Some ideas on prepping for the week.  This guy follows a Zone diet plan so please disregard all the “blocks” and such if you are not familiar with the way the Zone diet works.  If you would like more info about that program, feel free to ask us.  I like the videos because it lays out how simple it is to do this.  From personal experience with extremely busy schedule, I can tell you this makes all the difference in my meal choices and energy level.  I will either skip a meal all together if I can’t get something healthy or I will eat something terrible if I don’t have the ability to skip a meal.  Either way I don’t feel well afterwards.

If you feel stagnant with your phsyique or weight or performance or whatever, please evaluate your nutrition and where you could make some changes.  Ask for help if you are lost with this part of your healthy lifestyle.

Are you trying to sugarcoat Cindy like putting broccoli and carrots in my Top Ramen?

OOPS! That posted when I wasn’t ready for it to go yet! I was just typing down my idea to rearrange..darn it! Anyway… let me retype what I was putting there for the 2nd paragraph around intermittent fasting.

Intermitten fasting is okay for those that have regulated blood sugar. Those that do not have this will have cravings for foods that are not optimal when they are in situations where they don’t have meals planned out ahead of time. It has taken me a long time to be able to do “intermitten fasting” and even on some days it just doesn’t work. People do some of the intermitten fasting to help with fat loss. When your body is used to eating Paleo, Primal or Whole Foods all the time it starts to burn fat for fuel as nature has intended. This in turn allows us to go longer between meals but only if our bodies have stable blood sugar. If we are eating sugars, and lots of carbohydrates this will cause unstable blood sugar and in turn intermitten fasting could cause binge eating. When I travel if I haven’t been able to pack food for the plane, I sometimes take that as my opportunity to do my intermitten fasting.

Just my insight on what I have seen with myself and clients over the past couple of years. Sorry about the crazy paragraph above… I was in the process of cleaning it up and accidently hit return and it posted my jumbled thoughts on the topic.
