In this; the first of a three part blog series; we’ll explore the factors involved in getting and staying “thin as a rail” in the real world. Women are by far the most flattering to each other of all the clients I’ve trained in my career.

Lose the easy way! Know your proteins :-)

Choose wisely when picking proteins…less calories, more protein.

Watch out for Sneaky Calories! Just a glance at the label will fool almost anyone. At closer inspection those “feel good” foods like peanut butter, and cheese are loaded down with unwanted calories just waiting to set up camp on your hips. You may be trying to get your vital proteins from foods that are too high in calories. Here’s a simple solution. For female waist watchers a clean serving of protein (approx.18g) should be 100 calories or less. For males a clean serving of protein (approx.30g) should be 200 calories or less. That same serving of protein from peanut butter is packing 475 calories for girls and 855 calories for my guys. Good-bye buff body or hello sexy…your choice.
