TIDBITS & TIPS

on December 4, 2013

You should always include two basic elements in every meal:  Protein & Vegetables.  On days you lift weights, eat more carbs (E/Energy).  On days you don’t work out eat fewer carbs.  Everything else stays similar.  Still eat a lot of protein.  Vegetables will be a necessity.  Do not avoid fats (S/Satifying)!!

On workout days:  Eat protein & vegetables at each meal.  Before workout, take in a small amount of carbs, such as half a cup of brown rice, a piece of fruit or a bowl of oatmeal.  After you workout, have a meal of protein, vegetables and either fruit or a non-processed carb source, such as sweet potatoes or  brown rice.  At meals where you don’t eat carbs (w/ the exception of vegetables), eat a combination of protein and fat.

On non-workout days:  Eat protein & vegetables at each meal.  Try to limit starchy forms of carbs; instead eat a few pieces of fruit for the day.  Make sure your fat intake is high enough; enjoy foods such as eggs, fatty fish (salmon) and avocado, or have snacks such as almonds or different nut butters.

When you first start a new program, it’s best to handle your supplement protocol like everything else–keep it simple.  It’s easy to get excited about all the possibilities and wonder what a little extra help might do for your body.  Here’s what you need to know about supplements:  They exist to FILL GAPS in your fitness and nutrition plan.
Diet and workouts will always provide the most staggering results.  Supplements make sure you don’t have any weaknesses in your approach.  As you become more familiar with your body and your needs, you should consider other options, such as pre-workout products and proven performance enhancers (check out AdvoCare performance products line at www.chellespark.com)

To begin, I’ll suggest 1– PROTEIN POWDER – You need protein in your diet (DUH).  Sometimes your budget and or schedule makes it tough to eat all the chicken and lean steak your body requires. This is the effecient and cost-effective way to make sure you doh’t fall short of your protein goals.  I like the AdvoCare Meal Replacement Shake for breakfast on days when I’m in a rush!  Aside from breakfast time, I use an Isolate Protein (that I can’t seem to remember the name of right now)  2– FISH OIL:  This supplement offers all-in-one magic.  It improves heart health, lowers triglcerides, helps you recover from tough exercise sessions, helps promote healthy metabolism, promotes maintenance for healthy hair, skin & nails, maintains good brain health and keeps things “moving”   I’ve said it several times before but Dr. Oz recommends AdvoCare OmegaPlex as one of the best two on the market and states that most OTC fish oils are more toxic than beneficial.  3– MULTIVITAMIN:  This is the staple of a supplement protocol.  Your improved diet will undoubtedly be packed full of the nutrients your body wants, but the multivitamin makes sure your body has everything it needs.  Think of it as a dietary insurance policy.  AdvoCare CorePlex provides a strong nutritional foundation, contains a synergistic blend of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and botanicals.  It promotes a healthy immune system, supports healthy muscle and connective tissue, contains antioxidants to help combat the effects of free radicals and supports healthy bone structure and growth.  It provides a comprehensive package of B vitamins, serves as a superior nutritional supplement and contains chelated amino acid-bound minerals for better absorption.

The 24 Day Challenge helps you understand this and learn the habit of proper eating.  If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.  If I don’t KNOW the answer, I’ll FIND it!  There are no stupid questions.  I’m here to help you achieve your goals   If there is anyone you know who you think could benefit from all that AdvoCare has to offer let’s get together and “Spark ’em”..it only takes ONE~
