I want you to ask yourself today "How am I training my body"? Most of us understand the concept of training our muscles in a particular way to get a desired result. The type of exercise you choose i.e. BodyRock- Hiit, running, heavy weights etc. all yield different results. But have you thought about how you are training your body with food?? That's right, every day at every meal you are training your body, by how you feed it! There is a HUGE connection between what you eat and how you feel! Yet so many people don't listen to their body speaking to them through symptoms! Ask yourself:
- Are you providing your body with refined sugars and carbohydrates that get burned for fuel so quickly that your body gets hooked on this "quick fix" for energy?
- Are you starving your body and causing it to go into "preservation" mode where it wants to store everything you feed it in case you decide to over-expend your energy without giving it any fuel afterward?
- How about that 3pm crash that sends you running to the vending machine or crabbing a coffee??
- Have you trained your body to "expect" a sweet treat after dinner or before bed and now its become so use to this habit that it sends you intense cravings that you just can not ignore???
