Why you’re NOT losing weight!

Which one is you?

⚠️ For weight loss to occur, you need to be in a consistent daily caloric deficit.

💯 Each of these common foods are extremely easy to consume more than you think. If you’re just estimating your potions, then you’re just guessing. Measuring in grams is the most accurate method. Try it & see for yourself.

💪 We hope this helps! Do you measure or track your food intake at all? Let us know in the comments. Feel free to share this with your friends!

WHOLE FOODS MARKET TOUR: BEST DAIRY & DAIRY-FREE ALTERNATIVES | HOW TO SHOP FOR WEIGHT LOSS part 3

Whole Foods Market tour (PART 3) where you will learn how to shop for weight loss & optimum health. Understand which foods and grocery products are best, when on a weight loss diet. This is episode 3 in a 5 part video series, created by Max's Best Bootcamp & Whole Foods Market. This episode focuses on dairy and dairy-free yogurt, milk, cheeses & products, in the Danbury CT store. Milk, yogurt & cheese can all work well for losing weight, but there are advantages & disadvantages to some dairy and dairy free alternatives over others. We break it down for you!

GOT MILK, OR NAH?

Some tolerate dairy, others don't. 

Nut milk galore

There's never been a better time, as technology & innovation has provided us with new non-dairy products.

Coffee lover?

Opt for unsweetened coconut or almond milk options.

Watch the full video (top of this post) which goes into great detail, about which options are best, when shopping for weight loss. I personally don't digest dairy well at all, so many of these new dairy-free products are a big help, to staying on track with my diet regimen. Does this resonate with you, or someone you love?

A take home point for you, regardless of dairy or not, is that if a food works well with your body, then it's a great choice. On the flip side, if it's supposed to be "healthy" but it doesn't sit/digest well with you, then regardless, it's probably not a good choice for you.

Nutrition made simple

Stop wondering what to eat, or how many calories you need to reach your goals. Let us create a custom meal plan for you today!

Are you eating dairy-free alternatives & products because you're lactose intolerant? Do you find them more healthy? The truth is, some people do well with dairy, while others don't.

5 EASY WEIGHT LOSS TIPS 2017 (PART 2)

So you're ready to finally lose the extra weight, but not seeing the results you want. It's OK. This is common, without the right plan. That's why we want to share with you these 5 easy weight loss tips, to help you achieve your goals starting right now. Watch the video above for full details, or simply read on...

1. Get A Workout Buddy - It's always more fun together & inevitably one of you may or may not want to workout that day. Text each other, put it in your calendar & get it done. The point is to make it a healthy habit & to have a support team in place, so that you can keep it up! Extra accountability & healthy competition are good things.


2. Eliminate Added Sugar For 30 Days - Banning the white stuff will help you decrease over all calories & make you more aware of what you're putting into your body. Yes, you've got to read food labels! It's a real eye opener. We did a review of the Whole30 Diet & that was one of the elements that we liked about it. 


3. Increase Your N.E.A.T. - Neat is an acronym that stands for non exercise activity thermogenesis. It's a pretty fancy term, but put simply, it's all of the extra movement that adds up at the end of you day that's not conventional exercising. Walking, performing common tasks at work not at your desk, playing with your kids, etc. It really adds up! Little habits create big change. Have you ever noticed that fidgety people are usually thin? They're constantly moving.

 
4. Start Your Day With Apple Cider Vinegar - It's not a weigh loss miracle cure, but it will help burn fat & suppress your appetite. Read the post below for the full recipe & health benefits. Just make sure the label says raw, organic, unfiltered, unpasteurized.


5. Get More Skin In The Game - You know that spending $10 on a gym isn't much of an investment. You're time is too valuable to waste & time is actually our most precious asset. Spending time & resources on real food, daily learning & hiring a personal trainer are just a few ways to lock in your weight loss success. After all, if what you're doing now was working, you wouldn't be needed to lose the exccess weight. You're worth it, so that you can be the best for YOU & your loved ones.

ARE DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS REALLY WORTH IT?

Don't bother with these!

Go into any grocery store these days & you'll find isles of them. This particular photo is from Costco the other day.

Do we really need all of these supplements? Do you honestly believe that they're better than what we get from real food? We'd say absolutely not. The fact is, it's human nature to want a quick fix. However, until you are 100 percent honest with yourself, that you're eating a clean diet, there's little to no benefit from any of them. Period. Just eat real food!

The problem is, there's so many people - even well know celebrities - who will say that they too a certain supplement/pill & they lost weight fast. Or that it was a miracle cure for what ailed them. The bottom line is that there's BIG money in supplements. It's not about health at all...it's about the dolla bills y'all! If you want to take control body, to perform at optimum health, let us create a proper meal plan for you. We don't believe in fad diets & get our clients awesome results by showing them exactly what to eat & how to exercise to reach their goals.

Do you agree or disagree with our philosophy on supplements? We'd love to know & get your feedback. We're here for you.
