Should You Work Out on an Empty Stomach? Hope this helps...
Don’t confuse exercising on an empty stomach with training in a fasted state. An empty stomach means you’ve given yourself enough time to adequately digest your food. That can be anywhere from 10 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the size of your meal.
Being in a fasted state means you’ve gone without eating for more like 12 hours (typically overnight). At this point, your food has not only been digested, but the fuel it supplied has been largely depleted, leaving your blood sugar low and your liver glycogen wanting. In this situation, your metabolism shifts and you’re more prone to burn fat, which is good, but this benefit has more to do with athletic performance than weight loss...a surprise to many of us.
Timing your pre-exercise meal to avoid these conflicts is easy. The general rule is to wait 3 hours after a full, balanced meal. Wait 2 hours after a lighter meal where the nutritional balance is skewed toward carbs. Or for anything less than an hour, keep your snack below 100 calories and focus on fast-absorbing carbs (e.g., half a banana).
I'm not a huge fan of New Year's Resolutions...I'm not saying they are all bad, but from what I have seen, they usually don't work. But the beginning of a NEW YEAR is a great time to start NEW HABITS...so if you are making a resolution, make it reasonable!
As a life coach I also see New Year's resolutions as an opportunity to put off doing what we should already be doing today.
But I think many of us do that because we set too huge of goals for ourselves and we feel overwhelmed by them. Goals that are unattainable. We put plans in motion that we can't keep up with all year long. Friends, that defeats the purpose and it doesn't have to be like that!
It's the same reason I don't agree with "dieting." Instead we should all be shooting for a healthy lifestyle. We can set out to make some small, but powerful changes that will last us a lifetime.
If you are READY to move into a more healthy lifestyle, reach out to me. Together we will figure out a plan that will work for you -- whether you have 5, 10, 25, 50 or more pounds to lose. I will provide you with a roadmap and accountability along the way. I will also be right by your side cheering you on!
Even more fun than that -- I will add you to my exclusive 28 day online group where you will receive support and tips and tricks from other women just like you.
So if you are ready for a solid plan, an enthusiastic accountability partner and a fun journey COMMENT BELOW or MESSAGE ME so we can get started.
Friends, taking care of ourselves is a 3-pronged approach -- mind, body and spirit. That's why I get up early to nourish my spirit with some prayer time and my body with some exercise. Throughout the day I then feed my body foods that fuel it, continue my dialogue with God and fuel my mind with personal and professional development. The result is a higher level of happiness in my life. I grabbed a few quotes to motivate you today! Consider this your permission to take care of you!
Sometimes I have trouble figuring out what to eat for lunch that is healthy. I'm on top of it for this week, though. Today I made some ground turkey breast with taco seasoning that I will use throughout the week with these yummy Romaine Leaf Singles. You could make a Mexican salad or a wrap...add some salsa, and you are good to go!
Confession time!!! I don't really Loooove working out! (Eeek) I do it for how it makes me FEEL! I want to do the least amount of work for the biggest amount of gain! That's why I love the 21 Day Fix workouts!
There are 7 different 30 MINUTE workouts -- 1 for each day of the week, and they come with a calendar that tells you which workout to do on which day. AND it comes with a nutrition plan that tells me what to eat to properly fuel my body! It takes the guesswork out of it!
This has been such a revelation for me!!! Because I used to think I had to go to the gym and do a strenuous 1 hour workout in order to get the body I wanted. And I was eating all the wrong things!
Yikes! I have learned so much, and now I loooove helping my friends learn them, too!
So, if you are wanting to start 2016 out right with your health and fitness, let me know! I will help you get set up so you can start strong!!
