Fighting Fat as a Female

As a female with a 40+ hour a week job, a second job as a Zumba instructor who also trains clients, and a third job as a DJ, it is hard for me to find the time to take care of my body. Before you ask me to clarify the last statement, it is true. You can’t out exercise a bad diet. Even though I’m in the gym 5 days a week, it doesn’t make up for a bad diet. Trust me, I’ve tried! You must find time to take care of yourself! Following these tips I’ve learned over the past few years will make your life easier, and the results will be easier to achieve. This is Fighting Fat as a Female.

Meal Prepping is Mandatory

Meal Prepping is knowing today what you are going to eat tomorrow. Having meals ready to eat for a minimum of breakfast, lunch, and healthy snacks to keep my metabolism up throughout the day. While school is in session, I prepare meals on Sunday for the entire week. I typically go low carb during the day to keep my blood sugar down (great for fat loss) because my body really likes carbohyd

rates (in a bad way). If you have your lunches planned out, you have no excuses for going out to eat and being tempted by fast food.

Here is an example of some meal preps:

Breakfast: 1st Phorm Level-1 Meal Replacement Shake with Almond Milk 

Mid Morning Snack: Almonds or String Cheese

Lunch: Grilled Chicken w/ Broccoli

Mid Afternoon Snack: Pepperoni and Cheese

This diet allows me to have an extremely high protein, low carb, and healthy fat diet during the morning and afternoon hours where I am staying sedimentary. This means that I’m not being physically active. If you are not being physically active, you definitely don’t want to spike your blood sugar. Spikes in blood sugar will cause insulin to dump into your body and cause fat gain.

For Dinners my husband and I like to do crock pot meals that give us enough food for two days.

Don’t be Afraid to Lift Heavy Weights

 

Lifting weights, after getting your nutrition down, is the easiest way to getting the body that you want. Lean muscle burns fat at rest. Fat doesn’t (okay it does, but it is minuscule). Lifting weights will not make you look like a man, or make you bulky unless you A. Take steroids, or B. Eat surplus calories. If you are trying to diet, you don’t want to do either of those. Get a great workout that my husband wrote on this site and hit the gym!

Don’t Spend Hours on the Treadmill

Treadmills are great, however you don’t need to spend a lot of time on a cardio machine to lose a ton of weight. Check out HIIT exercises or mix in some sprints, or a popular class like ZUMBA to get your cardio on. Dustin came up with a great exercise called the DUSTIN CARDIO WORKOUT:

2 minute jog- 30 second sprint- 30 second walk
3 minute jog- 30 second sprint- 30 second walk
4 minute jog- 30 second sprint- 30 second walk
2 minute jog- 1 minute sprint

You can do this workout on a treadmill, outside, on a bike, or elliptical.

Supplements Help, But They Aren’t Miracles!

My favorite supplements for weight loss are: (Free Shipping Links)

Royal 21 Queen System:

The Royal 21 Queen system is great for women having trouble with their metabolism, losing weight, and controlling their appetite. It will eliminate appetite, optimize hormones, and even let you sleep better! This is a must have if you are looking to shred a lot of weight. My client Kim M. lost over 70 pounds in 4.5 months with the Royal 21 Queen System.

Glucose Disposal Agent:

GDA is great and I take it every day. GDA helps block carbs from spiking blood sugar, the number 1 reason why we gain weight. Once blood sugar is spiked, insulin is dumped and fat starts getting stored. GDA helps keep this from happening!

Full Mega:

Full Mega is one of the highest qualify fish oils on the planet. It helps you lose weight, great for heart health, and one of the reasons why my hair and skin have looked so good.

M Factor Goddess: 

M Factor Goddess is a multi-vitamin made for us women that helps us control our hormones, makes periods more bearable, and helps us with the vitamins and minerals we need most!

Post Workout Stack: 

Lean sexy muscle is what we need and the Post Workout Stack will help us get it. Our body needs whey protein isolate and glucose post workout to build lean muscle and for repair. This shake tastes amazing!

Know How Many Calories Your Body Needs

Last but not least, your body doesn’t need as many calories as you probably think it needs. You were told to stick to a 2,000 calorie diet, but for most women, that is far too many calories. I tell my clients to check their BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) and if they are trying to lose weight, to try to eat around that number starting out.  

 

Following these steps will help you lose weight fast! Thank you for reading Fighting Fat as a Female!

1st Phorm GDA Review

1st Phorm GDA (Glucose Disposal Agent) Review

452x512_gda

What is making us fat? For years and even today people think fat is making us fat. Fat has a bad reputation, and although it can make us fat, carbohydrates are the chief culprit. Carbohydrates, especially sugars spike insulin. When insulin is spiked (and you aren’t working out, or in in a post workout setting), your body immediately goes into fat storage mode. Guess where that fat goes? Waist, hips, thighs, and all those other places that you don’t want it to go.

 

What do I do?

You can go low carb, and that will help, although it will hurt your gains because your muscles need carbs for recovery. Or you could use…

GDA by 1st Phorm

GDA by 1st Phorm is a Glucose Disposal Agent. This supplement will move more of the glucose to the muscle and less to your blood sugar. This will keep your blood sugar from spiking and thus will keep your waist size from increasing. GDA also slows down the absorption of carbs which will also help with blood sugar. This supplement combines the benefits of low carb eating with the benefits of having glycogen in the muscles.

 

Where do I buy?

You can order it through various links, but if you order it today here for $42.99: https://1stphorm.com/a/products/gda?a_aid=NutritionTrain you will receive free shipping on your entire order. 1st Phorm doesn’t do coupon codes so this is the best deal you will receive!

 

Summary:

Bigger muscles, shredded, lower body fat, lower blood sugar, more glycogen to the muscle cells, better athletic performance, get GDA!

How to Lose Weight Fast!

Losing weight sucks, let’s face it, however the end results is amazing in all of its glory.

Here is a sure-fire way to lose weight fast.

  1. Join the transformation contest from 1st Phorm. They are giving away $250,000 to the people that show the greatest “transphormations” over 90 days and overall. The new contest just started. Go to mytransphormationstartstoday.com  and register. If you register and put down nutritionandpersonaltraining@yahoo.com as your trainer, I will provide you free meal plans and workout plans!
  2. Calculate your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate). Your BMR is the number of calories you need in a day to maintain your current weight. If you eat less than that number, you will lose weight. http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator/
  3. Create a goal. Setting a hard yet achievable goal for your weight loss is a must. I recommend 1-2 pounds of fat loss per week. In 90 days that equates to 13-26 pounds!
  4. Create a meal plan. Now that you know your BMR you need to target a calorie intake below your BMR. Statistically eating 500 calories less than your BMR will equate to 1 pound of fat loss, however you will be working out. This means that as long as you burn + eat less calories, you will lose weight faster!
  5. A good meal plan should target your ideal body weight in grams of protein (If you want to weight 150, eat 150 grams of protein). Fats should only include healthy fats from fish, olive oil, nuts, beans, etc. Carbs should be low except for post workout.
  6. Create a workout plan. Search this blog for workout plans, and you will find a ton of options! I would suggest 3-5 times a week in the gym, doing at least 15-30 minutes of cardio each day.
  7. Supplements can help you, but won’t do the work for you.The Bliss Go Pack (women) and Commander Go Packs (men)  (click link to purchase) can help you kick start your metabolism, optimize thyroid, help you sleep better, and shred fat! I would definitely by a meal replacement protein powder such as Level-1 (click link to purchase) to help you substitute expensive unhealthy meals with a very tasty protein shake. M-Factor Goddess/Hero is a great multi-vitamin to take to help you replace vitamins and minerals that you will lose.  
  8. Make sure to check your goals weekly. I suggest only weighing in on Friday mornings at the same time each week. I also suggest measuring around your belly button before starting your diet, and every two weeks there after to see results.
  9. Need help? Team Nutrition Train  offers free meal plans, workout plans, and other information to help you hit your goals!

Best Non-Stimulant Pre Workout- ALPHACre HD by 1st Phorm

ALPHACre HD Review

Sometimes when you are dragging ass, you need a boost from your pre workout, however caffeine isn’t always a great thing when it comes to fitness. Sure it gets your more energy, however it is vas0-restrictive. This means that caffeine constricts your blood cells, limiting the amount of amino acids and other crucial vitamins and minerals your muscles need to grow. When you need energy reach for MegaWattHD  , however when you don’t need energy, grab ALPHACre HD.

From 1st Phorm:

Amplify Strength, Delay Muscle Fatigue, Increase Muscle Cell Volume
With each intense rep of your training you are working towards your goal of becoming a stronger high-performance athlete! But when it comes to muscle growth and sports performance, how you fuel your training makes an enormous impact on your overall results. The ability to energize your muscle fibers with more power and stamina will allow you to train harder and longer, and increase your gains. ALPHACre HD™ accomplishes this by combining two powerful muscle buffers, creatine and beta-alanine, so you can take your strength, power and sports performance to its peak!
Creatine is an energy source found naturally in the human body to stave off muscle fatigue. Creatine is a powerful muscle cell volumizer, and one of the most well researched and time proven sports supplements known. Increased creatine levels in the body allow for ATP regeneration and act as a supply of immediately available energy for you during training. This amplified energy allows you to increase the maximal force production of your muscles during intense training. With effective supplementation of creatine, the body depends less on glycolysis (the metabolic breakdown of glucose into energy), reducing lactic acid to effectively minimize muscle fatigue.
Beta-alanine is an amino acid derivative aimed specifically at increasing your body’s carnosine levels, which will enhance your training performance, workout volume, power and overall gains. Heightened carnosine levels have been shown to increase the body’s ability to resist muscle fatigue by functioning as a powerful H+ buffer in muscle cells.
When these two powerful ingredients are combined in ALPHACre HD, creatine and beta-alanine create a synergistic effect that is far more powerful and will facilitate far greater performance improvements than stand-alone creatine or beta-alanine products. If you’ve tried other creatine or beta-alanine products in the past, be ready to be blown away with your performance when you work ALPHACre HD into your training.
The double-tap of beta-alanine and creatine in ALPHACre HD will increase aerobic capacity and endurance, as well as your anaerobic power output and overall strength levels making it an ideal supplement for all types of athletes. ALPHACre HD is guaranteed to help you amplify your performance to the next level!

Level-1 Protein 1st Phorm Review

mainbanner

Level-1 Protein by 1st Phorm is one of the highest quality proteins in the world because of it’s whey protein isolates, whey protein concentrate, milk proteins, egg proteins, and casein. It provides a great protein that mixes the ultra availability of whey with the sustaining protein of casein. This keeps your fuller longer!

82726f89db87a98b3d34d475f26bd02f.jpg

Level-1 Protein is great for meal replacement. It keeps you full longer and only has 138.5 calories when mixed in water. It also tastes great. It also includes 5 grams of BCAA’s. I like to drink this for my breakfast (Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Flavor). I also like the fact that it only has 5 grams of carbs, where 1 of those grams are fiber. 4 net carbs is low carb in my opinion, so I can drink it when I’m cutting. Below is a picture of me last year while cutting.

You can purchase Level-1 Protein here with free shipping! 

My favorite flavors:

  1. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup (Tastes like a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup)
  2. Milk Chocolate (A smooth milk chocolate taste)
  3. Ice Cream Sandwich (Blend this with some ice and it is an amazing smoothie).

From 1st Phorm:

Delivers Sustained Assimilation, Prevents Muscle Break-Down, Promotes Muscle Repair and Growth
Just try it once! That’s all it takes to understand what makes Level-1® the world’s best protein. Level-1 is so delicious that you’ll wonder how you ever got by using anything else. Level-1 was designed from the ground up to be one thing: THE BEST.
Our goal was to create the best tasting, best mixing and most importantly highest-quality protein on the market BAR NONE! A year and over a hundred denied versions later: Mission Accomplished.
Level-1 is comprised of the Level-1 Matrix which is an ultra bio-available, sustained assimilation protein formula consisting of Cross-Flow Micro-Filtrated Whey Protein Isolate, Low Temperature Micro-Filtrated Whey Protein Concentrate, Low Temperature Processed Milk Protein Concentrate, Pure Egg Whites and Sodium Caseinate. The Level-1 Matrix is specifically formulated to deliver the highest quality, premium proteins in a sustained release which mimics the protein assimilation rates of whole food. Level-1 uses only proteins that have been low-temperature processed to take extra precaution to not denature or damage delicate protein fractions.
Level-1 contains among the highest levels of glutamine and glutamine peptides available in a protein supplement at over 4 grams per serving! Glutamine makes up roughly 61% of the amino acid pool in muscle tissue, which quite simply translates into an improved ability of your muscle to deal with stress and the daily beat down you put your muscles through. Level-1 is also rich in the Branched Chain Amino Acids, the “do-everything” amino acids so important to muscle. They are anti-catabolic, which means they help prevent too much breakdown of muscle while also being THE triggers which turn on muscle growth while also being available as a valuable fuel source for your muscles in times of need. Level-1 has over 5 grams of BCAA per scoop!
Level-1: Just try it once. That’s all it takes. No bloat, no gas, no burps, no stomach discomfort, no funky aftertasteUltra High BioavailabilityTrue Low Temperature Processed proteins build more muscle, while keeping the fat offUltra Smooth & Creamy TextureSustained release designed to mimic the protein assimilation of whole food*

Post Workout Gains! What should I take to optimize muscle gains?

Banner1Everyone is concerned with pre-workouts but you should be more concerned with Post Workout!

 BxNXyBZCAAELWui

Tommy Boone PHD explains that your muscles use glycogen and ATP during exercise. To increase muscle size, decrease recovery time, and increase strength, I suggest taking three supplements…

Your Body Needs Glucose!

As Dr. Boone explains, your body uses glycogen during intense weight training. Post workout your body is starved and needs to recoup these stores. Simple sugars like those that are in Ignition, help breathe life and growth back into your muscles. Ignition has some of the purest forms of glucose that will replenish your glycogen levels post workout!

Your Body Needs Creatine!

As Dr. Boone explains, the body needs ATP during exercise. Creatine helps increase ATP production. Creatine also helps the muscles grow bigger, decrease recovery time, and increase strength. Creatine is the most cost effective and studied bodybuilding supplement in the world. A serving of creatine is less than 18 cents!

Your Body Needs Protein! 

Many studies have shown that a high protein shake or meal post workout has increase hypertrophy and overall muscle growth compared to not having a high protein shake or meal post workout. Protein synthesis is heightened after post workout. Protein synthesis helps create larger muscles!

phormula

My Suggestion:

1st Phorm Creatine
1st Phorm Phormula-1 Protein
1st Phorm Ignition

Note: You can save money by buying the Post Work Stack from 1st Phorm with Ignition and Phormula-1. Then add creatine for $17.99 all with Free Shipping!
