when it comes to losing weight.. So the less we eat, the skinnier we will get. Sorry to break it to you chica, but that is not the case!

Healthy Kitchen Staples

Think of fitness as one of those old fashioned weight sales: if you do too much of one thing (workout like crazy but eat everything in sight) the scale will tip further to that side and vice versa. What some of us don’t realize is that in order to get the best results, you must really look at what you eat pre and post workout. I’ve got some really good recipe ideas for that here .

The Importance of Water

We’ve all heard it a million times from our Doctor, trainers, esthetician and parents….DRINK MORE WATER.

But, whether you understand this or not, drinking water is so important.  Not only does drinking water save you money (he prices of coffee at Starbucks can get ridiculous!) but there is valid proof and research as to why we should all drink more water:

What Supplements should You take?

Tenergy Vitalis: Body Fat Scale

You are not alone. Many of my clients come to me with some sort of trauma they’ve had with the weight scale. There is a 50/50 chance that they NEVER use that dreaded object. Some of them hide it away in the bathroom closet collecting dust and occasionally let it catch some light when they want to weigh luggage to prevent that $50 “overweight” fee.

Coffee has been my addiction but I do know that it isn’t that great for you. So I have tried to like green tea because of the many health benefits it has. That was a fail. I usually just end up throwing the tea away (I know, so sad). I gave up on my attempts of trying to get into the “tea” world and came to terms with the fact that my love for coffee will just have to do.

Alternative to Soda

Even though it is nice to enjoy a cold, refreshing soda from time to time, it is never very good for your health.

This is what I've been trying to incorporate as an alternative to soda when I get that craving for a it, and would like to share it here with you all today.
