Alright, so I really didn't get to work out this weekend, things were CRAZY in Columbus at the Seminar BUT I learned some really important info to share with you ladies.
You see, I am in Leadership Development/Informational Marketting... aka Life Coaching. One of the areas we learn to help coach people on is their health, and so we have all sorts of guest speakers come in. This weekend one was author Mark MacDonald talking about health and the things that we don't realize.
The biggest myth being counting calories is the most effective way to ensure that you'll lose weight, because strictly watching calories and working out is eventually going to plateau. The reason for this is that you're not balancing your blood sugar. If your blood sugar is low or high chemical reactions happen that cause your body to store fat.
Why is this something that I wanted to share... well lets take your morning snack for example, a lot of people will grab something like an apple, some sort of fruit. Well, that's holding you back... you see the apple is higher in sugar content and spikes your blood sugar. The only way to avoid that is to have a balance of your sugars, fats and protein. So in this example an apple with some cottage cheese and a few almonds.
Hope that helps someone, I know I'm so excited to see if this is the change I need to break through the plateau I've been fighting... If I didn't make sense, he wrote a whole book on it lol so check that out here: CLICKY
