Goals <ul><li>This is not a diet </li></ul><ul><li>This is a lifestyle change to help you for the rest of your life </li></ul><ul><li>Help educate on proper nutrition and exercise </li></ul><ul><li>Not covering things already covered, wear a condom, don’t smoke </li></ul><ul><li>Implement this knowledge into your everyday life </li></ul><ul><li>Individual must be motivated to start the program and to make it a habit. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Nutrition <ul><li>The key to a successful lifestyle change is having a sound and proper nutrition even more then a proper workout routine </li></ul><ul><li>Must find Healthy food you actually enjoy and don’t have to force down </li></ul><ul><li>A good balance between protein 40%, complex carbohydrates 40% and some healthy fats 20%. </li></ul><ul><li>Optimal of having 4-6 smaller meals every 3 hours, but can be accomplished if on tight budget with 3 larger meals </li></ul><ul><li>Having 4-6 Smaller meals helps keep your Metabolism elevated and also helps us to feel less hungry with eating more often. </li></ul><ul><li>Allow a day for a cheat meal each week to give you relief and enjoy a not so healthy food option you miss. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t starve yourself, if hungry eat </li></ul>
  4. 4. Nutrition continued <ul><li>Will lose weight but not quickly this is steady gradual process. (Also depends on what your diet use to be and exercise routine was before) </li></ul><ul><li>Start off by calculating a rough estimate of how many calories you burn a day with this website http:// choose whatever fits your lifestyle best. </li></ul><ul><li>Then divide that by the amount of meals you think you are going to be able to eat a day </li></ul><ul><li>it also depends on your goal if you want weight loss you can subtract 500 calories from your estimate to lose a pound a week or if wanting to bulk up have an excess of 500 calories a day, do not lower to where you would be losing over 2 pounds a week or where you are still hungry 1-2 is a healthy weight loss a week. </li></ul><ul><li>Calorie count the best you can if can measure out with a measuring cup, but don’t become obsessive, do your best, Do not count vegetables and fruits just eat till your satisfied. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Carbohydrates <ul><li>They are the preferred nutritional source of energy </li></ul><ul><li>Carbs help you with increase brain function, increases endurance for prolonged exercises, also helps in the recovery process after exercising, and causes a &quot;Protein Sparing&quot; effect so that protein is used to increase muscle tissue and recovery. </li></ul><ul><li>Eating Carbs dose not make you fat, anything in excess will make you fat. </li></ul><ul><li>Difference between carbs, Complex and simple Carbs </li></ul><ul><li>Measure the difference between Complex and Simple carbs you use the glycemic index </li></ul><ul><li>The rating on the glycemic index is related to its effect on spiking blood sugar. This is important because when your blood sugar spikes, your pancreas secretes the hormone insulin to shuttle glucose from your blood into your body cells </li></ul><ul><li>Instead with slower absorbing carbs your body has a easier time of storing it, and the more energy will be stored in your muscle cells and help you feel more satisfied after your meal. </li></ul>

Simple carbohydrates <ul><li>Simple carbs have been known to increase the chance of higher incidence of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even breast cancer. </li></ul><ul><li>According to the world Health Organization, Sugars and other simple carbohydrates are a leading factor in the worldwide obesity epidemic. </li></ul><ul><li>Simple carbs can lead to cravings and compulsive eating, cause wide swings in your blood sugar levels and cause weight gain in most people. </li></ul><ul><li>Examples are : Table Sugar, Corn Syrup, Fruit Juice, Candy, Cake, Bread Made with White Flour, Pasta made with white flour, Soda, Candy, All baked goods with white flour, most packaged cereals. </li></ul><ul><li>Look on Labels for sugar, surcose, fructose, corn syrup and white flour </li></ul>
