As summer winds down and the changing of seasons begins, it is time to look ahead to the holiday season. To be successful in your goals, it’s important to start preparing for the upcoming months before the holiday festivities are underway. The better prepared you are with strategies around diet and exercise, the more you can enjoy celebrating and feasting with friends and family.
This Tuesday Sept 18th we are having a workshop to help you do just this: Top 5 Things to Know About Diet. I will be teaching about how nutrition and diets work, and offering suggestions to maximize success for everyone. I’ll cover the popular diets like Paleo, Keto, Mediterranean etc. and explain why some people do well and why most fail.
To get you started on your goals now, let's bust a common nutritional myth: “Fasting makes you burn muscle…” Wrong! At least for most of us. Only once you have less than 4% body fat, then your body will start to break down muscle. But before that, your body accesses fat for energy. Burning muscle first would be like storing firewood (fat) to burn for the winter, and as soon as you need energy you throw your sofa in the fire. That makes no sense physiologically if you have enough fat (firewood) to use as energy first.
Come hear more about this and other myths at our event on September 18th. RSVP to Kristen at firstname.lastname@example.org to save your spot.
