1. Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail. Plan your meals in advance. If you wait until you are hungry to eat then you will grab whatever is in sight and that usually isn’t a healthy meal or snack. Planning your meals in advance and packing your food will save you money, help you maintain your energy levels through the day and keep you less stressed. When your blood sugar level drops, instead of feeling stressed about what you’re going to eat, you will have a healthy meal or snack ready to eat.

2. Overeat and Stretch Your Stomach Muscle. Eat until you are satisfied and stop before you are full. Your stomach is made of smooth muscle and when you overeat you actually stretch your stomach muscle and in turn increase your appetite. This is one reason why a cleanse or a fast for 1-2 days is a great way to help you reset your internal homeostasis and shrink your stomach muscle. It is also the reason why it is important to stop eating when you are satisfied. Pack the rest of your food up and always know you can eat again in a couple of hours. This also helps lower calories and manage portions.

3. Water is Life. Water is 60% of your body weight and is needed for digestion, elimination, the synovial fluid of your joints and in every living cell in your body. Make it a habit to have a glass of water before every meal. Half your body weight and drink that number in ounces of water per day. So if you are 140lbs you should be drinking 70ounces of water. Obviously a 250lbs man needs more water than a 140lbs woman, this is why your water intake should be based on your body weight not just a random number like 8 glasses for everyone. You should also increase your water intake when you exercise with a high sweat factor.

4. Balanced Meals.

1897d993-8844-4f8f-a768-7eb4ede31d77

Make sure your meals are balanced like this “Eggology Egg White Veggie Omelet with a Side Salad and Avocado” with approximately 30% protein, 30% healthy fat and 40% healthy carbohydrates that contain fiber. This will help you feel full and satisfied and give you the energy and nutrients needed to function at your best. Women 25grams of fiber per day and Men 38grams of fiber per day.

5. Biogenetically Unique For every rule there is a unique situation that breaks the rule so it’s important to recognize that you are biogenetically unique and the way your body responds to various foods may be different then your best friend so you must always listen to your body and how it responds after eating a meal and specific foods. If you are bloated, fatigued, indigestion or any type of unpleasant reaction then avoid that food, investigate the ingredients and possibly consider a food sensitivities test.

6. Calories Count. Caloric intake of meals on average should be from 300-500 and snacks from 100-250. Use a metabolic calculator to calculate the number of calories per day that you should be eating then divide those calories out through the day with your largest meals being breakfast and lunch and lightest meal dinner and then 2 or 3 snacks with the remaining calories. Over 60% of the American population is either overweight or obese so millions of people have clearly been ignoring calories. The only way scientifically you can lose weight is by burning off more calories then you consume. It is very easy to eat high sugar, high fat foods that are very high in calories but low in nutritional value so make sure you are aware of the number of calories you’re putting into your body.

7. Late Night Tea instead of Late Night Snacking. If you are craving food just before bed or in the middle of the night choose a glass of water with lemon and know that you will be able to have breakfast in the morning. That is why it is called BREAK “FAST” you are able to “break” the “fast” in the morning. If you still cannot mentally survive without putting something in your mouth then choose to snack on an orange or a handful of berries. A chamomile, peppermint, spearmint, orange blossom or sleepy time tea before bed can also help curb cravings and ease you into a peaceful sleep. Be aware of what you are feeding, are you feeding boredom, depression, loneliness, sadness, anxiety, fatigue, dehydration and more. If you are grabbing food out of an emotion, it’s okay, you’re human but you must recognize and make a change before it becomes routine. Try grabbing a journal and writing down your emotions to release your thoughts from your body. Finish with a meditation or prayer and let it go.

72df9361-ef28-4ca2-80f1-a2664a583c60

Ingredients

  • 1.5 lb raw chicken breasts
  • Salad
    • 5 cups (425g) broccoli slaw (mixture of broccoli, cabbage and carrots)
    • 2 clusters baby bok choy
    • 1/3 cup chopped mint
  • Almond Sauce
    • 5 tablespoons raw almond butter (no salt added, best to purchase the kind with oil in it)
    • 3 tablespoons Bragg Liquid Aminos (or coconut aminos or low sodium soy sauce)
    • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    • juice from 1/2 lime (or whole lime if an extra tangy flavor is desired)
    • 1 tablespoon raw organic honey
    • pinches of red pepper flakes (as needed or desired for heat)
    • tablespoons of water if needed to make the sauce thinner
  • Garnish
    • shaved almonds
    • cilantro
    • red chile pepper

Instructions

  1. Spray a nonstick skillet with coconut oil and set on medium heat. Toss in the chicken breasts without seasoning since the flavor will come from the salad and the almond dressing.  Once the chicken breasts are completely cooked, set them aside and allow them to cool down a bit.
  2. Combine all the ingredients for the almond sauce together in a bowl and whisk together. Add a few tablespoons of water, if needed in order to make the sauce thinner.
  3. Chop up the chicken breasts, bok choy and mint.
  4. In a large bowl, add the ingredients for the salad plus the (cooled and cooked) chopped chicken breasts.  Mix together.
  5. Divide the salad mixture into four equal servings.  For each serving add one-fourth of the almond sauce.
  6. Garnish with cilantro, shaved almonds and sliced red chile peppers.
  7. Enjoy!

Tips for Breaking Through A Plateau

1. Fewer Calories In And More Calories Out. You can work out five times a week, but if you’re not eating a proper caloric intake, then you will never achieve your goal weight. You must make sure that you are eating fewer calories than you are burning to continue with weight loss. It sounds simple, yet most people have no idea how many calories a day they eat and never pay attention to portion control. You can work out five times a week, but if you’re not eating a proper caloric intake, then you will never achieve your goal weight. You must make sure that you are eating fewer calories than you are burning to continue with weight loss. It sounds simple, yet most people have no idea how many calories a day they eat and never pay attention to portion control. Use this metabolic calculator to find the number of calories a day that you should be eating for weight-loss.

2. Choose Quality Fuel: All Calories Are Not Equal. 1,500 calories of processed food has a completely different effect on your body than 1,500 calories of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean cuts of meat and whole grains. The fiber and most of the nutrients are removed from most processed foods like snack bars, crackers, bagels, chips, bread, muffins and cereal, so when you eat these foods your body recognizes them as sugar, spiking your insulin and causing you to crave more food. I am also talking about the processed food that comes in a box with all of the health claims on the front. If a processed food claims it is fortified with this vitamin and that nutrient, keep in mind that several nutrients were also removed, that is why it is now fortified. Organic whole foods that have not been processed are loaded with fiber and nutrients that help you feel full and satisfied and provide the building blocks to all of your living cells. 80 percent of your diet should consist of whole foods loaded with nutrients. There are over than 150 healthy recipes in The Hollywood Trainer Club. 

3. Eat Until You’re Satisfied And Stop Before You’re Full. The stomach is made of smooth muscle, and when you overeat you stretch the smooth muscle of your stomach, which in turn increases your appetite. Always stop eating as soon as you feel satisfied to avoid stretching your stomach. You can always eat again in two hours.

4. Don’t Eat Sugar Or Carbohydrates For Two Hours After Your Cardio Workout.  60 to 80 percent of the fuel you use during your cardio workout is glycogen (sugar) already stored in the muscle. The harder you work out (both via intensity and increase in heart rate), the more calories you burn and the more glycogen (sugar) you burn. During the two hours right after your workout, your body will refuel 50 percent of the calories you just burned during your workout back into your muscles. To make sure you refuel with your body fat in this window you should avoid any sugars or carbohydrates. Your body’s preferred fuel source is sugar, so if you drink or eat sugar in this two-hour window, you’ll refuel your muscles with the sugar instead of your body fat. Yes, you will still burn fat for the rest of the day, but the number one key to fat burning is to keep your blood sugar level low-to-moderate so your muscles are forced to burn your body fat. Every time you eat a high sugar or high glycemic index meal your body is forced to burn some of the sugar in the blood stream before it can go back to burning its body fat. Most people stay in this high blood sugar state and end up turning the additional sugar into body fat, and in the long run they can become overweight and diabetic. This tip always freaks people out, but remember, the way you eat to lose weight is not the same as the way an athlete that has to keep their muscle loaded with glycogen eats. You eat based on your goals. Weight gain, weight loss and performance all require different and specific plans. Be especially careful not to sabotage your fat burning with a high sugar smoothie after your cardio workout.

5. Limit Complex And Processed Carbohydrates In The Evening. Complex carbohydrates are the foods that give you sustained energy to get through the day. Examples of complex and processed carbohydrates are: potatoes, pasta, rice, bread, quinoa, oatmeal, pancakes, cereals, beans and risotto. Your body needs this type of fuel in the morning and afternoon in appropriate portions to give you energy to get through the day. . If you have a medium to large serving of carbohydrates in your evening meal, you usually will not burn it off before going to sleep and it can end up turning into body fat around your belly.To maximize your fat burning, your evening meals should be loaded with vegetables, especially green vegetables (spinach, broccoli, asparagus, kale, collared greens, romaine lettuce, asparagus, etc.) and lean cuts of meat or other vegetarian sources of protein. Be careful not to sabotage your fat burning with an evening bowl of cereal or bowl of pasta.

BONUS TIP: Make sure you are not just measuring your progress on the scale. Your body is composed of 60% water and depending on your cycle as a woman and hormonal changes you can go up and down in weight by as much as 5-10lbs due to bloating, excess sodium in your diet, the muscles processing complex carbohydrates like pasta and bread and much more. Make sure you also measure your progress by measuring your:
1. Body fat percentage
2. Girth measurements the inches around your waist, hips, thighs, chest, arms
3. Fitness level cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility
4. The way your clothes fit 
5. Overall mental health/mental well being (amazing endorphin high from training that combats depression and keeps you in a positive mood)
There is so much more to measuring your progress than the numbers on the scale so make sure you give yourself full recognition and applause for improving in all of these other measurements listed above.

Try this delicious Cinnamon Berry French Toast recipe! Get the full recipe in The Hollywood Trainer Club! French toast can be healthy. Just substitute whole wheat bread for the usual white bread, add some extra egg whites to pump up the protein, and top with mixed berries instead of syrup. If you just can’t live without the maple syrup, then use just a couple of tablespoons. (One tablespoon of pure maple syrup is 52 calories.) I recommend real maple syrup over the sugar-free variety because the artificial sweeteners contain chemicals that may contribute to other long-term side effects. For more healthy recipes log into the club www.TheHollywoodTrainerClub.com click Meals then Recipes A-Z.

We want everyone to be inspired and motivated to work on their core so we created a 30Day AB BLAST Daily Workout Calendar and a 30Day AB BLAST Daily Ab Challenge Calendar.  Everyone can do our daily Ab Challenge because we will be posting them on social media (Facebook, Twitter & Instagram) and they only take 2-3minutes!

These workouts range from 10 to 75mins and they are guaranteed to deliver results! I’ll be doing the workouts with you! There are 5 workouts per week so you can do all 5 in a row or plan them in your week to fit your schedule!

30DAY AB BLAST DailyWorkout.001
Here’s the breakdown:

Week 1 FIRE UP ABS: The goal is to get you to focus on engaging the core. We will review the muscles of the core, rectus abdominus (the six pack), internal and external obliques, serratus anterior, transverse abdominus (the deep muscle that act as a corset pulling in your low belly and supporting your lower back), erector spinae muscles (muscles which line the spine) and lumbar muscles (muscles of the lower back). We will also focus on all the movements of the core, flexion, extension, lateral flexion and rotation. The goal is to make sure you know how to engage all of the core muscles so you feel them working through all of the planes of motion. You would be surprised how often people think they are doing core exercises and they do not feel their core working at all because they are not properly engaging their core muscles.

Week 2 AB SMASH: Now that you’ve learned the movements and muscle groups of the core and you FEEL them working it’s time to INCREASE THE INTENSITY so that you get more results!

Week 3 CARDIO ABS: You can’t get those lean sexy abs without burning off the layer of fat that might be on top of them. The only way to burn body fat is by having a calorie negative at the end of the day so adding cardio to your program and healthy eating in proper portion sizes will help you maximize your calorie burn. We need more calories going out and less calories coming in to maximize your fat burning. The goal is to have a calorie negative of -500 to -1000 by the end of the day so you can burn 1-2lbs per week. All the workouts this week will incorporate cardio to help you increase your calorie burn so you can maximize your fat burning! We will also be giving you nutrition tips to keep you on track and don’t forget your healthy meal plans and healthy recipes are already in The Hollywood Trainer Club just click on “Meals” and “Meal Calendar” to schedule your healthy meals for the week! Proper meal planning is always a win!

Week 4 BLAST THE BELLY FAT: Yes it’s time to take it up another level and add both Strength Training and Ball Exercises to your weekly workouts to maximize your belly fat burning results! The combination of Core Focused Ball Exercises, Cardio and Strength Training will increase your calorie burn while focusing on the core/abdominal muscles. By taking away the stability of the floor and performing your abdominal/core exercises on the unstable exercise ball your ab/core muscles will work harder and you will recruit and fire more muscle fibers!

Week 5 POWER ABS: The core has both fast twitch and slow twitch muscles fibers. Power Abs is all about recruiting the fast twitch muscle fibers with power moves to help you maximize your fat burning and give you a stronger more functional core. A strong, flexible & functional core will also decrease your risk of injury while enjoying your other sports & daily activities.

Week 6 ULTIMATE 6-PACK: It’s time to take everything we have learned and increase the FUN FACTOR!

All of the workouts, healthy recipe guidelines and AB BLAST fat burning tips will be posted in the “Motivation” and “News” sections. The best way to achieve your goals is to make a plan and we’ve already done all the planning for you so lets go! It’s time to blast the belly fat and reveal those amazing abs!
