A Get Healthy and Fit Plan

A Get Healthy and Fit Plan
by Mary Howard RN

Recently people have asked me if I could recommend a dietary plan that works. I have been working on a diet plan and would like to share it with you. Before you try any new exercise or diet plan, please see your own health care professional, especially if you have special diet needs.

Try these three things to get your body in shape:

1. Start the day with a high protein, low or no carbohydrate meal. For instance, an omelet with cheese and lunch meat (no toast on the side), or a soft boiled egg. (Not necessarily a big breakfast just a protein breakfast.)

Start the day with a protein meal because when you eat Carbohydrates your body is in a glucose (Insulin) dominant phase, causing fat storage. When you are in a natural fasting state (like in the morning) or when you eat Proteins and fats, without carbohydrates, it keeps your body in the Glycogen dominant phase. During a glycogen dominant phase your body burns fat. If you eat a carbohydrate too early in the morning after fasting during the night it throws you into a Glucose dominant phase. Your body will say, "hey, my host is starving me, I better store some fat."

2. Either before breakfast or within an hour of breakfast engage in an exercise routine that raises your heart rate. It could be as simple as running around the house, sit-ups, or jumping jacks - anything to get your metabolism going.

Exercising in the morning, while in the Glycogen dominant phase, causes your body to burn fat instead of muscle.

3. No eating at least three (3) hours before bed. If you feel the need to snack at bedtime make it a protein snack like lunch meat or nuts.

Eating Carbohydrates before bedtime causes your body to have decreased production of the hormone that rebuilds your muscles during sleep.

Two or three hours after breakfast resume eating balanced meals and snacks. Some healthy examples of balanced food are as follows:

1. Try to eat lots of green and raw vegetables and fruit.

2. Fiber is a big helper to the digestive system and for burning carbohydrate calories.

3. Try to eat whole grain breads and cereals.

4. Avoid refined sugar as much as possible.

Generally eat anything you want, just try to make healthy choices. For some of you, that means avoiding fat. For others it means watching carbohydrate intake. Eat generous portions of high protein foods, especially if you are trying build muscle and lose weight.

On a Low Carbohydrate diet try to keep carbohydrate grams around 60 grams a day. Remember to subtract your fiber grams from your total carbohydrate count because fiber digests as carbohydrates.

On a low fat diet try to keep Fat grams to 30% of total calorie intake.

The best trick with either diet plan is not to mix your carbohydrates and Fats/Protein foods. Wait 3 hours to change from one food group to another.

Try out the above exercise and diet plan and let me know how it works for you. My email: gardenrn@...
