Here’s a question we get all the time…

Is it possible to build up a firm, rounded butt AND burn away fat to reveal leaner, flatter abs? At the same time?

The goals seem to contradict one another. So we asked our “figure expert,” Autumn Calabrese, whether — and how — we could achieve both results using a single fitness and nutrition program.

Her answer? A resounding yes — it could be done. “We would need the right workouts in just the right sequence — plus a targeted approach to nutrition — that would last around three months. But to get results like those would really take a commitment.” She thought about it for a minute and laughed, “It might literally take an obsession!”

If you are new to Beachbody on Demand and want to be part of this ground-breaking program, go to 80 Day Obsession Combo Challenge Pack to get everything you need and unlimited access to Autumn’s new program 80 Day Obsession when it launches on January 15, 2018!

8 Healthy Eating Tips to Banish Boring Meals

 

8 Healthy Eating Tips to Banish Boring Meals

Let’s face it: “healthy eating” has a PR problem.

If you’re new to eating healthy, that phrase may bring to mind an unappetizing image of a boring plate of salad topped with grilled chicken next to a piece of fruit. It’s what you might scoff at as “rabbit food.”

Yes, foods like fruits, veggies, protein, and whole grains are part of a balanced, healthy diet, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with plain oatmeal and a banana for breakfast every day.

Whole foods can act as a blank canvas for exciting flavors and textures; it’s all about targeting your senses by maximizing the deliciousness of your healthy meals, so you you’ll want to eat them again and again.

First, let’s explore these senses and how they affect your eating experience.

Healthy eating tips, meal prep, portion fix, healthy eating

How Your Senses Affect Your Eating Experience

Eating is all about the senses. Taste, smell, sight, touch, and even sound all play into our enjoyment of food.

Taste

Taste is crucial to appreciating food. You have 10,000 taste buds that are evolutionarily wired to like sweet, salty, and rich (aka, fatty) foods because they contain lots of calories and nutrients compatible with survival.

A study by Yale researchers found that mice genetically bred without the ability to taste sweetness don’t prefer sugar water any more than plain water at first.

After a few days they learned to prefer the sugar water, likely because it contained a prized reward: calories. Drinking the sugar water also prompted the release of dopamine, which plays a major role in reward-motivated behavior of the brain.

True, humans are more complex than mice, but this experiment indicates it’s possible for taste preferences to be rewired.

Smell

Smell works closely with taste to create flavor. There are five tastes (sweet, salty, sour, bitter, umami) but there are thousands of smells to help you recognize what you’re eating.

Smell may also help your brain decide if it should burn or store calories. An experiment by UC Berkeley researchers found that mice who had their smelling abilities removed could stay trim while eating a high-fat diet, despite eating the same amount as mice with normal smelling abilities.

The science is very new, but if it can translate to human beings, smell could be a target for future weight-loss regimens.

Touch

In the case of eating, touch can be referred to as texture. Texture is worth mentioning because a lot of our comfort foods rely on creamy and crispy textures.

You “taste” fat as the creaminess in cheese, ice cream, and avocado. Crispy textures are common in cookies, fries, and chips. Both textures can be leveraged to make healthy food tasty.

In the mood for something cold and creamy? Try these recipes:

Triple Chocolate Shakeology

Green Tea Ice Cream

Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Banana Sweet Quesadilla

If you prefer crisp/crunchy textures, these recipes will hit the spot:

Baked Corn Tortilla Chips (to go with this flavorful, healthier guacamole, of course!)

Crunchy Spicy Shredded Pork Tacos

Crispy Oven-Baked Chicken

Sight

Sight counts; we eat as much with our eyes as we do with our mouths. There’s a reason why those food videos and photos on Facebook and Instagram are so popular!

Dr. Brian Wansink of the Cornell Food and Brand Lab found that people are more likely to over-serve themselves if their plate is similar in color to the food they’re eating. Another reason to add all kinds of color to your cooking!

Sound

Sound can also play a role in your eating experience. You probably know quite a few people who would shun soggy fries and limp bacon, and who can blame them? The crispiness and crunchiness of some foods can be critical to its enjoyment.

We may have evolved to prefer crunch because it’s a sign of freshness. A lot of food companies capitalize on this by selling chips, crackers, pretzels and chocolate chip cookies. You can capitalize on crunch in your favor when you make healthy snacks like crispy baked zucchini fries.

Sound can negatively affect your food experience, too. Non-food related sounds such as a noisy restaurant can distract you and depress your overall enjoyment of the meal.

8 Healthy Eating Tips to Banish Boring Meals

We believe healthy eating is about making wholesome foods taste so good you’ll want to eat them all the time. Here are a few culinary tips and recipe suggestions to elevate your healthy eating game:

1. Go for full-flavored salads

Does it bother you to see a 500-calorie salad, but you don’t blink an eye at an 800-calorie cheeseburger? If so, it’s time to dash that double standard.

healthy, satiating salad with protein, tons of veggies, flavorful toppings, and a light dressing can provide you with essential nutrients and satisfy all your senses.

While it may sound counterintuitive to add calories just to get you to eat your veggies, it’s entirely possible to jazz them up without sabotaging your weight-loss goals. Be smart about what you’re adding: skip calorie bombs like candied nuts, watch portion sizes, and uses spices to add flavor and depth.

Add zest to your leafy greens with this Creamy Dill Dressing. Don’t want to give up ranch? Here’s a healthier version.

2. Try a new cooking technique

You know the healthy cooking drill: baked chicken, broiled fish and hard-boiled eggs ad nauseum.

Switch things up and experiment with new cooking techniques so you can make mouthwatering meals like this Hawaiian Salmon, which uses oven-poaching to keep the fish moist and flavorful.

Different cooking techniques create different smell and flavor compounds that can enhance the taste of food.

Same goes for cooking veggies: We know it’s easy to nuke broccoli in the microwave or steam it on the stove, but think out of the pot and try some of these recipes:

Slow Cooker Mushrooms and Herbs

Roasted Broccoli With Peanuts

Grilled Corn With Chili, Cheese, and Lime

3. Be BFFs with your pantry

Salt and pepper alone won’t cut it. You have to learn how to flavor with herbs and spicesif you want to whip up tasty meals. These flavor agents give ingredients their cuisine identity.

Plain Jane chicken, for example, can turn Italian with rosemary and oregano, or Asian with soy sauce and ginger. Beginner cooks may get overwhelmed by all the variety, so here are few herbs, spices, and blends to get you started:

  • Savory: chili powder, curry powder, rosemary, thyme, paprika, cayenne pepper, oregano.
  • Sweet: cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, cocoa powder.

4. Add some zest to your dish

Squeeze of lemon or lime juice over a savory dish to brighten and enhance its flavor, no extra salt needed!

Use lemon in place of vinegar in marinades and salad dressings. Invest in a zester so you can work the fragrant lemon peel into meat dishes and dessert. Mouthwatering Lemon Garlic Chicken Thighs? Yass!

5. Pretty-up your meals

Plate your food in a way that piques your appetite. Use a variety of fruits, vegetables and whole grains to add color and (nutrition!) to your meal.

Get creative with presentation and make Sweet Potato Egg Cups for a convenient breakfast, mason jar salads for Instagram-ready lunches, and Turkey Lettuce Wraps for dinner.

6. Health-ify your cravings

Play with flavor and texture to make a healthier version of your favorite comfort foods. If you crave tater tots, try baked Cheesy Broccoli Tots.

If you want donuts, try these Baked Pumpkin Donuts. We bet there are healthier variations for any of your food cravings. (Did someone say “Healthier Mac and Cheese“? Yes, please!)

7. Host a dinner party

Instead of shelling out dough at a restaurant, throw a dinner party to bond with your friends.

Eating with loved ones helps you build more positive memories related to healthy eating. Get them involved in meal prep: Host a build-your-own taco bar or a sushi-rolling party.

8. Add a touch of umami

Umami refers to savory, the fifth taste. There are tons of high-umami foods that can give your healthy dish a flavor punch. These include caramelized onions, shiitake mushrooms, cheese, ripe tomatoes, chicken broth, fish sauce, and even nutritional yeast.

The Bottom Line

Patience is key. Did you know that it can take upwards of 15 tries before most kids and adults will learn to like a new food?

If you’re someone who has (finally) gotten yourself to crave healthy food, you know it takes time for your eating habits to change. Be patient and pretty soon you’ll master the art of healthy eating.

I want to live until I am 100…

11825981_10207244935863163_753990045289114847_n

 

Every day I workout. In some way shape or form, I move my body! I do take rest days, but they are definitely active rest days! My Mom set the example for me at a young age. She would do her Jane Fonda tapes and I would sit and watch her and do it with her. I never once thought that she was taking time away from me! I was always inspired to move with her and to be proud of my Mom for being active. My Mom also ate clean! She is Chinese, so rice and fish were her main staple. She would also eat tons of greens! At first, I was frustrated because duh… I wanted french fries, but now that I am older, I appreciate the example she set for me.
My Mom is now in her 60’s and absolutely alive and young. She still moves her body, she works out daily, she eats clean, and she is in tip top shape. Age is just a number for her! She refuses to believe that she has to get old! My Grand Mother (her mom) always moved her body as well! Every morning she did Tai Chi and count her beads (Buddhist). She is now almost in her 90’s and she is alive and well. Some memory issues here and there, but she is still up and moving around!
So here I am 31 years old and officially an adult! I make decisions for myself now. I think back to the ladies of my heritage and respect them so much! Now I want my daughter to look back on her Mom and have the same thoughts and appreciation. I want my daughter to speak of me with joy and pride. I want my daughter to grow up active, energized and healthy.
Have you ever stopped to listen to the heartbeat of someone you love? Holy moly this is trippy. Really listen to it. Really take it in for what it is. It’s a machine pumping away for years and years. It is an organ that could stop working at any point in time. There is no recharge station or battery that you can change out if it’s not working right. All you have to make sure that thing works and stays working is what you do for preventative care. So with that being said RESPECT YOUR HOUSE. Your body is your house. It is your temple. It is sensitive, and it is vulnerable. Everything you put into your body affects your organs.
So if you were to ask me the #1 benefit of being a COACH?
Accountability for my HEALTH. BECAUSE I have people looking to me to be the example, I cannot let them down. I cannot let my health get out of hand. This is my insurance policy that I will be getting on the ground with my great grandkids and playing with them. This is my opportunity to create incredible memories for my little girl!

10 Ways to a Better YOU

Screen Shot 2017-04-11 at 6.02.55 PM

 

The amazing thing about  life is that your attitude can make all of the change in the world. Life will always throw curve balls at you. If you have not received a curve ball yet, this will still apply to you because honey… it’s coming! Curve balls are a part of life. The Lord gave us free will to learn and to grow from. When there is Free Will in a broken world, you have pain, suffering, loss, and confusion. How you react to those challenges is everything! You can decide in the moment that you are going to get up, get going and brush your shoulders off. In the face of adversity you can sit and wallow or you can pick up the broken pieces and put them back together again.

I have something very painful to share with you… I have struggled on and off with Depression and Anxiety for almost 2 years of my life. No matter how hard I tried, I just didn’t feel like myself. It became so bad and my attitude was so bad I contemplated taking my own life. Again this is not something I am proud of. In fact it is so painful to share with you. But I share it because you my friend can come back from anything! I struggled with Depression and Anxiety, I lost my Step Father, and two babies in late term pregnancy. I let those losses and that condition swallow me up. I was rendered useless, Until one day I decided that I wasn’t going to let those painful things stop me. The people that I lost … they wouldn’t want me to suffer the way I was!

I put a plan into place through the suffering. I figured if I  just got up and did these things each day, I would eventually start to heal. First thing was first though… my health. I could not tackle life the way I wanted if I was clinically Depressed and anxious. I was so low and anxious I was to afraid to leave my couch and face anyone. Going someone happy and joyous was just a reminder of how bad I felt. So off to my Natural Doc and to my Psychiatrist. I committed to a mission to get my diet right, remove the things that could plague me, and all the wile I began taking medication. Once I got that sorted out and started to feel like me again, I was ready to tackle life and move past the pain.

Every day looked like this and it helped me to become HAPPY AND STRONG AGAIN.

1. Wake up at the same time every day. Give yourself an hour before anyone else is up to read from a personal Development book! I suggest to start with 50 Ways to Yay by Alexi Panos!

2. make your beds! Really this little habit goes a long way for mental clarity.

3. Make plans for your day, no matter how painful that seems. Fake it until you make it. Get out there and do things. You may feel terrible doing it, but if you are on a mission to get better, hiding with the pain is far worse that approaching it head on.

4. Eat a diet rich in HEALTHY OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS, and greens. Protein is also important so don’t skimp on that.

5. Take a supplement of Fish Oil! Go for higher DHA and EPA!! This helps with  mental health and over all energy.

6. Commit to taking 1 walk a day.

7. WORKOUT and take a COLD Shower! Trust me… you’ll feel amazing.

8. Drink plenty of water

9. Reach out to one person a day to tell them that you love them, and if you don’t have anyone get plugged into a support group on Facebook! You can meet some great people there. Just look for common interests!

10. Here is the hardest and the one I struggled with the most. Get dressed, and put on makeup every single day. Dress the way you wish you felt or the way you want to feel.

and bonus: Find a success partner!! Someone you can count on, someone who is on a mission just like you to rock at life!!

Please OPT in to my email list so that I can send you more articles just like this one!!
Thats it for me folks!! Until next time!!
