Sugar!

How much sugar are we supposed to consume a day? More than 70% of Americans eat over 22 teaspoons a day of sugar. The American Heart Association recommends to stay healthy men should consume only 36 grams or 9 teaspoons and women 25 grams or 6 tablespoons of sugar. 

Here is a chart I got from Daily Burn that shows how much sugar we may be consuming daily.

Fiesta Lime Chicken

Fiesta Lime Chicken With Baked Sweet Potato and Bell Peppers

Potatoes are baked at 20-25, 405 F. Add salt, pepper, paprika, and cayenne pepper to season.

For the Fiesta Lime chicken I used frozen tyson chicken breasts, the grilled them with Bragg’s aminos and Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime.

For the bell peppers, season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!

Slim contains two proven ingredients Svetol and Super Citrimax for weight management.*

So let’s talk about Svetol; Svetol is natural plant extract of decaffeinated green coffee rich in active components. There have been many studies conducted that show Svetol helps better weight management, in other words if you use Svetol supplementation 2 to 3 times a year you will notice a body fat decrease. In a human study over 60 days, subjects taking 400 mg of Svetol daily saw more weight loss, greater reduction in BMI, and more improved muscle/fat ratio when compared to placebo subjects.

To learn more visit svetol.com

Super Citrimax patented, natural fruit extract. It is extracted from the South Asian fruit Garcinia cambogia. Super Citrimax works by inhibiting enzymes that convert carbohydrates into fat and promotes an increase in the stored formation of stored energy as glycogen. If carbohydrates are not utilized for energy they are then converted into fat and stored in the body.

This is just May Product spotlight. By the way I am huge advocate of eating healthy and staying active, by no means do I condone supplementation replacing your life. Supplementation is what it means, it supplements what you already have going on in your life naturally. It’s that little extra push that keeps you going on the those days where you can’t anymore. Stay active and eat healthy people!

Late Post and Flexible Dieting

Sorry I have been crazy busy with school and work but I’m back!!!

ruth face 2014

So I decided to give flexible dieting a go. I am currently cutting. 170g of carbs, 145g of protein and 55g of fat. Anyone out there currently doing flexible dieting and could lend me a helping hand  or their thoughts? I really want to compete but I’m not sure if I should get a coach. I feel like I motivate myself enough. It’s been about 3 weeks that I’ve been cutting and I’ve lost 3 pounds. Does that sound right? Should I cut more?? I really want to lower my body fat percentage and want to look more defined. Any suggestions or thoughts would help.ruth april 2014
