I m back my friends ! So let’ s start with something new learned from myself ! Yesterday I eated some pizza at 7 at night and i was feeling so so !I woke up this morning feeling very bad ! I wondered  why i was feeling this way and then it hit me !

You know the saying you are what you eat ! well that is so true !

This are the side effects :

– drowsiness

– extreme fatigue

– headake from hell

So the lesson is eat light because you will not feel it now but the next day it always show !!

You wake up monday morning and you are tired and feeling not so good why !!!!! I normally eat very well in the week since i work out and want to keep in shape . So here is what i realized this week !

– I  slept late and was a little slobbish !

– i ate poorly ( i went to scores took chicken with bacon and sauce and patatoes and sour cream ouffff . The next day big breakfast bacon and all kind of heavy stuff !

– I went overboard on the desert at my mother in laws not counting calories ( sugar o rama like hell !!)

This put me down  like there was no tomorrow !!! The lesson here is eat right and if you are going to cheat do it with moderation or you will become what you eat !

Hi these days aspartame or fructose and cie  is replacing real sugar in food that has less calories or no fat at all  ! ( well they say of course ! )

But there is one down side to aspartame ! did you know that  aspartame has less calories but makes you eat more !!! Yup  !what it does it gives you more rages of sugar that equals you eat much more !

The only sugar that is less damaging is splenda most diabetic uses it and it works  great !

Here are what you can use has substitute and will give you real energy !

A) maple sirup ( always good but don ‘ t abuse )

B) honey ( great and very used in cereal ,cookies etc.. * no wonder ! )

C) brown sugar  

So watch out its your body and you don ‘ t need  a sugar crash eat right !

Sugar before training is bad ! but why

Happy new year ! This first one of the year 2012 is about sugar before training or if you like eating a big meal just before going !!

Here is why people eats  before going !

A) they think it will give them energy for their training  

B) build up strenght !

C) they will be less tired

Wrong ,wrong and still wrong !!!!!

There is only one truth and here it is !  Your stomach will start digesting the sugar or what you ate all the blood will  be used for the digestion !

You will be more tired since after a meal we are always more lazy !

Here is what i suggest !

A) in the morning  oatmeal is always great before with a pre workout supplement !

B) for the rest of the day fruits ,yogurts are great way to have juice before your sessions!

So remember more blood in your muscle better is the pump so don’ t send it all in your stomach  !

In these day and age training as been left out a lot of the equation !!! But i beleive in a sound mind with a sound body ! Today i will be speaking to you about circuit training .

Here is what to do if like me you don t have the time to work out all day ! This will take you 45 to 55 min to do !

To make this work you start follow these steps ( 1 muscle per day )

A)  if you do a  set of bicep you do 10 reps not more using the ( 1-2-3 ) thechnic

B) right after you go and do 12 reps of abs

C) after 20 secondes of jump rope  intense !! if you have trouble at first don’ t worry it took me 6 month to get the hang of it !

D ) relax 30 secondes and start it back from the beginning  !

Simple and easy this will take you 55 min at the most  plus after 3 month your cardio and abs and endurance will be off the charts !!!

Stay in shape  and eat well !
