Dallas Boot Camp and Coppell Boot Camp – Personal Trainer Tip of the Week

Video Tip of the Week from Personal Trainers of Get You in Shape –  Get You In Shape Boot Camp.

Are you ready for the next trend in healthy eating?  Having nothing to do with counting total calories or fat, this trend has you counting total ingredients…except that we’re putting ingredients on the short list…literally that is.  In order for a food to be classified as a “clean food” it has to contain five or less ingredients.   Amanda Carlson M.S., R.D., the director of performance nutrition and research for Athletes’ Performance, says “the move to clean foods will be the biggest food trend in the next 12 to 18 months.” It’s really not fair to call this a “diet” or a “fad” because it’s just good healthy eating.

It is eating the way nature intended. You eat the foods your body is designed to function best on, and that makes you feel – and look – fantastic. When you eat clean, you eat more often. You will eat lean protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats. These practices keep your blood-sugar levels stable and keep you satisfied. The best part is that if you need to lose weight it will happen almost without you having to try. And yes, you can have a treat now and again!

So I’ve got a challenge for you boot campers!  Aside from your meal replacement protein shakes, for the next 30 days don’t put anything in your mouth that has more than 5 ingredients in it.  Or maybe, if that’s too “high intensity” of a challenge, just try snacking on foods that contain 5 or less ingredients. 

To help you better digest what’s happening and also avoid the hidden pitfalls of mildly deceptive products, here are the menu rules for the challenge:

  • Try to eat and drink only those things that contain five or fewer ingredients.
  • Try to make sure that each of the ingredients is natural and recognizable. (In other words, no monoglucobenzesorblahtal!)
  • Try to buy organic and local when possible.
  • For prepared foods such as soups, chilies and casseroles, it’ll be okay to have more than five total ingredients. So a 15-vegetable soup or an 8-bean chili is fine, as long as each item that goes into it has five ingredients or less.
  • Do your best to abide by these guidelines without beating yourself up or becoming a social outcast. That way, even if you waver at a family gathering or fall tailgate, you won’t feel like you’ve failed and let it derail your nutrition habits.

Eating clean can be a major transition for a majority of people due to addictions to sugar, white bread, and fast food. It takes discipline in order to make eating clean a habit but it is possible and has many long-term health benefits.

Some of the health benefits are:

 Eating Clean keeps you feeling great and full of energy. In fact, you can forget all about the days when “dieting” meant feelings of hunger, lethargy or deprivation.

Eating Clean is not a fad; it’s a way of life. When you eat clean your body will react by losing weight if you need to lose, maintaining a healthy weight if that’s where you are, and even gaining weight if you are too skinny. But regardless of whether you want to lose, maintain or gain, you will feel better than you ever have before.

There is no fitness goal which you can achieve without first cleaning up your diet.  Changing your diet is one of the biggest challenges when faced with improving one’s health.  A majority of people are used to eating highly processed foods on a regular basis and breaking away from that can be difficult.  The good news is, it isn’t impossible and once you make it a habit to eat clean, it becomes a part of your life.
