Last week I posted about the official LA Fitness Blog’s #MoveMoreBurnMore Campaign and the 90 Day Fitness Plan. Today I want to point you back their way for the next part in their series, “The LA Fitness 90 Day Diet and Nutrition Plan.“
1 – Assess where your diet is presently
2 – Set up a schedule and routine for your meals
3 – Create an environment for success
4 – Shop wisely at the grocery store
To read more detail about each step as well as lots of helpful tips from their registered dietitian, click HERE to read the original article.
Abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym, or so the expression goes. Without a solid diet and nutrition plan you’re always going to be playing catch up with your calories. You can’t control your metabolism. You can’t control your family history. You can’t control a lot of factors that define how many calories you will burn doing normal things like walking to the car or sitting still.
You CAN control what you eat. That’s a mantra I try to repeat to myself regularly when I’m feeling snacky and bored. I can’t totally control how much I burn, even if I do my best to raise that number. Because I’m a generally healthy person with no food related health concerns and am financially stable in a war-free country, I am fortunate to be in complete control of what food I put in my body.
I need to keep that focus more, and I would encourage you to do the same. Don’t overdo it in an unhealthy way, but be very cognizant that food = energy and anything outside of that will get in the way of your fitness goals.
Be sure to subscribe to the blog, like the Facebook page, and follow me on Twitter and Pinterest, and if you choose to use the advice you found on the LA Fitness blog, post about it with the #movemoreburnmore hashtag to find other people working just as hard as you are to share in your journey.
