Good Bye Personal Trainer Food™. Hello to a new me!

As I officially end my 28 days on the REV program on June 4th, I am anxious to see whether I can incorporate all that I have learned through Personal Trainer Food™ to change my lifestyle, so that I am eating healthier. It is a sad day for me since I have become dependent on the foods provided to me initially knowing that these premeasured foods are full portions, which help to eliminate overeating, as well as eating the wrong foods. I am proud of the fact that I have progressed as far as I have in such a short time – 16.2 pounds and counting, but plan to continue onward with the program to reach my goal. Another 10 to 15 pounds to go, I think would be my perfect weight for my height and build. 

Good Bye Personal Trainer Food™. Hello to a new me! 

In a previous review, I mentioned exactly how important it is to get your exercise on a daily basis, as well as drinking plenty of water and eating your vegetables. This is especially true when you are dieting. The guidelines of the Personal Trainer Food™ program suggests that you walk 20 minutes or 2000 steps a day. Although I do my 20 minutes of walking a day faithfully, I was curious to know approximately how many steps I take on a typical day. To obtain this information, I downloaded an app on my smartphone just for fun, which counted the steps as time progressed. I was amazed to see that I had taken over 2000 steps even before I walked my 20 minutes on the treadmill.

The following photo depicts the amount of steps after I walked the 20 minutes.

PersonalTrainerFoodWeek3Photo2052316

Just think of it, over 4300 steps in one day. This is definitely an incentive to add other exercises into my daily routine. Since I lost weight, I need to firm up those flabby areas of my body.

If you are serious about taking the weight off, you will follow the guidelines closely. That means eliminating sugar from your diet, and no cheating. If you follow the guidelines, I can assure you that you will lose the weight. I have lost over 16 pounds in the 28 days of this program, and in doing so, I feel much better. I have more energy, I have dropped two pant sizes, and best of all, I am not hungry! The food that you receive from Personal Trainer Food™ are full portions with no fillers, hidden sugars, bad carbs or trans fats and low or no gluten.

After Personal Trainer Foods

Prior to starting the Personal Trainer Food™ program, I could only image what it would be like to experience a holiday without all the traditional foods on the table. However, I have since learned through the program to change my lifestyle. No, it is not anything drastic. Actually, it is easy to do, if you have the will power, which with the right incentive, you are able to achieve your goal. My husband has been a real inspiration throughout my journey to lose weight and must say that he is very pleased with my progress. Although I know he loves me, he is excited to see the new me, or rather the old me back in his life – the person I used to be prior to all the weight gain. He has supported me along my journey, and at times has even tempted me to deviate from the plan; however, I am staying strong and eating the correct foods. Even if I need a snack between meals, instead of the cookie or candy bar, I now reach for a couple cherry tomatoes (which have now become my favorite) or a celery stick.

This past Memorial Day, the weather was quite warm, so I decided I would try the following recipe from the Personal Trainer Food™ website. This was such a refreshing change from the usual holiday food served on a hot and humid day. Moreover, talk about tasty. Both my husband and I loved it. Check out the recipe section on the company’s website for suggestions of dishes to prepare, anything from meats to desserts. The best part of this site is the fact that you can get ideas on how to turn a plain and ordinary meal into something extraordinary and still stay within the guidelines of your diet.

Are you Following the Program Faithfully?

In order to achieve a goal, you must be persistent.  You need to keep that level of determination to reach that goal.  That means staying strong.  With a world of so many temptations with food and beverages, it is so easy to be lured by the craving of just that one piece of pie, cake, ice cream, or even beer.  Do not do it!  You will regret it immediately afterwards and it will set your diet back several days.  You will not see results on a daily level, but you will see the results with Personal Trainer Food™.

Are you Following the Program Faithfully?

I am proud to say that I am being faithful to the Personal Trainer Food™ program, even though I have had several temptations, on a daily basis, this past week alone.  I am approaching my second week on the Personal Trainer Food™ program in just a couple of days.  I can begin to tell a difference in my weight, as I can wear my wedding ring again, and my clothing is a bit looser.  I still have quite a bit of weight to take off, so I plan to follow the program closely to achieve my goal.  While I have not set an exact figure on how much I would like to lose, I know I need to continue onward until I obtain the weight where I feel I am at the top of my game.  I have not reached that point yet.  I am learning to change my lifestyle toward eating healthier.

I found this past week that I’ve had an urge to drink more water.  Before this program, I rarely drank water unless it contained ice cubes.  I know it is important to keep hydrated, especially since it helps my body detoxify from sugar faster.  Drinking an adequate amount of water daily is important for overall good health because water aids in digestion, circulation, absorption and even excretion.  But, how does water affect your skin?

The fact is that skin is an organ, and just like any other part of the body.  Your skin is made up of cells.  In addition, skin cells, like any other cell in the body, are made up of water.  Without water, the organs will certainly not function properly or at their best.  If your skin is not getting the sufficient amount of water, the lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight and flaky.  Dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling.  As water is lost in large quantities every day, you need to replace it somehow.  The unfortunate truth about drinking water and skin is that water will reach all the other organs before it reaches the skin.  Therefore, it is important to apply water to our skin and keep it there – this will not only show a visible difference in hydration, but it can prevent wrinkles, as well.

According to the article How Much Water Does the Human Body Need Daily? by Alyssa Clement on the LivingStrong.com website:

“Water is essential for human survival.  An adult body is made up of about 60 percent water… Water removes waste from cells, brings nutrients to cells, regulates body temperature and helps you digest food.  When you do not consume enough water, serious complications can arise.  Your hydration needs depend on exercise, diet, age, body fat, altitude, pregnancy, medications and the weather.

Diet

The average amount of water consumed for males and females is based on caloric intake.  In general, you need 1 to 1.5 milliliters of water per calorie consumed each day.  On average, a female needs 9 cups of water per day, and males need 13 cups per day.

Exercise

Exercising increases your hydration needs.  Exercise and improper hydration, as well as clothing, weather and exercise intensity, can affect the balance of electrolytes in your body.  Before exercising, make sure you are properly hydrated.  Drink about 20 ounces of water two hours before a workout.  Drink 3 to 8 ounces of water every 15 minutes during exercise sessions.  If exercising longer than an hour, drink a solution with carbohydrates and salt to increase fluid absorption and regulate blood sugar.

Hot Weather

Hot weather raises your requirement for fluids whether you are exercising or not.  Drink fluids even when you are not thirsty to ensure hydration.  When you are exercising intensely in hot weather, drink two to four glasses of water during the session, and include fluids with carbohydrates and salts.  Caffeinated drinks, alcohol and heavily sugared drinks do not count as hydrating.

Dehydration

Dehydration is very serious and can affect your heart and body temperature, cause fatigue and possibly result in death.  Children, elderly people and ill people are more prone to dehydration.  Symptoms of dehydration include dry mouth, fatigue, increased heart rate and decreased urine output.”

Some of this information I already knew, but many of the tips are new to me.  Of course, I know personally that I am thirstier in the warmer weather and therefore I will usually drink more fluids; however, I do not always drink the proper fluid such as water to quench my thirst.  After reading this article, my aim is to drink more water.  I am sure that many of our readers follow the same pattern, and since those who are following the Personal Trainer Foods program walk for 20 minutes or more a day, they too need to drink more water.

PersonalTrainerFoodPhotoWeek21052016

Week Two

Do not expect huge results immediately during your diet.  You did not gain the weight overnight; neither can you lose it overnight.  Even just a few ounces will make the difference in how you look and feel.  This past week, I found that I was not always hungry when mealtime came around.  I read all the informational material that I received when I received the Personal Trainer Food™, which stated that you should eat your three meals.  However, my schedule is a hectic one because of my husband’s health condition, so we do not always eat our meals at a set time each day.  I found when I consume more water, my hunger level declines significantly.  With the help of my Personal Trainer Food™ coach, I learned that it is not always essential to eat dinner, if I was full from lunch.  Likewise, if I was not full after dinner, I did not have to starve myself before bedtime either.  This is the period that it critical to me, between dinner and bedtime.  This is where I am most vulnerable.  To help curb this craving, I have saved one of my snacks to tide me over during this period.  So far, this method has worked for me.  However, as an individual, your circumstances might be different.

PersonalTrainerFoodCombination01051916

It is important to drink plenty of fluids while on the program, but it is just as important to consume your proteins.   Everyone needs protein for his or her bodies to function.  Protein is one of the big three macronutrients.  The other two are carbohydrate and fat.  Adequate protein intake is essential for good health:  It is necessary for maintaining the body’s normal growth and its muscle mass (which is mostly protein), its immune system, and heart and respiratory functions.  As a rule, between 10 percent and 15 percent of your total calories should come from protein.  Through the Personal Trainer Food program, you receive your daily requirements through their meats with both breakfast and dinner meals.  When you enroll in the program, you select the particular types of meats you would like to receive for the duration of the program.  The breakfast meats are pre-packaged with your egg option.  The dinner meats are individually packaged, leaving you the option to select whatever meat you wish along with your choice of vegetable.  And, the meat choices are all delicious!

To spice up your meals, check out some of the terrific recipes on the company’s website:  http://www.personaltrainerfoodblog.com/category/recipes/.

Do not forget your Personal Trainer Food™ Coach is always just an email or phone call away.  He/she is more than happy to answer any questions that you might have, even if you just need some encouragement to continue.

Learn more about Personal Trainer Food™ through their social media sites:  Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook.

Do not expect drastic results with Personal Trainer Food™ right away, as I mentioned earlier, you didn’t gain the extra weight overnight, so you won’t lose it overnight.  Stay determined.  I know you can lose the weight.  Stay faithful to the program, and you too can achieve your desired level of weight, to ensure you are at the top of your game.

YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE  Can You Have a Cheat Day and Still Lose Weight?

That is a loaded question and the answer is basically NO.  If you are wanting to stick with the program and lose the unwanted weight you need to follow the program.  Sure you can have a cheat day but you will pay for it in the long run.  You could gain weight which comes back on much quicker the cheating way than normally, you forget your purpose for trying to lose weight in the first place.  So if you don’t even consider cheating and it won’t be an issue and you will continue to reach your goal weight.  But you might want to read what the trainers are saying about it.

Weight Loss Essentials

Have you been struggling with your weight since the new year? Did you make a new year’s resolution to lose weight and you just can’t seem to get started?  Nutribuddy’s Weight Loss Starter Kit can help you get started and stay in the groove and finally lose those unwanted pounds.

Weight Loss Essentials

IMG_0150

Nutribuddy sent me the Weight Loss Starter Kit that included a package of Nutribuddy Sculpting Whey, Nutribuddy Multivitamins, Nutribuddy Hunger Fix, Glucomannan 500mg Capsules and The Little Book of Weight Loss for the purpose of this review.

I have always been a firm believer that protein is the best thing you can do to build muscles and lose weight and the Nutribuddy Weight Loss Starter Kit can do just that.  I too have been struggling with my weight and wanted an extra kick to get started and the Nutribuddy Sculpting Whey as done the trick for me.  I simply mix one scoop into either water or milk to make a shake and drink it on the way to the gym in the morning.  I really like putting one scoop into 12oz of chocolate milk because it then resembles a chocolate shake you could get at the ice cream store.  It is so yummy.  I have noticed that it does help with my exercising and I seem to have so much more energy than if I would eat just eggs before I go to the gym.

IMG_0156

I think that if you exercise, you need as much energy as you can get to get you through your workout.  I have been swimming and that uses several different muscles all at the same time so you are depleting your energy much faster.  But if you have a good start like drinking a Nutribuddy chocolate shake before you go and workout you have enough energy left over for other things once you are done at the gym.  The shake I make is about 33 grams of protein in just one shake.  The milk is 12 grams of protein and the milk is 21 grams for protein.  I only use whole milk because to me the other stuff just resembles water.

IMG_0155

Then on top of that Nutribuddy shake you want to take one of the multivitamins which are good for your immune system plus there is energy to gain from those as well.  Multivitamins help to produce healthy blood cells and maintain healthy skin and eyes.  Nutribuddy Multivitamins have vitamin E, A, B1, B2, B6, B7, B12 and Folic Acid Zinc and Copper giving you a well-rounded multivitamin.

IMG_0152

The Nutribuddy The Little Book of Weight Loss has a eating plan to help you achieve your weight loss goal.  There are recipes to help you plan a 5-day meal plan and a list of Do’s and Don’ts like do drink at least 2 litres of water a day, eat fresh vegetables and seafood, eat on a smaller plate and eat high fiber foods.  Some of the don’ts are don’t eat fast foods, don’t skip beakfast, don’t drink fizzy drinks (pop) and don’t eat refined carbohydrates.

Checkout Nutribuddy and look at Facebook for other testimonials and look at Twitter.   If you have been struggling with your weight since the new year and you made a new year’s resolution to lose weight and you just can’t seem to get started?  Nutribuddy’s Weight Loss Starter Kit can help you get started and stay in the groove and finally lose those unwanted pounds.

Second 28-day Personal Challenge

Last Friday I had finished my first 28-day Personal Trainer Food Challenge where I had done quite well, so, I thought I would start another 28-day Personal Trainer Food Challenge.  This time I plan to use more of the recipes and I have started taking a swimming class in the morning which should help strengthen my muscles.  From Personal Trainer Food website is this recipe that looks real yummy and the instructions are below.

Second 28-day Personal Challenge

untitled

Broccoli Cheese Bake

Personal Trainer Food Ingredients:

1 Bag of Fajita Chicken for Salads,

1 bag of Broccoli,

1 Colby Jack Cheese Stick, shredded,

Sweet Garlic Vegetable Sauce, to taste,

1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder.

Instructions:

1.Heat the Fajita Chicken for Salads and Broccoli in the microwave. Once heated, take out of the bag and place in a bowl.

2.Mix in garlic powder and top with cheese. Microwave until cheese is melted

3.Add Sweet Garlic Vegetable Sauce to your liking, mix and serve.

With the cold weather outside this Broccoli chicken soup is great to eat because it is warming and when you eat hot soup your appetite does not scream for more food.

There are 121 way to tell if you have lost weight other than a scale.  Here are a few:

  1. You can take your jeans off without unbuttoning them.
  2. Over Christmas, everybody asked me if I had lost weight. I told them about Personal Trainer Food and now half of my family is wanting to start as well!
  3. I actually like looking at myself in the mirror now.
  4. I finally made the connection that food fuels my body, not my happiness.
  5. I’m not hiding from the camera anymore. Now I’m in all my family pictures and I’m even letting people tag me
  6. I feel 100 times better now that I have lost the weight — physically, emotionally, mentally, everything for me has improvedThese are just a few of the ways I can tell that I have lost weight.  There are 121 of them in all by all the people that have used the 28-day program.   Not wanting to be brave and put on a swimsuit I choose to put on shorts and a top that was once again too big.From Personal Trainer Food Blog there are several ways you can work on that belly fat but today I have included three ways that will help on that belly fat, things you should avoid and items you should eat more of.  I will send more ways in some of the other posts during my next 28 days.

    #1 Avoid This Poison

  7. syrup
  8. We all know that High Fructose Corn Syrup is bad for you. The reason is because the only organ in your body that can digest fructose is your liver.  Fructose in any form is a poison to your liver and in large quantities causes non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.  In the mirror, a diet high in fructose manifests itself as belly fat, a sign of insulin resistance and metabolic disease.  If you are carrying any excess weight, reducing all fructose, including from fruits will help you lose weight, especially belly fat.

    #2 Eat Eggs to Lose Faster

  9. eggs
  10. Eating eggs instead of cereal, oatmeal or bagels for breakfast can be a big advantage to losing weight from around your belly.  Studies have compared groups of people ate an egg breakfast of 340 calories versus a bagel breakfast of 340 calories.  After 8 weeks, the egg breakfast people had an 83% greater reduction in their waistline than the bagel eaters.

    #3  Up your Greens

  11. greens
  12. Dark leafy greens are unlimited on our program for a very good reason.  There is no argument that these are some of the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat.  Leafy greens are packed with important vitamins, minerals, and fiber that will help your body burn tummy fat.  They also fill you up without adding excess starches to your program.  All of our entrees and veggies are great on a bed of mixed greens, making a quick and hearty salad for lunch or dinner.  Try this salad today with your favorite entree and see!I hope you plan to watch me as I try my second 28-day Personal Trainer Food Program.  Check out Personal Trainer Food and checkout the New Year’s sale.   More to come, so I will see you soon

Twenty-Eight Days & Counting is getting closer

Friday January 8th will be my 28 days of Personal Trainer Food Program and I am anxious to see how I have progressed over the time period.  I know that I have done quite well considering it was during the holiday season and I had to resist a lot of seasonal foods but I know that it has made a difference because I feel it in my energy level and how my clothes fit.  I even went out and purchased some new clothes which always make you feel good when you can purchase that smaller size.  Last week I gave you a before picture and a picture on the 20-day mark showing quite a difference in my size.  I am hoping to possibly drop another size if I can swing it.  I will just have to walk a bit more which always helps but I have to stick to eating all the right foods and not be tempted to have a donut or candy bar.

Now tonight I plan on having a burger for my supper.  I will fix my husband just a hamburger like he likes his and I will have the better 100% Angus beef burger from Personal Trainer Food Program. It is one of the best burgers I have ever had.  For a side I might add some broccoli or cauliflower and possibly a lettuce salad to complete my meal.

IMG_0077

I have always enjoyed my breakfasts with egg and maple sausage or an omelet with maple sausage or bacon.  I haven’t even missed the bread because the breakfast is very filling and the maple flavoring on the sausage adds a bit of sweetness.

IMG_0093

Have you thought about making your New Year’s Resolution and getting hooked up with Personal Trainer Food Program?  It is one of best ways to kick start your weight loss and you do it is such a way that you are not trying to do too much too soon which always makes you fail.  I know from experience that the Personal Trainer Food Program has helped me loose more weight than I thought could be possible and it was not that hard to follow the program.

IMG_0096

This is the Teriyaki Chicken and mixed vegetables which was absolutely to die for.  That by the way is a regular size plate so the portion size is quite big.  Another one of my favorites was the meatballs which you can make a soup with or just eat them plain with your choice of vegetables.

IMG_0068

One thing to remember is you always have a Weight Loss Coach that is ready to help you if you need it and you can eat a meal out occasionally.  Just remember to eat meats, eggs, leafy greens and non-starchy vegetables which means you can eat off most menus without worries.  That is what is so fabulous about Personal Trainer Food Program is the steps are easy you just have to follow them and you will succeed in losing weight and inches.

I plan on following Personal Trainer Food Program until I reach my desired weight and size of clothing I want to get back into.  I will follow up with you closer to Friday and let you know exactly how I did with the program.  Until then.

I have told you how delicious the meals are, but you are not only required to eat just Personal Trainer Foods.  You don’t want to get bored on this diet because it does work and to keep you interested you have to change it up a now and again.  To change things, you can add unlimited leafy greens, meat and eggs are unlimited, you can have almonds, pistachios, walnuts or sunflower seeds. You can have an apple a day, a variety of cheeses like cheddar, mozzarella and other hard cheeses.  You can have salad dressings with 2g or less of sugar per serving and non-dairy powdered coffee creamer.  Occasionally, you can even eat out by following the simple DO’s & DON’T guidelines.

Now you all know that I have been doing this during the Christmas season and I have been subjected to things like pecan pie, cookies, mashed potatoes, candy and all the other typical holiday goodies we always fill our houses with and I was good not to eat anything that was not on my list.  It was not even that hard to say no because most of that food did not even sound like it would taste good.

Now would be a great time to make your New Year’s Resolution by using the coupon for $75.00 off any meal plan by using the promo code NewYear when you place your order.  Check out the meal plans and see how easy it will to start the new year off right.

As my 28 day program progresses I will continue to tell you how I am doing and the progress I have made.  I know while everyone else at the dinner table was stuffing their faces, I was eating foods that were helping me reach my ideal weight and I was the only one at the table that was not grunting and groaning because I had eaten so much I couldn’t move.

Use the coupon to help you get started on the fabulous new you for 2016 but you need to hurry because the offer expires on January 1, 2016.    Keep watch, I will be writing real soon.
