To Cleanse or Not

Have you been thinking about a nutritional Cleanse? Let me share a few thing with you.

In this day and age the pendulum swings to rapidly. We must pause and make sure we have all the facts. I’m not a fan of most protocols. According to Precision Nutrition, “The fact is, there can be many problems with detoxes and cleanses”:

• protein deficient
• extremely low calorie
• blood sugar swings
• GI tract dysfunction
• restrictive eating and deprivation

“If doing a juice cleanse or detox diet helps a client get ready to make further helpful and sustainable changes in their life, OK. Just coach them through a cautious and monitored protocol.”

“However, we prefer helping them build life-long skills and incorporate daily practices to improve their health, performance, and body composition without extreme (and unsustainable) things like detoxes and cleanses.”

Many detoxes have you go through 7, 10 or more days of a liquefied diet and then as soon as you’re done, you balloon back up because you don’t have the skills to make it sustainable.

I prefer Zija International’s Premium Tea. It is a one time, over night, detox that clears the system of impurities. In the morning the system flushes. It doesn’t leave you shitting your brains out for days. Then we work on specific behavioral strategies to make better nutritional choices. It’s all about behavioral change.

What is your health worth to you?

What is your health worth to you?

Are you looking for:
• better respiration and circulation
• decreased joint stiffness and pain
• decreased allergy symptoms
• natural increased energy
• increased visual clarity
• better sleep
• hydration

Many people are looking for all these things. We talk about knowing what to do, however we never follow through. If you need some guidance as to how to get started towards better health, give me a call here at MVP Performance Training. 971-241-7182

Once you’ve made the decision, there are some basic recommendations I will usually make.
• See your doctor and have your blood tested. Knowing where your deficiencies are make decision making a lot easier.
• whether you train at MVP or another gym, make sure you’re taken through a thorough health history and movement screen.

Everyone has opinions, and is an expert for that matter, as to what nutritional and exercise program is best. The problem is they really don’t know, they’re just guessing.

Having detailed blood work done and being run through a thorough health history and functional movement screen, will inshore a sound program is designed to meet your specific needs.

No one can put a price on health. Too many people take it for granted and then one day it’s gone. In my opinion I will do and pay whatever it takes to live a healthy, active lifestyle and model it for my kids and family.

Over Weight

I get even more motivated to share my my weight loss/fat loss and health improvements when I read things like this. When 40% of men were overweight and 35% of men were obese. They estimate that 30% of women were overweight and 37% were obese.

I refuse to believe that you can’t do it. There is no such thing as, I Can’t. You either choose to do it or not. I’m 42 years old and in the last 6 months I have lost 25lbs and 14% body fat.

Can you imagine how amazing you would feel if you lost 10, 20 or even 25 pounds? I can tell you from my experience that you will feel amazing!

You CAN Do It!!!

Progress

Several people have asked where my recent progress has taken me.  I also wrote about My Journey and my initial progress.  Just like anyone, I have my ups and downs. We had my family in town and then back to back birthday weekends.  Food, food and more food is what it felt like.  Over the last 5 months, even with these obstacles, I have managed to stay on track.  I’ve not only met my goals, but I have reset goals and attained those goals.  I’ve said it many times over the years and a ton lately, We never plan to fail, we just fail to plan.

This week I weighed 181 pounds, down from 210 lbs on December 30th, 2014. Also important to me was keeping my strength up, which I have continued to do.  I’m looking forward to this summer.  I have some pretty lofty training goals and am excited to train with some of my boys at MVP Performance Training.

Setbacks

Setbacks happen, but you only get derailed if you don’t have a plan. I’ve said this many times and I talk to clients on a regular basis, we never plan to fail, we just build a plan.

If you want to get better at something you have to measure it. In the same conversations I have with clients, we talk about goalsetting. You can use whatever form of goalsetting you want, but the goal has to be specific, measurable, and there has to be an end date.

Two of my favorite sayings from Dan John are,

“If it’s important to you do it every day.” “If it’s not important to you, don’t do it.”

And

“The goal is to keep the goal, the goal.”

In simplistic terms you have to control the controllables. If things are outside of your control don’t worry about them. I know it sounds really simple, it is. We get bound up in so many insignificant things, that it consumes our lives.

Don’t let setbacks derail you. If you have a plan in place with specific goals, and accountability measures in place to help you control the controllables, success is yours.
