Better Than a Gym!

TriSystem Group Classes Starting This Month!

We all know that Personal Training Works, but Who Can Afford it?  The fastest way to get to your fitness goals is to have a highly trained, experienced, educated fitness professional find out what you want and take you there.  Real Fitness Planning also includes much more than workouts.  It includes nutrition planning and nutritive supplements.

What do Real Personal Fitness Professionals actually do?

  • Hold you accountable to your goals and compliance to your plan
  • Customize your program so that it fits you
  • Make you do things that you probably wouldn’t do on your own.

So what is the solution if you just can’t afford $100/ hr sessions for quality training? The answer is…

TriSystem Small Group Classes

Are you on Vacation? What about Mobile Food Component Choices?

Are you on Vacation? Not Cooking at home?

Your long weekend could really use some mobile protein.  This is where my friends, Egon and Eric of Nutrimart have several products, just for this purpose.  The hardest part of traveling is mobile protein. Yes, you should have protein in every meal when possible.  Don't skip a meal if there is simply no protein.  Here are some mobile meal components:
 
Mobile/Convenient Proteins:
 
NutriMart
Quest bars (1 bar is a serving)
Whey Protein (1/2 scoop is a serving)
Complete Cookies (1/2 is a serving)
Liquid Isopure (1/2 bottle is a serving)
 
Supermarket/convenience store
Greek Yogurt (4 oz)
Cottage Cheese (4 oz.)
Edemame (4 oz)
Hardboiled egg
Turkey Sandwhich (1/2)
Albacore Tuna Packets or single serving cans
 
Mobile/Convenient Fats:

Almonds (tbs.)
Peanuts (tbs.)
Macadamian nuts (tbs.)
Order olive oil and vinegar on a salad, out (tbs.)
 
Mobile/Convenient Carbs:

all fruits and Vegetables (limited to 2 cups per meal)

You Should be Able to See All Posts and Articles

I've solved the problem.  The membership plug in and the Facebook plug ins were not allowing people to see my posts and articles without membership.  All my posts are supposed to be free and accessible.  The only post that people can't see is the ingredients to the new supplement I'm working on.  Everything else should be viewable.  If it's not, please tell me!

Refreshing Summertime Snacks That Help You Lose Weight!

 

Refreshing summertime snacks that help

you lose weight!

 

 

Who doesn't love snacking? A great trick to staying lean for your summer is keeping healthy, refreshing snacks on hand. Eating often, especially incorporating fresh fruits and veggies is known to speed up your metabolism and keep you energized! These low calorie nibbles will satisfy your taste buds so you're not eyeballing those forbidden sinful temptations. These healthy snacks will fill you up and burn off quick, leaving you feeling refreshed, not weighed down! 

 

Watermelon

 

Sweet, crisp, quenching! Watermelon is SO refreshing on a hot summer day. Scoop it in to balls and keep it chilled in the fridge. The high volume due to the water content will make you feel full as well as hydrated. One cup of balls is just 46 calories with 21% of your daily value of vitamin C! Great for a fun snack or if you're still hungry after a meal!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jicama

 

This root veggie sort of tastes like a cross between a raw potato and an apple. Crisp and firm but juicy with a pleasantly mild sweetness. 1 cup has just 46 calories and is very filling. Also 6 grams of fiber and a whopping 40% of your daily vitamin C! Jicama is delicious on it's own but for a kick you can add cayenne pepper which works as a natural appetite suppressant. Sprinkle it along with some lemon juice and salt and you have yourself a tasty low calorie FILLING summer snack!  Add some almonds and a low fat protein like Greek yogurt and you have a balanced snack!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yogurt Veggie Dip

 

 

This flavorful dip is high in protein, low in fat and super easy to make! Keep this in the fridge and you will be eating a lot more raw veggies! 1 cup fat free or 2% Greek yogurt, 1 tbsp onion powder, 1 tbsp chopped dried onions, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 tbsp chopped chives and a few drops of setvia. 

 

 

Stevia Lemonade 

 

I have to admit, stevia is one of those things that has to grow on you. You might not like it at first if you try it paired with the wrong thing. For example it doesn't shine so much in coffee or green tea, but it is excellent in citrus! Once you acquire a taste for stevia and learn what it goes well with, you may never go back to table sugar again! Let me tell you, it tastes GREAT in lemonade!!! And did you know lemon juice have very little calories but it makes you feel full? It also alkalizes your body, has cleansing properties and is packed with vitamin C among MANY other health benefits. Make a big batch of this and I promise you; you will be drinking a lot more water and you won't be as hungry throughout the day.

 

For one large glass squeeze 1 whole lemon in about 12 oz of water and add about 16 drops of stevia. Add fresh mint leaves or crushed ginger for something extra! One glass is just 15 calories containing 50% of your daily vitamin C value!

Note:[Jeff advises men to limit their stevia intake to less than 1 tbs. per day]. 

 

 

 

 

Sweet Tuna Crunchers

 

You might be thinking, "I'm not a big fan of tuna". I was like you once. This tuna is different!!!! I am about to share with you one of my most favorite secret recipes. I got it from my best friends mother and ever since I tried it for the first time; hooked! What's unique about this tuna salad is that it's sweet and not fishy at all because I add….drum roll please…..pineapple! The intensely sweet acidy essence of the pineapple perfectly balances the salty fishiness of the tuna. Using drained, crushed pineapple blends with the texture of the tuna so well that your kids, husband and/or friends won't even know it's in there. They will wonder what the heck it is about THIS tuna that makes it SO fresh and delicious! And when you replace the mayonnaise with Greek yogurt this snack is GREAT for the figure! 

 

2 5oz cans tuna (solid white is best)

1 15 oz can of crushed pineapple (VERY well drained)

4 or 5 tbsp Greek yogurt

dash of salt & pepper (if desired)

Optional:

Dried cranberries, diced apples, chopped walnuts, celery

 

(Serve atop cucumber slices cut in thick round pieces

or slice cucumber lengthwise, scoop out seeds and serve taco style)

Economists Say Inflation, Is that of Prices our Your Waistline?

So the economy is bad, that's just one more excuse to not exercise and go get some frozen yogurt or drink a few tonight.  While some businesses are suffering, others are thriving.  Comfort food and alcohol sales are up.  People are self medicating with the wrong medicine.  

Do you know what other business is thriving?

Auto maintenance and repair shops.  Yes, people are trying to extend the life of their cars rather than purchase new ones.  All of a sudden, changing the oil and getting a tune up became more important.  So what about your body?  You can't buy a knew one.  It's time for a "tune-up"

  • What's your target meals per day?
  • What's your target calories and nutrient balance per meal?
  • Oh yeah, and what's your body fat, or do you really want to know?

Inflation?

My prices are as low as they were in the 90's.  If prices are going up,  get more business by dropping the price.  Check out my new postcards (below).  I'm proud of them because I did them all by myself, designed and printed all on the same day.  That's a pretty cool service.  Come by and pick some up.

If you refer a friend and they get just one session, I'll give you one free.  Just tell me who you referred. and don't forget to get some of these cards.

What Bars and Shakes Should I Choose?

The Skinny on Shakes:

I've reviewed a lot of shakes and drink mixes.  My TriSystem Pre and Post workout shakes (members get my shake recipes on their menus.  Click here to become a member) are designed to not be refrigerated.  They are just a mix of powders that you can put in a shaker bottle and just add water when you're about to drink them.  Another option for the shakes are meal replacement packets by  Lee Labrada. They come in a box and you can also put them in a shaker bottle or water bottle.  Already made drinks that are liquid need to be refrigerated and are more expensive, generally  One that does not have to be refrigerated , but tastes best cold is the Isopure Zero Carb Liquid protein.  These are in glass bottles and work well with fruit and a few almonds.

 

The Deal With Bars:

Many bars have bad fats in them that could increase inflammation and actually store more fat.  Stock up on the Perfect Food Bars, they are made right here in San Diego.  Most Henry's stores have them. Check out the store locator on their website, http://www.perfectfoodsbar.com.  The Heart Thrive bars are also a "better bar"  the best place to get them is online at http://www.suncakes.com/Heart%20Thrive%20nutrition.htm.  They need to be refrigerated to last.  I order a lot and freeze some.  These are my first choice bars.   If you just can't find the time to get them, my second choices, for convenience are: 1.  A Clif Builder Bar or (3rd choice) just a Clif Bar or a Small MET-Rx Bar. These can be found in most grocery stores, even convenience stores and gas stations, but they are not as good as the Perfect Food Bars or the Heart Thrive for clean, non-GMO eating on the go.

Who can afford Personal Training anymore? The solution….

So I've written software programs

I've written apps

I've written books and courses

I've written infomercial programs and nationally recognized fitness plans

The one thing that works is direct interaction with a professional like me.  But that is limiting myself to the wealthy.  Everyone should have the luxury because, it is a necessity now.  Being fit is the one proven way to minimize our dependency on a failing healthcare system. So here is a way to get personally trained by me, using a program I created, that only costs dollars per session, not hundreds!
