A few more swaps…

So I’m gearing up for the launch of another weight loss program and am in the midst of sprucing up the program binder.  This time around, we’ve extended the program to 6 weeks, which means I get to plan two more classes and put together two more chapters.  This is good.  Though a 30 day program was great, I felt super rushed and wished I could have covered more.  So!  For the October launch of Nutrition Makeover, I’ll be adding specific classes devoted to Eating on the Run as well as Fact or Fiction:  Diet Trends and Supplements.

For the Eating on the Run section, I imagine I’ll be writing tips for how eat out without blowing the calorie budget.  One of these handouts will be a ‘swap this for that’ sort of article to show how, even when eating fast food, what you choose can make a big difference in your waistline.  I’ve actually done a post on this topic before and will be adding to it, including more restaurants.  Here are a few of the additions…I think you just might be shocked at a few of them!

Metabolism, Weight Loss, and Muscle Growth

Workout here. Play out there.

I recently received an email from a prospective client who is interested in making some big changes to his physique.  To paraphrase, this fellow is wanting to lose a large amount of weight (50+ pounds) while building muscle at the same time.  He also recently had his resting metabolic rate (RMR) measured (a service we offer at Gold’s Gym using indirect calorimetry) and would like to boost his RMR by 600 calories.  His question to me was whether I could help him reach those goals through a carefully crafted meal plan.  Here is my reply for your viewing pleasure!  (Some details have been changed to protect the innocent…)
