Eating an easy-to-digest high-carbohydrate breakfast two to four hours before morning exercise is recommended because it will help restock liver glycogen stores after an overnight fast. Use these guidelines to design your meal or snack: enough fluid to keep you hydrated, low in fat and fiber, high in carbohydrates, and moderate in protein. Select foods familiar to you. However, eating prior to exercise does not work for everyone; be sure to do what works best for you.

When thinking of ways to build up and give some shape to our calves, we must think of how they are typically “built” from a genetic standpoint on most of us. You see, the majority of us have a lot of slow twitch muscle fibers down there as they must endure a lot of walking around all day and those slow twitch muscles do not respond to growth very well (size).

When time is tight, grabbing an energy bar can certainly be better than skipping a meal. But, according to our registered dietitian, many are nutritionally similar to a fortified candy bar—high in sugar, low in fiber and nutrients, and expensive when compared to whole foods.For a healthful on-the-go snack, consider packing away homemade trail mix made with your favorite nuts, seeds, dried fruits and whole-grain cereal. A little can go a long way, so try to limit your portion to a handful or two.
If you were to put bad gas, kerosene, diesel or water in your car that required quality unleaded gasoline, what do you think would happen? Kind of a silly question, I know. Of course it wouldn’t run right or it straight up wouldn’t run at all. How many of us stop and think about all the bad or wrong “gas” we put into our bodies?
This month's theme is Edify July because when we help others we help ourselves. To start the month off, we had someone volunteer and make journals for all of us. I am titling mine The Cheat Journal and only recording the blunders.
Monday Day 1- Victory. Only whoops was not enough water at a mere 60oz.
Day 2- cravings are still pretty much non-existent as a result of the Usana 5-day Reset program recently completed and the fact that I promised to journal all cheats. So, confession today is I accidentally ate a rice Krispy treat. Sorry ladies.
Parting words: eat well and eat often.
