  • Halloween is when the Holiday weight gain really starts!

    Halloween is when the Holiday weight gain really starts!

    Did You Know Halloween is when the Holiday weight gain really starts? Most people put the emphasis on Thanksgiving and Christmas along with New Year’s, but the weight gain challenge actually begins right when the eating festivities begin. Halloween is a time of many candies and treats, but it needn’t be a time of expanding waist lines. The overindulgence of sweets during Halloween often leads to poor food choices following the holiday. The holidays should not be used as an excuse to eat poorly and thusly gain weight. The candy and other treats are still lingering around the house after the holiday is over, encouraging bad eating beyond just the one day. This behavior can ....

  • Another Big Reason Diet Pop Could Be Making You Fat!

    Another Big Reason Diet Pop Could Be Making You Fat!

    I recently wrote a blog post and asked the question “Is Your Diet Pop Making You Fat?” You can read that post here: Diet Pop Making You Fat? ~For as long as us humans have lived on Earth, we have been eating foods that taste sweet, like honey and sugar cane. So, your brain has developed a conditioned response in reaction to eating something sweet. It is called the Cephalic Phase Insulin Response (CPIR), and it’s responsible for the fat-storing effects of diet beverages, including diet sodas, diet tea, coffee, energy drinks, sports drinks, and flavored waters. This adaptation in us humans is a reaction to the eating of sweet-tasting foods. The body ....

  • PERSONAL TRAINER IN ROCKFORD MI- Do You Just Want To Get Your Butt Kicked!?

    PERSONAL TRAINER IN ROCKFORD MI- Do You Just Want To Get Your Butt Kicked!?

    DO YOU JUST WANT TO GET YOUR BUTT KICKED? If you are looking for an effective and consistent CHANGE in your body and lifestyle then you need to stop looking for just the hardest workout in town. The difficulty of a workout alone is NEVER as important as the program as a whole. I can't tell you the number of people I have coached who thought if they weren't sore after every workout or they weren't nearly passing out or throwing up they weren't going to see results. Yet these same people usually came in over trained (too much exercise -usually cardio), and they were usually under eating or malnourished and because of this not seeing results. Or they hadn't done any form of ....

  • Why Do You Procrastinate!?

    Why Do You Procrastinate!?

    Why do you procrastinate and put things off? Is it pure laziness? Is it you are not serious about getting things done and getting up and moving? For some people I truly believe the reason they procrastinate is fear. You are afraid you will fail. So if you don’t try you don’t fail. But if you don’t try you also will never succeed. My biggest pet peeve as a Fitness Professional and Health Coach is someone who says they are going to do something then they don’t do it. We are all guilty of it. Even myself. There isn’t anyone out there that doesn’t procrastinate in some form. But procrastination will kill your chances ....

    Personal Trainer In Rockford Michigan- "I EAT PIZZA EVERY WEEK!"

    Sometimes my clients are shocked when I tell them I eat pizza once a week! I know what you’re thinking “David don’t you preach supportive eating and no fast food”? Well yes I do…..but you mustalso realizeI preach having a day once a week where there are no rules (optional). I believethat ifyou follow a sound nutrition plan 85-90% of the time you SHOULD
    find balance in your nutrition plan and life and be free to eat things not on your plan 10-15% of the time. This will allow you a plan that you can follow the rest of your life and not feel guilty for doing it especially if you have been consistent and have been working hard. So does that mean ....

    Nutritionist In Rockford, MI- Is Your Nutrition Plan Specfic and Customized To You and Your Goals?!

    IS THIS YOU?? ~Working out hard everyday and still not seeing the results you would like? Nutrition is probably your missing piece. Are you following the "whatever" diet? (eating and drinking whatever you want when you want it) Are trying to eat healthy foods but eat these foods kind of randomly with no structure in mind? (doing paleo, gluten free, dairy free, meat free, sugar free, fat free, taste free) Are you following a certain number of calories that you determined was right from you from reading an article or a calculator on the internet?? (1200 calories is definitely NOT the right number for everyone). Most of the people I talk to or come in to see me have do ....

    Weight Watchers is a quite popular diet program based on low fat eating, exercise, and group counseling.

In the Flex plan they have added a weight watchers point calculator and use more weight watcher recipes. Most ....
