Something to remember!!!

May 02, 2009

Are you tracking your food intake in a food journal? Is it on track? ·                                 Are you tracking every single calorie that passed your lips? (flavored water, vitamins, gum, single pieces of candy) Even if you aren't keeping track of calories, your body is! ·                                 Are you eating too MANY calories? ·                                 Are you eating too FEW calories? ·                                 Are you taking in enough protein? 80-100g/day ·                                 Are the fats you're eating healthy (polyunsaturated and monounsaturated) ·                                 Are you eating too many simple carbs (bread, pasta, potatoes, sugar, pasta, rice) ·                                 Are you eating enough fruits and veggies? ·                                 Are you drinking enough water (water flushes fat toxins from our body)? ·                                 Are you grazing? ·                                 Are you eating the right quantity? Measuring and weighting foods? ·                                 Are you eating on a schedule? ·                                 Are you exercising hard enough? Long enough? Fast enough? ·                                 When's the last time you changed your exercise routine? (The body becomes efficient and doesn't burn as many calories after we've done the same thing for 4-6 weeks) ·                                 Have you added weight training to your workouts? (muscle burns more calories at rest) ·                                 Are you taking all your vitamins and supplements? ·                                 Have you started taking any new medications that might promote weight gain? ·                                 Have you taken your measurements (you might be losing inches even if the scale isn't moving)
